    Yes he was and he said things that A&E didn't like and had apparently spoken to him about before. To A&E it does matter who's sin he speaks about. He was HIGHLY selective on his sin venue. Most of us think first and foremost on the 10 Commandments. He seems to barely be aware of the big 10.

    I have attended several I was a sinner talks. Phil don't know the first thing about how it is done.

    Bottom line for Phil is he offended his employers and apparently he knew he was doing just that. I'd say his biggest sin was hubris.

    So, one must list every sin every time one talks about sin? Where is that written?

    Bottom line for Phil is he offended his employers and apparently he knew he was doing just that. I'd say his biggest sin was hubris.
    I'd say he doesn't really care if he offended his employers, but that would be a guess.

    Now you quibble, he didn't even cover the big 10.... not sure how only male prostitutes are a sin, or 'swindlers' who many would call sharp businessmen or those who settled the West, have to wonder how not killing/murder didn't make it, face it, he forgot he wasn't preaching in his church, grinding his own axe about the world.

    I'd say your guess is incorrect, he has issued an apology, well more like an attempt to justify his comments so he must care a bit.

    Where did he say he listed all the sins?

    Care to post the apology?

    She taught me to mind my mouth, something you should have learned.

    Phil could have said many things that didn't cast judgement, he could of focused on his life of sin instead of commenting on other people and their lifestyle. He could have been honest about the pre-civil rights south and just how 'happy' black folks were...

    or he could have just kept his big mouth shut.
    He quoted the Bible. He never casted judgement on anyone.

    This isn't judging? really?

    question: "What, in your mind, is sinful?"

    “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians:

    “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

    He was asked what he thought was sinful. He answered. He paraphrased Corinthians and listed a variety of sins, not just homosexuality. Was the correct answer instead, "I don't think there is such a thing as sin"?

    And if a show member of a Christian show said that he felt Christianity leads to a person being controlled and leads to fascism, would you also support him if he were fired? It's funny that so many Christians led the march against stores saying "happy holidays" and the majority of Christians seemed to support the boycotts. Amazing how hypocrisy works doesn't it?

    So he never casted judgement saying those type of people wouldn't get into heaven?

    Why don't you show me an example of an actor on a Christian show saying that Christianity leads to fascism, and then I'll think about it. In the meantime, you seem to be saying that a majority of Christians are hypocrites. I'm sorry if you feel this way and can only hope that you don't base such an opinion on flimsy hypotheticals.
