    and, as many passages of the New Testament suggest, women should be subservient to men.

    For the record, my intention is not to make light of any religious belief, no matter how extreme it is to me. But rather to make a point that it is not anti-Christian to point out the hypocrisies of the vilification of gays or support for laws discriminating against gays based on the selective literal word of the Bible.

    Nor does it make one anti-Christian or an atheist (as Palin suggests) to not want my city hall to look like church with a creche at Christmas time.

    I propose a Hunger Games type situation with the adults of the Palin family, the cast of Duck Dynasty, The Nuge and Insane Clown Posse.

    Can we also include Dog the Bounty Hunter and Steven Seagal, Lawman?

    I'd watch the shit out of that.

    I get disturbed when these incidents occur, because the mainstream impression is that this man's view is typical of all Christians; it's simply not the case, He espouses one variety (albeit a somewhat medieval one). He is certainly entitled to have and express his own opinions, but he doesn't speak for all Christians. Trying to muzzle him only compounds the problem.

    I also think that this is one of hundreds of manufactured controversies that the entertainment media love to instigate. Regardless of people's prevailing views of this situation, this man will be coached to give some form of an "apology,", he'll be reinstated, and his show (which I've never seen, actually), will see a jump in ratings. And once again, the public is made to jump, like puppets on a string.

    Call me a cynic, but......

    When did "Duck Dynasty" get the title to represent the entire human culture & beliefs for the U.S.A.? We still have Freedom of Speech, don't we? It's one stupid TV SHow...

    Equal rights for every view is the American standard, right?

    I think it's supposed to be equal rights for white male property owners (if we're going with what the founding fathers intended). Viewpoints are supposed to be subject to the marketplace.

    My sister posted this on her facebook page tonight and it pretty well sums up my feelings on the whole thing.

    Honestly, this whole situation is super depressing because now a heterosexual male cannot call another heterosexual male a "cock-gargling faggot" without someone dropping an EO complaint or it ending up on CNN.

    In related news, the entire US military has completely shut down.

    To me it reads like A&E capitulating to angry fans.

    As with most things, it's about the money.

    I tend to agree with this take. How likely is it that no one at a and e knew what was being printed in gq? And during the xmas season when disgruntled fans will likely flock to the walmart to buy their promotional crap? I smell bullshit.

    Still about the money.
