    I'm merely here to throw out ideas that might help people understand why a man would say such horrible things about their fellow man.

    And I am pointing out that it's not ok. Sure, he may have "reasons", but it doesn't change anything at all.

    As far as I can tell why he may have been driven to it is of no concern to anyone, as it is non-impactful.

    Amen. It's nonsense and a waste of time trying to make sense of. (:

    I am sick to death of this excuse, no matter who it's about. The douchbag frat boys in Oklahoma, the dipshit black activists in Ferguson or Phil Robertson. He isn't brain damaged and he isn't uneducated. This is 100% his choice to feel and act in the way he does.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'll make specific responses tomorrow.

    For now I'll say that many of you are in a malaise.
    You are frogs being slowly boiled and you like the comfort of the heat.
    Until someone like Phil comes along and turns up the heat making you jump and be aware of the real consequence of heat.
    And you hate him for it and only want to be returned to the comfort of the slow boil and ignore the reality of the heat.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Well, I mean, I get what you're saying. There's no harm in trying to psychologically analyze why people feel the way they do and say the things they say. It's like trying to understand the psychological triggers of a serial killer (though obviously this is on a far less severe scale). Still, I don't think that he said this in a joking manner. It seemed rather serious.

    Anyway, what I'm getting at is that there's no harm in explaining someone's behavior! It's when it becomes and excuse that it gets ridiculous.

    I am too, but I point it out because it's really not an excuse; there's a valid truth of nurture gone wrong and I don't know if it's possible to change people that weren't taught from the time they were little kids to be respectful to themselves and others. There's clearly something missing or not right with them in the head.

    I'm an atheist. I like Phil. I like old-time Southern good ol' boys. I hate the show Duck Dynasty because it's too scripted. But I like it when genuine good ol' boys do their thing naturally.

    Phil can say what he wants. It's fun to see. Heat doesn't bother me.
