I agree in terms of most companies, but show business is more dependant on public opinion than most other industries. The network has a right to protect its brand, and every contract includes language to that effect. When he broke policy in a public appearance, they had every right to mitigate the damage.

Okay, I'm not quite up to speed on this discussion but I must say that I'm against giving employers too much power. If I go to work and do my job as expected and to the satisfaction of my employers and then go home and write a FB post, seen by my friends there, that my company sucks, then I don't think they should have the power to reach into my "off the clock" personal life to prevent it. I could just as easily be sitting in a coffee shop with a group of friends while airing my grievances and negative opinions against my employer. If a boss should be in there buying coffee and I don't see him/her should he be able to discipline me at work the next day for my remarks? I say, no.
Some years ago I went to work at a pharmacy as a clerk and they had a package of papers for new hires to sign which "forbade" us from speaking negatively about the company outside of work. It also forbade us from drinking within 12 hours of working a shift (responsible people wouldn't drink before work anyway, I hope) and the 12 hours AFTER working a shift. I didn't even really drink much, but c'mon. How much fkn reach into our personal lives do employers want.
When I'm on the clock I do things their way, off the clock my life is none of their business.

This was a corporate decision, twit, because this hilljack didn't follow guidelines as his contract demands. He signed it and took the money, so he's bound by it. "Gays" had nothing to do with it.

"Progressives" are "tolerant" until you disagree with them.
Phil Robertson quoted the Bible as a source for his opposition to homosexual lifestyle. If anything, the left has demonstrated intolerance to his religious beliefs and views.
I oppose same-sex marriage. Gays preach "tolerance," so I expect them to make an effort to tolerate my views.

Yeah, but you know that one way or the other they're gonna piss some people off. It seems crazy...it's "reality TV" and then there's an uproar because one of the people speaks an actual opinion. That gives an awful lot of weight to this guy's one opinion. Phil Robertson thinks homosexuality is a sin...is anyone actually surprised? The gay people now have the option to not watch the show, buy any of their products, and boycott the sponsors.

Phil Robertson's views are still available on News stands everywhere, and the upcoming season's shows have already been recorded - they include Mr. Robertson, and will air with his performances intact. He has not been censored by the government, nor has he been imprisoned....which means his First Amendment rights are intact as well.
The First Amendment does not guarantee one continued employment, in the event your free speech writes checks your responsibility to your employer won't cash. In other words, welcome to 'Right to Work', fella.
Practice your religion on yourself, leave others out of it, and you won't keep having these problems.
Yes it is his views that the gay population objects to. If one quotes the bible,the gays attack the person personally,hence the reason why the "homophobe" remarks fly. For those who believe in the bible,homosexuality is a sin according to God. He loves the sinner,not the sin. Gays show zero tolerance toward anyone who believes differently then them.

Phil Robertsons is being personally attacked for his beliefs. Heck, Cracker barrel even removed his items so not to *offend* people. Is that a joke?

Such displays of hypocriscy ,hate and intolerance.

They won't just brush off anothers belief. They DEMAND that everyone accepts their lifestyle whether it goes against someones beliefs or not.

Do you remember writing this sentence? "With respect to the STATE'S IMPORTANT AND LEGITIMATE INTEREST IN POTENTIAL LIFE, the "compelling" point is at viability."
How about you point out exactly where you found this in the cut and paste I supplied along with the link? Because everything quoted for your benefit was also for the benefit of others. The state does NOT have "important and legitimate" interest in potential life. Just like CPtr said, the state has its interests where it deems it has its interests. Roe v Wade says these interests must be "tailored to the recognized state interests." Not once did I read the state has specific interests in potential life. So, how about you provide the quote and link from Roe v Wade stating it does. Verbatim.
Did you hear about the comatose woman from Texas ,who is being kept alive (against her husbands wishes) in order to keep her 14 week old baby alive until that baby can be delivered. The unborn ARE reconized and protected after all.

Okay, fair enough.
But consider this realistic scenario; A woman used birth control, the birth control failed, she does not want want to be pregnant and did take precautions to prevent that outcome, but never-the-less she is now pregnant.
Half of society is saying, "too bad, stay pregnant, don't be a murderer". The other half of society is saying, "don't force that woman to remain pregnant against her will".
The Supreme Court made its decision. The woman prevails over the z/e/f, but the SC says it's not an absolute since elective LTAs are not legal.
That seems like the best compromise we can reach.
You miquoted the prolife position. Nobody is saying "too bad,stay pregnant,don't be a murderer". What we ARE saying is that your child (in the developing stages of the beginning of their lives)exists once you're pregnant. Killing that childs /offsprings life because mom doesn't *want* to MOTHER that child is wrong.

We all view a mother that doesn't want to MOTHER her unwanted child (after birth)as an evil criminal. We ask ourselves,why couldn't she give that child to another who WOULD "mother" her child as their own. I am sure that she has her "story" to tell to and her "excuses" but we just don't care,do we?

SUDDENLY,the rules change after birth? How convenient for the mother who wants her easy way out of it. Sounds like the fathers who decide that they don't want any part of their responibility when the take their easy way out and leave.

Ink: "What's the difference between a successful abortion which produced a living child and an induced delivery that produced a living child?
bHitler: "There would only be a difference if two different procedures were performed, or in the timing. Otherwise, none. The pregnancy is over in both cases, and that's what both the abortion and the induction were for.

My cousin recently underwent induced labor and delivered a beautiful baby girl.
I'll be sure to let her know that you congratulate her on her successful abortion.
LOL right? That bitler comes up with some doozies huh?

Does that mean that she think that I have had abortions too because I had induced deliveries?

GOOD grief that woman is strange.

Yes, you did.
The POINT is that the woman is no longer pregnant. That means the abortion was successful. If it's successful, it's not been botched.
Helloooo? Anyone home in there?

The POINT of an abortion is to rid the woman of her reponibilities of mothering her child. She pays to have her baby killed,NOT delivered.

What a knucklehead you are. You are embarrassing your proabortion movements agenda by making such dumb statements. PLEASE continue by all means.

Right...either way, someone will be offended. But the network is unlikely to lose viewers of the show; the risk is losing the gay audience for other shows by siding AGAINST ITS OWN POLICIES concerning homophobic speech.
