    If you are fired for a sharing a belief, and that belief is protected, then the issue gets slightly more murky then what you just painted.
    I was curious about this myself. Since he was merely stating his religious belief could he file charges of discrimination against A&E?

    That's right, and the rebound is coming. The GLAAD folks look like whiney fools and the show will continue, with Phil, next season. A&E will probably give some sort of award for the increased ratings.

    Obama is highly educated, brilliant and president of the US and some people still call him a nigger. It's not the same thing.

    He was fired for saying things on company time that might cost the company money.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    That was a deplorable thing to say and he paid the price for it. Same for the Duck dude.
    Saying that you prefer a vagina over an anus is deplorable?!?

    This is whiney nonsense... why does heterosexuality and a religious viewpoint offend so strongly?

    you are speculating. you don't know what his contractual obligations were, and you don't have a clue what this decision will do financially.

    It's justice then that A & E will likely lose the show.

    But not because Haymarket doesn't dig his show. Yes?
