I was going to post this on Club Members' Thoughts, but decided not to.

I found the above video playing in many places on the internet today.  I haven't seen The View in many years, but one of the hostesses believes that Christianity predates all other religions and "Jesus came first."   I'm speechless.

And they allow this woman to speak? I think if I were in charge I would fire her cause shes making the audience lose brain cells just by watching her. Well the banging my head on the desk is what really caused the loss but she drove me to it.

Not to say she cant say what she wants but if I were her boss on that show Id tell her to say it somewhere else without her paycheck.

This is a perfect example of why I NEVER watch daytime TV.

She is completely brain dead and it's amazing (in fact, it's an affront to every intelligent American) that she has a voice on a national medium.

That show is for women without a brain.

I watched it a couple times when Rosie was on because I was always interested in what children's charities she was working with, but I've never seen a show in it's entirety.

LOL. Hmm, she believed that Jesus came first and she's supposedly read the bible? Didn't she see there were JEWS in the bible?  So there's one already that she could have picked up on existing before Jesus.

Apparently the Bible she's using doesn't have an Old Testament, Shannon.

I think this lady has lost more than her old testament. :P

Thanks Rainey. I think it is hard to have a good "View" for a show when your head is in a hole.  I'd like to see some of the mail she gets after saying this on national TV.  Some people. I knew there was a reason (besides a full time job) I didn't watch that stupid show.

Let's face it....I am not religious, and I know that is wrong!  Anyone with a basic knowledge of history knows that is wrong.  Anyone with a 3rd grade education knows that is wrong!

Just don't anyone ask her which came first, the chicken or the egg......

It's kind of sad, isn't it?  You wonder what secluded little world she has been living in.

I have this perverse idea to compile a list of "Does Sherry know...?" questions to mail in to them to see how dumb she really is. Like:

Does Sherry know where babies come from?

Does Sherry know what homo sapien means?

Does Sherry know which is her right and which is her left?

I dunno why it amuses me so but I would love to have a list of this type of questions asked of her on air. But to be fair she cant study they have to be a surprise.

Have yall ever watched Leno's Jaywalking?  Face it folks, there are some really ignorant people out there.  Basic knowledge we take for granted is lost on many of these people.  Look at this video---a proclaimed college professor couldn't even tell Jay what year the USA gained its independence.  Sad. http://www.nbc.com/The_Tonight_Show_with_Jay_Leno/video/#mea=127576  All the questions pertain to the origins of Independence Day.

Chris, I love it!  And with the writers on strike, it's a definite possibility.

What color is the sky?

If you dig a big hole in your backyard, will you hit China?

How many pennies does it take to make a dollar?

How many fingers are on each hand?

What came first the chicken or the egg?  She seemed so certain that Jesus was first, so she'll probably know this one.
