US: Duck Dynasty live show cancelled due to poor ticket sales after anti-gay controversy

  • Craig

    Bye bye, Duckwits!!! Now, if only their tiresome show about the antics of Deepfried Southern yokelry went down the gurgler due to insufficient audience numbers, my joy would be complete. Here’s a thought- why don’t we make sure it doesn’t get airtime in overseas markets by complaining about it to the networks that broadcast it?

  • James Orpin

    Why ‘homophobic’ and not homophobic. Is there any doubt over his intention/meaning?

  • End To Duc Bux

    Bunch of Quacks..”.. Go Duc Yoself, I mean Duc Off. Hahhahah

  • █ █ █ €ώąɲ█ █ █

    Aww I would go just so I could heckle and lot crap at him in public

    • Steven Gregory

      Laugh through a duck call, that would be disruptive.

  • Steven Gregory

    A friend of mine who used to enjoy this show and switched it off immediately put it in the best terms: “This was brainless TV at its easiest, then it immediately became complicated and it became impossible to get through without thinking, ‘These guys are really a55holes.’”

    • kim

      So your friend is only capable of watching brainless tv and had to turn it off when he had to start thinking? Wow!

      • Steven Gregory

        Do you have that much difficulty with comprehension?
        My friend is not capable ONLY of watching brainless TV, but when that is how a show is presented and then it no longer functions that way, it’s off. Did that help, or should I use shorter words for you.

      • Mac

        Kim, do you even read the comments or do you just enjoy mindless trolling? Not too bright.

  • Cal

    It would be great to think that the falling ratings and poor ticket sales are because of a general distaste for their bigotry. Whatever the reason, goodbye.

  • deadkenny

    What ” controversy ” ? Apparently the only people holding onto the ” gay rant ” chapter of the book are working for Pink News . Who cares what Phil Robertson does or doesn’t believe …nobody listens to the guy and it never would have been such a scandal if it hadn’t been picked up by the press and worked over so hard . The show was pretty popular for a reason …there are lots of bored folks out there channel surfing every night who just love the feeling of superiority that comes after watching a bunch of bumpkins and listening to their fascinating scripted repartee . It’s natural that it would decline …..people are tired of hearing them sputter and drawl about squirrels , frogs and Miss Kay’s latest dog acquisition . Put another way ….the decline may actually be enhanced if the PC Cops drop their fixation on what Phil’s doing and just let the show fade in to the sunset .

    • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

      You obviously didn’t hear his opinions on child marriage, and the exploitation of women.

      Would rejecting those opinions also be nothing but Political Correctness?

      • Philip Bou

        Ibviously you didn’t watch the show !

      • deadkenny

        That’s exactly what it is ….you’re entitled to a free expression of your view , same for Robertson ……” rejecting ” somebody else’s opinion just because it doesn’t happen to fit in with modern thinking is a slippery slope .

  • Philip Bou

    Springfield must be full of gays

  • Thunder Struck

    Those of you that continually condemn Phil Robertson for simply answering a question truthfully are nothing more than hypocrites. People are allowed to differ in beliefs, however some of you think that anyone that isn’t receptive of your values is “homophobic” , “racist” or whatever card you want to play that day. But yet must of you preach tolerance. Obviously the Robertson family has more integrity than most on this post. Some of you actually called them “dumb” , “redknecks” , but they sure are wealthy. I would be willing to bet that most of you haters watch trash like the “Kardashians”. You you are real winners

    • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

      He has the right to his opinion, and we have the right to ours.

      What part of this are you not getting? You think only the religious or right wing have the right to freedom of speech and opinion?

      You see, what some don’t like is that our opinions of tolerance and moderate thinking are more popular than his opinions of religious dominance over others, THAT’S probably what you’re really complaining about.

      He expressed his opinion, which he has the right to do. Millions of others have expressed theirs, which is also their right.

      • Thunder Struck

        I respect the fact that everyone can have their own opinion, but when opinions are based off of half truths or lies it becomes uneducated babble.Trying to ruin someones reputation over babble and lies is imorale and shows zero tolerance for others or the truth. You also stated “You see, what some don’t like is that our opinions of tolerance and moderate thinking are more popular than his opinions of religious dominance over others”. If that were true and your beliefs were SO POPULAR wouldn’t your post have more likes than mine….Food for thought!

        • Tim Krikau

          Wealth is not an indicator of intelligence. In fact, I would state that the Robertsons are much brighter than the Kardashians.

          I will also concede the “half-truths” and people being quick to condemn by reading a headline and going on that alone. However, I read the article, and I’m not sure if the half-truths claim is applicable. Plus, it’s not so much what he said, but how he said it, For me, there was no mistaking the context or the content of the article. At best, he came across as out-of-touch with the current societal stratosphere (or refuses to accept it, either way)…at worst, he came across a racist, homophobe. Whether he is or not is immaterial at this time…doesn’t matter any more.

