    IMO, I think the network was just looking to exploit white Christian men with beards in the first place - the same way they tried to portray white people like that honey boo-boo baby family (whatever that show is called)...

    I don't even watch TV or support those evil doers attempt at brainwashing people.

    As I stated earlier, maybe the family will band together and leave the network

    Right now what he said is irrelevant...
    A&E was practicing free speech by deciding what to air on its own private networks. It isn't "free speech vs. A&E" here...

    Some of you right wingers have a pretty funny idea about how free speech works.

    The gentleman works for A&E.

    They can fire him if they want to.
    You think that is the same as this man saying he doesn't deal with gays and he will let God sort it out?

    Yeah, if you cannot understand why some one might be upset about being compared to bestiality or terrorists, I think there is a real disconnect.

    I hope they do actually. While I disagree with Phil's point of view, it's inspiring to see his moral strength

    Yeah, they're not trying to make money or anything. They're just out to get you.

    So when A&E, a business, was threatened with losing money, they took an action to not lose money? And that makes them different than just about every other business?

    I'm also curious about your idea of "thuggish"...if GLAAD and "the rest of them" expressing their opinion on the topic of homosexuality is thuggish, do you consider Robertson's comments thuggish too? If not, why should people who express an intolerance with homosexuality get to express themselves freely, but not the people who support it?

    Again I ask...who really is the intolerant one here?

    Exactly, though I don't know if I would say it is a quality exclusively to "the right". I think both sides firmly believe in the "right to express yourself until you say something I don't like".
    I hope the whole family sticks together and tells A&E that they won't do the show anymore.

    That will cost a lot more money than a few gays complaining.
