The women of The View are no strangers to controversy. Over the last year, they have attacked almost every member of the Trump family. But last week, the hosts added a new target to their hate-filled diatribes- Christians.
Last Thursday, women on ABC’s The View carried on a discussion about the alleged affair between President Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels. The subject matter itself was not surprising because they always jump at the chance to belittle the president.
However, their vitriol took an odd and offensive turn when they brought Christians into the mix. Guest host Yvette Nicole Brown, another Trump hating liberal, suggested that a person could not be a Christian and support Trump.
“How can anyone say they follow God and this man?” asked Brown. “I feel like, and we talked about this earlier, we’re missing out on what the Bible actually says. We’re supposed to love each other, that’s all we’re supposed to do. We’re not supposed to judge, we’re not supposed to point fingers.”
Now, if you’re thinking what we’re thinking, you are probably saying, “huh?” If Christians aren’t supposed to “judge” or “point fingers,” then Brown must not be a Christian. And really, neither are any of The View co-hosts.
But alas, Christianity is not the problem. On the other hand, “political Christianity” is a major issue. You see, political Christians love to quote the Bible and twist the teachings to declare themselves morally righteous.
Only it doesn’t work that way, regardless of what side of the political aisle you’re on.
Faith and Politics
First, self-righteousness is a sin. And an ugly one at that. Second, calling-out believers and making them doubt their faith is another biblical no-no. “Therefore, let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother,” says Romans 14-13.
Our point is this- faith is not a political football. More than a few Democrats and Republicans seem to have forgotten that seeing as they endlessly assault Trump and his supporters. Trying to stab another person in the eye with the wood plucked from your own, never works.
