Skip to comments.Whoopi Attempts Gotcha On Ann Romney, Wrongly Says Mormonism Forbids Military Service
Posted on 10/19/2012 8:16:42 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: As first lady, if you get the job, its going to entail a lot of things, and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know -- I believe that your religion doesnt allow you to go fight. ANN ROMNEY: No, that's not correct. We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in armed services.

Whoopi must’ve skipped American history classes. Haha

Is she wearing grilles on her teeth? Sure looks like a bit of ghetto bling to me.
That seems to be all the rage among these fantastically wealthy black celebs - look as though you just crawled out of the ‘hood. (Although if you read their bios, a lot of them were actually never in the ‘hood to begin with and are the children of middle or upper middle class families.)
In any case, dumb, dumb, dumb.
A few of my classmates at West Point were mormon. I remember them specifically, because they were allowed to take a year off (to go on their missionary work), which was highly unusual...making their West Point odyssey last 5 years instead of 4.
None of them ever talked about not being able to fight...and I think I even discussed ‘just war’ with one of them.
The esteemed religious and ethics scholar, Whoopi (Caryn Elaine Johnson), is wrong.
That’s what you get for getting your info from DUmmies and Daily KOmmunistS, Whoopie Cushion.
Candy:That’s right. I have it right here, Mormons forbid it.
That question was above Whoopi’s pay grade.
Mormonism...Amish...it’s all the same, right?
Mormons can serve in the military. I knew one who was a real jerk, but if he had been a Baptist he would still have been a jerk.
There is a National Military Cemetery not far from here. Near the grave of My Father-in-law, which has a cross on the stone, there is a grave with a sandblasted image of Moroni tooting his horn on that stone.
Well....she would certainly know what a bag is....
Yet since she became somewhat of a "celebrity", she has been endowed with additional knowledge and wisdom that can only come from such a position and peasants like us can't understand or comprehend!
/sarc (big time!)
Obviously above her mental grade also...
I don't know why Whoopie tried such a cheap shot, she's out of her league. She made a stupid statement, and she will be remembered for it.
with the exception of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the other four "ladies of the View" haven't got enough collective IQ to go toe-to-toe with Ann Romney.
That would explain the Mormons I've served with over the years...oh, wait...
She’s an idiot. My CO in Germany was a Morman. A major in the Security Police field. And he was a good commander, even though he didn’t raise hell like the rest of us. No drinking, smoking, or cussing for him, but a good CO nevertheless. He got up at 4 AM and ran 5 miles a day. Stayed in great shape. Caryn Elaine Johnson (her real name) makes me sick to my stomach ever time I hear her nasally, whining mouth.
Whoopi is full of Whoopi. She’s a legend in her own mind even if she’s stuck on stupid.
What a ditz!
Gee, Whoopie, shouldn't you wait until after the first lady debates before choosing sides?
Who’s the derelict looking guy on the left? I would have thought they have a lot better security even without the next President’s wife on the set.
Wow! Ann really shines in this photo! And the other look so drab and old.
show prep for Whoopieeee is a couple rocks of crack and a big fat medicinal joint.
So what’s the point is she camparing Romney not being in the military to “O”s stellar military record.....oh that’s right he never served either!!!/sarc
Class vs TRASH.
Ouch. The pic made my eyes bleed. That is one ugly dude. Sure it ain’t bob (the commie) marley brought back to life?
Rasta man....................... LOL!
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
If there was still a “Fairness Doctrine” (I don’t want it), The Obamas should be required to sit with Mark Levine and/or Sean Hannity for an open and unrehearsed GRILLING!
Hey Whoopi, can you demonstrate your total worship of Obama any more clearly?
Could she be thinking ‘Quakers’?
WHat does it mean to ‘server your mission?’
< sigh > I can never watch Star Trek: The Next Generation anymore without realizing who she is. Usually I can suspend reality enough to enjoy a show or movie but she is so pervasive with her leftist drivel, it’s nearly impossible to think of her as Guinan and not recall her real life idiocy.
I used to like her; she should have stayed “Guinan”. You’d think she may have learned something playing a character displaced from her home by a race of evil beings. Sometimes Whoppi, there is no reasoning with the Borg (Islamic terror).
I see that picture and think of that Sesame St song...
One of these ladies is not like the others...
Whoopi, living proof than you can pay certain people millions and they are still classless gutter trash.
Geez, Mormans are among the straightest and staunchest members of the military. I knew them as co-workers over 30 years ago
Whoopi’s hair must be braided too tight
Ann Romney might have said “You must be thinking of Quakers-as in the sect that runs the school where Obama sends his children”
I had a good Mormon friend who was also an AF Drill Instructor. He was a great guy and was definitely on my “don’t ever mess with” list.
How great would it have been if Ann had yelled “WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING MORMON?
I know I know....it’ll never happen.
I wonder how many future presidents will be added to that list of yours? It may well end with Bush.
Mormons are very heavily represented in the military intelligence field, due to a lot of them knowing foreign languages after their two years overseas missions. The RMs (returned missionaries) also tend to be very straight laced and pass the security clearance requirements handily. I worked with countless Mormons in that field. They’re probably 15-20% of the national intelligence workforce, and well organized within it. They’re even opening up an NSA satellite site out in Utah.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG—The offspring of a dog and an alligator.
Mormons....Mennonites.....what’s the difference, right Whoopi? They all look alike and are all bitter Bible clingers............../projectile sarc
Boy, is my former Brigade Commander and a host of other officers and NCOs I worked with over the course of 30 years going to be in hot water with the Temple elders! Sure glad erudite Whoopie is on top of the facts.../s
Mormons are less likely than most to serve, but they definitely do serve.
