Evangelical leader Franklin Graham said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show that every Christian in the nation should be offended and alarmed by recent anti-Christian rhetoric that was broadcast on ABC’s “The View.”
Joy Behar, one of the co-hosts of ABC’s “The View,” suggested last week that Christians who listen to the voice of God may be mentally ill.
Behar’s remarks were in response to a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman, the reality television star turned White House staffer turned reality television star.
“As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence — everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Omarosa said in a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother.”
“I am Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” Omarosa told her fellow contestants.
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar declared.
“We are mentally ill because we believe in God and we believe in his son Jesus Christ? I’m offended by what she said,” Graham told me.
“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said Wednesday on C-SPAN. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
"View" co-host Sunny Hostin called the vice president’s Christianity “dangerous.”
“When you have a Mike Pence who now puts this religious veneer on things and who calls people values voters, I think we're in a dangerous situation. Look I'm Catholic. I'm a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my vice president, um -- speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him,” she said.
But let’s be honest – had Joy Behar said about gay people what she said about Christians – she would’ve been fired on the spot.
