The View’s Sunny Hostin said Jesus would attend a Pride parade — and anti-gay Bible thumpers completely lost it

Published

on

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.”

The sad truth behind Trump’s racist attacks: He doesn’t know how to do anything else

Published

on

Donald Trump has bragged many times that his 2016 election victory was a result of his unique political genius, saying only recently, "You know who got me elected? I got me elected!" He is convinced that his instincts are infallible and that he speaks for the American electorate when he engages in his patented demagogic bigotry. He believes this is what brought him to the White House and is what will win him a second term.

Trump catapulted a baseless smear about Omar’s marriage from the online fringes into the political mainstream

Published

on

President Donald Trump pushed a baseless smear against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that originated in the online fringes -- as he incited a North Carolina rally crowd to launch a racist chant.

The president told his supporters in Greenville that he'd heard Omar had married her brother, an evidence-free claim that was first posted online in August 2016 as her political career began to take off but has since gained traction in conservative media, reported The Daily Beast.
