    You are the one complaining about the suspension.
    No, I'm not complaining about the suspension. Obviously your reading is not fine because my posts on this subject have been that this really isn't any real suspension at all. He's already on film hiatus. It's like suspending someone from school when it's already summer recess.

    Are you denying that you're not onboard with the GLAAD folks who started this thing off, or at very least arguing their case? Or are you saying A&E were the ones who manufactured this whole thing, and thus they started it?

    You really haven't been following the thread have you? I haven't been "whining about how he got shafted". My comments have largely been about the stupidity of the GLAAD complainers and the transparency of what A&E is doing with this faux suspension that you seem blind to.

    In heartening news on the hypocrisy front, in under 24 hours Cracker Barrel went from yanking "Dynasty" products to caving and putting them back.

    I kinda dimly remember watching A&E when it still had Biography on. Now it's just "Storage Wars." I mean, who watches this stuff?

    yet you insist the outcome was a net positive for the bigot
    then you should be celebrating those who provoked his involuntary suspension
    and because you are not, you must then be found whining

    I told you before I DON'T CARE about whether A&E suspends him or not, so no I have not been on board because I DON'T CARE one way or another. I will continue to watch the shows I watch REGARDLESS of this. So yes, you are full of **** when you claimed "I" started anything with this.

    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 ****?

    To my knowledge its illegal in Canada to quote the Bible's passages dealing with homosexual sin over radio and TV. At the same time, ministers are required to officiate homosexual marriage ceremonies a condition of being issued the credentials needs to officiate marriages in their churches. Full disclosure: A minister from Canada told me this however I've heard another Canadian deny it. It might apply to just certain provinces. ???

    No one's religious rights have been stepped. He's still free to believe whatever he wants. Go to church where he wants. Say whatever he wants.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    WTF does Canada have to do with an issue with an American Show and a comment about homosexuality in the United States of America?

    Muslim countries also stone gays to death, which of course has nothing to do with this thread as well.
