    We're happier now with higher divorce rate, muder rate, unemployment rate, more welfare dependency? And according to the Libbos, black folks are still discriminated against as much as ever.

    I think you're just doing what you constantly accuse libbos of doing…. seeing racism everywhere.
    It's obviously a waste of time.

    I believe the outcry from the conservatives on this issue is oriented in a sudden public shift in opinion on the acceptance of homosexuality. And not just the lack of condemnation but the political movement towards SSM. I often hear about Gay activists pushing an agenda, which is probably true to some degree and this unsettles the traditionalists.

    I live in the south and hear my redneck acquaintances saying "it's too much Gay, too fast". I've often preached in the forums for the pro LGBT supporters to slow their roll or there will be a social divide and organized blowback. Especially with the PC control over speech. Let people have the time to adjust and freedom to vocally resist, so that a happy middle can be achieved.

    The Cracker Barrel has already gotten such a massive negative response that they put Phil's items back on the shelves.

    Hating or preaching against homosexuality is not going to make it go away. It's been around since before biblical times. And trying to force others to accept your orientation on every level is not a realistic goal. Honey catches more flies and killing with kindness eventually works.

    You are presuming that the firing of Bashir, Halperin, Baldwin, Olbermann, etc., were "wrong". I do not presume that. Those individuals used their freedom of speech to spout outrageous insults against other individuals and/or ideologies, and their employers had every right to sever their employment as a consequence. I see the Robertson issue the same way. He had every right to bash whomever he wished, and his employer had every right to issue consequences for him doing so.

    You seem to think receiving consequences for one's actions is wrong; I do not.

    They're pretty pragmatic folks. Their thinking is based on expensive market research that tells them to cut their losses with that jackass. It's not just that one show they're considering, I'm guessing.
    Like I said, viewers aren't customers, they're product. A&E obviously thinks that their production would suffer if they gave a voice to a homophobic fundamentalist Christian. Who can say they're obliged to give the fundy a microphone?

    It might surprise you, but I like duck. I've watched it for sometime now. I wished Phil (and I did know his name, their names)...had been a bit more prudent in his words. I've seen some controversial stuff come of YouTube for months.

    Oh well...it's his life.

    Merry Xmas to you and your's Mac...

    It just shows that you do not care about the truth.
    What's absurd is saying gay sex is a sin but eating rock lobster is wink-wink not a problem.

    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.
    Apdst, I've only seen a couple episodes of duck dynasty. Pls. let me know what of Shewolf's comments were inaccurate; from the two shows I saw, she described it accurately.

    Maybe I have. But my light simply is not the same as yours. My god doesn't care about gender if two consenting adults love each other. My god maybe cares though about people who hoard their riches and say nasty things about the meek.
