Things have changed so dramatically the past six months and in such a good way, I’ve really had nothing much to say.
I’ve lost count, but I think it’s now 18 states that allow same gender marriage. Our military is still doing just fine inspite of allowing open gays to serve our country, and I haven’t really heard much about the Boy Scouts since their modification of policy.
Well, this week I wandered into a mine field on a social media site, regarding the Phil Robertson headlines. Which obviously suggested I do still once in a while have something to say, after all.
I wholeheartedly support Phil’s right to his beliefs. I roll my eyes when he presents opinion as fact. (General opinion is that blacks did in fact, not like life better under segregation) I support this because it gives me something to write about and get worked into a frenzy over.
What I struggle with is the number of people who are outraged he was fired from his job. I suspect the ones who are the most outraged by his constitutional rights being violated are the same ones who’ve worked tirelessly to not allow constitutional law to apply to gay people, but I digress.
Phil’s consitutional rights were not violated. He was not imprisoned, arrested, or even stopped by the police for questioning. The IRS did not freeze his assets pending an investigation. Search warrants were not requested for his home, nor was his home illegally searched.
He was fired for making vile comments that have zero basis in fact that shocked and outraged his bosses and lots of Americans.
As one commentator stated, if you think freedom of speech should have no cosequences or accountability, go into your bosses office tomorrow and tell him he is a moron and has ugly children and see what happens.
