Duck Dynasty strikes back: Robertson family responds to A&E’s decision

The firestorm continues as people from both side of the aisle debate the merits of A&E’s decision to place Phil Robertson, of the hit show Duck Dynasty, on an indefinite hiatus because of comments he made about homosexuality in an interview with GQ.

The family has since issued a formal response to the networks decision via their Duck Commander website:

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right. We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

In the aftermath of A&E’s announcement, social media and the internet more generally have been overrun with hashtags and comments from people are standing with Robertson and his right to share his opinions, while pundits and public figures debate the issue.

TheBlaze reports:

Robertson’s indefinite suspension from the hit series has sparked public outrage and support for the family patriarch, with public figures like Sarah Palin and Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal standing firmly behind them.

And as we’ve noted, social media has been ablaze with comments supporting Robertson as well, as many Twitter users have included the #IStandWithPhil hashtag along with their messages.

Yesterday, Glenn leant his support to Robertson, explaining that he may agree with the comments made but he unfailingly supports his right to speak his mind. Glenn proceeded to offer the entire Robertson family a home on TheBlaze should they need it:

And if you take a stand and they fire you, TheBlaze will… be on the phone… We’d like you at TheBlaze. We’re not ashamed. We won’t fold. We have people of diverse opinion here. There are people here that are godly and atheist. There are people here that are liberal and very conservative. There are straight people. There are gay people. There are white people. There are black people. They all have an opinion, and they’re all welcome at TheBlaze. Duck Dynasty, we would be proud to have you.

TheBlaze’s Laurie Dhue joined Pat and Stu on radio this morning to discuss the Robertson’s statement and the future of the show:

    We need to attack liberals in 2 ways. First is economic and second is power. The 3 top bastions needing attacked economically and the power base is Hollywood, Wall Street liberal cronyism, and DC corruption.

    He represents Christians perfectly. That is why their views are slowly dieing.There is plenty of hate in the world. I stay out of redneck country for that very reason.

  • DFrascone

    I don’t watch any liberal programs on TV. As soon as I see or hear any liberal BS on a program, I change the channel.

  • John Gallion

    Absolutely NOTHING Mr. Robertson said was hateful. In fact he was explicit that he, like Christ, loves everyone. He is merely stating what God has said about the behavior when asked the question. You may not like what God has said, but that doesn’t change the fact that God has said it. While cultures change, God does not. Just because someone tells you you are behaving wrong doesn’t mean they hate you. You Lefties really need to grow up and grow a pair! And by the way, 1) I trust rednecks who speak plainly far more than reprobates like yourself who will crush someone into dust because you disagree with them and 2) Christianity is far from dying. In fact it’s the largest faith in the world and is spreading like wildfire – especially in China and Africa.
    Get your facts straight.

    Do you disagree with people who have sex with children? Do you disagree with people who prefer Ford instead of =insert your favorite car company here=? If so, I guess that means you hate them, right? That’s your logic: disagreement = hate. Right?

    Or the better question is….why do people have to agree with YOU in order for you not to hate them or for you to not accuse them of hating? Do you hate Phil because he disagrees with you?

    Christian views aren’t dying. They are alive and well. Christians love everyone but love does not have to mean acceptance of all behavior. If that were true then you would love the child molester I mentioned above but I bet you would view that as being wrong. So why is it okay for you to say child molestation is wrong but not okay for someone else to say that homosexuality is wrong? Why do you feel you are in the right and everyone else is in the wrong?

    You fail at many things, a big one is the ability to separate sin from sinner. They are not the same. Everyone is inherently a good person but its the choices we make that can turn us evil. One must look past the action and still love the person because that’s what Jesus and God do. They love us regardless.

    You, on the other hand, are the type of person who hates the sinner, not the sin. Christians make a distinction, as Phil has done. You do not. I can’t expect you to understand that though due to your inability (yes, another failure) to look at things analytically and logically. Your gut reaction is to call someone a hater without even understanding how they think. You act on emotion alone, and that is dangerous. Murderers act on emotion alone as well.

    You need to seriously consider your worldview. It is putting you in jeopardy of hating everyone who disagrees with you, but no one granted you the power to always be right. That means you have to accept that other people will have their own opinions that will not match yours and they are allowed to do that. Why should it make them the hater and not you? You are an elitist if that’s the way you think. You are also judging that person when you don’t even know them. Phil has not judged anyone. He has only stated what God has already told us which is homosexuality is a sin. That’s a fact, not a judgment. Phil knows he can’t judge a sinner because that sinner still has the ability to repent before they leave this Earth in which case all their sins are erased. I bet you didn’t know that either, did you?

    He also represents the vast majority of heterosexual human beings who find homosexual interest in another man’s privates and posterior absolutely disgusting.

    Gays want people to acknowledge that they are just the way they are without hating them for it. Well, libtards and gays, YOU better just acknowledge that heterosexuals are the way they are and RESPECT their right to express their disgust with homosexuality. You want respect, you better give it first!

