I watched DD for ten minutes last night and I have no idea what the show is about.
I want my ten minutes back.

I don't watch the show. I just feel that A&E is wrong. The biggest reason should've been out of complete selfish money grubbing. DD is making so much money for that network.

I even saw DD dog toys out buying dog food last night.

Basically someone high up at the network is a doughnut puncher and got butt hurt over it (pun intended).

sure, they're wrong, but I don't understand the outrage.

The more I think about it the more it baffles me. A&E is a business, you can choose to support or not support them. They are entitled to their beliefs just like you are on an individual basis. They like the gays and their lifestyle , Phil doesn't. So I won't support the A&E, story over. That's the choice you have in America.

What I don't get it the whole movement that people are upset Phil can't express his views. Yet they are upset that A&E is expressing theirs.

Agreed, however I think a lot of people are sick of how accepting we non-Gheys have to be of the Gheys.

I think you are right but it goes beyond that. I understand that many on this board are not Christians, however, many people are. Although Christianity is still the largest religion in the United States, it seems that any form of Christianity in our society has become taboo while other religions can express themselves without repercussions.

I think this issue has become a rallying point for those that feel our PC-ness has gone too far the other way.

As one of the non-Christians, I'll just state that I don't really care what gay people do in their private lives. I also don't care what Christians do in their private lives. That's why it's called a 'private life'.

Waaaaaaay too much voyeurism in today's society.

You would think it was, they way the media presents it.

BTW, My viewpoint is everyone should just mind their own fukkin business. I won't tell anyone how to live their life, and no one should insist that I have to accept it.

X2 (or 3?)

I think it's interesting that the people representing Phil (his family and thier handelers) have been nothing but polite and understanding while the people on 'the other side' have been rude and demanding.

I get that the squeaky wheel gets the grease but sometimes you should just stop greasing the wheel and throw it out. It's not helping anything and it's just causing you grief.

You would be surprised to know that most larger companies have social media policies which means that if their HR department (ours is a friend of mine on facebook) doesn't like something you say anywhere on the net you can be terminated. This isn't just a tv channel issue. Yes he said it in the media and it reached more people but it can happen to anyone really these days.
He wasn't criticized for expressing a religious opinion. He was talking about vaginas and anuses if I remember correctly. He may have added some religious stuff on the end but it wasn't the part of his content that was the highly controversial piece.

I agree with you on all of this. Though I still suspect it's a publicity stunt for A&E and for DD.
Also why do people at walmart want DD rugs and blankets? I have never wanted a 5x7 rug from a tv show in any room at my house. This stuff is weird to me.

I also agree with your other post that being overly PC sucks. It's stupid. People need to not be so fragile. It doesn't offend me when the Muslims at work go into the prayer room and pray. It doesn't offend me when my Christian BA prays before she eats (and sometimes when I am driving). People need to worry less about stupid things and try to concentrate on real issues.
I could give a rats ass if phil or dr phil likes anus vs vag. None of it offends me.
