    Yeah, so? That is not the on show on the A & E network.
    So...stop acting like Robertson committed a crime. He has an opinion; he expressed it; you don't like it; welcome to the real world.

    Like it, or not, not everyone is going to be ok with homosexuality. Pressuring people to remain silent about their negative views of homosexuality is no different than pressuring gays to remain silent about being gay.

    Phil? You mean the guy who never saw Blacks being mistreated throughout all his years of living in the Jim Crow South? Yeah, he's credible

    Phil has every right to say any stupid thing he wants. No crime. And A&E can fire him, rehire him and promote him all they want to. And, gays can boycott if they want to. And, anyone can watch or not watch the Dynasty thing as much or as little as they choose to as well.

    Like it, or not, not everyone is going to be ok with homosexuality. Pressuring people to remain silent about their negative views of homosexuality is no different than pressuring gays to remain silent about being gay.
    Being "OK" with homosexuality should not really be the issue. Hell, I'm not "OK" with it. But, I'm not going to tell Homosexuals that they are sinners who will be sent to hell unless they start ****ing girls either. They are what they are, and not by choice. It's thier lot in life to be attracted to the same sex. THat, to me, sounds like quite a burden already.

    But Christians also claim everyone sins. Why is the specific sin they are referencing important? I mean, unless you have some odd obsession with homosexuality. It is just one of many sins.

    How sad.

    He answered a question of a specific time period about his personal experience. He made no such comparison.

    Name the actual source and provide the clause you say exists, or stop with the absurdities.

    It takes a lot of head burying in the sand to have missed Blacks being mistreated in Louisiana back in the 50's and early 60's.

    Unless you lived in an extremely simple living, rural area.

    That is your assumption.
    By his own experience - Not where he lived.

    If a Christian got up in my face and called me a sinner, I'd punch him in his. Instantly.

    I guess, I just have a hard time with some religious whackjob accusing anyone of being a sinner, regardless what the supposed sin happens to be.
