Tony Dungy was the latest victim to feel backlash from the PC police because he simply expressed an honest opinion when asked a question. I'm ok with a person who expresses an opinion getting rebutted with a civil and constructive opposing point of view, but these PC cops take any news they find contrary to their own to the extreme. They not only want an apology, which I feel is ridiculous in this case, they want to see people fired and or ostercized in public.
I find the hypocrtical nature of the PC police appaling. Not one peep from them when a man like Tim Teebow is subjected to un-solicited anti-Christian rhetoric. That seems to be perfectly OK.... but let a man like Tony Dungy or David Tyree express an opinion and the PC police (media included) will light them up in a blatant attempt to ruin their career. Its a huge double standard!
I don't condone the actions of people like Richie Incognito, it was wrong to single out a person and try to make thier life miserable. That is bullying and has no place anywhere. However, I support anyone who is asked a question about thier own beliefs on a topic and they give an honest answer. I don't have to agree with their answer, but I understand they are entiled to thier opinion and respect the fact they answered the question openly and honestly. I don't think they should be demonized.
Now I'm certain some folks are going to try and turn this thread into something it's not, go off an a heated tagent, and eventually have it closed or deleted. I kept the thread very general in nature because it can apply to a variety of different topics.It is not a hate thread, it is a thread about learning to be tolerant regardless of your point of view.If you think your not going to like the answer someone gives, then don't ask the question. Sometimes I think people ask a person a question, because they already know the answer and just want them to state it out loud so they can go off on tirade. It's stupid and its not fair to that person to be condemned for having an opinion.
