    Saith the simpleton.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    Peter assails the act of handing over an innocent man to godless executioners.

    Oh, the ignorance of everything and anything with the right wing religious KOOKS having to do with The United States Constitution.
    They are so upset that Mr. Phil who signed a contract with A & E to abide by certain rules, regulations and requirements they bastardize The Constitution with their claims of "violation of free speech 1st Amendment Rights".
    So once again I have to step forward and teach the uninformed dumb masses on the right the facts:

    The 1st Amendment protects citizens FROM THE GOVERNMENT limiting their speech, NOT YOUR EMPLOYER.

    I don't believe he signed a contract with A&E to keep his mouth shut about his religion nor did they foresee that he would say anything against the homosexual community. If they did then they never should have hired him in the first place. They knew what they were getting when they hired him. Seems to me they're in the wrong. I believe he has grounds for a lawsuit.

    There is a standard contract that he signed that A & E has the right to discipline him on ANYTHING he says. Same as pro sports. Same as my contract I sign with certain entities in my work. Same with stock brokers or anyone.
    Why?
    BECAUSE THEY CAN.
    As I stated before you have no rights of freedom of speech under the 1st Amendment when your EMPLOYER limits your speech. Do I have to inform you again?
    Only protections are if GOVERNMENT LIMITS your speech.
    Bottom line is he has no lawsuit. He would if he was not a milk weak wannabe ZZ Top look alike.
    A real man tells A & E TO FUCK THEMSELVES. That is what I would have done, that is what anyone that believes in what they say does.
    But not Phil Robertson. He said "Yes maam, I will be quiet and go off the show."
    A real man would be out there TODAY saying the exact same things he said in that interview.

    Now A & E is just as much at fault.
    They KNEW AHEAD OF TIME this is who he was, it is all over the place his sermons about how women are to obey the man and homosexuals are same as drunkards and such.
    They KNEW about him and took a chance.
    Called ratings = FOLDING MONEY AND LOTS OF IT.
    But enough of ducks, camo and ZZ Top beards. To me, other than the lesson on the 1st Amendment which everyone NOW knows, this is much ado about NOTHING.
    A & E can do what they want. Where the show is filmed is a RIGHT TO WORK STATE.
    Only a union loving socialist backs Robertson in this matter on "employee rights".

    But Canadians can own Americans. That's because Canadians are superior. Just ask anyone.

    If the OT is not Christianity, why is it in the Christian Bible and preached from in church?

    The only thing the bible and Constitution have in common: neither are ‘cafeteria plans,’ you can’t take what you like and reject what you don’t.
