  • The whole thing blew up in his face because he gave somebody a straight answer about a personal opinion, wich everybody has a right to. Or at least we all used to in this country, maybe that's changing.

    He is a public figure, everything he says/does is scrutinized, he knows this and chose to say that shit anyway. He did it for the publicity, there is nothing to feel sorry for him for. His rights weren't taken away, he got to say what he felt, but there are consequences for your actions.

    The whole thing is bullshit. Didn't watch the show before, sure as hell won't now.

  • You know, I always kind of felt sorry for the guy, unpopular as that might make me. I completely disagree with his opinions, I swear I do. But the thing is, He didn't stand on a street corner or a pulpit and shout them at anyone. He didn't get in anybody's face. He gave his thoughts when he was asked a direct question in an interview; perhaps he should have said, "No comment" and left it at that, but he didn't. The whole thing blew up in his face because he gave somebody a straight answer about a personal opinion, wich everybody has a right to. Or at least we all used to in this country, maybe that's changing.

  • Makes you think what they think of their brand that they don't mind an open racist representing them. Maybe their next show can follow a Southern Baptist church that bans interracial marriages.

  • The whole thing was just a publicity ploy and every person who wrote about it on the internet, either fore or against, played right into their plan...

  • I wouldn't be surprised if they produced a reality show about the Westboro Baptist "Church"

    WBC has let documentary and news crews in before, they'd probably jump at the offer.

    He still has his right to state his opinion. Nothings changing. We've all had our opinions scrutinized or blown up in our face. Oh boohoo mr racist said something gross and people didnt like it.

    Actually he did, repeatedly. You can find recordings of his sermons out there, some quotes have even been posted here.
