The ladies on "The View" have slammed Glenn Beck's outrageous comments that the earthquake, and tsunami, in Japan could have been a message from God.
Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were critical of the comments made by Beck on his Monday show. He said that he thinks the earthquake might have been a "message" sent from God. He said "Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it."
Behar said "Which commandment does he want us to follow?...Thou shalt not build a reactor near the water?" She also pointed out that natural disasters have taken place since the formation of the planet.
Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck were more sympathetic. They said that people who are deeply religious sometime feel that God is sending them a message.
Shepard said "We look at things spiritually…I'm very hesitant to speak for God, to say he is punishing people, but we do look at things that happen, these disasters, and we look at, is Jesus coming?"
owever she did stress that she was not saying that God was punishing anyone.
Goldberg addressed Beck directly saying "If this is because we're misbehaving and God is pissed, I would check the mirror, Glenn."
Behar added "How about 'thou shalt not advance your career on the back of the Japanese people right now?'"