    Because of the man in the White House, and the woman who does his bidding. Valerie Jarrett, is the spawn of the founding members of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was she who gave the stand down order for Benghazi, and is still working to subvert this great country into what she thinks “Whitey” deserves. Meanwhile she is a millionaire and does not believe that white people should exist. Why anyone would vote for a man who has no soul and is the Devil’s advocate? BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK. DEMONCRATS WERE FOUNDING MEMBERS OF THE KKK. Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) was a FIRM believer in Eugenics. She thought the blacks were an inferior race and needed to be eliminated. SO DON’T LET THIS GO, TELL IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR OVER A YEAR AND I HAVE CONVINCED SOME PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEIR WAYS. BLESS YOU JOHN WOLF AND YOUR FAMILY.

    We don’t hate pee-pee puffers. We just understand that they are very sick. I have known MANY fudge-packers; through my ex gf who had an art framing studio. I was VERY respectful to them. I’m fabulous to everyone I ever meet. See we Christians are raised to treat others as we’d like to be treated ourselves. Anyway, these phags were very surprised how kind I was to them, and became very trusting and had my gf and me over to their homes and gatherings, AND confiding in me their secrets/ their screwed-up upbringings with a messed up relations with the father figure or male leadership. EVERY SINGLE ONE of these guys had an EMOTIONAL issue that “made them” alter their views from what “normal people” ordinarily do. And ya know what, you low IQ dufus?? I still liked some of these weirdos!! I felt that we all have crosses to bear. We all have skeletons in our closets! We’ve all had hard times in this life. And I feel that we all deal with it as best we can. So why would I hate on them for the way they got through theirs??? But I do know that there are VERY few, IF ANY people born gay. It is an emotional ill. This is a fact. And anyway… I don’t hate people for something like that. But there are so many people who HATE those of us who simply see things differently than YOU do. How messed up is that??? YOU jerks are the ones calling the kettle black. I helped one of those girly-men by taking his car home and having my carpenter helper replace the bent fender, hood and grille, and another friend of mine repainted the new parts… because as the fairy told me; most rustic men would take advantage and abuse him and his wallet, and he knew I’d get it done for as little as possible because he could tell that I’m as honest and decent as any human on the planet. So you see, you as$clown? YOU and your ilk are the ones with the HATE and intolerance issues. ALL human beings have the GOD-given right to do as they please as long as it hurts no-one else, and to be left alone! That doesn’t mean you as$ats telling us what we can and cannot THINK!!!

    I think you have that backwards. It’s not Jarrett who does his bidding. Valerie Jarrett is there (since 1991) to make sure Obama does what George Soros wants done. Notice she’s been in the audience every time he’s done one of those rah-rah health care pressers since the website went bad. AND she was sitting right behind him at Mandela’s funeral. AND he made some other speech lately which wasn’t about health care (can’t remember what it was), and Jarret led him to the podium. She didn’t introduce him; she just walked him up there and then walked the rest of the way off stage.

    It is ironic that the people who want Phil Robertson to be silenced now are people who would not have the power they do, had it not been for the Christian ideals of tolerance and kindness in the first place. It is horrifying that “the love that dare not speak its name” is no longer sodomy–it is the love of God that seeks to rescue those who are perishing. Speaking truth to power is no longer in fashion, because the former truth seekers got the power and have decided they like it better than the truth.

      If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years.  Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom.  If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year.  But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him.  If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master.  But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children.  I would rather not go free.’  If he does this, his master must present him before God.  Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl.  After that, the slave will belong to his master forever.  (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT) could go on and on….please read your entire Bible and not just the parts the church reads to you or tells you to read….

    I don’t know who is writing the articles for The Blaze, like the one above. I would think to be a creditable journalist, you would at least proof read your story before sending it out the the audience. I losing confidence in The Blaze’s ability to produce a readable piece. I subscribe to The Blaze network and applaud their programming of the truth. But, of late, the article sent to my inbox are just so faulty and misleading in their meaning.

    For ex: “Yesterday, Glenn leant his support to Robertson, explaining that he may agree with the comments made but he unfailingly supports his right to speak his mind. Glenn proceeded to offer the entire Robertson family a home on TheBlaze should they need it:”

    There is a misspelling and it says Glenn agrees with what Phil Robertson said in the interview. That statement is FALSE. Glenn did not agree with what Phil said, Glenn stated that on the air. But because the author did not take the time or effort to proof their work, the above para makes the entire article false reporting.

    Get it together The Blaze. I’m going to have to quit reading your print if I can’t figure out what you are trying to say or if it is correct or not!!!!

    Jos 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

    Listen, strength is only find when you stand for what you believe in, Amen!

    Absolute RUBBISH People like you are why I don’ like religiosity. You make tons of proclamations that you have ZERO proof of simply because you don’t know how to explain things that you cannot wrap your head around. Have you never seen a very young child just up and offer something to someone else/ another tiny tot? Your examples are ridiculous. Children learn from their parents and others in their environment what they need to in order to survive. They don’t pop out of their mothers saying’ “MINE” or anything else. They don’t pop out thinking; “GIMME”. We are born with a blank slate.

