Former SNL Star Joe Piscopo: Time for Conservatives, Christians to Come Out of the Closet
It’s time for conservatives and Christians to come out of the closet, talk show host Joe Piscopo, who was a popular Saturday Night Live cast member in the early 1980s, recently said.
Piscopo told 700 Club’s Pat Robertson that he felt a responsibility to host a conservative and faith-based radio talk show in New York (AM 970 The Answer) when he was offered the job six years ago because he saw “this country slipping away a little bit.”
Piscopo, who was on SNL for four seasons, was perhaps best known for his impersonation of Frank Sinatra, reported CBN News.
“It’s time for those of us who have been in ‘the closet’ conservatively or faith-wise, it’s time to come out because we need it now more than ever,” he said during his interview with Robertson. “It’s OK to say ‘we are one nation under God,’ it’s OK to say ‘in God we trust,’ it’s OK to say ‘God bless America.’ That’s what’s missing. We are afraid to say it.”
