Now that Rosie O'Donnell is joining the illustrious cast of The View, the increased star power will no doubt help Ford Motor Company raise the awareness of Warriors in Pink, which the automaker will promote in cooperation with the show. The fundraiser benefits the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, which has received over $87 million from Ford over the past 12 years, according to the automaker.

The View will direct viewers to www.fordcares.com, where they can purchase Warriors in Pink merchandise to benefit the charity. Also on the site are opportunities to share survivor stories, enter a sweepstakes, learn more about breast cancer initiatives, and contribute to the site's virtual quilt.

Bottom line? Almost everybody has known someone affected by breast cancer, whether it be a mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, daughter or friend -- you don't have to be a woman to support the cause. We certainly give the folks at Ford kudos for throwing the company's weight behind it.

      Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is a financial supporter of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country. Abortion has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Ford, the View, Planned Parenthood and Komen are strange bedfellows.

      The Ford partnership is with "The View" and not just Rosie. It's pretty crazy that this a good cause gets twisted into being wrong.

      The comments made by most bloggers so far have made me shake my head in wonder & frustration; haven't we as a nation learned ANYTHING about tolerance and non-stereotyping? I am not a supporter of Rosie's gay lifestyle; however, her love of life and of the children she has adopted have made me admire her anyway. Her recent comment on The View bashing Christians comes from her experience and pain; among those calling themselves Christians, unfortunately there are some "radicals" who do things like shoot gays and kill abortion doctors; if the real Christians could keep doing their job, even Rosie may be won over! If Ford thinks Rosie can help fight breast cancer, Bravo! My daughter died of the disease this year at age 34; ironically, I am a 25-year survivor; obviously we need more research (and more money to do it) to figure out what makes the difference.

      Right on Hondaman!!!

      Maybe that Fat Pig Rosie should come up with a ribbon to support a cure to save Ford?

      "3. That's another stupid move on Fords part. Rosie, just today, equated religious Christians as dangerous as the islamofascists."

      I think a little bit of perspective is in order. I think she might be referring to the "God hates Fags" type of Christians, which is not very Christian, they just use the term "Christian" in the name of their cause.

      Then you have the peaceful Christian that wants the best for IT'S members and anyone else is welcome to come join.

      If she was referring to "both" sets of "Christians" then yes, I could see where that comment is quite arrogant.

      If you re a christian ,hold off on your Ford purchase till there's some clarity from Ford on the position of their spokeswoman ,Rosie O Donnell.In the meantime,support a cure for breast cancer from interest that isn't working to kill unborn children and villify christians.

      "Are you sure you're not just bisexual because there's no way you could pay me to do a woman.. well, unless we're talking lottery cash ;-)"

      -Uhhhh, Women... Never have, never will. The thought gives me the chills too actually. BUT Women are great though.

      As for Jon, heck so long as he is happy (hopefully) and at peace with his life then good for him, that's what we are all looking for anyway. I know I am also, I just hope one day my partner and I can legally be together *somehow*, we have a California domestic partnership, but when we moved to Las Vegas that certificate is not worth the paper it is printed on.

      I was watching this show on Holland the other day and SIX years ago 85% of their population agreed with gay marriage, and the only logical thing I can think of is eventually moving out of the United States of America.

      I'm a dual citizen of the USA and Ireland right now, my partner kids and I have been looking into relocating our kids, business and basically life's into Canada, Vancouver BC (Such a pretty piece of this earth). Due to the fact that we cannot get married (or call it something different, just have the same rights) in the USA, we found out we are considered "refugees" from a foreign country that are denied civil rights.

      I love this country and would die for it in a heartbeat (USA) and the millions of people in it, but I think we could truly be at peace and happy somewhere else, plus I'm sure that would make others happy as well.

      Another brilliant move on the part of Ford...NOT. An alliance with Rosie is enough to make anyone with an iota of brains support another manufacturer.

      I think Ford made another wrong turn on their "Way Forward".

      Rosie takes it as a forgone conlusion that people in homosexuality can't change.She uses this to justify her own fascist rants on The View.This is christian bashing hate language.The silence here is deafening from the liberal controled media.Had she implied Jews were fascists she wouldn't have a job today,and rightly so.

      "As someone who's left the "Gay" lifestyle with the ministry and compassion of spirit filled christians I find her platform on "The View" chilling"

      PROVE IT. ex-gay is a fundie myth. They all keep showing back up at the gay bars. Are you sure you're not just bisexual because there's no way you could pay me to do a woman.. well, unless we're talking lottery cash ;-)

      Oh, and that icon does look rather, um, fallopian.

      I hope she makes more money for the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation than anybody dreamed possible.But her militant antichristian rants are more fascist and the villification of good american citizens are more akin to Hitlers call to rise up against the jews.As someone who's left the "Gay" lifestyle with the ministry and compassion of spirit filled christians I find her platform on "The View" chilling