    We’ve given the gays & lesbians 4 decades to take a tolerant role in society, just like they asked for back in the 60′s. They just wanted to be treated fairly, does anyone else remember that?
    Now they’re everywhere making demands, obstructing the constitutional rights of everyone who disagrees with them. They should have been happy to be let out of the closet, but their intolerance is now having a very negative effect on America.
    Every TV show has to have their token gays. TV ads are filled with effeminate male images acting like the exact gay male stereotype. We used to call them “fairies”. Well now pretty much every male portrayed on TV is a “fairy”, check out Barnes & Nobles new TV ads if you’re wondering what I mean.
    Gays and Lesbians have gone from “we just want to be treated fairly” to laying out a long list of demands that they are OK with shoving down our throats, the exact practice that they accuse Christians and others of doing to them. We let them out of the closet. We treated them fairly, they are now teachers, policemen, doctors, lawyers, rappers, the whole gamut of American life, and they are the most intolerant group in our society with the exception of the racists (e.g. Obama, Jackson, Sharpton, Wright, Holder, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett et. al.) With all of their little liberal/progressive friends like Chris Matthews in close lockstep.
    Seems to me like it’s time to put them back in the closet, now that their true agenda has been made so perfectly clear. These are the exact same people, with the exact same traits that have destroyed every major civilization since the beginning of recorded history. Time for them to go, NOW…………..

    The hidden hand is not Valerie, but she’s definitely a member. The “hidden hand” is the CFR, of which David Rockefeller is the CEO of the Puppet Masters. Correct on Margaret Sanger! The fraud against the African American community is that they need to keep them contained, which is why they promote welfare and drug consumption among blacks. But I digress…
    Valerie is a babysitter otherwise known as a handler. She is with Prince Barry EVERYWHERE…I would be surprised if she didn’t facilitate and direct the creation of the daughters of Michelle and HRH Barry S.
    Vernon Jordan, Valerie’s uncle is a big shot Director at the CFR and the BBergers; Kissinger is another Director/Puppet Master with creds in the CFR, Trilateralists, BBergers, Club of Rome, RIIA, Bohemian Grove and Pilgrims. Few are as high up as he is, and he CONFESSED on the floor of the NYSE back in 2009, that it was Barry’s assignment to bring in the New World Order…look for it on you tube. It should be there!! Valerie makes sure he follows the script, whispers in his ear: and checks his chip implant every once in awhile, too!

    By standing up for and expressing Christian values, ironically upon which this country was originally founded, one runs a significant risk of economic ruin by it’s government. Expressing a Christian view or taking a Christian stand can be in direct conflict with the PC police as well evidenced by Phil’s comments. Civil suits by the ACLU and the federal government justice dept. bankrupts most every middle class citizen in this country. This is why most (in my opinion) do not “take a stand”.

    While Phil likely has amassed a significant financial fortune form this endeavor w/A&E, he can likely weather a financial storm unleashed by the Dept of Justice or ACLU. However, most middle class Americans do not have the financial foundation to defend themselves. In order to make a stand and run the risk of bankruptcy by government, is tantamount domestic terrorism upon it’s citizenry. It’s the American way of communism, forced socialism by litigation bankruptcy instead of guns and labor camps. Our governments way of keeping it’s heavy foot upon our throats.

    Who here wants to run the risk of losing your home? family? career? all in expressing your Christian beliefs? As Christians are forced into silence AKA the silent majority from economic reprisal by it’s socialist government. I can think of only one who may accept such a Christian challenge, and he is in prison in Iran.

To manipulate and control, Which I would say with A&E they have managed to do. These groups want to pursue a progressive agenda and work to control public opinions and beliefs.

    100% agreement!
    The progressive shrills opened Pandora’s box & now everyone can clear the air to expose homosexuality for the death and destruction it generates! Despising a deadly sin and those dedicated to spreading it is virtue. I can’t imagine anyone not knowing a friend or acquaintance that died in that horrible AIDS process, then sanctifying and
    glorifying those acts that transmit that and other lethal diseases!

    Homosexuality is a fascinating demonic process of using goodness to undermine and destroy goodness. By bending over backwards to not offend or condemn evil, one tolerates, then accepts, then fights to protect evil; in spite of the fact they can’t even speak of that which they
    rabidly defend! That’s been abomination”, as defined since history began!

    Some conservative blogs are censoring (blocking) the every-day three word triangulation of oral-anal-sex, that defines homosexuality! Mention the words and demonic progressive shrills overwhelm everything with hysterical condemnation, as if homosexuality isn’t what it is! Cowards
    run and hide!

    Would shrills who lure mankind into the clutches of homosexuality warn mankind to not swallow cyanide? Would their learned leaders?? I think, not! I remember Mr. Jones… flocks of followers drinking his kool-aide… and his lieutenants executing those who didn’t. I remember Hitler, and a lot more. Will we allow schools and government to
    indoctrinate and force children into homosexuality or teach the process of life, including “good things” ingested and “excrement” that removes toxic waste, germs, and diseases from the body knowing feces are toxic and divinely designed to rot and return into the earth from
    which it came. What goes around is coming around, on a far grander scale.

