‘Duck Dynasty': 5 Other Crazy Phil Robertson Quotes From the GQ Article

'Duck Dynasty': 5 Other Crazy Phil Robertson Quotes From the GQ Article

Not like we expected a family of tell-it-like-it-is hunters to speak any differently, but …

Phil Robertson, patriarch of A&E's “Duck Dynasty” clan, has been in hot water since Wednesday over some pretty graphic anti-gay comments he made in a GQ Magazine article.

But there are a few other gems in his interview that we think you might enjoy.

On growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights Era:

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field … They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’ — not a word! … Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

On why he voted for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012:

“If I'm lost at three o'clock in a major metropolitan area … I ask myself: Where would I rather be trying to walk with my wife and children? One of the guys who's running for president is out of Chicago, Illinois, and the other one is from Salt Lake City, Utah. [GQ editor's note: Romney is from Boston, not Salt Lake City.] Where would I rather be turned around at three o'clock in the morning? I opted for Salt Lake City. I think it would be safer.”

On irony:

“We never, ever judge someone on who's going to heaven, hell. That's the Almighty's job. We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus — whether they're homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later, you see what I'm saying?”

On global political history:

“All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I'll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That's 80 years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups.”

And ultimately, on reality:

“Let's face it: three, four, five years, we're out of here. You know what I'm saying? It's a TV show. This thing ain't gonna last forever. No way.”

  • DesRee

    “We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

    What like kill em all and let God sort them out???

    • rachael

      Did you even read the interview? Phil may hunt; maybe a bit simple and unpolished, but he is no murderer.
      He is referring to, understanding that sin is sin, we ask do it, but that our job is forgiveness and to spread the word of God. Judgment…well, that's God's job. He will sort that out on his own time.

      • Pete

        This is all a shame. The interviewer knew Phils views and set him up for this controversy. This is typical of the left news media, trap someone into saying the wrong thing and we sell lots of paper so what if we destroy someone's life on the way. Phil meant no harm and we all know that. God Bless Phil and his family and let's let this go.

    • bb

      I guess you missed the part where he said, “we just love em…”

    • Todd

      You can't fix stupid

  • mridenhour

    Maybe by quoting Ron White, the rubes won't be so quick to drive me into the ground, so here goes: You can't fix stupid.

  • kylie

    Phil's awesome

  • tired of all the whiners…..

    He is entitled to his opinion,I am disappointed in the A&E people….all the trash on t.v.,is perfectly fine, but when someone states his opinion that might offend a group, he's ousted….seems a bit much, but, just the norm anymore for how this country is becoming more of a dictatorship than a free country….

    • Amy Bee

      Yes, he's entitled to his opinion. Most likely, however, voicing it publicly has cost him some money. There are morals clauses in contracts. Likely, the contract he signed says that he can't speak or act in any way that denigrates other people. This is not an unusual clause when celebrities are under contract with a studio. He is no different. He had to have known what he was saying would cause an issue with the public as well as his bosses. If he didn't, then really is as stupid as the redneck he plays on TV.

      • Tony B

        I see you read the legal options page.

        • Amy Bee

          Looks like a lot of people would benefit by doing the same.

          • Mike Troxell

            Exactly how would I, or anyone for that matter, benefit from reading the rubbish on another page? Anyone who benefits from reading anything on this site is a degenerate.

          • Amy Bee

            You obviously already did read the legal options page.

      • the_man2580

        And that is the entire issue stated in one paragraph, without any emotional trappings and uneccesary outbursts of opinions that don't pertain to the discussion at hand. Nicely done.

        • bill choise

          I agree but you will never satisfy the thumpers

      • gotme

        Why would you ask someone a personal question and not expect an answer ?

      • DoneIt

        He did know, he does not care what the public thinks. The interviewer also knew. You do not ask a question about alternative lifestyles, or sins in America then be shocked when a openly and highly publicized Christian gives an anwer. The thing is, he doesnt really mind what happens. He is all about professing his faith no matter what.

        • Amy Bee

          You're going to blame the interviewer for asking questions? Do you know what an interview is? Should he have asked questions like how long does it take to grow a nasty beard like that? Or, are you really stupid or just playing stupid on TV?

          • DoneIT

            I didnt say the interviewer should not have asked the question. I said the interviewer shouldnt have acted so shocked by the answer. It is simple. If you ask a muslim about their beliefs, or an athiest what they think, they will damn sure tell you. He is no different. The interviewer asked a question, knowing the answer. I dont blame the interviewer. There is no blame period. Unless you want to blame all the people that get offended so easily about everything. Reality check: Everyone will not agree about anything 100% of the time. He did not go out and picket a gay bar. He did not call for gays to be murdered or abolished. He answered a question about his beliefs. He was asked the question, he didnt just start spouting this off for no reason. IDK why everyone is freaking out so bad. He has made his opinions on a lot of subjects known through out his show. If people do not like the way he lives, or what he believes, they dont have to read his articles, or watch the show. Maybe honey boo boo offends me, but you dont see them kicking her off tv LOL.

          • Amy Bee

            I'm not easily offended. But, what Phil said about how happy Blacks were living under Jim Crow has to be about the most offensive thing I've heard since Paula Deen wanted to dress a waitstaff as slaves.

          • Jule

            Why is that offensive? He was asked if he ever saw any mistreatment and he answered based on his experience.

          • Amy Bee

            Did he conveniently forget that Blacks were forced to ride on the back of the bus? Did he seem to forget that Blacks were not allowed to eat in the restaurants or hotels that they worked in? Did he conveniently forget that blacks had to use separate facilities, such as restrooms and water fountains? Did he conveniently forget that Black children could not attend white schools? Did he conveniently forget all these facts of life for Blacks under Jim Crow, or was this just another positive memory from childhood? How anyone could NOT be offended by this is, truly, astounding to me.

          • Charles Harris

            well where he grew up there probably were not busses , or restaurants ot hotels and i bet he used the same facilities as theblackss, the ole oak tree by the field .. He never said that blacks were mistreated, he said where he worked and lived he did not see it.. Jim crow probably never made it to the bayou..

          • Amy Bee

            He was completely ignorant of the law in the state in which he lived? Come on. I've been told that I'm in denial. This is denial at its absolute worst.

          • Charles Harris

            Where are you getting your info, again where did he say anything about a law of the state , he said he did not SEE with his eyes( HIS EYES) any injustice to blacks, he did not say he had never heard of it or that it never existed or that a law ( in your words existed ) . he spoke only of where and how he was raised.and the blacks he worked with. Quit making a mountain out of nothing.. not everyone ( most , yes) persecuted the blacks back then , I know that must be hard for you to accept but again thats is historical fact also.

          • DoomedToRepeat

            African Americans of that period were very, very careful about what they said and how they behaved around whites. Most likely he has never had a deep, personal relationship with anyone of a different race. Very few of us have. He reported what he saw. He had no real idea of what they felt. Are his statements even worth arguing over ?

          • mj01323

            You are the one in denial. And you don't even realize it. Time for you to contact Robertson and ask him, not the crowd commenting on this article (and your ridiculous comments).

          • mj01323

            Perhaps you need to show some maturity and contact Robertson so you can ask him these questions. Do you even know where he grew up? You continue to show your narrow minded ignorance. You must be a victim. You are excellent at taking up offense for people you never knew, in ways you never experienced yourself. But you are certainly offended.

          • Charles Harris

            He said the ones he worked with in the fields were..were you there ?? have you talked to anyone that was there? He even said he was called white trash..I willbe the first to admit many generations of black were mistreated.. but again to lump all;in in group is wrong,. How do I know or you know those Blacks he worked along side were not happy with their life.. Again he stated what he grew up with, he did not say all black were happy,, he said those he worked with.. geesh get a life

          • Amy Bee

            Yes, the blacks he worked with in the fields did not have the same rights that he did. I do not need to have been there. This is a historic fact. They were intimidated into not saying anything about their lot in life. This is not a conversation you seem capable of having. If you cannot see the fundamental reasons why this is wrong, there really is no point.

          • Charles Harris

            I understand perfectly, you do not, he may not had more rights, but at that time there were a lot of whites treated just as bad as blacks, as a matter of point , black were not the first slaves in America, poor whites were, they were bought and sold just as the black slaves were. Again Phil was talking about a select few blacks that he worked with. He did not make a general statementt that all blacks were treated good or were happy, just those he worked with. So you are saying that not one black back then was happy.. Not all Plantation owners treated their black workers as slaves.. historical fact also.
            And no one said anything about rights, he said they were happy.. RIghts is a totally different subject. Adn I would agree with you the majority of blacks back then did not have the same rights as white and it was wrong. but you are blowing what Phil said way out of proportion. He is making a statement about a few folks he worked with and you are trying to lump them in with the majority.. I, you do not know, Period. what went on in those fields
            , or how those blacks felt .

          • mj01323

            Did you ever see such things with your own eyes, or did you merely read about it or hear some victimology lecturer tell you about it. If you grew up with Robertson in his area of northwest Louisiana in the fifties and sixties, your comments might bear consideration. Tell us what you have experienced.

          • mj01323

            How is it offensive to you, or anyone else, if Robertson tells you what his experience was growing up in pre-civil rights Louisiana? The term Jim Crow is yours, not Robertson's. You are obviously a biased, ignorant person. If you tell me what your life was growing up, who am I to say what you have said is the most offensive thing I've heard since… Get a life. No one else can see life through your eyes. Neither can you see life through the eyes of Phil Robertson as he lived it. It is time for some mature comment. Step up.

          • Amy Bee

            Pretty darned offensive, as I said earlier. What is ignorant is thinking that African Americans were happy under Jim Crow. That is ludicrous.

          • mj01323

            Are you saying African Americans were happy under Jim Crow? Phil Robertson did not say that. You need to quit making things up. My guess is that Phil Robertson gets along just fine with black people. You want to chastise him for sharing his experience. Perhaps you could share your experience with black people in northwest Louisiana in the early 60s. After all, you are the one who has taken up an offense for others.

          • ADisabledVet

            I guess you missed the part where he said… I was working beside them, we were white trash… So you think maybe for some reason… The white trash might have been treated better because they were white… They Were All Treated The Same

          • happygirl

            I couldn't have said it better.

          • scholar392000

            and again with the broad spectrum of redneck bashing, tisk, tisk, tisk

          • Amy Bee

            Are people really proud to be rednecks?

          • mj01323

            Are you proud to call yourself Amy Bee? Do you know anyone who is a redneck? Do you know anyone who does to believe exactly like you do?

          • nlebou

            Yes I am proud to be a Redneck. Do you know what it means? Or are you giving it your own definition?

          • Lynda

            They already knew what his answers would be. Again… I speculate that they may have wanted out of their contract.

        • 1mk

          God will always have his back, AMEN

          • Lynda

            Amen and Amen!

      • being stupid should be painful

        Can you say Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kartrashian, give me a break. Good for him and god bless him..its called the constitution

        • scholar392000

          well said.

        • Amy Bee

          What?

          • Lynda

            Something wrong with your reading comprehension? LOL

      • Eileen

        A&E also tried to put bleeps in as though they were beeping profanity when the was no profanity.

        • Amy Bee

          And for $200,000 per episode, guess who played along?

          • Lynda

            Guess who is getting out of their contract and going to another network? Dumb like a fox! LOL

          • bigwood

            is dumb like a fox better than dumb like a christian?

      • oilyslick

        Yes, Phil is entitled to his opinion. So are the people at GLAAD. Why does A&E kowtow to a fringe group but throw the Christian under the bus? Don't you people on the left tout “tolerance”? For a group who is progressive and enlightened, Leftists are really hateful. BUT… Leftists make up a considerable block of voters.

        • Amy Bee

          Phil signed a contract. He should have known better. He runs a duck-killing empire. How could he not know he was breaching his contract?

          • Lynda

            He knew. He cares more about Jesus than the show.

          • nlebou

            He does not run a duck killing empire. He has a duck call empire. Again you show your ignorance.

          • bigwood

            He sells tools specifically built to kill ducks so it is not that far a stretch

      • oilyslick

        “Cost him some money”? Do you think he has so little of it that this will cause him to alter his lifestyle in any way? Of course it won't. Even if it did, Phil and his family could live like kings on the revenue generated by their many other interests. And if they lost all of their business holdings they would thrive because of their outdoor skills and their faith. How many GLAAD people could?

        • Amy Bee

          No, but he's not doing the show for free, is he? I'm sure he likes the $200,000 per episode plus marketing income he was making.

          • Ashlee Salsbury

            The $200,000 per episode is divided between 9 adults and 11 kids. Duck commander company is worth in the multiple millions. A & E has the marketing on Duck Dynasty which they get some but the parent company gets the majority of it.

          • Amy Bee

            Ah, well, that's good then. No one will be tempted to stay for the money. It'll be off the air that much sooner.

          • Lynda

            The entire family doesn't care about the money or they wouldn't be leaving, now would they?

        • Earline Garner

          I am so sorry for you cause you are stupid, you ask how many glad people could survive well we been doing it since we glad people were brought here, put yourself in we glad people position and see if you could survive then make comments about my glad people idiot, when things get rough for some people as we have seen during the economy falling they opted for the weak way by taking their own lives, although we struggle a lot of us glad people know how to survive, right this butthead has a right to his own opinion I say we sre all God's children let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

          • VTDave

            Yes, you are God's children….. Now start acting like it! Got it?!!! You have an f'ing brain that gives you the power to overcome your damn urges. Got it?!!! You are not some lower animal that cannot control yourself. GLADD can piss off. Boy, it is hilarious just how OK it is for you to force your opinions and way of life on everybody else, under the false mantra of diversity, and tolerance, but the minute anybody has a different opinion it is hate speech or bigotry. BS!!! Nobody is stupid for believing that putting one's privates in places they do not belong is wrong!!!! Stick it in a damn hornets nest for all I care….. Just do not expect to succeed in forcing me, through activist judicial diktat, to accept it as healthy or normal.

      • scholar392000

        U are insinuating all rednecks are stupid, isn't that a bashing comment?

        • Amy Bee

          Redneckery generally implies the uneducated, so, by definition, yes, all rednecks are stupid. Is that bashing? I guess it feels that way if you are a redneck.

          • GirlI

            Some hate is okay, I guess, as long as someone is deemed “stupid” to you. Scary.

          • Amy Bee

            It's is the only language some people understand.

          • mj01323

            Your comments are entertaining if nothing else. So biased, how do you live with yourself?

          • Lynda

            She has mirrors in every room!

          • Amy Bee

            That is pretty much what I have learned here, too. Thanks for summarizing it for me.

          • mj01323

            Phil Robertson has a bachelor and master degree. By your definition he could not be a redneck. You are just a bigot.

          • ADisabledVet

            Pssst…. Red Neck… Red due to being tanned by working in the sun… working class. Farmers tan… Arms tanned due to working in the sun. Please stop.

          • Lynda

            Your ignorance is showing Any Pee.

          • nlebou

            Yes, I am proud of my heritage. You should educate yourself as to where the term “Redneck” came from.
            In Scotland in the 1640s, the Covenanters rejected rule by bishops, often signing manifestos using their own blood. Some wore red cloth around their neck to signify their position, and were called rednecks by the Scottish ruling class to denote that they were the rebels in what came to be known as The Bishop's War that preceded the rise of Cromwell.[21][22] Eventually, the term began to mean simply “Presbyterian”, especially in communities along the Scottish border. Because of the large number of Scottish immigrants in the pre-revolutionary American South, some historians have suggested that this may be the origin of the term in the United States.[23]

            In Northern England in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Roman Catholics were also known as rednecks.[24]

            That words like “redneck” and “white trash” are deemed acceptable while the “N-word” is not is proof that as Americans, by and large, we have been duped by the ruling classes into playing the race card. Both black slaves and some disenfranchised whites were cheated and lied to by society in the same manner.

          • Amy Bee

            Courtesy of Merriam-Webster:

            Redneck: a white person who lives in a small town or in the country especially in the southern U.S., who typically has a working-class job, and who is seen by others as being uneducated and having opinions and attitudes that are offensive.

        I find it funny how people think phil is dumb, if you do your research phil , willie ,jase, and jepp all have degrees in college and they aren't dumb.

        • Amy Bee

          They just play dumb on TV?

          • Lynda

            And you act ignorant on the internet????

          • Ericzipp

            Duh! It's funny to watch them acting dumb because that is what we do. Usually not in the extremes they do it but everyone who is honest with themselves can relate to it because we do stupid things. Seriously just reread some of the stuff you have posted here and you should be able to relate with stupidity instantly.

      • Lynda

        He had all the money he needed before they put him on tv. Christians will always choose Jesus over money. Perhaps he did the interview because they want out of their contract.

    • The Chaz

      This country is turning into a dictatorship because some old coot got kicked off a television show? Yeah, I'm tired of whiners too.

    • firewife

      I hope not one Robertson ever appears on A&E again. They certainly have enough money to stop doing the show. Even if they didn't I don't think they would care. God and Country that is what they stand for. Hurray for them!

      • bill choise

        Then they can have a Walmart fire sale on all that crap from chine with their logos and pictures on it. All phil did was show us how stupid he really is. Since his wife has to force him to take a bath before she has sex with him I do not think he would ever fit the mentors bill on religion

      • Amy Bee

        Man, I hope they don't do the show anymore either! Can't stand it.

        • James Wiley

          best show on tv!!

        • Lynda

          Someone propped your eyes open with toothpicks, tied you up in front of the TV and forced you to watch it? LOL

          • nlebou

            Probably never saw it.

    • bill choise

      Both in this case and in the Deen case they were taken out by White executives in the TV business because they violated some part of their contracts nothing more. If Phil has the right to free speech so do the networks

        Wow you are comparing Adolf Hitler to Phil Robertson. I am done talking to you because that is probably the most ridiculous come back ever.

          He told them to leave his country & the greedy ones stayed and paid a price.

      • John

        Adolf Hitler caused the death of millions of people. Phil Robertson hasn't killed anybody over his opinion. Also Hitler wasn't the star of a Television show.

        • Realists 1975

          Hmmmmm…and exactly how many people were killed by Christians during the crusades in the name of God and because of Christians belief in the Bible. So, to say that Christians have not caused the death of countless people because they didn't agree with their philosophy, or opinions is ridiculous!

      • web jones

        1st Hitler was a coward and killed himself, 2nd he was responsible for the murder of millions of Jews and 3rd why are you trying to compare crimes against humanity and someone expressing their Christian beliefs. I myself if Hitler was alive would put a bullet in his head and would shack Phil's hand for standing up for his beliefs no matter if you agree with them or not.

