Kathie Lee Gifford Blasts Cancel Culture
While talking to The Christian Post, Gifford lamented the fact that today’s society lives by the mantra, “If you don’t believe in what I say and you don’t agree with my opinion, then I’m just going to cancel you as if you’ve never existed.”
“When have we ever lived in life [like] this, except for maybe during McCarthyism where we just called somebody as communist and wrote them off like they never existed? I don’t know it in my time on this planet,” Gifford continued, adding that the world needs “respectful dialogue” and the concept of “agreeing to disagree about things.”

“Coming from my own position of faith, I believe we were all created in the image of God,” she added. “And whether you look like me, or you look very, very different, we are still God’s children and created in His image.”
Kathie Lee Gifford Calls Cancel Culture ‘A Cancer’
Gifford, 68, later doubled down on her criticism of cancel culture in an interview with Fox News in which she described it as “a cancer.”
“It’s evil and it’s not something Jesus would ever do,” Gifford stated. “Jesus would never cancel someone. I certainly don’t want to be that person who cancels someone because they don’t look like me or believe in the same things that I do. We shouldn’t dismiss someone and treat them as if they have no value.”
“I believe this is a challenge for us to look at people who are different from us and understand them better,” she added. “I want people to take a good look at themselves each day and ask, ‘Lord, am I doing the right thing? Does this honor God?’ And if it does, do it.”
Gifford’s Thoughts On Modern Christian Church
Gifford also touched on her belief that the modern Christian church “has got to get back to the original stuff.”
“We place all the emphasis on the wrong stuff,” she said. “We’ve got to get back from trying to just build megachurches. It’s not about megachurches. It’s about mega souls. God doesn’t need money. He owns everything. He needs our hearts changed, redeemed and dedicated to His story of grace. That’s what changes the world one day at a time. It’s not the almighty dollar.”
