    Gopdailydose only gave half the story ... ON PURPOSE.
    Link? I think you're operating on old info. What you describe is how it was when he was suspended. The current season is already in the can, so the suspension was nonsense as described in the other thread.

    And that's fine. People have a right to live their lives as religiously or non-religiously as they choose. However, they are not free to impose those beliefs directly on another. I'm not telling them they have to hide it in public. They can be like the Pharisees all they want. They aren't free,however, to use their religion as a shield to hide behind and then attempt to claim it as a basis to discriminate.

    That was what they did back then. There was no welfare system back then. Men "married" their deceased brother's wives to be able to take care of them. It is also where the Mormons started with polygamy.

    Absolutely. I'm just agreeing that the bible needs to be interpreted with the times. If it wasn't..."traditional marriage" would = a man and his concubine...or a man and his dead brother's wife. Those who claim that the definition of marriage is non-changing are simply refusing to accept the fact that even in the bible, "traditional marriage" had different definitions.

    If someone is being forced to do something against their very being they do indeed have a right to say no. That is why the re-defining of discrimination to include hurt feelings is on the path to the Supremes and currently legislation proposed to stop it. But as far as Robertson goes, he was asked about his beliefs, and he shared them he wasn't imposing them on anyone.

    That being diplomatic law, here is what I'd like to propose. Homosexuality is a ceremonial and not a moral law, given it is not a violation of anyone's rights.

    That's the sort of position those ignorant and hateful cannot present. Their toolbox of communication is missing a tool. It's a rather useful, many know of it. Some wield it like a nerf warhammer, flailing about. When you believe in things that you don't understand then you suffer. I suppose when you don't believe in things that you don't understand (but you still blurt crap about it) then you suffer too, it looks ridiculous.

    I see one man's glass-half-full is still another's empty jug with a crack in the bottom. I don't expect that to change until your boy is in office. Then suddenly deficits won't matter and slow employment growth will be considered good for holding back inflation, as long as the stock market keeps rising.


    But still, I hope fringe activist groups take note and finally understand that they're in the minority as they try to force their twisted ideology on the rest of America.
    It's far-far worse when the majority try to "force their twisted ideology on the rest of America". Trust me.

    Except he has not been re-instated, the TV shows all ready in the can (fourth season) will air but the head quacker is still suspended from further filming (fifth season).

    Should make the CONs who thought A&E was practicing poor business sense- the shows already bought and paid for will air.

    I don't trust your opinion and I'm also not sure it's any worse for all of us when the majority does rule.

    Yeah, I'm not finding any news of reinstatement out there. The situation is as it was and you describe it. Making this "suspension" meaningless, a hollow gesture, as the show is on film hiatus anyway. The family has already stated there will be no show without him, and A&E won't give up this cash cow.
