She emailed me to say she is outraged at A&E for the hypocrisy here, for the things that they air on their program that she finds offensive, yet A&E doesn't fire a star or somebody involved in their programming based on what they said but they would when it comes to Phil on Duck Dynasty and this friend, she said that she would boycott A&E and that network, and uh, um, she's not the only one

Anyone want to try parsing this word salad for me?

Oh and speaking of hypocrisy, you know who else got fired for things they said?

Sarah didn't seem too upset about that one.

2013-12-28 12:35:02 AM
she is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn't a choice that I have made

Did your gay friend tell you that her sexuality was a choice that she made, Sarah? Yeah, I didn't think so. You don't have a gay friend, you met a lesbian once 30 years ago and have been making shiat up about her to serve your own rhetoric ever since.

fusillade762: Anyone want to try parsing this word salad for me?


No. Sarah Palin has discovered that she doesn't have to actually say anything, she just needs to string together words long enough for whoever's "interviewing" her to nod and it'll be taken as something uttered in English that deserves consideration by someone with a central nervous system. She realizes that she doesn't need to actually use  language anymore.

I had a black friend for a while, he was pissed off too.  I really used to enjoy calling him up to ask about whatever new thing the blacks were up to at the time.  Like: "Hey Marquillis (he said his name was just Mark because he was embarrassed about his real black name, so I just guessed a new name every time I called) what are you guys up to with this twerking thing?  You've whored up Hannah Montana!"  We were good friends, but he had a lot of anger and eventually stopped talking to me.  I mean, he was one of the good ones and it makes me wonder if there really is no hope for us and them to ever get along.

fusillade762: Anyone want to try parsing this word salad for me?


Palin's gay friend is deeply offended by A&E's hypocrisy in refusing to fire any other reality-show start for 'offensive' speech.  No gay-friend comment about A&E dumping Dog the Bounty Hunter after he went all Mel Gibson about Jews and not one Christian stood up to defend the Jews -OR- free speech, and Dog was brought back to resume taping a while later.  Also no gay-friend comment about Dixie Chicks being erased from country music overnight when Christians sploded radio station phone lines with cries of 'traitor!!' and 'it's un-American to criticize President Bush!!'

Palin's gay friend is deeply offended by public speech condemning Duckblower's gentle humble spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ.  But when it comes to preaching that gays are heartless, faithless, senseless, ruthless, America-destroying, family-killing, goat-farking plotters of evil, gay-friend is all totes McGotes.

Sarah Palin's gay friend is just Sarah Palin speaking her own opinion in third-person gay.

GreatGlavinsGhost: It's Greta Van Susterin, or however that guy spells his name.


Sarah Palin does seem to give Greta a massive lady boner so you may well have something there.

After reading Palin's latest word salad juxtaposed alongside crazy Unka Phil's incoherent GQ rant in TFA I can at least take some solace in the fact that the pair of them never met up early on and had kids together.

Small blessings, all that.

I'll give Sarah Palin one thing... She has managed to get people to listen to her incessant squawking for much longer than they should have. I'm not sure if it is the vapid willful ignorance or the grossly obvious attempts at pandering, but she sure does manage to turn up the noise in just the right way so she can get some attention.

Meh.. she's like Rush or Stern. People listen to them to be outraged. It's like riding a roller coaster or watching somebody slip on ice. Sarah says something stupid and lefties like to pretend that they're offended, but they're secretly happy she's so farking stupid and a figurehead of the retarded right, and then people on the right like to prop her up because they think she really gets under the skin of those marxists on the left, but that's only because they're too stupid to realize how meta it all really is.

In the end though, Sarah gets paid, and the more stupid situations she injects herself into, the more she gets paid. Much like Jessie Jackson, Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian.

Gyrfalcon: Bucky Katt: Bloody William: fusillade762: Anyone want to try parsing this word salad for me?

No. Sarah Palin has discovered that she doesn't have to actually say anything, she just needs to string together words long enough for whoever's "interviewing" her to nod and it'll be taken as something uttered in English that deserves consideration by someone with a central nervous system. She realizes that she doesn't need to actually use  language anymore.

