Why does the Arts and Entertainment Television Network feel that the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights don’t pertain to their employees? As far as I know, President Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have not yet abolished Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion, although I may be wrong.

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson has every right to express his opinions and religious beliefs. He is not an ignorant hillbilly. He graduated from the Louisiana Technical University with a BA in Physical Education and a Masters in Education. He has every “right” to express his views on homosexuality, lesbianism and race in America in a magazine article or anyplace else as long as he does not do it on his employer’s series. To Mr. Robertson the Bible is not just any old “book” but Holy Scripture. He has the same exact religious beliefs that our Founding Fathers had when they signed the Declaration of Independence (a third were slave owners; Thomas Jefferson owned 150 Slaves himself). Almost half of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention were slave owners. 99.999 percent of our Founding Fathers held the same religious beliefs regarding homosexuality and lesbianism as Phil Robertson. When did “political correctness” become an “unalienable right” guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?

Billions of people around the world believe that the Bible’s “fundamental truths” were revealed by God Himself. Catholicism, Mormonism, Islam, Judaism, many Protestant Churches and the Orthodox Churches all hold the same beliefs as Mr. Robertson regarding homosexual and lesbian acts. The Arts and Entertainment Television Network doesn’t seem to mind offending the religious beliefs of billions of people as long as they don’t offend the “LGBT” Community of about 500,000 to 1 million — now if that isn’t Liberal/Progressive insane political correctness, I don’t know what is.

P.S.: I heard the commentators on CNN and MSNBC referring to Mr. Robertson’s “Jim Crow remarks.” Can PBS be far behind?
