    So what he said was just ridiculous and downright bigoted.
    As long as nobody suggests adding trache-holes or inverted penises to the list of "which is better", I think we are in the clear.

    Employees need explicit job protection for saying "something controversial"? Who defines that?

    Essentially, a homosexual can say or do anything expressing his homosexuality and he is protected from any kind of discrimination with hiring and firing, but a christian quoting pretty much directly out of the bible can be fired for the same thing.

    All I'm saying is we should have a little bit of consistency here. If A&E were to fire a homosexual for saying something homosexual in a non-related magazine, wouldn't everyone lose their ****?
    I want to point out...he has talked about his faith plenty of times in a personal context. In this passage he's used faith to attack others.

    To me it's a pretty easy distinction to make. There's no double standard here...there's just a lot of things in the bible people latch on to which deals more with how others should be treated than how they personally live their life. It's one thing (and ridiculous to say) "I'm not gay because the bible tells me not to be"...it's another to criticize homosexuals.

    “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

    He also said, about homosexuality:

    "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! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."

    He also said, "We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

    You know who else said gay marriage was a 'moral' issue and one formed by his Christian belief system?

    This guy....

Hell yes! But don't try and make it sound like it was just some opinion expressed by these groups without any threats....
    Targeting advertisers, boycotts, picketing all are First Amendment rights. Sorry if you don't like the Constitution. The fact of the matter is: People are free to say whatever they want, but they are not free to escape the ramifications of their speech.

    The employer. Not sure I really like it, but it is what it is. In this case however, it goes way beyond that, since public perception of the characters of the show could have a significant impact on the companies bottom line. Under that circumstance, wrongful termination would be almost impossible no matter what the laws of that state are or the contract is.

    No it doesn't. That is just the failed argument of the right-wing every time they cry about people being held responsibility for their hate speech.
