"They don't want to say Jesus; they don't even want to mention His name. It's a shame! They need Jesus. I think Jesus needs to be more relevant to everyone in Hollywood," Sabato told CP in a recent interview.

He added, "Especially in this election time, if you talk about this president or being a conservative, you'll be blacklisted. I was completely blacklisted from Hollywood.

The "General Hospital" actor and longtime model explained that everything changed for him after he supported Donald Trump in Cleveland, Ohio, in during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"After I spoke for the president, I did mention Jesus in that speech, which I made sure to do, [although] there were people telling me not to. But I was like, 'No, that's never going to happen," Sabato explained.

He went on to say that there are "beautiful" Christian people in Hollywood who are a part of crews or who are drivers in the industry. But as for his observation, he believes Hollywood doesn't allow actors to speak openly about Jesus.

"There's people that I know that are afraid to talk about their religion and their relationship with God because they'll be blacklisted or they'll be fired on the spot. Those are dangerous times," Sabato continued. "I think we need to keep pushing for more Jesus, more positiveness. Christians are being persecuted worldwide, especially in the Middle East, and people don't want to talk about it."

"We finally have a president who's stepping up for Jerusalem, for the Jews, for the Christians, and we need more of that because otherwise, you won't have freedom of speech whatsoever on a movie set. That's very dangerous. It's already there right now and it's only getting worse."
