Yes, liberal Jewish woman, shut your mouth, you're just another part of this "War on Christmas".

Leave the great white Christian patriarch Pence alone. And, of course, his holiness, the serial adulterer, porn star playboy, sexual assaulter, serial liar, and gun blesser in the White House.

No. She is not (even though the idiot on Fox and Friends apparently said she was). People just assume that because she sounds like she is from New York. Daughter of Italian Catholic parents. Though she was originally from Williamsburg...so maybe influenced?

Huh. My bad. Every Behar I met is a Sephardic Jew. Just checked Wiki, you are of course right.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behar_(surname)

Behar is a surname of Hebrew origin. Notable people with the surname include:

[snip]

Ruth Behar (born 1956), Cuban-American writer and anthropologist

[snip][end]

That Behar I've actually met, and she IS Jewish.

http://www.museojudiobejar.com/en/bejar-bejarano/

Thousands of people around the world carry the last names Bejar, Behar, Bejarano, Becerano and many more derivations of the of the name of this city. Time, geography and culture have transformed its sound and physical appearance. Many of those people are direct descendant of the Sephardim (the jews of Spain). Although they were forced to abandon their land, Sepharad, they chose to keep its familiar names, its language, and its customs. The sephardim love of Sepharad made them treasure its cultural legacy, and they carefully passed it on for 500 years.

Notable jewish personalities have carried the name of our city around the world. Such is the case of Haim Bejarano (1846-1931). He was a scholar, intellectual, and professor born in Bulgaria, where he directed the Sephardic School and became the Grand Rabbi of Turkey. Haim Bejarano was defended and disseminated Sephardic culture throughout Europe, and was in contact with notable Spanish intellectuals such as Unamuno and Menendez Pidal

We can also find notable Bejaranos nowadays; for example: the canadian singer Dan Bejar (1972), Abdellah Béhar (1963), moroccan born French Olympic athlete; American journalist Richard Behar; Cuban anthropologist Ruth Behar; Rumanian born French author Alberto Enrique Bejar (a.k.a Alexander Vona); Maxim Behar (1955), Bulgarian entrepreneur; and Howard Behar, founder and president of Starbucks Coffee, among many others.

[snip][end]

It could be the case that Joy's family are Catholic but might originally have been marranos.

It could be...but we have no reason to think so. Her family name was Occhiuto. Apparently Behar is the name of a former husband. (thanks Wikipedia). So no, I doubt it, but it a mistake easily made.

The name Behar itself may or may not be sephardic. In fact it may or may not be Jewish at all. In Hebrew, B'har means in/on the mountain (maybe better translated as from the mountain), or it may mean 'chosen.' (bachar, as in asher bachar banu -- a phrase you may recognize) But in Albanian it means summer, in Spanish Beharino means one from Behar (a city). I'm sure there are lots of other histories of the name.

Still, Fox and Friends are idiots. Its one thing for you to make that error or comment....they shouldn't...even if it had been true.

Hmmm. Well, twice she has married Jewish guys. I think it's finally come together for me. :D

https://interfaithfamily.com/arts_and_e ... the_globe/

On August 11, 2011, comedian and talk show host Joy Behar, 69, married her Jewish boyfriend of 29 years, Steve Janowitz, in a private ceremony in New York. No other details about the wedding, such as if a member of the clergy presided, were released. Janowitz is Behar’s second husband.

[snip]

Behar was born Josephine Occhuito in Brooklyn, New York. Her parents were Italian Catholic. Her father drove a Coca-Cola truck and her mother was a sewing machine operator. Raised Catholic, Behar now describes herself as an agonistic. (*)

Behar went to Queens College and there she met her first husband, Joseph Behar, a Sephardic Jew. They were married from 1965-1981 and had one child, a daughter, Eve, now 40. They remain friends, according to a 1992 New York Magazine interview. In February, 2011, their daughter had their first grandchild, a boy.

In the same 1992 New York Magazine interview, Behar described her attraction for Jewish men, her weddings to Joseph Behar and the jokes her Jewish former mother-in-law inspired:

I happen to have a thing for Jewish men. I like a tall, thin, Jewish guy with an astigmatism. I just can’t do these big Swedes from the Midwest, the typa guy that wants to go camping all the time. This typa guy is only happy if he can pee on a tree… [My wedding was] an Italo-Hebraic affair. First there was a ceremony in a Catholic church, Our Lady of Perpetual Agita. Then we go to Leonard’s of Great Neck [a catering hall] to go under the chuppa. My Italian relatives thought the cantor was entertainment….My [Jewish] mother-in-law taught mah-jongg as a second language. She kept a kosher home. One set of dishes for milk. One set of dishes for meat. One set of dishes for Chinese food.

[snip]

I have always been very amused by this joke that Behar used to do in her stand-up act:

Everyone thinks I’m Jewish. I’m not. Last year I got a call: “Happy Hanukkah.” I said, “Ma, I’m not Jewish.”

[snip][end]

Yeah, unfortunately, as our tradition's rules go, neither are her kids.

(*) I think they mean agnostic. :D Though it's possible she did get some agony from her weddings.

Anti-Christian? Because she said Jesus? If she had said God would that have been different? I am tired of these religionists. Their actions do not mesh with what they claim to believe nor do the mesh with the FACT that this is not a Christian Nation because there is no established religion. That grates on the religionists. They cannot accept that the founders established a nation and government that is secular even though that allowed religion to flourish in this country. The decline in organized religion in the last couple of decades can be traced, imo, directly to the religionists and their actions.

Those who seek to impose their interpretation of “holy scripture” onto the secular state.

Yeah...that's a tough one. In the United States there is not supposed to be any governmental establishment of religion. On the other hand, its hard to argue--religious/non-religious/anti-religious--that in the marketplace of ideas, people don't have the right to promote their values and encourage a nation which promotes them. Often difficult to find that "line."
