If instead he'd have come out in favor of railing a chicken or something our society would embrace him. He'd be lauded as compassionate, accepting and a role model for generations to come. [/qb][/QUOTE]I for one, am glad that it appears a majority of our society has chosen not to "embrace" "Mr." Robertson, and his bigotry. "Mr." Robertson claims he is "a product of the 60's", and it shows. These days, most people would agree that women should not be objectified as a reproductive organ, blacks [b]were[/b] mistreated and discriminated against in the 60's and many states now allow homosexuals to get married. It's called tolerance and it's obvious that "Mr." Robertson doesn't have any... but that is his right I suppose... IMO, he should step out of the swampy backwoods and join the 21st century, or get used to the backlash from his backwards way of thinking. [/qb][/QUOTE]So in other words... You are right He is wrong You are tolerant He is not He deserves to be punished for stating his beliefs You should not be punished for stating yours Is that about right? [/qb][/QUOTE]The first two? Yes. The last one? No. "Mr." Robertson and I can say whatever we want, but there will be consequences, good or bad, and the 1st Amendment does nothing regarding those consequences unless congress chooses to pass some sort of law about it as a result.
