    What does tax evasion and murder have to do with homosexuality? I think what you are failing to grasp is that comparing things that do not cause harm (homosexuality) to things that do cause harm (theft, adultery, etc.) is disrespectful and insulting. Not to mention his definition of sin starts with homosexuality. In his mind it is such a big deal that it is the starting point for talking about all other sin.

    The logic some of you display is terrifyingly bizarre. You twist and twist until its hard to even make sense of anything anymore.
    Can you please point out the quote in which he is spewing hate speech? I would appreciate it.

    Please enlighten me to what is considered "hate speech" by you.
    "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.

    You think they exist to amuse you?
    Advertising costs/rates are based on ratings which are based on the viewers who are watching for their enjoyment. So to answer your question, yes I do.

    Being a celebrity means who you are is tied into branding concerns. Marketing 101.

    Rights go both ways. How do people not get this?
    And I am willing to bet the large numbers this show is pulling in will side with Phil in this, so what good did it really do A&E to remove him from the show?

    You seem to be confused. Tv shows are marketed to the broadest possible base to increase their ratings. When you have someone insult half the country you are cutting into those ratings so A&E took action. This is not "progressive tyranny", its business. This is not the government controlling anything, it is the free market.

    What exactly is your problem here?
    That's just it, it wasn't the viewing audience complaining. And no, shows are designed for target audiences.

    I'm not arguing against your point, merely showing that the door swings both ways.

    Maybe I should go bash a gay person on TV and ride the wave of martyrdom...
    What gay person did he bash...on TV ?
