Sherri Shepard, really ignorant or playing a part?

I had been struggling for a title for this post. First because I can't believe anyone so ignorant could be on television. Second because I can't believe Whoopi doesn't walk over and pop her little head off, she's not using it anyway. Third because where ever this dim wattage went to school needs to be closed. Fourth, I CAN'T BELIEVE ANYONE IS SO DOG DAMN IGNORANT OF EVEN THEIR OWN FAITH!

If she's playing a part. . . Sherri, please, please, stop!

First we had Sherri Shepherd tell us that she doesn't know if the world is round or not. (I aint even going say anything about the evolution talk)
(BTW nice try to change the subject with what is really a non sequitur (go look it up in the library, Sherri)

Now the woman reports that there was nothing before Jesus. What? (I'm having a Scobby Doo moment)

Sherri go open your Bible to Luke and re-read the Christmas story. (Tis the season afterall)

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:1-7 KJV

Okay you know that guy, Caesar Augustus, he was a Roman and he pre-dated Christians because Jesus hadn't even been born yet.

Now I know this may shock you but there is a book of the Bible that pre-dated the story of Jesus, it's called, the OLD Testament. Go read it sometime. It talks about Moses, who was the adopted son of a Pharaoh (that's the King in Egypt) - he was raised in a home that didn't believe in the God you believe in, they believed in many Gods. And when he heard the word of the God of the Hebrews (thems the people you know of as Jews - which PREDATED Jesus) he librated his people, the Hebrews, from his adopted family.

Oh if you look in your Bible, the first Chapter in Matthew there's all them names that you've probably ignored:
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; 4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; 5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; 11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Matthew 1:1-16 KJV
.Thems all Jews/Hebrews, a faith and people that PRE-DATE Jesus Christ.

Really you can't be that f-ing stupid. Especially when you frame so much on your faith and the Bible. I haven't even gone into ancient history which includes the Greeks, the Sumerians, the Harappans, the Aryans, etc. etc.

Maybe, before you embarrass yourself again, you or The View should register you in a university or community college Ancient History course (among others I'd suggest). Either that or follow Mark Twains advice:
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Do something great this holiday season, become an organ donor

I have been an organ donor since I was 18. At that time designating yourself an organ donor on your driver's license was only a few years old. I believed it in strongly then and I still do. It is even in my living will.

Now, some 27 years later, it is a friend of mine who has liver disease and needs a liver transplant. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. We don't always agree on everything he's far more to the right that I am politically, but we can have civil, respectful conversations and even listen to each others points of view.

There are no insults thrown, and no talking down to each other, it's political civil discourse, that would be nice to see. BTW he called Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity etc. "flame throwers" and he doesn’t like them. He also calls Michael Moore one too. Well, no one is perfect ;-)

I never got to hear him play in his band, But here he is at the Little Bear (a renowned Colorado night spot) in 1987. He's the one in the stripes.

Here is one of his visits to the hospital. He told me that he created the video the day after he got out of the hospital

He also has a compelling story about his friend Ardis, who had end stage liver disease. He took care of her and she passed away before he was diagnosed with the same illness. He may not last 5 years.

If you aren't an organ donor already, do something great this holiday season and become one!
