    Opinion: Phil Robertson Controversy

     
    Phil Robertson of Ducky Dynasty expressed an idea, and opinion that is contrary to what gays and lesbians believe. He believes that homosexuality is a sin. The result of his comments in his GQ Magazine's interview was that he was fired for what he believed and he was condemned by several organizations such as GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign.

    I believe in Phil Robertson's assessment, that homosexuality is a sin, and I also believe in the notion that if two consenting adults wish to engage in that life style, than they should be free to do so long as they do not violate the rights of others, or their neighbors.

    What is interesting is that it is okay to express views that go along with the mainstream elite, politically correct or liberal crowd, but the moment you say something contrary to their beliefs, suddenly than, you are labeled as some racist, homophobic or even "islamophobic" individual. Of course, this is done without knowing the individual or even trying to understand why they believe the way that they do.

    Remember, our Constitution not only protects popular speech or opinions, but our Founding Fathers, put the 1st Amendment to the Constitution to protect unpopular speech as well.
