The View co-host Sunny Hostin blasted Bishop Thomas Tobin on Monday after he warned Catholics that Pride Month events “are especially harmful to children.”
“My faith always taught me ‘What would Jesus do?’ I know Jesus would be attending that pride parade,” Hostin said. “I also know that God is love and Jesus is love and Love is love.”
“For a Catholic bishop to come out and say something like that given the history of pedophilia in the Catholic Church, given what the Catholic Church has hidden about the abuse of children, some would say that being at a pride parade would be much safer for a child than it has been to be in a Catholic Church for many years,” she added.
Hostin’s comments, as Queerty noted on Wednesday, were not well-received among some members of the faithful. The conservative Daily Wire publication suggested that Hostin was wrong, describing LGBT Pride parades as an event that “celebrates a sexual morality contrary to thousands of years of Jewish and Christian teachings.”
But other people were less tactful in there disagreement with The View host:
Blasphemy! Sunny Hostin has an ever lower IQ than AOC. In-fact, she makes Shelia Jackson and Maxine Waters look like they deserve the Nobel for Dumb Chitz. I don't think that dolt even has AIR left in her head. She puts the Jack, in JackA**.https://t.co/1jWt8BmXFv

@TheView Sunny Hostin's mind is poisoned by the virus of liberalism that is anti-family, anti-decency, anti-principles, anti-everything that is normal. To suggest that kids are safer in a LGBT event than in a church is the final insult from this low-class show. Go to hell all!

@Sunny Hostin: WRONG! You obviously do not know a DAMNED THING about what the Bible says, especially what is stated in Genesis Chapter 19 and Romans Chapter 1 … You can take your foot out of your a** now. https://t.co/f1Nuf4Cw8i

Sunny you are seriously disillusioned. Jesus would not, and will not ever attend a parade promoting Homosexuality. 1Corinthians 6:9 says that Homosexuals will not enter Heaven. Listen to Jesus not frauds like Sunny Hostin.

Grieving British parents react on CNN to seeing Trump’s defense of woman who killed their son
On CNN Thursday, grieving British parents Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were shown footage of how President Donald Trump reacted to the motor vehicle death of their teenage son Harry at the hands of American diplomatic wife Anne Sacoolas.
Trump has refused to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas to face punishment for her actions — and tried to defuse the situation by arranging a surprise meeting between Sacoolas and the parents which fortunately never took place.
"Radd, as you watched all of that play out, describe the mood in the room and what you left feeling after that — after that surprise," said anchor Alisyn Camerota.
MSNBC conservative goes down in flames trying to separate Trump’s incompetence from his corruption
MSNBC conservative Noah Rothman met furious pushback when he dismissed poll numbers as insignificant showing a growing majority of Americans support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The "Morning Joe" contributor argued that those numbers reflected the president's approval rating and would not exert any pressure on congressional Republicans, but instead place greater pressure on Democrats to make their case for impeachment.
"It's incumbent on Democrats to make this case," Rothman said. "Right now they are presenting a united front because it's still primary season. Once we get into the general (election campaign) there will be more pressure on them to explain their position, but it's incumbent on Democrats to make the case."
The Trump murder video is no joke: It’s an encouragement to ramp up the violence
Donald Trump is not a “friendly fascist.” Unlike Ronald Reagan, the prototype for that concept, Trump does not pretend to be harmless. He does not offer up fake smiles and a cheerful nature, or display empathy and human concern for others, feigned or otherwise.
This article first appeared in Salon.
Donald Trump is direct, obvious and public in his threats against democracy, the Constitution and the rule of law. Trump and his movement are working to destroy America’s multiracial democracy through appeals to a mythic past that will “Make America Great Again.” In practice this means undoing all the social progress and democratic reforms of the last century or more and returning to a society where white people — rich white male Christians, in particular — are fully in control over all aspects of American society for all time.
