Blab away, Babs. You don't need my permission to babble.
However, Duck Dynasty needs your approval to speak, or so it seems from your point of view.
Thanks for agreeing with me.

I encourage them to speak. The more they speak, the more they prove themselves idiots.

Better reread her post because that is not REMOTELY what she said.
What a closed mine you have. Or just poor reading comprehension.
My guess, probably the latter. Nice to "see" you Anne...

Here are the special conditions limiting Duck Dynasty speech, according to Babs:
"He didn't call for violence towards homosexuals, nor did he say they need to be expelled from this society or discriminated against."
Babs is clearly levying conditions for DD speech. In reality,.gov has implemented speech codes that people like Babs support, the so-called hate speech crime that protect special people such as homosexuals against hateful words.
Babs is using doublespeak here, claiming to support free speech but with certain conditions, and dummies like you regurgiate it as pablum.
If any group spoke out and encouraged violence toward any group of people, including Christians, gay, atheists, Mormons, etc., I would say THEN their rhetoric should be called into question and their intentions. I'm not saying they should even be prosecuted for saying these things because they are not doing anything necessarily illegal. But anyone who incites violence should be checked. We do not have free speech per se. We have the freedom to say what we want without fear of persecution from the government. But that does not mean a person doesn't have some responsibility for their words. In this specific case, DD man regurgitated what he believes due to his religion. He's free to do so. He's not using his show to further advocate any of his beliefs. Therefore, she should have never been suspended. As he has been welcomed back to the show, I see this all as a moot point.

I probably wouldn't agree with you on much, but you are right about this. He was asked a question. So now we are supposed to lie if the answer isn't what you want to hear? It's not like he just stood up and announced this. He was asked a question. The are a lot of things people don't like about others. They are very critical towards Catholics, but that's okay. What about fat people? They are ridiculed probably the most. And Jews? Religious people in general and many others. That's acceptable. Nobody cares about that. But don't you dare be honest on how you feel about gays. Especially in Hollywood.
Some of what he said was omitted for the purpose of selling a story. He did say he loved all men equally and that it is up to god to deal with the sinners. The whole purpose of the interview, I would surmise, was to get tags wagging and get people stirred up, which is exactly what it did. But the man did nothing wrong. If I were asked a question during an interview, I would answer honestly, not what I think advertisers want me to say. We are all entitled to our opinions.
