My Two Scents on Phil's Suspension from Duck Dynasty
I am not biased towards either side. I just have one question, if someone comes and says something condemning to The Robertson Family or Christianity are you going to suspend that person or persons too? Not likely.
What was one thing this country was built for? Freedom of speech. You are taking away Phil's right to speak.
You think you guys are being a hero, you are not. Why? Because people have been attacking Christians for centuries so who is going to defend them? Are they less important? Last I thought, they had beating hearts with emotion too.
Although it was something that might have needed to have been kept to himself, the person that asked him has just as much blame. Would you have liked for him to lie? If I wanted to see a bunch of liars, I would have watched one of your other shows.
I admire him for standing up for what he believes in. That is how you recognize the real people from the fakers. Nobody seems to be doing that nowadays for fear of what other people may think. The Robertsons aren't loved for just being funny, they are loved by so many people because they are the only 'real' family on television. Being funny is just a plus for so many people.
Just by saying that is what he believes in doesn't mean he's going to go after every person that is in the LGBT. He'll love them just as much as he loves every other living person because that is also what God teaches. I think it's just a big misunderstanding.
In the long run, words are just words, they aren't bullets. I can name tons of your other stars that have said or done hurtful things and didn't get punished.
If you want to ruin one of your top shows, I guess it's up to you if you want to lose that money.
If I've learned anything from the Robertsons, it's that I'm going to put my two cents in.
