Don’t even print outdated views of 'Duck Dynasty'

Published: Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 - 10:10 am

Re "GOP conservatives back 'Duck Dynasty' star" (Page A1, Dec. 20): It's ironic that conservative Ralph Reed bemoans a culture he calls increasingly intolerant and discriminatory toward his views. Those views, and the views of conservative Christians, are, by their very nature, intolerant and discriminatory. If someone was openly racist and tried to complain that their views were "under siege," we wouldn't lend it any credibility by printing it in a newspaper as The Sacramento Bee has done with the equally outdated views presented here. This kind of intolerance will only cease when we show it to be absolutely unacceptable in every situation where it occurs. The A&E channel understands that and suspended Phil Robertson from the "Duck Dynasty" show as a result. -- Isaac Smith, Sacramento
