    Why take the pay cut? I'm not sure a producer didn't tell him to get controversial in the GQ interview . . . but I am.

    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.
    And once again you ignore that we're talking apples and spaceships here. Bashir's job was as a political commentator. He railed against a specific political figure AT HIS JOB and the content was deemed beyond the bounds of reason. Phil's job is to make duck calls, and there is also a reality show that follows along with him. Outside his job and the reality show he gave an interview where he revealed his thoughts on a variety of matters, including his religious stance on homosexuality. It had nothing to do with his job or the reality show that follows him (unlike Bashir), Also unlike Bashir, he didn't single any individual out nor was he attacking anyone.

    Again you seem to be focusing on the debunked theory that I somehow like Palin, not to mention the inaccurate info that Phil was fired. Wake up, the producers of the reality show are having their cake and eating it too. By suspending Phil they avoid the GLAAD whining stink AND guarantee themselves higher ratings for the new season.

    Then why insist on condeming homosexuals when the old testament is obsolete?

    The myth is that the sexually immoral will skate at the Judgment.
    Then why act like a Talbian and see it as a crime in the real world?

    which is why I was dealing with generalities about how the 1964 provision make these issues more complicated.
    I was never talking about that.....and I have NO IDEA how that is relevant to personal conduct clauses.

    you came in making up bull**** pretending to have information you don't have.
    Uh....as I said, neither DO YOU.

    It remains a mystery to you that a contract actor would have personal conduct clauses in his contract. It is VERY common. Educate yourself on the subject.

The RW hypocrisy never seems to end, it seems.
    First of all, Phil never said that homosexuality was "like" Bestiality. Also, I think that what Bashir said of Palin is so much worse than what Phil Robertson said, it isn't even on the same plain of thinking.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
