Phil Richardson, let it be.

America is in an uproar, some people think Mr. Duck should be condemned for his conservative Christian views, others believe he is being bullied by a liberal LGBT conspiracy.  Really? Phil Richardson’s currently remind me of the following fable:

The Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion
says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”

Replies the scorpion: “Its my nature…”

Phil Richardson spoke, and acted according to his nature. You can’t blame him for that. Even though I could spend my entire life arguing against his point of view, he is still entitled to his own beliefs. When did America become so afraid of differing opinions that we cannot on either side at least acknowledge that other people might not see the world how we see it? Rather than viewing the Duckman’s beliefs as a sad relic of our past, people  are showing their lack of sensitivity for other people’s less fortunate viewpoints. In the end, GQ did an excellent hack job.
