Following the comments by the Italian Catholic designers in support of the “traditional family,” Elton John, Martina Navratilova and others called for a boycott of the company.
Speaking on his television show on Tuesday, Beck said that such a boycott would be like locking Galileo in a tower for opposing the conventional science of the day.
"Is this the kind of freedom that we're at? Anyone who feels the same as Dolce and Gabbana, let me ask you, are they empowered to express their view or are they now afraid that Hollywood and progressives will come after them?
“The party of progress is making progress indeed, back to the Dark Ages, back to the days when differing scientific views were labeled heresy and black magic. As the march toward conformity continues, America gets farther and farther away from the place where those who will change the world with art and science and music, those who will bring on the next Renaissance just might find themselves locked up in a tower and sadly never paint the next Mona Lisa.”
