    so there message of tolerance is false.......and are bigots against people who dont share their ideas.
    The bottom line is that is was in their best interest of a business to sever ties with a public figure that they employ who made bigoted and hateful statements. Maybe Chick fil a will hire him.

    Not that I'm sticking up for the "left", but when someone shows intolerance for someone elses free choices and then disguises their contempt in the guise of religion, then acts all but-hurt when people condemn them, then I'd say that the person/s that make those statements shouldn't be surprised when people react negatively. I don't condone the ridicule from those that oppose Phil's statements, but in some respects I understand it.

    The problem is that once a person chalks up their ideas to their religion or more specifically in our culture, Christian religion, that statements made are suddenly free from scrutiny. Sorry, but if you say something intolerant of peoples free choices, you should accept the responsibility for those statements and not hide behind the unprovable assertions of a religion.

    Now don't misunderstand, I'm not advocating censorship at a societal level, anyone is free to share their opinions, but just like beleive that a church shouldn't be forced by law to marry a gay couple, A&E is free to hire and release people whose views are intolerant of others.

    If I posted on facebook that I thought blacks or women were inferior and my company found out about that comment and it was reported in the paper or on the news, then keeping me employed, that is, taking no action to remove me is viewed as support for my comments which are, but cultural definition, racist sexist and in both cases intolerant.

    Apparently you are choosing to ignore the backlash showing that it wasn't in their best interest to fire someone over a false assertion.

    I support anyone's right to have whomever they wan't for whatever reason. I also support a network who ****cans a public figure that they employ who makes asinine statements about gays.

    one thing in a free society is that one citizen does not have to like another citizen or what they do.

    My statement has to do with .."all people can be bigoted".....the idea that one group is totally understanding of all points of view, ..is nonsense.

    A&E takes it in the shorts:

    The overnight ratings are in for Duck Dynasty. One week ago, DD topped all of cable’s ratings with 8.885 million viewers. Last night, they free fell down the list to 2.521 million viewers.

    That is a drop of 6.364 million viewers, or 71.6%.

    I'm sure that the backlash will be overwhelming and that A & E will be shaking in their boots. In six months no one's gonna remember this and tuning back into Intervention and storage wars.
