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This morning, the ladies of The View joined the growing list of media personalities criticizing Cuccinelli and his outdated rhetoric.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.”

Whoopi Goldberg Rips Michele Bachmann and the 'Marriage Vow': VIDEO

Whoopi

Whoopi Goldberg ripped Michele Bachmann this morning for signing "The Marriage Vow -- A Declaration of Dependence Upon Marriage and Family", a requirement for earning the Iowa conservative group The Family Leader's endorsement. The pledge also requires opposition to Sharia law and banning pornography.

The document also contained this statement, which was removed over outrage:

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."

Ranted Whoopi Goldberg on this morning's View: "Dammit, I am sick of this crap!"

Whoopi Goldberg says that people say stupid things when they're drunk, so folks should lighten up on John Galliano for his telling a woman "I love Hitler" and adding, "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed."

Watch: Rev. Joel Osteen Confronted on 'The View' About His Views That the Bible is Against Gays and Homosexuality is a Choice

Osteen

You may recall that last time Rev. Joel Osteen appeared on The View he said "homosexuality is not God's best." (clip HERE)

Yesterday, he attempted to clarify those remarks in another appearance (and I don't think he really clarified much: "I don't think it's God's best for your life. I don't think it's not in God's best making us.

He was also asked about megachurch pastor Jim Swilley, and was confronted by Whoopi and Joy Behar about his remarks that the Bible is against gays and homosexuality is a choice.

Unfortunately, Sherri changes the topic before they can really get into it. Can I have hands on who thinks Osteen is a closet case?
