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.

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.