          Also your argument about “likes” on your post is meaningless. You have 12, BlokeToy has 8…in statistics, that’s actually sorta even. But more to the point, the number of “like” pales in comparison to the dollars not spent to see them live. Nobody gives a damn how many likes you got…and I certainly couldn’t care less if I got one on this post.

          The only vote that matters is dollars spent. In the world that the Duck Dynasty show lives in…the only thing that matters is money…and consumers vote with their cash. If people aren’t spending the money to see these guys…well the votes are in…nobody wants to see too much of them any more.

          • Thunder Struck

            Read my latest post. You like to speak about dollars, rating make dollars. The live performance isn’t the show.

          • Tim Krikau

            Ratings do make dollars…true…but when ratings are in a decline (albeit a slow one)…that is cause for concern. I think DD is getting played out and has lost their appeal because well…you can only make so many silly shows about faux rednecks that can hold people’s attention. I find Uncle Sy’s green cup more interesting than most of the “plots” in the episode.

            I was using the show as a point of reference in terms of how ratings dollars work. I was directly commenting on the lack of interest in the live show where people aren’t paying money to go see them like they did before. Nothing else.

        • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

          “when opinions are based off of half truths or lies it becomes uneducated babble.”

          You mean, half truths and lies such as those presented from a book of religious delusion that directly contradicts all reality?

          ” If that were true and your beliefs were SO POPULAR wouldn’t your post have more likes than mine….Food for thought!”

          Fact – DADT was ended, same sex marriage is passing all over the US, Prop 8 was overturned, Ellen Degenres is one of the most popular American celebrities, the statistics from the last election proves that the Republican Party is declining amongst young voters…

          Reality is your friend, however much you want to try to reject it for your religious delusion. In addition, the reason your comment has more votes is because you have a little gang of right wing nutters following you and voting up your comment. You’re on a gay news site, do you REALLY think LGBT people would be voting up your delusional comments? Not a chance.

          • Thunder Struck

            As i stated earlier i respect the right for everyone to have their own opinion, you have yours. While i disagree with your calling the BIBLE “a book of religious delusion” that is your choice. Believe in the Big Bang all you want (pun intended) as for me and my family we will follow the Lord.
            So if i am correct you believe in Evolution. If in fact Evolution were true and the world was to be full of homosexuals, nothing would have evolved, no reproduction. I still believe that entrances are entrances and exits are exits. I didn’t come on this site knowing that it was a gay forum i just followed the headline, so i have NO gang following me around only rational people.

          • Gary D. Sargent

            You were doing fine, presenting a decently rational rebuttal, until you got to Evolution, and threw it all away with your dogma. It is the mark of the dogmatic to sneer at science, as you have done. Be careful of that pride and haughtiness. It’s a major stumbling block for people, such as yourself. Science, like the Bible, will contradict itself, at times, however, science has the ability to correct those errors.
            You say that you respect the right of everyone to have their opinion, and yet, your reply reeks of a patronizing attitude which puts lie to that statement.

          • Derek McIntyre

            I said, drag your sorry BUTT back to the 1860′s WHERE IT BELONGS!!!!!

          • Yesh U R

            Time was, a picture of an infinitely tiny point could have been described with a simple caption: “The universe, actual size.” That’s clearly not the case anymore, and it’s close to unanimously accepted that what changed everything was a primal explosion known as the Big Bang, which occurred 13.8 billion years ago. Now a single observation has all but nailed down the Big Bang, eliminating the few other remaining scientific theories about how the universe began. In the bargain, it has also at last confirmed the existence of what are known as gravitational waves and the inflationary universe.

            Gravitational waves were first described by Albert Einstein, who 99 years ago envisioned all space-time as a sort of cosmic fabric that could be warped and jiggled the way a trampoline can be set shaking by a dropped bowling ball.

            You keep on reciting the Flavian family book of how to rule idiots if it makes you feel important.

    • Baboo

      Freedom of speech is a two-way street. He is 100% entitled to believe what he wants, but we are also 100% entitled to think what we want about him based to his opinions, and choose not to watch his show. The show was cancelled because not enough people are interested in watching him anymore, not because people are actively trying to suppress his free speech. It sounds like you’re just a bit worried that you’re starting to look like the black sheep of the pack and have nobody around you to validate your stupid opinions anymore.

      • Thunder Struck

        Baboo, You know not what you speak!!!! What show was cancelled? And look again Baboo, more people like my comments that yours, therefore you seem to be the black sheep.

    • Mac

      ” People are allowed to differ in beliefs”
      Of course they are, but they’re not allow immunity to being called out for stupid ones. THAT is free speech. One has the right to talk, and others have the right to challenged it.

      • kim

        You have the right to say something intelligent yet you keep throwing it away.

        • Mac

          I’m sorry, I’ve seen your comment’s here. They lack any substance other than petty nonsense. I suggest next time you put up an intelligent retort, rather than that stupid line that shows you didn’t even read my comment.

  • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

    Most of these shows have a very short life, because they become so tiresome and boring it’s unbearable to continue watching these idiotic characters.

    But, it’s also about more than that with these characters. As someone else put it, they were probably easy to laugh at in the beginning, showing how backward people are and giving others a good feeling about themselves.

    When the ranting started it forced people to recognize the reality of these delusional backward people too. They were no longer just funny people to laugh at, they held delusional beliefs and opinions about others that were directly opposed to their own attitudes. They stopped being funny, they just became bigots.

    It’s also great to see that all the ranting of support from the Right Wing in the US led to nothing too. This show will be cancelled despite all those Christian fanatics claiming they would support it just because of the attitudes expressed by these people. Clearly, their “support” of this family didn’t last long, just as support for that Chicken restaurant didn’t last, and the “boycott” of Mozilla won’t either ;)

    • Philip Bou

      How do you know your not the Ass backward person !

      • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

        1. A person who believes that they are superior to others, can inflict their religious beliefs onto others and attacks others with selected extracts from a book while ignoring all the other edicts that they find inconvenient

        2. A person who demands the right to live life without obeying the religious beliefs of other people, and refuses to accept that some have the right to control free individuals because they selectively choose what to preach from a book of fairy stories.

        Anyone can see which of these is the backward idiot.
        Sorry, edited to add that any SANE and RATIONAL person can see which is the backward person out of the two.

    • Thunder Struck

      Bloke , you obviously only know what you read on post and blogs about the US when you state.” Clearly, their “support” of this family didn’t last long, just as support for that Chicken restaurant didn’t last,” That particular “restaurant” continues to be one of the most successful restaurants in our country. As for the comment that “Christians” aren’t supporting DD as they said they would, we only only protesting the A&E network for suspending Phil. We are wanting to see another network pick them up after their current contract expires. I would like for you to give me your definition of “backwards” as you referred to the DD family. And also tell me what made them all bigots?

      • Tim Krikau

        That particular restaurant walked their comments back in a big way:

        http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2014/03/19/chick-fil-a-ceo-cathy-gay-marriage-still-wrong-but-ill-shut-up-about-it-and-sell-chicken/

        The dollar trumps God every time…

        • Thunder Struck

          This was also a quote made by the Junior Cathy. Remember Sr. is the one that made the stand, but he is in his 90′s now.

          “I think the time of truths and principles are captured and codified in God’s word and I’m just personally committed to that,” he said. “I know others feel very different from that and I respect their opinion and I hope that they would be respectful of mine.”

          • Tim Krikau

            How does that matter? Whoever said it, said in a representative fashion of the company. Could be Sr., could be Jr…..could be a store manager Doesn’t matter…the outcome would have been the same.

          • Thunder Struck

            The outcome would have been different. Don’t you realize that the day the LGBT boycotted them was there best day of sales for the year in most locations.

          • Derek McIntyre

            Homophobic, KKKbigot, go back to the 1860′s where you belong!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Yesh U R

            Their, the word you need to use is their.

          • Tim Krikau

            What are you talking about? The outcome I’m referring to is the main gist of the article – the Cathys walking back their statements and admitting they made a mistake.

            Just because there was a spike in sales for one day because of the LGBT boycott doesn’t mean that’s a sound long-term business strategy.

            From the article, that you apparently didn’t read:
            —————————————————————-
            Almost two years later, Dan Cathy — a self-described evangelical Christian — says he made a mistake.

            In a rare and wide-ranging interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cathy admitted his anti-equality stance probably wasn’t a wise business decision, regretting “making the company a symbol in the marriage debate”:

            “Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by (recognizing) the mistakes that you make,” Cathy said. “And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you’re just a fool. I’m thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it.”

            Cathy agreed that the “lingering identity” of Chick-fil-A with “anti-gay groups” that jumped to its defense in 2012 has meant “alienating market segments”:

            “Consumers want to do business with brands that they can interface with, that they can relate with,” Cathy said. “And it’s probably very wise from our standpoint to make sure that we present our brand in a compelling way that the consumer can relate to.”

            ——————————————————————–

            So all the anti-gay folks rallied for a few days to support Chick-Fil-A…and spent their money there. That’s a “shot-in-the-arm” for business…but like I said, it’s hard to expand your market if you have the reputation for aligning yourself with a social opinion that is rapidly becoming more and more unpopular. The real money lies in expansion and growth and the future revenue to be gained is much more substantial than a one-time sales spike. Quite frankly, the demographic of the anti-gay crowd is getting older and have less spending power..the younger set have no issue with gay marriage and are turned off by those that do. They’re the ones who will have the spending power in the next 20 years…and those are the people that businesses are trying to reach.

            So what’s worth more? One day’s worth of sales from an anti-gay group that can’t afford to eat there regularly…or 20 years worth of sales from younger folks who can?

