The day after A&E indefinitely suspended a star from its top-rated program for his comments about homosexuality, the network did nothing in response to the profane rants of two personalities from another show.
Political ideology apparently dictated the disparate treatment in the two cases, considering suspended star Phil Robertson espoused a biblical view on the sexual proclivity while two gay cast members from “Storage Wars: New York” embraced moral relativism.
Robertson, a devout Christian, expressed his disbelief that a man could choose another man as a sexual partner when a woman has “got more to offer.” For comments such as this, based entirely on his own personal beliefs, he was kicked off of the show he helped make a ratings giant for A&E.
Chris Morelli and Tad Eaton responded with a crass rebuttal which garnered no such punishment. The same-sex couple expressed their preference for “man a**,” which they say “beats vagina any day of the week.”
Their statement also indicates that they “could give a s*** what [Robertson] thinks” and insinuating that homosexual sex is somehow more enjoyable than that between a man and woman.
As profanely as it might have been expressed, these outspoken sodomites are certainly entitled to their opinion. Just as it did with Robertson, though, A&E also has the prerogative to institute consequences for their statement.
The fact that they treated their homosexual personalities differently is a testament to the power of today’s homosexual agenda-drivers. Orchestrated campaigns of propaganda and disinformation have legitimized what many consider a sinful lifestyle while demonizing those who speak out against it.
Just as Robertson’s statement apparently offended gay activists, the vulgar statements of Morelli and Eaton are just as abusive to those with a Bible-based worldview.
Though it remains the network’s decision regarding how to handle this controversy, millions of viewers will ultimately decide if executives made the right call.
