It's pretty obvious you're unable to talk about this without making it personal. That's a shame. It's also a shame that you accused me of not even reading the man's statements like a "simpleton" and then were corrected on your own understanding of his statements a few posts later. There's no need to be so confrontational.
I didn't say they could win in court, nor did I say they would lose. It's quite possible they could lose. The network president at A&E is gay, and the Robertsons are obviously against that, meaning that one would think there would be some line in the contract about statements against homosexuality. Then again, as ironic as it is, the show is this network's cash cow, so maybe the contract doesn't say that in an effort to appease the Robertsons. It's because of A&E's willingness to not stick to their guns in lieu of profits that I am curious about what it actually says, because without something in that contract stating he can't say these things the man has a decent case. A&E cannot unilaterally decide what this man can or cannot say no more than any other employer. WV is an at-will employment state, but you or I would have a similar case if directly fired or disciplined as punishment for using protected speech.
Yeah actually they can decide what he can and can't say based upon a CONTRACT. He is not an EMPLOYEE. You're getting your causes of action confused again. Anyway, I'm done. Tired of educating for free. I already told you the reason A&E brought him back: it was a publicity stunt. They rallied the morons that watch that stupid show and increased viewership, and are laughing all the way to the bank.

Meanwhile.. Gay Marriage was legalized in New Mexico and Utah! Bloop!
Furthermore, an old nasty man is going to hell for not keeping his beard groomed. There's a scripture that condemns men with unkept hair! Yet another example of white trash picking only a few things out of the bible to live by. Hypocrites who live in a bubble and have no concept of reality! The rest of the country and the world are moving forward and could give a shit less about a group of ugly men who paid for their wives.(another sin)
What do you mean "paid for their wives"? I don't understand.

The gays haven't won anything.Even Cracker Barrel has backed up and put all the Duck Dynasty stuff back on the shelves.Notice Walmart hasn't even made a statement about any of this , They know better than to get involved in this issue.Like I said before they have decided to pick on the wrong hillbilly this time.All this is doing is waking a lot of people up to the filth, immorality and religious prosecution going on in our country.
I agree with you, the gays havent won anything as of yet... seems to me that some people are way to think skinned... As of someone posting that this was not in violation of his 1st Amendment Rights... It seems to me that when it comes to religion that an establishment cannot discriminate against that person, due to their beliefs... So yes, if he spoke out and gave an opinion, and then suspended, due to some clowns whining about what he said, then yes, his rights were violated... I worked with some woman who had a belief that they had to be home before sundown.... and they couldnt work on Sat.... their rights were honored, they could leave before it got dark and they were not required to work on sat. as it was considered their Sabbath... Same should apply with Mr. Phil... he was in an interview with a magazine NOT working for A and E at the time that he voiced his opinion.... Did he sign a contract saying that he was on call to A and E 24 hrs a day? I think not.... Way to go Phil for speaking up, what so many others are afraid to say.....

You're obviously are so high up on your soap box that you cannot understand what is being said unless a person is in utter agreement with you. I said that they cannot "unilaterally" tell a person what they can or cannot say; meaning, there MUST be a contract that both parties agreed to for A&E to require they adhere to it. You're so blind in your rage that you cannot fathom I'm in agreement with that.

My whole point was that these people do not need A&E, but A&E needs them. Thus, I think there stands a decent chance that they refused to sign a contract that prohibited them from speaking about their faith, and that there's a decent chance that A&E conceded to allow it for profit's sake. Circling back to what I originally said, actually seeing what is in the contract would be quite revealing.

Seems like you are the one who is irked. You claim to not care yet you always make sure to point out that it is not you. You are not in control of how anyone acts and apparently you can't even control how you react.

Here's an example of a morals clause, so you'll shut up about it:

The Actor shall not commit any act or do anything which might tend to bring Actor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule, or which might tend to reflect unfavorably on the Network, any sponsor of a program, any such sponsorís advertising agency, any station's broadcasting or scheduled to broadcast a program, or any licensee of the
Network, or to injure the success of any use of the Series or any program.

And this post seems to bother you though.The point im making dummy is the fact i dont pretend to be someone else for the purposes of trying to gain a victory because of not being able to do so with original thought or name.So therefore i evidently have controlled their emotions by pissing them off to have them respond in such a way. And now are we to argue over who might've pissed who off first?Trite.Move on.

You don't have original thoughts. You blindly repeat what you have been taught. Actually, you are the one who has been controlled. People respond in such a way for the sole purpose of messing with you. And it works. Remember.. You are only in control of the way you re-act.

And did i not get a reaction out of them over what i,d first posted? And we go. Just like i said you would argue about next..Who pissed who off first. I called that one didnt i ? You're so predictable. And the only ones who blindly repeat what they are taught are reprobate minded liberals like the politically correct, gay activists,enviromentalists, among other things.You're like lemmings following one another over a cliff.At least conservatives vary in their beliefs.And the fact they dont put up a unified front like libturds proves it.

Couldnt care less who started the pissing match so, no, I am not predictable. You, on the other hand, very much so. It's a guarantee that you will try a come back and 98% of the time your posts will include the same words over and over, again and again, because that is what you were taught. Unlike some of your conservative friends you appear to be unable to think for yourself. Or to at least have the good sense to find an online thesaurus.

Well, it's been fun, but as I told you a couple of months ago... You are just nothing and mostly ignored but I'll see you around the next time I get bored.

Quite the contrary, you're still going on about it. And you are predictable.Thats why you cant shut up about it.All this because you defended a troll posting under my name.And it didnt even concern you.Shit stirrer.Was it worth getting your dander up? Unable to think for myself? Who's thinking and/or posting for me,the imposter? Nah, im quite original.Often imitated but never duplicated. The list of libturd imposters i piss off proves that.DUH LOL

You don't know that's in the contract anymore than I do. Without reading it, one guess is as good as another.

That's why I used the word EXAMPLE. If you're that interested in his life and his contract go down in the holler to their pre fab house trailer and ask them.
