    In some states (New York and New Jersey are in this set, I'd assume many others) it is illegal to fire someone because of legal activities outside of work.

    The reason this Robertson guy got canned was that he was acting in his official capacity from his relationship with the network.  And he did so in a seriously offensive way (going at not just gays, but African Americans and non-Christians).