            It’s a no-brainer and a basic business principle…that in my NSHO, everybody should know by at least 12th grade.

            The Cathys did the right thing in this article…very smart. They didn’t change their beliefs any…but from a business standpoint, they decided to stay out of politics and put their focus on what they do best – good food service.

      • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

        The restaurant in question had to reverse the damage they did with public statements because they were hemorrhaging support. There was a fanatical right wing outpouring that lasted for about four or five days, then they realized that they had significantly dented their profits and risked a failure of their company. This is something they are still facing and fighting against by the way, they still haven’t gained their previous customer base back while the right wing have moved on to another crusade.

        As someone else has said, money trumps God every time.

        My definition of “backward” is a person who follows the preaching of a book, rejecting modern society, science, reality and education in favor of their religious delusions. It’s no different to someone living their life according to Harry Potter, refusing the reality around them in favor of selectively preaching the things they want to use to control and inflict their will on others.

    Yahoo is digging DEEP for their daily Gay story, if they have to resort to “Pink News”…..
    Maybe, just maybe the rest af America is tired of hearing the Gay intolerance of others finally…..

    • Yesh U R

      What America and the rest of rational thinking humanity is very tired of is delusional thinkers such as your dear self who keep trying to make as many people as mad as they are.

  • michael

    Ok, you have no definate reason for the cancellation, but you put out to the web your idea as to why. So what does that do for your reputation. Is that like making a judgemental statement without getting the facts, and base a story on what someone else said. sad sad sad when you join their side Pink.

  • A. Marti

    The show is on life support. It’s just about done.

  • frito

    what makes him homophobic? because he called it a sin?

    • Mac

      You’re right. Perhaps you’d prefer the term “idiot”?

  • Whizzer

    I wish they would put Pinky AND THE BRAIN back on television.

  • The Carnivore

    Pink News: Europe’s Largest Gay News Network
    It is hilarious that Yahoo had to link to this site in Europe to find its daily pro-gay story. Fear not – the Robertson clan is doing just fine.

  • Chrisboi2010

    That’s Missouri for you!! We have a lot of support here in the show me state!!

  • disqus_07tSt10o1I

    So I guess that if I believe that there is a purpose to the sexual act that is in no way fulfilled by homosexuals that makes me ‘homophobic, huh? HAHAHAHA!!!

    • Paul Bass

      No, I guess it means you are a bigot.

      What about infertile couples? They don’t have a right to “the sexual act”? What about post menopausal women, they too don’t fulfill your “purpose to the sexual act”, so they shouldn’t be having sex either? Yep, I think it means you are a bigot, but would deny it…

      • disqus_07tSt10o1I

        Unity is also a purpose of the marital act. Even an infertile heterosexual couple fulfills the purpose of their bodies when they couple, we are MADE to pair with a member of the opposite sex. What purpose is served in homosexual sex, other than depraved appetite?

        • Paul Bass

          Yep, your bigotry is truly showing. If calling an entire group of people “depraved” isn’t the sign of a bigot, I don’t know what is!
          OK, fine, they are “depraved” I guess that includes the vet that went to WAR FOR YOU, the Cop who protects YOU, the Nurse who cleans up after YOU, they are all “depraved”
          .
          Fine, DON’T MARRY THEM! But what gives you the RIGHT to say who they marry, love, have children with, and yes, “pair” with? Again, please grow up and join the 21st century.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            I didn’t condemn any person as depraved, rather the act of homosexual sex. Why get angry with me for speaking an obvious truth? Again, I am no bigot, I just recognize the meaning and purpose of sexuality, and it AIN’T fulfilled outside of married, heterosexual sex. Have a nice day!

          • Paul Bass

            Bigots ALWAYS say they are not bigots. (“I’m not a bigot, THOSE people are just bad” {because of their ‘acts’] ).

            It is only an “obvious truth” to religious bigots. YOU believe it, NOT US!
            YOUR “purpose of sexuality”, procreation and “unity”, I’ve addressed earlier, and are just that YOURS, not OURS!

            Please stop being so patronizing, your opinions are NOT those of the majority of Americans.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            Even if my views are no LONGER in the majority, does that mean I no longer have a right to voice my ‘opinion’?

          • Paul Bass

            Yes, of course you have the right! But it still shows your bigotry.

            BTW, it is no LONGER majority view to own slaves or subjugate women,minorities and the disabled. And I would consider you a bigot in those instances also. I’m old enough to remember many hateful words for those who are different, but we all are capable of change. You have a great day.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            Yeah, and guess who fought to end slavery? The REPUBLICANS. Guess who fought to allow minorities and women the right to vote? The REPUBLICANS. So yes, our government has made some good realizations, and now are making some NOT SO GOOD decisions. I don’t blindly follow what the men and women of our government say is good/evil. I make up my own mind.

          • Tim Krikau

            You’re assuming that the Republican Party from the 1860s is the same Republican Party today. It’s not true…the roles have reversed. Lincoln’s Party was progressive and champions of social change (liberal) whereas the Democrats made the failed attempt to preserve the status quo (conservative). A complete reversal.

