Melissa Joan Hart, star of God’s Not Dead 2, appeared on Good Morning America, Thursday to argue that tolerance extends to Christians, not just other faiths. Surprisingly, the co-hosts of GMA touted her new movie as “powerful” and a “serious role” for the actress.
The film revolves around a Christian teacher persecuted for mentioning Jesus in the classroom. Reporter Paula Faris wondered “why you think it’s an important topic in 2016. Hart responded, “We need to be tolerant of all religions. If a Christian's right is subordinate to all other rights, than it's not a right at all. And so, you know, I think it's really about tolerance across the board for everyone.”
Hart also added that she received criticism from some Christians for her previous role in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. However, “now it's from the other way” for starring in a religious film.
