    The opposition of a moral position is not what he is being flagged for. It's how he portrayed homosexuality; akin to bestiality. The guy, as a representative of A&E, has no business even mentioning bestiality, let alone using it in conjunction with homosexuality to establish a moral position. For a guy who spends so much time in the woods..., it's not something you want mentioned when your name comes up.

    Also, you can bet A&E highly regrets their decision -
    the backlash directed at them must be difficult to deal with....



    Lots of things are difficult to deal with.

    But people continue to deal with them and life goes on.

    Has eco even supported the Duck Dynasty guys? But thank you for giving us an even clearer example of the fallacy, though that wasn't likely your intention

    A&E is the Arts & Entertainment Network.

    The government is the people in Washington, D.C. who take all of your money and spend it or give it to other people.

    He grouped them both together as sins

    That seems more a choice for a&e, but rather irrelevant to your earlier point making the distinction between normative and positive statements

    That's precisely what I meant, who cares (in terms of this issue) what you think, you're not a viewer, and this won't keep you from watching other shows on A&E. This is either a huge advertising gimmick by A&E or they are absolute idiots, in which case the producers will be fired.

    No it sent against the law to suspend him. He wasn't suspended because of his religion.

    Indefinitely suspending him is merely a euphemism for being terminated from employment.
    Homosexuality being sin is a known belief of Abrahamic religions, so yes, he was "suspended" for expressing his religious belief, which included a paraphrase of Corinthians.
    Employers cannot fire employees for reasons that would violate anti-discrimination laws.
    However, it's up to him to pursue a grievance on the issue for it to be enforced.

    Are both homosexuality and bestiality considered to be sins and discouraged by stories in the bible? I can say that crime includes trespass, robbery and murder. They are not equal crimes, in terms of severity or sentence, but they are "akin" as they are all crimes.

    And yet A&E commercial supporters are still there. I think it's YOU who thinks this is a big deal. Facebook "likes" don't stop money flowing in, actual actions do. Have t seen A&ES hurting one bit. But you have fun stomping your feet and foaming at the mouth over the suspension
