    To your mind perhaps, to many others it was an all are sin of equal weight.

    On that one show, but last I looked A&E does 24 hour programming. So one show on one airing is a trend? Now realistically the show is over on A&E, some other network will gladly take it over, maybe the CBN bunch. I'd say the folks at A&E did what they felt was proper, the Duckers will do what they need to do, capitalism shouldn't be so worshiped that folks who don't want to associate have to. Let them part ways, both will continue on. Who knows what mindless dribble will replace this mindless dribble.... never underestimate the viewers acceptance of pap.

    I know you were just kidding but ill say it for you. Religion exposes people to a fantasy world. A world of fictitious stories made to warm ones heart, give the weak minded hope and strength to plod through life's challenges and a promise for the people that do bad things that its ok, they're washed in the blood of Jesus. And hope of a life of eternity floating around on a cloud singing praises to Jesus for ever and ever and ever.

    Wtf?
    And?
    That is true.
    They are all sins.
    At least we know one is an abomination. The others?

    But he did not compare gays to perpetrators of bestiality.
    To say so is a false statement.

    Which is an indication of the backlash that you are obviously and willfully ignoring.

    No it wasn't. THe 17% spike in ratings that Duck Dynasty brought them carried them from bottom dweller to ranked #7. Without Disk Dynasty they will sink into obscurity again. But it's a nice touch to preface your assuring prediction of A&Es future with the admission you haven't the slightest clue about A&E and its programming.

    Here is the statement many think compares Homosexuality to bestiality- "Start with Homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men"

    First by the looks of his grammar I'd say your attempt to use grammatical rules is a non-starter as he damn sure doesn't follow those rules!

    Next those who see the comparison see it clearly and those who don't are just as sure.

    As far as backlash goes, one airing does not a trend make, you are trying to declare victory after the opening salvo. Due to the clannish nature of the cast I can see the show folding it's tent and leaving. That is one of the ahhh 'features' of this sort of show.

    But I'll bet you that tophat in a month some other drivel will fill the slot and who knows how many people will tune in...

    For that matter I'd salute A&E if they work harder creating shows like Longmire and leave 'reality' TV to others....

    The one thing that did make me shake my head was his opinion blacks were happy before they could eat in the same lunch room, school, church, vote, marry a white girl... just amazing.

    Not that liberals can't be intolerant, but what is it you think "libbos" are being intolerant of?
