    Freedom of speech and tolerance OK as long as it confirms your side's point of view.

    Got it...

    What's that called.... oh yes, hypocritical. You must be so proud.
    Umm, I don't like what Phil Robertson's says, however as far as I am concerned he can continue with his show. Frankly, I couldn't care less. Its the A&E (co owned by Hearst and Disney) who suspended him.

    In Phil's mind he 'probably' believed that if he could save one God-less baby Progressive from Hell and Damnation, the interview with GQ and the subsequent uproar would be worth it.

    IMO, what he said should be echoed repeatedly for that very reason.

    Imagine what that BaBa Wawa interview would have been like?

    A&E made a stupid decision. It's true that SSM activists are pretty aggressive, and they would have taken some heavy fire, but it's better than risking your main cash cow, and pissing off the demographic that you depend most upon.

    They better hope some of the folks from the History channel don't decide to bail.

    Maybe they did make a stupid decision or it might be a way to popularize the show more than it was. Frankly, I've never heard of the show until this controversy sprung up.

    Dude I just spent three years in Japan without television and I've heard of the show. Advertising they did not require.

    I had heard of it but I never watched it.


    I'm not into duck hunting-or eating, I prefer fried chicken.

    I am going to guess that this controversy won't help the show.

    Some people hear what they want to hear, and others hear what was actually said. The challenge as I see it, is trying to defend the former, while ignoring the later.

    Read his quote, it cannot be reasonably construed any other way. Most peopled don't follow up homosexuality with beastality.
