    Looks like A&E's cash-cow may go down the drain. Maybe A&E will lose a bunch of value in their stocks now. I doubt the Robertson family gives a **** one way or another.

    And you are being absurd.
    Saying you dislike something is fine.
    Saying something is a sin is also fine and not bigoted as that is a religious belief. One you can not prove to be untrue.

    Yes your comment is hogwash, as it is not true.
    He stated that they were sins. That is not comparing the two.

    Well, those are the extreme reactions to vile anti-gay views not unlike Robertson vocalizes.
    So we are equivocating statements to the possible reactions to such statements? jesus man,talk about peddling bull**** to make a point

    He might not be doing it or approving of it but it is the reality that gays have to live with.
    You cited the terms to justify the reaction to his statements in the gq interview. Sorry, now going "well it happens to gay's as well" makes absolutely no sense

    Sadly anti-gay crime is still a problem and with people saying anti-gay comments does not help in the fights of anti-gay crime.
    They are in no way the same thing and to try an equate them is totally dishonest

    Both sides have valid (removing the hysterics for a moment) points. One side says; The guy can say whatever he wants but A&E has the right to take action if they don't agree because of his contract or whatever. Basically "consequences". The other side says, what ever happened to tolerance and A&E knew what they were getting but as long as the ratings and money were coming in, it's all good. Tolerance seems to only go one way.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
