    re: 'Duck Dynasty': A&E warned Phil Robertson about speaking out too much [W:1111]

    I haven't gone to new threads yet - is anyone defending this woman's right to free speech as vigorously as the Duck Hunter?

    Ex-PR exec Justine Sacco apologizes for AIDS in Africa tweet - CNN.com

    Are Palin and Fox lining up behind her? is she getting a FB page?

    Her tweet was totally offensive but hey - freedom of speech!

    Or is it different if you aren't a white male christian?

    (My position - she can say it, but she isn't free from the consequences - ie getting fired)

    I'm simply amazed at seeing the far right backing a group of hippies.

    Bruce Bawer is an interesting case in point here. He is a gay man who spent much of his writing career attacking American Christians for their opposition to homosexuality. He was so offended by American Christians that he pulled up stakes and moved to Europe where he felt he an his partner would be better treated. It was then that he ran into the Islamist culture in Europe. It forced him to rethink his feelings about Americans and American Christianity. He wrote a book titled WHILE EUROPE SLEPT to document the growing Islamist movement in Europe that is as vocal as evangelical Christians, but is both violent and ignored because it comes from a liberal protected class: Muslims.

    In it he has the realization that Jerry Fallwell only objected to him and his partner marrying, the Islamists of Europe wanted to drop a wall on him.

    But they aren't hippies.

    They are millionaires who hate hippies.

    I agree they look like hippies.

    Why would I 'splain or defend barbarism?

    So, suggesting that people are hiding behind their Christian religion to disparage a class of people, like is done to the gays, you see it as "VERBALLY ATTACKING A CLASS OF PEOPLE"? Got it.

    Companies have all sorts of rules regarding employment. From appearance clauses, moral clauses etc. in the case of on air talent it is generally a standard clause regarding what they do or say in public
    His religious beliefs, Christianity, actually require him to proselytize.

    Is hiding behind religion the new excuse Christians now use to cover their gay bashing? What stops someone from using religion to bash Jews and Muslims or anyone else not accepting Christ...or is that OK, since its "practicing your religion"?
    Actually, talking about what he thinks is a sin is required by his religion. So in doing so, he's practicing his religion.
