    Joy Behar then said: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.”

    Behar said hearing voices is a “mental illness” before Sherri Shepard offered a limited defense of Pence.

    “As a Christian, that’s just par for the course,” Shepard said “You talk to Jesus, Jesus talks back. What concerns me is, how long is the conversation with Jesus?”


    This would have never been tolerated a few decades ago.

    If this was about a Muslim, someone would get fired. This is why so many in the Media don't get "Flyover States" and why Trump is president.

    Didn't George Carlin do jokes like that like 40 years ago?

    I find her comments distasteful at best.

    Juan Williams was fired from NPR because he said Muslims made him nervous when he was on a plane.

    She would have been fired. Now, she gets invited to all the right parties.

    LOL. I cant imagine the "right parties" are ones that ancient comedians like Joy Behar are specially invited to.

    So I guess your point is that if Behar says something bad about Muslims she has a job waiting for her at Fox?

    Not much coverage in the lamestream media of Joy Behar's disrespectful comments about Vice President Pence's Christian faith; a Google news search for "Joy Behar" turns up mainly just articles on conservative sites about it.

    But never fear, the story will eventually get some backhanded coverage in the media, because sooner or later somebody on the right will say something over the top in their zeal to criticize Behar. And that will get covered, of course.

    Yes....and as you said.."JOKES". Comments that were controversial were his routine, and taken as such. Behar's comments are not a comedy act--she's dead serious. Therein lies the huge difference between Carlin and Behar......Which should be obvious.:rolleyes:

    Another perfect example of straight lines seriousness as compared to a comedy routine---try to imagine Don Rickles comments & jokes being said in a serious way as if they were really someone's stance....such as Behar's was. In the past, there might have been lawsuits out the ying-yang, and most surely public opinion would be negative towards those types of comments being expressed as serious statements. Rickle's routine was an strictly an act, same as Carlin--everyone knew it was an act, and took no offense to the act, and everyone laughed along with Rickles, Carlin, and all who did that.

    Behar was being her typical self---arrogant, liberal, condescending bitch of the highest order. You can't compare Carlin & Behar in the least.

    Sorta odd that Behar speaks of another's "mental illness" when she proves, yet again, that "mental illness" manifests itself in many forms.

    I don't think so. I've been an atheist for my entire adult life, but I am a strong believer in the power of belief. It can be a powerful thing. I've no doubt that they hear voices b/c they so badly want to.

    I think science has a long way to go wrt the connection between the mental & the physical.