That's the best explanation I've seen thus far.

Except for the "discovered" part. Palin  never actually "discovered" anything in her life.


So... you're saying that Sarah Palin's prominence in American society is due to the Clever Hans effect?

If you want to read the lesbian equivalent to that guy "shooting starbursts into a crusty sock," Camille Paglia's totally obvious dyke-crush on Sarah Palin is ridiculous.

She even PRAISES Sarah Palin's innate ability to slaughter the English language:

"She uses language with the jumps, breaks and rippling momentum of a be-bop saxophonist."


Camille Paglia is tiresome. I'm pretty sure she just takes whatever position is directly opposite what the liberal establishment happens to think. Of course that means praising Sarah Palin, what would get her more attention?

/pretty sure the only reason Paglia hasn't married a guy for attention whoring purposes is because nobody wants her

As for the name, would you feed somebody of your acquaintance to the kind of howling mob that goes after even Democrats who violate the liberal speech code? People who feel it's appropriate to threaten you with rape and/or death and to hound you out of your job and destroy your career and life for tweeting, "I hope I don't get aids.

A friend of mine somehow still believes that all homosexual men are limp-wristed, high pitched voice nancy-boys.  Maybe referring to this person as "she" is how the family makes fun of him behind his back.

I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'-not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues." --A&E star Phil Robertson

Ahhh. The old "There were poor white people, so segregation and the racism that black people face doesn't matter and is irrelevant." argument.

Firstly, Sarah Palin is a hack even amongst hack politicians. This is an amateur political move. She knows bigotry against homosexuals is wrong and needs a cover to defend her viewpoint. This "friend" is political cover for when she and her army of Ayn Rand cultist stooges finally get called out for what they are which is to say anti-American, anti-liberty, pro-Big Government bigots. This "friend" is there to somehow show the world that she was never actually a bigot, she was just simply listening to the one homosexual "friend" that she knew to inform her viewpoint which may or may not be now actually considered a bigoted, because really it was never her viewpoint it belonged to her "friend".

Secondly, Phil Robertson and his clan are KLAN. These arsehats are the same people who terrorized the South in my parents' generation wearing sheets andburning crosses to get their message across, and don't worry, they'll remember where they left the hoods and torches here soon enough. The conservative movement, and forgive me for Godwinning the thread but in my honest opinion its not being thrown out as a slur but as a direct historical comparison, have become Nazis. They want a racialy and spiritual pure nation where government is an omniscient presence to preserve order in such a way so as to promote only one race, one gender, and one pure vision of morality. All other ideologies are impure and must be destroyed and anyone who voices something different whether they be rich or poor is acting against the collective whole. For them there can be no moderation, no equivocation, only the pure truth as they interpret it and as is explained to them by the party.

These guys left the annoying fringe territory long ago and as a Southerner scare the holy shiat out of me. Every year these guys get louder and louder and twist the truth with manufactured bandwagon reasoning the same way the National Socialists did in the lead up to Germany's last free election pre-Reichstag fire. Something, someone, somewhere needs to really stand up to these "people" and call them out for what they are before we wake up and start realizing we're living in a truly dystopian future a la "A Handmaid's Tale".

I should clarify however, I don't think this is as much a problem in the North as it is here in the South. These people have seized control of nearly every Southern state to the near total exclusion of all other political view points. The only holdouts are the cities, which make up substantially less of the population in the South as opposed to the North, and which are now being demonized in the state legislatures as anti-Chrisitan, refuges for illegal elements such as immigrants and "socialists".

I'm not trying to sound overly shrill or paranoid but when you look at the all the pieces that sum up the whole, hatred (not disagreement but hatred) of liberals, revisionist history of a better white America, revisionist history of a better "Christian" America, and really really big on the right to own, carry anywhere, and use assault style weapons, then it really begins to look like a create of TNT next to trash fire. You hope it doesn't go off but bets against are pretty long odds.

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'-not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues." --A&E star Phil Robertson

I have a casual acquaintance who I recently discovered has been using me as the "friend" in his "some of my best friends are gay" argument for years.

