FAITH: Conservative Christian Actor Kevin Sorbo Banned From Comicon Convention Due To Political Leanings, Hannity Friendship

A conservative Christian actor has been banned from a Comicon convention due to his political leanings.

The Daily Caller reports that the founder and promoter of East Coast Comicon, Cliff Galbraith, announced that he will not be inviting actor Kevin Sorbo to the convention. Galbraith explained his reasoning for not inviting Sorbo:

I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon. Hes pals with Sean Hannity. I just cant do it.

Some who saw Galbraiths post and also have liberal leanings urged him to also ban other actors such as Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, James Wood, Jon Voight, and Chuck Norris who are known to have conservative viewpoints.

Others, however, decried Galbraiths decision. Sorbo himself previously acknowledged that there is a clear bias toward conservative Christians in Hollywood:

Theres a negativity towards Christians in Hollywood. And a negativity towards people who believe in God, he said in 2013.

Sorbo would have been a candidate for East Coast Comicon due to his role as Hercules in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and as the main character is the sci-fi series Andromeda.

Sorbo has also starred in faith films such as Soul Surfer and Gods Not Dead.