        • jjohnajamison

          First of all, never say “I myself.” Its about as bad as it gets as far as grammar is concerned. 2nd, its shake, not “shack”. And third, I agree with everything you've said.

        • Robert Wynn

          well put

          When someone gets compared to Hitler or the Nazis – the discussion is over, you can keep reaching but your arms wont grow.

            I stopped reading that silly book when I read that Adam has sex with his own daughters and Eve had sex with her own sons her sons. Then the sons and the daughters had them a big ol’ sex party and everybody was screwing everybody. YUCK! No, thanks, but no.

No wonder this country is heading to hell in a hand basket.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            First of all, Bush was not a “neo-conservative.” He was a liberal Republican phony, a liar who pretty much sided with Democrats on everything they wanted. Even the Iraq war had been supported by Democrats and their protectors in the media.

            Second, there IS at least SOME difference. For Democrats are allowed to nearly brag about stealing from the working people of the country, forcing everyone to behave according to the dictates of atheist humanism.

            At least a liberal Republican must lie to his voters. So if there is no light between the phonies like McCain, Boehner, Graham and the Bush family, there is most definitely a difference between ordinary people who will hire politicians to steal from their neighbors and those who at least try to put decent men in power.

          • Jim Evans

            Bush was as much as an Ass—- as Obama. He was a big liar too and should be charged with War Crimes as well as Dick Cheney. Why you ask ? Think about it.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            What is the law he violated and could thus be prosecuted for?

            Your inability to answer will provide a clue to the Democrat voter in general and why it is so easy for the professional liars at ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS to nudge them into electing the hateful neo-communist thugs who call themselves Democrats.

            Besides, Democrat voters LOVE bloodshed and war. Just look back through the last 100 years to see that nearly all of our wars were started by Democrat presidents. When Clinton bombed the citizens of Serbia to give Kosovo to terrorist Muslims, do you remember the street protests that ensued? No you don't because there were none.

            Liberal airheads taught what to think and when to protest by mind-control experts.

          • Jim Evans

            Well, it took me time to answer your ignorant question. Bush and his administration were behind the 9-11 attacks and i along with millions of others agree on. There is just to many unanswered questions about it . If you can't figure that out, then you are dumber than i thought. Do a lot of research and you will find out, i am right. Good Day.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            I guess you have yet to notice that a professional deceit machine is in existence that labors expressly for the purpose of smearing and lying about Republicans. Don't take that to imply any support of GW on my part. But nobody has proved a stinking thing.

            And even if they did, one has to add in so much information hushed up by the liars at ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS, such as the video showing like 30 Democrats ON TAPE expressing a desire to invade Iraq.

            Have you pondered yet why you and others are not asking for proof to justify Bill Clinton's invasion of Serbia? Two big problems, the lack of proof and the lack of anybody requesting as much.

          • Jim Evans

            Republicans always get the short end of the stick. Democrats always blame the other person { Fact }. It has been proven that there was no WMD's in Iraq . { Fact }. AS far as Bill Clinton, thousand didn't die there like in Iraq & Afghanistan. I see you didn't mention FOX news in your little post.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            Nobody has proved there were no WMD in Iraq. Just the opposite actually. In either case, that was NOT the major reason listed for the invasion. Only because of liars controlling ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS do the masses believe that.

            The liars began demanding proof BEFORE thousands died in Iraq. Beyond that, in World War I there was a day when 18,000 soldiers were killed, ONE DAY.

            And since you did mention Fox News, thanks for illustrating how easily you can be convinced to turn against a news operation for ZERO REASON. Go ahead, call my dare. Prove a single case where Fox News was caught lying such as the thousands of cases at ABC, NBC and CBS. Try it.

            The atheist elite teach gullible citizens to despise Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and others because in a free country that is one of only two ways they have to keep people from hearing truth. The other is threatening advertisers.

            What am I saying? Though I get news from many places, Fox News being way down the chain, your level of knowledge would be vastly improved even if only dropping the phony war against Fox and learning stuff rather than the propaganda.

          • Jim Evans

            Excuse me Dumb Ass, i never said anything bad about FOX news as it is my ” Favorite ” news source. I also like Rush Limbaugh, Michael Moore and the rest like them. The invasion of Iraq was G.W. Bush wanted revenge against Saddam for his father. G.W. Bush also admitted that the WMD intelligence was bad. Get your shit straight before trying to give some hell. Read correctly before opening mouth and inserting foot. Have a nice day.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            Your words: “I see you didn't mention FOX news in your little post.” Your words later: ” i never said anything bad about FOX news.” If no implication that FNC is awful, what would have been the point of your first mention?

            Why would GW want revenge for his father when his father had already won their exchange? The idea that you estimate your thinking skills as so excellent that anyone else should be called a dumb ass is terribly indicative of the situation we find ourselves in today.

            I did no inserting foot in mouth during our exchange, merely asked you to define the law that Bush should be prosecuted under according to your own desire. Let it be added that you have yet to provide the law. Instead of communicating, you decided the exchange should be an event for you to hurl insults from the intellectual perch you imagine yourself to be fluttering on.

          • Jim Evans

            Apparently thousand just like me say the same thing about Bush & Cheney. I guess we all can't be wrong now can we ? I am smarter than you think. You need o check up on things.

            The irony of a religious fanatic talking about people being brainwashed is hillarious

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            The professional liars have 5 main techniques:

            1. Ignore truth so the masses never find out. That would be the case when Bill Clinton gave nuclear capability to North Korea, bombed the Christian country of Serbia in order to help Muslims even his own State Department had called terrorist. Also when accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick.

            2. Turn their audiences against the speakers of truth. They have already succeeded with you, for example the term religious fanatic. Millions have naively allowed themselves to be turned against talk radio also, Sarah Palin, Fox News, essentially everyone the liars tell them to despise.

            3. Outright lie where deemed useful. More rare but my file has a few.

            4. Distort news by presenting one side and even then out of context. Here is where you find the hushing up of worldwide slavery in order to convince the masses that only white Americans took part. Also the hushing up of blacks who themselves were slave OWNERs, plus of course today's epidemic of violent racist attacks on white folks though going on for weeks whenever they can find a white guy in guilt.

            Same with so-called imperialism, once again omitting all news of what other countries were doing along with failing to even define imperialism. It is really sort of a lie because the US could not actually be an imperialist nation. Doing so requires, you know, an empire.

            5. Comedy is a blend of most items above. They get funny people to feed airheads too drugged for even paying attention to deceit on the propaganda-filled news shows. Thus, we end up with a nation filled with ignorant types flitting about laughing at the targets they have been taught to feel superior to.

            Anyway, you don't care about any of this stuff because your masters have never instructed you to care.

          • bigwood

            I agree with you in one way that anybody who gets a single point of news will not have a real view. I actually watch some of the channels you mention but also Fox news and even O’ Reilly sometimes as I do think it is important to get both views. All news is slanted NBC, CBS and ABC to the left and Fox to the right but trying to listen to Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush limbaugh, Glenn Beck is just painful to watch with their rabid stupidty and their hatred of the left skewing them of even basic sense and they just know if a Democrat did something it is wrong.

            I think most people know their were black slave owners and that the slaves own people sold them into slavery I did not know that is a debate. It does not change the fact the major majority of slave owners were white southerners.

            When we have riots like we did with Rodney King I think all involved should be thrown in jail. But are all white people thinking we should own slaves or protect the white race no. Do all black. people riot and lay on welfare no.

            People get the idea we are an imperialist nation because of our large military, economical and political footprint across the world. I do agree with the Libertarians on one point that we should not give away money we do not have across the globe, we should not fight in every war around the globe only to pay to rebuild it later.

            Not sure where you are getting your information about Clinton and North Korea but would it really surprise you? We arm Afganistan to fight Russia only to fight our own weapons later. We arm Iraq to fight Iran just to fight them later. We arm Iran to get our hostages back. We arm Israel with basically all forms of warfare including Nuclear arms and then get mad when we can't control their actions as they are in a land with neighbors that all want them dead. We should not be arming anybody nor fighting multiple wars in the middle east and wondering why people think we have an empire. Who has taken part in more wars than the United States have and with as many countries in the last 70 years?? Nobody

            Chasing terrorist in circles in the middle east does more harm than good. We could do much more with limited Seal team strikes than this giant cost of people, money and reputation our current path takes us

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            1. To say all news is slanted is a decent beginning but fails to look more deeply. First, one must distinguish between opinion shows and news. O'Reilly and Hannity are not even pretending to report “news.” Second the people at ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS are far more dangerous than just biased toward the liberal view. They are outright hateful Marxist liars.

            2. Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck appear stupid to you because the masses have been taught to believe the things uttered by them ARE stupid. It just isn't true though. That is a mind-control technique. I used to be one of the controlled and therefore have experience from both sides.

            3. Even I didn't know about black slave owners. And being an almost obsessively informed person, it seems a reasonable bet to me that plenty others are lacking the story too. As for most owners being white Southerners, first you must take into account that only 5% of all African slaves were even brought to the US, another little item left out of school teachings. Plus the slave owners in Africa were by percentage a lot more black than here. Either way, the distorted teaching is getting people killed. And that's a major part of the problem.

            4. 95% of American blacks vote for the neo-communist liars who call themselves Democrats. So for me suggesting that a streak of sameness runs through that community, all voting for the party that started the KKK, offers a valuable insight to the story of our political and social situation. And don't buy that cheap lie that all the racist Democrats joined the Republican Party in the 1960s. Sheesh, the liars on the left will try anything.

            5. Nearly every government on Earth is worried about the crazy North Vietnam dictatorship. Handing them nuclear capability represents an act of sheer insanity. Add to that how the liars in the media never told anyone, leastwise not in a way to penetrate the collective consciousness of the country. Israel is too big a story for getting into now. But let me offer this one hushed-up part of the story. The Jews BOUGHT the land they live on. That alone should be enough for everybody.

            6. The war on terror is not something I support. From my view, we have a farrrrrrrr more dangerous enemy and threat in the form of professional liars daily misleading the world pretending to be news reporters and truly mucking things up. Expose the Satanic elite on that level and nobody would be left offering cover to the little terrorist wannabees.

          • bigwood

            I used to watch Glenn Beck when he was on CNN and he actually had some reasonable ideas on financial conservatism but the wheels came off when he joined fox. I tried to watch him but his many attempts to paint Obama as Hitler were just stupid and everything goes from there. Sarah Palin just flat out lacks intelligence and has simply parlayed her brief run for office into a lifetime of reality tv, speeches etc. I don't believe she has any interest in any office and is simply in it for the money at this point and offers as much as intelligence to the conversation as Ann Coulter. Anybody left or right that just has a rabid hatred of the other side I have no use for in politics or talk shows and I think helps destroy our country. So whether it is Beck, Limbaugh, Combs, Palin or Olberman, Helms, Maddow and Mathews I think they all do a disservice to America.
            Like it or not our country will always have a left and a right and most in the middle that have to quit calling each other names and find things we agree on and move forward.
            I am not sure I see your point about the slave percentages clearly Americans did bring slaves here and it was wrong and I don’ know that the percentages really matter to me. I think we do have an obligation to make sure everyone in America including slave descendants have a shot though the amount of help I think America owes to not just black Americans but also native Americans is probably less than most Democrats. But education to help pull themselves up absolutely. Welfare I think needs deadlines on it for people Though I think some exist currently.
            White Confederate Southerners started the KKK and whether they called themselves Democrats then clearly they would not belong to the current Democratic Party as I don't believe Abe Lincoln would be a Republican either. Not sure it matters where the parties were 150 years ago but more where they are now. Or the fact they seemed to flip flopped somewhere along the line.
            I don't believe Democrats are neo Communist Liars but I would go as far as to say they Democrats believe in a democratic government that has some social responsibility to all of it's people that the right would call Socialism and rightfully so. Their is a big difference in that and Communism where the government owns and controls everything including private property we are still very much a Democracy and we vote on how to be taxed and how to spend the money which clearly is not a Communist Country or party

          • bigwood

            One thing I wish everyone would think about when it comes to the Israeli people and their country and how nobody has any tolerance for the Palistinians or acknowledge that part of the major issues with Jews and Arabs is the fault of British and American Foreign policy as the Jews were exiled by the Romans before Christ birth and Jews largely did not occupy the country (some remained but not in large numbers or in control of any government) for Hundreds of years as it passed hands and conquered from several different countries until the late 1800 Jews began occupying Israel in large numbers again fleeing from Europe only to have England seized control of the country after World War I and Jewish settlements expanded until in 1948 when England and the UN handed over the country to the new Jewish state Israel. So when you say they paid for their country who did they pay? This clearly left Arabs who live there out in the cold and is a source of that fighting to this day. We now call them terrorist and Hamas clearly are but as I said before whether somebody is a terrorist or a Freedom fighter really depends on your point of view.

            The Point is no other place on earth would we recognize a persons right to land because they owned it 2500 years ago. The only common sense solution to the mess is to have a separate Arab state but simply telling the Arabs they have no country since England seized control of their country and never gave it back of course their will be no peace under this scenario. Would we except say Russia taking control of America and giving it back to the Native Americans. Hell no we would burn it to the ground first and we have had total control of this country for less than 200 years. So if we went by the Jewish model the Native Americans have a far better claim to the US than Israel has to their land

            Chemical weapons are legally classified in the WMD category. Look it up.

          • Beverly

            They found “chemical” weapons, NOT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, WHICH THEY CLAIMED WAS THE REASON FOR THE WAR. If we went to war every time another country was inhumane against it's own people, we would never have peace. Bush claimed Iraq's weapons posed a threat to America, which they never did! I do read and get my info from multiple sources, no 5 minute time bites on Fox Network. Fox is right wing political dribble. It's sounds like you've drunk the Kool-Aid! Where's your compassion for our troops whose lives were wasted on the battlefield for a political prompted LIE You so called flag wavers are a fraud. You don't really stand up for the welfare and safety of our troops.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            Beverly, do yourself this little favor: Determine whether there was ever proof found for Bill Clinton's invasion of Serbia.

            What, no question of searching for proof from the media?

            Yeah, that's the point. Democrat starts a war, no questions are asked. Republican does, we get years of airheads marching.

            Also know this: When discussing WMD prior to the invasion, almost none of that ever made the news at all because the professional liars at ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS were against the action.

            That means that ordinary people were not convinced to support any war based on WMD, but rather based on other arguments.

            Such as Saddam paying Muslim murderers $25 thousand each for killing civilians in suicide bombings.

            Either way, why are you not upset with the Democrats over Iraq? THEY voted almost unanimously in support. So lay off of the liberal GW already. He is a piece of crap in my view, but hardly guilty for this fake outrage by the media elite and Democrats

            Its a fact Iraq had chemical weapons because they used them on their own people and in wars against other countries. Read up on your history and facts and stop drinking the liberal cool aid. This country is in dire trouble because people like you can't open their eyes and see what's going on. Try thinking for yourself and not listen to what the liberal media is telling you. If people would stop being lazy and try doing some research of their own, maybe this country wouldn't be so messed up right now. Nobody pays attention they just go on about their business listening to the morons on TV.

            Really, dude, are you willing to just swallow whatever is said by the hateful atheist liars on the left? Reagan sent chemical weapons to Iraq? And you need no evidence other than 42 words in a book by some kook.

          • bigwood

            I suppose Reagan did not sell arms to Iran illegally either?

          • bigwood

            just made up by liberals and Ollie North

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            When you have Democrats actively laboring to destroy their own country, advance worldwide communism, poison the minds of children, steal from citizens and pass laws like the Boland Amendment, I will admit Reagan may have ran an end-run around those hateful Satanic creeps in finding ways to help the Sandanistas in Nicaragua by way of perhaps adding Iran to the list of nations we sold weapons to.

            Areas like this are kind of complicated for the airheads who vote, plus getting around the professional liars at ABC, NBC and CBS if openly telling the public. So I guess he decided stopping the liberals from conquering another country in Central America was worth violating a law passed by the demonic Democrats.

          • bigwood

            Lost on you is that Reagan signed the Boland Amendment into law. Reagan helped pass the law from our legal three branches of government elected by the people. Then Reagan ignored it and the funny thing is I never heard words like impeachment from the right about Reagan even though they think Clinton should be impeached for getting a blow job and lying about it???

            By the way paying taxes and people voting on how to spend those taxes is a far cry from communism. You might not like it but a far cry from communism. I am always amazed to hear the people rant against Obamacare and how in your words the left push us to Communism only to say how much they love Social Security and Medicare (which by the way got the same backlash when it was passed). It is fucking insane. The great thing about America is when politicians pull too far left we change course and when politicians pull too far right we do the same (I am sure you do not believe there is such thing as too far right) a far cry from communism.
            It is funny how you crucify Clinton for getting involved in Bosnia (which I agree I think we have no place in Civil wars) but praise Reagan for helping Contras in yet another civil war? Neither side of either of those wars with clean hands. Close as I can tell you base your foreign policy beliefs only on if you think you can see a shred of evidence their is a Christian on either side. We should be involved in none of it including Israel if they decide to start bombing Iran even if they are not attacked.
            By the way your history is a little skewed as the Contras Reagan was helping were rebels trying to overthrow the FSLN who were in power in 1981 and won national elections in 1984. so I am not sure where you got that Liberals were trying to conquer a country? Democrats were trying to stay out of a civil war in accordance with international law.
            The Contras adopted a rape, murder torture approach to freedom fighting to force the overthrow they sought. None of these sides has clean hands in these wars and they should be left to fight them. you would think we would learn after Vietnam, supporting Bin Laden to fight Russia only to fight him. Supporting Saddam to fight Iran only to fight him. Supporting Gaddafi only to help oust him later. Supporting Mubarack only to finally give way to freedom. Egypt may well have dumped him earlier had he not had US support.
            Non of these governments are worth the US loosing lives and money for.
            I know before you even have to say it International law is made by Liberal scum and we should do as we please regardless of what anybody else on the planet thinks because America was made by God for the Christians to do all their good deeds and fight all the appropriate wars.

            One man's Freedom fighter is another man's Terrorist that is why we should stay out of all civil wars even if the people we want to win are not winning

            There were really WOMD. The media just didn't report on it. Do your homework! Don't believe the lies>

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            If you would stop getting news from professional liars, then by this date in history a decade later you would know that weapons WERE in Iraq. Everybody knew that. The only question is where they went. Yet the liars needed a wedge to convince liberal airheads to take out Bush. So suddenly the history of acknowledged WMD in Iraq that were even deployed against the Kurds got hidden in the closet.

