One, a persons religious beliefs, that something is a sin, is not moronic. You couldn't even show that it is. So yes, your saying so is bigoted.
Two, a person's own experience is an experience that you in no way can say is moronic. It is what he experienced. So yes, your saying so is bigoted.
Saying something is a sin is not an intolerable view.
It is a belief supposedly handed down by G_d. A belief that you can not prove to be untrue.
We will see if they rethink their position.
And either way, that is what bigots say.

I read through that article three times and didn't see anything that wasn't established religious positions. Other than that he just stated a personal preference.
In this case it's the GLAAD group that are being intolerant of religious beliefs.
only to you and those like you, such as the westboro baptist church, which has announced its intent to picket A&E in support of phil robertson, would offer up such an outlandish proposition that slavery is acceptable because the bible says so
I rarely go shopping besides tools, bicycle stores and sporting goods stores, but this time of year I do go Christmas shopping. One of the things I noticed was all the Duck Dynasty stuff everywhere. I bet this whole thing is advertising just like Chik-FilA thing was. I bet the dynasty sells a lot more stuff because of it.

But look at aids, what are the biggest risk groups ?? According to the CDC it's in order : white MSM (man who has sex with men), black MSM, then Hispanic MSM.
As for slavery, guess what everyone was owning slaves, and it didn't matter on the race of the slave... and even in America, the white slaves were worse off than the black slaves. You see the black slaves were property that could be traded or sold. The white slaves on the other hand were more like prisoners who only had costs so, if it came to a choice they would only "maintain" black slaves.
This isn't saying slavery was good, but there are realities of slavery that are neglected from an American perspective... that in spite of how terrible "white people" were to black, it was ultimately white people that put an end to most of the slavery in the world.
However, he didn't say anything outright ignorant, nor does it seem as it's from a position of hatred. He really just stated an opinion.
So, in this case it's really just the LGBT community that's being intolerant and overly sensitive.
he believes that homosexuals should have less rights than heterosexuals. how is that NOT an ignorant statement
it is phil robertson who is putting his intolerance on display, NOT the LGBT community ... all they want is to be treated with equality
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
