    Yeah, well what you're failing to notice are the differences between the two cases that make them nothing like one another. It's not even apples and oranges, it apples and spaceships.

    So he has to live up to your definition of what an adult is.

    I think he likes his definition just fine.

    What does the type of show have to do with anything?

    They are talking to A&E right now. A&E will decide which is better for them.
    they have been bothered by the decision, which is completely opposite of how you characterized their response.

    so if you read it, and still ****ed it up, what's your malfunction exactly?

    Um, A&E (or whoever produces the show and has the hiring contract on said cast member) has full power to hold said cast member to WHATEVER said cast member agreed to in the contract. This is standard stuff. If the corporation determines damage has been done, it is their prerogative to terminate the contract....and cast member can hire a lawyer and fight the termination.

    If you want to know what the contractor found that damaged the brand, ask them.

    Speak for yourself. The whole basis for the story is Phil Robertson quoting the Bible (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) and saying that homosexuality is a sin.

    Interesting spin.

    Both are idiots who made stupid comments that ended up getting them pulled from their respective networks. No real difference.

    the same reason comedy central shouldn't be held to the same standard as fox news..

    not to mention, Bashir said what he said on the show itself. making it completely different events. so different only a partisan hack would attempt to link them.

    I think you need to read it again.

    Do you not know what a press release is?

    Do they seemed concerned about the show in that press release?

    They are disappointed Phil was suspended for his comments on his beliefs, but where do you get they are concerned about the gay community being up in arms?

    Plenty of people promoting open-marriages out there.
    Hey, if you'd like a thread on "the Bible and shacking up" I'll be glad to participate. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (the same verse that Phil Robertson quoted for homosexual sin) applies to that also.
