Liberals in the entertainment industry are becoming more and more hostile to people of faith, particularly Christians, even in the talk show world, but what “The View” just did to the name of Jesus has people all across the country fuming.

During last Friday’s episode, the daytime talk show actually censored, as in bleeped, the name of Jesus, as if that is an offensive word that is not to be uttered on television.

Yes, this actually happened.

What does it say about the state of our culture when we think of the name of Jesus, the Savior, as worse than a curse word? It certainly doesn’t bode well for the future, that’s for sure.

The hosts were discussing a British study that showed that many of the U.K.’s Christian citizens wanted to ignore four of The Ten Commandments, when co-host Paula Faris, a Christian, explained how things were in her house when she was a kid.

“My parents were really strict about what we said in the home. We couldn’t say “Oh my God,” we couldn’t say “JC,” we couldn’t say “(Jesus),” she explained. But the show censored Jesus’s name from the broadcast.

“Unless you were praising Him,” she continued. “And then you could say ‘(Jesus),’” which was, again, censored.

The censorship was not appreciated on social media.

Here’s the segment in question:

There’s oh so much here to talk about that one could write several pieces from this thing and still probably not exhaust the various topics that need straightening out in this mess.

For now, let’s just stick to the whole “censorship of Jesus name” bit, as that’s what’s absolutely intolerable here.

First off, I’d get censorship if it was using His name in vain. That’s highly offensive to anyone who loves God and understands that such an utterance is blasphemy.

But it was censored in the “praise Jesus” portion too, which is totally ridiculous. “Jesus” isn’t a curse word, it’s the name of God’s only Son, our Lord, the Savior. It’s a name to be honored and revered.

It would be one thing if censorship was used to protect the honor of Jesus’ name, but it’s not. It’s used here as a means of saying the name of Jesus is offensive. That’s what modern society thinks of Christianity.

Let’s hope the backlash from this incident is of such a magnitude the liberals running this show learn the error of their ways and avoid such censorship in the future.
