    9.) nothing i said was proven wrong, not one thing, nor did i make any assumptions what so ever that was you
    10.) he did in fact equate them, again the definition of the word equate factually proves that
    11.) no i was not i simply said he made a compassion between the two which he factually did but as you can see in 10 even though i didnt assert that he factually did equate them.

    equate
    : to treat, represent, or regard as equal, equivalent, or comparable
    Equate - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    he did treat them, represent them and regard them as comparable sins

    once again FACTS and a LINK prove your statement wrong, your mistake AGAIN

    let me know when you have ANY FACTS at all even ONE fact that proves he did not make a compassion between them and equate them because the fact remains he did.
    Wrong.

    Nothing I said was wrong, as I knew what was being argued. You showed you didn't know.

    Are sins are comparable, because they are grouped together as being sins.

    Who said all? We are discussing Phil Robertson here. But it isn't uncommon knowledge that married households make more money in general then unmarried households, and an intact family of any income strata is better off than one that isn't.

    The whole absurd idea of marrying only after you have discovered yourself is in part leading to the instability of marriage, and certainly hasn't helped with the rise of single parent households:

    Also, sorry, I should have been more clear: I am speaking to you from Earth. I sometimes forget you aren't from around here.

    On that note though, is it OK for rich old men to marry 15-year olds?
    I don't think it is healthy, no. For one I think you would be getting into ephebophilia territory, but also raising children is a job for the young and vibrant. You need to be able to chase your gleefully laughing child around the house. Old men marrying young women lead to even older men raising children. Nothing about such a union would be as it should be.

    You are honestly arguing Phil meant 16 year old boys marrying 16 year old girls while he's lecturing to middle aged men?

    Is spin to the point of being disingenuous a sin to Christians?
    Yes I do, since Phil and his wife met when they were teenagers and that is what he was talking about.

    You are simply engaging in projection here it seems.

    By all means though if you disagree simply feel free to post any facts or links that make your two false statements true, we'd love to read them.

    His suspension has already shown a great loss of viewership and an outpouring of support.
    What remains to be seen is if this continues.

    He was lecturing about the benefits of marrying 15 and 16 year old girls, as opposed to 20 year old one, to a room full of middle aged men. Somehow, I don't see that applying to teenagers marrying each other.

    But, keep spinning that broken record, Baby. I love seeing religious types lie their asses off to promote their pet causes and defend their degenerate heroes.

    Endorsement of his comments happens like this, and only like this, "we endorse what he said in so-and-so interview or speech." Or if they want to make sure, they say, "we do not endorse what he said in so-and-so interview or speech." And then because of that, doing the following of also suspending him and removing him from the show, and from the show next season. Because if they pretend they are against his views, but continue to make money because of him, knowingly and on purpose, they are hypocrites and completely full of it.

    This is completely different from suspending him and then keeping him in the show, planning to show the next season with him in it, and running not one but so far two DD marathons since it happened.

    Maybe she doesn't know that Phil wasn't always an old man with a beard.
