It was a mocking bit, no biggie for atheists but at least somewhat insulting for Christians. But the deeper takeaway is the hypocrisy it reveals of the left.
Reel back the time to a few weeks ago when “The View” host Joy Behar said this about vice president Mike Pence: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.”
Behar made the remarks in response to a clip of fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s similar slam of Pence, made on “Celebrity Big Brother” in context of discussing how little she thought of her former boss, President Donald Trump.
That one went like this: “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. … Everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”
Pence, of course, fought back, telling the news site Axios that Behar’s comments only showed “how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people.”
