    Which is different. This was a behavior clause. I was trying to point you're comparing a maple with a tree frog.

    Only slaves weren't just black. But we do dismiss today much of what was in the bible today.

    I can say it was embarrassing and bigoted. So, while it was his experience, that's not what got him into trouble.

    Mac, if Phil knew what he was doing...he wouldn't have done it.

    I can see Phil's mind ticking away...
    "Let me see now...mmmmmmm...speak out about my religious principles, which A&E gave me cautions to not provoke other's beliefs or potentially lose $250,000 per episode. Which will I take?"

    I saw a few minutes of Duck Dynasty recently, and OMG… it was stupid. I don't get the show. They are just white, southern, rednecks. I guess we are supposed to laugh at how stupid and childless those guys are or something…

    I just know that they are blown out of proportion. I am tired of seeing Duck Dynasty chi pets, towels, t shirts, Christmas albums, etc.

    If this family makes the decision to quit, because one of them got suspended, then that is their decision.

    No, but I'm not a Libbo.

    Robertson is only a few years younger than my dad would be now. They are contemporaries and grew up less than a hundred miles apart; my dad would tell similar stories of back in the day.

    You didn't grow up in this neck of the woods, so who are you to say he's wrong?

    The guy is old. His beliefs on black people are outdated. I hope they are outdated. Most people my age don't complain about civil rights, and don't really mind much about gay marriage either.

    With that being said, people are acting like only A&E is overreacting. The family is also overreacting and so are their supporters. Nobody is telling them to quit or go away. Somebody got suspended, and people on both sides are acting like there are mobs out to get them..

    I find it somewhat humorous that Roberton said that black people "weren't singing the blues" in a region where black people literally invented the blues.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