That is the same attitude that every lesbian in the world has… So why is he being condemned for it?
    He said he didn’t understand how any human would choose sex with an animal over sex with a human.. Animal rights activist should be jumping for joy because he is speaking against sexually abusing animals. As far as those who are promiscuous are concerned, sex without love and commitment and intimacy is nothing but an animal urge and leads to a life of loneliness.
    Now, as for as any of this being a sin……according to the bible, any sexual relation outside of marriage is a sin..It is a sin that a majority of the people in the world… me included …are guilty of…. The amazing thing about sin is that it can be forgiven……… When you people want to accuse someone of some imagined slight against what you might stand for, make sure you understand what that person is talking about before you launch a warrantless attack against them.

I will tell you what, and that is, public opinion is turning into your direction, where many, especially young people, who might not be gay, but believe your choice IS your choice to make! If you continue to persecute “straight” businesses (bakers, photogs, etc., ) you will squander the good feelings that are currently coming your way. DO NOT OVERPLAY YOUR HAND, OR YOU WILL GET BACKLASH! The one thing legislation WILL NOT GET YOU, is simple respect. I used to feel that we should all just “live and let live”, but, your continued harrassement of “straight” bakers and photogs, is turning me against you, where I was not against you before. I am not alone in those feelings. DO NOT GET UP IN MY FACE AND DEMAND RESPECT, SIMPLY BECAUSE SOME LAW HAS BEEN LEGISLATED. YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE MY RESPECT! PERIOD!

    As Sarah Palin once said, it is not about what you say but rather who is the target. See the stunning hypocrisy below. All examples of the most offensive comments, racist comments, and disgusting comments.

    You know, I wish there was a web site where we could list Hollywood actors/actresses who are liberal and then when a movie came out, we could see if libs were in it and could decide to see it. For example, I won’t watch anything, movie or on tv if George Clooney or Alex Baldwin is in it. I didn’t go see Gravity recently because of this. If I do watch it, it will be when it is on free TV a few years from now. Where is such a website..? Anyone know…?

    Nothing is gonna change. The homosexual lobby has become one of the most powerful groups on the planet now. Nobody will stand up to them. You’re not even allowed to say it’s wrong anymore, which it is, but too many people are too scared to say it, as they are bullied by all the leftists who protect the right to be perverts. In fact I imagine I’ll even be banned from this group for even suggesting the following: What kind of world do we live in where if you’re a man and you look at a woman who’s dressed provocatively you’re considered sick, but if you’re a guy that will stick your penis up the anus of another man it’s not only considered acceptable, but a behaviour to be celebrated. The world is upside down. Now, watch the “always tolerant” leftists attack me for acknowledging that fact.

  • oldtexgal

    The family response was perfect. Am at peace that Phil and his family will be fine, regardless of the uproar and fall out. Buoys my spirit that there has been such an enormous outpouring of support. There was not the thinnest sliver of hatred, insult, or derision directed at any gay or lesbian… or anyone else, for that matter. His was a simple statement of faith, and belief, based in Christian biblical teaching. Ironically, it is exactly the same as that of Pope Francis. The Pope is Person of the Year, and Phil Robertson is suspended! Go figure!

    Mr. Robertson is being persecuted for being “openly Christian”. Historically, this is nothing new, and will certainly not be last manifestation of hostility directed at the followers of Jesus Christ. I’m thankful he will live to witness again and again. Sadly, Christians are being slaughtered for their faith in other parts of the world. God bless America. Our freedoms of speech and religion may be under assault, but remain strong and protected.

    The problem isn’t the beliefs. The problem is the almighty Progressive
    wishes to control our very thoughts in lock step march. They claim
    tolerance–as long as it is within their belief system.

    The Progressive wishes to propagate deviance. That is what homosexuality is.
    It is deviance–by the definition of deviance. He wishes to advance
    that homosexuality is normal when it is not normal. It is abnormal. The
    idea of two fathers or mothers raising a child is abnormal. The idea of
    marriage within the same gender is abnormal. I’m not trying to play
    God–God can judge them. But on earth let’s not try to pretend that this
    sort of lifestyle is normal. And the reason the Progressive does
    this–because it makes him feel evolved to state the abnormal is normal.

    The Progressive becomes angered when I call him a Marxist. But yet
    the tactics he uses are Stalinistic–either accept their mandates or
    else. And now plural marriages are being looked at as being acceptable.
    Transgender marriages. Anything and everything that is abnormal and
    deviant the Progressive champions.

    These are nothing but tools the Progressive uses in attempt to
    create a utopian world that has never existed and will never exist.. And
    they wish us to serve under their intelligentsia in this world. The
    problem is, like in my fiction and history, when a utopian world is attempted the result is always the same.
    Tyranny.

    Unless you are an expert on the subject matter you are speaking about I personally don’t care what you say, nor should anyone else. However, if you are a public personality and you choose to exercise your right to freedom of speech and attempt to direct our support or vote, you’d better have some good research to back up your story. Mr. Robertson has rock-solid research from the oldest book in the world but you don’t have to believe it or even agree with it. He absolutely has the right to answer the interviewer’s questions honestly (some of our politicians might try this) and it is the duty of the reporter to report, period. Quack….

I truly hope that the Robertsons accept Glenn Beck’s invitation to move their show to The Blaze!!! I would then watch it regularly, and they would do much to help The Blaze become all that Glenn has envisioned for it!!!

