Co-hostess on ABC’s The View, Sherri Shepherd was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and eventually left that body when her father was expelled for questioning some teachings of the elders.

With stand-up comedy and appearances on several turn of the millennium sitcoms, Shepherd has frequently been outspoken on the morning talkshow for her faith.
