Sarah Palin on Phil Robertson Scandal: Stop with the Intolerance!

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin has already expressed her view on the Phil Robertson scandal that has rocked television's top-rated reality show.

Soon after A&E suspended the Duck Dynasty star, Palin Tweeted that Robertson simply expressed his "personal opinion" and his rights to free speech were being impinged on.

That's a commonly misguided point of view, considering the First Amendment has nothing to do with one suffering professional consequences for one's words or actions.

But Palin went On the Record With Greta Susteren this week and admitted she hasn't actually read Robertson's fiery comments regarding homosexuality.

"I haven't read the article. I don't know exactly how he said it," Palin told the host. "What he was doing was in response to a question about a lifestyle he disagrees with, and yet he has said over and over again he doesn't hate the person engaging in the lifestyle he disagrees with, but in response he was quoting the gospel.

"So people who are so insulted and offended by what he said evidently are offended by what he was quoting in the gospel."

Robertson has since added that he's "not a hater" and that he loves "all humanity."

But he's also refused to apologize for classifying homosexuality as a sin, ranking "sexual immorality" as number-one on his biblical list of no-no's.

Ironically, Britsol Palin - who had sex and a child out of wedlock - agrees, recently saying A&E's suspension of Robertson "flies in the face of what makes America great" and referring to the LGBT community as "hypocritical" for its backlash against the star.

Sarah Palin, meanwhile concluded her interview with Susteren by saying there's a lesson we all should take from the Robertson flap:

"Thicken your skin and quit being so intolerant of people expressing public opinion and private opinion."

SHOULD A&E CANCEL DUCK DYNASTY IN THE WAKE OF ROBERTSON'S COMMENTS?

SHOULD ROBERTSON APOLOGIZE?

DO YOU AGREE WITH SARAH PALIN'S TAKE ON THE SCANDAL?
