Christian actor and filmmaker Kevin Sorbo topped headlines last week after Cliff Galbraith announced that he had "banned" Sorbo from Comicon. In an interview with LifeZette, Sorbo said he found the entire situation amusing, especially since he never had any intentions to attend the popular comic book convention in the first place.
Galbraith, a veteran comic book artist and Comicon promoter bragged in a Facebook post last week that Sorbo, who is known for his lead roles in "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Andromeda", was "turned down" for the East Coast convention in April due to his ties with conservative pundit Sean Hannity.

In his LifeZette interview, however, Sorbo set the record straight: "I thought this [the Facebook post] was pretty funny. I laughed."
"To me, it's like, what a smart move. I was never even invited [the convention]. My agent never went there," Sorbo explained. "I went online and it's a very small con [event], so he [Galbraith] was trying to drum up interest in his con and himself. I appreciate it and I applaud his entrepreneurial spirit, especially for a guy who is a socialist."
While he said that being discriminated against for his political beliefs is "a first", Sorbo said he was not surprised to see a "liberal person" judge him based on his conservative stance.
"The Left is so angry about the election still, over a year later," Sorbo concluded.
