    You are right to speak whatever you want. Just be ready to deal with the consequences. I do not have the right to say anything I want at work without the consequences of being terminated. He chose to say what he said, now be ready to deal with the consequences.

    Holy Crap! Its a TV show for crap's sake! Decisions on content are made by mad men (another tv show) and corporate sponsors. This is a perfect example of why our system of government is failing. Its all about the slant and the spin and the $$$ raised.

    Exactly ...I wonder if Phil had made comments about guns and their use in shooting ducks or if he made a comment about his use of a retriever to pick up all the ducks the Duckmen shot and a group like PETA were to express their outrage which got him suspended off the show,if the sentiment here on the RTF would be the same

    The Genuine Conflict Being Ignored in the Duck Dynasty Debate.

    http://www.theatlantic.com/national/...debate/282587/

    "Instead of acknowledging this tension, however, A&E, GLAAD, and their supporters have responded with disingenuous expressions of shock and horror. And it matters that it's disingenuous, because if they actually acknowledged that there is a genuine conflict between orthodox Christianity and homosexual sex (along with several forms of heterosexual sex) they would have to confront head-on the fact that calling for a boycott or pressuring for Robertson's suspension tells orthodox Christians that their religion is no longer acceptable, and that’s not a very politically correct thing to do. Right now, they are trying to weasel out of it by characterizing Robertson as a backwoods bigot who takes his moral cues from Deliverance rather than from a straightforward reading of the Bible and the historic teachings of the Christian religion. "

    I think it is the best read on the situation.

    Phil certainly has a Right to express his opinion and to believe in whatever he wants to believe in. However, all citizens in this country have a Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, Christian or non-Christian.

    Good read;


    Duck Dynasty is not the show that they wanted, it is the show that got away from them.

    It seems what the producers intended and what A&E envisioned with the show is much different than the show that they ended up with, but they didn't do anything about it because it was so wildly popular and so wildly profitable. But even with all the money, they have never really been comfortable with what happened.

    This is what happened. The whole idea of the show was to parade these nouveau riche Christian hillbillies around so that we could laugh at them. "Look at them," we were supposed to say. "Look how backward they are! Look what they believe! Can you believe they really live this way and believe this stuff? See how they don't fit in? HAHAHA"

    When the producers saw the way the show was shaping up, different than they envisioned it, they tried to change course. They tried to get the Robertson's to tone down their Christianity, but to their eternal credit they refused. They tried to add fake cussin' to the show by inserting bleeps where no cussword was uttered. At best, they wanted to make the Robertson's look like crass buffoons. At worst they wanted them to look like hypocrites.

    They desperately wanted us to laugh at the Robertsons. Instead, we loved them. A&E wanted us to point fingers at them and laugh at them. But something else happened entirely. Millions upon millions of people tuned in, not to laugh at them, but to laugh with them.




    If 2 people find love in this world, that is a good thing.
    We don't need the details.


    The real issue with this show is how every one of the shows end.

    The FAMILY, together at the dinner table thanking GOD for their bleeings.

    The media, controlled by secular progressives, can NOT stand this lifestyle!!!!
    (tolerance everyone)
    Therefore, they are trying to BULLY this type of mind set away!

    Phil Robertson may not have artfully articulated his position, but then neither does Bill Mahar!
    One guy is sincere, one guy is mean for cash.
    Which one to the leftys adore?

    If you wanna be gay, be gay!
    If you like being gay and gays, then like being gay and gays.

    Stop trying to BULLY those that don't into liking gayness.

    i have not seen much of phil's work since the original "duckmen of louisiana" with warren coco of go-devil. it was vhs, in a yellow dust cover and a duck club classic in the late eighties/early nineties. from the few dd shows i have seen lately it seems phil is the EXACT same personality he was then. i like him.

    btw when a country kicks a man for being Chrisitian, quoting the Bible the country is in big trouble.
