    The thing is that everybody has made up their mind on this. If you think gays are people too, you think it was right. If you think gays are the spawn of Satan, you've already decided that A&E is violating the First Amendment.

    And you are not providing anything that we do not already know. That is not a comparison. He was talking about sins.
    Do you really not understand the difference?
    But way to leave off that it was a response to a question as to what he thought was sinful.
    Like that isn't dishonesty. D'oh!

    Clearly you are wrong, and are ignoring context. Just as you were ignoring the backlash.
    In context, it was in reply to a question about what he thought was sinful, that you dishonestly forgot to mention.

    Then they are seeing things, or are just plain stupid as no such comparison was made.
    What was said is that they were sins. Which is true.

    No I didn't. Pay attention.
    It still remains a backlash which was clearly different that what you presented and was clearly being ignored by you.

    For all you know She will issue a statement saying she was mislead to believe he equated something he did not equate, and then reverse her previous decision. That would be the only appropriate course of action knowing what we now know.

    You seem to have left out those who think gays are people but believe A&E was wrong in their decision.

    It will blow over, and I suspect they will come out stronger in the end. Yes they may lose some southern Christians, but I suspect they will gain viewers in the LGBT crowd. Like I said, A&E could sell DD to CMT, reap the windfall, make new shows that cater to their audience and everyone wins.
    A&E started a show with a bunch of southerners and now people are surprised that they are Christian and not really gay friendly. Gee, how did they miss that?

    Ok, first off Phil isn't fired, he was suspended. They already have 9 out of the 10 shows this season filmed so at most he will be missing from 1 show, and by the time they need to film it, most likely this all will have blown over and he will have apologized for comparing gays to bestiality and implying blacks had it great back in the Jim Crow South.

    He was not suspended because he is a Christian, or because he believes that homosexuality is a sin. He was suspended because he compared it to beastiality which is highly offensive. Two adult men or women in a consensual relationship is not the same thing as a guy raping his German Shepard. It is not, and no one other than a total bigot would see it that way. I don't think Phil is a bad guy, he is obviously a nice guy and very religious. That does not change the fact he said something that was highly offensive and any employer would have probably fired any of us had we said something similar in an interview with the local paper.

    Here is the quote:

    “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 tells reporter Drew Magary. “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.”

    Even Karl with his limited intellect in the movie Sling Blade was able to phrase that one without being offensive:

    "The Bible says two men ought not lay together. But I don't reckon the Good Lord would send anybody like you to Hades."

    There is no war in this country against Christianity. However, most people are not willing to tolerate someone using their religion as an excuse for saying offensive and bigoted things. Purported Christians doing things like comparing gays to dudes that rape an animal do more damage to Christianity in this country than a million cashiers telling you "Happy Holidays"..

    I don't see how everyone doesn't see it that way. What happened to common decency? That is really what this is all about. You would not think such a concept would be controversial.

    Yeah I don't either but then religion is really powerful. It makes people do and say all kinds of things they never would without it. It can be really scary, the things people will do thinking it pleases their god, which is not at all just a criticism of Christianity.
