I still don’t understand the shock value here. What he said was, needless to say, wrong. But people are seriously shocked that some redneck with a beard down to his dick sitting in a boat in the middle of a swamp shooting varmits said it? What the Hell do people expect? Him to have some kind of progressive views on same sex marriage?

I think everyone has the right to they’re beliefs but don’t believe what he says is correct but the fact of what are we telling our children about they’re own beliefs he said what he said it is his gods given right to believe it just like the gay people of the world have a right to they’re beliefs and opinions if we have to cricket everything that people say what does it say for our future are we not aloud our beliefs or opinions anymore

I don’t see what’s racist here. He never says black people where not mistreated he just says he never saw it. I never saw it either, does that make me a racist. He never said there was no point to the civil rights movement, that is just putting words into someone’s mouth. Also he was asked for his opinion on what was sinful. He stated from his beliefs what was sinful. Why is it okay to say from your belief or LGBT’s, that homosexuality is okay, but it is not okay to say that it is not to say what he believes when he was asked. This is discrimination to allow one groups opinions and not to allow an others.

I HAVE A DREAM, TOO
by Jesse McKay

Under the Hays code, frank discussions about homosexuality were forbidden in broadcasts of any kind. The Hays code was weakened in the 1960s and eventually discarded as “censorship” which was blocking “free speech.” By the 1980s and 1990s, everyone was talking about homosexuality, with increasing affirmation of group “rights” (first to preference, then to activity, then engaging mainstream religious and personal views as “square” and then “hatred.”) But now censorship is OK, as long as those doing the censorship are the gay mafia or the black racists. These model human beings have no tolerance for either one man’s point of view (Robertson’s) or this man’s callous display of a sticky piece of plastic (bumper sticker) affirming Robertson’s right to the same free speech as anyone else. It was just last fall that the gay mafia demanded Duck Dynasty’s expulsion because Robertson spoke his mind.

I have a dream, too: that one day people will judged based on the content of their character, not the content of their bumper stickers.
