Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and the women of ABC's The View on Tuesday criticized Pope Benedict XVI's recent remarks on gay marriage.

Speaking on Monday to a gathering of diplomats from nearly 180 countries accredited to the Vatican, the pope warned that gay marriage threatens humanity.

He said that children need proper “settings” and that “pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman.”

“Ooh, somebody wasn't invited to Elton John's wedding,” joked The View co-host Joy Behar.

“I think about my marriage and gay marriage doesn't affect my marriage,” said Elisabeth Hasselbeck, considered the most conservative co-host on the panel. “You know what affects my marriage? Divorce.”

Sherri Shepherd called attention to the Catholic Church's child abuse scandals in her comments: “You've got a lot of people who are condemning things and they haven't cleaned house themselves, and they're doing the same things that they're condemning people for.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.
