“Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons. Doesn't seem right.”
You are overgeneralizing based on media reports that are anything but scientific. Demographics are shifting, but they haven't shifted. I live in the only state in the country where non-whites outnumber whites. Guess what? We have a Republican governor. So honestly Buddy, I have no idea what you're talking about. I've seen links to clips and articles from Fox that talk about nonsense like the war on Christmas, the was on Christians, etc. But I've yet to actually see it.
But dear god, it's becoming trendy for those on the right to play the victim. Not you that I've ever seen, but we have MAYHEM here throwing his whole woe-is-me shtick around...
Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?

If everyone got fired for something someone considered "offensive", especially when it has nothing to do with your job at all. Then we would all be on the dole. Once again I think this is all a distraction that's fast becoming the next circus show. I don't agree with his views and support equal rights 100%. However this whole thing is being WAY overblown. Who f***ing cares? A bible thumping redneck who wears deer camo thinks homosexuality is a sin and vagina is far more preferable than a man's a$$. I can easily say I agree with 50% of that statement.

As rob has said and lots of other people including myself have said about Biblical morality -- the Bible says a lot of things you don't agree with. The wearing of clothes made of two different fabrics being immoral, for example, which rob pointed out. Or handling the skin of a pig and/or eating a pig. The acceptability of stoning rebellious children and/or genocide. There are at least a few dozen passages in the Bible that all sane people realize and accept are just daffy and they ignore them.
You are making an active choice to ignore those passages of the Bible and accept the passages about homosexuality. That says something about how you feel about gays. You might want to inquire into your own heart and conscience why you feel the need to try to hide these implications.

God bless Phil Robertson for being a godly man who is willing to stand for God and that which is right!
What he said about the abomination (as it is called in the Bible), is absolutely, positively, without question, 100% TRUE! Many simply refuse to believe it; however, they will be found wrong upon our Lord and Savior Jesus' return.

The downtrodden have become empowered and now want to inflict that which was inflicted upon them. They justify their actions by citing all of the wrongs done to their ancestors. They even coined a ridiculous term, reverse discrimination, that clearly implies that only the establishment can discriminate. Sorry, discrimination is discrimination and inflammatory is inflammatory...the race, religion, creed, etc. of the idiot spewing the garbage is completely irrelevant.

And the definition of "homophobia" includes fear. It implies ill will or extreme disdain, of which I have none. But at the end of the day, if believing that homosexuality is a sin is homophobic, then I suppose I'm homophobic and I'm not going to apologize for that.
Jesus did talk about a man and a woman. He was quoting Genesis, actually. He quoted the Old Testament often, and even said explicitly of himself that he wasn't there to get discard of the Old Testament. He was there to fulfill it. In other words, it still counts. And you and everyone else has to make choices about which parts of it -- and the New Testament, for that matter, it's hardly uncorrupted -- they accept. This whole thing where people throw up their hands as if they have no choice over what they believe is just so much passing the buck.
I mean, when you think about it, it's really quite incredible. Christians who made a choice to become Christians screaming about how persecuted they are as if they have no choice about their views ABOUT people who are born a certain way and therefore have literally no choice over who they are.
It's like a goddamn irony bomb.
