“I identify with the fact that gay people, once they are ‘out’, have to deal with that — they want to be honest, and yet people are out to get them. I find that that’s true on The View – I have been saying things and I have a lot of enemies on the right – people on Twitter etc who hate me, hate me, because of my politics. If I check their profiles, two words always come up: “Jesus” or “Trump” — as though I don’t love Jesus. I love Jesus, too. I’m a Catholic girl. I was confirmed. I love Jesus, too, so don’t tell me about Jesus. That pisses me off.”—Comedienne and The View co-host Joy Behar on her longtime support for LGBTQ people. Behar also added that she fears for the future of marriage equality given the addition of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and that the fight for marriage equality also inspired her to marry longtime boyfriend Steve Janowitz.
They have to pack the court if we have a semblance of a chance to keep our God given rights that others take for granted ie marriage equality
tRump has already packed the court. It will take years to unpack.
Is anyone else offended by this statement?
I’m not. Just purely looking at the statement as it stands, that is.
There are worse paths to walk. Is it lily white and pure? No. Does that fact offend me? No.
Is it true? Now that I can’t evaluate.
I’m not “offended” but she is full of crap. There is no comparison to her flapping her yap to someone just walking down the street and both getting yelled at. Just another entitled Karen.
But I’m not surprise that the same old right wing troll account under it’s new screename “Monkey1” is feigning outrage. Nothing Republicans hate worse than a woman with an opinion.
joy behar is a bigot. she’s just trying to pander. look at her record. ugh this bitch.
She’s a long time supporter of GLBTQ rights.
No queen, sherri shepard was the fat nasty stupid loud bigot. Purchase a clue.
Ummm ok. Not really the same thing but sure.
Not even remotely close to being the same thing. She has people hating her because she likes to stir the pot not because of anything that is beyond her control to change,
Behar is a legend in her own mind.
So was your mom but she got pregnant anyway now she needs to make restitution
Is it the same thing? No.
But does she deal with sexism and right wingers who threaten to kill her just because she’s public? Yes.
It’s like when people compare racial discrimination, anti-LGBTQ bigotry, sexism, etc. They’re all different, but they all are horrible ways that racists and bigots try to control and harm us.
Good grief, people. She’s just saying she identifies with gay people. She’s an ally and has been for decades. She’s allowed to make comparisons without the left canceling her.
Joy is great! I don’t believe in the religious stuff such as Jesus being the son of god, etc. By this time, whether he existed or not, Jesus has become a justifier of both the good and bad parts of our murderous personalities. I’m sure Allah, Shiva and all the rest are barnacled down with the same moral encrustations.

Get ’em Joy! Funny how Christian Republican’s believe that everything that happens in this country has to be centered around their religion. Sorry but separation of church and state was created for a very good reason. I love how the Church of Satan shoves it in their face to show them that in this country if you do something for one religion you have to do it for all and that just chaffes their behinds! The documentary about their plight was a good watch. I think it was called “Hail Satan”.
She’s absolutely horrible
Hi one of Roy Ajax’s other screenames.
Of course you hate Joy. She’s many of the things all Republicans hate. A woman who is employed, speaks up, Jewish, etc.
Uhm, Cam, did you read her quote in this article? She clearly states that she’s Catholic, “as though I don’t love Jesus. I love Jesus, too. I’m a Catholic girl. I was confirmed.”
I like Joy. The comparison is simply an analogy.
Joy Behar is a very negative HAG!! She has been that same way since the shows Concepcion. Didn’t like her then, 20 yrs. later, still don’t like her. She needs to retire again, she’s pushing 80! I stopped watching years ago when they let Rosie Perez go. Once BW retired, and they had a merry go round of strong women that were let go after 1 yr. due to their strong views and voices tells you the new EP’s and sponsors didn’t like it and tried to silence them. Sad!!
Hi Roy Ajax, Monkey1, Openminded, TheAbsoluteTruth, Therealtruth, and whatever other screenames you’re using.
We get it, you hate any woman who speaks up and it’s a Trump supporter.
You aren’t slick, you try the same things all the time, and it’s boring.
Joy is a much better ally of the LGBTQ community than hypocrite Me-again McCain who directly funds her husband”s vociferously homophobic and transphobic media website The Federalist.
Her husband’s The Federalist even has recently taken a stand against same-sex marriage hoping the new Supreme Court majority will overturn Obergefell.
