[QUOTE=olyteddy;2714757] Freaks and bigots sell. [/QUOTE]
Since members on the forum used to be called cdfreaks it’s hard to take exception with freaks.
To me when the word bigot is used (except in extereme cases) it points the same word back at the user. The user being intollerent of the views or something else about the person he lables a bigot.
A word more suited to Hitler or David Duke.
To quote Wombler:
[QUOTE=Wombler;2714777]Civility is always possible and I can see no valid reason for anyone diverting from this.
So regardless of opinions, politeness is always a requirement here. [/QUOTE]
IMO bigot is neither civil or polite.
[QUOTE=olyteddy;2714757] I for one am glad this publicity stunt is over. [/QUOTE]
I don’t think this was a publicity stunt & this is why.
Phil Robertson would do the same thing again even if he didn’t get the suspension lifted . His family did this time & would again support him by joining him again in the suspension even if it meant the show was cancelled.
On the other hand I do think A&E turned it into a publicity stunt for their own purpose . If they were taking a real stand they would have went ahead & cancelled the show reguardless of income loss from doing so.That & other networks already making offers for the show.
A&E decided not to lose the money.
