    Wrong. Instead he is on previously taped episodes

    So you should be able to call your boss and asshole and not be fired right? I mean you wouldn't want to be against free speech.

Its pretty simple.
    Just remember those beliefs of others you find to be an "abomination" there are others that feel the same way about yours. If you don't like what someone else believes, don't listen to it, don't read it, just turn the channel and stop supporting bullying and forcing others through false claims of defamation that are redefining our discrimination laws and forcing others to comply with what you/they think is acceptable. Holding a belief or an opposing view is not defamation. Tell me would you be just as outraged if Rachael Maddow who has a record of anti-Christian rants joining up with a few other lesbians to share their pro-gay views in a series while mocking the traditional views of Christians/Jewish/Muslims/Hindus on marriage? Would you consider that discrimination/defamation? I think not. One thing about most Progressives is they have one standard they expect others to live up to and another they hold themselves to.

    I agree that people have every right to hold opposing views and it does not necessarily rise to the level of defamation. That said....people also have a right to counter those opposing views. What I hear most often is people speaking out and then crying when they have to face the consequences of their speech. Everyone has a right to free speech, what they don't have a right to is the right to be free from the consequences of their speech. That is why I always say, think before you speak. If Rachel were to say something stupid and face advertiser boycotts as a result, well...that's the consequences of her speech.

    Oh wow, I didn't realize you had mind reading powers. Awesome man. You should totally go to vegas, I bet you could make some sweet cash at the poker tables with your ability to know what people are thinking.

    I mean, I thought there was a chance it could be that the source in question heard the news at the start of it coming out, when it was being presented as a full re-instatement, and then simply hadn't heard and/or updated yet that the original reports were a mistake and it was previously recorded episodes. But since you're able to read minds and can declare that they did it ON PURPOSE, I can rest easy.

    Thank you and your super powers.

    By that rationale, every place in the world has free speech since it's always about consequences. Go ahead and mock Muhammed in Iran because, short of cutting everyone tongue out, they can't prevent it and afterall, free speech is not hindered because anything that would happen to that person afterwards is just consequences of that speech.

    Misinterpreted text. Typical liberal tactic, if you don't like it strawman it.

    To each their own I supposed. One of the things I'm doing this weekend is testing 4 different custom reloads for 9mm for speed and grouping. Probably not what you would enjoy. But then I wonder how people can stomach shows like Project Runway. Or Survivor for that matter.

    Not if you are union. Collective bargaining means you can be an asshole as long as the Democrat party gets your "contribution".
