“The NFL released a statement that he made this speech in his personal capacity and that’s not the case…the NFL doesn’t share his views. So, you know, look, I love it when “People say what they say. He’s a devout Catholic. These are his beliefs and he’s welcome among them,” the Sister Act star said.

“I don’t need to believe them. I don’t have to accept them. The ladies in the audience are not obliged to accept them. The same way we want respect when Colin Kaepernick takes a knee, we want to give respect to people whose ideas are different from ours, because the man who says he wants to be president, you know who.” , she continued, referring to Donald Trump.

“He tells the way the act consists of taking away people’s rights to say what they feel. We don’t want to be that, wI don’t want to be those people.

The mother of three said: “I don’t want people to be shut down or fired for things they are willing to say. I’m going to break with you on the Colin Kaepernick comparison for this reason: Colin Kaepernick stood up for the rights of many people and said in a moment of social justice, “This reminds us that we are not there yet.” »

“What this man is doing is not only a devout Catholic, he is someone who practices what is called the traditional Latin Mass, which diverges from the majority of Catholics.”

Sara continued: “It’s comparable to being bigoted and extremist, like some religions in the Middle East and Asia.

“So this is a very extreme religion and what bothers me – as a Christian – is that when people abuse Christianity, not only do they choose the Bible, but they misinterpret it and lie about it. omission, removing parts that might have explained something a little better.

“So what I can tell him, as a Christian, is if you use this to oppress people or hold them back, you are not walking with Jesus. If you use religion, if you are more obsessed with religious rituals and practices than with the word of Jesus, you are not walking with Jesus.

“And if you use it to judge others and as a weapon to tear people down, you’re not walking with Jesus either.” So I would really encourage him to find the best parts of faith and not stray into extremist beliefs,” she added to applause from the live studio audience.
