In response to a tweet by a Catholic bishop, The View co-host Sunny Hostin said she knows Jesus would attend a pride parade “with pride,” further contending that “being at a pride parade would be much safer for a child than it has been to be in a Catholic church for many years.”
Over the weekend, Bishop Thomas Tobin from Rhode Island tweeted admonitions about upcoming pride parades.
“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ ‘Pride Month’ events held in June,” the tweet read. “They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children.”
As a Catholic, Sunny had a different view. “This practicing Catholic will be supporting and attending LGBTQ Pride events. And so will my Catholic children. You should be ashamed,” she tweeted.
While on air Monday, Hostin voiced her opinion that her faith is contrary to anti-gay views. “My faith always taught me, ‘What would Jesus do?’ And I know Jesus would attend that Pride Parade,” she said.
“And I also know that God is love, Jesus is love, love is love,” she continued. “For a Catholic bishop to come out and say something like that given the history of pedophilia in the Catholic church, given what the Catholic church has hidden about the abuse of children, some would say that being at a pride parade would be much safer for a child than it has been to be in a Catholic church for many years,” she added.
