    He went further than that. You're either spinning or you don't know the facts. But, your post is not the whole truth.

    Here's the direct quote:
    “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical…Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

    It's just a stupid pointless rant. I prefer a vagina over an anus too. But so the F what? IMO, he's an idiot.

    You are talking about private contract law in civil court, not federal civil rights. No one forces you to agree to a contract, if the contract says your making homophobic comments breaks the contract...well there you are. Your "rights" were never violated, you were free to say ANYTHING you wanted....BUT.....that in no way stops a private contract from being terminated.

    No spin, you're somehow invested in making a false equivilence and thus will ignore any reality that gets in your way. Bashir was a political commentator that went ape**** on the air railing personally against a political figure. Phil is a comedic reality show star who gave an interview to a magazine and expressed his religious beliefs. These things are nothing whatsoever like one another.

    homophobic remarks aren't protected under the civil rights act of 1964.

    in term of employment, the employer does not have the same rights as he does in private affairs.

    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?
    I'm sure the family prays for things that mean very little to them

    /snicker.

    Nonsense. You're splitting hairs.

    He said this, it got him tossed off the show.

    That sentence applies to both participants. You just like what Duck Boy said about gays better than the Brit's comments about Sister Sarah.

    Non-sequitur...I never said they were. Hate speech is not protected speech. Yelling fire in a theater is not protected speech.......so what? That has nothing to do with private contracts.

    in term of employment, the employer does not have the same rights as he does in private affairs.
    Uh...whut? Contracts can and do have all sort of conduct clauses.

    You just are not understanding this.....at all.

    Show me where the words Phil used appear in the Bible.
    “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes!

    I'd love to see that quote.

    this isn't simply a private contract. this is a contract for employment, which does have higher standards.
