    They're certainly trying to control what ideas can be promoted and without question regulate speech like the fascists they are.

    It really angers me...

    I'd never advocate muting them...

    The problem with progressives is that they cant logically justify their position - so there is no debate... They run on emotions not logic...

    If Duck man and others want to attack LGBT then they will be counter attacked as ignorant hillbilly uneducated inbred hicks. That is not hypocrisy that is self defense.

    I don't remember any "pro gay" folk going after Duck man prior to this... do you? Do you remember "pro gay" folk attacking conservatives for no good reason? No, they never do. They only attack in self defense. They only attack when provoked, discriminated against.

    This chasm of being intolerant of the intolerant nonsense is out of control.
    They attack us because we think that the family is the union of man and woman.

    The LGBT activist are now going after the ducks !

    If heterosexuality isn't a choice, why aren't straight men not allowed to talk like straight men ?

    How far is the loony left going to take this BS to ?

    So you are saying its ok to be intolerant to those who are intolerant against you? Which would then make it ok for them to "defend" themselves thus justifying their intolerances as well. Which then rejustifies your intolerances toward them. Which then rejustifies their intolerances toward you.

    Noticing a pattern here?

    As things currentl are, being gay is not a protected class in most places. I wouldn't like it as I personally think Phil shouldn't have been suspended either, but yes it would be legitimate.

    I may even try to do something about it, but that has no bearing on the legitimacy either.

    No one was attacked by one fellow loosely quoting a biblical scripture in a magazine article. However, since he gave the interview he has been attacked. Calling someone names is not defense.

    And of course you spent most of your post, again, attacking this fellow. Spewing hate and calling names when he did nothing more than express his biblically based personal feelings (that you disagree with) in a magazine article.

    Well, that is where our opinions on the term "Legitimate" in this context disagree.

    Legal and Legitimate aren't always the same.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Lots of millionaires are not famous.
    Lots of millionaires do not feel the need to pretend to be ignorant in an attempt to become famous.
    Lots of millionaires are not assholes.
    Their run of fame has peaked with the absurd merchandising promoted this Christmas season.
    A&E are well aware of this and when he started acting like an asshole outside of their editing control they didn't want to be associated with this loudmouth bigot anymore.
    A&E made a smart business decision and cut their losses.
    The big losers are the audience who believed this bigoted asshole is really a religious backward hillbilly.
    Within a year no one will remember who they are.

    Praying in public for all the world to see is just tacky showmanship, something Christ spoke out against, btw.

    Matthew 6:5 - Prayer -
    5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

    6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
