    I was not accusing Robertson of anything.

    I accused a user of being a fanatic who isnt that different from the taliban.

    OK, tell me where that user's beliefs come anywhere close to demanding the death penalty for being homosexual.

    Is it that you are being purposely obtuse or do you not actually understand the taliban law?

    The difference between that user and the taliban is as starkly in contrast as the difference between me debating you about your beliefs and me lynching you because of your beliefs.

    In other words, stop saying ignorant things.

    Everytime I cruise the cable and hit this DUCK show I think of the film IDIOCRACY. Why in the world would anyone spend even thirty seconds on this garbage?

    You brought the "deth penalty for homosexuals" into this.

    I accuse him of having the same mentality like the Taliban because just like them he uses his holy book to justify any of his actions and rejects all counters against him as "unchristian" and therefor not even worth listening.

    He combines politics and religion and therefor believes that he has the right to claim absolute truth in political debates and to dehumanise and potentialy criminalise all those who oppose him.

    So he is a fanatic and a fascist. Just like the Taliban.

    I don't hear Christians regularly condemn adultery or divorce, and yet, that happens with far more frequency than homosexuality. Why? Because adultery and divorce could happen to them, not someone else.

    In Christianity we can just "start over."
    Yes, and how convenient that is...

    Sorry, Christians just don't sin for the sake of it KNOWING that they can be redeemed...
    Yes, they do. Christians regularly work on Saturday and/or Sunday, regularly commit adultery, regularly divorce, regularly covet a man/woman not their spouse and that's just going down a few lines in the Ten Commandments.

    Many Christians regularly do things they know are wrong.

    If we used that logic the world would be a lot more ****ed up.....
    If we used the logic of "love thy neighbor as thyself", the world would be a lot better for everyone.

    Like I said, gays celebrate their sin, promote their sin, won't repent, and sin further by denigrating those who don't agree with them (like Phil Robertson). That's a fact.
    It's not a fact, and no amount of re-posting it will ever make it true.

    But those aren't knee-jerk reactions, those are laws put into place to uphold long standing prejudices.

    I can disagree with someone without believing my ideas should be law - it's just a simple disagreement.
    I'm glad for this, I wish more people understood this. I wish more people understood the idea of letting each person live their life in the manner they wish, as long as it has no affect on others.

    You either believe that a person has a right to their own beliefs or you dont. You either believe that a person should be mocked for their beliefs or you dont. But to act like its ok to mock one person for their beliefs and then be outraged when another persons beliefs are mocked is hypocritical.
    What are you on? You have a right to your opinion, I have an equal right to mock it.

    Arghhhh....I just had a really good post that disappeared....Ah well, the salient point boils down to this...

    It is clear who Duck Dynasty is and what they promote on their show. It was NO surprise that Phil would answer in the way he did when asked the question he was asked. Plus he really didn't say anything horribly offensive in my humble opinion.

    The groups you listed seem to be promoting a change in media back to some sort of less corruption aimed at our kids. You're against that?