            Know that i am not even a Bush fan. Nor was I for invading Iraq. But that doesn't mean I will sit hear and watch another victim of that juvenile lie about no WMD without speaking up.

          • bigwood

            News Flash all politicians are liars: Regan ” I do not recall selling weapons to Iran”. Old Bush “read my lips no new taxes”. Clinton”I did not have sexual relations with that woman”. New Bush “Iraq has weapons of Mass destruction”, “Waterboarding is not torture”. and yes Obama miss lead the public that they could keep their old health plans.
            Though I think Old Bush and Obama simply did not realize what they said would not be able to actually happen.
            New Bush, Clinton and Regan were simply liars

            You apparently have trouble with the actual definition of the word liar. I recommend correcting that lapse in knowledge before laboring to lob insults during the war for and against truth impacting this planet today.

            Be advised: ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS are controlled by liberal atheist liars. Each of those descriptions represents a factual application of reality.

            Now occasionally when in combat against the useful idiots of our land a conservative might confuse an item in history, for example. That would not be a lie at all, but rather a mistake.

            And even there, the occasion is far more rare than the instances of silly liberals who dash around the globe parroting the deceitful garbage fed to them for twelve YEARS at the indoctrination center plus whatever favorite entertainment or news liar they drink from.

            People on the right with good reason begin calling ignorant airhead liberals libtards. Then some of them, I see by your comment, apparently like the ring of the term, so begin using it completely lacking justification in the reverse direction.

            The sad fact is that people who vote for Democrats are a disgrace to the idea of intellect and moral responsibility. In that regard,they are effectively retarded if only due to either choosing to remain ignorant or so easily swallowing the lies of NPR and fake news from the other atheist liars such as at ABC, NBC and CBS.

          • J Rad52

            Your remarks are so ignorant. You have been deceived. The sad truth is that there are just as many republican gays and atheists as democrat. The difference is that conservatives will not admit it and the liberals will. If you are a true Christian (as I am) You should join a good Christian church,and read the Bible.Stop letting Fox news tell you how to think and what to believe. All news networks have an agenda. Christians should be concerned with the Kingdom of Heaven.

          • You think you're a Christian? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That's a good one, tell us another funny story…

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            My remarks are not ignorant or based on having been deceived. Your contention about gay or atheist Republicans first is made up but second makes no difference toward my position anyway.

            I will grant you that the phony Republican liberals do lie to voters. Yet the communist control-freak Democrats lie to their voters too.

            Fox News does not supply my knowledge except for as with many news operations providing tidbits. And if failing to understand the difference, it is you who should seek a new church.

            And by the way, helping people grasp where Satan is laboring, which humans are doing his work, those are matters pertaining to the Kingdom of Heaven. Again, a new church is recommended. Most people are simply living the years being fed robot food for church zombies, year after year sleeping through stale history tales about the Bible and family counseling advice from girly-men funny pastors rather than living in our actual world.

            They can't even be found rescuing their own children from Satan schools, yet sing to Jesus and think of themselves as understanding what living for God means.

          • bigwood

            So per your view republicans like Ted Haggard or Larry Craig become Democrats once they start sucking dick. Or that Dick Cheney is not a Republican because he believes in Gay marriage? Contrary to the want of the religious nut jobs is though most Christians are Republican does not mean all Republicans are Chritians

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            The Republican Party is populated by about 90% cowards, liberal phonies who lie to get elected. At least they have to lie though. With Democrat voters, you get to brag about being a pervert, a thieving communist and still win their support.

            Cheney IS a Republican. He is also a phony for calling himself conservative, just like GW Bush. Even then, I don't think he claimed to support gay marriage. That was his deluded daughter. If Dick too, I would not be surprised.

            Ha, religious nut jobs on one side, arrogant atheist nut jobs on the other. Quite a mess. At least one of them is aware enough to comprehend the obvious (that science proves life without supernatural help would be impossible), though still to a large extent screwy in other ways.

          • bigwood

            the only “Science” that proves there is a supernatural power is the “science” called creationist science. Most Science starts with a hypothesis, test are run, studies are done and then they come up with a conclusion. Creationist “Science” runs backwards and draws all their conclusions from a book of nonsense first and then tries to make the facts fit. That is not science.
            Something tells me you are a big Ted Cruz for President fan

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            You said: ‘the only “Science” that proves there is a supernatural power is the “science” called creationist science’

            Forgot about these:

            1. First Law of Thermodynamics
            2. Law of Information
            3. Laws of Statistical Probability
            4. Law of Biogenesis

            Whether you like hearing about reality or otherwise, the “science” community surrounding evolution is NOT following the principles described in your post. They actually arrived at the conclusion first and have been cramming facts into it for 200 years, that while with their accomplices in the media hushing up what is going on and how their little play thing non-god story is a joke among those who care about science.

            Your contention that the creation crowd is unbending can be easily shown wrong by virtue of how many accept the Gap Theory if we only go that one length. I don't accept the Gap Theory. Either way, it represents a huge example of non-conformity from one side or the other within the creation crowd.

            As for Ted Cruz, do you even have a single thing known that should be used against the man? I don't know the story all that well other than he appears to possess more guts and integrity than the entire gang of liberal Republican phonies or the demonic neo-communist liars who call themselves Democrats. As politicians go, perhaps you can enlighten me what there is to dislike about him.

            Don't let all your thoughts on these huge life and death matters be fueled by professional liars. They are actually real easy to figure out. Just do yourself the tiny favor of heading over to MRC org for a look around. Stay an hour. That should help you become unlocked from the deceit merchants. Then more doors will begin opening.

          • bigwood

            As for Ted Cruz people that believe government should be shut down and simply get nothing done or refuse to compromise to get something done don't belong in government. Like it or not people on the left, right and middle are in this thing together and when either side takes a view that the other side is just evil so we won't negotiate are just wasting even more time and money than the people they think they are fighting.

            As far as your list of science none of them prove there has to be a supernatural power not even close. If looking at biogenisis or thermodynamics whether you believe in the big bang theory or god they both take an equal belief that something whether life, energy or God started from nothing or has always been. Neither theory has a leg up on the other in that regard either God or life and energy have always been or came from nothing.

            Are you saying that the statistical probability of the big bang theory and life is too far a reach to believe it happened therefore an all knowing and all powerful God must exist who can see through all time and create a world in 6 days? That makes no sense do you not think the statistical probability of an all powerful being are way worse than the alternate theory. The idea that scientific probability of us being here is so statistically not probable that it makes all science void therefore a God must exist because he is God and does not have to bend to the laws of Science is crazy from a scientific standpoint as all theories including Creationism have to stand up to the same scientific laws. Using science to eliminate current theories but giving creationism a pass as it is supernatural is not a scientific method and makes no sense. I am sure having the Earth here with life on it is a longshot in nature which is why we are not littered with many planets with life on them but the idea that in the whole Universe it could not happen is crazy mainly because whether by God or by Science we are all here so clearly it is possible or we would not be having this conversation

            From a religious stand point I get it all things are possible with God, Heard it many times,but from a scientific standpoint saying we can not currently explain something therefore a supernatural power must exist is ludicrous.
            I highly doubt that we have figured out all the details to. Evolution or the big bang theory as we still are learning basic things like Pluto is not a planet but they are the best theories running.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            1. You don't know that Ted Cruz is unwilling to compromise, only that liars in the Democratic Party and their protectors in the atheist media say such a thing. They always use that weapon on Republicans. And Republicans nearly always compromise. Be it known that compromise to Democrats means giving them the heart and soul of their desires, but leaving out a wee bit of skin that can be added in later.

            2. Those laws most definitely DO prove there had to be a creator because they prove there could have been no life without one.

            3. I did not say statistical probability proves the world was created in six days. Only that it had to have been done with guidance and supernatural power because it could not have occurred by chance. THEIR laws, not mine. And while that (the idea of a God creator being) is weird, to which even I agree, it is more weird to contend that it could have been done otherwise. Also, it's kind of strange living on a planet filled with atheist liars dodging the entire challenge and controlling schools so their religion of evolution is fed to young children, their daily deceit fed to adults on ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS.

            4. We are here. Thus there must be a reason. Science proves life without help impossible. Thus intelligent design. Yes, I am willing to submit that science therefore proves supernatural power, leastwise supernatural based on our current understanding. Bear in mind that radio waves would have been considered supernatural to kings of times gone by not too long ago. So when all is revealed it might be the power was here and detectable all along. We just didn't see it.

            You say, and honestly, that we still have more to learn about evolution. Between you and me, that's okay. But one thing is definite. There are atheist liars pushing the story on the world. And evolution IS nothing more than a story from the imagination of some men. It all starts with an if, for example if this fossil were placed between these other two, one can envision a resemblance.

            The whole situation is kind of like looking at clouds and seeing real things. It plays on the imaginations of humans. The problem is that one needs 50,000 transitions to get from one species to another. At best, and even then only BELIEVING one may have led to another, the evolution community offers ONE transitional fossil, never bothering to produce, never being asked for, the 49,999 others. We are talking JRR Tolkien here, a complex fantasy world that really isn't all that complex if one spends enough hours taking apart the pieces. Have a look at some of the creation videos at youtube. It opens a fascinating world of wonder. Go with, “Darwin's Dilemma” if wanting another title for consideration. Excellent piece of work.

          • bigwood

            I did not disagree with your laws of science just your conclusions. None of those laws come to a conclusion of a supernatural power that is your conclusion for science that is not yet explained. I am willy to understand that our knowledge of science is still beginning but to jump to the conclusion that since it is not explained must be a supernatural power is not science was my point.

            Ted Cruz said he would except nothing short of a repeal of Obamacare (not a trick I saw him say this with my own eyes). A law that was passed by people we voted into office, debated by the Supreme court for it's legality and brought up again at a Presidential election in which the people voted Obama back in office. You may think he is wrong or right but he does definitely not compromise (and is very proud of that fact by the way).

            I am ok with religion being taught where it should be at a church. Should our schools really teach every religions theory of how we got here and their philosophies or are you thinking just the Christian theory.

            Science settling on evolution is a little more than this fossil looks like this fossil. There are many people to discuss this better than me but if you take a simple thing like the fact we share most of our DNA with Chimpanzees. Or the Flu how once we begin to control it it evolves into something different or common bacteria that become immune to our medicines. The problem is evolution will happen too gradually to ever have somebody that believes in God believe it. There is no doubt we see things evolving in simple things like Elephants increasingly not born with trunks so they are not slaughtered. whereas it used to be about 1% born without trunks now it is close to 14%. Could be evolution or natural selection as the 1% that had no trunks survived more and took over the gene pool. Did man come from a monkey? That science has not been proven at this point but is a lot more believable than a supernatural power making everything

          • bigwood

            One other point as far as creationism versus science is my biggest problem with creationist is that they start out with a book of facts and then try to make science prove it exist which can't be done. But just like I am not impressed with Nostradamas and everyone trying to make history fit what he wrote after the fact the same is true for creationist. If you want me on board for creationism let them tell me exact events that will happen in the future and that the Bible predicts and we will see instead of taking an event that has happened and cram it into the context of the bible

            you missed the whole point moron which was it is up to the network to decide what they want to broadcast and because it is cable it is not regulated by the FCC in the Puritan manner the christians thinks it should and Miley's network decided they did not mind Miley shaking her ass and is to most intelligent people (Christians excluded of course) Miley shaking her ass is less offensive than ignorant redneck rants on the Bible and all the nonsense in the book of Jewish fairtales. I also love how Phil's comments on blacks were better off picking others people cotton and siniging in the fields just get lost and this became about just his gay rants which I am not sure why it offend anybody as we already know that all dumbass christians believe the same stupid shit about gays going to hell.

            The whole point is she is on private tv. Which means they will broadcast whatver they want to and if you don't like it don't buy it. It is a moot point anyway as A and E will bring Phil back after the dust settles down as they make too much money on Duck Dynasty not to, I actually like duck dynasty.

            none of his remarks were bigoted. anyone who thinks so is a product of decades of brainwashing from the liberal media and liberalism in general. which is hard to believe because liberals are sooo smart…just ask them. a liberal can be lead to believe anything. every comment phil robertson made was right on the money. liberalism is treason

            So none of his remarks were bigoted? I'm a black man born in Alabama in 1952. When I was a young man the only job a black could get was manual labor. For those who were uneducated they were happy to have work and they worked hard. We who finished high school and went to college had to either work for a black owned business,start our own business or move away. I was happy to join the military and eventually move to California. Many black people enjoyed living in the south. That much is true. But many also moved up north for a better standard of of living.

            Still waiting for you to explain what he said was bigoted. You gave no example. Quit being discontent. You live in the greatest country on earth and have had nothing but opportunity your whole life. This country has balanced the scales for more people than all other countries combined. America has created more wealth and spread more freedom than any country known to man. Quit your whining. You need to spend more time listening to real men like Phil Robertson and less time listening to liberal socialist filth like Jesse jackass, Al ‘not so’ Sharpton and the biggest liar on the planet Barak Hussein Obama. Anyone who can't make it in this country is a lazy worthless pathetic slug.

            greatest country on earth?then why is it so low on every list among the developed countries?Education,healthcare,nr of ppl in jail(you are on top there)and most important,the lvl of happiness(I know,a bit abstract,but still,the polls are in,and you dont come out good).

          • stockmarketpig

            Low on what lists and who decides the validity of these lists? the filthy unpatriotic socialist democrat party? who made these ‘lists'. you liberals really dont get that you are being lead around by the nose? that you cant think for yourself?you go to college and are bombarded all day by socialists who hate this country then you think you are gonna enlighten us all. you are all so tolerant until someone doesnt agree with you. phoney lives, phoney rage. sure our schools are rotting…but only because the liberals run them. wake up, kids are not taught anymore, they are indoctrinated and you are asleep at the wheel. our healthcare was the best on the planet before obamacare, unless you think healthcare is a right. let me enlighten you…you get healthcare IF you can afford it. you get groceries IF you can afford them, you get a cell phone IF you can afford it. If someone individually wants to give you something that is their personal right but you do not take by force from those who work hard and give to lazy slobs who refuse to work, who are here illegally, who decided to dismiss the adults in their life and screw around in school and experiment with drugs and alcohol then wake up one day with no life, no skills no money and demand that the minimum wage (the minimum wage should be zero- the people who front the money and earn the money decide how much money to pay-not the socialist government stealing from patriots to give to lazy filth) so they can just have more money and demand that they are given free healthcare. there is no free healthcare, someone has to pay for it. work or starve.

            Uhm,I`m actually not american,born and live in Norway,and these lists are made by such funny things as international statistics,wether it be the UN collecting nrs,science journals,humanist organisations etc,not some leftists agenda seeking to ridicule and undermine the U.S.you guys make it unneeded,you have become a laughingstock in the rest of the world with your birthers and young earth creationists etc,its all a fucking joke and akin to entertainment/comedy for us to see what comes out of the good ole Muricah nowadays.We actually have public healthcare where i live,and in most of europe as well,paid by taxes,and it works just fine,and has done so for decades,but i guess you would prefer the old true and tested version where the insurance agencies say what treatment you get,instead of the doctors,i mean,why have the doctors determine what care you should get,when a guy with a calculator can do it instead eh?

            Talk about a joke, did u read your reply? the U.N.? humanist organizations? ha ha ha laughing at you. you have drank the koolaid brother. those are all socialist groups. everyone at the U.N. except for Israel hates America. it's called jealousy. they hate us and Israel because we are the best at everything. you saidyour country has had healthcare paid by taxes for years…ha ha ha you don't get it do you? that is socialism. you get healthcare if you can afford it not because The govt. is stealing it through taxes from someone else who works for a living. You are a joke and countries like Norway are a joke. you have had your mind and the ability to think and reason objectively stolen from you. you are babbling idiot. young earth creation? you better believe it. show me anything anywhere on this planet that is older than 5000-6000 years old. you third world socialists have been indoctrinated so long you can't even communicate effectively. brothers? name me or show me ONE piece of proof that that piece of garbage Obama has shown to proof he was born here. it hasn't happened yet. to this day he has not show a shred of evidence. but of course that is good enough for communists & socialists. they don't need proof or verification, they do what they are brainwashed to do, obey.

            It is always funny listen to religious people who are damn near rabid about Jesus say how much they don't want poor and lazy people to have healthcare. WWJD? Do we really have Christians who believe Jesus would not want healthcare for poor or even lazy people to protect the wealth of anybody. That is a real funny interpretation of the Bible.

            First of all my comment had nothing to do with food. I think Mathew 35 (written below) gives a broader view of where Jesus is coming from on sick, poor, hungry and less fortunate people. Jesus also says to give your wealth away to the poor so I guess you are okay with the welfare system and higher taxes for the rich also right? Of course this is a moot point since the Bible is horseshit anyway!!!

            for I was a hungered, and
            ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye
            took me in: 36 naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was
            in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,
            Lord, when saw we thee a hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee
            drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed
            thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the
            King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, In as
            much as ye have
            done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

            Just look at the Peace Index (which ranks countries based on unemployment, crime, health and education) and actually the majority of the countries at the bottom of the list are also the most religious. Some of the most prosperous and safest countries are atheist/agnostic primarily countries.
            It's amazing that in 2014 people are still basing their thoughts on an ancient book of fiction wrote by man. And at that they pick and choose from what they think or view is right. Let's keep this ancient text of fiction alive and perhaps if you believe in such a nonsense book you should practice all of what lies in the book.

            Sorry but its actually the government that determines what treatments you get. Good luck with that, when the money runs out and they have to start rationing healthcare.

          • vampyr64

            Education: Sure when it comes to public education(government run go figure) we're low on the list. When you look at private schools and universities however we consistently outperform every other country on the planet.

            Healthcare: Well that is due to certain abstract measurements that are used, such as infant mortality. What they don't tell you however is interesting little tidbits like the U.S. holds itself to the highest standards when it comes to infant births. Unlike most other countries, if the baby is born alive, it is considered as such and thus its death counts. Most other nations have requirements such as the baby being of a certain weight or surviving a given amount of time. It's easy to score high when you set your sights low.

            Happiness: Well the truth is that we are a very passionate people and we get a lot done, unlike many other nations. People like that tend not to be as happy. It's a tradeoff I admit, but not one that really bothers me.

          • Joe

            that may be true but phil didnt say all black people were happy he said the one's he worked with were. He is speaking about the people he knew not every black person in America

            Lots of people go through their day and don't complain. Doesn't mean they're happy, and doesn't mean Phil Robertson is any sort of expert or spokesperson for any African American. Even the ones he claim he worked along side.

