    The man expressed his opinion, which happens to agree with the Bible. I’m an agnostic who could care less who marries who and I’ve never watched duck dynasty, but give the guy a break.

    Question…all the Cons that are going off about “Freedom of speech”, and the like…if he had said that Gays should have equal rights, and that minorities were being mistreated, would they STILL be supporting him if he had been fired from the show??
    Would they STILL be supporting his “First Amendment Rights”??
    Just wondering…

    They’ll support ‘free speech’ they agree with. Not so much when it’s Martin Bashir or the Dixie Chicks. So much for principle.

    If one reads the first amendment, it will be evident to most that freedom of speech is a protection from the government. A&E is not the government. A&E is a corporation. This is not a freedom of speech issue. You can say what you want as an employee of A&E and they have the right to fire your ass for saying it.

    You know what I think is a sin? Big ugly beards. I hate them. Yuck. Disgusting. I don’t hate the people who have them, though of course I firmly believe they will go to hell, but hey, that’s not hate, that’s just my religious belief about beards. If God wanted people to have big ugly beards he would have made everyone, including women and babies, with big ugly beards. It’s a choice. You don’t have to have a big ugly beard. Big ugly beards can be cured. I mean, goats have big ugly beards, so having them is kind of animal, if you know what I mean.

    So, Antiquetracman, “We Love you, but demand you change EVERYTHING about your life so it meets OUR standards!”
    Right. Got it.

    Fantastic Duck Dynasty PR stunt. In a couple of days I suspect that whats his name will issue an apology and get more free PR.

    @lonecat

    I loved your discourse. Please write more often. I could kind of imagine Jon Stewart saying that (dead-panned, of course.)

    Mr. Luckovich doesn’t need facts or truth for his bile.
    @fredgold: you got that right. Anyone remember The Dixie Chicks?

    The trouble is “free speech” while it frees you from legal consequences, it doesn’t free you from the economic ones and rightfully so. I would have hated to be forced to buy a Dixie Chicks album.

    @Joadtom

    What if the “progressives” (as if progress itself were an evil thing!) were to then say the same about you in return. Wouldn’t that be just as true?

    He’s perfectly entitled to his uninformed opinion; but he is not entitled to be broadcast and get publicized and make money for it.

    “which happens to agree with the Bible.” Well, not necessarily. The New Testament makes it clear that there is a new set of rules.
    If you are going to follow ALL the Bible strictly, then he violates any number of other commandments in terms of his diet, clothing, etc.
    You don’t get to pick and choose that way if you want to cite the Bible as an inerrant source.

    Motivemagus, don’t you know that the Bible-Thumping Right-Wingers LOVE to cherry-pick select verses, or even parts of verses to “Prove” that their narrow-minded way of life is “The Right One”, and ignore ALL the ones that don’t go along with what THEY want to believe??

    As a character in MAD Magazine said years ago; “If you give me enough time, and enough figures, I can PROVE that Rhode Island is bigger then Texas!”It’s EXACTLY the same thing to the thumpers. “Give me enough time to pick through the verses I want, and to discard the ones I DON’T like, and I can prove that OUR restrictive, hate-filled way of life is the one God Chose!”
