Which Part of Noel?

Which part of 'Noel' does Maggie not understand? It is the first part... NO! She has been told 'no' many times already when she has approached the Christmas Tree.  But, this is the second time  she
has removed a bell from one of the lower branches and proceeded to tear it asunder.  She is lucky
she didn't choose to destroy one of my angels. They are dear to me. She may get more than a stern look and a harsh, NO!   And it would be more than a lecture on what good dogs do and don't do.

Well it looks like Phil Robertson has been suspended by the A&E Network for his comments on homosexuality during an interview with GQ.

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said in a statement sent to FOX411. 
“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.
"However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said. “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
He referred to Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
Phil did not say that people who engage in those behaviors don't have to right to do that, just that the Bible teaches it is wrong. For that he is being punished because those who embrace that lifestyle do not feel he has the right to free speech.
He has not taken away their chance to live as they wish, but they have taken his right to say what he wishes.  It is a double standard.
I pray that the family stands behind him and refuses to continue the show without him and that good of some kind will come from this.
