The View’s Sherri Shepherd: I’m Not A Judgmental Bigot Because I Believe Gays Are Going To Hell
“I think people don’t know my heart. I think people feel I’m very judgmental. 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 it’s something that I grew up believing.”
“I might not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you. You may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me … I don’t say it’s a choice. If you tell me, ‘Sherri, I was born gay.’ OK. 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 into heaven by the skin of my teeth … I don’t know who I’m gonna see. So if you tell me you’re born [gay], I’m not gonna argue with you. And I absolutely respect you for that. I just ask that people respect how I feel, [I] respect how you feel and we can have a great dialogue.” – The View co-host and actress Sherri Shepherd in a recent interview with Fusion host Alicia Menendez.
Sheperd asks that gay people respect how she feels. Isn’t that interesting? She asks that I respect that she feels that we going to hell, that we are less than deserving of what she believes she is, and then goes on to insist she isn’t judgmental. Sorry, but when you insist that someone is going to hell, that is the very definition of judgmental, and if you think of gay people as “sinners” and not as “humans” then that is the very definition of anti-gay.
Go sell your special brand of stupid somewhere else Shepherd. And I hope that Whoopi and Joy jump your fat divorced sinner ass over this.
