Kevin Sorbo: Saying Jews Killed Jesus Was As ‘A Joke, A Bad Taste Joke’
SORBO: I wasn’t trying to say that Jewish people had a hand in the death of Jesus because quite clearly many mourned his death at the time he was being crucified. There was no question about that. You know, I was going for a joke, a bad taste joke.
COLMES: You think that was a joke? That was a joke?
SORBO: It was just meant to say that they had a part, there was certainly a part of them that was saying, here is Jesus, here was this hardened criminal, and the Pharisees said….
COLMES: How is that a joke? I can understand you may misspoke, but a joke?
SORBO: Well, OK, you know, c’mon. I’ve taking enough beating on this. I’m hardly an anti-Semite.
I also asked Sorbo to explain why he conflated the NFL problems with Benghazi.
COLMES: You were talking about the NFL, and you said they can’t be expected to hold anybody accountable for mistakes handling domestic violence as long as the White House can’t be held responsible for terrorists attacks in Benghazi. I wasn’t quite sure what the connection was there, am I misstating what you said?
SORBO: Probably a little bit. I was probably going for another stupid joke again in there somewhere. Let’s face it, Benghazi is a pretty big scandal.
