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?

My definition would be a country where one is free to live as they want without any kind of discrimination and as long as they harm no one else.

Thats pretty simple. Its also pretty much what we already have.

Just seems some people are pretty he11 bent on seeing things only done the way they approve.

I mean do you guys actually want total religious control of this nation by Christians?

Then we'd be closer to what Iran and Saudi Arabia have than what this nation was founded on.

Speaking of the founding of this nation.

So what those folks back then were Christians?

Am I not free to chose how to live my life and worship what I want if I want too?

Am I not allowed to be free from the influences of a religion I do not chose for myself?

No one is making anyone accept anything when it comes to religion when it comes to what the right has to say on this issues of secularity and homosexuality.

People just want the room to live their lives as they wish without any discrimination.

The reason so many on the right feel like they are being made to accept the beliefs of others is simply because you guys don't want to mind your own business and just live your own lives.

For you to live comfortably you can't have anyone else around you that isn't like you.

"MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry concluded the “What’s So Funny About 2013?” segment of her Sunday show with a chorus of laughter at the black grandson pictured in former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s family Christmas photo. The chuckles were directed at baby Kieran – who was adopted by Romney’s son Ben and his wife Andelynne in September." have at it ladies and gents.....do politics allow for a pass on racism?????

Because I know the point will be brought up I'll deal with it now.

Homosexuality is destroying the fabric of the family unit in this country.

For one thing its not.

Another thing. Anti-gays worry so much about the family being hurt by homosexuality but where is their crusade to cut down on the amount of divorces?

Put that right next to the "war" on Christmas.

God the drama surrounding that topic.

But I have to ask this? You say the secular world is trying to wrest the holiday away from Christians. Atheists get the blame.

What about the retail industry that has pretty much shifted the focus on buying gobs of crap rather than the true spirit of the holiday?

Not a peep to the capitalists that have really taken the holiday for themselves.

Whats hilarious is people who shoot their mouth off and then are taken to task for their comments.

Express a nasty opinion toward someone out in the public sphere...then you should be ready to take flak for it.

We all know the old saying.

If you aint got nothing nice to say then don't say anything.

Here is a dang simple question I have for people against homosexuals.

Is this not a free country?

You dont have to accept their lifestyle..no one is making you do so...live and let live..leave each other alone...and shut the heck up.

How hard is that?

So why are "Gays" pressing for acceptance into our military? I know you're not all Taoists, but I'm just trying to create a program for the audience to follow.

So, since Taoism was used as the propellant for Cao Cao's rise to power in olden China, when you die, do you wish to be buried in Hallowed ground (facing East) or in a WalMart parking lot?

Twist it around however you like asknot. I aint posting my opinion lest you would say I was racist or a hater or an IDIOT for believing something and maybe misquoting something of some kind.

Posted 276 days ago.

thegreek

No the Greek I never said that and you know it, stop twisting my words to get out of the fact you're wrong. Hence you already admitted to yesterday I think. State your opinion, FINE, state it with facts, FINE, but defend it with hate and lies...NOT FINE! Like I said, look how LTS defends the same beliefs you have and look at my responses! Theres a way to argue your beliefs, but hate/bigotry etc doesn't belong in them. HATE AND LIES - SHOW ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some one calls me a racist to my face in a bar or a bigot or what you called me I would not have Jesus patience I would bust their noses. It may be the only shot I got in but I would maker count. TWEET that to your pals see what they think of THAT..

You do, and you push for intolerance! I've never stated your beliefs/lifestyle should be shut down, BUT, you push that others should! See the difference? State your opinion, but don't advocate for shutting down of individuals rights that are of no harm/no foul to you;)

AND AGIAN IF YOU DIDNT UNDERSTAND IT

Asknot ME TWIST YOUR WORDS - OK big dipstick here it is from a half an hour ago. Greek, no the opposite is true! If you watch my conversation with LTS, which shares your view, you'll see nothing but acceptance and polite disagreement! Because he/she doesn't push his/her values with ignorance! You do, and you push for intolerance! I've never stated your beliefs/lifestyle should be shut down, BUT, you push that others should! See the difference? State your opinion, but don't advocate for shutting down of individuals rights that are of no harm/no foul to you;) I don't appreciate being called the names YOU called me so REPOST IT OR SHUT UP !!!!!!

As we've seen, when it comes to Democrats being in the majority, it's "our way or the highway" (ObamaCare).

When it's Democrats in the minority it's "where is the compromise" (the present US House and individuals such as asknot).

asknot - I've always believed that God REALLY has to have a sense of humor. I can't help but wonder which side of our tit-for-tat He's laughing at. Mine, just trying to jerk your chain (and MAYBE wake you up) or your's, advocating the practice of men laying with men?

"Send them out, so that we might KNOW them".