            Think I’m wrong? Just look at the historical record…that speaks for itself.

    • Yesh U R

      No it just makes you stupid.

      • disqus_07tSt10o1I

        Oh, you are FUNNY…so by your estimation thinking that marriage and sexuality have no purpose is SMART…HAHAHAHAHA!!!

        • Yesh U R

          Your ranting delusional diatribe proves that you are so twisted by hate that you are incapable of reason. You are a stunted human being that has been hobbled by a system of control you seem to be incapable of changing, you deserve pity.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            Please ‘reason’ with me about why you think that homosexual sex/marriage is a good thing. Thanks.

          • Yesh U R

            It would be more useful to attempt to reason with an inanimate object than to try to reason with mind that “believes” in the fires of hell, sin, the literal word of the bible etc. You are so far from the ability to reason as to make any attempt to do so utterly worthless. You boys and girls are so tiresome always the one note song.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            At least be honest with yourself and the other posters and just admit ‘I believe in gay marriage because I’m a sheep of the government, and its ‘cool’ right now…’.

          • Yesh U R

            Dear little lamb of god don’t you have a prayer meeting you could go to so you can tell Jesus how much you love him and want his big strong arms around you?

            HAHAHAHA!!! For the record, Jesus is the lamb of God, not me…

          • Yesh U R

            The laugh is on you my dear little wool brained chump. There is no god, and Jesus is a Roman fiction. So any chance of you coming out of that closet you are hiding in anytime this year?

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            Sorry to disappoint you, I’m in no closet and this @$$ is exit only…

          • Yesh U R

            You couldn’t possibly disappoint me I expected you to be a moron and you have proved that you are one. However, only closet cases turn up on Gay sites to do the Jesus is my lord routine, so pass the word we really enjoy giving you chumps the runaround. You really are a closet gay and from now on every time you look at yourself in a mirror remember that, and we know it too.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            You’ve contributed some great thoughts to this conversation haven’t you? (Shaking my head)…

          • Yesh U R

            I have indeed but you are a brainwashed chump so it is bouncing off that thick skull of yours. FYI it isn’t possible to have a conversation with people of your persuasion because you are mental slaves to a belief system that only idiots can swallow.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            You show your mental prowess with every verbal slight. You’ll never know since you’ve respectfully declined my invitation to a reasoned discussion.

          • Yesh U R

            What I have done since I engaged with you is hold a mirror up to you. I have insulted you, provoked you, and tried my best to offend you. Why? The fact that you think you can turn up here and write the things you have written and then sit back and say you have invited a reasoned discussion is jaw-dropping in the magnitude of your lack of manners and insight. Let me explain it for you in words even you will understand. You are a bigot, a homophobe and a religious delusional and you are in all probability also a closet gay. Yet you present yourself on a site for LGBT people and without a moments consideration let lose your prejudices, your offensive and baseless stupidities and your insults and think that is acceptable. It is not, it is ill mannered, and it is not appropriate. We will not be respectful of your beliefs nor will we take your bigotry and fail to respond appropriately in the face of it. Understand you may hold any opinion, belief or thought you chose. However if you decide to come to a site such as this one and play the christian bigot you will be dealt with as you deserve. Here endeth the lesson.

            Now you’re using Old English? Cute. I accessed this article on Yahoo; its for PEOPLE, not HOMOSEXUAL people. I have a right to make comments, and have. All readers here will note that you, not I, (the straight one) have engaged in derogatory language use. Way to show the true colors of your brand of people. Have a nice day.

          • Yesh U R

            You my sweet are about as straight as the Yellow Brick Road. Go and learn manners and insight if you can, but do us and you a large favor, don’t come back.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            LMAO! You guys have pretty much confirmed the typical perspective of most ‘strait arrows’ toward you: hateful and vindictive. Note that I have not brought up religious belief, that was you. I simply asserted some logical arguments about the design of our bodies that suggested an intended use that was not embraced by homosexuals. I do not hate you, you are my brothers and sisters. Rather, I think there is a better life possible for you that the one you’ve embraced. Have a nice day.

          • Yesh U R

            Your stupidity knows no bounds. I give you a quote it is one of your own “What purpose is served in homosexual sex, other than depraved appetite?” That is a moral judgement based only upon a religious belief and please do believe me when I tell you this, should you have been a brother of mine I would have insisted that you be put up for adoption, to a family in a far away country. Your arrogance is breathtaking you think “there is a better life possible that the one you’ve embraced” You are an unmitigated toss-pot, now really, do sod off.

          • Tim Krikau

            Dude…you need to pay more attention…this isn’t Yahoo.

            This is PinkNews – Europe’s Largest Gay News Site – says so right at the top of the page. The link, which is right there on top of your browser/tablet/phone – says: http://www.pinknews.co.uk — the “uk” indicates that it’s a British website.

