Sherri Shepherd Doesn't Agree with Your Sinful Gay 'Lifestyle' But She'll Join You for a Drink: VIDEO

Shepard

Earlier this week, View co-host Sherri Shepherd sat down with Fusion's Alicia Menendez to try to clear up some of the misconceptions people have about her.

Said Shepherd:

"I think people feel I'm very judgemental. I think people feel I'm very homophobic. If they knew me, and knew my heart... You grow up being a Christian and you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you're going to hell if you're a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches. So literally it is something that I grew up believing...I may not not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you. As you may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me ..."

She added:

"I don't say [being gay is] a choice. If you tell me, 'Sherri, I was born gay.' Okay. I'm not gonna argue with you, because I can't tell you how you feel and what's going on inside. I'm trying to make it up to heaven by the skin of my teeth ... So if you tell me you're born [gay], I'm not going to argue with you. And I absolutely respect you for that. I just ask that people respect how I feel, and [I] respect how you feel and we can have a great dialogue. And afterward, let's go get a drink."

The View Takes On Homophobic Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Cuccinelli: VIDEO

VIEW

Towleroad has already reported on Virginia State Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, and his extensive history of ignorant and homophobic remarks. Luckily, Cuccinelli's comments have not gone unnoticed by members of the media, and have received extensive criticism from news pundits and entertainers alike. 

This morning, the ladies of The View joined the growing list of media personalities criticizing Cuccinelli and his outdated rhetoric. After congratulating Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson on his recent marriage, co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly outlined the Virginia AG's goal to reinstate a "Crimes Against Nature Law," which would make such acts as oral and anal sex between consenting adults a felony. "Why are you in my bedroom? Get out!" shouted Goldberg, a long time supporter of LGBT rights. Barbara Walters added, "What he does is he automatically equates oral sex with homosexuality." "Well then I'm gayer than a gay 2 dollar bill..." added Sherri Shepherd, a co-host who hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with LGBT rights advocates. Joy Behar had perhaps the most amusing quip to offer: “he wants the government on my back and my husband off of it.”

Watch: The Ladies of 'The View' Discuss Boys and Pink Nail Polish

View

The ladies of The View discussed the J. Crew ad I posted yesterday which had FOX News and its flock up in arms. Sherri Shepherd agrees with the wingnuts angry at J. Crew that boys should not wear pink nail polish. At least she wouldn't allow her son to do so.

Glaad_theview

GLAAD, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Black AIDS Institute today published a full-page ad in Variety calling on The View and ABC to publicly correct disparaging misinformation from Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley on a June 22 episode (see third video) of The View blaming Black men for increased rates of HIV in Black women, despite evidence to the contrary from the CDC.

More than 3,000 people participated in GLAAD's original 'call-to-action' yet no action has been taken by the show's producers or its hosts.


News: LeBron James Sucks What?, Glenn Beck U, Calamari Calamity, GLAAD Unhappy With The View

Lebron-james

Road Gay (but celibate) nominee Rev. Jeffrey John is probably out of the running to become Bishop of Southwark in South London.

Road Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council is praising Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii for vetoing civil unions. BTW, he's on the record calling for homosexuality to be criminalized and for gays to be deported from the United States.

Road LeBron James branded a "cocksucker"—in a bad way—by Gawker.

Road The psychic octopus (no sentence should ever begin this way, but there it is) who successfully predicted the outcome of all the German World Cup matches has received death threats.

AndresrMUNTANE4VES4Road Jon Kortajarena, Andrés Velencoso and more of the world's top male models get naked (NSFW) for V Magazine.

Road What it's like to enroll in Glenn Beck's Beck University. First course: Faith 101.

Road The Outrate Online Short Film Festival 2010 is under way. (NSFW ads.)

Road Homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic, misogynist...now Mel Gibson can add "wifebeater" to his résumé. Allegedly.

6a00d8341cabbe53ef0133f2224721970b-400wiRoad The video for "Crossfire"—Brandon Flowers's first-ever solo single—premieres in the U.K. today.

Road GLAAD is after The View, specifically appealing to Barbara Walters over Sherri Shepherd and guest host D.L. Hughley's misinformed remarks that HIV is more prevalent in black women due to the number of gay and bisexual black men on the downlow.

Road Gay men seeking asylum in the U.K. should be "free to enjoy themselves going to Kylie concerts and drinking exotically coloured cocktails." Nice thought, but probably not the main reason they fear returning to their home countries.

Aaron_schockRoad The Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor gay-themed film I Love You, Phillip Morris was screened at The Budapest Gay Pride Festival on July 4. (Anyone see it?)

Road Republican Rep. Aaron Schock—who is absolutely not gay—is once again celebrated for his good looks. As a legislator, he makes a great fitness model.

Road The California governor race is all tied up. Which is good news and bad news for both Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman.

Road Gay activist Peter Rosenstein endorses D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray in the Washington, D.C., mayoral race. He'd previously worked as an advisor to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, but "it's another sign that many longtime local Democratic and civic activists are coalescing around Gray because of concerns about Fenty's personality and governing style."

Road A supplements supplement.

Gaga

Whoopi Goldberg is a big Lady GaGa fan, who showed up on The View yesterday. And apparently Sherri Shepherd has some fantasy of getting behind the camera.
