I don’t want to make this “Poke Fun at Christians Who Say Silly Things” day at MoJoBlog (see here), but I just can’t believe this went over the national airwaves.

“I don’t think anything predated Christians… Jesus came first.” Really, Sherri Shepherd? I ask this because you seem like a devout Christian woman: Have you read the Bible? Because there’s this part called the Old Testament. Much, dare I say all, of it predates the part with the Christians.

They should have to issue a correction on tomorrow’s show, just like a newspaper.
