Why I Stand With Phil Robertson

Hello dear readers,

Just a posting to let you know that I stand with Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson – and a brief explanation of why.

My bottom line is this: I don’t care, or want to know about, people’s sexuality. Which means, I don’t care if someone is gay or straight. I have plenty of other things to worry about in life other than what people said about homosexuality…that’s not about me, anyway. Yes, I know what the Bible says about it, but as a Christian, I find it entirely invasive to ask or talk to people about their sexuality, and I won’t answer questions about mine.

You may be a different flavor of Christian than I am. You won’t get an argument outta me for that reason alone. Even if you’re not a Christian, think how you’d like.

The show “Duck Dynasty” is realllllly funny, IMHO, so I’d watch it regardless of the family’s religious beliefs.

There’s a hugely supportive Facebook page that someone started:

Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck Dynasty

The A&E channel who produces the “Duck Dynasty” show is allowed to suspend anyone they want, but they’ve got to deal with the backlash. The Robertson family, if it wanted, could totally produce their own show – say whatever they want, do whatever they want – and still have a gazillion viewers. A&E isn’t needed at this point.
So…my support is for free speech. Phil Robertson did nothing illegal, and he’s entitled to his own opinion.
Talk on!
