When should a person be punished for stating an opinion?

As many people might know, 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson gave an interview to GQ Magazine and gave his colorful opinion on different social topics. The response from various groups made A&E pull him from the show. So the discussion is, if someone is asked for their opinion and gives it willingly, should they be punished afterward?

moderation, good morning. i must wonder why in the world you would expend so much effort in which to find the tarnish on a reality show individual when the character flaws are so readily apparent with your preferred president and his administration. quite frankly...his beliefs are not beyond the less vocal of our society. thank God for the ability to have private thought....our government bugs everything else.... so far.

Yes sir mod. He walked off the field, told Bradshaw he could have $1 spot. He was going duck hunting. I have read their books.

Greek- of course IT IS STAGED !! It is the content that contradicts phil's godly way. He could have asked for forgiveness before he consumed that meal.He stole it.By the way, did you know he was the starting quarterback ahead of terry bradshaw in his college football days?

Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana who suggested on December 19 that A&E did not believe "in the First Amendment," said Friday that he was glad the channel's executives "came to their senses and recognized that tolerance of religious views is more important than political correctness." Jindal added, "Today is a good day for the freedoms of speech and religious liberty. The left is going to have to get accustomed to the fact that it does not have a monopoly on free speech and is not the only group who is permitted to voice its opinion in the public square. The left may control Hollywood, but they don't control the hearts and minds of a majority of Americans."

Guess money talks louder to A&E then frustrated people who don't even watch the show.

A& E also put in false blleps of cuss words that the Robertsons did not even say. They would just throw one of those bleeps in there when someone was saying a decent word to tryy to add color to the show. Phil got on them for that because they dont cuss. They also wanted him to quit with the gunplay and saying Jesus name. He told the to take a hike.

A&E didnt have much choice but to reinstate Phil that is.

A&E didnt have much choice. A&E and GLAAD have pretty much showed their hind sides on this one that they think no one should buck them or their opinions. Turned out people love the Robertsons more than they anticipated and Hollywierd just doesnt get why. You can tell them why but they dont buy it. They think everyone in rural areas are stupid hicks that they can make fun of. But Phil has a degree so it didnt wash here. Heee heeee

Moderation. If they were stealing frogs (good grief) why didnt the country club have them arrested instead of letting them loose with an apology. In REALITY, (since it IS a reality show) I would say A&E staged the whole thing for the camera and the country clubbers were in on it since there WAS a camera crew and lighting crew out on the course during the night that could be seen for MILES ???!!!! Goodness, some of you all are sorta gullible...They are REALITY stars playing ******* hillbillies and proud to do so. In reality, they live in a great suburb and the old home site is for filming purposes.

Well, prepare for the Phil Robertson "haters" skulls to explode in...5......4......3......2......1! A & E has "reinstated" Phil Robertson to the cast of Duck Dynasty effective 27 December 2013!

Guess they learned that the entire family (and Cable TV's highest rated show), could (and likely would) walk away.

Is there any way to stop the C and C Toyota add from showing up when the Times page loads up? How about the ZEDO adds?
