Co-host blames 'Christian nationalism' for mass shootings! The View co-host Tara Setmayer linked the Uvalde shooting with ‘Christian nationalism’ (By Joe Silverstein | Fox News)

‘The View’ host: Republican Party isn’t ‘in line with American values’

On Tuesday, ABC’s "The View" co-host Tara Setmayer blamed the Uvalde school shooting on a "rise in violent Christian nationalism."

"It’s part of the Christian nationalism, this rise in violent Christian nationalism, that we have seen, which is also disturbing. They use biblical principles, they pervert them to justify this," Setmayer said.

"Particularly in Texas, this is a growing movement," she continued."It’s God, guns and Trump". Or God, guns and whatever. It’s a part of their ethos."

Setmayer, who serves as a senior advisor for the anti-Republican group the Lincoln Project, was filling in as the guest host in the lone conservative spot on the show.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg added on to Setmayer's point, appearing to blame Christians for slavery and racism.

"It’s always been this. This was the way it was down south. They used to use the Bible and say you’re not people, God doesn’t see you as people, so we don’t see you as people," Goldberg said.

Goldberg went on to call for the banning of AR-15s...........

"I don’t care NRA. You got to give that gun up. You can have your other ‘ye-ha guns’, whatever you want. The AR-15 is not a hunting gun. It is not a gun where you are going to go out and shoot your dinner," Goldberg said. "This gun is meant to kill people. That’s what it’s for. And you can’t have it anymore."

The conversation was sparked when co-host Sunny Hostin criticized Daniel Defense, a gun manufacturer, for a since deleted tweet that featured a child holding an unloaded gun with a biblical verse attached.

The View’s comments reflect a pattern by some in the media to label Christianity as a vehicle for violence and white supremacy. Last month, TIME published an article titled "It’s Time to Stop Giving Christianity a Pass on White Supremacy and Violence."

Similarly, a LA Times columnist slammed Christians who turned to faith in response to the Uvalde shooting, accusing them of supporting a "​​return to the kind of faith that allowed brutal enslavement to be the law of the land for centuries."

President Biden has faced criticism for repeating a false and debunked narrative that the 2nd Amendment did not allow people to own cannons at the time of the United States’ founding.

      Because war brings the 'War Powers Act'  The President turns into a dictator. Once the left does that America will always be at war! 

  • When the wicked thrive, rebellion increases; but the righteous will see their downfall. Proverbs 29:16   When our faith is challenged by the wicked and what appears to be their prosperity and success we must remember:

    Colossians 3:1–4


    Put On the New Man made after the Spirit and not the flesh.

    "3 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory."

    Remember our reward is not of this world it is not carnal but eternal... the wicked may appear to prosper but they fail to understand that this world is temporal... temporary and that there is a greater existence to be secured.... a richer life to be obtained in Christ.  We must not become envious or covetous of the wicked as they will soon enough receive their reward kind for kind. Be not vengeful or unforgiving.

    Instead, pray for our enemies, that they may yet repent of their wickedness and be saved.  Hell was not made for mankind and God would that all should come to the knowledge of truth in Christ Jesus... too, be saved. Should we not also embrace the lost with mercy and grace, knowing that we once were so disposed to sin?

    If we are to imitate God then we must put aside our anger and confusion... over the apparent dichotomy between the wicked and this world versus the coming Kingdom of Christ... where our reward is laid up in everlasting glory as of the sons and daughters of God... Amen.

    Strong's Hebrew: 7563. רָשָׁע (rasha) -- wicked, criminal
    • YES!

  • We can thank God for His protection and the wisdom of our forefathers who provided us with the US Constitution.  It was God's providence that provides us with the physical and spiritual means to stand before the enemies of our flesh and spirit.  We have His Armor and we bear His Sword, the Word of God.  The 2d Amendment is our backup, a warning to our enemies that we will not surrender our liberty without a fight... using all the powers God has provided for us.

    We can thank God that there is no weapon formed that can bear up against His Word and if God is for us, no one can be against us.  God is with us for the LONG RUN... Therefore, faint not, and know that with patients, we shall eat of the fruit of His Word and the Tree of Liberty... For, God has set us free. It is written that God gives us the strength to bend the bow of steel and too, send our enemies to flee before us. He teaches our hands to war and though the enemy comes at us one way, they shall flee seven ways; for, one righteous man shall send a thousand to flight and two ten thousand, before the Lord of Hosts, who shall hold all His enemies in derision.  

    • Ron, AMEN  AMEN  AMEN  AMEN  AMEN!!!!!!!!!!


    • Amen!

  • So what is wrong with being a Christian and loving America and protecting your family? So, I guess the leftist think being an atheist, hating America and not protecting your family is progressive and enlightened? 

  • The Second Amendment is not about HUNTING or recreational shooting... it's about self-defense against criminals and rogue governments...  Whoopi you are so jaded and biased that you are unable to read the simple and clear meaning of the 2nd Amendment.

    • Ron, AMEN  AMEN  AMEN  AMEN  AMEN!!!!!  Once again you are right on the button!!!!!!!!!!


    • Lets not forget Whoopi is anti A2 BUT she has armed body guards! She should set the example and fire them all and then march down the street and see what happens! 

      I bet after 10 minutes she'll starting looking a little closer at the 2A
