There are 66 comments on the Free Republic story from Dec 29, 2013, titled Duck Dynasty: Freedom of speech vs. intolerance. In it, Free Republic reports that:

To an intelligent, open-minded person who sincerely believes in pluralism, the entire Phil Robertson, Duck Dynasty incident should have nothing at all to do with where one stands on gay issues or what one thinks of the man's opinions, but whether we believe in freedom of speech or prefer intolerance and censorship.

The sad part -- Those people who are against homosexuality who claim "Sex is for procreation" - seem to have overlooked the simple fact there's 8 BILLION people on this planet...... The ancient texts says "Go forth and multiply" - not "Go forth and spread like a viral infestation".....

We've gotten past the global centric, and heliocentric and flat earth doctrines -- we've gotten past slavery, women as property and children as little more than an insurance policy - all of which the major religions not only endorsed - but violently enforced.

Maybe, just maybe we'll get past where people stick their weenie on Saturday night.

But probably not anytime soon.

I have an argument. You don't. That's why it's so obvious you're a bigot.

Slave owners had nothing to do with homosexuality. Two different things.
You know you don't have a stand alone argument so you want to incorporate racial issues. You can't do that successfully.

Why is it that the people most likely to defend this bigot are the same ones who whine about Topix deleting their posts for violating the terms of service?

I wasn't incorporating racial issues. I was comparing anti-gay bigotry to racial bigotry. Sorry your reading comprehension is poor.

Everyone has an opinion just like everyone has a butthole. It's each ones own option as to what to do with it...both the opinion and the butthole. Personally, I stand with Phil, I do not ask that others do the same, I only ask that you do what you feel is your right to do, whether my opinion is that you are correct or that you are incorrect is my opinion and no one can take that from me.
