To some, freedom of religion means the freedom to persecute people who don't agree with them, and further degenerates into persecuting targets which are easier to nail. IE: politically correctness.

I don't watch Duck Dynasty, but it's obvious that the wrong target was selected - the corporate bottom line (advertisement revenue) speaks loud and clear as to what's acceptable by the viewership of individuals (who watch the program) who are tired of having agendas forced down their throats. However, if it were the mid size business owner down the street...

It worked in the 60's with Frito Lay and the Frito Bandito and has worked until now, but maybe that form of of coercion is losing its ability for the perpetually offended to bludgeon others over inconsequential bullshit.