          • stockmarketpig

            no one said he was an expert, not even him. but he is an expert on his personal experiences and that is all he commented on. it was a one on one interview and he answered questions according to his personal experience. he said that with his own eyes he never saw a black person mistreated and that to him they seemed happier back then as to opposed to now. he gets to comment on his life and life experiences as he saw them. you cant argue with that. now my opinion…. the filthy socialist racist democrat party has destroyed the American black culture. through welfare, entitlements and the hoax that they are held down by whites, the democrats have turned black Americans into nothing but a skin color and a vote. What a sick bunch the American democrat party is. liberalism is treason

            I think Phil's comments are not so much bigoted as they are ignorant but when your and his basis of this is a book of fairy tales where the only way a God can forgive his people is to make a son and then torture and kill him and he sends his people to hell for all eternity because he loves them and his “chosen” (Jews) people are all going too hell because they don't believe Jesus is the Messiah. If this is the book Phil is quoting I am with you not sure why anybody cares what he quotes from an idiotic book like that.

          • stockmarketpig

            It took a bit to respond to you, I had to quit laughing first. It always amazes me when people who have never read the Bible or studied it in any way try to quote it or make generalizations about it. “God made himself a son then tortured and killed him” ???? God did not make himself a son. Jesus Christ is God. Read John 1:1-14, read Colossians 1:15, read revelation 1, read Hebrews 1. read exodus 3:15 then immediately read john 8:58 to see who Jesus is. God came down and sacrificed himself to save people like you and me from ourselves. Your response is to call it a fairytale. God is perfect and can have no imperfection in his presence. So since we are imperfect (by our own choosing) we cannot be in his presence. Man has no excuse. The first man was made perfect and was given all he needed. He rebelled on his own. An ultimate sacrifice had to be made. So God, being perfect came down (of his own free will, he was not made) to earth as a human and suffered the most horrendous torture so that anyone who accepted that act would be found innocent in God's eyes and could be allowed in God's presence. So he took on himself the punishment you and I deserve. So , in essence he got what he didn't deserve (rejection, torture, death, rejection) so that you and I and everyone else could get what we don't deserve (forgiveness, clear conscience, everlasting life in God's presence). What you call a fairytale has never once been wrong in history, science, nature, archaeology. To the contrary, it has been proved correct time and time again. You are sadly mistaken and have bought into the dark lie of liberalism. Liberalism, which by the way, destroys everything it touches. It always amazes me how easily duped some people can be. Evolution? Which is smarter, to believe you came from nothing or to believe you came from something. I see what people mean by people being religious zealots. You religious zealot humanists will believe anything. There is no bigger fairytale than evolution. A fairytale for adults. Merry Christmas.

            you have to be the only Christian I have ever heard argue that Jesus is not God's son. Try John 3:16 dumbass “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” and by the way quoting nonsense to backup nonsense really does not make a lot of sense. Before you try to explain the holy trinity I already have heard that nonsense too.

            I think you are right though I don't want to believe I came from nothing so I think I will make a history where I come from a land of magic gum drops and rainbows. (Poof) now when I die I get to be in the clouds with gum drops and rainbows

          • stockmarketpig

            once again you prove my point that you dont read or study the Bible. i never once said that Jesus was not God's son. I said that God did not, in your words, ‘make himself a son'. God is not made, Jesus is the creator of everything, read colossions 1:15, 2:9. If he created all things, how is he created. Jesus is not God's son like humans have sons. I have 4 sons through normal human sexual relations. that is not what is being talked about regarding Jesus. he was there at the beginning of creation. where by the way you make another mistake when you ask, if God has to be surrounded by perfection why didnt he make people perfect…he did! Adam and Eve had no sin and were perfect. They were given a perfect world and scripture says God walked and talked with Adam in the garden. Man chose to rebel and sin against God. And God still made a way to save them, he came down as Jesus Christ. Jesus is God, the Father is God and the Spirit is God. There is one God manifest in three distinct persons. Three whos and one what…three persons..one God. like the egg..you hava a shell, the white and the yolk, but one egg. the bible even starts by addressing the three in Genesis 1:26 God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…” what is meant by the word ‘us'? If this is the beginning and man has yet to be created who is God talking to when he says let ‘us’ make man? he is talking to the other 2 persons of the trinity..the son (Jesus and the Spirit). And again in Isaiah 6:8 scripture says, Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” why does God say, “who will go for us”? again the three persons of the trinity are interacting. And again In Genesis 19 when all three persons of the trinity (disguised as men but referred to as God by Abraham and his nephew Lot) meet Abraham. One stays with Abraham, the others go to Sodom to warn Lot of the destruction of the city because of rampant homosexualitiy. what you fail to see is that Jesus Christ had no beginning. Jesus Christ created the whole world and all mankind and every plant and ocean, all of it. When it was time to save humanity he came down to earth as a baby born of a virgin and grew up as a human and experienced life as a human while all the time still being God. Jesus was 100% God and 100% man all in one human body. He veiled his glory and humbled himself like an obedient son to show humans the way to salvation. It was the only way it could be done. How else do you teach humans..you use a human. In his mercy he left the glory of heaven and came down to earth and put his money where his mouth was. He endured the torture and rejection of the very people he created so that they would have a chance to be saved. since he was perfect they could accept his resurrection and perfection and it would be laid to their account and when judgement day comes, God the Father will see the perfection of God the Son in the lives of those who accept him and now they can enter the perfection of heaven. That is why in John 1:29 John the baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! In those days before Jesus crucifixion sins were covered by the sacrifice of animals which would temporarily cover the people's sins until the ultimate sacrifice would come (Jesus Christ -the God/man). Only, when he sacrificed himself it would not cover the sins but would take them away forever.

            As far as your question of when has the Bible been proven right. When has it ever once been proven wrong? to this date not one piece of archaeological evidence, historical date, people places or times have disproved one sentence of scripture. to the contrary, scripture has made fools of those who try to discredit it.

            It was once thought by Bible critics that the Hittite people did not exist. they thought this not because they had done great research or had outstanding proof. The naysayers simply concluded that since the only mention of the Hittites were in the Bible and no where else and since they had concluded that the Bible was a work of fiction and couldnt possibly be true, therefore the Hittites were an imaginary people spoken of in an imaginary book…until archaeologistis uncovered the entire hittite library and civilization. Or when the Bible detractors denied that babylon existed (wrong again). or when the Ebla tablets were discovered. the tablets named 5 cities of the Babylonian empire. the Bible had already named those 5 cities and consequently the names were in the exact same order on the tablets as they were in the Bible.
            Or, For example, until 1993 there was no proof of the existence of King David or even of Israel as a nation prior to Solomon. Then in 1993 archeologists found proof of King David’s existence outside the Bible. At an ancient mound called Tel Dan, in the north of Israel, words carved into a chunk of basalt were translated as “House of David” and “King of Israel” proving that he was more than just a legend. –

            Or, R.D. Wilson who wrote “A Scientific Investigation of the Old Testament” pointed out that the names of 29 Kings from ten nations (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and more) are mentioned not only in the Bible but are also found on monuments of their own time. Every single name is transliterated in the Old Testament exactly as it appears on the archaeological artifact – syllable for syllable, consonant for consonant. The chronological order of the kings is correct. -

            I could go on for weeks on end. you cant disproof the Bible. It is not just a historical document, it is the historical document. i apologize for earlier sarcasm and hope you had a Merry Christmas

          • bigwood

            I think you speak in circles clearly Jesus did not make himself. He did not impregnate Mary. Therefore God did make a son via the holy spirit hence Jesus was born. Nobody doubts that the fairytales of the Bible probably include real people and places just like any story teller the people who made up the Bible probably used some of their or their ancestors history. Jesus could have been a real person just not a God.

            Your whole description as God coming down as Jesus would not explain his conversations with himself was he nuts? Do you really think God had verbal conversations with Jesus and he is both of them. You speak in circles just like the nonsense in the Bible does.

          • stockmarketpig

            you try to make the Bible say things it doesnt and you mis represent what i say. God did not make himself a son via the Holy Spirit. God is not made. the ‘Son’ is Jesus. Jesus is God Almighty. Therefore, no one made him. He, being God voluntarily left heaven to come to earth to live a full human life (while still being God). The life he lived was perfect and sinless so that when he was sacrificed (voluntarily) it would mean something…the truly innocent would be sacrificed for the truly guilty. the guilty (all of us) could have their guilt and shame removed permanently by being covered by the blood shed of the innocent one.

            Jesus never had conversations with himself so no he was not nuts. Where you got that i'll never know. The Father is a person and is God, the son (Jesus) is a person and is God, the Spirit is a person and is God. Three distinct persons…One God. Jesus can pray to the Father, The Spirit can intercede for mankind, The Father can speak and interact with the Son. All three are the One true God yet three distinct persons. When one is here on earth (as Jesus was) it doesnt mean that no one was in heaven. God is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent and is represented in three distinct persons, The Father , Son and Holy Spirit. Those three form the triune God.
            So in repsonse to your question, –Do you really think God had verbal conversations with Jesus and he is both of them? No, that is a heresy known as modelism. The error that The Father is Jesus or the father is the Spirit. The Father is the father and is God, The Son is the Son and is equally God and the Spirit is the Spirit and is equally God. All three distinct persons and all equally God. You dont have to believe it or accept it, you simply must submit to it when you stand before him on judgement day and then fully realize what you have rejected and mocked.

            Dont make the fatal flaw of human arrogance. the notion that, “if i dont understand it it cant be understood”. You had a beginning and you will have an end (in this life) but we are eternal beings made to live forever. Death only came to mankind because of sin (For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23).. Adam and Eve would still be her today had they not sinned. God is eternal and has no beginning or end. he put you here and all you know is beginning/end. Dont be fooled into thinking God operates on the same level as you. He is outside of time and space, the laws of gravity , physics etc are for us not him. If he created the laws then he is outside of them. when you breath your last breath you too will be outside of those restrictions and living somewhere. you better choose wisely while you are here. God made a way for everyone to be with him but loves you enough to let you choose to reject him. unfortunately hell is the only other alternative. It was only created for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41). sadly, many will choose that rather than choose God's free gift. It is not open for discussion. he makes the rules , he paid the price he gets the last word. Where will you be? Choose wisely.

          • bigwood

            also what about John 12:27 “27 “Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify Your name.”

            Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.”

            When Jesus refers to god as father. Is jesus just talking to himself like a mad man.

          • bigwood

            clearly three separate entities not three beings ground into a holy sausage. Exactly when has the Bible been proven correct by the way?? And if what you say is God is perfect and only needs perfection around him why would he not make people perfect. Because it is nonsense

            Christians use the term proof very loosely. There is no physical proof that Jesus even existed and even if he did exist is any more than a man. All the proof for Jesus falls into a book of made up nonsense

            I find that people who spend so much energy hating homosexuals are usually themselves gay.

          • stockmarketpig

            who said anything about hating homosexuals, i'm simply telling the truth about a disgusting lifestyle. I work with plenty of homosexuals and have never treated them differently but I wont allow that sick lifestyle be elevated and falsely propped up. Why else would I care so much about what complete strangers do at home you say? They dont do it at home. they come out of their homes and push to legislate their agenda and force everyone to accept it. they have to force their worldview on everyone and demand that everyone accept them as normal. they legislate to become a protected class of people. What a sick thought. A person demands that they get extra rights and privileges just for being gay.. if you are born in America you automatically have the same rights as anyone else in America. What would cause a person to believe that they deserve extra rights based on the perverted way they have sex? How do you get protected class status for that? You say i am a troubled person? how? being ,arried to teh same person for 27 years, owning all of my vehicle outright, owning my home, working since i was 16, raising 6 kids, practically no debt? tell me about your stellar life. I'll tell you what troubles me. The fanatical, hysterical, unAmerican, unpatriotic, death obsessed, anti-life, anti-gun, anti-freedom, anti-family, anti-military, anti-freedom, election fraud, lazy, whining, freeloading, easily lead and mislead racist liberal democrats who try to define every term and cant articulate with reason or objectivity any of their rotten agenda but are completely intolerant of anyone who wont agree with them all the while screaming that they are the most tolerant. As soon as a filthy democrat utters the words ‘transparent’ you know whats coming…the most closed off, deviant, sealed, dark, hidden, scheming, lying agenda on the planet. you have had your mind taken from you and you dont even know it. sad

          • Chris

            How does wanting to be kind and fair equal treason? How does caring for the poor, sick or weak equal treason? Maybe you don't actually know the definition of treason. Treason is a Congress that has been the least productive Congress in US history, it is a group of people who collect their pay checks from American taxes and spends their time holding 42 votes to repeal a law that the Supreme Court upheld, or those same people shutting down the government and costing American taxpayers $24 billion to throw a tantrum about a law that the Supreme Court upheld. Treason is starting a war based on lies so your friends can get filthy rich (Halliburton, KBR) while Americans die and America goes bankrupt. Should I go on, or are you getting an idea of what treason actually means?

          • stockmarketpig

            Hey everyone, the filthy left is here. Chirping away at the talking points they all tally around because they don't have any real argument of their own. Wah. Wah war is bad (unless our foreign born, socialist president starts one against lybia or the rapist – impeached bill Clinton bombs an aspirin factory to move attention off of the fact that he is a rapist and easily lead the sheep that worship the left on to another distraction. Feeding the poor and hungry? Caring for the sick? That what you think the filthy left does? That's what they TELL you they are doing and you aren't supposed to question them. If you were smart and you obviously are not you would know that everything a leftist dies is aimed at destroying the U.S. economy and American society to implement socialism. The democrat party only schemes and plots the destruction of the U.S. they cheat in every election, flood our country with illegals then demand they pay foe them, force working people (conservatives) to pay for the filth (democrats) who refuse to work. Who do you think commits all the crime in the U.S.? Leftists! Democrats! Who else. Conservatives are busy working and paying all the bills while the drunk, high, dirty foot liberals stand around demanding a hand out. The filthy treasonous left. You truly are duped. Liberalism is treason.

            Totally agree. They need to stop taking his comments out of context. His opinion about black people was based on his personal experience and his views on gays is biblical…not a phobia. I don't agree with gay rights, however, my gay family members and friend know my opinion but I love them anyway.
            By the way…I'm biracial.

          • steve

            Thanks Fatina, it's good to know there are still people out there with common sense.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            The comments were not bigoted. Just describing what is written in the Bible.

            Oh wait, you are probably one of gullible atheist types who swallow the morality of humanism because professional liars in the media led to buy their scientific joke of an explanation for life.

          • JackMist

            Humanism: A concern with the interests, needs, and welfare of humans. The HORROR!!! How could anyone ever think such a thing!!! It's an Abomination!

            As for Science, if God exists than science is the study of his thoughts put into action. Science is not the enemy of God. You, I'm not so sure of.

          • Kat

            Nothing bigoted about quoting the scriptures, and quite precisely I might add. If Phil is bigoted then I guess God is to blame. Ironic how when a man dares speak the truth and it hits a nerve, i.e., the gays know they are wrong..then the defecation hits the oscillator.

          • Angela Moran

            so if a god loving man quoting the bible is a bigot so are all the worlds religious leaders. should we close all the churches

          • bigwood

            If only we could the world would be a better place

          • Edward

            How many churches help out people in need, and start/fund hospitals? Where do people turn in times of crisis?
            Remember 9/11?
            I understand many who call themselves Christians are not living as they should, eating their young, so-to-speak.
            However, we have Americans’ killing each other like the Unabomber, Timothy McVeigh, Newtown, etc, etc I could go on- but you don't think all American's are the same as them, right?
            Why tar all “religious” people the same as those who don't live up to the ideal?

          • bigwood

            Because all religions main goal is to weed out everything their made up God deems as evil or sin so the true believers get to the promised land. Most Christians I meet don't think we should have a live and let live policy and if they could make American laws to mimic the Bible they would in a heartbeat. That is why America is better off than the middle eastern countries who have religion and their government as the same thing.

          • greg miles

            you are stupid,did you finish any high school?

          • bigwood

            Did you finish college to get that highly articulate comment out.
            Duh you are stupid. Fucking knuckle dragging Christians are so painful to talk too. Duh you are stupid too. Go back and finish fucking your mother and don't come back till you save up for a whole sentence.

          • OneTrueDemon

            You stated:
            “Most Christians I meet don't think we should have a live and let live policy and if they could make American laws to mimic the Bible they would in a heartbeat.”

            However, based on your condemnation of specific groups it's unfortunate your actions would be treasonous by biblical law

            -thou shall not judge lest yw be judged

            -god loves all his children equally

            -god believes in forgiveness and is a god of mercy.

            These are all aspects that your fellow Christians would have you hanged… Or more appropriately, Crucified for.

          • bigwood

            That is my whole point why you would never make laws that mimic the Bible because it is too ridiculous. I am not judging them just stating a fact that if allowed Christians would use the Bible to write laws in this country. Do you really doubt that premise

          • buzzardbill

            I recall George Carlin's reduction of the 10 commandments to 2: Thou shalt try real hard not to kill anyone unless, of course, they pray to a different invisible avenger than the one you pray to and secondly, thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself. I think it fits here.

          • bigwood

            I don't have a religion to keep to myself

          • buzzardbill

            True, some are. Remember Pat Robertson blaming 9/11 on gay men and women. Even he recognized his bigotry had gone beyond the pale and retracted his words. And Falwell concurred with the original statement.

          • Phelt Saucier

            He sure can. And everyone who reacts are grown ass adults and can call him out on his bigotry and bullshit. And A&E is a grown ass corporation who can fire someone who sullies their brand. And I'm sure you're a grown ass adult who will just get over it. Freedom of speech in a capitalist society works again.

          • Joe Cristarella

            And Phil is a grown ass man and he can believe the way he wants and say what he wants. Above all, he never said anything disparaging about homosexuals, he said they were sinners in the eyes of his religious beliefs, and according to the bible they are, but he also said promiscuity is a sin too.

          • Phelt Saucier

            And everyone who calls him out on his religious bullshit are grown ass adults who, evidently, have a clearer sense of logic and are allowed to say that he's a bigot. And A&E is a grown ass corporation who can fire him for giving their company a bad name. It's called Freedom of speech. And it's working loud and clear.

