    Good thing he wasn't talking about his employer. he was giving a personal statement based on a personal question. in a personal interview. it had nothing to do with A&E.

    It was moral law in Leviticus.
    Christ fulfilled the law so the old law no longer applies.

    Oh I understand quite well. People pick and choose all the time which laws they want to obey and those they don't. History is full of cafeteria selection....Religion is full of instances where people decide yesterday's "abomination" is ok today...but others are not because they don't want them to be quite yet. Its pretty simple.

I imagine, as is often the case with the media bubble of blogs, that different sites started reading what one site said and just were reposting the same basic story...creating a situation early on where it seemed he was actually unsuspended. Note again, I first read it at Huffington Post...hardly a "right leaning" source...and they made no mention of it being pretaped episodes at the time.
    All I know is that captain America directed us to gopthedailydose.com a conservative website that touted that "A&E broke under the pressure and reinstated Phil Robertson back on their hit show, Duck Dynasty." I got the news that although he will still air in the shows already taped there are no plans to tape him in any new shows and he remains suspended, from Huffington Post.
    Gopdailydose only gave half the story ... ON PURPOSE.

    I wonder what Phil Robertson thinks about that?

    Maybe we'll hear soon.

    A lot of people who haven't been to Heaven or Hell talk about those places.

    Why do they do that?

    Political hackery.

    What Phil says about it must be very important to you.

    And Homosexuality is still a sin and perversion in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

    Funny is it not, that for thousands of years, every so often some bearded prophet or holy man has to remind us of this?

    Re: Phil Robertson returns to A&E

    Again A&E's decision as a private company.

    I think it's stupid when people organize boycotts and crap like that (unless it's against countries or companies with labour/human rights abuses) so in the end whether A&E keeps him or kicks him, makes no difference in my life.

    He's still a hateful little bastard who should show some humility mind you, but meh. Whatevs.
