A&E Suspends 'Duck Dynasty' Star after Gay Comments...my opinion on this subject.

In my house Duck Dynasty is an everyday topic, and while I would rather my kids watch this than many other shows,  I do not always agree with bearded gang's opinions and actions. 

I am often called a "modern thinker" from my family and friends, and I believe in Phil Robertson's eyes I would be doomed for hell

Well Mr. Robertson, I was not with you on that interview, so I understand your words could have been misprinted or misunderstood, but here is my opinion on your Bible thumping method. 

The fastest way to push a sinner away is to insult them, while I understand presenting the facts may be insulting, but comparing homosexuality to bestiality is horrible.  The fact is Sin is Sin, rather you lie, steal, adultery, have sex without marriage, or break any of the 10 commandments....Sin is Sin.  There is no reason to get gross or make it sound like one sin is worse than another.  

I have several of "gay" friends and family that I love dearly, and I could not think of comparing them the way you did.  Does that mean I agree with their actions? Not always,  but I love them the same and believe that on judgement day we will all have to account for actions. 

The thing is Phil, you do not realize the impact you have on people. 


Today at our breakfast table when this topic come up, 3 of the members of my household said they were going to quit watching A & E because they agree with you, one member of my household, who has no clue what bestiality or homosexuality even is, piped up and said they completely agree with you.......people do not always think for themselves and they follow "in-crowd".  

I personally feel you could have spoke your mind completely different and reached a great deal more of Americans.   Instead now all of America is in total uproar, because you have been suspended, not because we are losing people daily to the devil. 

I also do not agree with A & E suspending Phil Robertson, because as someone who speaks her mind so freely, I would think in our country he would have the right to speak his mind on his beliefs...even if we do not agree with them.  

Yesterday, my 10 year old introduced me to this new hip song Kacey Musgraves: 

"Follow Your Arrow"

If you save yourself for marriage
You're a bore
If you don't save yourself for marriage
You're a whore-able person
If you won't have a drink
Then you're a prude
But they'll call you a drunk
As soon as you down the first one

If you can't lose the weight
Then you're just fat
But if you lose too much
Then you're on crack
You're damned if you do
And you're damned if you don't
So you might as well just do
Whatever you want
So

Make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's something you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don't
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

If you don't go to church
You'll go to hell
If you're the first one
On the front row
You're self-righteous
Son of a-
Can't win for losing
You'll just disappoint 'em
Just 'cause you can't beat 'em
Don't mean you should join 'em

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's something you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don't
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

Say what you think
Love who you love
'Cause you just get
So many trips 'round the sun
Yeah, you only
Only live once

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's what you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, I would
And follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points


So Mr Robertson,  I am a whore-able person, I am a drunk (as is your family as I saw your name on a wine label this week at Wal-Mart), I am fat, but I also am on crack (as I lost a lot of weight at one time), I am doomed for hell, because I don't go to church every Sunday, but when I do go I am "self-righteous" as I tend to sit close to the front.  

My point is you do not live in every house in America, you cannot throw stones from glass castles as one day those stones will break enough windows and your glass castle with crumble.   

Please use your influence on a America for a GOOD purpose, not just to make money and buy big toys!

Born a Female, Made a Feminist

Sunday over lunch I told my family “I am a feminist” and they laughed at me.   As I sat there, I remembered we have forgotten what a true fe...
