Ooooh!!! Gay TMZ founder slams GLAAD: They preach tolerance but they won’t tolerate Phil Robertson’s religious beliefs

Gay TMZ founder and Executive Producer Harvey Levin disagrees with A&E ‘punishing’ Phil Robertson for his religious beliefs, especially when they already knew about his beliefs. He points out, though, that one of the contributing factors to A&E firing Robertson was big pressure they were getting from GLAAD. He’ll have more on his website in the morning about that, he said.

He says the irony is that GLAAD preaches tolerance, arguing that people have to accept them even though they are different. But he says the same argument can be made for Robertson, that they must accept him as well even though he is different from them.

Levin says he is gay and doesn’t agree with Robertson, but given that this country is all about freedom of religion and freedom of speech, he believes Robertson is entitled to his opinion and shouldn’t be punished for it.

Jill was trying to be funny and I assume personify a valley girl, dumb blonde response to this, or that's how it came across. Love her to pieces, but that context doesn't fit this scenario.

I am gonna say it and I am not a groupie fan of the show but I think gladd went to far. It's what the man believes so the hell what he made it known. There have been gays who have said some foul things " as a joke" and there are lots of issues in the gay community that need to be addressed in general. I just feel like gladd needs to clean up their own issues before focusing on what this man said. I am speaking as some one who was apart of the movement of gay marriage in mass. I just feel like there is so much more for gladd to worry about then this old man

They went after him. Period. They didn't like what he had to say or his opinions based on his faith after being asked a pointed question they already knew the answers to and decided to make him an example.
