    So, it looks like the Lefty got a harsher punishment than the Bible Thumper...but, yet all the RW'ers here can't seem to get over the fact that Phil is being asked to leave.

    no, bigoted beliefs - and the expression of them, is what makes him a bigot

    just as if he had cited passages of the bible which tolerate slavery; doing so would not make him any less a bigot if he had used such biblical references to justify slavery

    phil has outed himself as a bigot. loud and clear. whether by ignorance, or religious belief, or both

    Do you know any different?
    I know this.
    After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.
    Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation...

    ..which is a resignation that only a moron would say was "voluntary".

    Does this case seem almost exactly the same as Costas and his gun rant?

    I would think that terminating someone for stating a religious belief (and wasn't even said on A&E) is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
    pretending that homophobia is biblically accepted does not provide the speaker safe haven for making bigoted statements

    It is clear who Duck Dynasty is and what they promote on their show. It was NO surprise that Phil would answer in the way he did when asked the question he was asked. Plus he really didn't say anything horribly offensive in my humble opinion.

    The groups you listed seem to be promoting a change in media back to some sort of less corruption aimed at our kids. You're against that?
    Boycotting JC Penneys for hiring Ellen is about media corruption of children? Boycotting Betty Crocker for baking cakes for same sex couples is about media corruption of children?
    Did you even bother to actually read the lists and the reasons? Few to none of them had anything to do with the media at all.

    An elderly redneck and outspoken Christian from the American South expressed less than progressive opinions on an issue? Wow, this is the most shocking story I have heard in a long time. For the record I do not care what gay people do. Robertson is entitled to his religious beliefs, but in the end he works for a private company. He has "free speech" but he doesn't have the right to be paid to say what he says. The point is we live in a society increasing accepting of LGBT. You might think it is a sin but losing your job is the risk you take for strongly condemning it now days. Companies exist to make money, and they feel the money is on the side of appearing progressive on this issue.
