So much for “inclusivity.”
Kevin Sorbo, best known in science fiction circles for his roles in the TV series “Andromeda” and “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” was banned from a comic convention for his ties to conservative commentator Sean Hannity.
Cliff Galbraith, the founder and lead promoter of East Coast Comicon, posted on Facebook Friday that he “turned down” Sorbo because the actor is friends with Hannity.
“I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” Galbraith wrote. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. Just can’t do it.”
The New Jersey-based comic convention has previously featured guests like Danny Trejo and the cast of the TV show “Lost in Space.” This year’s lineup includes former “Doctor Who” Sylvester McCoy and Paul Michael Glaser–known for playing Starsky in the ’70s series “Starsky & Hutch.”
Sorbo is a devout Christian who has starred in and directed faith-inspiring films.
In 2014, the “Hercules” actor blasted HBO’s Bill Maher for mocking the Christian film “God’s Not Dead,” which featured Sorbo in the lead role.
Last year, Sorbo directed and starred in the movie “Let There Be Light,” which was executive produced by Hannity.
“This is a movie that offers hope, it offers light – from the title – it offers redemption,” Sorbo said in an interview. “There’s something in this movie that will touch everybody, man woman and child – there’s something in there that will move them in some way or (they’ll) say ‘I can relate to that.’”
“Let There Be Light” tells the story of a prominent atheist who goes on a personal journey of faith after having a near-death experience.
In the 2016 election, Sorbo voted for Donald Trump and told “Fox & Friends” his faith would not allow him to support Hillary Clinton.
“You look at Hillary,” Sorbo said. “Does Jesus, does God support lying? Does He support killing? I’m not saying she’s a killer, but she let people die in Benghazi.”
Apparently, liberals have brought back the Hollywood blacklist–only now it’s exclusively used against Christians and conservatives.
Twitter users didn’t lose time in pointing out the hypocrisy of the “tolerance”-obsessed left.
Wow! Is Comicon going to get fined $150,000 for discrimination? Kind of like the Oregon bakers not baking a cake for religious beliefs?

Is denying someone access to a public event because if their political views the same as denying to make a cake for someone on religious grounds?

We have entered an age of Guilt by Association. Did we not learn anything from the age off McCarthyism? Obviously the Left/Liberals have not!
