    Hmmm....Let's see....

    Christian population identifying as such in the US....77%

    In U.S., 77% Identify as Christian

    Conversely, Homosexuals in the US.....<1%

    The 2000 U.S. Census Bureau found that homosexual couples constitute less than 1% of American households.

    What Percentage of the Population Is Gay?

    Are you then supporting a majority rule?

    Maybe it's about the tyranny of the minority.

    Now, how about you link the percent of gay supporters and not just gays before looking completely intellectually dishonest.

    I think that I was clear....A&E is bending to majority rule, as most businesses would be expected to.

    Hey look, I support Gay's right to marry as much as any other group, or should I say I don't really care what they do. But when they try and shove their agenda down my throat, then they are just like any other assholes.

    Claiming the "behavior" of answering a religious question with a bible verse is an embarrassment to a television network is discrimination.
    The case, and this discussion, hasn't concerned statements of race, but statements of religion regarding sexual behavior.
    What you expect is one thing. However, when you sign a behavior clause and you go public, you can be fired.

    No. He was fired for violating his clause. For saying stupid bigoted comments.

    Just another level of dishonesty eh Joe? Come on man.



    That's right. It does not make it homophobic. But one has to understand what they are talking about before criticizing that which they obviously know little about.



    Who in the hell are you to decide what people should believe? When will you liberals learn that not everyone has to believe things exactly like you do....That you don't accept the bible, and think that is proper is your choice, but to look down on others because they do, or to make such an arrogant statement as "nor should we", is asinine....



    "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. 3"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye?

    Matthew 7:3
    Once again you are arguing about what did not say. I've been sure how to deal with as you don't listen when I point it out.

    but let me try:

    1) the author and the article mean very little to me.

    2) I did not tell anyone what to believe.

    3) what he said smacks of bigotry.