    Why (even if A&E retracts) would this family want to be a part of the network. Personally, I would have nothing to do with them knowing their only desire is to gain monetarily. Nothing for the respect of the people. There is NO doubt that another station, maybe even a Christian channel would pick them up. There at least the message of truth honor and integrity would be respected and the opportunity to lead a non believer to Christ. To me it’s like the money handlers at the synagogue, Jesus overthrew them. A&E has shown their color….let em’ wear it!

    Here is something I haven’t heard mentioned anywhere else after the events of the last few days. There is a lot of Duck Dynasty merchandise for sale in stores everywhere. Most of that merchandise has the A & E logo on it, which means they get a part of each sale made. But the Duck Commander company has it’s own merchandise. Take all your A & E merchandise back to the store and purchase your Duck Dynasty gear only from the Duck Commander website (or the store at the warehouse if you happen to be close enough to West Monroe, LA.) That is the best way I know to show your support for the family.

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    Leviticus 18:22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.

    Jude 1:7 – Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    Glenn, the best thing that you could do would be to sign a contract with “The Duck Dynasty” equal to whatever they are getting from A&E. You will show that you are standing up for our Constitution’s Freedom of Speech and Religion, fighting against all those who are trying to flush America’s morals down the toilet, and bring a highly successful show on board as well.

    Agree, Lara. It is the same in the NAB, with the exception that there aren’t the “Thee’s and thou’s.” But that’s just splitting hairs, lol. Point being, it is found EVERYWHERE in God’s Word, in the Pentateuch, elsewhere in the Old Testament, and everywhere in the Gospels of the Christ and the Letters of His Apostles. What God hath laid down cannot be taken up by Man, For Man is NOT God. Mr. Robertson was not advocating violence, but following the Commandments, as he should, and as we all should. Even Jesus said when you see your brother doing wrong to rebuke him and exhort him to repent.

    I’m just a 78-yr-old female under 5 ft., but have had to fight for everything I had or earned for my family, and I am afraid of no one who violates my sense of justice. I was an adult by 12, earned my living & helped my family since 16, and went to evening classes for >30 years to earn my HS diploma and 9 yrs of college–all while working as a writer/editor/producer in all the communication mediums and raising five kids. But I never backed down from anyone.

    I still blog and write for conservative websites and articles, put conservative bumper stickers all over my car, and join all the Conservative groups that are actually trying to make a difference. I am promoting the Conference of States Project to get 4/5ths of the States to vote for Amendments to take back our power stolen by the Feds, and urge all of you to do the same. Read Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments.”

    I created a political web mall five years ago that could have changed our history if any so-called patriot or patriotic organization would put their money where their mouth is. The site, ItsYourIssue dot com is still a skeleton, but it could have educated the uninformed citizenry with true information on our political issues, given them a free way to fax/email every one of their local, county, state, and federal representatives with demands that they Work for We the People or lose their job with interactive letters written by professional writers.

    The home page link “About This Site” is the Executive Summary that explained the goals, designs, and user instructions to prospective Strategic Partners. However, I could never get even a reponse from any politician or political organization. All they want is your money to work on their own projects. No one else is as smart as they are, in their opinions. So I’m still fighting–still writing–but I’m no longer donating a dime to any of them since they can’t even show respect enough to respond to my letters.

    Phil and family Go with God and our LORD JESUS the CHRIST. You spoke the truth with regards to the homosexual issue. I am disgusted that GLAD and BSGLT or whatever they are can push good people and Christians around. Too few Christians are willing to stand up for their faith because we as Christians have not educated ourselves to defend our CHRISTIAN beliefs. PHIL is correct to list the sins by which we are to Judge our own behaviors and LIves. In Timothy the Holy SPIRIT tells us to rebuke, reprove our fellow Christians so that we can repent and turn from our sins. PHIL is again right in that we are NOT to judge people to Heaven or Hell because that job is our LORD and SAVIOR’s.
    The difference between TRUE CHRISTIANS and self proclaimed christians is that we accept our sin nature and therefore our need to ACCEPT the gift of Salvation from sin through the Sacrifice of the Life of JESUS who was the only sinless BOTH Son of GOD and Man. WE have ALL sinned and fall short of the Glory of GOD. Homosexuals and many others who self proclaim themselves as christians refuse the idea that we are sinners and change the BIBLE to suit their life, and that proves their rebellion to Believe and Follow and Accept JESUS the CHRIST. If you LOVE JESUS you will Accept JESUS and FOLLOW JESUS as outlined in GOD’s WORD/BIBLE. As soon as you read this those in rebellion will turn to the Old Testament and mock the rules laws and instructions in the OLD TESTAMENT,Like OBAMA and CLINTON’s, without having them placed in context and understanding of who is being instructed. ALSO the BIBLE is written for thousands of human generations not just the last 50 years. Finally just because you are a conservative Christian element does NOT make their interpretation correct and the one to be used to contest the World opinion.
    A TRUE CHRISTIAN interpretation will always yield itself to being corrected by GOD’s WORD. We are GOD’s Subjects, How dare We Tell GOD what to do for us.

