    Praying on TV is a bit over the top. But, I like that the character of the people on this particular reality show is such that they are not back-stabbing, arguing over petty crap like the drama queens we see on Real Housewives. It's a wholesome show, and I'm sorry that its getting axed. Maybe Fox will pick it up.

    The weird part is that you progressives tolerate such absolute disgusting nonsense like OWS but will cry over a few words some reality TV star said...

    You do realize you're just trying to regulate what is acceptable and what is not???

    Look in the mirror or look at your post.... You cant even value a personal opinion.
    Evidently common decency is an abstract concept for you.

    There is no progressive irony here. As a nation we've decided we don't tolerate hate speech. If you want to spew hate then you will have to accept the consequences. That is the free will of the people, deal with it.

    Progressives are who they claim to hate, or don't tolerate while they're promoting tolerance..

    Sorry progs, people are not all robots - we all have different ideas, opinions, beliefs, lifestyles etc..

    Unfortunately for your argument, you would be ignoring the generational and contextual shift that has occurred around homosexuality in just the past ten years. And just like interracial marriage, it's going to take time to work through our society and be "generally accepted. And for anyone that rather recognize that reality, as opposed to mount some pointless "culture war" against it, they understand that such actions just help foster and reinforce the resistance against it. In fact, it's why intelligent people tend to disagree with imposing views on democratic societies when cultural shifts are occurring naturally (Ginsburg ala RvsW)


    Would you think my employer was being intolerant if they suspended or fired me for that?
    The employer here is responding to organized threats of boycotts, not some random interview

    PS also, where did I bring up the whole "intolerance" thing? Respond to what I write, not the pre-digested cud you have sitting around

    You don't know what hate speech is...

    Sorry, not agreeing with a lifestyle is NOT hate speech and you (and you arrogantly speaking for everyone) have decided nothing...

    You should embrace and respect that concept...

    Who the hell do you think you are? you think you're better than everyone else? you seriously that obsessed with your intolerance?

    This wacko is free to say the hateful crap that is on his mind.

    The viewers are free to stop watching A&E if they are offended by something one of their employees says.

    A&E is free to listen to their customers and release an employee that is hurting its revenues.

    There's no bullying here.

    Except he didnt equate them...he listed them in a group of behaviors commonly known as 'sins' to Christians. All other meaning is meaning you and people like you are assigning.
