Some of the ladies of “The View” have some serious issues. They apparently have no issue bashing Christianity and Vice President Mike Pence’s beliefs as “mental illness.” But Pence wasn’t going to let it stand, defended his faith and blasted them for their anti-Christian comments.
The View panel was discussing Omarosa Manigault leaving the White House and appearing as a contestant on “Celebrity Big Brother.”
From Biz Pac Review:
“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,” she said in a clip from the reality show which was shared on “The View.”
“I am Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” she said to the other contestants.
Behar interjected with her unique brand of wisdom.
“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 said, before going on to trash the vice president for his self-proclaimed practice of refusing to be alone with a woman unless his wife is with him.
In the light of all the sexual assault and sexual harassment scandals, Pence’s practice of not meeting alone with a woman is being proven more and more intelligent.
But Behar continued to mock Pence.
“Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room,” she smirked, to the delight of the audience.
Pence didn’t stay quiet in the face of the attack.
“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.”
“My faith sustains me in all that I do,” he told C-SPAN, adding that “The View” hosts insulted the “vast majority of the American people who cherish faith.”
“It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he said.
Behar backed off a little after Pence’s response and likely getting pushback against her attacks.
Behar took an ever-so-slight step back later on Tuesday though she still finds anyone talking to or hearing from Jesus should be suspect.
“I think Mike Pence, say what you want about him and his religiosity. I don’t think he’s mentally ill. Even though he is saying he hears voices I don’t think he’s that crazy,” she said.
The answer is that because it’s Pence and because it’s Christianity, she thinks she had a free pass to just say anything, no matter how crazy or hateful it was.
This isn’t the first time she’s done something like this and probably wouldn’t be the last.
And had she said it about any other group she would have been called out big time by MSM.
