Did You Actually Read The GQ Article?
Before all the whining continues about what you heard that Phil Robertson said, please read the ‘GQ’ article.  For me the article was pretty much straight (apologies to the ‘happiness‘ community) forward.  A mid-60s guy who actually says what he thinks without dancing around any topic on the table.  A guy who took 24 years, lot’sa booze, lot’sa drugs with lot’sa wild women to finally hit bottom and discover that finding religion was the only way out of the hole he’d dug for himself.
So…. why did Phil‘s opinions and comments cause such a kerfuffle?!?  I really think the ‘happiness-alphabet (LGBT)‘ community really jumped the gun on this one.  Christianity has been around for 2,000 years~~about 80% of the current US population~~ while OPEN homosexuality~~the ‘happiness’ gang~~only for the past 100 years or so with about 2% of the population.  How can said community expect a complete ‘turn around’ by the Christians toward the ‘happiness’ activities in a mere 100 years after Christianity being the dominant belief for the previous 1,900 years?!?  It’s time for the ‘happiness brigade’ to develop some tolerance for opposing views~~as they demand from the rest of the planet~~rather than whining and whining until they’re appeased just to shut’em up!!
That’s all I got.
Til Nex’Time….
