Since July 2, several journalists and a number of anonymous people have been posting scathing criticism on social networks of the remarks that journalist Christine Kelly made during her intervention on March 27 at the MLK Church of Creteil. The video of this meeting-testimony with the leaders of the Pentecostal congregation was published on Twitter on July 2, in the form of an assembly. A certain Joao Gabriel, who presents himself as an academic, accompanied him with a first political comment: “Christine Kelly, her program with Zemmour (Face à l’Info) as an expression of God’s will and an opportunity to share her faith . This great moment of normalization of the extreme right financed by Bolloré is therefore presented here as a blessing on a spiritual level.
“Shows with Eric Zemmour with the support of God”
The explanations of the journalist CNews as to his habit of praying before broadcasts are particularly mocked. Critics also focus on the fact that she prayed before her first show Face à l’Info, which she hosted with Eric Zemmour from October 2019 to September 2021. “If we follow the reasoning of Christine Kelly, to build the solid friendship that exists between Eric Zemmour and Eric Naulleau, it is therefore “God who took the reins”. Surprising, isn’t it? “Launches a user, who is eccentric by referring a priori to the old program “Zemmour and Naulleau”, broadcast on Paris Premiere.
“It’s getting better and better: Christine Kelly is kind of a televangelist. She did, she says, shows with Eric Zemmour with God’s support. Things are not going well with the very holy Bolloré, ”comments another. The journalist did not react to these attacks.
During the meeting at l’Eglise Martin Luther King at the end of March, Christine Kelly had indeed returned to the decried first interventions of Eric Zemmour in the program, recalling that several personalities had called for a boycott of the show. “I prayed every day,” she testified, “and I said to God: I don’t know why you are sending me there. But if you send me, here I am”.