    I sent A&E this email in regards to the situation:

    According to the law what you have done to Phil Robertson is illegal, which gives the family legal grounds to sue your network & get out of their contract with your company. I sincerely hope they do both. Not that it would matter if they did sue you as the family leaving your network would do serious financial harm to your company. Unless you make this right with them neither I nor my family will ever watch your network or patronize your sponsors, and I know a lot of other people feel the same way.

    You caved to the pressure of a very vocal minority, and have angered the majority of Americans who still believe the Bible no matter how unpopular people who are living contrary to it’s teachings may find it. These groups like GLAAD claim to be all about tolerance while being completely intolerant of opposing views. They claim to want equality while in reality it seems their real goal is to replace what is normal for a country founded on Biblical principles, with something that is diametrically opposed to The Word of God. If you thought that the Christian majority of this country was going to just sit by and remain silent about what you did to this man after he stated his views on immorality, you couldn’t have been more wrong. I truly hope you reconsider your position in this matter

  • Brian Poling

    Phil, never judged anyone. He was asked a question by a reporter (and if you ask me it was a set up form the beginning they knew he felt deeply about religion and were looking for a sensational story).

    He answered the reported according to the gospel of the bible. Who does not get it, again? Allow me to refresh your memory my friend.

    Mark 16:15 Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation

    He was not judging anyone he was doing as Jesus instructed. Perhaps you should pick the bible up and really read it, instead of cherry picking what you think is a “zinger” that will shut down a conversation.

    God bless

  • Gregsqu

    A&E has made a mistake in dumping Mr. Robertson. The Bible warns us to be aware of times when right will be made wrong and wrong will be accepted as being right. We are at that point now. Recent protests in the Seattle Arch Diocese demanding a gay vice principle be rehired is an example. These kids, and some parents are demanding that the Catholic Church change their stance on gay marriage. If the Church were to do that, it would no longer be a Bible based church. It would be no different than many Protestant denominations that have caved and bastardized the Word of God. Phil Robertson was correct in his depiction of homosexuality and he was right in stating that he would never move to harm someone that was homosexual. We are to love the sinner and hate the sin. Simple to do if you faithfully follow the teachings of Jesus. I have a Lesbian couple living across the street. They have a little boy and they are very nice people. I treat them with respect, but I do not approve of their lifestyle. They have to answer to God for their actions and I have to answer for mine. I am fortunate in that I won’t have to try and justify why I lived a life contrary to God’s plan for man and woman to procreate and populate the earth. I’ll just have other issues that are indefensible, as we are all sinners.

    This is the way I see it: TWO RIGHTS DON’T MAKE A WRONG. Think I have
    it backwards? Not really. I have never heard of the “Ducks” or of
    GLAAD, so I have no bias either way. I may have the “right” to
    criticize my neighbors for their lifestyle, which I believe to be
    “sinful”. They, in turn, have the right to criticize my way of life.
    Where is the harm? Both sides believe that their way is “right”. So,
    let’s stop with all the hypocrisy, the finger-pointing, the blaming.
    What ever happened to “sticks and stones…?” We have become too
    thin-skinned, and react to every negative comment. Let’s concentrate on

    One thing I have yet to hear mentioned in the free speech vs. A&E debate: most of these Hollywood and/or television people have a contract restricting certain behavior in public—especially when they are representing the show or movie. This could cover public drunkenness, criminal behavior, slander, revealing certain information about a movie or serial plot. Maybe a more valid question is whether or not the “Duck Dynasty” contract covers such behavior, and whether or not they violated their contract.

    What I don’t understand, since when does the homosexual community, and majority of society care about what God’s word says? Do they also then care about what other religions relay to their believers as how to live ,food approved choices ect ? Why the attacks on God’s word? Why not wicka, budhist, allah… I never hear about other religions being castrated, silenced and ridiculed for their beliefs. The Christian community is the least tolerated by society, where are the organizations picketing for God’s freedom, for God’s EQUALITY?

    You know since people do not like the quote from the bible meaning gays its there choice to do what they are doing and for some reason they feel that they must be accepted. Now here is the question since they do not agree with the word of god. And feel that there own needs are more important perhaps they should read the book of revelations.

    really dumb lecturing here; so as long as you don’t do what you are told you are moral? And what is “right”? Religion has little to do with it–most people just understand that homosexuality is just another sexual deviation. As long as it is confined to their own privacy it is sort of ok. No other weird sexual attractions are accepted although historically it fluctuates but there is always time when everything comes back to normal.

  • Robert Rogers

    Slorobert1965.rr@gmail.com
    To start with, we the people have a constitutional right the freedom of speech. And as a God fearing man Phil Robertson was posed a question by a reporter for GQ magazine. He answered the question in the right way, to his belief. Which is also his constitutional right, freedom of religion.
    The Bible does not nowhere say that marriage between 2 men or between 2 women is proper. (If it was he would have created all men or all women). Marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. For those people who can’t understand the concept of marriage. Sex between the same sex is a sin, I don’t care how people see it. It ain’t right no way shape, form or fashion. And the people who don’t believe it, will pay for their actions in the end. Homosexuality is wrong period, and the bad thing is it is being taught as ok to our kids.
    And the people should have A&E blocked from their TV channels, I have done checked into it, and it can be done.
    That was totally wrong judging a man by his belief. But nothing would have been said if it was a queer saying something against a straight person.
    But what everyone needs to understand is the Robertsons business is Duck Commander not Duck Dynasty.
    Duck Dynasty was made up by A&E and if you purchase anything with Duck Dynasty on it you are supporting A&E. But if you buy anything with Duck Commander on it you are supporting the Robertsons.

