The View’s Sunny Hostin said Jesus would attend a Pride parade and antigay Twitter is in a snit

Jesus at pride

On Monday’s taping of The View, the ladies discussed Bishop Thomas Tobin’s recent tweet reminding all Catholics to hold firm to their homophobic beliefs during Pride month.

“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ ‘Pride Month’ events held in June,” Tobin tweeted on Saturday. “They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin, who is a practicing Catholic, wasn’t having any of Tobin’s homophobic nonsense.

“I tweeted out that my Catholic children will be attending Pride events as this Catholic will,” she told her colleagues on Monday’s show. “And you know, my faith always taught me, ‘What would Jesus do?’ And I know Jesus would be attending that Pride parade, with pride.”

But she didn’t stop there.

“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.”

Mic drop.

Cue the Twitter meltdown in 3… 2… 1…
