    I think they are too...even on a woman. BUt, I'm lucky. I don't have to deal with being Gay, and somehow finding a way to live in harmony with people who think like Phil Robertson.

    I think A&E already bent over backwards here by only suspending him. It's pretty clear they are hoping it blows over. Had the moron simply stated a minimalist comment about him not agreeing with the gay lifestyle because it is a sin--and, also left alone that weird the Japanese have no Jesus and Blacks never sang the Blues until after MLK stirred em all up thang--he would have been back on the set next season.

    Quite possible.
    Just because you are saying something from the bible does not mean you are proselytizing. if you are talking to other Christians you are not trying to convert anyone, they are already converted

    Again, where were your cries of "Censorship" when Martin Brashir was being drummed off MSNBC?

    Anyone in the USA who thinks that they can say whatever they want to say and there will be no response or negative replies is living in a dream world.

    The man said what he wanted to say, now he's paying a price for that.

    No. Never heard a word about them. But, then again I don't have broadcast television, just the internet--and, my wife's idea of a reality TV is that Top Chef show. Me. I don;t watch any of that reality crap...but I do sort of like Lillyhammer.



    That being said, I did watch a few Dusk Dynasty episodes the other day. It's a pretty good show--A+ for reality, IMO.

    A&E Warned Robertson to watch his mouth and he ignored that warning.

    I have zero sympathy for the guy, he has shown with his comments that he's a hater.He has brought this on himself.

    Here's what got Phil Robertson in trouble:http://www.businessinsider.com/when-...ending-2013-12

    Robertson is out of touch with most American's attitudes about a number of things.

    And the cries of "censorship" for that PR woman who just got fired for her offensive tweet? where are they?

    Oh that is the biggie, throw in practice ALL the parts, not just a select few. Ol' Phil seemed quite selective, and apparently he has done this on more than one occasion, just the first time for so large an audience.

    Preach about YOUR OWN sin, not others... someone who has sinned as much as he should just stick to telling his story and not look into the lives of others.

    More than enough material there....

    I beleive it's his intent to spread the word of god....his life is basically dedicated to that. That's proselytizing.
