    No wonder why you progs hate the Bill of Rights.
    What the hell are you talking about?

    You really need to stop it with this nauseating faux tyranny crusade. The Progressives are not out to get you or your free speech or any rights. They're not attacking you from every angle trying to oppress you. The guy popped his mouth off and got slapped down. This isn't some kind of crucifixion, get over yourself.

    Apparently the people who are mad at Phil for saying it. And the people who are mad at A&E for pulling him. Neither one really did anything wrong.

    This guy made his comments and has to live with the consequences. A&E will live with the consequences of suspending him.

    Well obviously A&E doesn't feel that way otherwise dude would have never been pulled.

    Also, you can bet A&E highly regrets their decision - the backlash directed at them must be difficult to deal with....

    A&E has every right to pull him off the air if he says something that the company disagrees with.

    As a Christian, I find no fault in what the Duck Dynasty star said. Biblical scripture does consider homosexuality a sin. But I suppose when an individual who is not of the cloth reaches celebraty status and quotes Scripture during an interview that is unreated to the movie or TV show he/she performs in that person had best bit his tongue so as not to offend rather than speak the truth.

    Free speech be damned. I mean, it's just business, right?
    Freedom of speech doesn't mean you are immune to consequences. This man's right to freedom of speech wasn't violated.

    Oh, so tolerant of them.
    It isn't just "the gays", its also everyone else that supports their right to live their lives how they see fit without discrimination and hate speech spewed at them. Just like "the blacks" we're not going to stop fighting until you right wingers are forced back into your caves with your garbage.

    Yeah right - what the hell you call political correctness then?

    If this wasn't the case then why the hell are progressives so bent and why the hell did they pull this guy from the show?

    Maybe you just cant see reality at face value..

    I had a progressive the other day in a different thread portray me as intolerant because I acknowledged that men and woman are different in physiology....

    Don't even try this "no one is out to get you" nonsense... These intolerant people are out to degrade and smash anyone who doesn't adhere to their group-think policies...

There are plenty of people in this country and in the media who can say they oppose homosexuality due to their religious beliefs without being disrespectful and disparaging about it. It is when you cross the line and start comparing things that don't cause harm, like homosexuality, to things that do cause harm, like theft and adultery, that you go from talking about how your oppose homosexuality on faith to attacking the character of people who are gay. That is why people opposed it.
    I don't have a persecution complex, as I'm not a christian. I'm an atheist.

    All I've stated is that for some reason discrimination laws are imbalanced, protecting homosexuals more than they protect the religious. If a company fired someone for saying something homosexual people would lose their minds.