I discovered his posting name on one of those Freep-like message boards. Even though he's one of the more odious human beings fate has ever forced me to cross paths with, his handle insists that we're BFF's and I'm his undisputed window into the rainbow-colored world of male effeminacy. There are enough identifying marks in his semiliterate rambles to indicate that I'm the one he's using for verisimilitude.

It's weird being used as a body shield like that, without even knowing it. Someone out there is openly spreading hateful remarks and epithetical language, and claiming that it's perfectly okay because I'm sometimes in the same building as him and know his first name. Part of me really wants to get an account and blow his little charade out of the water, but I doubt it would last.

Sarah Palin strikes me as the sort of person who won't let her kids hang out with gay people because she's afraid they might get gay on them. I'm sure she does have a gay friend somewhere - statistics support it - but I doubt he's enjoying being used as her buffer zone.

Keep laughing about Sarah Palin, but when it really comes down to it, half this country buys into the shiat you're laughing about. Oh sure, they might agree that she's ridiculous and kind of a characterture, but the issues she's supposedly being lampooned over are real: hatred of the poor, mistrust of government, especially taxation, drilling for oil, "foreign policy" towards Arabs or Muslims, gay rights, workers' rights, right-wing traditional values.

Buffoon or not, there are many who have conservative leanings towards these things, and that mindset is hardly going away. Also, this buffoon almost became one heart beat away from President. That means she got a lot of support in 2008.

I don't think that Robertson is a racist or bigot. From what I have read, he and his family have been in entertainment for a while, and they just seem to be playing characters that they created for the show. And while I do believe what you say is going on in the south is true, I have seen it in the North also, That isn't Robertson. What Robertson is is a scumbag that would use bigotry and racial hatred to line his pockets with money. He knew what he said would cause outrage and controversy, and he knew the mouth breathers would flock to his show and buy the shows products, even if they knew about him before or not, because they think that he is one of them and they have to defend him. And that is just as bad as being a racist and bigot.

So here's my take on it. Marriage is a rite not a right.

Somewhere along the line the govt. got involved in it and marriage became a legal status.

Now should we recognize the significant other of a relationship with equal status as  we do a "marriage"? should gay couples get the same tax breaks, some visitation rights in hospitals, same status for insurance, same everything in a legal status? the answer is a big "YES". They need to change Marriage status to Mate status.

My question and I'm not religious I would say I was reluctant agnostic is why attack the church's? the real enemy is the govt. and the laws.

They need to change Marriage status to Mate status.

My question and I'm not religious I would say I was reluctant agnostic is why attack the church's? the real enemy is the govt. and the laws.


The really enemy is not the government and its laws its religious interference with the government and its laws. Marriage has both a secular and a religious meaning. That has evolved out of a tacit understanding between the civil government and church authorities that clerics would have authority to officiate matters of legally joining two people in both a religious and civil sense.

It made sense from a certain point of view. The civil authorities only care for the purposes of inheritance, legitimacy of children, and in previous eras, governance of the woman by her husband. For the religious authorities it was an expression of the divine power to be able to join people together, but also served the civil authorities by ensuring the union was legitimate.

Therefore when we talk about marriage it has two meanings that are intertwined but not inseparable in a modern secular civil society. Call it whatever you like, civil union, mate status, etc. That marriage has a dual meaning I think has never escaped any of the critics of gay marriage. No government requires of any religious official to perform rites that violate their religious dogma. I am a christian. I would not go demand of a Sikh cleric that he marry me and my so.

No one is forcing evangelical or conservative churches or clerics to perform rites that violate their religious convictions. They want to argue that their religious objections to homosexuality should trump the interests of the secular civil authorities in extending to others the same secular civil rights that are normally given to two people who have agreed to live in a confidential partnership.

My question and I'm not religious I would say I was reluctant agnostic is why attack the church's? the real enemy is the govt. and the laws.


