SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -
A local leader of the LGBT community in Shreveport supports the A&E Network's suspension of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson after comments about same-sex relationships in a recent GQ Magazine interview.
The President of P.A.C.E., which stands for "People Acting for Change and Equality" is David Hylan. Hylan had plenty to say about the Duck Dynasty controversy, along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's support of Phil Robertson and the Robertson family.
First off, Hylan said any Christian who says homosexuality is a sin is committing hate speech because they use that as a basis to try to limit his access to equality and equal rights.
And Hylan takes issue with Robertson using the Bible to argue his point. "He quotes the Bible and conveniently he does not go to the laws in Leviticus that would probably condemn him and his family to hell for eating shellfish, wearing blended clothing," said Hylan.
Hylan also took issue with comments made Gov. Jindal, who released a statement saying, "Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with."
Hylan responded to Jindal's statement by saying, "I think that our esteemed governor probably does not understand First Amendment rights."
Hylan points out that the First Amendment only protects citizens from government censorship. Plenty of people get fired all the time from private employers for things they say. That particular organization may find someone's remarks offensive, embarrassing or bad for business.
