Whoopi Goldberg and her fellow clucking hens on ABC’s “The View” are in hot water with Americans again after they made a series of derogatory comments about Christians, particularly Evangelicals, and their support for Trump.
That began when Sunny Hostin, one of the co-hosts of “The View,” attacked evangelical Christians for supporting Trump and remaining steadfast supporters of him. She ignored that his pro-Christian policies and anti-abortion judges, as seen by SCOTUS’ Dobbs decision, are more important to Christians than Trump’s personal failings.
In any case, speaking on the support of Christians for Trump, Hostin said: “What was shocking to me was the hypocrisy of the evangelical community, booing at the truth. I mean, we can all have differences of opinions, but the facts remain the same. And, he did these things, so it’s almost like they were going, ‘la la la la la la la la’ like little kids, because they’re still going to vote for him.”
Whoopi then responded with a theologically idiotic comment, saying that “different roads” lead to God and saying that Evangelicals now are different than Evangelicals of days past. In her comments, she insinuated that it is impossible for Christians to support a conservative candidate or a candidate with personal failings, whatever the pro-Christian policies of that candidate.
As she put it: “The evangelicals are not the evangelicals of my youth. I’ve always known evangelicals. And while we have different roads to God, they’re, you know, basically the same roads. But I don’t know who these folks are.”
She then continued to ramble, suggesting that God would be against Evangelicals because of their support for Trump. She also attacked Evangelicals for allegedly thinking that they aren’t flawed, an absolutely idiotic claim given how humble many faithful Christians are, while ignoring that perhaps Trump is a flawed but good person as well.
Attacking them for supporting Trump and for supposedly being haughty, Whoopi said: “You know, the thing about evangelicals that we all have to remember is that they’re human beings. They’re people and they’re flawed, like all of us, so, you know, when they wake up and realize that God may not be on their side the way they think he is, because someone who says, ‘I’m doing this for you,’ sounds an awful lot like, you know –”
That’s when Hostin interrupted and said, “The great J.C.,” in reference to Jesus Christ. Goldberg said, “Yeah, yeah,” and then Hosting accused Evangelicals of falling for the lies of a “charlatan,” saying, “Many of them are such good people and being taken by this charlatan, which is distressing.” How someone who appointed the judges that got rid of Roe is a “charlatan” to conservatives is unclear.
In any case, people on Twitter were predictably furious and fired back at Whoopi. “Woke corporations should wake up and realize that the consumer may not be on their side,” one commenter noted. “God isn’t on her side that’s for sure,” said another.
