I am wondering if it really would be better if Mr Robertson had lied about how he felt about homosexuals.
Think about it.
Would you rather know who dislikes your way of life out in the open so you can make a reasoned decision to avoid spending your time and money in a way that supports them; or would you prefer they dislike you silently?
I prefer it be in the open.
Of course, he didn't say he disliked any particular homosexual, he merely stated that he felt it was a sin and that his belief was backed by Scripture.
Notice that he never said he'd refuse to do business with Gays?
Has he ever refused to hire homosexuals? Ever fired someone who he later discovered was gay?
He's head and shoulders above A&E who may be in violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act for suspending him. Oh yeah, everyone who's been saying that A&E had every right to fire him over his remarks forgot the religion clause of that law, didn't they?
