People get fired. Sorry, Phil Robertson.

Nothing can spruce up a boring Thursday like some Duck Dynasty drama, eh?

Well for those of you who haven't heard, apparently A&E indefinitely suspended Phil Robertson of the show Duck Dynasty for the anti-gay remarks he made in a recent interview with GQ.

I personally have only caught a few glimpses of the show, so I'm not familiar with Phil Robertson's character and personality, but I would really like to address people making this suspension out to be an attack on Christianity and civil rights, when it most definitely is not.

According to the CNN report:
"In an interview in the January issue of GQ, Robertson says homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.


'It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes!

The Boy Band Evolution

I am a proud product of the '90s.

I know the entire Fresh Prince rap by heart, I listened to music on a Walkman not an Ipod, I had a tamagotchi instead of a real pet, and still own about 100 VHS tapes because in my day, you watched movies on VCRs. And the orange Nickelodeon movies were always the best.

What is your purpose in my life?

I heard a saying today that made me really think about the people in my life and what their purposes are. Not material purposes, or what I can use them for, but sincerely why they're there; why they became a part of my life.

The saying I'm referring to is "People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime."

It's true - in it's simplest form. Basically people are in your life for a very specific purpose, for a short period of time or for a long period of time. Essentially everyone in your life can fall into one of the categories. The perplexing part, is which people fall in to which category?
