    As for your gun analogy, your exact example has been used I believe.

    Christianity has the ability to change viewpoints, as it has on many occasions (including this one). So I do not completely indict Christianity, no.

    Of course it has been used. I did that to point out how folks on your side of the fence may take a similar remark aimed at them.

    let's not bring theology into the debate.

    as an athiest, the debate would center around the terms knowledge and religion, and how they don't relate

    Pressure and threats from GLAAD and HRC.

    Saying them all in the same breath makes it kind of hard to argue that he meant them to be taken differently



    Oh and you don't? Really? That speaks volumes.
    Obviously not exactly the same, but close enough for the entertainment company to be justified in getting rid of them both.

    You tell us, you're the one asserting to have the knowledge. And no, not all contracts have what you call "personal contract clauses".

    sure they exist. I signed one for my current job. fact is, you have no idea what is or is not in his contract with A&E. you were talking out your ass and now you are embarrassed because you've been caught with your pants down and can't back it up.

    I have no idea. I'm not the one who made any claims about it.
