Sunny Hostin, co-host on "The View," insisted on Monday that children are much safer at LGBTQ-related functions than they are at church.

What are the details?

During a Monday segment, co-host Whoopi Goldberg addressed gay pride flags in New York City that were purportedly tampered with.

Rainbow flags were reportedly set on fire at a Harlem gay bar ahead of the June month celebrating the LGBTQ community.

Goldberg went on to brush off the flag vandalism, and promised those in the LGBTQ community that God "did not make mistakes," and encouraged those within the community to embrace their sexuality.

Hostin chimed in, and brought up Providence, Rhode Island's Bishop Thomas Tobin, who addressed the LGBTQ Pride Month events in a tweet.

"A reminder that Catholic should not support or attend LGBTQ 'Pride Month' events held in June," Tobin wrote. "They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals."

"They are especially harmful for children," his tweet added.

What did Hostin say?

Apparently perturbed by the bishop's tweet, Hostin fired back, insisting that children were safer at such gatherings than they were at church.

"I tweeted out my Catholic children will be attending Pride events as this Catholic will," she said. "My faith always taught me what would Jesus do? I know Jesus would be attending that Pride parade."

Hostin added, "I also know that God is love. Jesus is love. Love is love. For a Catholic bishop to come out and say something like that, given the history of pedophilia in the Catholic church, given what the Catholic church has hidden about the abuse of children, some would say that being at a Pride parade would be much safer for a child than it has been to be in a Catholic church for many years."
