    The Obama doctrine is, repeat it enough times until they believe it.

    I think that is what is going on here.

    I have zero sympathy for the guy, he has shown with his comments that he's a hater.He has brought this on himself.

    Here's what got Phil Robertson in trouble:http://www.businessinsider.com/when-...ending-2013-12

    Robertson is out of touch with most American's attitudes about a number of things.
    Telling a grown man to "watch your mouth" will usually get yours slapped. They pray at the end of the show, they are from the south, they are rednecks. Just what did A&E think was going to happen?

    ?



    You need to ask them that question, but I'm going to guess that what has happened was not one of the things that they thought would happen.

    Now, that being said, I can understand why people feel gays are an affront to what is decent and healthy in our society. After all, an 800 lbs gorilla in the room is the Aids epidemic, which we all know was primarily spread--in the USA, at least--through gay sex. When religious people and others complain about the practices of gay men, arguing that such behaviors can take down our society/country/whatever, they should not be discounted out of hand; it's not like the risks there are negligible.

    However---and, this is where I draw the line in the sand--every human being has a right to happiness. And, in a free society, that includes having sex and marrying any consenting adult they fancy. If someone is attrated to same sex partners, and they find one--we should not interfere with their happiness.
    Does "the right" just start complaining about gays spontaneously or do they do it when provoked like in this case?

    ... so wrong.
    He was not talking about sexual sins. he was talking about sin in general.

    Please go back and read the quote, the complete quote.

    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)
    It is different because nobody knows who she is.

    I can pretty much guarantee that he did sign a contract that said if he said anything that might put A&E or their sponsors in a bad light they can be suspended or dropped.

    They (A&E) may have been giving the jackass more IQ credit than he deserved. Those other rednecks who hunt alligators and noodle catfish and stuff never badmouthed whole groups of viewers (well, yankees maybe, but they kinda like the abuse).

    Religious fundamentalism of any stripe doesn't garner much sympathy these days.
