    "First they say, 'There is no God. Get him out of your mind,'" Robertson says in the speech. "Then they bow down to birds, animals and reptiles, and each other. And the first thing you see coming out of them is gross sexual immorality. They will dishonor their bodies with one another, degrade each other. Uh, is that going on in the United States of America? Look around. God's not there ... And boy is there some immorality going on around here. Does it get worse?"

    "Women with women, men with men, they committed indecent acts with one another, and they received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions," he continued. "They're full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil. That's what you have 235 years, roughly, after your forefathers founded the country. So what are you gonna do Pennsylvania? Just run with them? You're going to die. Don't forget that."

    Who cares? Robertson may be a bigot and a homophobe, but he has the right to say whatever he wants. A&E can decide to carry his show or not. It's purely a business decision for them.

    Why is anybody surprised that a 67 year old fart from Louisiana is a bigot?

    What appalls me is that an elected state official, the Governor of Louisiana does not understand the first amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

    I think A&E has some tough days ahead getting this straightened out. The rest of the family is threatening to leave the show if he isn't reinstated. Bye-bye franchise.

    A&E made a bad judgement in canning him If they had just let it pass, the fallout would have been much less. Their response should simply have been that while they don't share them, he is entitled to have his own views on the subject.


    From the posts I see above, I would guess that some of you liberals feel that only losers watch the show. Maybe you're right:
