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.

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.