    Read this carefully: “Glenn leant (sic) his support to Robertson, explaining that he may agree with the comments made but he unfailingly supports his right to speak his mind. Glenn proceeded to offer the entire Robertson family a home on TheBlaze should they need it.”

    The word “but” in the first sentence suggests that the word “not” is missing. If fact, Beck is not homophobic. He supports gay civil unions and has railed in the past against hating on gay people.

    So why would Mr. Beck now allow such a blatant homophobe like Robertson to use BlazeTV to spout his anti-gay hatred?

    Ka-ching. Beck knows that his base, his followers support the homophobic hatred expressed by Robertson (see comments below). Therefore, Beck will happily set aside his supposed principled stand against homophobia when there’s money to be made by giving homophobic Robertson a new platform.

    Ka-ching. Beck is not one to let principles get in the way of making money. If you haven’t noticed that by now, you’re not thinking critically.

    The God of LOVE – who defines what love is – also defines what marriage is, it is a GOD PLAIN RELATIONSHIP – meaning, there are deadly ramifications for getting it wrong, gay marriage leads to eternal death – living life as God intends -> leads to eternal life.

    I assume you are straight did you choose to be straight I did not. Gay people did not choose to be gay but your argument is that. As Pope Francis recently said “I don’t judge people that are gay” If a Gay or Lesbian couple move in the to house or apartment next to you you would not go over and welcome them to the neighbourhood. Or would you shun them because of what your believes are? Tori Amos in ICICLE there is a lyric that says “I thing the Good Book is missing some pages” I agree

    However you, or anyone, came about certain lifestyle(s) is not the issue, once we become adult and more mature in our thinking, it is up to each of us to prove, one way or the other, if the things we personally do, are in step with what God excepts – will God except us “just as we are” – many who claim to be Christian, say that he does, but again, did they prove him at his word, or is this sentiment something conjured up from within.

    So even the masses who claim to be Christian, may not be in step with what God requires. That places them in the same lot as anyone else who walks contrary to the living word of God.

    Homosexuality is in direct opposition to what gains one eternal life. By the way, what is life all about – that we experience here in the present human form, answer: to get it right, for if we do not – then truly, our life has been wasted and lived in vein – here one moment – gone the next.

    Pope Francis is attempting to regain membership in a church that has slid away from popularity, with what is happening in the middle east and in spite of the rise of Islam around the world – keep your eyes open for a last crusade driven by a “push” at Christianity coming from a radical Iran and its fanatical religious base. But that again, is not the issue here. What men tell us, even the Pope, is often times in error. Do we follow men and their smooth words or do we follow every word of God as he implores us to do.

    You don’t know, or understand “the good book” well enough, to make your assumption, rather if its missing any pages or not – its more like – because it doesn’t agree with your way of life, you find “IT” erroneous – instead of yourself.

    I know I am late to this party but what did he really say. From what I have heard he said he could not understand anyone having sex with a man. That to me does not sound like pouring hot brimstone over anyone’s head. If he would have said all sexually deviants were going to burn in hell that would have been more to the point. But as one good old red neck I must admit having any kind of close physical relationship with a male is not my way of life either. What was such a big deal, it is like saying I like women with black hair. I am expressing my opinion of what makes me happy or in Phil case unhappy. Can someone please explain what really happened here?

    This constant attention to this topic is getting a bit old, actually it should have never really been addressed by either side.

The conservatives need not incite any of our elk that is a little off kilt either. It’s just bringing attention to something that’s going to bring hurt to some one like myself. I’m not a lesbian, but I don’t look traditionally girly, so now I’m getting angry looks from my fellow conservatives, as if I’m somehow part of the hate. I hate sex period!!

    Beck is not homophobic. He supports gay civil unions and has railed in the past against hating on gay people. Why, then, would he invite this homophobic hillbilly onto his network?

    Money. Beck has always put money ahead of his supposed “principles.” Beck railed against Obama putting Americans on a kill list until that America was killed. Then Beck celebrated despite the utter lack of due process for that American.

    Why? Money. Beck does not want to take a position that his gullible and ignorant, reactionary, religulous followers would object to.

    Robertson’s comments were not just homophobic; they were racist to the core as well. Why would Beck not condemn those comments when he claims to be against racism? Because Beck is not against racism at all. He race-baits Obama, and no one doing that is anti-racist. Just the opposite in fact.

    A&E is going to find out what, “Crappy – Crappy – Crappy”, means in the near future. They sent the man to the interview – with a representative from A&E – at GQ, and they have known exactly what he said for many months. I would not blame the Robertsons for seeking another venue – after all they were successful in business a long time before the show started – they make the show, not the other way around.

