Melissa Joan Hart recently told her 6-year-old son to be wary of people who don't believe in Jesus, especially Jews. The former "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star was speaking about her Christian-led life on a new episode of the podcast "Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris." In the episode she explains how when the moment came for her son to be switched from a Christian preschool to a traditional school she gave him a warning, "We don't know if these people are good people. We don't know if they believe in Jesus," she said, adding "and he really took the Jesus part to heart." Hart's son eventually became friends with a Jewish boy, which prompted the normal curiosities and questions any boy his age would likely have, which included him asking mom "If you're Jewish, how do you get to heaven?"
Hart has admitted to have had "heated" discussions with the aforementioned Jewish boy's mother, "some problems came out of that,“ she said, but did not want to go further to elaborate.
Because of this interview Hart is being accused of anti-semitic remarks, others have taken offense to Hart's suggestion that anyone who's not a Christian cannot be considered a good person. Hart, has previously said it's "scary" to be a Christian in Hollywood.
