While the point about A&E being private property is well-taken
, I'd like to challenge d_r, who referred to Phil's remarks as a "homophobic rant" in his JE, to look at what was actually said
and justify either adjective:
Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong... Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men." Robertson then paraphrased Corinthians from the Bible: "Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers--they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."
And if that wasn't explicit enough, the "Duck Commander" added: "It seems like, to me, a vagina--as a man--would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical.
To call these remarks either homophobic OR a rant is to be either lobotomized or just an abject, lying fool. I fail to grasp how any sober, mature, honest person, even if not in agreement, can characterize the fauxtrage of d_r and ilk as anything other than "Utterly fascist and utterly Stalinist:
". . .this is the level of punitive [political correctness], utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist, OK, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades. It's the whole legacy of the free speech 1960's that have been lost by my own party."
All I can say, d_r, is: you GO, girl!
