Rosie O'Donnell brought forth a nice round of applause from the live audience of The View when she proclaimed that "Radical Christianity is just as dangerous as Radical Islam!"
A few observations and questions here:
1. I'm guessing the network execs were thrilled. Insulting giant swaths of the potential viewing audience is always a great strategy. Is it just possible that the stay-at-home moms available to watch the show might be more likely a bit on the traditional side?
2. What does Rosie mean by "Radical Christianity"? I tend to think Mother Theresa. I mean, she was really sold out for the gospel and was really, really pro-life. Christians who would run around blowing up innocent people would qualify as bad Christians by virtually any standard. I don't know enough about Islam to say the same about Muslims.
3. Is Rosie aiming for a political show in the timeslot behind Keith Olbermann? How can a man be so right about sports and so terribly, terribly wrong about politics and culture?
