    Well, we're batting 1000 here. The other time you quoted me this morning, I asked what you were talkin' about.

    When Christian BS has been wiped out of the government and Christians are a 10% minority, then those idiots can spew all the crap they want. Why? Because it will not have institutional backing.

He says 1 thing about homos and it's suddenly cause for debate.
    Apparently A&E agree with you. By suspending him, they initiated a debate.

    Actually, no, look at what he said: ďBut hey, sin: Itís not logical, my man. Itís just not logical.Ē ďStart with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,Ē he said. ďBestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.Ē (Duck, Duck, Homophobe? ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Phil Robertson SLAMMED As ‘Vile’ After He Declares A Vagina ‘Would Be More Desirable Than A Man)

    So what he said was just ridiculous and downright bigoted.

    All I'm saying is we should have a little bit of consistency here. If A&E were to fire a homosexual for saying something homosexual in a non-related magazine, wouldn't everyone lose their ****?
    Itís all starting to make sense to me now.

    Iíve always been told people that cheat are more concerned others would cheat on them. Those that lie are quicker to assume things told to them are lies.

    I think the same thing is happening here.

    I have never agreed with the need for laws preventing employers from discriminating on anything they want. If you are full blown racist, discriminate based on racism. I just donít see a systemic problem arising from such a thing any longer. Our society has advanced enough to tolerate all kinds of viewpoints.

    Liberals seem quick to punish people with opposing views. They must think a systemic problem could come about, and it is easy to see why as they seem to want to punish people strongly for holding different views. You say something they donít like, they will go for your job and your lively hood. So it is only natural they would seek laws to protect them from others acting exactly like they are prone to act.

    Not really, no. Only if the employee was protected from such in their contract.

    His intolerance is OK. But "leftist intolerance" is bad.

    You only dislike intolerance when it's intolerant of intolerant views you happen to agree with. Merry Christmas indeed.

    Well, no. A&E responded to the debate and the reaction to it they got.

    Careful... if you go and tell them hillfolk that intolerance is ok sometimes, they'll start stringin' up gays. They don't really get the concept, it's dangerous.

    But Mr. Invisible, just take white trash culture and morph out from there -- incest, retardation, eating the livers of little children. It can be a slope every bit as slippery as his!
