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.

REVEALED: Far-right extremists are circulating plans to lock down Arizona streets if Trump is re-elected
On Saturday, The Arizona Republic reported that far-right paramilitary groups are circulating plans to lock down neighborhoods in the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area in the event that President Donald Trump is re-elected, supposedly to police left-wing protesters.
"In Arizona, the head of the Prescott-area chapter of the Oath Keepers group, which recruits military and law enforcement officers, has warned residents to be prepared to protect their neighborhoods from feared extreme left-wing protesters who would be upset should President Donald Trump be re-elected," reported Richard Ruelas. "Part of that the pro-Trump group'splan involved closing streets and assigning monitors to control access, according to a planning document shared with The Republic."
Conservatives are hopping mad that their clumsy Hunter Biden smear is a flop
Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.
In 2016, Steve Bannon did an amazing job rolling out the Clinton Foundation nontroversy. He gave The New York Times and CNN early access to Peter Schweizer's book, Clinton Cash, and the outlets gave it mainstream credibility. Later, when the Uranium One story was thoroughly debunked, it didn't matter. The foundation remained under a pall of fuzzy suspicions.
GOP insiders give Pence little chance of ever being president after four years spent defending Trump: report
On Saturday, writing for The Washington Post, Ben Terris reported that many Republican consultants and insiders believe that Vice President Mike Pence's presidential ambitions are doomed, for several reasons.
"If you list the top 10 most likely people to have a strong shot at the nomination, maybe Mike Pence makes number nine or 10," said former Marco Rubio presidential campaign manager Terry Sullivan in the piece. "Maybe." Former Jeb Bush campaign spokesman Tim Miller agreed, saying, "I could maybe see him becoming the nominee, but president? I just don’t see it."
