    No, but it does show inconsistency on both sides. The same people that are outraged by this, weren't outraged by those on the left that have been fired for speaking their mind and beliefs.

    I have no problem with someone holding the opinion that someone shouldn't be fired for speaking their belief as long as it is consistent. Likewise I have no problem with those that believe a company has the right to fire someone if their speak harms the company. I just think incredible biasness gets in the way when its someone on the left or right that does it and there are people on both sides that are hypocrites about it.

    Depends on your definition of "hiding". If someone uses their religion as an excuse to attack gays, they're hiding behind it as they take their pot shots much like they would a rock. Phil speaks as if he has no mind of his own but rather is simply a puppet of the words written in the Bible.

    That's cowardly, IMO.

    It's saying, "Homosexuals are evil sinners. But, that's not me saying it; it's the Bible."

    You don't call that "hiding"?

    Sure point them out and I'll comment on them if it makes you happy. Now if you'll post showing your support for Bashir being able to comment, that will prevent you from being a hypocrite.

    What do you know about Robertson?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    He said the most loving thing anyone could say, and citing words of the Bible is acknowledging the authority of the living God. The alternative would be to say " I don't care, go to hell".
    That is the difference between him and guys like Baldwin, who actually spew hatred for the sake of hating.

    The most loving thing he could say was that he couldn't comprehend how a guy could like another guy's butthole? Give me a break.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
