Duck Dynasty Gate, Are Gays the Bigots?
It looks to me like the main stream media including Bill O’Reilly have been reporting the wrong impression as to why the radical gay left is ticked off at Phil Robertson’s statements. You know, the ones he made off the set and not on the popular A&E program, yeah those comments. He made them in a “private” interview with GQ magazine. They all think the radical gay left are PO’d about the you’re going to hell stuff. From what I read it’s not that at all. I’m posting this article by By Brandon Ambrosino of TIME, an openly gay man, that says something else, see if you can figure it out.
I am posting his article for fairness and because he asks why the radical leftist gay community (my words not his) do not engage in a dialogue with their opponents instead of silencing them. Good question, but I think Mr. Ambrosino will probably personally find out as soon as they rake him over the coals for asking the question.
I accept his offer and would like to engage in a dialogue about this issue and will do so in some posts coming to this web site soon.

As you can imagine, everyone had an opinion about this statement, including GLAAD and Phil’s check-signer, A&E, who suspended the star indefinitely.
