    Phil Robertson out of the closet??!?

    I heard today that this famous duck hunter (?) has broken down and 'fessed up to a long suppressed love for the ol' brown eye! Any truth to this?

    That would make it a bit more interesting story but still not news worthy. The fact it's on every news channel multiple times a day says more about who we are then Mr quack maker ever could.

    All I know is when I line up an anus and a vagina side-by-side, as I like to do, and study them real hard, all I see is either end of a duck call. Now, I know it don't make a lot of sense, but sin never does, and so I should probably just stay away from duck calls.

    I have to say that I do rather agree with you FB, Old Duckie has as much right to his beliefs as the next person, the fact that he considers homosexuality a 'sin' is a little retarded in my book, but then that comes as no surprise. The best that can be hoped is that this whole thing dies a natural death, but sadly it seems that a lot of people are making a drama out of something that need not be. Reality show 'culture' = the death of more enlightened thought and behavior.

    He can have his own beliefs, it just sucks that particular belief is prevalent and happens to restrict the legal rights of that particular demographic.

    That being said, I don't think it deserves such a **** storm. Given the actual social issues that are ****ed and not being addressed in this country, if people went and expressed their displeasure in the political venue as they do with America's movie/music/etc stars, we'd actually get somewhere...

    I'm not on board with his beliefs either, and figure he'd think my belief in reincarnation and "one-ness" with the universe is retarded too, but I'm definitely on board with him so far as his "I yam what I yam" belief system goes. I'd drink iced tea with him anytime. I figure we'd both come away knowing something new and better for the experience. Give me one of him over a million of the common variety phonies who will say whatever it takes to profit.

    Truth be known, he'd probably just as soon not be on TV anyway. It's his sons and brother that love the spotlight.

    I watched that show for about 10 minutes once, just to see what the hoopla was about and I must say it's the dumbest, most boring thing on TV that I have ever seen. Well make that second just behind Honey Boo Boo. What gets me is that this is the #1 show on A&E with something like 10 or 11 million viewers/week. I think this says a lot about our society and it ain't good. Unfortunately it isn't going anywhere soon. Once their contract with A&E runs out I imagine they'll go somewhere else with the gang fully intact, more popular than ever.

    Go back a few years to when the writer's union couldn't reach an agreement with the studios. As a result most networks had to fill their slots with reality shows because there were no new shows written for so long. Networks feared the worst because most of the shows were so stupid, but to their surprise most of the public loved it. It's all about the money, reality shows cost so much less, networks make more profit because of it, and here we are today. Everything from self check out to the media. Can't even get the straight dope on the weather without some added drama. We're all being dumbed down and just go with the flow, so with money being king don't expect anything different unless we make it different by hitting them in the pocket book.
    Round and round we go

    People have a variety of beliefs; the world would be a terrible place to live if we all held the same beliefs. Past and present efforts to limit views are often associated with genocide. I hope we can continue to live in the world where we can say what we believe in a peaceful manner.

    Nobody is denying Phil Robertson free speech. The marketplace shall dictate if he retains his public platform. I suspect he's not going anywhere.

    Unfortunately I don't think he would. I have heard other people first hand say that they would disown their children if they were gay. Phil seems pretty wrapped up in scripture on this.

    Mostly fear does that to people... that is often at the root of most reactionary and misguided personal 'truths'. My experience shows me that most people who quote 'scripture' as a basis for living are gonna be pretty screwed up.

    I feel he has the right to say what he feels, and the network has the right to do what they feel is right, although I think A&E will follow what the almighty dollar says to do. I don't think he would disown a grandchild for being gay, if you read more of the interview he says he doesn't hate mankind, that the Bible tells him to love everyone, but hate the sin. So if he practices what he preaches...

    If he had just said that homosexuality is a sin, I doubt this would have been a big deal. But the way he said it revealed some contempt in my opinion.

    But turning a blind eye ain't any kind of answer in my view. This is a good opportunity to raise awareness of the ignorance that persists in the world we all share. Millions of Germans turned a blind eye to persecution in another form 70 odd years ago, and that didn't work out too well...

    Yet the persecution of the duck guy continues, all because of his religious beliefs. What a bunch of Hypocrites. Political Correctness gone too far. This could be a watershed moment in the continued attacks on people of faith. Not to mention that his statements were taken completely out of context and the American people pass judgment based on a snippet of a sound bite as usual. You all have been trolled.

    Political Correctness run a muck. If he were Muslim you have had no problem with what he said.

    What every left leaning paper forgot mention "I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other"

    No trollin here, the point of this is that there are 2 sides to every story. As I said, he is entitled to his views, but I believe that this interpretation of 'Faith' is misguided. I strongly believe that forming ones views from a loose affiliation of borrowed stories: The "Scriptures", and especially from those he quotes, is a recipe for continued ignorance. Just my opinion for what it's worth.

    I don't think it's politically correct or hypocritical to call out hurtful speech. Nobody is saying that the DD dude can't say what he wants but by making these public comments he's also opening himself up to pointed criticism.

    The criticism cuts two ways, yet when someone is critical of homosexuality they are labeled Bigot or worse. All that does is prove the hypocrisy of these so called tolerant people. The OP proved it in his demeaning first post.

    The irony here is that everyone is getting all cranked up about some hillbillie and his own ideas on the gay lifestyle.

    What would you expect from the guy? Expecting more is where everyone else went wrong. It's like getting mad at the dog for pooping on the lawn.
