    Going off of their statement where they reference him being fired for something that is constitutionally protected, they might be thinking about suing out of their contract.

    That you can't see the difference between the two is on you and obviously due to your own misguided bias.
    Taken in it's proper context, Brashir simply suggested that Palin had no idea how horrible slavery was as an institution, and that if she really thinks it is nothing more than the national Debt, maybe someone should give her a Darby Treatment. Similarly, Phil said pussy beats ass, and anyone who doesn't buy into that is well on their way to ****ing a duck.

    Both are outrageous comments that got them fired. I at least agree both are outrageous comments that should get them fired. You, not so much, preferring to fire the person making the comment you did not like while preserving the job of the guy who said what you do like. That defines hypocrisy.

    A&E is a corporation,...it is not the public square.

    they can hire or fire people.

    as a citizen i can say anything i want about another citizen, as long as i dont threaten or slander.

    all your telling me is you wish to silence people you disagree with.

    man. the way some of you quickly start lying and making **** up when your debate goes south is rich
    As I said...personal conduct clauses....ARE VERY COMMON. Do you think that the producers canned him, violated the contract.....without cause?

    Dream on.

    ps - it is a fact that contracts for employment have higher standards then other private contracts. you missed that point
    Uh...duh...I think the "higher standards" (of conduct) is the point.

    I have no idea why you think he would not have conduct clauses in his contract.

    So you reject the old testament?

    What's the difference between you and those who support adultery?
    One cannot support adultery, it is not a political or social construct that one can "support".

    It is an action based on a personal decision.

    And the difference between you and me is: I can enjoy sex! I am European, sex is national sport. Whilest you condem those who enjoy it on the basis of bronze age myths.

    He had other things to say but here's what he said that references 1 Corinthians 6:9-10:

    “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,” the 67-year-old patriarch told GQ. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

    Robertson did try to quote Corinthians. He ALSO talked about genitalia, and ALSO talked about never seeing blacks being mistreated in pre-Civil Rights Louisiana.

    As for 1 Corinthians, the Bible is quite disgusting here. This is the same letter that says:

    "For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head. A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man." 1 Corinthians 11:6-7

    and

    "Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church." 1 Corinthians 14:34-35

    Closer or not, there are groups out there who want to legalize both and more.
