Fox News Snowflakes Triggered By Joy Behar Calling Fundamentalists ‘Mentally Ill'
In a recent appearance on Fox News, President Trump’s faith advisor Pastor Jeffress expressed all the fake outrage at yet another instance of so-called Christian “persecution.”
Jeffress was clearly triggered by a conversation on The View surrounding Vice President Mike Pence’s faith.
First co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out her reservations about White House staff making decisions based on their faith alone.
“I’m a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my Vice President speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him,” Hostin said.
Co-host Joy Behar chimed in with her own thoughts on Pence’s fundamentalist religious beliefs.
"It’s one thing to talk to Jesus; it’s another thing when Jesus talks to you," Behar said. “It’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct… hearing voices.”
Pastor Jeffress wasted no time in misconstruing her words, claiming Behar was mocking Pence for saying he talks to Jesus. All Behar implied was that hearing actual voices in your head is a well-known sign of mental illness — regardless of the fact that you were praying.
Jeffress then cited this sound bite as yet another instance of religious persecution and intolerance by the political left.
“To the left, when it comes to attacking conservative Christians, it is always open season," Jeffress said. "Christians are tired of being bullied for their faith in the public square.”
Jeffress then went on to spin disagreement about religion as if that was the same as oppression.
“This once again shows the hypocrisy of the left. The left cries for tolerance and yet they are the most intolerant people when it comes to beliefs with which they disagree.”
What Jeffress fails to realize is that tolerance does not mean holding your tongue when you hear others say things you disagree with. You can be tolerant of religious people’s right to practice their faith while simultaneously criticizing the validity of their beliefs.
All Jeffress succeeded in doing was projection, playing the oppressed snowflake victim because someone dared to disagree with his ideology.
Joy Behar and the left does respect your right to hold whatever ridiculous beliefs you want; but you don’t have the right to not be offended when others merely disagree with you.
