    You must really hate the moderators on this board. They are censoring you with every post. You can't write whatever you want here (which in my opinion is a good thing after having been on boards that brag about "free speech" but end up turning into troll forums, with nasty insults in every post.)

    If Robertson had been censored, we never would have read the remarks.

    Robertson WAS censored by A&E on the show itself; they had restrictions on what they could say as part of the show. Yet no one is fuming about that (including me - A&E's show, their rules)

    That's the way that the 1st Amendment works.

    No one gets to run their mouth in the USA without response (Often negative.) from those who disagree with what they have said.

    I just read this article where the Cracker Barrel removed some products with Phil's face. I'm surprised they hadn't done this earlier to stimulate appetite...lol

    You know as a country folk you done bad when the Crackers are against you.

    I couldn't care less how long you wait. Your post contains the essence of the BS that's plaguing the left on this issue.

    I don't hold out any hope that you'd have the ability to decern my words any differently than the many others who have tried, but he was asked what sin was, and he answered.

    Adding in words that don't exist is only the food by which you and others gather the intellectual nutrition you've become addicted to.

    Well, everything he said was in the bible somewhere....sounds like proselytizing to me...required by his religion.

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

    Keep up? You said you can say anything and not get fired. You didn't say a word about on the job or not on the job.

    It is censorship if you are being punished for what you say.

    That's simply a guess on your part.

    Censorship is also being punished for saying what you say. Responding to what is said is not the same as punishing those that say it.

    And you agree to allow them to do that when you sign up.

    Not at all. Pay is great, expectations are reasonable...can't think of anything I'd rather do all day.
