    If you were gay, why would you care what anybody says?

    Most gays don't watch the show nor did the know who he was, so why would they care what he said?

    I am Jewish. Do I care what anybody says about Jews?

    Does it affect my life in any way? No it doesn't.

    The question is who is she or why would anybody care what happened to her?

    As a Christian, you are called to preach to Gospel, to speak the truth, to tell it to those who are still lost, so that they too will have eternal life.
    So his dilemma is this. Should he speak for the lost, to the lost, preaching repentance and biblical truth, or should he just look the other way, like so many do, and let them go straight to hell?
    Which is more loving, more compassionate?
    A good comparison for those who don't believe is this.
    If you see a kid by the side of the road, ready to cross, and you know the kid will be run over, would you stop the kid and guide it to a crosswalk so that the little one will reach the other side, or would you just let the kid go?
    To reinforce what you said, this was also part of Robertsons interview that nobody on the left wants to agknowledge.

    "“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job,” Robertson told GQ. “We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus – whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later.”

    Can somebody please tell me how this could be seen as intolerance?

    What constitutes a preacher or a pastor?

    there are many videos on Youtube of this man preaching to groups of people.

    I never watched the Duck Dynasty program (I watch very little TV.).

    It will be interesting to see if Duck Dynasty survives the current kerfuffle and stays on TV.
    If they do not continue it will be their choice and not a decision from A&E.

    you can guarantee it you posted
    so, let's see it
    show us the contract ... the one you insist you can guarantee doesn't have any language allowing A&E to do what it did

    Just what did A&E think was going to happen?



    You can call those people rednecks if you want, but I lived and worked in Southeast Louisiana for a good bit of my life and I would call them goat ropers since they're from Northwest Louisiana.

    Sounds like a preacher to me.

    If you preach to groups of people, you're a preacher, eh?

    It wasn't what should happen to them....it was basically referring to gays in the same category as terrorists and bestiality. Just the typical right-wing garbage that usually refers to gays in the same sentence as child abusers as well. Nothing but typical right-wing bigotry.....

    Listing sins isn't necessarily equating them. Lying is a sin, for example, as is murder, but listing them together as sins does not mean they are equal sins. Not sure why that is so hard to grasp.

    More importantly. why couldn't AE just put out a disclaimer that this mans views do not represent their network and let it go at that? Not sure why the left is so intent upon adopting this fascist intolerance of any view not in line with their own. So the guy doesn't like homos and thinks what they do is sin. If that bothers you, don't watch the show. People should be allowed to be stupid and have every right to be racist or wrong headed in their views. Demanding that anyone who doesn't tow the political PC line be drawn and quartered is just fascist style intolerance.
