As you may have heard in the news, Phil Robertson made some comments in an interview with GQ magazine that were based on his faith and beliefs. These comments have drawn a great deal of criticism from several activist groups. I'm not going to discuss whether or not I agree with Phil Robertson's comments. That's not important. What is important is the way that the media and these activist groups have taken a one-sided view of the Constitution of this great country. As a citizen of this country, Phil Robertson has the right to believe what he believes, and say what he wants. Period. Just as the media has the right to report what it wants, and the activist groups have the right to comment all they want, Phil Robertson has the right to speak of his beliefs. The Constitution states that all citizens have the right to free speech, not the right to free speech as long as it agrees with certain opinions.
