Phil was ask a question in an interview, he answered it honestly. Question should have never been ask anyway but he certainly had a right to answer it and do so honestly. If all gay people want is equal and fair treatment then welcome to fair and equal. You can say what you want and so can Phil. The problem is that gay people don't want fair and equal, they want special treatment. They want anyone that doesn't agree with their values and way of life to be punished for merely speaking their opinion. They want no one to have the right to say anything or do anything they don't agree with, at least not without punishment for doing so. Now that is not fair or equal treatment. That is saying that if you don't like what I do you can't say it because it might offend me. That is apparently ok, but if their lifestyle offends anyone else that is too bad and you just have to not only accept it but if ask.....agree with it no matter how you may feel.Jacques,
I don't watch TV, so I don't know anything about those back-woods mountain men on Duck Dynasty, but I did read what that grey old fart said, and I thought it was pretty crude too.
You know Jacques, if you give people a public platform and enough rope, they are sometimes liable to hang themselves.
Phil had the right to say what he did, A&E had the right to come out and say they don't agree with him, but the gay community demanded he be punished and so that is what they did. They went and punished Phil for merely speaking what he believes. How is that now wrong to do? Well apparently if the majority of American's who are not gay don't agree with the lifestyle they are no longer allowed their first amendment right to voice their opinion because it may offend the minority of gay people. But they claim to just want equal treatment and they want everyone else to be tolerate, tolerate or else is not exactly being tolerate of others. So they refuse to be tolerate of Phil's rights, but they demand that he be tolerate of theirs.
Phil was right, A&E was wrong and they will find out in a big way that trying to keep the few happy will piss off the many and they will be sorry they did that. Robertson's don't need A&E, they are find financially and otherwise without them......but A&E needs the Robertson's and the ratings and money they bring in.
