    Oh, so tolerant of them.
    Exactly, if some people are offended they can boycott the show.... "Suspending" him is just pandering to special interests.

    He'll be back on the air without question - this has angered lots of people...

    Yes, as a sin. Am i equating murder and tax fraud above when I point out they are both "crimes? Again, you're totally misrepresenting what was stated. And clearly you can't directly address that issue besides mindlessly repeating yourself

    I don't like what Phil says but he should have a right to express his opinion. And though A&E has a right to react, I believe he'd have to make more disparaging comments more often or during the show before being removed. Tolerance is a two way street.

    If he keeps using his notoriety as a platform for making comparative and condemning comments about orientation, then advertisers and Networks won't want any association with him.

    Why do you think A&E doesn't want him on anymore? People not watching = less money for them. Is it so hard to understand that the network is a business and want to make a profit?

    Tolerance has nothing to do with it. Again, words have meanings. Learn them.

    People are "punished" for not adhering to a philosophy all the time. Remember all the country stations that stopped playing the Dixie Chicks because they had the temerity to criticize Bush? Was that "tolerant?" It's completely the wrong word. Words have meanings and just because you and your Republican buddies can't wrap your heads around that isn't my problem.
    I'm not arguing that you can't have an opinion - I'm saying the progressive position on this issue is intolerant.

    Remember - you progressives are the ones that believe that there should be consequences for offending you - clearly there are - and that isn't right and that is why I'm posting my displeasure with you.....

    You're just trying to justify a punishment for a man speaking his mind.

    You're wrong - blatantly wrong...

If not, why should people who express an intolerance with homosexuality get to express themselves freely, but not the people who support it?
    GLADD and the liberals can't stand the truth that gay sex is a sin, according to the Bible. A&E is promoting the lie that gay sex is a good thing. It's not. It's an abomination to the Lord.

    So, woe to those who call good evil, and evil good.
