    Freedom of speech means you can speak against the government of the U.S. without fear of reprisal.  It does not mean you can say anything you want without suffering the consequences from everyone else.

    I am a born-and-bred southerner, have never watched this show and have no desire to watch this show.  So all southerners do not love this show.

    I don't care what religion someone has or if they have any at all.  But, there should be a basic standard of behavior for what is said by people who live their life publicly and make money doing so.  

    This person has stepped over the line with his statements regarding both LGBT and African Americans.  If we never respond to this type of behavior, it will only become more widespread (if that's possible at this point).  

    I for one am tired of sitting back and listening to inflamatory talk and being told that I'm too thin skinned, or they have a right to say what they want, blah blah blah.  Anyone can say whatever they want, but the rest of us don't have to sit down and STFU.
