Josh Barro Vs. Phil Robertson
Check out Business Insider's misrepresentation of Phil Robertson. Barro's uncharitable assessment of Robertson's ideas is evident even just from the captions of Robertson's opinions that Barro himself excerpts. There is nothing wrong with highlighting your own experience of a politically charged era. Criticizing other people for not adhering to one's own moral system is commonplace, and Barro himself does it in the article. I'll give it to Barro that Robertson's statement about gays is quite an Old Testament cocktail. But hatred is a strong word, and one that gay activism throws around much too liberally. Indeed, they tend to apply it to anyone who dares disagree with them.
