MRC Announces Campaign: Hold 'The View' Advertisers Accountable for Anti-Christian Hate

The Media Research Center on Wednesday announced a campaign to hold ABC's advertisers accountable for the anti-Christian bigotry spewed on The View. We are encouraging our grassroots army to call The View’s sponsors and let them know how upset you are about a show that smears Christians as “dangerous” and “mentally ill.” 

Go to http://stopattackingchristians.com/ and let top sponsors, such as Clorox, Gerber, Oreo and Home Advisor, know what you think of Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin’s comments. 

On February 13, Behar trashed Vice President Mike Pence and other Christians, deriding: “That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct. Hearing voices.” Co-host Sunny Hostin mocked Pence’s faith as “dangerous.” 

As of Wednesday, an overwhelming 29,200 people have called ABC and demanded the network apologize for the ugly, bigoted smear. 

Vice President Mike Pence responded to the repulsive comments this way: 

“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong. It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