          • stockmarketpig

            yes it is working, A&E shows what a bunch of pansies they are. facebook littered with pro phil robertson appreciation for telling the truth. GLAAD bombarded with calls and emails from true Americans who support the thinking of phil robertson. when you've been gropping in the dark for so long the light makes your eyes hurt. A&E are cowards who cant handle the truth. Sully their brand? that's rich! they are filthy, unpatriotic, hysterical liberals…you cant get anymore sullied than that! liberalism is treason.

            So cable isn't television? Wow!

          • Phelt Saucier

            It's not NETWORK. Jesus. Figure it out. NBC, ABC, CBS — those are Network TV stations. Cable can show whatever they want.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            You are picking nits to win an argument started by yourself that was pointless to begin with. Plus one could reasonably argue that cable stations ARE network soon as they extend beyond one city, which is the underlying definition of the network model anyway.

            Plus given that ABC, NBC and CBS (the original networks) are loaded down each night with at least verbal pornography, I would submit that very little difference other than a few cuss words and more visual porno stands between the two anyway.

            Regardless, the only reason I can see for your participation in this conversation from the beginning is to disrupt the flow of intelligent discourse.

          • Phelt Saucier

            Fair enough. But not why I was in it.

          • bigwood

            of course there are cable networks but they don't come over the public airwaves and you have to pay to get them which is why they are not regulated by the FCC. Contrary your dumbass views the word network is not what decides what is regulated. ONLY PUBLIC AIRWAVES ARE REGULATED. You can get porn through Time Warner Cable. you can get porn through the satelite but the FCC only controls networks available through Public Airwaves which you can also get through cable and satellite. So the magic box you have that runs your tv brings in both regulated and non FCC regulated programming. If you don't want to see Miley shake her ass don't subscribe

          • Jim Evans

            CBS, ABC, NBS, MSNBC, FOX, A & E, History Channel, Everything on TV is a NETWORK, for people who don't have common sense.

          • http://meetchristians.com/ randalusa

            Be careful what you label as common sense. For example, your argument isn't against me, but with Phelt. Beyond that little tidbit, he is merely attempting to distract people from the discussion anyway. Nobody here needs to bother debating what is or is not a network, as it had nothing to do with the original premise.

          • Jim Evans

            I am not worried about Phelt and as far as common sense, he or it or whatever doesn't have any. Some people get on here just to make trouble and they are just one of them.

          • Jim Evans

            Phelt Saucier—How stupid are you. Every ” Network ” now is either on ” Cable ” or a ” Satellite ” company. The FCC controls the Cable TV Companies & Satellite Companies. I guess not that many people complained about Miley, but the asshole religious fanatics and GLAAD are the ones who put the pressure on A & E network to have Phil Robertson banned. I guess they thought it was OK for Miley though. NBC, ABC, & CBS are on ” Cable TV, and they are called ” Network Stations ” You need some lessons on being smart..

          • bigwood

            For all you dumbasses that don't understand the difference between network and “cable” the FCC only regulates information coming over the public airwaves (that can be accessed free with bunny ears or a radio). They do not regulate cable or satellite radio or tv. This is why you rednecks with satellites can get porn where a girl pretends she is screwing her daddy except you get to live it out in real life. The difference is you pay for “cable” or satellite so you can choose to buy or choose not to but this not mean we need it regulated to meet your puritan standards don't fucking buy buy it dumbass.

        You are picking at nits. The control freak liberal thought police demand conformity or be fired. Some even find their entire lives and character smeared on national TV for weeks, months.

        THAT is the comparison, not whether some individuals mentioned that Miley was behaving like a whore. She was of course being a whore, either for acting money or as a reflection of her promiscuity. Doing so is obviously okay with the atheist elite, the professional liars who control the major news and entertainment operations in the land.

        Lest any wonder, I am speaking about ABC, NBC, NPR and CBS (plus bunches of smaller entities beginning with the NY Times, MTV, Comedy Central, Washington Post and so on).

      Hey where is Mr. Sharpton's big mouth? You want to talk about being mistreated? Ask yourself this Mr. Sharpton, what if our president had been white and 4 black men were BURNED TO DEATH (Benghazi, I know you have no clue what I am talking about, the rug is only big enough to keep sweeping it under and no, you will not get a funeral as Mandela, he actually somehthing good or maybe your respective president will do a selfie with you but then again you have never been invited to the White house for dinner, think he is disgusted and tired of you too) because he wanted to be a back up dancer for Beyonce, what would you say to that? Nothing because you are a loud mouth hyprocrite, so before you open that pie hole we all wish you would lose, think about that. I could care less of Obama's color (as you notice I did not say president because he isn't) where were you then? Pig and biggomist.

      Who cares about her. Its simple Phil don't believe in gays! Cool I don't like them either. I believe its wrong just as wrong as murder sexual assault or child abuse. That's my belief and my right as an American to state what I believe. did I just hurt somebody no! will somebody think I'm an ASS for my beliefs sure. That's there right and they can tell me that, Do I Really Give A $hit NO!! this is what Phil did nothing wrong with that. Was he suspended for stating his God Given Right to free Speech under our Constitution. He again never singled out one person or group and persecuted them. He just stated his opinion. My opinion is that gays as a group make to big of deal out of things. And another thing. why should I have to change for them. Like example Gay meaning happy. Fag a cigarette. Queer means strange. Or that's so gay meaning dumb or stupid or strange. Why would a people take words that mean completely something other then what they are. Have a clue make up new words. I'm not changing for any one group I have rights too! I will use them and since served this great country I believe I have the right to state my opinion also Did Phil do anything wrong just whiners make it difficult for true believers and last! This country was founded on a Christian believe deal with it quit trying to change things, If you don't like it use your greats God given freedom LEAVE!!!!!! . My GOD GIVEN RIGHT AS A FREE AMERICAN.

      • alyx227

        A&E stated today they did NOT suspend him for his views on religion as their network just aired “The Bible”, he was suspended for a comment that A&E considered crossed the line, and it was when he compared Gay and Lesbians to bestiality. That is why he was suspended.

        • jonathan larche

          He did not compare gays and lesbians to bestiality. He only included homosexuality in a list of sins with bestiality, along with promiscuity, and made a reference to the Biblical condemnation of each. In that, he was in concert with the Bible.

          • Bailey

            jonathan, are you married? did you have premarital sex? if so, you sinned…

            And? What is your point?

          • Bailey

            well, why isn't phil raging against the rest of the sinners? why is it that so many “Christians” are so homophobic, hypocritical, racist, and arrogant? I cannot believe you missed the point.. LOL if you are going to quote scripture and point out the ridiculous prohibitions that phil was ranting about, why aren't you ranting and raving about the rest?

          • nlebou

            First, he doesn't “rage” about anything. You are the only one ranting and raving. Christians are not homophobic. I know no one who is afraid of homosexuals. You do know what that word means don't you? A phobia is a fear. And to answer your other rant….he does preach against all sin.

          • Bailey

            well.. there you go.. another person who cannot base their argument in reality.. lol

          • nlebou

            What is not realistic? He does preach against all sin.

          • killerbrew

            This would be the same thing that pastors preach to the congregation. There isn't anyone who watches porn that gets upset when a pastor preaches about that sin, or about greed, or about murder. These groups of people don't get offended by Christians beliefs, why should anyone? Just because it is believed by Christians to be a sin doesn't mean that we don't or haven't done them. It's still wrong no questions about it. As a matter of fact, those who were former murderers and watchers of porn or in bondage to greed are accepted with open arms once accepting to Christ.

            I don't expect you to change your mind. Just explaining. Thank you.

          • killerbrew

            We've ALL sinned, YES. I don't deny that and admit it freely. That is why Jesus was born and killed on a cross, so that our sins were paid for. Being a Christian doesn't make a person any better than another person. I think that is where many people make the assumption (even some Christians).

            2) How his he hypocritical? is he in a gay relationship while speaking out against it?

            3) How was anything he said against gays as racist?

            4) Arrogant? Do you know what that means? (overbearingly assuming (that is one definition)) that is what you did when you make that comment.

          • judo

            everyone sins, everyone has darkness. Most christians will admit that, its others that act like christians are holier than others because they believe and go to church. In actuality most christians go to church to further their education in something they believe in, to try to fight the urges to sin, and know that they arent perfect by any means.

          • bigwood

            His quote:”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,” implies that the next natural step after Homosexuality is Beastiality and then to promiscuity is what they are talking about. Hence the word Morph

            It certainly does not imply such a thing at all. That is the straight line which you drew, not Phil. The relationship – hence the “morphing” – was not that one was the other. The relationship is both are considered “sins” in the Biblical interpretation, just as robbery and murder are both crimes, though not equal.

        • Lynda

          BS

      • Graceann Harbach

        it has nothing to do with religion you moron. when he stated that gays are murderers and drunks, then equated them to terrorists, that is what got him suspended. as usual the religious nuts heard and read what they wanted not what was actually there. I don't care about his personal beliefs, but when he starts bashing a group of people because they choose a different lifestyle that is wrong. I think the show should be canceled. I am sick of this country having to say and do things in a way to keep the religious nuts happy. as far as I am concerned keep your spiritual views to yourself, not on billboards or in the public schools and definitely not in our government.

        • killerbrew

          in the bible a sin is a sin. Whether that sin be murder or theft. There is no difference in God's eyes and that was the comparison that Phil was making. I agree with him completely. Do I hate homosexuals? NO. I have good friends that are homosexual. Do I have to agree with their actions? Absolutely not. Do they have to agree with my beliefs. NO.
          Take a different look other than assuming someone means hate when they don't agree with something or someone.

          • gilbi

            If “a sin is a sin” then how come you all think it is fine that “Adam” screwed his daughters and “Eve” screwed her sons. You are in denial that your “holy book” is flawed right from the start.

          • Mine

            Please tell me where you read that Adam and Eve had sex with their kids. Their kids had relations to help populate the world, that was Gods will, as time went on he let them know that it wasn't acceptable any longer as they now had enough people to not lay with immediate family members.

          • Lynda

            No, they did not. Other people existed and the
            Bible acknowledges that. There were also fallen angels in the mix who
            had relations with the “daughters of men.”

          • Bailey

            I love the God's will argument

          • bigwood

            I love the God's will argument. I guess your God needs child rapist, murderers, war it is all God's will including people being gay so he must like that too

          • Jim Evans

            So your saying that it was ” Incest ” and it was God's will ? I guess God was a pervert after all. But the truth be told, ” God ” is a figment of people's imagination, that you are made to believe ever since you was a kid and it was brainwashed into your mind. Religion wants people to believe that a non existing being made the heavens and earth is 6 days and rested on the seventh. How stupid is that and it is pure fiction. It has been proven to be very wrong.

          • Old Believer

            So Jim, non existing being made the heavens and earth is 6 days, not so much, but a pre-existing being without beginning or end did. Made out of nothing life. Biogenesis cannot do it even today, create out of nothing. Time space randomness and chaos, this is what you believe created a universe in perfect harmony? How much faith does that require? “Stupid is as stupid does “; I believe is the quote. Time will tell.

          • Jim Evans

            Your funny.

          • bigwood

            Whether you believe in God or Science you have to believe something has come from nothing or that something has always been

          • Lynda

            No matter what you think or believe… God gets the last word.

          • Jim Evans

            Whatever you think. lol.

          • Lynda

            Not what I think… what God wills. God is all powerful, dude. I can't wait to meet Him! You will fall on your knees before Him. Every knee will bow. Better get used to the idea… because you did not create the universe! Praying for you! :)

          • Jim Evans

            Lol. I don;t get on my knees for anyone, but i guess you do, and i don't think you will be praying when you do. Lol. Religious fanatics.

          • Lynda

            LOL You WILL either bow TO GOD… or FOR demons. You choose your own fate. Jesus loves your crude, nasty little self!

          • bigwood

            totem pole, little wooden boy where do you come up with this trash talk? I said I am pulling for you to meet him soon. I am on your side. Please heavenly father take this ignorant bitch as soon as possible

          • Proven wrong? When? By whom?

          • Jim Evans

            It has been proven by Scientist & Astronomers ” that this earth and planets was because of the “Big Bang “. There is no way an imaginary being ” god ” could do something like that. It is a fairy tale . Religion is nothing more than a brainwashing tool conceived by some complete moron to make people believe his thoughts. Evolution is something you religious fanatics need to read about and get you head out of your ass and quit reading that fairy tale book called the bible. Good Day.

          • LOL, what nonsense. Scientists and astronomers haven't proven any of that, and there is no such thing as evolution.

          • Jim Evans

            I guess you also failed your science class as you have no idea what you are talking about. i guess you know nothing about what a ” amoeba ” or a ” paramecium ” The i guess you can't even explain why we have a tail bone. People like you are so stupid and ignorant, that all you believe in is what your stupid bible says. People also like you disgust me as you know nothing. I thing you should look at the way the human ” Evolved ” from the caveman forward. I guess you don't even have the intelligence to look at the resemblance between Gorillas, Baboons, Monkeys, and Chimpanzees, and human beings. You need to get rid of your ignorance and take some smart classes as you really need it. Have a good day. P.S.. Are you scared to use your real name ? I use mine. Oh, i get it, you don't want people to know how stupid and ignorant you really are.

          • Guest

            There were never ‘cave men', and there is no such thing as evolution. Not only is there no evidence for it but there is plenty of evidence that proves evolution is impossible. It doesn't happen because it can't happen, and science has proven this. Your temper tantrums change nothing.

          • bigwood

            what is the evidence that evolution can't happen I missed that one?

          • bigwood

            Your God knows you are definitely proof that nothing evolves. I'll bet you are as dumb as the dumbest cave man but I guess you don't believe in cave men and dinosaurs either

          • Jim Evans

            No need to reply to my comment.

          • biblelove

            What about Lot's daughters sleeping with him then? Or, more importantly, Sarah being Abraham's half-sister?

          • killerbrew

            And gilbi I do not hate you for your beliefs either. You are not forced to believe what I believe. I do encourage you to actually read what you are debating against as everyone should be educated about both sides of a debate. Merry Christmas.

          • Jim Evans

            I believe in ” Evolution ” and ” The Big Bang Theory ” which has been proven by several scientist. You believe in your mythical creatures called god and jesus and i will believe mine. Now you can go read your fairy tale bible.

          • Erm, no. Neither of those fantasies have ever been proven by anyone. Indeed, they've been proven false. At least try to keep up, eh?

          • Lynda

            gilbi, where in the world did you get the idea that Adam and Eve had sexual relations with their own offspring? Other people existed and the Bible acknowledges that. There were also fallen angels in the mix who had relations with the “daughters of men.”

          • Creed3712

            Gilbi, I have read the bible multiple times and no where does it say that Adam has sex with his daughters and Eve with her sons. If you see from the movies or A&E or Discover series about the bible, they are so far off on so may things its like they just read a spot here and there and filled in the blanks with their imaginations trying to lower the bible to their low life standards

          • Jim Evans

            Religion is the root of ” EVIL ” Most wars are fought over religion as we are fighting a war know over religion. Radical Muslims fighting and killing other Muslims and Christians etc. The ” Holy Book ” is not as holy as people think it is and it is very close to pornography as you can get.

          • Ericzipp

            Yet according to a University of Hawaii study the top three murderers in the 20th century where humanist atheist. Nearly a hundred million murdered by people who believed there was no god.

          • Jim Evans

            You prove to me there is a god and i will recant my statement. Of course you can't. So what was the top three murders in the 20th Century. Also just because they are saying this doesn't mean i have to believe it or that it is true. Silly people.

          • Ericzipp

            What difference does it make? Your mind is made up and closed up. Of course I can not prove to you there is a God. Though I see many things that show to me that God is if I told you you would not hear it and if I showed you you would not see it.
            It has nothing to do with what I stated any how. I just pointed out that it does not fact it doesn't take of Christian or Muslim or any other beliefs to make war or murder. Men are evil and do evil things. Man has thru history used religion as a tool to justify their evil. To answer your question though any religion invented by man is by nature evil because man is evil, even the statist religion of socialist humanistic communism.

          • Jim Evans

            It makes a lot of difference. Of course you can't prove to me there is a god. God is a figment of peoples imagination. See the thing is, I use to go to church until i found out just how those people was nothing more than a bunch of hypocrites. They would go party on Friday & Saturday nights, drink beer and raise hell, then on Sunday go to church and ask forgiveness, Week end and week out they would do this, and i bet you are one of them. Good Day.

          • Ericzipp

            Hypocrites? What is it called when someone blames their own shortcomings on the actions of other people? Do you think God will listen to your argument that church people did things you didn't like so you rejected Him. Is it God's fault those people drank beer, raised hell, and all the other things you do not like.

          • Jim Evans

            You are fighting a losing battle, so all the comments you are making, you might as well just keep them to yourself, and quit replying and wearing out your fingertips. I believe my way and you can believe yours. Have a nice day. Merry Xmas.

            We can keep it up as long as you can! LOL What is a few hours on the internet compared to eternity?

            Heaven is the ULTIMATE “I told you so!” Merry Christmas!

          • RAJ

            We are all broken, selfish, sinful people, church is a hospital for sinners not a museum of saints. The forgiveness of sins paid by the blood of Christ is not a license to sin, although many “Christians” today treat it as such. Furthermore it just proves the point of what I said earlier that we are all broken and selfish. Going to church makes you no more of a Christian than it does a monkey. Devoting your life to living the way Christ intended us to does.

          • Jim Evans

            And just how did your mythical creature tell us how to live ? Your reply should be very interesting. A person who allegedly rose back from the grave and could walk on water. It sure sounds like a fairy tale to me.,

            HE also healed the sick ,arose the die,restored the sight to the blind,healed the lame,feed 5000 men not counting women and childen with a five fish and two loaves of bread,lived a perfect mistakeless,sinless life,took the sins of the world on his shoulders and die just to rise again .

I bet you $ 1000.00 that i am more of a man than you will ever be, or maybe your a woman, because i really don't know since you don't have the balls to use your real name. I bet i am old enough to be your father or maybe even your grandfather. By the way where are you from as i am from New York. Come visit sometime.

          • Lynda

            AMEN Allen!

          • allen

            If I may ask a question… if someone that you love very much was dying and you could not help them what do you do?.If that person were to pass, do you not hope that person is in a better place?. Its realtionship between your creator and you not religion. Just asking,hope u do not take this the wrong way have a Wonderful Day thanks

          • Jim Evans

            I will answer this question this way. I do not believe in Heaven, and as far as i am concerned, we are living in hell now. So if a very close friend or relative passes away, they will be in a better place. They will be somewhere, but not in hell as on this earth.