Basically - once again, we've screwed up the separation of church and state. "Marriage" as a religious rite should be separate from "marriage" as a legal status administered by the state - and, at one time, they were. But, we've somehow equated the two, to the point where religion is dictating what government should and shouldn't allow. That's the real problem.

It's not just the idea of same-sex marriages - why are group marriage arrangements, such as polygamy, illegal? We allow relationships between corporations that would be considered a stoning offense had they been created between persons. As long as you're all genetically compatible, of sound mind and free will, why in the hell should the government make any form of marriage illegal?

Religion? Sure. Your religion, at that point, could easily limit (or not limit) your relationships any way that your religion saw fit, because they would be performing a rite, not administering a legal status. If you didn't like the limits placed on you by your religion, you could still change your legal status through secular means even as you fought to change your religion's limits. And, conversely, your religion wouldn't limit the rights of non-members by exploiting the state's close relationship with it to control the administration of that legal status.

It's not a hard problem to solve, and we already have the tools in place to solve it. Separation of church and state, marriage licenses, justices of the peace, etc., etc.

Your friend is a token if you happen to mention him/her in conversations about denying marriage equality but don't want to appear to be a bigot at the same time.


So here's my take on it. Marriage is a rite not a right.

Somewhere along the line the govt. got involved in it and marriage became a legal status.

Now should we recognize the significant other of a relationship with equal status as  we do a "marriage"? should gay couples get the same tax breaks, some visitation rights in hospitals, same status for insurance, same everything in a legal status? the answer is a big "YES". They need to change Marriage status to Mate status.

My question and I'm not religious I would say I was reluctant agnostic is why attack the church's? the real enemy is the govt. and the laws.

The really enemy is not the government and its laws its religious interference with the government and its laws. Marriage has both a secular and a religious meaning. That has evolved out of a tacit understanding between the civil government and church authorities that clerics would have authority to officiate matters of lega ...



Right on!!!

Why do you think it's just a subset? Gay people, who want a church wedding usually want it because they are religious, in my experience. Non-religious gay people usually don't give a crap about churches, temples or mosques.

Let me phrase it a different way. I'm saying in the eyes of the law straights, gays, polygamist, ect., should all be equal. Straights in the eyes of the law should be happy with civil unions. it's simple separation of church and state. The individual religion should be able to say how they want to handle their rites as a religion.

No. Sarah Palin has discovered that she doesn't have to actually say anything, she just needs to string together words long enough for whoever's "interviewing" her to nod and it'll be taken as something uttered in English that deserves consideration by someone with a central nervous system. She realizes that she doesn't need to actually use  language anymore.

That's the best explanation I've seen thus far.

True. Some of us refuse to be  froth-at-the-mouth fascists. Some of us have a well developed sense of fair play developed during our redneck upbring  that prompts us to speak up when we see something unjust, even against our idealogical enemies. Again, I'd like to point out the similarities between this situation and the All-American Muslim dust-up.

Here we have some reality stars expressing politcal views heavily influenced by their religion.
"After the Iranian revolution, people were really being more consciously aware of Islam," oldest sister Suehaila Amen, 32, explained. They began to learn about the faith.
"My mother and all my aunts were putting on the head scarf at the time, and I was trying to be like them, following in their footsteps. ... Everyone else was doing it. We wanted to do it, too."

 http://www.freep.com/article/20111113/FEATURES01/111130373/TLC-s-ne w-s eries-All-American-Muslim-illustrates-diversity-Islamic-women

Then we had a group complain and a company distance itself from the political views that might be attached to their brand and some said things like this.

"Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) called the move "bigoted, shameful, and un-American."
   and
" Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim American elected to Congress, issued a statement condemning Lowe's for deciding to "uphold the beliefs of a fringe hate group and not the creed of the 1st Amendment."

http://articles.latimes.com/2011/dec/13/business/la-fi-lowes-muslim- 20 111213

whcrow: Sgt Otter: StopLurkListen: Here's what Sarah Palin is defending:

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'-not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues." --A&E star Phil Robertson

Yeah, because when black people under Jim Crow were complaining about how awful they were being treated by the white establishment, they'd be sure to do it within earshot of another white person.


