Sherri Shepherd: When ‘Keepin’ It Christian’ Goes Wrong

I usually don’t like to poke fun at Black people on this site–Lord knows there’s enough of that in the world already. But this is too much of a mess to pass up.

Comedian Sherri Shepherd, who, along with Whoopi Goldberg, recently joined the cast of ABC’s long running talkshow, The View. It’s an interesting dynamic, two black women on the show. Shepherd, a devout Christian (and presumably) conservative, and Whoopi, a die-hard NYC ACLU-type liberal. As much as Whoopi’s liberal politics sometimes gets on my nerves, I do think her presence has brought the intellectual rigor of the show up quite a bit.

The same, unfortunately, cannot be said for Sherri Shepherd. Yesterday, in a discussion about ancient civilization, Sherri Shepherd insisted that Jesus Christ predated the Greeks. Seriously. Have a look.

Just a few weeks before, Shepherd also said that she wasn’t sure that the world was round.