          • allen

            What do you call that place? Is it hard to believe that God come to earth to die for every sin that you or I would ever make and forgive us just because we put all our faith in HIM.

          • Jim Evans

            It's called ” The Ground ” inside a casket. I don't put my faith in him. I will tell you how stupid religious people are. This has happened several times. Parents would believe that your god { mythical creature } would heal their sick child and they would refuse to take the kid or whomever to the hospital. In turn the person would die leaving the ” Religious ” person in jail. Religion is nothing more than brain washing from the time a person was a child into adult life unless they realized that it was a phoney crap. I don't know why you are wasting your time trying to convince me into your believes. It won't work. Have a nice day:

            I'm not “afraid” of prayer (chanting). I realize that it's complete BS.

          • Lynda

            Only Catholics chant. I pray like this:

            Heavenly Father, show your power and love to this, your child, whom you love. In Jesus’ name…. AMEN!

          • Jim Evans

            I don't feel threatened at all. I just hate someone trying to push their stupid religious views on me. I don't try to convert you to the devil, so why do you do it to me ? Really makes sense doesn't it ?

          • bigwood

            Technically Atheist don't believe in the devil either

          • Jim Evans

            Well, thank you very much.

            That is a complete lie and bullshit. Do you really expect us to believe you will remember Jim Evans from the internet and pray for him the rest of your life every day. But that is as believable as the Bible

            From the wicked the light is withheld, and the arm of pride is shattered. Do not give to dogs what is holy, nor cast not your pearls before swine. He has blinded your eyes and hardened your hearts lest you understand and convert and be healed. You get nothing.

            By the way, the worst 30 serial killers of the 20th century were homosexuals. Snuggle up in your onesie and cry about it.

          • Jim Evans

            Oh My Fucking God. short form OMFG What in the hell is wrong with you.? If you think you are going to convert me. you better think twice. I do not follow your bull shit lines, i do not believe in your bull shit religion and the problem is your trying to push your bullshit religion on me and it will not work. I don't try to push my beliefs on you and you should respect that. I do not respect you trying to push you bull shit fairy tale religion on me. And by the way, are you comparing me to a homosexual just because i don't believe in religion ? By the way i also have the numbers 666 in my E-mail address. Follow The Buzzards, and fuck off.

          • There's nothing wrong with me. Can't you read, boy?
            Nobody wants to convert you, nobody wants you at all.

            There you go with that ” Boy ” thing again. It makes me wonder about you. A little twerp. LOL. I guess you don't know to much then do you. Try using your real name little girl.

          • Ericzipp

            Dude you really get into this. You seem more anti Christian than atheist. What up with the deep hatred? No one is calling you names. Why is it your replies are filled with hate to someone who disagrees with you. I know quite a few atheist who would look down on you for your hate speech. Yes, you have the right to say what you want but do you really want to say this crap. It really is a poor reflection of who you are.

          • Jim Evans

            I do what i want, when i want and if i want to get into this , i will. The problem with this country is that the people are becoming or should i say a bunch of pussies. Does every fucking thing have to be politically correct ? Fuck no it doesn't. People also don't have the balls to say, enough is enough. I have the balls to speak my mind and if people don't like it, i could care fucking less. The same goes with you or anyone reading this. If you think i am full of hate, then i guess you can blame my military service on it and being treated like shit by other people and our so called government.

          • Bailey

            and over 100,000,000 in this land slaughtered in the name of god.

          • bigwood

            I always love the rewritten history of things. Hitler was Catholic, He was raised Catholic, baptized Catholic and never renounced being Catholic or religious. He was quoted even as late as 1941 saying he was Catholic and always would be. After his Death people try to make him an Atheists by his actions but he was Christian and if you can be called non christian because you sin than nobody is a Christian. Just like everyone states on this post whether you are gay or you slaughter millions a sin is a sin (they are equal)

          • Ericzipp

            Ummm… Did I miss something? It was a couple days ago but I don't recall mentioning Hitler. Do yourself a favor and google democide University of Hawaii. Also might I suggest you work on your reading comprehension before you reply. Come on read and understand the whole text first. I might mostly agree with you but the way you present yourself makes you look stupid and leads to unnecessary conflict.

          • bigwood

            The study focused on Russia, China and Nazi Germany which was my whole point about Hitler. Hitler was catholic therefore the three largest were not atheist. If you go back further how many tens of millions were killed by the largely religious European colonization of the Americas. The premise of the whole study is not even about religion or atheist but how murder by government is more likely to happen under totalitarian rule rather than democracy. I think modern atheist are way less likely to start wars because they believe their religion (or lack thereof) is better than another. That is why Christians (AKA right wing of republican party)today are so ok with fighting Muslim countries whether they have attacked us or not because they view all muslims as heathen terrorist that are out to get them. It is also how funny to listen to them want to defend the Jews at all cost which is stemmed from the Bible of them being the chosen people (But ironically by the way they are all going to hell because they don't believe in Jesus)
            And fuck you and your unnecessary conflict and I have never given a shit what anybody who still believes in Jewish fairy tales thinks of me. So go read your Bible and then explain to me why you are not an idiot for believing any of the Bible is real especially the old testament

          • Wrong again. Most wars are fought for territory, not religion. Your history teacher would be ashamed of you.

          • Jim Evans

            I guess you had the wrong history teacher. Most wars ” ARE ” fought over religion. Look around the world right now. Radical Muslims killing other Muslims, Christians if they really exist and Catholics. I just wonder where you got your information. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are being fought over religion as well as Syria and in Africa. Get a grip on real things not what you believe.

          • You've been told, and you won't be told again. Suffer in ignorance, it's your lot in life.

          • Jim Evans

            I truly believe , correction, you are a very ignorant person to believe all of this religious bullshit. If you believe in the bible, god or jesus, then that makes you very ignorant.

          • Bailey

            in the bible, tattoos are forbidden, people who commit adultery should be stoned to death… why aren't people who are screaming about people being gay, which by the way, is NO ONE's business, not practicing those prohibitions?

          • killerbrew

            And I encourage you verify the differences between the old testament and the new testament.

          • Lynda

            Old testament beliefs were laid aside and new commandments were given to us by the Son of God. And BTW… I hear a lot more screaming AT Christians than BY Christians.

          • Creed3712

            The basics are still in place (murder, theft, adultery, homosexuality, etc…) and Jesus affirmed most of them but what was laid aside was the mosaic laws.

          • Jim Evans

            Jesus is a Zombie.

          • bigwood

            Jesus affirmed homosexuality, adultery and theft. who knew Jesus was a Player

          • Creed3712

            What? You are confused, Jesus is not a player, do you know what affirmed means? It is not the same as approved, it means “maintain as true” as one of its definitions. He maintain that what the bible said is true that murder, theft, adultery, homosexuality, etc… is not good and repeating that it is wrong. Need to read the bible, just hearing bits and pieces is not giving you the whole picture.

          • Alaea

            You obviously weren't one of the people who had things thrown at them or had people screaming “LEVITICUS. LEVITICUS!” at you while walked down the street. You obviously didn't get beaten up by people screaming HELL in your face and then thrown down and disregarded as trash. You don't have to go to one of your favorite forums or videos about your lifestyle just for it to be ruined by hurtful comments from people who've deliberately gone out of the way to JUDGE something they don't know a thing about. If there had never been harm there wouldn't be harm.

          • Lynda

            Alaea, I've been there. I grew up with abuse. I belonged to a cult. I was beaten up a lot. By my father and then by my first husband. Not to mention the spiritual abuse of the cult. You have no idea of what I went through. None of that was God's doing. What God did do was lead me out and show me the path. Jesus healed me and He can do the same for you.

          • bigwood

            It sounds more like the rabid abuse of you made you dumb enough to believe religion.

            and I bet you have a whole lot of actions they don't agree with… how does marriage equality hurt you? Not all of us are Christian.. don't push your beliefs on the rest of us…

          • killerbrew

            I'm sorry if you feel that anyone is pushing beliefs on you Bailey. But is it wrong for a Christian to speak their beliefs? Whether something “hurts” me or not doesn't change if I believe it is right or wrong. It is no different that you telling me it is all right for it to be done. At that point you by your own standards you are pushing your beliefs on me. Yet I do not take offense. You are welcome to your beliefs.

          • Bailey

            Lol.. okay

          • Bailey

            well, i am pretty sure I did not list being christian in the same category as pedophilia, “happy” oppressed people (My God, how incredibly stupid and ignorant is that???), bestiality, or any of the other nasty and ridiculous comments of phil….

        • undardawg

          It has been argued that one of the reasons for the existence of religion is that it's an effective means for society's powerful to control everyone else. Whether that's a reason why religion exists is debatable, but it's certainly true that control is one of the uses of religion – and that seems to be increasing.

           

          While freedom of religion and speech is protected in the United States, a social and political climate prevails “in which atheists and the non-religious are made to feel like lesser Americans, or non-Americans.”

          In at least seven U.S. states, constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and one state, Arkansas, has a law that bars an atheist from testifying as a witness at a trial.

          It's amazing how conservative Christians claim to be the persecuted ones in modern society even as they are fighting to control others’ lives. They are the only group I know of who can define “persecution” as “not being allowed to dominate everything and everyone” with a straight face.

           

          Christianity, for one, openly advocates for unquestioning obedience to those in authority.

           

          Romans 13:1-2 says:

          Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

           

           

          “I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it.”

          Billy Graham – 1981.

          “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

          — Gandhi

           

          “With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”- Steven Weinberg

          • Lynda

            The world… and YOU exist because of God. And it IS Christians who are being persecuted… AGAIN!

          • Bailey

            I dont believe that…

          • Lynda

            That's your problem. Your lack of faith does not alter the reality of the universe.

          • Bailey

            Lynda, please, educate me.. show me SCIENTIFIC verifiable data that proves your point……lol.. always the very ready lack of faith and god's will.. sure keeps you from having to think critically

        • Chilly in Orlando

          You are putting words in his mouth! He made no personal about gays murdering people. You should keep your inflammatory attitude in the closet

          • Bailey

            so he supported the reality of racism and homophobia as attitudes that have led to murder, eg. lynchings? and he was very educated about his comments.. and he was very clear that he was open, accepting, and loving, as was Christ.. okay.. I missed that in his ugly and stupid comments

          • Enough is Enough

            Gee, Bailey, I hope you keep posting your thoughts. I have not read any other good comedies lately.

        • NEL

          He did not say gays were any of those things you said. He didn't bash anyone. Reading comprehension a problem for you?

          • Lynda

            RIght… Baily cannot comprehend.

          • Bailey

            all God's will, right Lynda.. oh… I understand very well the arrogance of “christians” against people of color, women, the GLBT community, in fact just about everyone but white males like Phil.. not hard to grasp at all.. but.. yeah.. its all gods will

          • Bailey

            i see.. so he was open, supportive, inclusive, and loving.. good to know

        • RJ

          I'm not a religious nut also and I can lump a group of people together if I want. I believe in the values of Christ but not church. Also it is my right to say it only sex was by it design pleasurable. But it also has a purpose to conceive. Why is it illegal to pay for sex. Because it's wrong any good thing in life has a purpose. Two men having sex has no purpose other then pleasure. Same for women. So if I want pleasure of a woman why can't I pay for it. Because it's wrong. Well isn't sticking your prick in some guys poop shoot gross. And a woman eating out a box. Sex only feels good because it needs too, so you keep making baby's. Mother nature. But if I believe that I think all gays should hold there head down in shame. And I state it have I hurt anybody no. Just like Phil hurt nobody. Made a few enemies but made a million new followers. Why because he had the guts to speak his mind. Was he bashing gays no just commented on where he stands. My personal belief there sick in the head and there should be meds for it. Also there are now people that Reyes gay saying life choise.maybe I feel they made wrong choice. And if Phil or I or maybe you next door neighbor want and believe it's as wrong as murder or rape. Guess what that's our right and if we don't want to have you influencing our children that's our right. Unless we the nonbelievers are hurting you or surpressing you in some way other then not including you. Well tough nuggies. So take your squeaky wheel and go do your thing quit trying to change my mind I'm not buying. Also who get the most criticism? People that are load and in your face. Well if they would have stayed out of my face I would've never known they were there. This whole gay things has never been about rights. It's about acceptance and sorry to say you'll never win everybody. So get off the soapbox and go on with your life a shut up already. You don't here me say I'm straight and proud of it. And maybe they might be talurated. I'm teaching my kids it's wrong but you never have to take action unless it's going to hurt you. I told them the samething I told my daughter if he's trys to touch you wrong kick him in the nuts and run. Also I teach them that only person that can judge will do so at the end. So you take the chance but remember if you play with dirt your going to get dirty. So in short leave Phil alone he believes what he wants and you believe what you want. That's freedom. Quit looking for a fight

          • Bailey

            You know, the sad thing is you believe that… so.. .people who are married can choose not to have children should divorce.. so after child bearing years, women should not have sex anymore because that would only be for pleasure.. so every act of sex should be unprotected to make sure it ends in pregnancy.. so sex should NOT be pleasurable even the Creator made it that way.. so promoting stupidity and racism like African Americans were happy are all good things? Okay.. thanks for setting the record state.. Now, how about some scientific rational for being opposed to gay people being in love and happy..

          • Creed3712

            if I said a black man is happy then how is that racism? that is a state of what that person is felling at the time.
            also, where did that married couples that choose not to have kids should devoice? Woman after child bearing years should not have sex anymore?
            That may be some other religion out there but it defiantly is not a Christian teaching.
            need to stay focused bailey. if you want science than you have to focus and not rely on your felling's.

          • Bailey

            yeah… no racial oppression of African American's in this country… all happy folks.. right Creed?

          • Creed3712

            I didn't say a word about oppression (I do acknowledge it) but I just simply state that is one said that they are happy it is just a state of mind. now if you stop putting works in people mouths then we may have a logic conversation.

          • Bailey

            oh, and by the way.. a supreme court in Canada just threw out the prostitution laws due to their discriminatory and vague nature.. but.. men who frequent prostitutes are good guys.. okay.. got it.. and you are wrong, Phil's words were ugly, hateful, and hurtful…..

          • RJ

            Boy won me over with that one. Using Canada as a bases for your argument is like using wow can't think of anything that stupid… I'm at a complete loss for words.

          • Lynda

            ugly, hateful, and hurtful… embrace those words as they apply to you.

          • Larry H

            Sounds to me like you are the hateful one.

          • Lynda

            Pray for him. He is a little lost lamb!

          • bigwood

            As is most of what is in the Bible

        • Lynda

          1. Phil never said “gays are murderers and drunks.” 2. It's not the Christians who are being catered to. 3. You are the one who “heard and read what (you) wanted not what was actually there. 4. You have the entire scenario bass-ackwards.Graceless Hardhead.

          • Bailey

            wow lynda.. how erudite of you…

          • Creed3712

            Well Bailey, she (Lynda) is more scholarly and knowledgeable then the knee-jerk reaction you took when Phil (or anyone else) say a hint of anything that is against what you feel is right

          • Lynda

            Why, thank you Gaily!

        • Enough is Enough

          One, you seem to have missed the point and you seem to be saying that Constitutional Rights do not pertain to everyone. I watched the video and what you have said is not what he said. He did not bash anyone, this country is not keeping the “religious nuts” (is that bashing?) happy. The Christian religion is about the only religion that can not be discussed in our schools. Many years ago Voltaire said, “I disagree with what you say but I will defend unto death your right to say it.” If one was to take your comments out of context as is would be obvious that you are bashing Christians. Phil did not say gay people were murderers or drunks. He said they were all sinners. He has as much right to say that as you have to express your opinion here.

        • Larry H

          You really cant read can you? Read what was said he didnt equate Homosexuals (the proper term) to anything of the sort he was merely saying the sin of homosexuality was sin just as the other things he quoted are sin and for your information he WAS paraphrasing a verse from the bible. As for us spouting our beliefs we have that right at least for now until socialist and communist such as your self finally decide you know everything and vote to take away the freedom of speech just like your heroes Obama, Mao etc etc. We as Christians are the one who have been silenced in this country we can not even pray at school while they make special rooms for the Muslims. I guess I shouldn't be surprised the Bible tells us that these sort of things will happen. I will pray for you because that is what i am supposed to do but sometimes doing the right thing is extremely difficult

        • TomTomA

          Graceann, you really need to work on your reading comprehension. He never “stated that gays are murderers and drunks, then equated them to terrorists”. Read it again. Slowly. I think you'll find that he put them in the category of “sinners”, which also includes murderers, drunks, and terrorists. Analogies usually help people like you: speeding is a crime. Murder is a crime. Does that mean I'm equating speeders with murderers, or calling speeders murderers? It's incredibly ironic that you're tired of “having to say and do things in a way to keep the religious nuts happy”, since what you're demanding is that others say and do things in a way that keeps you happy. Are you even aware of your hypocrisy?

        • Jim Evans

          Graceann Harbach—I think you need to go back and actually read what he said., You speak with forked tongue.

        • clutch1

          Right on!!!! More people have been killed on this planet because of religions than any other reason.

          • Lynda

            Man kills because he is fallen. Jesus saves and is returning. Try not to piss your pants when you meet Him!

          • bigwood

            That is a good save. So when Christians sin they are not acting on God;s behalf so Christianity has clean hands as they are only Christians when they quit sinning?

          • Lynda

            You can't sway me or make me falter in my faith! You are on my prayer list and I am no longer responding to you, totem pole! Have a nice life and GOD BLESS YOU!

        • Brenda prater

          I am very much a believer and Phil Robertson is only doing what God has told us all to do and that is to go out into the world and preach the Gospel and save souls and from what I've been reading there are a lot of souls that need to b listening to what he has to say. If he's stepping on toes by preaching the truth so b it. You should b applauding him for trying to save your soul. Amen

        • Luddiegirl

          The bible says it's a sin. He quoted the bible. The book that Christians should live their lives by. GQ knew what they were doing when they asked him the question. He did not lie or deny his beliefs. In my opinion we are the ones persecuted for our beliefs now. We can not even quote the bible. It states homosexuality is an abomination to God!!
          Phil was not judging and he clearly stated that and also he loves all humanity it is up to the Almighty to judge. But we as Christians should not sugar coat what the bible says. There is a real hell as there is a Heaven. We as Christians are not judging but warning of the true eternal hell.

        • Jim Evans

          I know some gay people that are gay and they said what Phil said didn't bother them one bit. If people get hurt over ” Words ” , then there is something wrong with those people.

      • 204MPH

        Phil for President

        • Bailey

          of the club of racists and morons.

