Duck Dynasty: Why are opinions offensive?


We live in a society that is becoming more tolerant about lifestyles but which is also becoming more intolerant about opinions.

I hear people talk about freedom of speech, with the controversy which has been caused by comments from Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson about his views on the immorality of homosexuality. Of course he has every right to say what he said. The counter argument is that “just because you have freedom of speech doesn’t mean that you have freedom from consequences.” That is also true.