            Yahoo just put the link on their homepage….they didn’t create this site.

            So…when somebody like Yesh U R tells you to “sod off” — that’s not Old English….that’s British English…and it’s a common colloquialism used in that country today. Whereas, I, being an American…am less refined, and would make a pithy comment like, “F–k off”

            Also, you are commenting on a site, like I mentioned above, that is directed towards a market audience comprised of mostly homosexual men and woman. So when you come on here express your anti-gay opinions….what did you think was going to happen? Yeah the site is for all people to access, but it is designed for a gay audience.

            If you didn’t know this was a gay website…that’s one thing….but you’ve been posting for nigh unto 3 days now….you haven’t figured it out yet?

            What you’re doing here is about the same thing as a neo-Nazi going into a Holocaust museum and shout out anti-Semitic slurs, and are then surprised when people come out of the woodwork to kick his ass.

            Know your surroundings before you speak. You are the recipient of derogatory comments, because quite frankly….you deserve it.

          • Yesh U R

            Thank you for that post I appreciate the support.

          • Tim Krikau

            i should also state that “Here Endeth the Lesson” is phrase that also used quite frankly as a conversation closer. It can derived from Sean Connery in “The Untouchables” where would always end his advice to Kevin Costner with that phrase.

            Once again….you’re quick to criticize with very little knowledge of the language.

            Your overall ignorance and lack of observational skills have only made your opinions look worse.

            Best to quit now…before you dig yourself into an even deeper hole.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            Are you 12???

          • Yesh U R

            No, but that is the meridian level of intellectual achievement of people like you (religious brainwashed delusionals) so, it is necessary to filter it down to your level of comprehension.

          • Tim Krikau

            I believe in gay marriage because I believe that ALL Americans should have the same access to rights and privileges.

            -To believe anything else is totally un-American.

            I believe in gay marriage because so far, the religious right has yet to provide solid, measurable, empirical proof that gay marriage will cause irreparable harm to this country.

            - I’ll answer this one for you – DON’T BOTHER TRYING…because no harm will come for you.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            The irreparable harm comes when the institution of marriage, the first building block of society, is dismantled completely. Strong marriages make for a strong society, strong families make for a strong country. When marriage is destroyed (lets be honest, that’s the true goal) society falls with it. ‘Every man/man for himself’ is NOT a good community builder.

          • Tim Krikau

            What rock do you live under? The current divorce rate in this country among straight marriages is just over 50%. You cannot possibly make the statement that the destruction of marriage is a goal on the gay agenda…not when the straights have done a bang-up job screwing up the institution already beyond repair.

            Divorce due to infidelity, abuse, marriages of inconvenience that are no longer needed, irreconcilable differences, the concept of the “starter marriage” that is in today’s lexicon (which already indicates that marriage is no longer a “permanent” endeavor) ..the list goes on….all of which are on the shoulders of the heterosexuals, NOT the gays. If you’re looking for the root cause – well…the call is coming from inside the house.

            Want to fix the institution of marriage? Focus on how bad the straights have managed to f–k it up and fix it.

            With that…I am still waiting to see how gay marriage can cause harm to our society…since traditional marriage is such a g—–m mess, the only reason the divorce rates haven’t gotten much higher is because less people are getting married.

            Don’t blame that on the gays…that’s on the straights.

            So try again…

          • Yesh U R

            Can anyone sane not read that post and seriously dispute that disqus is not a delusional parroting utter nonsense? As I have said many times before on this site in the face of individuals such as this one, they find it impossible to comprehend that they don’t have the right to judge and control how you or I our live our life. So they weave strands of utter madness around their own fears and self loathings. They have no insight at all at the bare-faced effrontery of coming to this site and doing what they do, absolutely none at all. Quite shameful really.

          • disqus_07tSt10o1I

            I get it, so because I disagree with you I’M ‘NOT WELCOME HERE’…funny! Buddy, no one is discriminating against you, we just want to know what makes you tick, that’s all. A casual read of the posts will reveal that you, not I, am the foaming at the mouth deranged lunatic. Have a nice day.

          • Yesh U R

            1. You are a bare faced liar you didn’t come to this site to find out what makes me or anyone else here tick. You have already closed your mind and you don’t give a rats ass what or who we are. You want to be superior and dominant and it royally pisses you and your kind off that we are not going to let you be either.
            2. We have read your posts and you are delusional. Your comments are bigotry in content and exposition.
            3. But you are discriminating against me because you think you have the right to find me less than you are and guess what? I am your equal in all things under the law, get used to it because this is yours and my future.
            4. Do you think we haven’t read every possible variation of your religious indoctrination expressed in every possible way? Under all the verbiage is a toxic mixture of hate and insufferable religious based nonsense.
            5. You have nothing new to offer but the same old crap we have read and heard for decades.
            6. Try to understand that we are not interested in your tired and threadbare religious nonsense. Keep your nose out of other people’s lives and sod off and live your own.

