Comic Book Convention Bans Christian Actor Kevin Sorbo Because ‘He’s Pals With Sean Hannity’
East Coast Comicon founder Cliff Galbraith posted on Facebook last week that he banned Christian actor Kevin Sorbo from his ucoming convention because Sorbo is friends with Sean Hannity.
“I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” Galbraith wrote. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. I just can’t do it.” The post has since been pulled. His company declares on its website, “Our mission is to bring great guests and keep comics and its creators the focus of our shows.” Apparently not all great guests.
Galbraith’s leftism is evident in his social media posts as well as last year’s conference program. It featured the Statue of Liberty surrounded by vipers with names like “homophobia,” “misogyny,” “intolerance,” “xenophobia” and other leftist buzzwords.
While Galbraith may brag, his brand of Christianphobia is nothing new for Sorbo, best known for his starring role in the television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Sean Hannity produced his latest movie, the faith-based Let There Be Light, which was released in 2017.
“There’s a negativity towards Christians in Hollywood,” Sorbo told FOX411. “And a negativity towards people who believe in God.”
“There’s so much bashing going on in the media and world for people who believe in God,” Sorbo said. “I’m just not afraid of the [politically correct] crowd. I’ll go right back at them.”
“I think ultimately, the sleeping giant is waking up. People are tired of it,” Sorbo added. “Christians as a whole, I find, are far more tolerant than the kinds of things you see on SNL and MSNBC bashing Christians and making comedic jokes about Jesus.”
Sorbo said Christians need to stand up for their beliefs and not cower under pressure. “The silent majority is starting to get annoyed with what’s going on” he said. “I think more people need to start speaking about it instead of just sitting there and taking it because we’ve turned into a bunch of wusses and it’s ridiculous. Its happening, you’re getting attacked, you need to stand up for yourself and your beliefs.”