        • Lynda

          He'd have my vote! :)

          • PiscesDan

            ok another winner Lynda. why would Phil have your vote? Because he is a good christian man who speaks his mind? What would make him qualified to be president….knowledge of the economy, foreign affairs, knowledge of nuclear weapons, all of the above? But YOU would vote for him…..amazing!

          • Lynda

            I would vote for him because he's not my 9th cousin, Barack Obama.

          • PiscesDan

            if you notice, I have chosen just the most absurd things Lynda has said to comment on, I have not called her an idiot or called her names. And why do some people just feel the need to pray for others that do not agree with them? PLEASE stop praying for me, I do not want or accept ypour prayers so do not waste your time or prayers….direct them to others who need or want them.

          • Lynda

            You need them more, PiscesDan. It's not up to you to accept them. It's up to God. Jesus also loves the little fishes! > <

          • bigwood

            he loves gay people too

          • bigwood

            a retarded frog would have your vote as long as he could say praise Jesus

      • Bailey

        RJ, what is your issue with gays? Please, don't quote the bible. Give a scientific, rational, coherent reason for not caring for people who are human? Got news for you.. What Phil said was racist.. doesn't matter who agreed with him.. yes.. he had the right to say it.. and people have the right to call him an ignorant and arrogant fool

        • nlebou

          What if his only issue with gays is that according to Gods word it's wrong? Loving the person but not the sin is not wrong.

          • Bailey

            newsflash.. not everyone, in fact, not most of the people in the world are christian and thus don't share their beliefs….

          • killerbrew

            And yet Bailey with the same logic you seem to not want a Christian to be able to have free speech or disagree with you.

          • cavehunter

            true more muslams are in the world they just kill the gays. That's not right eather which do you want around you?

        • Creed3712

          Bailey, Don't fly off the handle but just think about this statement.
          Because homosexual couples can not reproduce, it can only lead to their extinction. Because of a lack of reproduction any “Gay” gen can not be past to the next generation and any that does get into the hetero sex gen pool will become so weakened it will eventually become non existent.
          example: If one Black and one White person had a child that would be 50/50. If that child and future children all reproduced with the one side of a race (pick one it don't mater) then the percentage will go down to 25, 12.5, 6.25, 3.125, etc… until is it is so week that it will become insignificant.
          That is my issue with gays, its a choice not a gen thing and they are trying to set themselves as a protected race when they cant even reproduce.

          • Realist 1975

            WTF is a “Gay gen”…If you think being gay is passed along as a trait to you descendents, YOU ARE A MORON!

          • Creed3712

            Realist,
            Please carefully reread my text, where am I saying or hinting that they gay gen is a good and valid point? I never did or even hinted that it was a good point but just the opposite. My point is that the gay gen is flawed logic.

            Bailey called Phil a racist and was asking for a non-biblical reason for being against homosexuality. If they want to push that speaking out against homosexuality is racist then race is genetic and there is nothing your can do about genetics, you cant control your eye, hair, or skin color right? That is their argument and I just pointed out that the gay gen would be weak and/or dead altogether and there would be less gays as time goes on, not more.

            Although Baily didn't state that his/her belief is that homosexuality is genetic most in the GBTL group do and all I was doing was just pointing out their flawed thinking. they have to get around this augment.

          • Lynda

            Reading comprehension problem again.

          • PiscesDan

            I would think he means GENE but I am not sure…anyone who really thinks in 15 to 20 years someone can be CURED from being gay, I have my doubts

          • bigwood

            With God all things are possible. Even technically a homosexual Jesus because all things are possible with God. Anal babies from two gay men. All things are possible with God. babies from a man fucking a sheep. All things are possible with god

          • DoomedToRepeat

            I never chose to be straight. It's not unreasonable to think that gays aren't making a choice either. Besides, who chooses to be condemned by society ?

          • Creed3712

            Doomed,

            Yes, it is unreasonable to think that they don't have a choice. It is a choice like wanting to eat that cake or ice cream. It is like an addiction (note I said like not is) and like with all addiction it is an enslavement to something. Jesus will help and it may take many years (like 15-20 years) and you have to be patient and resist the temptation but you can be free from that life style.

      • HRT

        Not looking for a fight or anything but im a believer and if you look at the old testament, they said nothing about homosexuality being bad or ok. It was never really brought up. Oh and just like how the African Americans got their “name” when they were slaves(and still used today) the gays got there name the same way. People just started to call them that, it wasnt something were they said “Oh lets call eachother gays and fags!” They actually really take offensive to it most of the time. Im really trying to be neutral, but thats just something that i learned.

        • Bailey

          homos.. wow.. is that really the best you can do?? do you refer to African American's with the n word? how about to Asian people with the g or c words, how about to Latino's as w-tbacks… mabey to Native people as Injuns.. yep.. no discrimination in YOUR mind…

          • HRT

            sir i am MIXED. I have everything you just mentioned in my family and I do not call anyone a name besides the one that their parents gave them or what they go by. And i said homosexuality not homos and it is the correct term. I was also talking to RJ. it was just a simple statement, not an arguement.

          • cavehunter

            “N” word refers to the color of there skin. Caucasians do not get up set when called white is that not a raciest remark also?

          • DoomedToRepeat

            African Americans don't get upset when called black or brown. Those are colors. The “N” word isn't about color. People from India are Caucasians, and they can be very dark.

          • cavehunter

            “N” is a color it is Spanish for black. Look on a bucket of paint that is black. if it is not about color then what did it start out being about? I know it was not slavery if so the Jews would be called that as they were slaves for the Egyptians.

          • PiscesDan

            WOW! You are kiding right?

          • bigwood

            Black or brown refers to the color of their skin The N word is just a hateful way for racist to try and show their disdain for a whole race of people they feel is beneath them

        • Creed3712

          HRT, WHAT!!!!! the old testament said like 5-6 time that homosexuality is wrong. If you want the passages I will be more then happy to give them to you.

        • bigwood

          Creed3712 does seem like a backwoods moron but the Bible goes as far as to tell you to Stone homosexuals to death. It also says Noah built a giant arc and fit one of every creature on it. Jesus was raised from the dead after his virgin mother had him and if your eye makes you sin gouge it out. So you really have to consider the source anyway

      • Bailey

        Okay, RJ.. a little history for you.. I am Native American..and I don't like your culture.. so get the f off my land.. now.. doesn't that sound intelligent.. .here is another news flash.. I can dissent, disagree, and state my opinion.. interesting how it only applies to people YOU agree with… lol

        • Lynda

          I am also Native American. NEWS FLASH! No one cares about your opinion but you. I am not going to respond to you again. I will pray for you because you are a lost, angry soul.

        • LostInKansas

          pssst Bailey…. i would say a few prayers as well to protect against her prayers. i would NEVER want someone to pray for me with that attitude. Ever.

          • Creed3712

            lostinkansas,
            have you been reading baileys comments? He is in a lot of pain. And what attitude does Lynda have? If she prays to have his heart held and you pray against that which one do you believe Jesus will listen to?

          • Lynda

            Pick me! :)

          • Lynda

            Praying for YOU Kansas! :) Sorry you're lost!

          • bigwood

            I love how you use your praying for you as a backward dig. I think you are missing the point of Praying. By the way I think we found a real live “Church Lady”
            Now I am going to say a little prayer against you Lynda

        • RJ

          No I love that we are having this out because it is what makes this country strong. But as far as the Native American in you guess what I'm 50% Ojibwa and the English came over and settled our forefathers lands Than kicked our asses then made a stupide treaty. And we now use the white man tech and destroy mother earth. We are no better then them. Really my hate for people is toward how things were 25 years ago simple people stayed out of others lives and you kept your personal life in the home. I believe that a man has a right to stand up and say I hate Gays! And then not have the backlash that Phil is getting. Also people didn't know my back ground in high school and would say the only good Indian is a dead one. Well did I hate them? At first but soon I realized that is there right. Freedom the thing our forefather were fighting for. Sorry to say I believe the TV producer over stepped and discriminated on Phil's right of free speech and is on being punished for speaking out on those beliefs. And that is totally wrong as wrong as what the white man did to our forefather. A great chief always listens and lets his people speak. This gives people self worth. If people like Phil keep getting suppressed something bad will eventually happen and somebody is going to get hurt or worse. Do I think a Gays should die no. No more then the Jews did by Hitler's mad rants. But where did that come from. Lets see after world war I the united nations suppressed Germany with a iron fist they had no say. Big mistake and it finally blew and the people followed Hitler because they believed no matter how wrong it was it had it be done somebody had to take charge and Hitler had snapped took charge. Yes that is bigger but do you really want to live in a world where saying the wrong thing or believing in the wrong thing and you could be punished. Great example Obama Care there are so many taxes in it and all toward people trying to make a better life for themselves, getting ahead and the lazy and week drag them down. Again bigger but relevant its like before civil war America. Black represent the people wanting to make a better life. The whites being the lazy and system milkier riding on the backs of the Black man or the people that are working to have a better and richer life. This country is going to pop and its going to be over something a stupid as gay rights. They have the right to be gay but why do they want the same things like marriage. Call it something else because it is. WOW big problem we are proud we want what you have. Ok slave owner take and give nothing in return hey take my freedom of speech while your at it. Now you have the same rights by law ok no more playing the gay card. That's another thing they seam to do. They can get all up in your face about you not agreeing then when you get in there they cry hate crime. Wow it is sad. Want the same rights but not the same rules. Hope you can see where my anger comes from. Its not that they are gay but that they take more rights just because they are. Special treatment. where is the equal rights in that. They want there cake and eat it too. just like the poor and lazy and like the slave owners. But someday somebody's going to snap like the Germans did and people will follow and people will get hurt. Then last marriage by definition a union between a man and woman. Simple but again they want it changed. No make it a Garriage I know dumb word but its an example. Start something and make it your own. Ok off my soapbox nice banter

      • clutch1

        you can pee in your pants if you want to also. That is a big right.
        But if you want to anathematize gays and non christians you are stepping on other peoples toes you moron, they have rights too.
        And if you cannot respect other views and accept people for who they are you are the one who should leave.

      • Bailey

        you don't believe is gays because they are fairy tales? LIke Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny… you don't believe in gays because only 10% of the population or more identifies with this orientation? You don't believe in gays because they threaten your lifestyle, whatever that might be? Or is it that you are simply a homophobic fool spewing discrimination like Phil? I am guessing the last one…

      • bigwood

        you are right everyone has freedom of speech christians to say and quote ignorant shit from the book of jewish fairtales. Gay people to say how ignorant and even a business that says they don't want to be associated with an ignorant redneck

        Actually the country wasn't founded on Christian beliefs.

          Actually it was founded on Christian Judeo values.

      • bigwood

        Kind of Ironic that the nation was built on christian beliefs but the first amendment you keep praising for Phil tells you that the country does not have a religion and prohibits morons like you from ever being able to making Christianity the national religion.

      • jonathan larche

        Sadly we live in a both upside and sideways world. If you, or I, or Phil call a homosexual a “queer,” we risk losing our jobs, our income, our reputation. But homosexuals can and do call one another “queer” all the time without so much as a nod by the media. The same with the “nig” word, which is so taboo that on-line forums like these will not even print it. Yet blacks use the term like water. Hip hop culture is laced with the word. But be white and admit to saying the word – even 20 years ago – and you are toast. We don't live in a free America anymore. The media, the governent, the very identity of the nation has been co-opted by the “progressives,” who once used to honestly call themselves what they were: The American Communist Party. Sadly too, the Democrat Party has been taken over by the same mentality and indiciduals.

      no, many of us thought her conduct was disgusting and despicable and ugly.. so were robertson's word.. where the hell did he EVER get the idea that African Americans were happy? Talk about arrogance and ignorance..

    • libproud

      Hey,aintnoyuppiegirl,maybe you should kind of get out of your post Reagan bubble,and notice that Miley Cyrus is a lot closer to “Phil” in lack of intelligence and “Shit for the doofs” than you think.See Amy Bee.Mylie Cyrus has a lot more in common w/ this “Phil” fifteen minutes of fame craphead than you think.Ah yes,I see you buy into the perversion of christianity and that all that “Born Again” laughable sickness.The cards have been turned on what is moral,and what is not,since 1980,and you got suckered!!!!! Don't blame me…Bring back phil!!!! Yup another chuckleheaded sappy assed “murcan” heard from.

    • libproud

      Miley Cyrus smokes a joint on stage,and touches herself due to the fact that she is a no talent shithead like “Phil”…Crap,do I have to trot out the connect the dots coloring books for you also???? Check out Janis Joplin,and Tom Jones on his show back in the day.youtube,all you “Hipsters” know about works well.Janis did not use stupid assed “Props” to get the fools all revved up.She did not need it.That voice said it all!!!!!!!

    • JackMist

      I'd rather be a fan of Miley whom I'm guessing supports our American ideals of Freedom and Justice for all, than a fan of Phil who's willing to worship and believe in an unjust God. I myself have too many morals for Phil's brand of Christianity.

      I am not sure when it happened, but free speech now only belongs to certain individuals in America.

The fact is that if do say anything that anyone doesn't want hear anymore, well, you are out of here Bubba.

        Duck, Duck…just got goosed….LOL!!!

  • jonnyohio

    What gets me is I watch this show, and his views on homosexuality were already known based on things he said on the show. So WTF suspend him over this? If they wanted the man to tickle their hears then they shouldn't have gone with questions about his personal moral view point. Also A&E announced his views were not theirs. Okay, then why suspend him from the show? If those are not your views then okay, say so, and leave it at that. So sick and tired of some people getting butt hurt over some remark and then some stupid bleeding heart liberal going over board in their reaction to it.

    • hunter

      This is standard political correctness attack from the left. They are only tolerant of people that share their views. I strongly disagree with his comparison of “homosexuality ” and “beastiality” however his comments most likely just show his ignorance of gay lifestyles not coming into contact with too many GLBTs in the Louisiana swamp. Doubtful his comments were intended to be hurtful. Unfortunately it is just the way many under-educated deeply religious southerners with little other life experience outside their world think. I know many good people that have similar beliefs until their eyes are opened by different experiences over time.

      • Ct

        The man has both a bachelors and a masters degree. I'd hardly call him uneducated.

        • svenj

          then perhaps he should study a bit more before he makes comments, as the editors pointed out Mitt Romney is from Boston not Salt Lake City and a large portion of the Third Reich were Christians, Lutherans to be exact. They certainly said that they believed in Jesus.

          • Dan Sumner

            Study? Why cause you got your feelings hurt? Poor baby. Grow the F up and deal with it. Not everyone thinks the way you do. And you cannot legislate free will.

          • Albatross

            Phil not knowing that the Nazi's were christians is a demonstration of his acute ignorance. I don't see how “hurt feelings” come into play here. Does he really have a masters degree? From where, and in what field of expertise?

          • dontbestupid

            SShhheeett. Some of the Nazi's were Christains but, Hitler was not . He would have the German people believe that so to better accomplish his goals in the guise of doing Gods work .

          • nlebou

            While earning his degrees at LA Tech Phil Robertson also played a little football. He was the starting quarterback. Phil Robertson could have easily played for the NFL, but gave up football for hunting and fishing. Curious as to how good he was? Terry Bradshaw, the NFL great, was the back-up quarterback for Phil Robertson.

            Although it may appear the Phil Robertson doesn't use his master's degree in education, but that may not be entirely true. He must have used his education when creating Duck Commander into a million dollar empire.

        As one of those deeply religious southerners from Louisiana, most of the state isn't swamp. I have four degrees in chemistry, pharmacy, and two is history. We aren't morons and a lot of us don't have a problem with other people's lifestyles. Your opinion was both dismissive and somewhat contemptuous of people in this state. His opinions reflect his own prejudices and he his hardly unaware of exactly what he meant. Hatred is hatred and he may hold whatever opinion he wishes, but he should also be aware that most companies have clauses about publicly spreading those opinions, especially while in a situation that represents the company.

        • Dan Sumner

          Those clauses are put in there so that they have a way to punish him if he HURTS the show. But in this case he actually stated what he states on the show. They knew full well that he says these things. So why go after him now? Please explain. 11 Million people a week have been hearing him say things like this and up till now no one has said anything. It is not like he said all gay people should be whipped or that he thinks they all should go to he!!. He said he loves all and it is not for him to judge. If you do not like the guy, don't watch him. Like I do with Miley and Charlie Sheen.

      • Tony B

        I guess if he lived in New York City and went ahead and got his PHD rather than stopping after he got his masters then announced he was an atheist homosexual drunk that got aroused when he saw the muscular haunches of a Bulldog you would be in full support of everything he said.

      • Charles Harris

        HE DID NOT COMPARE HOmosexuality and beastiality, he was asked what his definition of sin was, He simply named things he believed to be sins.. he did not say homo = beast or led one to the other.. geesh folks quit reading mmore int than what was there.! The only thing he said both were sins according to his belief.

      You know, I take offense to your comment. I was right their with you until you said, “Stupid bleeding heart liberal.” No need to start calling names. That makes you no better than the people hating on Phil Robertson. I agreed with you and that is the problem with this country. It's not about what is right or wrong, it's about that almighty conservative or liberal opinion. I think A&E is violating his first amendment right!

      • Rene

        Well no, A&E is not violating his first amendment rights. A&E is a private company. First Amendment rights are founded in the Constitution. The Constitution allows under the First Amendment that you are free to speak your views without interference from the government (except for fighting words that endanger safety). A&E is not the government. It is an private employer and you do not have the right to say whatever you want and whatever you think without consequences from your employer. Go tell your boss what you really think of him or her, call it free speech and see what happens. Please people educate yourselves about something before using it as part of your commentary.

        • Emma

          I seem to recall that Dog the Bounty Hunter was in the “No H8” campaign. A & E even taped the photo shoot and put it on the show. My only question is the following: If the Dog the Bounty a Hunter clan can support gay rights on A & E, why can't Phil Robertson give his opinion in an interview that really has no affiliation with A&E? (This question comes from a conservative woman, who believes homosexuality is completely wrong, but would never hate a soul because of it.)

          • abacab

            you answered your own question. A&E made the decision in both cases, not the actor.

        • bobby

          You really need to check your understanding of the constitution.

        I agree. It's not the government that fired him, it was his employer. If I owned a business and an employee said something in public, as a representative of my company, that caused a response like this did then I would have to fire them too.

        This is about being a public figure and having to deal with the fallout of what you say. He has a right to freedom of speech and his opinion, but he didn't have a right to his job. Like it or not, saying the stuff that he said will land you in hot water quick. I will leave it to others to decide whether the court of public opinion is skewed the wrong way or not.

