    We know that the overwhelming majority of Christian sects are intolerant of homosexually.

    How do we know this? How many stories are there about churches that refuse to allow gay marriages, parishioners, pastors ect....

    Does the Church marry Divorcees? How about liars, thieves and adulterers? But being homosexual get's special condemnation (again by most, not all, of Christianity). This is intolerance fueled by religious dogma.

    The rest of us find this kind of intolerance destructive and worthy of our ridicule....

    You are free to your thoughts, you are free to your religion, but you aren't free to hoist your intolerance, religious or otherwise upon society and get a free pass just because you do so in the name of your religion.

    I'm tolerant of your religion, I'm intolerant of your intolerance.
    Nothing he said was intolerant.

    He said that he does not judge anybody, loves everybody and he will let God sort it out.

    That does not sound like intolerance to me.

    'Boycott A&E' Facebook Support Page for Phil Robertson Gets over 1M Likes
    An action that will never get my support, not only is he anti-gay but he is also a bit of a racist and those 2 things do not sit well with me.

    Also, the republicans were able to pour billions into the presidential race because "corporations are people". Well, that makes A&E people as well with all the civil rights that go with it and their opinion is much more acceptable IMHO than the opinions of Phil. They do not like anti-gay slurs and good for them. I hope there will be a facebook like for A&E, something I will click on and like.

    Huh... what's not grammatically correct about it either way?
    Let's not forget you originally stated it was being used as a verb ... so you lecturing me on what's pathetic is amusing.

    A&E does not say Robertson isn't allowed to have bigoted opinions or thoughts, they disapprove of him making them in GQ.

    A&E has the right to disagree with someone who makes bigoted statements because they do not have the same narrow minded points of view.

    A&E also has the right to sever ties with someone like that. They do not say he cannot make bigoted statements in the future but they will not be showing a show with him on their network.

    Not at all. It is exactly what is happening.

    A&E is in the wrong. He did not make a comparison.
    A&E is wrong for terminating him for honestly answering a question.


    An no, it isn't bigoted.

    Yes, and on the TMZ site I voted that to be hypocritical. A&E are being incredibly hypocritical for doing that.

    A+E Networks (parent company of A&E made up of the Hearst company and Disney) owns A&E and the rights to DD. But who cares? Why find some insignificant point out of all of what I wrote? Just to call me out?....Congraz.

    Let's see how that works out for A&E. Sucking up to the reach-around crowd may end up costing the network money.
