I think I would be in that camp too. Defend their right to say this and support this. To those guys it was art and so be it. But your point is the VERY REASON why we shouldn't be in such a hurry to silence and punish people for saying things. We are much better off knowing who they are and their judgement and opinion than if you hush them with disbarment or political pressure. If you do, they are still the same person on the inside....only now they just might be your lawyer.
