Phil Robertson was wrongfully terminated by his employer for his right to free speech and his religious freedom.
His employer A&E is subject to the laws of the United States in particular Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
SEC. 2000e-2.[Section 703]
(a) Employer practices
It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer -
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
You're a complete and total idiot.

You're also a bigot and I understand that you always will be.

Do me a favour. If your final nurse is a gay black man, try not to purposely spit on him.

Polymath's type have more rote knowledge. But they don't understand what they know.
Just ask him about chopping a stick into infinite pieces.
He thinks it can be done. He thinks mathematical models are real.
Dave and I know they are imagination.
If that's your perception of Dave's state of mind, that's your reality of it. I have no argument with that.

And although I have been impressed with Polymath's posts about physics and mathematics, I must confess to almost total ignorance on those topics, so I can't comment.

I do consider myself an expert on the U.S. Constitution, so you better watch yourself if you discuss it.

There's a reason the guy was singled out for the Catcher white sheet. It's reserved just for people like him.

Yep. It's sad that they can't see the damage religion does and try to do better.
By denying the past they're just doomed to repeat it. It's obvious, even here where there are only words, that religion corrupts.
Sure many have killed for various causes but religion takes the death toll cake, so to speak, by far.
What's funny though, are the personal attacks, coupled with rabid frothing at the mouth.
They just prove us right, 100%

Both wiki entries are prima facie false.
Anyone who relied on that information for a description of ID would not only have no clue what it is, they would suffer an informational deficit, because the entries are lies.
ID offers no cosmological argument, to my knowledge. It concerns itself with the evolution of biological diversity.
It is neither "anti-evolution" nor "creationist".

Da Nile is a river in Egypt. It got turned to blood. It was a religious thing apparently. In a fictional story, don't fret I won't count those deaths.
When we had algae that turned the beaches red, I wondered if it was the same thing as reported in the Bible to have happened in Ancient Egypt.

This should scare the hellfire out of Topix atheists. The first generation of AI using this will surpass their abilities. Will make them obsolete. Their masters will chunk them out the door and replace them with this new technology working these forums.

But the rest of us may at least have more intelligent conversations with their replacements. Those things will be designed to "think".

AMERICAN ATHEISTS 2014 NATIONAL CONVENTION
STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS
American Atheists fights to protect the absolute separation of religion from government and raise the profile of atheism in the public discourse.
Since 1963, American Atheists has been taking the principled and uncompromising position that our government should give no special treatment or preference to religious belief. Through lawsuits, innovative public relations campaigns, and education, we are working to normalize atheism and allow more and more people to set aside religious belief and superstition.

As I said earlier and you actually agreed with me.

“Hate solves nothing.”

It also does nothing but create more hate.

I love all races and cultures.

Furthermore, I would never disrespect someone because they’re homosexual or effeminate.

To spit on another human is a example of a childish antic. I have never spit on anyone and I don’t intend to start.

Yep, there’s a reason why Catcher uses the white sheet.

The use of the flag to surrender is included in the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907.
The improper use of a white flag is forbidden by the rules of war and constitutes a war crime of perfidy. There have been numerous reported cases of such behavior in conflicts, such as fighters using white flags as a ruse to approach and attack enemies, or killings of fighters attempting to surrender by carrying white flags.

What I agreed with was Phil’s right to free speech and his right to exercise his religious freedom.
Just because some group doesn’t agree with Phil or his religious belief doesn’t give his employer a right to terminate him.
He is after all protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1967.
Which I very much agree to since it is in fact the law.
It had nothing to do with his religious freedoms. He flat out said that homosexuals were the same as terrorists and people who have sex with animals. He flat out said that the black folks was just fine under them there Jim Crow laws.

Oh wait, never mind. I already called you a complete and total idiot, didn't I?
