    The fact that 1.4 million people would support a boycott of a network that removed somone for intolerance, proves to me one thing....It takes religion to persuade good people to support bad ideas.

    They suspended him for basically nothing.

    Maybe it takes religion to make people see the real world.

    Yea, I'm realizing that this is really an issue of A&E being intolerant of religious intolerance, which can be interpreted as A&E being intolerant of religion, or at least that's the way it will be portrayed by those that are religious.

    The reality is that, if that's the case, we should see systemic intolerance of religion on A&E, if this is indeed a case of religious intolerance, and not just a case where A&E felt that his view of homosexuallity demonstrated intolerance that just so happened to be religious in nature.

    *whew*

    Seems there is always a backlash, no matter the issue, action, or people involved. THE 64 dollah question is to what effect this backlash of which we speak...

    Did the one million mom boycott of JC Penny over hiring a lesbian comic as a spokesperson have much affect?

    How about the boycott Chik-fil-a over the anti-gay remarks by the owner?

    No and NO

    As to a false assertion.... guess that is in the eye of the be-scolder....

    No, as our language and words have a specific structure and meaning behind them that makes it clear that he was not making a comparison between gays and perpetrators of bestiality.

    This comes down to one simple issue, was Phill suspended because he is religious, or because he is intolerant?

    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.

    I'm tolerant of your religion, I'm intolerant of your intolerance.
    I am intolerant of your being intolerant of my intolerance to gays and the gay agenda.
    Basically, get over it.

    Remember when we all hated Nexflix?

    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.
