The Ladies of 'The View' Trash The Pope for Anti-Gay Statements: VIDEO


The ladies of The View eviscerated Pope Benedict yesterday for his statements attacking gays and defending 'the family', finding something they can all agree on — the Pope's views on marriage and moral hypocrisy both suck.

  4. Elizabeth Hasselback has been pro-gay marriage for well over a year now. I believe her views really evolved when Alec Mapa began appearing on The View and showing off pictures of his husband and son.

  5. Hearing them pontificate on things they know nothing about is also a joy.

  6. Well good for them. I know it's hard to publically condem a cabal of child f*ckers, but I'm glad they did.

  8. The Pope is delusionally out of touch with reality,, and I'm glad that people are recognizing this fact.

  9. What do some of you mean "they know nothing about?"

    They know the pope is a bigot. They know he makes exaggerated self promoting statements. They know he's anti-women's rights.

    What more do they need to know?

    Get over yourselves. The pope is nothing but a man with delusions of grandeur.

  10. For once the ladies of the View have all their heads in the right place. The Pope really needs to be called out on this BS.

  14. @MIKEW If you are using Chrome you can download a little add-on called Stealthy that lets you browse the web pretending you're in the US or any other country for that matter. It's through a proxy; the add-on merely lets you turn it on and off easily.

  19. Ihe pod people have taken over Elisabeth and replaced her with a rational clone? How long before the original escapes?

  20. Elisabeth progressive? Hell ANYBODY looks progressive when compared to the Pope.

  21. The Pope is creepy old man who wears a dress and hangs out in a palace designed by a homosexual.

  22. MikeW or anyone outside the US:

    If there is a link that is not available because you are in a different country, then just go to and choose a U.S. IP and then go wherever you want.

  23. i am guessing someone in Elizabeth's family or husband family came out of the closet, that's one of the few reasons right-wingers change their view on gay issues.

  24. Elizabeth Hasslebach hit the nail on the head when she said that the easy access of divorce threatens marriage. Gay marriage doesn't threaten marriage. I can hardly believe that i just agreed with Elizabeth. I need a vodka tonic.
