    Maybe, maybe not.
    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.

    I don't see where he's saying that. He's standing up for a business that made a business decision - as I did.

    I really couldn't give a good hot damn if they canned him for not shaving. They have an obligation to uphold their own ideals as they see fit.

    you missed the first quote from him, i commented on....here it is..."1.4 million bible thumpers, bigots and rednecks showing their support for the hatred of gays. Why would anyone be surprised?"

    i am simply stating liberals are bigots too.

    But we agree that whoever we're talking about has to deal with the consequences of those actions, agreed? Like many others, I think intolerance in the guise of religion is abhorrent. We live in a free society that generally supports the rights of consenting adults (humans, I can't believe I have to say this, but if I don't I'll get some ignorant example involving animals).

    Can A&E's intolerance be equated with that of Chick-fil-A? I don't think so....

    Watchout for the hypocrisy alert boys and girls...lol!
    Where is the hate? Is bible thumper a derogatory term? Is redneck a derogatory term, or is it the context in which it's used?

    Easy enough to do as I doubt there are any Citgo's left. And let's not mention ALL major refineries bought Chavez oil to sell to Americans. But it does show that most boycotts are symbolic at best...

    I think so. As EB has stated above, the religious right doesn't own the rights to intolerance. Far from it.

    disapproval does not equal hate, if that was so we would have to say liberals hate everyone but themselves