    Phil and family should be laughing all the way to the bank, and the PC people out there stirring up the controversy should take note – they cannot force people to bend to their will, nor can they destroy Phil Robertson for truthfully answering questions that are opinion related. They wanted to know what the man believes and what he thinks, and they got the bad news on their doorstep, as specified by their own design.

    This all seems very dumb to me. I mean you ask a Christian what he believes about a subject that you know is going to be in accordance with scripture, and you are going to get this result. No surprises, and no controversy except the one they are fabricating.

    People have a right to express their own opinions, and no one should be allowed to take that away from them, or rip them to shreds in public for it, This is very vicious business and it is a form of bullying.

    A law degree is not required to be a bailiff, and I think we know who the stupid one is here, garak. What kind of name is that? It sounds like a hairball being expelled by a cat.

    What’s the matter? Did you get kicked off the site you usually troll?

    You either do not understand what true debate is, or you think making yourself look like a fool is debate.

    You also never watch Fox, that much is quite clear.

    It is easy to disrespect something or someone when you don’t like the message that they give you about the way you live your life. It is just too difficult to admit that the opposition has a point.

    Calling another person’s faith stupid and fake is not only ugly, but it is the desperate act of a person who feels condemned inside themselves. We get that you are godless, but you don’t have the right to criticize that which you have no conception of.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Once again you prove just what people don’t like about you. You have a talent for committing vindictive, offensive and futile expressions of your inner ugliness.

    That is immature and intolerant. Perhaps you need counseling.

    Gay marriage precludes conception and birth within it. There is no reproduction going on, only perverse sexual gratification. That is the truth of the matter – deal with it.

  • Bill Tilghman

    The point is no matter how much you want to achieve mainstream acceptance, no matter how hard you work to seem normal to the vast majority of people, you are not. The fact that no offspring can be born of a same sex marriage pretty well spells it out – your blood line cannot be continued within the bounds of a same sex union.

    That is the truth of the matter, whether you accept it or not.

    The Bible is not incomplete, you just don’t like what it says about the way you live.

    I like it! LOL!

    No one cares what you say, or do for that matter. What part of that can you not comprehend?

    Black electrical tape takes care of the camera, and the practice of not running the PC 24x7x365 works too.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Thank you for providing that stellar insight.

    Funny, but the offended in this case get to determine what is offensive, and they are the least qualified to judge.

    But then, so are you.

  • Bill Tilghman

    That is most definitely correct. If they don’t like what they are hearing about their lives, then they have two options – stop listening, or change. It is odd how they always want to force the accused instead of focusing on the one person they have complete control over – themselves.

    God hates sin, but loves the sinner. You have a bit of misinformation there.

    Well, since MSNBC has 6 viewers nationwide, I don’t see them as a big factor in anything. As a matter of fact, I did notice they were showing a marathon of Lockup on Christmas eve and Christmas.

    The name “prison channel” fits them like a glove.

  • Bill Tilghman

    They got away with tearing that woman to shreds in the public eye, and now they want to do the same to Phil. I think we should deny them that.

    No more lynching people over words, especially when the opposition uses entrapment and lies to set them up. This has got to stop.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Donna, not to distract, but clan is the proper spelling – the other one has a bad connotation. I am with you otherwise.

  • Bill Tilghman

    That does seem to be what we have seen from them thus far.

    What about the collateral damage that comes of hate speech? I think a little Donnie Davies is in order.

    A video on youtube is your defense? Seriously?
    The Bible has been around much longer and has a credibility that your support can’t dispute. Sorry, but this is a failure on your part.

    I fully support Phils right to express his opinion whether or not I agree with it. With that being said, Bull and shit that whatever sponsors who pull out you wont buy any of their products. Me personally I could give a fuck. As a matter of fact, the only reason I know some of the sponsors is because of this contraversey, other than that I have no idea who sponsors what. So to say your going to, or we should all boycott the network or whoever sponsors them is a pipe dream. You will unknowingly at some point break your own boycott whether you know you did or not. You or I cannot bring down big corporations. Happy new year!

    Majority or minority is not significant. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. I want to point out that what this man said about homosexuals is wrong. We are supposed to hate the sin, and not the sinner. Punishment of others for sin, is a cause for lament. Sin is a parasite that destroys a precious child. Christians are meant to hate sin because we love each of God’s children. It is not an excuse for us. to think of ourselves as better than each other. Do we seem caring to you when we take security in condemning others? Salvation and forgiveness are our securities. Before any one of us points a finger and says someone will be judged, we must measure ourselves against the “Sermon On the Mount.” If we can’t fulfill these obligations then we are wicked and evil. Steven If you want to offend, and challenge Christians I suggest you hold us up to these standards. Shame us with them, as Christ would under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. May you be blessed and have success accordingly.

    Why don’t you go back to Rachel Madcow err,, Maddow’s page. This is for people who do “not” share your views.

    Sheez, grow up a pair already, I know you were born with two.

    You are free to express whatever opinion you have, but you can’t just make up phoney statistics. Where does you “55%” come from? – MADE UP. Morality comes from God – not just some opinion survey anyway. Your statement shows your ignorance. All of our Founding Fathers believed in God – whether as Christian or Deist. Those beliefs were (and are) neither worthless or irrelevent as our entire government was based on them.