  • Justsayin…….

    Homosexual acts are immoral and sinful.

    • Paul Bass

      Go back to the 19th century you religious hater. Do you think Jesus actually said gays are any more immoral or sinful then straights?

      Get a clue and read your Bible a little closer. Jesus said “Love one another” and “Love your enemy” (although why gays are your enemy I don’t understand).

      • Thunder Struck

        This is also in the Bible now that you mentioned it.

        You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (NKJ, Leviticus 18:22)

        If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)

        • Tim Krikau

          James 4:12 (NIV) There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you–who are you to judge your neighbor?

          In other words…you can quote Leviticus all you want…but if you look at some of the other sins listed in that book – no tattos, no eating shrimp, don’t cut your hair or trim your beard in a certain fashion…that whole gay argument loses a bunch of steam.

          Worse – it also means you’re cherry picking from the Bible to put forth your opinions. Which means…

          You’re being selective…and there’s another word for that…discriminating. Which goes back to James 4:12….essentially it’s God’s problem, not yours…

          • Thunder Struck

            I understand your concept of cherry picking scripture however there is quite a bit of emphasis placed on Homosexuality in the bible. In my opinion moreso than most other sins.

            1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV / 13 helpful votes

            Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

          • Jared

            So you accept that it’s okay to ignore all the inconvenient statements/instructions in the Bible?

            Along with your belief in the Bible’s homophobia, it also instructs:

            Victims of rape must marry their rapist.
            Men can sell their daughters.
            You can take slaves from other nations.

            It also tells you that you cannot wear clothes woven from more than one cloth, that you cannot eat shellfish, that you must not cut the hair of your temples, that women should obey men, that women should be rejected from society when menstruating…

            You people like to pick and choose what you want to follow from your book of nonsense, funny that it’s the thing that gives you a sense of control over others that you stick to, knowing that preaching all the rest would make you nothing but a cult following extremist.

          • Thunder Struck

            If you had read the entire Bible instead of trying to justify what you deem as wrong or right you would understand that the “laws of the land” changed over the course of the Bible. But the Laws of the land were to be followed at all times And no i do not care to control you or anyone else i am simply stating my point of view.

          • Tim Krikau

            But you’re doing the same thing, aren’t you? For every passage that says X, there’s a passage that can either indirectly or directly contradict X.

            People have used the Bible to justify slaver and to justify abolition….to justify the subjugation of women and to give them rights….to justify Jim Crow laws.

            Which is why the Bible is OK for religion, which people are free to believe (or not believe), but should NOT be used to dictate the laws of the land where Christianity ISN’T the official religion. Nor should it ever be.

            If you adhere to the teachings of the Bible..that’s your prerogative….but expecting everybody else to do the same is theocratic, not democratic.

            Ultimately…the POINT is this…unless you can prove to me the harm in gay marriage…and not religious punishment that may or may not happen….SHOW how gay marriage will have a negative effect on your day-to-day existence?

            I attended a gay wedding two weeks ago…I went to ceremony, attended the reception, drank too much….woke up with a hangover…and then went back to work the following Monday. Outside of that…my life has not changed at all.

            Are you that weak in your faith…that somehow two gay people are going to destroy what you believe in? That says more about you than gay people.

          • Yesh U R

            Laws of the land are changing yet again and your pack of delusional yapping dogs are howling at the moon.

          • Yesh U R

            You are a barefaced liar though aren’t you? “And no I do not care to control you or anyone else”. The very core of christian political thought is the domination of anyone who is in disagreement with it. It has a long and bloody history of murder, torture and oppression of free thinkers. If you had an understanding of the meaning of the word equality you would not be on this site spewing your indoctrination. We know you for what you are and we know your book of childish magic for what that is too..

          • Yesh U R

            No swindlers eh? So that’s the mega-church crews and the mormons out in the cold.

          • Sonya Costa

            We are also supposed to go forth and teach what the bible says. So when someone tells you the bible says homosexuality is wrong (because someone asked the question) it is not judging.

          • Tim Krikau

            Fair enough…but how do you do that without contradicting 1 Timothy 2:12? If you’re going to adhere to the Bible and its teachings, Sonya…you, as a woman, shouldn’t be posting to this comment thread at all. According to that…you’re outta line, sister.

            For the record: Not allowing women to speak on Biblical matters is ridiculous…but my point remains the same, you can’t cherry pick certain passages and disregard the others.

            This is America…and you have any right to say what you’re saying. You aren’t going to get arrested, fined, or imprisoned for your statements/beliefs – that’s free speech and freedom of religion…

            BUT…

            That doesn’t mean that I have to accept what you’re saying. As an American, it is my right to disagree with you, to debate with you on the matter, and to not be religious at all. Most atheists and agnostics came from strong religious backgrounds – I’m one of them…I rejected religion and became agnostic BECAUSE I read the Bible…not because I never looked at it. Too many contradictions and inconsistencies to make it reliable.

