• Whoopi Goldberg on Christian Syrian Refugees: ‘Hitler Was a Christian’

    Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar blasted Republicans on Tuesday’s The View for arguing that only Christian refugees should be allowed into the United States in wake of the Paris terrorist attack that killed 129 people last week.

    GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz and House Republicans are pushing forward a proposal  that would ban Syrian refugees from entering the country because of potential terrorists among them. Cruz however, insists that Christians fleeing persecution should be protected.

    “Republican candidates like Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz think America should only accept Christian Syrian refugees,” Whoopi said. “Donald Trump says we should strongly consider closing the mosques. Is this really going to help root out ISIS?”

    Behar argued that it’s “not very Christian” to do that, regardless of the danger posed by ISIS and the fact that at least one of the terrorists who attacked Paris on Friday was a Syrian refugee.

    “The irony of saying that only Christians could come is not very Christian to say that, is it?” she asked.

    Christians aren’t necessarily law-abiding citizens, Behar argued

    “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian, just saying,” she said. Yet,  McVeigh described himself as an agnostic in a letter written shortly before his execution.

    “There have been a lot of monster Christians,” Goldberg said in agreement. “Hitler was a Christian.”

    Hitler–who planned to destroy German Christianity, replace Bibles and crucifixes at altars with Mein Kampf  and substitute all crosses with the swastika–was anti-Christian.
