    'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E (W: 742)

    "Duck Dynasty" dad Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely by the A&E Network following his recent comments on homosexuality, the network announced Wednesday night."We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty'," the network said in a statement.
    "His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."

    When did having an opposing view become intolerant? Seriously, this idea on the right that tolerance = silence is puzzling.

    I don't necessarily agree with A&E's actions here, but your definition of the word "intolerant" is wrong.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Not at all....GLAAD, and the rest of them threatened A&E with advertiser targeting, boycotts, picketing etc...They were quite thuggish as the left often is, and forced A&E's decision...Now, do I think A&E were weak ass punks for giving in? Hell yes! But don't try and make it sound like it was just some opinion expressed by these groups without any threats....

    And christian groups have threatened companies with boycotts and picketed companies. Do you find them "thuggish" too?
    That is part of the freedom of speech thing. You can speak, I can speak, many can get together to speak with their wallets.

    I find that practice totalitarian and thuggish period, yes. But I don't think you can provide specific recent examples of this. And even if you can, does one sides bad behavior justify your own?

    I would call getting someone fired from their job....intolerance.