It's hard for people that grew up being racist in the city to accept there were/are places where it's not a problem.


Okay I just got back to this thread. First you wanted to play the whole marriage is a religious institution game and I'm okay with that. I f you look at it from a very short sighted narrow minded way yep that can be an issue. Not really when taken in context with the meaning of marriage from a  stand point of the civil law but okay you get half a point of credibility on that one.

The racist stuff about how its just about where you grew up is Racist Conservative Revisionist History 101 bs. It was a problem everywhere. I AM FROM THE SOUTH. MY FAMILY IS FROM THE SOUTH. Was there clear economic racism in the cities. Absolutely. But black people weren't being hung from the lampposts on 12th and Porter in downtown they were being hung out in the woods by redneck scum. Even today people who I know in law school who are normally completely nice rational people about everything else, hate black people because they are from BFE Tennessee and if people didn't look down on them so much for it they might still be lynching them.

Robertsons comments are an insult to the millions of Southerners who worked to end Jim Crow. Im not saying millions worked for equal rights or integration but the system of laws as they stood were an anathema to the moral sensibilities of many.

The truth of racism in the South that Robertson doesn't want to admit to is that white people were not asked to sit at the back of the bus. White people were not discriminated against and intimated away from polling places. White people were not being hung by their neighbors or hiding in terror from burning crosses on their lawns. Robertson's comment on race should have kept him off the air, or at least any reputable channel, permanently.

I said implicit and I didn't mention Iran's current regime. The author explains that there was a religious revival in the community after the Iranian revolution, more commonly  known to Americans as the Hostage Crisis. That's the part that pissed off the fundamentalists.

This interview is not the same as the one in GQ.

"I've read the Quran three times," says Amen, referring to Islam's holy text. "I know a lot about the religion. I was raised with it, going to all the Islamic Sunday schools growing up. Because I don't follow it to a T, that doesn't make me any less of a Muslim. Because in the end, it's God who's judging us, and I think he and I are cool."

 There, she says the same thing  Robertson said, the difference being the fact that the interviewer didn't question her as to what parts of the Quran she doesn't follow to a T or "what is sinful".

They're very cautious about not demonstrating beyond the stereotype that Muslims have to be rigid fundamentalists.

"I don't want to give people the impression the things I'm doing are synonymous with Islam."
She cautions that people should not judge her faith by her actions on the show.


"I'm here as a Muslim," Amen says. "But I'm not here to represent Islam. Nobody on the show is running for the Muslim of the Year award. No one is trying to represent the religion as a whole."

 Nowhere in the article do they even broach any uncomfortable truths about Islam and homosexuality. They merely mention the struggle of whether or not to she has to cover her head .
Clearly, unlike the interview with another religious reality star, no one in the media or the company was trying to give an accurate representation of the religion in this instance or any others. Some people had a problem with that. That why there was a dust up.

Pubby: whcrow: Sgt Otter: StopLurkListen: Here's what Sarah Palin is defending:

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'-not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues." --A&E star Phil Robertson

Yeah, because when black people under Jim Crow were complaining about how awful they were being treated by the white establishment, they'd be sure to do it within earshot of another white person.


It's hard for people that grew up being racist in the city to accept there were/are places where it's not a problem.

Okay I just got back to this thread. First you wanted to play the whole marriage is a religious institution game and I'm okay with that. I f you look at it from a very short sighted narrow minded way yep that can be an issue. Not really when taken in context with the meaning of marriage from a  stand point of the civil law but okay you get half a point of credibility on that one.

The racist stuff about how its just about where you grew up is Racist Conservative Revisionist History 101 bs. It was a problem everywhere. I AM FROM THE SOUTH. MY FAMILY IS FROM THE SOUTH. Was there clear economic racism in the cities. Absolutely. But black people weren't being hung from the lampposts on 12th and Porter in downtown they were being hung out in the woods by redneck scum. Even today people who I know in law school who are normally completely nice rational people about everything else, hate black people because they are from BFE Tennessee and if people didn't look down on them so much for it they might still be lynching them.

