    Re: Duck Dynasty

    Phil Robertson has an absolute right to say whatever he wants and I would defend his right to do so. He does NOT, however, have the right to be free of the consequences that his speech brings.

    I beg to differ. Do that or any sexual act in public and that becomes a public matter, sometimes involving the police, charges, a prosecutor, and a judge.

    However, using "social pressure" in an attempt to ruin the speaker's life has a chilling effect that can go both ways. Shutting people up because you don't like their speech? Better hope you can maintain that pressure, because the argument can always swing the other way.

    I was referring to the sin, not the application of government "morality" laws.

    Re: Duck Dynasty

    How many Duck Dynasty threads do we need??
    With the faux outrage from Cruz and Palin, maybe we should give Duck his own forum, like we did Obamacare/ACA..
    Or his own sub-forum like we did Zimmerman

    It doesn't matter how he said it, this still would have happened.
