Ugh, I'm going to kick myself for even posting, but let me fix this for everyone.

1.  It's silly that A&E got upset when someone gave an honest answer to a question asked in an interview.

2.  Whoever this duck guy is said some inflammatory things that many, including me, don't agree with.


4.  It's.

5.  A.

6.  Reality.

7.  Television.

8.  Show.

The impression that I get is that duck man is pretty open about his beliefs and doesn't sugar coat things.  That being said, even if he's extremely sincere about how he feels, he is signed up to do a reality television show on A&E. He has become a brand, a character, whether he wanted that or not.  So, people, if you're upset about his views, don't watch the show or read the interview.  A&E...that's dumb that you suspended him...or genius, since now people will tune in to see what this guy's all about.  And everyone else signing petitions or support things or even, holy hell, prayer chains?  I mean, what the are indignant about what...that this guy is getting more publicity and bringing attention to his Christian beliefs?  Is he going to be in poverty getting suspended from this show?  Are people going to be like...hey, we can sin it up now that A&E suspended this guy because we take our queues from reality television!  Pray for whomever and whatever you want, be my guest...but remember - there are a LOT more important things to be praying about, and that's not just my opinion, it's the truth.  Have I mentioned that this is a reality show?  Like The Hills...only with ducks I guess.  But I don't know, I've never watched.

A very good friend of mine who happens to be gay said it so well...'if the message is about tolerance and respect then leave the duck guy alone. It's his opinion and he's entitled to it. To persecute him, suspend him or whatever doesn't help the gay/lesbian community. We want tolerance for all and that includes someone we don't agree with.'
