Franklin Graham and Wells Fargo part ways over 2 mommies commerical


From Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:
Have you ever asked yourself–how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community? Every day it is something else! Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples. Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more. But it has dawned on me that we don’t have to do business with them. At the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, we are moving our accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank. And guess what—we don’t have to shop at Tiffany & Co., there are plenty of other jewelry stores. This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention. Share this if you agree.
What is Graham saying? He disagrees with the Wells Fargo bank’s stance on same sex relationships. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Franklin is a fundamentalist, strict construction Christian and it should come as no surprise that he would encourage his followers to follow his lead. This morning Whoopi Goldberg of The View took aim at Graham and she went as far as to question his Christianity. She has a right to her opinion just like Graham, but is it possible to disagree without the anger. It is possible to live in a world that respects everyone’s opinion not just the ones that agree with yours. Is this possible or does this thinking only exist in Utopia?

Is Monica Lewinsky headed to The View?

Monica Lewinsky has been sharing her story. She has done it in print, and she has done it in person. She has a right to share her story, but does that earn her seat at ABC The View? Well, Barbara Walters seems to think so and she is reportedly lobbying for it? The View is competing for viewers for the first time in the show’s life. CBS The Talk is giving them a run for their money and desperate times calls for desperate measures. Question: would you watch The View if Monica Lewinsky was added to the table?

The New View is a Real Snore

the new view
I watched The View on Monday and I was bored to death, but I gave it another chance and my conclusion is the New View is a bore. There is no chemistry between the hsts and you feel like you are guest at a dinner party. You want to leave but you believe it would be rude to leave before the entree, but you know you will not be there for the dessert. It is in a word–Bad. It will be interesting to see if it gets better, but someone will have to tell me because I will not be watching.

Whoopi has no one to talk to…too funny

Did Whoopi Goldberg attack Will Cain?


Was it an attack or a statement of fact? Share your thoughts.

Whoopi Goldberg says she is on The View to do her job no matter who else is at the table…is she right or wrong?

Whoopi Goldberg told US magazine that she doesn’t care who sits at the tablee with her as long as she gets paid. I cleaned up her real quote but the linked story contains her more colorful language. Some are shocked by her indefference, but the reality is the ladies are her co-workers. Would you cry if one of your co-workers took another position or if they were fired? The problem is talk shows rely on chemistry to attract ratings. They want the viewers to buy into the premise that the co-hosts are actually friends or in some case family like the Today Show. So when they decide the chemistry is not working the audience reacts negatively. Case in point the duming of Ann Curry. The Today show billed itself as a family so when it came time to change the public reacted by watching Good Morning America. it will be interesting to see if The View suffers a similar fate. Good luck Whoopi you seem like you could be comfortable if it became a one woman show.

Why is Jamie Foxx calling Spike Lee out?

Spike Lee has come out strongly against the movie Django Unchained. Jamie Foxx recently made the scathing remarks about Lee. Fox told The Guardian, “Where’s Spike Lee coming from?” “He didn’t like Whoopi Goldberg, he doesn’t like Tyler Perry, he doesn’t like anybody, I think he’s sort of run his course. I mean, I respect Spike, he’s a fantastic director. But he gets a little shady when he’s taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that’s irresponsible.” So what do you think is Lee expressing an honest opinion or is he just taking shots at a new generation of actors and directors?

Ann Coulter on The View…does she actually believe what she says?


Is Ann Coulter controversial for the sake of being controversial? You be the judge. Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Whoopi Goldberg is mad at Newt Gingrich, but she needs to get the facts straight

This is what Newt Gingrich said about poor children, “Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working, and have nobody around them who works. So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. … They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal.” Gingrich suggested that poor children could be “junior janitors.” He went on to say that these junior janitor positions would be reserved for children in really poor neighborhoods and public housing projects. He never said poor children should not go to school. He is suggesting that they work in their schools in positions that are currently performed by adults. This is bad anyway you look at it, but let’s be clear about what we are mad about. He has made some outrageous statements about child labor laws, but he has not said that poor children should not be educated.

Why is Sherri Shepherd offended by Barbara Walter’s use of the N-word, but not Whoopi Goldberg’s?


Today the hot topics got really hot on The View. While discussing the Rick Perry “Niggerhead Camp” Sherri Shepherd was offended when Barbara Walters said the word nigger, but she did not take offense when her co-host, Whoopi Goldberg said the same word. Walters said she was merely saying the word as part of the story she was not calling Shepherd a name, but Shepherd was still upset and she said she could not explain it to Walters. This is the problem with the word. It is either offensive or it is not. It can’t be fine for one group to say it and time to pull out protest signs when another groups says it. It is an ugly word and nobody should be saying it.
