Liberal media personality Whoopi Goldberg has come under fire for her false assertion that “the Christian right” has failed to condemn last weekend’s fatal car attack in Charlottesville that left one woman dead.
“The silence of the Christian Right about the Charlottesville Attack is deafening,” Goldberg boldly insisted via a tweet.

Apparently Goldberg has been following the wrong Christian leaders – if she’s even following any at all, that is.
Literally every christian leader I know denounced the racism & violence! Liar! Maybe she has no Christian leaders on her feed. Wonder why?🤔 https://t.co/FfGOZ6WbDV

Indeed, here’s a selection of just some of the statements issued by Christian leaders in response to this weekend’s attack.
I denounce bigotry & racism of every form. I pray our nation will come together. Our answers lie in turning to God. https://t.co/K28uWponfp

EVERY evangelical I know condemns white nationalism & white supremacism. The Christian church is the most diverse movement in the world.

In light of the evidence against her incendiary claim, Goldberg is currently being roasted.
Whoopi# what a shame every Christian who is a true Christian denounces what has happened. Who do you think you are!

You must be reading the wrong posts. I've read tons of tweets condemning white supremacy.

There are voices of Christians everywhere crying out in sadness and disgust over this. Every Christian is absolutely appalled.

Then u need to watch more news and religious programming! Everyone I've watched is condemning it. Silence sometimes comes from plugged ears

I don't know if I'd classify my church as "Christian right," but our pastor highlighted the Charlottesville situation in his message Sunday.

Oh, everybody condemns it. Shut up. I thought you were moving.

You must not follow anyone because they have been very vocal

You don't know what you're talking about! Get you facts straight before posting.

Christians are not Like that. Please don't generalize us. Many Christians are praying for the dead and injured.

The left refused to hear the Christians complaining about Obama's tyranny for the last 8 years, why would they listen to us now?

Whoopi Goldberg – interestingly enough – has yet to acknowledge the falsity of her statement.
Despite apparently feeling as though she is an expert on what Christians are up to, it seems Goldberg – best known in recent times for her gig co-hosting the pro-abortion show ‘The View’ – has missed a key part of Christianity: thou shall not bear false witness.
