Ok, enough is enough. Phil Robertson had the right to say his peace. No matter what some say, he did not spew hatred or bigotry. When asked, he listed some sins, said we are all sinners and he does not judge anyone. If fact, he said he loves all of God’s children alike and it is up to God to judge us. He did not write the Bible, but he paraphrased it.
A&E, although I do not agree with their decision, they did what they did legally. It was their prerogative to do within the law whatever they deemed necessary. It is done and all the venom flying back and forth will not change it.
The haters are going to take Robertson’s words out of context and try and destroy him. His supporters are becoming tempered more and more against them and I’m now seeing vulgarities out of this side. We have unfortunately became a divided nation through politics and now the chasm between the right and left has become more prominent, because of religious view (or the lack thereof).
I think both sides have said enough to understand how the other side stands and it is time to step back and let it take its natural course between the Robertson family and A&E.
If the special interest groups on both sides continue to try and escalate the situation, it would be best for everyone else to ignore them. GLAAD, LBGT, NAACP, WBC, and any I may have missed to include media outlets, mind your own business and quit trying to use issues between others to get what you feel is your share of the air time.
It is unfortunate that this should happen in the days leading up to Christmas when we should be focusing on the celebration of the birth of the Christ child and what the holiday is supposed to be about. But it happened; the media broke this story to promote the sales of a magazine, a television station, and possibly the show itself.
Now, its time to quit acting like sheep being lead wherever the media wants us to go and return to living our lives, celebrating the birth of Jesus (if so inclined), and getting along.
