    You know what also happens? People getting bombarded with the Christian tenants on a daily basis. Try and think about one day you have had where you didn't witness anything that has ties to the Christian religion. The are organizations whose sole purpose is to do exactly that.

    People of the Christian faith are supposed to spread the message, it's part of their beliefs. And when they do that, inevitably they are going to run into opposition. It's a two way street.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    What is wrong with you man?

    IMO, since this is reality TV, that makes the "punishment" even worse.
    Well if you find the part of the Constitution that says you have the right to be on TV, or to be shielded from consequences of speaking your mind, I'm all ears.

    This must be the thread where people argue about which political or religious opinions, publicly stated, are grounds for firing and which are not. Lest some forget, recall Geico.

He says 1 thing about homos and it's suddenly cause for debate.
    I don't agree with the characterization of the man but the point is valid.

    They end each show with a prayer before the meal so is it a surprise the man doesn't wholly embrace gays?

    I wonder why GQ asked him about gays in the first place. They are not part of his world so maybe it was a gotcha question.

    I'm not arguing against their right to run their network how they see fit - I'm saying they were being de facto intolerant...

    A&E was just pandering to political correctness...

    Really? You can't see intolerance on the part of the homosexual lobby/political activist that use political correctness to their end and endeavor? Clearly this person is being punished for his point of view which is different from theirs. Where does it end - or do you only get to draw the line?

    I don't necessarily agree with A&E's actions here, but your definition of the word "intolerant" is wrong.

    And when did I even make or imply any of that?

    You're just making up a bizarre argument that's from left field (no pun intended)...
