    Then he had his difficult decade..
    Choices--we all live with the aftermath of our choices .
    Then he found Jesus, gave up booze and pills, got a master's degree and became a millionaire.
    Sweet!

    That would be 'your' opinion.
    no, having - and expressing bigoted beliefs - is what makes one a bigot

    It was a set-up from the git-go.
    I also have to believe Phil 'knew' where that interview was going and intentionally used it as a platform to reach that particular audience who would likely not be familiar with the show or Christian teachings. Genius fisher of men

    what part of "speculation" =/= fact is so hard for you to understand? I'm not the one speculating about his contract and then claiming that I know for a fact the reason he was suspended.

    FWIW, I'm making no claims whatsoever that you are right or wrong. only that you cannot know "for a fact" he was suspended for violating his contract.

    An honest answer would suffice.

    You were making out like it made you happy to see Phil removed from the show due to his religious beliefs. I took that fact out of the equation.
