On Phil Robertson and A&E

By now, you've already heard: patriarch of the Robertson Clan, Phil, was interviewed by GQ; he was asked his opinion on what sin was; he went ahead and told the interviewer the unvarnished truth.

And GLAAD (probably the angriest bunch of people you've ever heard of), flipped out over Phil's comments concerning homosexuality.

In today's society, sadly, that's something to be expected.  So was the follow-up by A&E, which indefinitely suspended Phil for the comments.

Here's the thing that gets me:
"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty'," the network [A&E] said in a statement.' (emphasis mine)
Really?  Strange, that; all the episodes I've watched of the series includes prayer or some other reference to the Christian faith.

What, are A&E reps not watching their own shows?

The thing that really bothers me about this is that we have the beliefs of what? 2% of the population? forced down our throats everywhere. In schools, in media, everywhere. What ever happened to majority? What ever happened to freedom of religion, freedom of speech? We have to watch the LGBTQ community parade naked in vulgar fashion in their parades etc. But we are not supposed to put up a nativity scene, THAT is offensive. I could go on and on.

Rush Limbaugh always says that there is a "tipping point" coming, a point at which some little thing is going to happen, and the people will say "that is enough". I don't know if this is the tipping point or not. but it should be a good shove in the right direction.

Right Truth

p.s. I've never watched the show either, but one would have to live in a cave NOT to know what they stand for and that they are strong Christians first before anything else.
