    That's all very lovely but i'm not sure that i'd use facebook "likes" to claim any sort of high ground. The support page for Gay Rights also has over one million likes on facebook. So does "my sister said if i get one million fans she will name her baby megatron". 1.5 million likes.

    You know i really don't get peoples unhealthy obsession with the world of reality television. I had to google Duck Dynasty and Phil Robertson to see what all the fuss is about. Never seen/heard about it before, we don't get it here. He's just one man. It's ridiculous the amount of hoo ha that has arisen as a result of this one incident.

    White trash television exists to provide white trash the validation of their chosen lifestyle they so desperately crave.

    Since A&E is having a Duck Dynasty marathon and Phil's face is still prominently featured on the A&E website, it's looking like he was just put into the penalty box and the hope is the furor will die down in a few months. My guess is the GLBT Thought Police will be turning every stone to try to get more dirt on him so the network is forced to cancel the show.

    The network gets money off anything dealing with Duck Dynasty. The simple fact is this act, whether it's an A&E stunt or from the Duck Dynasty crew, Both sides are going to be making money hands over fist from BOTH sides of the homosexual issue.

    This is why I'm really laughing. The fact that no matter what side a person falls on, the low information person is going to be supporting one of the sides which in effect will be BOTH sides profiting.

    It's a good possibility that BOTH sides are playing the media.

    Can you demonstrate how this is true?




    All joking aside, you seem like a reasonably intelligent person, which is why it surprises me that you didn't anticipate my response to what you just wrote. Correlation does not prove causation.


    It doesn't always, but it can.. What correlation does in statistical terms, is provide us with a direction.



    I don't think I ever actually called you a bigot, though I did accuse you of walking a fine line. Having said that, I think the term is casually tossed around to the point that it's intended meaning is lost. Are you a bigot? Perhaps, but I really wouldn't pretend to know you. I'll concede that maybe your not.

    Golly gee thanks...



    LOL, yikes, I think I hit a nerve. Apparently you know me.... Yes you can find flaws in everything that doesn't meet with your approval. It's amazing that you believe that anything can be known at all.


    That's not fair.. I have been here long enough on DP that I have demonstrated that, when I have been wrong, I have acknowledged the point. I haven't had to do that much though..



    Touche...

    All things being equal does not mean that if they aren't equal that they are bad...

    Far as impolite, I guess you justify impoliteness on your perceived impoliteness in my previous post? Ok fair enough...But you took the low road...


    I took no road, I was not referring to you, I was referring to me.



    So seedy lifestyles define people as groups? Really? Wow. Your a piece of work.



    Yes, I think they do really. Although heterosexuals can be seedy, it's never cultural, like it is with homosexuals.





    "Knuckle dragging know-nothing"....lol...That was good.

    I have a flare for it.



    Having grown up in the presence of several LGBT people who were good people. They weren't seedy or perverted. They were just people. Because I don't consider information about the acceptance of people free choices in order to break cultural and religious stereotypes as "indoctrination, your right I don't concern myself with it. If you'd like to enlighten me, I will evaluate it and we can continue this discussion....


    No need, really. If you believe that homosexuality is not something that can influence another individual you'd be a ok... I prefer to think that it can and does, especially, and exclusively to prepubescent teens. Maybe even earlier..



    Again with this "nothing can be know crap"...Moving on.


    Huh? That's your interpretation, not mine. Things can be known, and we generally rely on convincing evidence to know that they are true.




    How's putting me "back over the line" work'in out for you?

    You tell me?



    Since when has anyone who held an idea based on religious dogma been able to evaluate an idea objectively?

    Umm.. What? Seriously?



    Having said that, I'll agree that their are "believers" on both sides. At the end of the day I'll err on the side of freedom, thx...

    I wrote this in haste....wanted to get you a reply...Didn't proof read, apologies if there are typo's...

    -Cheers.


    On the side of freedom.. I see!

    They bailed on their action quick, fast, and in a hurry. Too late for many. Damage is done.

    Even more ridiculous considering the people ridiculing Phil Robertson are the same ones that twice voted for a man who has openly declared homosexuality as immoral and his religious foundation as his basis for belief.

    I do hate to be a stickler, but there was no word for homosexuality back then... so I am not going to take the bible all that seriously.

    Cracker Barrel, effective today, has apologized to their patrons and restocked their shelves with Duck Dynasty merchandise. They have admitted they made a mistake.