Robertsons co ...


All I can talk to is personal experience where I grew up and my dads best friend was black and I was welcome in their house and they were welcome in mine. I grew up playing with them they grew up playing with me. Same with the Mexicans.. Still taste the homemade tamales and miss them. I didn't know any better until I got older and made it to the city and found out what was really going on. granted this was early 60's and maybe I missed the era. So in a sense I lived what he was talking about, so it was possible. Wasn't a problem everywhere.

Wait you are a self described mulatto, but it is a big deal that your dad had a black friend so i guess that means your parents and yourself can pass as white, and since you were a little kid in the sixties, who was either white or could pass for white, and didn't see any racial problems there were no racial problems?

You would have to go back 4 generations to have the mulatto on the census records that describe my family. Who said anything about it being a big deal? Must be a big deal to you, are you a racist?

In one version of the story, Sarah's encounter with Rice took place in her sister Molly's dorm room at the University of Alaska Anchorage. "She hauled his ass down," a friend says, "but she freaked out afterward. Hysterical, crying,totallyflipped out. The thing that people remember is her freak-out, how completely crazy she got:I farked a black man! She was just horrified. She couldn't believe she'd done it."

If you have to go back 4 generations and you are pointing it out in this thread it is a Big Deal to you.
And you are the one who pointed out that your Dad's best friend was black, so if it is so important that you are sharing it in this thread it must be a big deal to you, either having a black friend is no big deal and you wouldn't even mention it or, if is remarkable that a white dude would have a black guy as his friend and therefore worth mentioning in a thread .

The problem they had was that it didn't satisfy the fundies stereotype that all followers of Islam are rabid terrorists who hate America so they pressured Lowes to drop it as an advertiser.  Instead it depicted American Muslims as actual people who are just as moderate about their religious views like most Christians are in this country.  Shocking!

wellreadneck: There, she says the same thing Robertson said, the difference being the fact that the interviewer didn't question her as to what parts of the Quran she doesn't follow to a T or "what is sinful".


Um yeah, if she said that she equated homosexuality with bestiality I'm sure it would have gotten the same reception that Robertson did.  It was never that Robertson was a Christian; it was due to him being an asshole and embarrassing the network in the process.  The irony is that Christians supporting Robertson have more in common with fundamentalist Muslims than this moderate woman who emigrated from Iran.

The point is how differently we treated Christianity and Islam in this situation . We didn't ask the same questions to each. We avoided placing the Muslim in an uncomfortable  position due to a respect for their faith or maybe a fear of reprisal. We had no such qualms with the Christian preacher.

Now I gotta 'splain my previous comment with the mirror a bit, before I wander buttlessly off to bed here.

Y'all got a bit frantic there with spongy and hauled out a huge pile of U at him and that was what caught my attention.

Generally that's not a conversationally beneficial thing to do, as it seems to indicate the likelihood of some unexamined ideas on the part of the U-hauler.

Trust me, I've caught myself plenty of times doing the same thing, or better yet, almost doing it and realizing I better re-think my position.

Thus, the little guy looking in a mirror.

It's useful to examine one's own views carefully before going on the NO U attack and...stealing someone's butt.

Have a good night, whcrow. Buttless Cat is gonna hit the hay.

Um, except she doesn't hate America.  She emigrated here.  There is no indication she supports the current brand of theocracy in Iran, especially since she's obviously a moderate wearing makeup and sporting tattoos.  There is no indication she supported Americans being taken hostage and Iran has plenty of moderates who hated the Shah but were equally let down by the fundamentalists who took over.  Ironically the fundies would have loved it if she was depicting herself as a radical since that's how they want all Muslims to be viewed.  It suits their purposes for propaganda.

wellreadneck: Of course there are Muslims who aren't homophobic.

GQ never asked Robertson to compare homosexuality to bestiality. He did that on his own.  That's the point.  There is no indication that they had separate standards since they were interviewed by two completely different organizations.  Of course Robertson got suspended for a couple of episodes.  The conservatives who attacked All-American Muslim wanted it completely pulled and succeeded.
