Whoopi Goldberg lashed out on Thursday at Louisiana’s new law mandating that all public school classrooms — from kindergarten to state-funded universities — display the Ten Commandments.

Goldberg made her comments on Thursday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” and she argued that if people wanted their children to see the Ten Commandments on the wall, they should “send them to a religious school.”


“You’re telling me you’re concerned about children learning things — one of the things that you don’t seem to understand is I have the same respect for my child that I have for yours,” Goldberg began. “I’m not asking you to believe what I believe. I’m not asking your kid to believe what I believe.”

“Public schools public school,” she insisted. “That means everybody can go to public school. I don’t understand why — if you want your child to have a religious education, send them to a religious school! There’s nothing stopping you.”

“Get out of my pocket, get out of my body, and get out of my school!” she shouted.


Goldberg also pointed out the fact that the United States is made up of many religions, asking whether classrooms would also display parts of the Quran or Buddhist teachings.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said that her main concern was that a similar law in Kentucky had already been struck down by the Supreme Court.

“We’re talking about nearly identical laws, and half a century ago they said it wasn’t okay. What he’s banking on is this reactive, partisan Supreme Court will overturn precedent and say, now, that this is okay. We should be very afraid of that,” Hostin warned.
