ROSIE LOSES HER MIND
Catalyst October Issue 2006
Rosie O’Donnell is no stranger to Catholic bashing, so when it was announced that she was joining the ABC-TV program “The View,” we wondered how long it would take for her to start venting. The answer? Six shows.
On September 12, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck made the rather unexceptional observation that radical Islam is a threat. “Just a minute,” thundered Rosie, “radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.” Hasselbeck replied that “We are not bombing ourselves here in the country.” Even Joy Behar, who usually takes aim at Christians, was forced to say that no Christians were “threatening to kill us.”
But Rosie didn’t get it. Like a Mac Truck out of control, she then accused the U.S. of “bombing innocent people in other countries.” Of course, not only has the U.S. never intentionally killed an innocent person in Afghanistan or Iraq, it has gone out of its way not to hit civilians, as well as mosques. And in any event, none of this has anything to do with equating Americans who want to keep “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance with suicide bombers.
Looks like Rosie has lost her mind. She can’t distinguish between Christian activists who want a voice in the public square and Islamic fascists who want to blow it up. Look for her to get dumped from the show.
