By |2017-03-20T17:50:40+00:00March 13th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A couple of weeks ago, an offensive video was posted on YouTube by Sarah Silverman. Silverman is a champion of abortion rights, but that hardly makes her a bigot. What makes her an anti-Christian bigot is her video that featured her talking to a Jesus character about abortion. The language she used was so vulgar—she ended [...]
