As it stands now, this whole things has brought a ton of free publicity to the program and probably made the program more popular than ever. For those in the movie, show or TV business there is no such thing as bad publicity, it is when there is none that those folks start to worry.pop

    I hear A&E will be running a ton of reruns of Mr. Duck this week, this is just what they needed. More viewers because of all this publicity.
    Yep..watched about 6 episodes in a row last night with my MIL who had never seen it. She LHAO!

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.



    When and where did anyone on the left demand that anyone be 'drawn and quartered'?

    I don't believe that this actually happened.

    If you have some reliable proof of this you should post it.

    If not you should retract your statement.

    I agree with you (sorta), but why is the response always "where was the outrage"? Is one instance of a "wrong" any less a "wrong" because another "wrong" occurred?

    Yes, you are right. We all own the consequences of our words and deeds, including Phil.
    Nobody ever said that speaking the truth as we see it, and following God's word, would be without ridicule. Phil and his family know that, all Christians know that, or should.
    So yes, you are right, let people speak and let those who hear draw their own conclusion.
    After all, we can sit here all day going back and forth with explanations and interpretations of what he said, or we think he meant to say. But in the end, we see it the way we want to, we support only those with whom we agree.
    The lesson learned is for all. Grow a thicker hide, and yes, that includes any group of people, including minorities who are offended at any particular moment about anything that is being said, meant to be said, implied or hinted at.

    Quite possible.
    My religion requires me to violate a grapefruit in public. I should be allowed to do so without consequence, because freedom.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    actually claims to religous fredoms usually need to be validated historically and doctrinally, as to prevent people from making such random claims
