Unless you live unepder a rock, you already know Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson was "suspended" today by his employer, A&E for statements he made in a GQ interview echoing traditional Christian beliefs about homosexuals (and plenty of other sinners, but the prostitute, beastiality, slanderer, and swindler lobbies are thus far silent).
This is a free country and Phil was only expressing his views, which are based in his religion (and mine, by the way). A&E can do whatever they want, they owe him no platform, and he wasn't using the show directly as that platform.
But, let's face it, to express traditional Christian views these days about homosexuality in particular puts you in the cross-hairs of the biggest grievance lobby extant. Emboldened by their success in turning traditional marriage into something new, this lobby has decided that anyone who finds their behavior abhorrent and anti-God must be squelched. You shall not know that a major religion considers homosexuality a sin, punishable by death!
OOOOOOOPS! Wrong religion there! That's Islam which considers homosexuality a sin, punishable by death. Christianity considers it a sin, but offers the sinner a path to redemption via God's amazing Grace. That's Mr. Robertson's religion.
Were he a Muslim, would A&E had been so quick to suspend him?
I'm guessing not.
