Right before Christmas, the gals on “The View” took to criticizing the Catholic Church about abortion. Bill Donohue set sail a news release, asking our e-mail list to e-mail the show’s executive producer. And boy, did they. The next day, December 23, the panelists went ballistic.
Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck have been bashing the Catholic Church relentlessly over the past several years, all with the blessings of Barbara Walters, the show’s co-producer. This time they did it with help from Sherri Shepherd, their new convert.
Their lid came off as one after another took to bashing Donohue. Whoopi pleaded that she had made peace with God for her abortions (she has had at least six). To which Donohue said, “I hope she was telling the truth.”
Behar tried to convince the audience that somehow she might still be a Catholic; she likes to say she was “raised” Catholic, and we all know what that means. Shepherd was incoherent, and Hasselbeck, who switched to Protestantism, showed her true colors by telling Donohue to “Go to Hell” on the air. Such a sweet Christian girl.
We have news for these women: every time they start rapping the Church, we will push back. They are barking up the wrong tree if they think they can intimidate us. Indeed, it just gets our back up. 2011 should prove to be quite interesting.
