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.

Myanmar’s Suu Kyi set to make history in Hague genocide case
Former democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi is set to make legal history when she defends Myanmar in The Hague this week against charges of genocide targeting the Buddhist state's minority Rohingya Muslims.
The tiny west African state of Gambia, acting on behalf of the 57-nation Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, will ask the International Court of Justice to take emergency measures to halt Myanmar's "ongoing genocidal actions".
But in a highly unusual move, the office of Nobel Peace laureate and Myanmar civilian leader Suu Kyi has said she will lead a team to the UN's highest court, based in the turreted Peace Palace in the Netherlands.
Sesame Street still going strong after 50 years
Generations of children around the world have grown up learning their ABCs and 123s from the lovable muppets on "Sesame Street," and as the pioneering television program turns 50, it's as popular as ever.

Since its debut in November 1969 on American public television, the famous address has taken on many forms, in more than 150 countries.
In Afghanistan, it's "Baghch-e-Simsim." In Latin America, it's "Plaza Sesamo." And in Arabic-speaking countries, it's "Iftah Ya Simsim."
