    Boo makes a lot up on the fly, then when called on it, he either tries to say that he didn't say what he said, or he plays stupid games of semantics to deflect that can last for literally pages.

    For instance, the part of the faux outrage, of Phil's comments, dealing with "pre/post entitlement" is pure bunk. Phil clearly starts his answer on that by restating the absurd trick question by the dishonest reporter Magary. Phil clearly says, "YOU SAY" so the rest can only be construed as a mocking overstatement. But, libs just want to conflate, smear, and attack anyone with Christian faith.

    See calamity and her response to me and others. She tried to pass off to me that she studies the bible, while addressing you she refers to it as "your book"... It is all so dishonest.

    I'm not telling a gay person to be straight. Your argument falls apart from there.




    If I was very determined in my belief that married, lifetime-monogamous heterosexual sex was good and not a sin then I would not ascribe to a religion that said otherwise. If I believed that the religion that said that married, lifetime-monogamous heterosexual sex was a sin was the righteous path set forth by God then I would battle my own personal desires in order to try and walk the righteous path.

    In other words, I'd be about the same but fighting different urges.



    You seriously doubt a great many things you are in fact wholly ignorant about, I find. I also really hope that is a typo and you really meant to type "their people" because that would be hilarious.
    I actually meant to write "these people".

    I get your point. If you want to be gay, you can't be "Christian". I'm cool with you all drawing a line with who can join your club. Btw, that's why I reject the American Christian Movement. IMO, you all are not Christ-like.

    He wasn't eight when he spoke in the interview. Many have lived long enough to know that their experiences are shadows at best of the larger world. Even at eight we can see the struggles of others. And certainly at his age he should know that such questions are more complex than can be answered in such an interview. Had he been wiser, less colored by bias, he'd have answered more cautiously, more reflective.

    But all we have is what he actually said today.

    Quite whining. Your inability to address what is actually said us your problem. Period.

    I was talking about you purposely not understanding what Phil Robertson said, but rather what you think he said.

    There seems to be a huge gap there, but you don't want to see it. That is your choice.
    Condemning the actions of consenting adults is petty, made even worse when invoking the name of God.

    Someone can be gay and be a Christian. You just conveniently ignore about 95% of what Christians actually say in order to fit them into your caricature. It's really a prerequisite as a Christian to be a sinner. If you don't believe you are a sinner then Christianity really has nothing for you.

    re: 'Duck Dynasty': A&E warned Phil Robertson about speaking out too much [W:1111]

    I've never seen the show, but here's my perspective.

    A&E are idiots. They've painted themselves in to a corner.

    Never even seen the show, but ONE look at that man and I can tell you he doesn't give a **** what anyone thinks of him. He's an old ass man, and he's gonna say what he wants to say. He's not apologizing for anything.

    I don't think he gives a damn if they ever do a show again, one way or the other.

    So A&E painted themselves in to a corner. Either they cancel the show and give up all that revenue, or they reinstate him with their tail between their legs, and now they've pissed off all the gays and libs.

    A&E.... amateur hour. LULZ.

    Somebody can also be a serial killer and be a Christian.

    Gays can be Christians. Wow. Cool.

    So, what's Phil whining about?

    Hey...Are Cristians cool with marrying off daughters at 15 and 16? Phil sure is.
    A good woman is “hard to find. Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry ‘em. Look, you wait till they get to be about 20 years old, they only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You gotta marry these girls when they’re 15 or 16, they’ll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course.” — Speaking at Sportsmen’s Ministry in Georgia in 2009.

    There are a couple more gems in that link up there which are even better. Glad too see you Christians hitching your wagon to such a righteous SOB. Suh-weet.

    I'm glad you're at least being honest about your opinion of "us Christians."