            If you want to believe it, that’s your prerogative…but keep in mind that in this country…the Bible is NOT the law of the land. The Constitution is…and….THIS IS KEY – the Constitution allows you to have a Bible…not the other way around. You would do well to keep that in mind.

          • Sonya Costa

            If you would read further, after Jesus Christ died it done away with the law of mosses which is where the things like no short hair, no eating shellfish, etc. were done away with. God’s commandments are still in effect. Yes we do not have to agree and are free to debate. Let me say that I appreciate that you are debating with me with respect.

          • Tim Krikau

            Debates like this in any forum are very important and need to be done more often. Name calling and trolling accomplishes nothing. Like I said, I had a strong religious upbringing in my youth and I still have family and friends who are fervent in their faith. I might not agree with them…but that doesn’t make them stupid, ignorant, or naive just because I no longer believe as they do.

            Disrespecting others for their own beliefs is a huge part of the problem today. I might not agree with your beliefs, but I do respect the way in which you present your arguments. They are thoughtful, direct, and (since I’ve read the Bible a few times in its entirety) well cited. One can’t ask for much more in an opposing viewpoint! :)

            One more thing to add…and then I really have get to work…

            If the Laws of Moses were eradicated…doesn’t that apply to the gay marriage passages in Leviticus as well?

          • Yesh U R

            No Sonya you are supposed, if not positively obligated to think for yourself. That means getting an education that has opened your mind to the infinite possibilities of human experience. What you are doing is judging, but it is judgement based upon nonsense and hate and that is the entire reason why rational thinkers are now rejecting “bible” based prejudice. If you are older than ten years old you should be ashamed of yourself for holding such delusional ideas.

        • Paul Bass

          Read YOUR bible a little closer, there are DOZENS of citations against “fornication” (heterosexuals) vs. these two always cited. YOUR bible also says I should have slaves and many wives, so is that your stance? Please grow up.

    He’s not homophobic…..he just doesn’t agree with the lifestyle. Its against his religious views. Why is everybody else’s views protected except those of Christians? The event was going to happen on my birthday….I would have love to have gone!

    • Yesh U R

      “Lifestyle”? LGBT are as diverse as humans can be, I am left handed do I have a left-handed lifestyle?
      “It’s against his religious views”. So? Who appointed him spokesperson for the ignorant masses?
      “Why is everybody else’s views protected except those of Christian’s (you need the apostrophe of possession in christians). Nobody’s views are any more or less protected. What you object to I think is that the objectionable speech and behavior of Christian fundamentalists is now generally recognized as delusional, hateful, and entirely unacceptable in an inclusive society. You are free to be as delusional as you want to be, but you are no longer empowered to insist or force anyone to subscribe to them. Easy isn’t it? PS. Happy Birthday.

      • Sonya Costa

        Nobody appointed him spokesperson. They guy doing the interview asked him about his views on homosexuality and he answered him. Thanks for proving my point that everyone can have an opinion as long as it goes along with the liberalist views. And just because Christian fundamentalist are viewed the way you speak of does not mean they are any less right. Some people don’t like the truth.

        • Yesh U R

          In order to have a point proven you do need to make a point firstly. You are not making points like the phony “red-neck” businessman under discussion you are attempting to mask your proselytising as “an opinion”. Fundamentalists are in the main predictable in their profound inability to make rational argument because of course the irrationality of the beliefs that have stunted them make it almost impossible for them to do so. I love the truth, I have spent my life in the service of it. The bible is not truth, the new testament is not the history of a once living person, it is the work of fiction substantially written by a member of the Flavian ruling family; Flavius Josephus (orignally Josephus Bar Matthias (37-100 CE). Christian fundamentalist’s are not less right, they are entirely wrong.

          • Sonya Costa

            I feel sorry for you. I pray that one day someone comes along and open your eyes….and I mean this from the bottom of my heart. If you keep walking down the road your on its going to end in fire. Beware of false prophets. They will lead you like a lamb to the slaughter. Prayers for you.

            No Sonya you won’t, and there is the point you keep missing by a mile. For you the biblical fires of hell are real, and you fear an eternity of pain for contravention of the edicts of the many variations of the ‘bible’. For those of us who can reason for ourselves that way of living is madness. Keep your madness if it makes you feel less afraid. Keep it to yourself and the others with the same delusions and you will be fine.

  • kenthomes

    Everyone, please quit feeding this thunderstruck troll!! He is obviously a Christian fundamentalist nut job! Just ignore him. The other thing I wanted to say is that hate speech is not free speech. Any speech which denigrates fellow citizens to the point of advocating violence, because that is where this usually ends is hate speech and should be outlawed! Everyone should be allowed to have their difference of opinion, but when your difference of opinion is about keeping other fellow citizens as third class citizens, it should not be allowed. I believe the UK has done well in this regard.
