Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest...

Most people don't watch "The View."

It's safe to say that were all the women on that stage to exit the stage, the average on-stage IQ would rise by 75 points.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck replied to Walters by interjecting ...["] last year, the Vatican added seven new sins....They updated the seven. But they -- yes, genetic modification, human experimentation, pollution, social injustice"...

Wrong-o, Liz. That was the whole-cloth construction of a newspaper reporter...

Goldberg reacted in disbelief to the supposed list Hasselbeck had read: “Explain to me how you suddenly can write new sins. You can’t -- you’re not allowed to do that.” Lapsed Catholic Joy Behar had an explanation for her co-host: “But Whoopi, the Pope is supposed to be infallible, so he can say whatever he wants and people believe it. That’s how it goes.”

Her abysmal ignorance does not prevent her from talking.

The reality of 'infallibility'?

According to Catholic doctrine, the Pope is infallible only “when the Roman Pontiff speaks ex cathedra, that is, when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians... [as] he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church,

It gets even more humorous.

Walters asked, “What do you think is the biggest sin?” Behar answered, “Lust among priests -- that’s a big one,” in an apparent slam on the Catholic Church. Hasselbeck echoed Behar when she named pedophilia. Goldberg gave a more generically liberal answer: “Intolerance....because Jesus was not intolerant of anybody.”

That phrasing is deceptive, to say the least. Goldberg would have us believe that Christ tolerated sin because he spoke with 'publicans and tax-collectors,' and Mary Magdalene, the prostitute.

Nope. He was intolerant of sin--and on occasion, intolerant of sinners.

Goldberg must have forgotten the several places in the Bible where Jesus chastised the Pharisees, referring to them as a “brood of vipers” and “hypocrites."

Not that anyone actually expects anything from these ditzes...

I'm just fascinated by the fact that this show is still on the air. It is my understanding that many people watch this show specifically to disagree with these chickens but do they understand that viewership builds ratings? ... Keeping them on the air.

When I happen to see even the slightest bit of that show, I immediately begin to throw up. Literally.

Every time an episode of "The View" airs, a brain cell (or a million) die.

That's the only way people keep going back to this trough of drivel. Thank goodness I have a JOB and am not home to pollute my house with this junk.

I'm actually quite surprised that you even wrote about them on this blog?

Are they even worth the recognition?

Moving the analogy a bit further, Jesus was his most intolerant with folks who had been shown The Truth, had been taught The Truth and yet rejected it because it didn't fit their view of truth....sounds like a big piece of the left on a host of issues.
