Actress Patricia Heaton warned her fellow Christians to be prepared for an oncoming “onslaught” of ignorance and anti-religion rhetoric on social media in the coming weeks.
The “Everybody Loves Raymond” star took to Twitter to issue her ominous message to her more than 436,000 followers, alerting them of the “breathtaking ignorance” to come in the final weeks leading up to the November election and as Democrats and Republicans begin to debate filling the vacant seat of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Heaton has not been shy about her conservative views and has openly spoken out about her beliefs and Christian values. On Sunday, the 62-year-old actress warned her fans to “be prepared” as things are likely to get intense in the coming weeks.
“Friends, be prepared for social media to be filled with an onslaught of arrogant pronouncements based on breathtaking ignorance of religion in general, Christianity specifically and Catholicism in particularly by people who wouldn’t recognize God if He bit them on the bum,” she tweeted.
Heaton did not specify what her warning was in reference to but it came soon after far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore put out a call for “protests everywhere” and “a tsunami presence by us on social media today and this week” in response to the push by President Trump to name a nominee for the high court.
“Let the government shut down so that the Republicans can’t ram their right-wing judge through before Trump is defeated 6wks from this Tuesday,” Moore tweeted, telling his followers to “block, stall and grind all Senate business to a halt so this crackpot nominee doesn’t go through — you know, just like what the Republicans did to Obama for 8 long years. Extreme obstruction. Let’s let them now experience a taste of their own filthy medicine.”
