My Thoughts on Phil Robertson

OK so I'm not gonna rant to much here because I know everybody else is regarding Phil Robertson, but I'll tell you what I think. Because, well, it's my blog.

Those on the left say he's a bigot for his anti-gay remarks in his GQ interview. Those on the right say his firing, or suspension is a violation of his First Amendment rights to Freedom of Speech.

Here's the thing. Who gives a shit? I mean really? I can't believe this is such an issue. Are we really surprised that a 67 year old man from the south believes that gays are going to hell? So he said what he thinks. What he believes. Big deal. And come on with the violation of his rights. He said things that his boss didn't approve of and got in trouble for it. Period. Look, do you think for a minute that if I was at work, and started bashing Sue in Accounting, or Dave in Production and my boss didn't care for it that I wouldn't be in HR explaining myself? Pa-lese.

I think the bigger issue here is that GQ is interviewing a man who eats squirrel brains.
