The ABC network is facing backlash from Christians who were offended by its decision to bleep out “Jesus” each time “The View” co-host Paula Faris said His name on the show last Friday.
The hosts of the talk show were discussing the results of a British poll The Christian Post reported on that found most Britons believe only six of the Ten Commandments are relevant today.
During the ladies’ discussion, Faris spoke about her upbringing and said she was taught by her parents to not use the Lord’s name in vain.
“My parents were really strict about what we said in the home. We couldn’t say ‘Oh my God.’ We couldn’t say J.C. We couldn’t say [bleeped out],” Faris said during the show. “We could say ‘Jeez’ … unless you were praising Him, and then you could say, [bleeped out].”
It was clear the words bleeped out were Jesus Christ and Jesus.
