    A&E is free to have their views about gays and their views about how they do not agree with the hurtful and stupid comments made by Phil Robertson and they are free to act upon this because they too have the same freedom of speech rights as Robertson has. A&E for all purposes intended is a person under the constitution and thus have a constitutional right to free speech as well. And if you are of that opinion that the words of Robertson are totally unacceptable for you as a person/company, you have the right to not cooperate with such a person anymore.

    Also, Phil Robertson did not only make anti-gay comments but he also made moronic comments about blacks, the moron and chief of the Ducks stated:

    I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

    Sure, in the segregated period of the United States blacks were happy working the fields and singing. And the Blues according to the Duckster must have taken place after they were "entitled", when they were happy slaving away on the fields not having real civil rights.
    WOW, this is almost as sick as the illogical leap into bestiality.

    What does the bold read?

    So what was he talking about national stage or personal experience?

    You progressives are something else, really...

    Wanting equal rights is asking for tolerance, nothing more than a person speaking his views under the right of free speech. A person expressing his/her views also do not want to be insulted. Further a person that does speak his/her views do not want to be discriminated against by being fired, in the Duck case. Last a person speaking their views under the right of free speech surly does not want to be the victim of violent hate crimes.

    I'm not sure why the terms "hate crime" and "discriminated" are even being used here. But on the topic of "insulted" people need to realize at this point and time we are going through a shift n views concerning homosexuality and that actively trying to root out such opinions is going to be counter productive in the long run. Better to let them die their natural death and address them in the court of public opinion. That way they get exposed for the stupidity they are and you don't inadvertently validate the idea that such views are being actively suppressed

    Actually equal rights and tolerance are not the same thing and people really need to stop confusing the two

    And you know what, at this point and time it's a view shared by a very large segment of the population and isn't going to be addressed or changed by publically exiling every person that states it in public. You're much better off actually addressing such ideas as opposed to trying to drive them underground, especially when they are still largely acceptable among a significant amount of the population

    Sorry, but then why should anyone tolerate conservatives? They have no more rights to that than that gays have.

    Why would we tolerate people like Phil Robertson, he is free to his opinion and so am I. If Robertson does not want to be disrespected/insulted than he should not make publicly make his insulting comments, if you insult people you might get insults back.

    But the reaction of A&E is not disrespectful but they are just standing up for their employees and other people who happen to be gay.

    phil has outed himself as a bigot. loud and clear. whether by ignorance, or religious belief, or both
    He was asked a set up question by the interviewer about sin and he ticked off what the bible says is a sin. For that you label him a bigot. So, as you state here, if you do that, it makes you a bigot. I can only assume then that you think Christians are bigots.

    Oh, and btw, what is this crap about one believing the bible but not saying it outloud? I think that makes you the bigot.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    In the quest to destroy people by taking their words out of context, and by inserting intent that doesn't exist, activists are perhaps unknowningly proving their agenda is dangerous and reaches far beyond rights and recognition.

    I fear the slippery slope they entered long ago is getting too steep to support people.
