A&E fired the star of not just its #1-rated series, but the top-rated series in the history of cable television.
That's not just shooting yourself in the foot; that's chainsawing your leg off at the hip.
This will go down as the stoopidest move in television programming history. He could have been less crass about it, but Robertson said nothing any more offensive than the vast majority of other series. Based on Robertson's comments, I'd say that he's expressing the heart of a true Christian: love God, and love each other. When Phil Robertson said that he has no hate toward anyone else and that God created each of us equal and loves us in spite of how wayward we go from Him, I can't but trust his heart on the matter.
Let's say this for what it really is: Phil Robertson and the rest of his family on Duck Dynasty are coming under attack because they won't endorse the homosexual lifestyle. This isn't about "intolerance" on Phil's part: if anything it's the people at GLAAD and the Human Rights Initiative that are being intolerant toward others.
This is about perhaps, at most, 3% of the population demanding that it's not enough that their lifestyle be accepted, but that it also must be admired.
Phil Robertson can't do that. Neither can I.
Gay, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders are not a "persecuted" class of people. They have no basis to claim being oppressed or attacked. All they have in the public arena of ideas is proclaiming themselves to be victims demanding attention and sympathy.
Please, somebody tell me: how is one man shoving his penis up another man's anus an act requiring sympathy and compassion on my part?
Okay, maybe I could have been less crass there, too. But ya gotta admit: Phil Robertson is only asking what has been on the minds of a vast number of people. Certainly more than the number of militant homosexual lobbyists now crying for Robertson blood.
