    But look on the bright side, Jet.

    This has provided quite the opportunity for ignorant hillbillies everywhere to flood internet discussion groups with the sort of stupid support that clearly indicates a few brain cells is all they possess.

    An ignorant hillbilly that started a million dollar business. hmmm somehow they don't seem to line up together. Out of all of them i don't think phil has a college education but the rest do. that still didn't stop him from creating a million dollar business that has since grown.

    yet you have enough brain cells to make ignorant comments like the one above interesting.

    See? There is that liberal tolerance again. The education credentials of those on the show will continue to be ignored by those who pretend to be superior while refusing to admit they are not. The nice thing about being the center of your own universe is you can always feel superior even in your parent's basement in your SpongeBob jammies.

    Phil has a Masters Degree in Education from Louisiana Tech, and was starting quarterback ahead of Terry Bradshaw in college. Turned down a chance at the NFL, by choice.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

Eventually people realize that you can't reason with the child and just leave them alone until they get over it.

A&E didn't want to give away the number 1 rated reality show. Them and cracker barrel took a huge financial hit over the whole ordeal.
    I think this was perfectly framed. Many people still think they can use religion to say stupid and/or hateful things and get away with it, but we're increasingly moving away from that. This very well demonstrated that you can no longer say "God says so" and get a free-pass after spouting your own ignorant views. These seemingly insignificant debacles have wider social implications. It reached people living in conservative bubbles and exposed them to the real world, and I have no doubt that this will help other anti-gay celebrities learn to keep their hateful traps shut.

    Except that the percentage of those who identify as Christians is much larger than those who identify as gay. So it really comes down to the size of your audience. In this case the gay community came across as whiny bitches. The majority in this country still believe in God ( be they Christians, Jews or Muslims, all the same God), and the morally bankrupt "progressives" tend to be more takers than producers. Eventually your boy in office will head back to wherever he came from and we will start to get back to a productive country that rewards results instead of feelings. Over the last few years we have tried to be accommodating, only to find that there is no satisfying the self important and irresponsible, and we are losing interest in caring about it. Obama and his policies are speeding us toward not being able to prop our less productive idiots up. When that happens there will be much crying and gnashing of teeth, but don't expect sympathy.

    No...Im sure that somewhere in there is your foolish intent to cull the works to find a word or two that justifies your position. Keep doing that...it is working so well for you. At the end of the day...if you dont believe it, then none of this should matter to you.

    Only those that despise themselves would see someone say "______________ is considered a sin by God" and see that as saying a 'hateful' thing. Perhaps the best place for you to start would be within...

    Now...I dont pretend to KNOW Gods processes or reasoning...I think thats presumptuous. However I DO believe we can look at his role as a loving father and see the commandments for what they are...not a condemnation but a defining path. But heres the sad thing...any parent knows that when they have children, sometimes their children will get it into their mind they want to do something, regardless the number of times you have told them 'no'. As a parent you can warn, threaten, plead, explain, cajole...and at the end of the day, the petulant child is going to do it anyway. The parent really at that point only has one viable choice...consequence. Allow the child to experience the consequence of their actions.That doesnt make you as a parent love any less. It doesnt mean you can remove consequence. It just means the child makes the choice and the parent hhas to remain consistent. Homosexuals are free to do whatever they want with the boundaries of the law. It doesnt mean there wont be consequence.

    Re: A&E calls off 'Duck Dynasty' suspension

    This went beyond reality television and hillbillies with beards. It boiled down to a speech issue. Because a person believe in the bible and in turn, homosexuality is a sin doesn't mean they cannot state such. A&E had every right to take action but that action had consequences which were unforeseen. Only the special interest groups were outraged - A&E folded on the issue because they are a business after all and killing a cash cow like DD is well... stupid. People have a right to their own opinion and expressing that opinion - like it or not. The moral of the story: Where business is concerned, political correctness from special interest groups do not trump free speech or running a profit media company.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
