    But no. It doesn't matter. In a free society these things can and do happen.
    And its not wrong with commenting that its rather stupid that people keep losing their jobs for mentioning their personal beliefs.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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 I find funny is imagine this same scenario, but instead of a christian getting suspended for anti gay remarks, it was a gay guy getting suspended for saying there is no God and fox suspending him. I wonder how many people who support A&E would support fox? My guess is very few. They'd be pissed he was suspended for stating his beliefs. And along those same lines how many people who think A&E shouldn't have suspended this guy would support the gay guy's comments about God? My guess is they'd say Fox had every right.

    I never even implied that, but I certainly can make an argument that this situation is no different than the government getting involved when a baker refuses to bake a gay couple a cake - because this is de facto discrimination.

    Sorry, you have like a 6th grade logic....

    You obviously believe only some people can be discriminated against.

    It's like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson saying blacks cant be racist...

    Hilarious and a great example of what's being discussed here. Your second sentence is discrimination and hate speech directed against folks you disagree with. Totally at odds with your first sentence. Rank hypocrisy.

    As for A&E, purely a financial decision, gotta keep those advo dollars coming in. Now, if ratings drop a bunch because of this move and the advo dollars are threatened that way, Phil will be back PDQ.

    Again, why do you continue maintaining a blatantly false position? He did not compare it to bestiality, he pointed out that he viewed both as sins.

    Can you actually address that or will you just repeat yourself a third time? Look, feel free to disagree with what he said, just try to be honest about it as well. We can't have an actual conversation about the topic until you do that

    That's normal. The problem is you're finding your opinions are shunned.

    I would side with the baker I'm this case.

    Bullpuckey. Especially considering IMO a goodly portion of the show's audience feel the same way as Phil. The folks with the butthurt feelings are not the folks who watch the show.

    My position is based exactly on his words. He chose what to lump together with homosexuals and homosexuality. You can deny it all you want, but it won't change him lumping gays with terrorists, nor homosexuality with bestiality. If you cannot comprehend why that might piss some people off, the issue is not with me.
