Maybe we should chug on over to namby pamby land where we can find some self confidence for you, you jackwagon!
While I don't agree with her saying what she said because I do think it was ignorant (and I think you're referring to her saying she wouldn't want a Wiccan president), I can assure you, she is used to people dogging her belief system - she has to come to its defense an awful lot.Originally Posted by nliedel;2599234;
Yes, being in the entertainment industry, I am sure that Sherri is used to having her belief system "dogged." I admire her for being strong in her Christian faith.
I don't think they've forgotten the concept.. they just also believe in the fact that sharing views doesn't mean that they have to agree. I'd much rather watch a show where the hosts discuss and debate both sides of an argument/topic than present a happy feely single sided issue... or even both sides without contest.Originally Posted by bee stung lips;2598990;
For those that haven't seen the actual show, perhaps you can see the link here. Today it is TV moment #5. And the discussion went beyond simply abortion and into whether single parenthood could ever be "effective" parenting, for lack of a better term.. and that's where I think Whoopi (a single mother) had her gripe with Elisabeth. Whoopi didn't tell Elisabeth that she was too young to understand; she said that Elisabeth was too young to have such a strong opinion on the topic. Big difference.
And to take someone like Princess Diana and compare her compassion to someone like Elisabeth is insulting. Diana involved herself in the issues with which she became involved. She visited homeless shelters. She visited AIDS hospitals. She visited land mine areas and victims. She never sat at a podium of priviledge and attempted to spout knowledge of these activities. I certainly haven't heard Elisabeth back up any of her arguments with any real life firsthand experience and knowledge.
College doesn't give you the knowledge to be an expert on single parenthood. Playing college softball doesn't give you the knowledge to be an expert on what is and isn't bad parenting. If she actually deigned to get some real life experience she might get more respect from her cohosts and the majority of the viewing audience. Until then, she is definitely too young in experience to be able to take the firm black and white stances that she has taken on many issues without allowing for shades of grey.

So now Elisabeth is being faulted for growing up in a two parent home? And for being able to go to college? I do not think she grew up in a wealthy home, just an average middle class one.
I don't think Elisabeth playing softball gave her knowledge either. I also think that the softball she used is in sharp contrast to her hard head.
I would say that it gave her knowledge and experience in working as a team with all different types of people. And as a team captain, it provided her with the chance to develop her leadership skills.Originally Posted by skynet5000;2599447;
Were there all different kinds of people? This was a college team?Originally Posted by SavhLaney;2599451;
People from different areas of the country, people from different backgrounds.....Originally Posted by PWS;2599454;
I didn't know she was the captain and stuff. That change my mind. Her knowledge must be real good then.Originally Posted by SavhLaney;2599451;
