OPINION|Barry Richard: Disney/ABC News Attacks Christians
Disney/ABC News attacks Vice President Mike Pence and his Christian beliefs and gets away with it.
The incredibly self-righteous Joy Behar, in her role as co-host of the ABC News vehicle, "The View," has suggested that Pence is a few crackers short of a full box for saying he communicates with Jesus.
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you… that’s called mental illness.”
Pence defended himself against Behar's attack:
"To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong.
“It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
When confronted with the fact that she had just attacked more than half of her audience in an effort to smear Pence, Behar offered this:
“I don’t mean to offend people but apparently I keep doing it. It was a joke.”
Christophobes like Behar tend to live on the left and often reject character judgments unless of course, they are doing the judging. Case in point, Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct and the killing of unborn babies under the guise of a woman's right to govern her own body, drew crickets from the left.
Behar is a waste of skin in my view and what she says quickly dissipates like the hot air it is. What is wrong here is that Disney, which owns ABC allows "The View" to operate under the ABC News Division rather than the Entertainment Division.
In essence, Disney considers "The View" crew to be news people. Such intolerant views being expressed by ABC newsies is simply inexcusable.
Talk about FAKE NEWS!
