"A&E's indefinite suspension of 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson over his comments regarding homosexuality, and the subsequent backlash, is an important cultural moment in American life," Ben Shapiro writes.
"In all likelihood, Robertson will eventually be reinstated by A&E," Shapiro predicts. "In the meantime, we can learn some valuable lessons from this culture clash."
According to Shapiro, those lessons are:
1. "Hollywood hates conservatives and kowtows to GLAAD."
2. "Americans like conservatives on TV."
3. "Too many conservatives are uncomfortable with religious conservatives."
4. "The media don't understand or want to understand sin."
5. "The market works."
"In the end, the 'Duck Dynasty' controversy is a lesson in leftist intolerance," Shapiro concludes. "In leftist America, babbling . . . about the moral imperative of killing unborn 21-week-old children is a virtue, while citing Corinthians is sin. Traditionally religious Americans must take note of this clash of values and recognize that the culture war is indeed a war for the spiritual soul of the country. An anti-Biblical America is a worse America."
