Google satire, then maybe you will get it. The 60's were a coming of age time period, when people were being slowly thrown into an awareness of how wrong it was to discriminate and have racist feeling towards other people. It had nothing to do w/ free speech. We were actually going forward at that time, now we are going backwards and that is a shame because racism and bigots are holding us back from progress. Have you ever heard of together we stand, divided we fall. Makes sense to me.

WHAT?! Stoning others is teaching love? You're right up there with those Duck Dynasty folks!
Hate is one of the most destructive emotions humans are capable of. Firstly the amount of emotional and physical energy we use when experiencing hate drains and absorbs the body. Also although it is a feeling forwarded at someone else we are the one experiencing it and it is a very nasty emotion that we are responsible for. We created it and own it so therefore we are choosing it. If we consider ourselves good people we know in our heart that we are being bad exhibiting this behavior which makes us suffer some guilt as we know it is bad. It really means that we have allowed some evil to reside inside of us. It creates confusion in our good souls and as a result exhausts our body physically from the anger that accompanies it.

Thinking one is a lawyer is a common delusion among courthouse janitors.

You just did answer her Bubba.

And I agree somewhat...she's pathetically humorous at best. How sad that her only means of responding to me is to co-opt my persona.

NEVER tuned in to the show so don't care what he said------don't ever watch such crap, rather read a good book, volunteer, or play board games with grandchildren. Where do people find the time or the INCLINATION to watch such garbage---wouldn't you rather fill your brain with something good and make happy memories? Live your OWN life WELL and you won't have to watch how others live theirs! That goes for the Kardashians too and all the "housewives of" as well as Biggest Loser!

Duck Dynasty' patriarch Phil Robertson says he 'will not give' after homosexuality comments

Published December 23, 2013

Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty" who ignited a national controversy this week with remarks in a magazine interview comparing homosexuality to bestiality, vowed he would not "give or back off" as he joined his family at church in West Monroe, La.

MailOnline reported Sunday that Robertson allowed one of its reporters into a Bible study class he led at the White's Ferry Road Church of Christ.

"I love all men and women" Robertson said, according to website. "I am a lover of humanity, not a hater." When a member of the class thanked Robertson for saying what he said in the interview, he appeared to shrug it off, saying "I didnít think much of it at all, but it seems a lot of other people did."

Robertson was suspended indefinitely by A&E after saying that "everything is blurred on whatís right and whatís wrong... Sin becomes fine ... 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."

In response to A&E's sanction, the Robertsons have reportedly considered pulling the plug on the popular program. Politicians, including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal have leapt to the family's defense, decrying what they see as an attack on free speech and Christian values.

During the class, which lasted approximately 45 minutes, Robertson said of the reaction to his comments, "I am just reading what was written over 2,000 years ago. Those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom. All I did was quote from the scriptures, but they just didnít know it. Whether I said it, or they read it, whatís the difference? The sins are the same, humans havenít changed.

"If you give them the bad news, theyíll start kicking and screaming. But you love them more than you fear them, so you tell them."

The rest of the flock, decked out in Duck Dynasty hats and bandannas, stood by the family and the sentiments Phil Robertson expressed.

Alan, Robertson's eldest son, helped deliver a Christmas-themed sermon. He started off by referring to last week's controversy.

"Hope your week went well," he dead-panned. "Ours was kinda' slow."

Phil Robertson concluded his Bible study class with a prayer that went, in part, "I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions."
