What I find interesting, having read about this non-news worthy subject all day, is that a majority of the people complaining about the intolerance of one man's responses are, in the same breath, being intolerant of the people objecting to what Robertson said. They say the gays and their supporters are intolerant for not being silent and just accepting robertson's words, but when the shoe is on the other foot, they won't practice what they preach. They get all up in arms and start fighting back at whatever gay supporters say, because it offends their delicate sensibilities.
The man said what he said. I don't believe it was bigoted, homophobic or racist. I simply believe what he said was based in ignorance. Homosexuality does not "morph" into bestiality or promiscuity. It's a silly thing to say, which is why I say his answers were only ignorant and not bigoted/homophobic. He has his faith. I am all for that and I'm not going to skewer him just because he doesn't understand the homosexual attraction.
Having said that, I still believe A&E has the right to fire and hire who they desire. I mean, a lot of people object to ENDA and believe businesses should be able to fire gays and others for whatever reasons they believe valid. This is no different.
