Todd Starnes defends "Duck" star from "anti-straight", "anti-christian haters"

Considering how many appearances had been made by Phil Robertson for the American Family Association, it is a little bewildering to see him having made blatantly homophobic remarks as being newsworthy.

"It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus," Robertson had said. "That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."

Unsurprisingly, the Religious Right could not care less about Robertson's suggestion that marriage is purely about sex and is instead rushing to his defense.

Todd Starnes of Fox News, who has an extensive history of whining that he is being persecuted through his inability to persecute others, immediately took to his Twitter account to whine about that again.

Intolerant, Anti-Straight groups are targeting Duck Dynasty ... Mainstream Media STUNNED to find out that Duck Dynasty staff believes in the teachings of the Bible...It was only a matter of time before intolerant, anti-Christian haters targeted Duck Dynasty...Shouldn't Americans be allowed to hold personal beliefs -- even if you don't agree with them?...The Mainstream Media and militant gay rights groups will try to destroy Duck Dynasty. Just watch....At what point do all these bigots demand that the Bible be outlawed because of what it says about "you know what"?

Yes Todd, Americans should be allowed to hold personal beliefs, even if you don't agree with them. Which is precisely what is being done in response to Phil Robertson's anti-gay remarks.

Why, Todd, do you decry it as tyranny whenever someone expresses a belief with which you disagree?
