    Yes, that is what I am saying. I would rather they abstain from sex until marriage and get married in their 20s, but we aren't discussing what I think would be ideal.

    There is something to be said for marrying young, though, since the older you get the more locked in your ways you become and the harder it gets to find someone to share your life with. If you marry young, you will develop your personality with the person you will be living the rest of your life with. There is something to said for marrying your high school sweetheart.



    Same could be said for getting married at any age.



    Your life's true pleasures, and the path to true happiness, reside in the lifelong commitments.
    Please remember you are talking about 50 years ago in Louisiana and not now in Los Angeles.

    It was a very different world then.

Handlers, do not sign the contract, the talent does and they need to temper their comments so as to not damage their employers.

    The bottom line is that these types of clauses are common and if one were not in place, A & E would not have taken action against Phil.
    100% CORRECT

    im late to the party and catching up thanks to you! lol no it was thanks to me but yes contracts often have moral or conduct or PR or reflective clauses in them. SO when an employee says controversial things or in this case bigoted and offensive things it can have repercussions.

    His look evolved over time. Just as the Phil's has.

    And the look did exist before Willie's.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    He was speaking of sins.
    It seems that bigoted people have a problem with what sins are.
    With this comparison theory of theirs I wonder if GLAAD is upset Phil Robertson said all gays were drunks and promiscuous. I can't remember all the other sins he listed.

    Supposedly there was a representative from A&E at the interview and they knew what he said but they didn't get upset until GLAAD threatened to go to the sponsors.

    What does that say about A&E?

    Again, how long do you think it takes to grow a beard like that?

    Obviously they had the beards when the show was pitched to A&E or A&E wouldn't have bought it.

    Really, you have replied to the same posts over and over again trying to convince calamity she is wrong. If she would just learn to read and comprehend, yes life would be much simpler.

    Have you read the history behind the the DD show? Or...even about the show that Phil had on a sports channel?

    They should have pulled the Christmas marathon if they did not want to be associated with Phil. All damage is by their own hypocrisy.
