Joy Behar apologizes for equating hearing jesus's voice to mental illness.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/joy-behar-of-the-view-apologizes-for-christianity-comment/ar-BBKanUh?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp



I'm not sure this was apology-worthy. No demonstrable example of an individual actually hearing such a voice, rather than just simple delusions.

1. How does one know if the voice in one's head is really Jesus?

I mean, if Pence talks to Jesus, who am I to question him, really? Oh...wait...never mind.

3. Hearing Jesus is mental illness. Claiming you hear Jesus is being a liar.

10. Evidently defending liars means attacking those who speak the truth

The truly strange part is how do they separate the nuts from the liars? If someone claims god told them to shoot up a church, they must be crazy, but if you say god told you to invade Iraq killing hundreds of thousands in the process you get a pass.

5. Steve Harvey calls atheists "idiots" and goes about his day as if nothing happened.

Behar didn't even criticize Christianity itself. In fact, she seemed to encourage it.

7. Oprah said

something to the effect that she is waiting for God to tell her whether or not to run. I don't think she is mentally ill. I think most everyone here would vote for her if she were on the ballot against Trump in 2020.

8. It was troubling when Bush MK II claimed he was guided by god at various points.

I'd be similarly concerned if someone on our side of the fence claimed the same.

9. Actually I hope she doesnt run.

That is not the only example of her loopy thinking.
