“Jesus Would Be the Grand Marshal of the Pride Parade”
ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin told her co-hosts on “The View” on Monday that she believed “Jesus would be the Grand Marshal of the Pride Parade.”
Hostin said: “I keep wondering if you don’t want to go to a gay club because you don’t like gay people, don’t go. Why do you have to shoot the club? If you don’t want to be a person married to a gay man, then don’t marry a gay man.
Co-host Sara Haines said, “I think it goes way beyond DC and politicians. I think we’re living in a time where people have taken a self-righteous flag in their way of life, and they’ve knocked it over people’s heads. As someone who was raised in the church, it breaks my heart that people weaponize religion the way they do. Because complacency, which can seem a bit elusive when you look at it, is the division of people. It’s looking at someone else and focusing on their differences, and you’re better than them. There are billions of quotes in the Bible about it being wrong. I was raised to love your neighbor, and we are not the judge. There is a power that has this power. There is a place for that, but we are here to be inclusive. You will never find a more inclusive place than a gay bar. I spent a lot of time with them. They are super straight.
Hostin said, “I don’t know if they’re hiding behind religion. Because I’ve said it before on this show, Jesus would be the Grand Marshal of the Pride Parade. I really, really believe it.
