Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on today's episode [click here] of "The View":
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. Yesterday, the gals were at it again, this time joined by their new convert, Sherri Shepherd. So I wrote a news release, asking our list of energized Catholics to contact the executive producer, Bill Geddie.
Well, today their lid came off as one after another took to bashing me. Whoopi pleaded that she had made peace with God for her abortions. In all seriousness, I hope she was telling the truth.
Behar tried to convince the audience that somehow she might still be a Catholic. But it's a little too late in the game to start reclaiming her former status: for years she has bragged that 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 me to "Go to Hell" on the air. Such a sweet Christian girl.
Bashing me means nothing, so I hope they don't think their temper tantrum will shut me up. The only way they'll do that is if they start treating Catholics the way they do Muslims, African Americans, Jews, Latinos, Native Americans, homosexuals, transvestites, Pacific Islanders, dwarfs….
