    I somehow suspect the lawyers weren't that careless on what amounts to routine business practices for a TV network.
    non competes aren't worth the paper they are written on. I have fought two and won both times

    That is the difference between him and guys like Baldwin, who actually spew hatred for the sake of hating.
    Thinking others will go to hell because they don't buy into your quaint little myths and superstitions is the epitome of arrogance.

    What's offensive? In his religion, anyone who meets any of those criteria go to hell. I find that offensive. I don't think any of those (except maybe swindler and it would depend on the swindle) make you automatically an evil person.

    He's also grouping people who happen to love someone of the same gender in with greedy, drunk, slandering swindlers. I disagree with that grouping and find it offensive.
    then you are very easily offended and probably to fragile to function in society, i simply change the channel or turn the page

    But isn't belittling someone else' faith just as arrogant?

    And there you go, making the same mistake that the liberals writing the article, and those moaning about his answer say...

    First off, "HE" did nothing of the sort. I assume you know how to read something in its entirety right? Robertson was speaking back and forth with the reporter on his views based on the bible, and his beliefs in the bible. Second, he was asked a question, and answered with nothing short of what is said in the bible. So, unless you are trying to say that he wrote the bible, you are way off base here.

    Now, lastly, he did not "group" anyone in with anyone else, so far as what the bible considers a sin. See, there is no degree of what is worse in the bible, that is a man made construct, so to say that homosexuality is a sin, and so is adultery, or drunkenness, or promiscuity, is all the same in the eyes of the Lord. You find that offensive, that is your problem.

    No one is asking you to believe, or what your opinion on what their beliefs are either. They are free to believe anything they wish, as you are free not to.

    If anything, he just grouped all of us, for none of us are without sin but in need of repentance. Its how I understand it. So there goes the entire hatin redneck debacle right out of the window.

    Maybe, but I don't hide behind Christ when I do it. I freely admit that I'm an asshole to religious zealots.

    Taking another tack. How's these apples? Lets assume a homosexual believes all your Biblical nonsense. Is it not evil, actually doing violence onto him, to badger him over something intrinsic in him, a part of his being which he cannot change, saying it will send him to Hell? And, before you respond, that same Bible which casts homosexual acts as sin will also condemn you to hell for eating shellfish and a host of other things. But, yet, your arrogance lets you excuse violating those protocols while giving the Gays no quarter.

    It's ridiculous. And, that is why I say Phil is a moron hiding behind his religion.
