    Yes, I understand that. You understand their celebrity status has made them millions upon millions of dollars each year, in addition to the extra money they make in sales due to increased visibility, right?

    So, woe to those who call good evil, and evil good.
    My experience is most Christians regularly sin but only care about the sins which allow them judge others. I'm not really all that interested in watching someone throw a stone from a glass house.

    That will cost a lot more money than a few gays complaining.
    I doubt it. Sure, it might hurt ad revenue during that particular time slot, but a negative impact on reputation would hurt ad revenue on all time slots.

    Please enlighten me to what is considered "hate speech" by you.
    What is this a nursery? I'm not going to read you a story at your bedside. You can search for and read the quotes yourself, its barely two paragraphs. I've also explained in this thread what I consider hate speech using what Duck man said.

    I find it hilarious that Sarah "Hello Quitty" Palin is all up in arms about this, but....she wanted Martin Bashir fired, didn't she?

    Hypocrisy, she's soaking in it!

    If you read my posts in the thread you will see where I stated the belief that the network made a bad business call

How many people here were incited to hatred over the large number of democrat backing ministers objected strenuously to Obamas election time 'evolution'? And you want to pretend the response is even REMOTELY equal? Pleeeeaasseee...

    There is a total difference between customers boycotting something and companies releasing people (firing them) for PC reasons.

    Customers/Consumers are, at least in my view, permitted free range to boycott something all they want and it not be WRONG in my view.

    A company, while legally they can do this as well, is just wrong to fire someone for a personal belief they had that they shared outside of that work area, again... in my opinion.
    "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.

    Yes for a target audience but they also do everything they can to hedge and get anyone else to watch that they can. My daughter likes the show "Reba", it has pretty obvious conservative overtones, however they never cross the line so everyone is able to enjoy the show, not just conservatives.
