    That's not true...it's only unconstitutional if the government does it. If it's someone else, it's still censorship....while not illegal, still a violation of a basic human right.

    So by commenting about gays he was trying to convert gays to Christianity, when many if not most in the US are already Christian?

    Since it was an interview it was more of his opinion based on his religion rather then an attempt at proselytism.

    Either way it I expect broke the clauses within his contract with A&E

    He was not censored, he was and still is able to say what ever he likes. Just like you, or anyone else in the US. He was suspended from his job at A&E over it, but he is still free to speak his mind. Anyone who is going to make comments that will negatively effect their employer will most likely lose their job

    A teacher at a Christian school, (in which the school is against gay marriage) who is publically supporting gay marriage is most likely going to lose their job. I do recall that a gay teacher lost his job because he was going to get married (he was a teacher at a catholic school)

    I also recall the letter from a CFO ( I believe the story is fake but conservatives loved it) in which he stated all those with Obama bumper stickers were going to be laid off. Free speech is still strong in the US, but it does not mean that you are not going to face consequences for what you say.

    If he simply said it was a sin, he'd probably be OK today. It was the rant about homosexuals--you know, the vagina versus the anus part--and, then him adding in that bit about Blacks being happier before civil rights which A&E could not abide.

    Bull****.

    You have no idea what A&E was thinking.

    I don't have a problem with the vagina versus anus part, that's just stating facts.

    It cheapens the human relationship. It's not like I'm married to my wife for only her vagina...so, I can see why it's an insult to say gay people are in a relationship for nothing other than the asshole.

    No one said vagina or anus was the most important thing. Just that vagina is better and that's a fact.
