Why ABC is Getting Blasted for “The View’s” Attack on VP Pence’s Christianity
“I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness. And I’d like to laugh about it, but I really can’t. It’s just wrong. And it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life.” – Vice-President Mike Pence

ABC is facing mounting criticism after its panelists on “The View” mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. Detractors of “The View” are focusing on the fact that ABC News, which claims to be an unbiased broadcast news operation, oversees such a nakedly partisan program with one “token” conservative.
The women of “The View” took a shot at Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.”
Sunny Hostin said it’s “interesting” that former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman recently said that Pence talks to Jesus and believes Jesus tells him things. Hostin said she is a “faithful” Catholic but doesn’t want her vice president “speaking in tongues.” Joy Behar then said, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you… that’s called mental illness.”
ABC News paints itself as a fair news organization but its longtime slogan, “See the Whole Picture,” often doesn’t apply to “The View,” according to many critics.
“It has become jarring how fixated the show is on politics and how slanted the table is,” Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News.
Wulfsohn said it’s ABC News’ prerogative if network executives decide that having four outspoken liberals and a single “token” conservative is “profitable” but the decision “does a great disservice” by marginalizing the view of roughly half the country.
…Pence himself didn’t appreciate the comments and slammed ABC News Wednesday on C-SPAN.
During the Obama Administration, I wrote an ongoing series of articles highlighting “The War on Christianity” being waged on an almost daily basis by that President and his Administration, along with the Democratic Party’s minions in the Main Stream Media.
Now, we have a new President and Vice-President, who, gasp, actually support Christianity in America and are not shy about invoking the Name of God Almighty in their public speeches.
Heaven forbid! Well…Heaven doesn’t forbid…it encourages.
But, the Harpies on “The View” certainly want to.
The thought of an omnipresent God interferes with Modern Liberals’ belief that they are the most important thing in the universe.
You see, as long as they are the master of their own destiny, which in fact they are, because God gives us free will, their selfish behavior and their sinful lifestyle, present no personal consequences to them, and therefore, do not keep them awake at night. And yet, when you enter into a conversation with a member of this hedonistic generation, you soon find out that they aren’t as personally happy with their lifestyle choices, as they want you to believe that they are. Consequently, this whole effort by Political and Social Liberals alike, to push a new set of morals, values, and ethics on average Christian Americans, stems from the fact that they are all miserable, selfish, little cretins, who want their poor lifestyle choices validated and deemed as normal.
As I have stated before, America remains 75% Christian. And, this fact drives the Far left, including the current “Selfish Generation”, absolutely crazy….and desperate.
The Pharisitical reaction of Joy Behar and the other “ladies” on the show (I’m being charitable…after all, it’s Sunday morning) to Vice-President Pence’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ boggles the mind…but, it shouldn’t.
The disconnect shown by the self-appointed tribunal of all that is Liberally deemed to be acceptable Christianity is the same exact disconnect shown by the East and Left Coasts in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Unlike Modern Liberalism, Christianity as practiced by Americans is not just one “flavor”, or a “Hive-mind”, if you will.
And, while Ms. Behar and the rest of them were having a great time sitting in judgment of Vice-President Pence and his relationship with Our Lord and Savior, the overwhelming majority of Americans who proclaim him to be their Savior, as well, were offended by the intolerance of those who bill themselves as being the most tolerant people in any room that they walk into.
For you see, gentle readers, Christianity has never been about who can talk the talk.
It’s about walking The Walk.
Mike Pence walks The Walk.
And, like the Liberal Woman whom they supported in the 2016 Presidential Election, it is very apparent that the Modern Day Pharisees on ABC’s “The View” only talk the talk.
And, in the end, as history is their witness, they will appear to have overestimated their collective intelligence, also.
