    Ok...So? That is not equating the two directly, that is speaking of the selfish manner of man right? To come in here and say that Phil said that homosexuality was akin to "****ing a duck" as someone has on this very board, is a lie. You just confirmed it.

    1. When you say this: "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 differences between "morph" and "like" aren't really relevant. Unless you want to split hairs. In which case, I can argue that what he said is worse.

    2. Of course you do. I expect no different.

    Not trying to be insulting here, but just how the hell would you know? You speak for all Christians now?

    He absolutely did NOT say that. This is an outright fabrication.



    Bashir was never fired. He went on at MSLSD for 2 weeks, and resigned.



    When you get the comment right first, then you can argue whether or not A&E made the right move. But so far you are not accurately portraying what it was that Phil Robertson said in his answer to the question.
    I agreed with MSNBC's decision to get rid of Brashir. I already said that.

    The question is not about IF she would have her contract terminated......the question was HOW a corporation could terminate the contract. The point still stands that a corporation almost always has personal conduct clauses with its contract actors.....giving them the right to terminate said contract.

    I hve no idea why you think you can turn our debate into something else.

    let's break this down:

    You ~ I know for a fact he violated his contract
    Absolutely false, I never said I know for a fact such a clause exists in his contract.....BUT.....I would be VERY surprised if it did not. As i keep trying to convince you, IT IS A VERY COMMON CLAUSE INCLUDED THESE DAYS, IT IS STANDARD ISSUE.

    me ~ you have seen the contract?

    you ~ no. why? have you?

    me ~ shakes head. turns attention to someone more deserving.
    You were all about the "how" of terminating a contract, and agreed with me when I said it would be the same for the Ducky or Ellen.

    Now you want to move on.....fine by me.....I would too if I were in your shoes.

    I think the real irony on this story that nobody has said is that the new unwritten rule of Christianity is don't ask, don't tell.

    you Christians can keep your backwards beliefs in regards to homosexuality. that's your right. you just can't tell anyone about them anymore.



    and i'm sorry to laugh at you, because I think it's bad policy and only further divides people. but that is exactly how this is beginning to play out.

    but as an atheist, I would be lying if I didn't say a part of me doesn't kind of like to see it. It's like the smoking bans that went on. I disagreed, I fought vocally against it, but it helped me personally.

    He was saying that these things are all sins, not that they are all the same...Good grief...Yours is a perfect example of how GLAAD distorted this.

    Oh and you don't? Really? That speaks volumes.

I believe this show is indicative of that sad trend and I would add t he Kardashians, the Housewives, Honey Boo, and lots of other reality shows to it.

    As to your comment about them being rich and I am not - I am doing very well thank you. And their income means nothing to me either way and in no way shape or from indicates the quality of their show or product.

    If money is all that is important there are some women who work nights near a truck stop that I sometimes gassed up at coming home late from the legislature and based on what they said they wanted - they must have taken in at least $500 to 800 a night for what some others do for free . I guess three or four grand a week is good money to some and if all you care about is money it certainly buys lots of mouthwash.
    Well, let's face it, half the outrage isn't his comments, but rather his religion. If he was a Muslim, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.
