My wager? She mentioned people wrote to her that she had interpreted the passages wrong, and then, parenthetically, couches that by saying others think she interpreted them right. The former group rattled her cage. Her intellectual foundation for her case is no longer solid, so she’s walking back the Bible stuff.

So Adam has 4 kids to support eh? Maybe he should of thought about how his behavior might effect them. Maybe he should have thought about how he would like it if some jerk treated his daughter like that. Not even a smidgen of sympathy for him. He made his bed, now he can sleep in it - as they say.

I’ve never been able to stand Beck on his TV show, too much histrionics, and too much wearing his religion on his sleeve. Nor have I ever listened to his radio show. I have no reason to be aware of his association with The Blaze, nor do I much care.

I rarely (when I can't find another conservative talk show) listen to him, but I see no reason to condemn him.

You seem to have a "burr under your saddle".

I’m sure someone will take a chance on hiring him as a bookkeeper or an accounting clerk. The risks to the company are too great to employ him as anything higher on the corporate ladder.

It was verbal abuse, he wasn’t trying to use his First Amendment rights. He’s a whining slavering coward. He got his fifteen minutes and a lost job to show for it.

“”Adam M. Smith should go to church””

Probably not going to happen. It has been reported that he and wife are probably atheists.

Yes, but my point was that, the article begins with a wide-eyed, innocent "gee, is it fair to fire someone just because he has a different opinion than you?" Golly, boys and girls, that's awful!

Yet, the entire point of this media/queer lobby contrived CFA "controversy" is to punish someone just because he has a different opinion.

Which, of course, is the goal of all liberalism, silencing dissent, even the "thought" kind.

There was no condemnation, just a complete lack of interest. The man can do what he wants, for as long as he wants. No skin off my back. I’m simply not interested.

Adam Smith is no financial genius.

“My current credit score is in low 500’s (was 780 about 6 months ago) due to missing payments on two credit cards, one mortgage and two HELOCs. I've settled both credit cards and one of the HELOCs. So, no chance of refi, I think.”

Should someone be fired from their job and threatened with violence, torture, even death because they have an opinion different than yours?

Oh, I dunno. Should someone have his company threatened, demonstrated against by activists, vilified in the media, threatened by senior government officials, and his employees ranted at for having a personal opinion on gay marriage different from theirs?

I don’t believe he’s been threatened. If he has, it comes with the territory. He went loud and proud, was totally rude to that poor girl, and now HE is the victim? Very hard to swallow. AND he asked for anything he is getting and then some, including being fired for being a jerk and proud.

Adam was fired because he made a fool of himself in public (through the internet) and as a highly visible employee with the company, which his presence would inherently bring shame and a loss of business to the company, caused him to be terminated with prejudice. So what’s his b!tch?

you got that right.

Christians are not bound by the OT law at all. Jesus put it back in perspective when He said that it was originally intended to be one man and one woman.

cherry picking from the OT and demanding that Christians observe OT law.

she doesn’t know the difference.

First beck has been a leftwing dem,former shock jock most of his life. His faux Conservatism is just to capititilze on it’s popularity. Beck himself,is a weeping,narcissistic,meglomaniacal,messianic,Clown! The Blaze,unbeknownst to many,is run by people Beck hired from the lefty site,’The Huffington Post’. Beck’s faux support for another mostly leftie,almost all of her life,Michelle Bachmann and then for religious liberal Rick Santorum,was nothing,but a smokescreen for his support for Obama’s near idealogical soul mate,MITTEN’S. As for Adam Smith,he included in his ‘You Tube’ profile,his job description and educational back ground for all to see. As a CFO for a medical supply company,his conduct outside of business is most certainly grounds for firing,as it could of cost his former employer millions in lost business.

Not unless their "opinion" is actually a weasel word for kicking puppies, or what this piece of debris did.

In that case, HELL YEAH!

Oh,i forgot to mention Beck’s out and out theft of material from the late Andrew Breitbart. So you don’t think i’m a Conservative,because i point out Beck’s and Michelle Bachmann’s long time leftwing background’s,or the fact that i pointed out how Beck hired people from the leftwing ‘Huffington Post”,to run his site’The Blaze’? How about the FACT,that Beck in a jealous rage in 2010,because the then newly formed Tea Party,was stealing some of his thunder,was having it’s inaugural Convention in Nashvile. So what does Beck do,he throws a hastily arranged concert in California and get’s Michelle Bachmann, Who’s nose was out of joint,because Sarah Palin was named keynote speaker,instead of Bachmann,to break her commitment to the Tea Party event and go help Beck try to take publicity away from the Tea Party. Yep,Bachmann is really Conservative.sarc. That’s why she held the most anti-Tea Party and anti-Freedom an American can have...As a tax collector for the IRS and why just this year,she got her first Bill passed as a politician. Yep,i sound like a real lefty.sarc

He also was tying up a business demanding something for free — a glass of water.

Everywhere I've worked, drinking water has been provided. No need to go off the job for it.

Nobody is complaining about the water, but if you are tying up the line on a very busy day for a free cup of water, you don’t have the right to abuse the waitress. He was there to foment a controvesy, plain and simple.
