Re "Free speech is protected, not TV gigs" (Viewpoints, Jan.1): In William Endicott's article, he seems quick to note that Phil Robertson of the Duck Dynasty television show displays homophobia. But a phobia is generally defined as a strong irrational fear of a certain thing or situation. Nowhere have I seen Robertson as fearing homosexuals. Perhaps Robertson simply disagrees with the homosexual lifestyle. I believe he is free to do that.
