Sherri Shepherd Says She’s Not Anti- Gay but Thinks Homosexuality Is a Sin

Sherri Shepherd is walking on thin ice by talking about religion and homosexuality.
The 46-year-old View cohost recently did an interview with Fusion host Alicia Menendez in which she opened up about her conservative Christian faith. When asked what she thinks is the public’s biggest misconception of her, Shepherd said, “I think people don’t know my heart. I think people feel I’m very judgmental. I think people feel I’m very homophobic. If they knew me, and knew my heart…If you come to me respectfully and ask me about my beliefs, I’ll talk to you about anything.”
Shepherd went on, “You grow up being a Christian and you have grown up believing homosexuality is a sin, you’re going to hell if you’re a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches, literally. So it’s something that I grew up believing. And being on the show has really forced me to go, ‘What are your beliefs, Sherri? What is God saying? It says one thing in the Bible and you have these people in your life and how does this apply to you, Sherri?'”
“I always tell people, ‘I may not agree with your lifestyle. I may not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you,'” she said. “You may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me.”
Shepherd continued of homosexuality, “Some people say it’s a choice. I don’t say it’s a choice. If you tell me, ‘Sherri, I was born gay.’ OK. I’m not gonna argue with you, because I can’t tell you how you feel and what’s going on inside. I’m trying to make it up to heaven by the skin of my teeth…So if you tell me you’re born [gay], I’m not gonna argue with you. And I absolutely respect you for that. I just ask that people respect how I feel, respect how you feel and we can have a great dialogue. And then afterwards, let’s go get a drink.”

The former Disney star is good friends with Justin and was forced to laugh off rumours they were dating after they were seen on a night out last year. She insisted they had just been working in the studio together and had been good friends for some time.
It seems she is such pals with the Canadian teenager that she wanted to help him get his love life back on track. Justin and Selena are understood to be dating again after a year apart, with Miley apparently the catalyst for the reunion.
“Miley had a long word with Selena at the Britney concert in Vegas [this month] telling her that she should give Justin another shot,” an insider told British magazine Heat.
There have been rumours that Selena was unhappy about Justin’s relationship with Miley. But it seems those were unfounded, with the punky singer simply using her sway with the heartthrob to make him realise what he was missing.
“She’s been pulling for them ever since they split,” the source explained.
Justin and Selena sparked speculation they were back together after Justin posted a picture of them together on Instagram. They were also seen riding segways around his neighbourhood in Calabasas, while confronting her feelings for her ex is said to be one of the reasons why Selena cancelled some of her tour dates this year.
‘Dealing with her breakup from Justin has still been affecting her and she’s been in a bit of a bad place recently,’ a source told RadarOnline previously.
‘Her family stepped in and basically advised her to either go to therapy or stay with them so they could watch over her. Her team agreed that family time would be best.’

The pop star posted a photo of 13-year-old Rocco Ritchie boxing on Instagram Friday night, infuriating users with the caption: ‘No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn***a.”
Followers took aim at the singer for using the racially-charged term. But Madonna swiftly fought back, deleting the original image and re-posting it with a defiant message.
‘Ok let me start this again. #get off of my d**k haters!’ she wrote.
Within minutes, thousands of users had liked the image. But commenters were not as kind.
‘Spreading ignorance is awful!’ one user wrote.
Addressing others rushing to her defence, another said he was shocked by the star’s lack of understanding despite having adopted two young African-American children.
‘There are haters. Then there are people offended. Like myself being of the same race as Ur African son. Ur account is public. I know Ur smart enough to know that word originated as offensive. I’m disappointed. I loved u. But I have a line. I’m done (sic),” the user wrote.
Another accused the 55-year-old star of grasping at straws in her old age.
‘Madonna – you are trying wayyyy too hard these days to be down with the younger crowd. give it up granny!’ the commenter wrote.
Madonna has yet to issue comment on the controversy.
