I just can't keep my mouth shut when I see so many people go on and on about how much they support Phil, how he was only quoting from the bible, everyone is attacking Christianity, where's free speech? Yada, yada, yada.

So I broke dowm and commented this on my Bil's post
I understand where you're coming from but I just wanted to add two things. One, while Phil does have freedom of speech, A&E are his employers, not the government, and have the right to suspend him for breach of contract, not representing their company in they way they would like or really any reason they choose. Two, it says a lot of things in Leviticus, a couple off the top of my head is not having long hair and getting tattoos... Phil's hair is pretty darn long,lol. But the most important thing to keep in mind is the man who's word really matters here, Jesus Christ, said Nothing about homosexuality. People need to stop cherry picking from the OT and focus on Jesus's actual teachings.

Edit: It's Corithains 11:14. Leviticus mentions not trimming your beard or temples.

I think what you wrote was brilliant.  I love the part about pointing out that according to Leviticus that guy's long hair is as much of a sin as homosexuality.

Except are you sure it is Levticus and not Corinthians?


Because Leviticus mentions not rounding off hair around your temple or beard or shaving bald parts in your hair.

You did well. I have expressed a similar opinion on FB.

Somehow I knew who this post was written by before I saw. Lol 

a. The bible does say things about homosexuality, pretty sure it's in Romans somewhere. b. It also says things about men with long hair and tatts. Not to mention a multitude of stuff. 

A&E most certainly has the right to discontinue their business relationship with him. So you are on target there. 

I find it incredibly hypocritical of them, but it's their right and honestly don't care if they fire or suspend him. I think this entire situation was a business ploy. Period.

She said that JESUS never spoke on homosexuality, not that the Bible doesn't.

I find it very interesting that people are so passionate about a reality star. My Facebook has blown up with posts, pictures, and debates on this topic.

True. It does talk about not trimming your beard or your hair. Either way, the bible also talks about men not having long hair, which most everyone disregards.

I am just saying if you are going to use the Bible to shut people up, use the correct books because otherwise you seem exactly like the people you are criticizing.   Just looking at the verses you do agree with but don't always know where they are.
