I think my husbands family is going to unfriend because of Duck Dynasty...
I just can't keep my mouth shut when I see so many people go on and on about how much they support Phil, how he was only quoting from the bible, everyone is attacking Christianity, where's free speech? Yada, yada, yada.
So I broke dowm and commented this on my Bil's post
I understand where you're coming from but I just wanted to add two things. One, while Phil does have freedom of speech, A&E are his employers, not the government, and have the right to suspend him for breach of contract, not representing their company in they way they would like or really any reason they choose. Two, it says a lot of things in Leviticus, a couple off the top of my head is not having long hair and getting tattoos... Phil's hair is pretty darn long,lol. But the most important thing to keep in mind is the man who's word really matters here, Jesus Christ, said Nothing about homosexuality. People need to stop cherry picking from the OT and focus on Jesus's actual teachings.
Edit: It's Corithains 11:14. Leviticus mentions not trimming your beard or temples.