        Now, if the government shows up to punish him over his statements that's when I will get upset.

        • TiredOfGLB

          So who the f decides what is offensive? Because to me what you and other bleeding heart liberals have said here is EXTREMELY offensive to me.
          So your employers should all fire the heck out of you!
          Get my drift? “Offensive” is solely in the mind of the offended person and can be any thing I or you or any one else says it is!
          And I and thousands (hundreds of thousands or millions?) of others are EXTREMELY offended by A&E's actions. So I will vote with my pocket book and cut them off from any air time in my home!
          So we had 1000 gays “offended” by his remarks and 230 million normal red blooded Americans offended by gays and their life style.
          Get over it! Normal people do not like the gay life style. Nor do we like their agenda being shoved down our throats! Pun intended!
          Don't mean any one wishes them harm. Don't mean we should hate them.
          Nor does it mean we should welcome them into our homes and adopt their lifestyle!

          • ns@nospam.net

            How are Phil Robertson's remarks “RACIAL?” Also,, media is saying Phil does not have a right to a TV show. That is correct! However, he does have a right NOT to be fired over relious views/opinions.
            To GLBT I say foul. You have a double standard!

            I think the REST of the “Duck Dynasty” should stand behind Phil and say, “respect our rights to our own opinions AND the right to express them.” OR strike A&E!!!!!!
            Scott

          • mark

            Racial because he said black people were happy under jim crow so i guess jews were happy under nazi germany too it was a ignorant statement and downs the civil rights movement who many died to fight for basic rights

          • the_man2580

            You are right that you can vote with your pocket book. And you are also right that a lot of people disagree with A&E on this. In this case the people who decided what is offensive was A&E and vocal, organized segments of the population. But there are a lot of people claiming a violation of free speech in this case, and there just isn't one. This is just a guy that got in trouble with his employer and got fired.

            As far as the issue of who was right and who was wrong, well that is up for debate. GLADD got involved and A&E didn't want to deal with the fallout of being called bigoted or behind the times, so they fired the guy. GLADD is also researching any company that uses this guy as a spokesperson for their product, so the fallout from this isn't over. Anyone annoyed at A&E will likely have to add other companies to this list in the near future.

            From what I have read a lot of people agree with your point of view though, and GLADD has stated they are shocked by the amount of people who are upset with them and A&E over this.

            But, unless the government gets involved I don't really see the point of bringing politics into it. There is no free speech issue here, although there may be a “society is changing in ways we don't like” sort of discussion that can be had. Or, even a special interest group discussion. But at this point, there isn't any government involvement and I don't expect there to be any.

  • Get over it!!!

    In the bible it say's ADAM & EVE, not ADAM & ADAM or EVE & EVE. That dose not mean we hate gay people to each its own. Everyone is entitle to there opinion!!!! What ever happen to freedom of speech. I am really disappointed in A&E>:( So quit your crying, get over it!!!!!! Bring Phil back! We love Duck Dynasty.

  • pdr

    We have shows like keeping up with kartrashians and jersey whore and don't forger snookie and j-wow..and.on and on… And and we have an issue with a guy that has strong family values and morals.. He has a right to his religion and opinion, it wasn't on the show anyway….. I'm not anti gay..so shut the hell up !!!

  • Riff Raff

    So apparently free speech means only if you have something nice to say?!? I don't agree with his opinion but I've served in the military twice to defend his right to say it

    • Amy Bee

      If there were no free speech, Phil would be in jail, not out of a job. Read a book.

      • Riff Raff

        What does reading a book have to do with anything? I'm supporting his right to free speech, I don't condone what he said but he still has the right to say it

        • sagax

          he absolutely has the right to say it. which is why nobody is trying to arrest him for saying words. freedom of speech is not freedom from consequences of what you say. end of statement.

          • Dan Sumner

            Freedom from Consequences my butt. This is typical Tail wagging the dog. The majority (80-85%) love this guy and feel he should be put back on the air. If A&E cared about their viewers, they would put him right back on. This is the vocal minority trying to get their way. And the silent majority is crying out for a change and the vocal minority do not know how to deal with it. So they start calling anyone that does not agree with them all kinds of filthy names, the usual. Makes what he said seem pretty tame. Getting real tired of being called a Bigot, Hypocrite, Hater, Bible Thumper, Moron, Hitler, etc etc., but Miley can touch herself and she is still allowed on TV? Cuckoo…

        • Dan Sumner

          I condone it. He never said anything hateful. He said they love all and it not their place to judge. You ever read an interview by Charlie Sheen? Double Standard.

      • the_man2580

        You are right. Freedom of speech refers to the government not limiting your freedom to say what you want. Your employer, on the other hand, can fire the hell out of you if you say the wrong thing in public while representing them the way this guy did.

        • Dan Sumner

          Same things he states on the show all the time. So why is it an issue now? I bet their show is watched monthly by more people than read GQ, and yet they never went after him when he said crazy things on the show. But now that he is in a Liberal Mag it is offensive. Coockoo

          • the_man2580

            It was the GQ magazine article that got the attention of GLADD.

            GLADD says they got tons angry and outraged phone calls and emails within minutes of the article being posted. At that point they contacted A&E demanding that something be done. The rest, as they say, is history. A&E had to pick a side and they didn't want to pick the side that was perceived to be anti-LGBT.

            If I had to guess I bet A&E was pissed at having to disturb a show that has been a huge success for them. But what else could they do once the ball was in their court? They had to either choose to stand by this guys comments or condemn them. A network doesn't necessarily share the beliefs that are spouted by people on the shows they carry, as we all know. But once a challenge like this is made in public by a group like GLADD that says a protected group is being harmed by comments on their network they have to pick sides.

            Duck dynasty attracted attention from the wrong organization, and now they are paying for it. But, that's the way it goes.

          • Amy Bee

            He said on the show that African Americans were happy living under Jim Crow? Which episode was that?

          • Charles Harris

            get off of it , amy bee, all he said those blacks he worked in the field with were happy, that he never heard them blame any of their woes on the white folks, that they took care of their business and were happy. He most likely was talking about 15 to 50 blacks he was hoeing cotton with. I hoed and picked cotton along with blacks myself, we ate and rested under the same shade tree .We were all just making a living best we could.

        • bobby

          They (A&E) DO NOT have that right under the 1st amendment. See this is the difference between perceived law and actual law. You are wrong sir.. I will be following up with actuall links to, and quotes from The Constitution Of The United States of America !! Read it people.

      • dudelazers

    so tired of the “everyone is entitled to their own opinion” argument because it simply isn't true. there are a host of “opinions” that no one is entitled to. and Phil's views aren't his “opinion”. He didn't decide to include those teachings in the bible. he also probably didn't become Christian because of its teachings on homosexuality. he merely answered that according to thebible homosexuality is a sin and that is a verifiable fact. it is also a fact that all sex for pleasure is considered a sin by the bible

    • mark

      It also says its a sin to work on the sabbath so tim tebow is a huge sinner and going strait to hell with the rest of the nfl. Ripd jeans is also a sin and cutting your hair or beard but the conservatives grasp being gay what about all the other sins nobody cares about

        Its not a sin to work on the Sabbath. The Sabbath was Saturday in the old Testament and Christ fulfilled it. We are no longer under law but under grace. Homosexuality is a sin along with addiction, fornication, stealing, lying. All of those people will be in the lake of fire if they do not repent and turn to Christ.

      You could say the same thing about minorities. All these gook, nigger, wetbacks need thicker skin, but same thing would happen. And yet when they show homosexuality on TV all the white trash talking about freedom of speech say “I don't want these fags on my TV, they don't need to put their sexuality in my face! I don't put my straightness in their face.” Freedom of expression my ass. I'd gladly you send you back in time to the 1920s where you belong.

    Phil said nothing wrong! I hope shows like his take over the television, because most of the other stuff is pure trash! When we grew up there was nothing on tv like what we have today. Our kids are exposed to so much trash and their young minds have no way to know how to process it. Hollywood puts more and more garbage on tv, at all times of the day and society allows it. God forbid there be any “sensorship”. Being allowed to speak freely shouldn't include putting something in front of a child that is not appropriate. Even commercials are offensive and inappropriate for a child these days. And, No, parents are not fully responsible. You cannot keep your child in a bubble. Society glamorizes all the “gangsta rappers” and “Miley's” and most of them have drug issues or crime issues or moral issues. We allow it in our youth's faces all the time, yet when our children get into trouble based on the mixed messages we adults send them, we penalize them as adults in the courts! Really? These poor kids are doomed if we don't turn things around fast. Watch the news. Most of the people getting into serious trouble are kids!! Give our kids back their childhood innocence and get the trash off of tv and the loser drug dealers out of the media spotlight and get more and more shows like Duck Dynasty on tv!

            mark :) What I was trying to say is that a sin is a sin is a sin :) It doesn't matter who or what the sin. It is all the same . There is no big or small sin… Phil is intitled to his opinion … He is not a gay homophobe because he believes in the Bible and the word of God and the words spoken by our savior Jesus Christ. I said I would pray for you not to stir the pot , only to be a light in the Times of Darkness. You sounded as though you thought maybe Phil Robertson was a fake in his belief system? Well the Romans also thought Jesus was a fake or/ imposter to, you see this is why Jesus took up his cross for all of us and died for our sins . “by his stripes we are healed” So in short weather a sin by a heterosexual or a homosexual in Gods eyes a sin is a sin. Phil robertson never differentiated between the two at all he said ” the almighty will sort them out” we don't judge…

    It has nothing to do with freedom of speech, he violated his contract so he got fired. If he knew he could not control himself then why did he sign a contract saying he could?

      • violet

        So…. you would expect to not get fired by your boss if you said a bunch of highly controversial things that went against the views of the company to a major international magazine? I would guarantee if you said things to a huge publication that directly go against the company's standards though would be let go. It happens all the time based on things like inappropriate Facebook posts, etc… and this was an international publication. If you are saying that no one should be fired for publicly speaking out in a way that would go against the values of a company then I can understand and respect that… but we're you as equally outraged last week when a gay man got fired from a Catholic organization because he married his partner of 12 years? He got fired because the church, who had known he was gay and had a partner, didn't like that he made it public….. they didn't like that he was publicly doing/saying something that went against his employers standards. Most people's reaction to this was,”Well, he obviously should have seen that coming.” He married his partner of 12 years… the other guy made negative comments in an international publication…. both went publicly against their company's standards…. both got fired. So, if you are going to act like someone shouldn't be fired for publicly sharing their beliefs you had better not make it one-sided.

  • Yaya

    I don't watch Duck Dynasty, but after reading the excerpts from the GQ article, I really don't think that Phil Robertson had ill-intent in what he said. I think that, sometimes meaning get lost in the written word and it is HOW something is said, rather than WHAT is said. I think that had we actual heard the interview, rather than read the interview, we would know what he was trying to convey. I don't think that he is ignorant, but I do believe that he should think before he speak because, educated or not,” it is better to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” -Abraham Lincoln

Then you'll learn what real repression and control is all about. Moderation and consideration is the key. Don't cast your pearls before swine. They will trample them and then turn a cut you up. Phil made a statement of belief. He didn't say to hang anyone or burn them at the stake and yet many people react as though he did. You want tolerance? Then give tolerance to this man. Agree to disagree if that's your stance.

    I for one, will not watch A@E again or even glance at a GQ magazine.These people love that this has been stirred up..it only makes them more money. Yes, we are allowed freedom of speech, but it comes with a price…when others dont’ agree with you, the haters true colors come out and show thru. I am sick of reading all the hate spewed messages to Phil. Even if you don't agree with what he said, why do you feel a need to destroy him, and even worse, go digging in the past. Let one of you (myself included) tell me that you've never said anything that wasn't p.c. and I will call you a liar! It's to a point where people are afraid to stand up for their beliefs. Come on people…were all in this together, why not practice peace, patience, and forgiveness and understanding?! Phil and his family are in my prayers!

    This family seems so perfect that people look for flaws. I love the Robertsons for what they do for television… No sex, no drugs… Just family friendly comedy.

  • duck hunter

    From a Biblical definition, Robertson was spot on.
    The greek umbrella word for fornication is pornia,[ were the word pornography comes from] and that is the word used in the new testament. It was defined by the greek language as any sex outside marriage. This included, Adultery, sex between unmarried couples, male and female ,male and male female and female, also included is sex with a beast. Pornia is, outright, condemned in the Bible both in the old and new testament. While some forms of pornia is more serous, in degree of sin, and others are less. Adultery is considered treacherous, others are condemned in the Bible as brazen loose conduct, while some forms are considered against nature, perverted. Of course, pedophilia, rape, sex with ones close family member, ect. would be included. 1 Corinthians 5:1-6

    His point of view, is strictly a religious Bible based view point and should be understood that way. Those who believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, accept this as truth. Those who do not, will not accept it. Christians who are followers of Jesus accept his condemnation of pornia and if one commits pornia they must repent and change their course of life and not repeat the sin. Jesus was questioned on this very subject by the religious leaders of his time. On the issue of divorce. Matthew 10:11; 19:9 . Here, Jesus used Pornia on both occasions giving grounds for divorce. This would be any sex with any other living creature outside of the marriage. From a Bible's point of view, Robertson was correct. This does not mean society as a whole will accept it. Isaiah 5:18,20,21,23; Matthew 17:17

    Isn't this the whole Chick-fil-a issue all over again? Should we really be surprised by his comments/responses when we know the man has strong Christian beliefs? Will the Duck Dynasty fans boycott the station and the gays boycott the show? Just asking… Whether you agree or disagree with his statement the fact that he is confident to stand for his beliefs and not hide them to maintain his celebrity status takes true character. Especially with the way our society is so afraid of offending others. Speaking your feelings also comes with respecting others decisions on their beliefs and Phil does seem to do that. You don't see him judging and acting on his judgments. Something to be said for that.

  • crewcap

    Its stated somewhere that, “Wrong will become right and Right will become wrong”, Our society has become so PC its almost shocking, but not surprizing. Some where it also warns us about these difficult times to come. What is most obvious is the lack of tolerance for a mans beliefs as a christian, and now how a minority of some peoples behavior stears the media and dictates what is appropriate thought and morality. Hang in there brother Phil, your right where you need to be, “Greater then he who is in me then he who is in the world”. Thats written somewhere to, I've read before.

    I don't see a problem with anything he said. In his small world that he grew up in and lived most of his life he probably didn't see a lot of issues that people in urban areas have seen. At the end of the day he has a good heart and cares about people and he has a right to say what he said. If A & E wants to suspend him so be it, and the fans of the show that think Phil is right will speak through their actions in the coming weeks and months.

  • Shorty

    Gary Newman wrote a song many years ago called “Short People” Short people got no reason
    Short people got no reason
    Short people got no reason

    They got little hands
    Little eyes
    They walk around
    Tellin’ great big lies
    They got little noses
    And tiny little teeth
    They wear platform shoes
    On their nasty little feet

    Well, I don't want no short people
    Don't want no short people
    Don't want no short people
    `Round here

    Short people are just the same
    As you and I
    (A fool such as I)
    All men are brothers
    Until the day they die
    (It's a wonderful world)

    Short people got nobody
    Short people got nobody
    Short people got nobody
    To love

    They got little baby legs
    That stand so low
    You got to pick em up
    Just to say hello
    They got little cars
    That go beep, beep, beep
    They got little voices
    Goin’ peep, peep, peep
    They got grubby little fingers
    And dirty little minds
    They're gonna get you every time
    Well, I don't want no short people
    Don't want no short people
    Don't want no short people
    ‘Round here
    I would love to see any other group be replaced in these lyrics
    and see the outrage.

      You mean Randy Newman???

    • CowboySlim

      Randy Newman wrote that song couched in sarcasm. It was an attempt to show the stupidity and ridiculousness of bigotry. The “short people” was a place-holder euphemism for any and all hated and downtrodden people, whether they were hated for color, thought, religion or whatever. Unfortunately, the message of the song, that we are ALL God's children, that we all have to live together on this earth (those are MY interpretations) seems to have gotten lost on us. Simple songs like, “Jesus Loves The Little Children” and Randy Newman's song carry huge messages with simple lyrics, hopefully so that anyone can listen to them and understand the message and use it in their daily lives. There is far too much intolerance and ingorance in MOST of the posts on this free website and in the world we live in. Now, somebody, come on and say that that was ignorant and intolerant of me to say so. Idiots….

    Let's see, he started a successful duck call business and is a multi-millionaire, I don't think he's too worried about being kicked off the show for stating his personal opinion. I'm guessing that a majority of the people that watch the show are of the same beliefs and they will quit watching the show and buying the “Duck Dynasty” merchandise which benefits A&E and will instead buy Duck Commander and Buck Commander merch which benefits the Robertsons.

  • Beany Babe Dethsquad

    People need to get some perspective. This isn't a freedom of speech issue or a left or right issue. I could go into work tomorrow and loudly compare Christians to Nazis and I'd probably be lucky to just be suspended. I'd probably be fired. If you work for a corporation (which obviously anyone on TV does), you can't say offensive things that are going to become public because corporations are terrified of offending anyone.

  • Terri W Meeks

    Interesting that the A&E executive had a conference call with GLAAD and then decided to suspend. Hmmmm…and the only comparison he made was that his belief and Bible teaching says homosexuality, beastiality, adulterer, liars, etc. etc. were “sin”. He answered a question asked of him. Why did GQ ask???? So, crazy!

  • JJShiggy

    I think GQ magazine set Phil up to answer a question they knew his answers would get him in trouble and or raise some brows. Shame on them. A&E will get what's coming to them and that's loosing a good family/kid friendly oriented show and will loose many viewers. Americans need to grow a pair and not be afraid to speak there minds. Those getting butt hurt for comments people make need to grow up and learn how stop being sissys. If you live in America your entitled to FREE SPEECH even if others get there feelings hurt. Grow up people.

  • JJShiggy

    If you notice Phil's comments were not strictly geared towards the GLBT community. It states many different parties including drunks,sex offenders etc. Grow up people and stop getting butt hurt over every little thing a person says. Its a reality show, not a please everyone in the world show.

  • aintnoyuppiegirl

    Ok this is getting way out of hand I am sorry I compared anyone because that has just led to overwhelming sarcasm (and yes I understood the sarcasm, it was just horrible sarcasm involving Hitler is what I meant. no one compares to him sarcastically or not.) and idiocy. So, straight and to the point, Phil was asked what he considered sinful behavior, his response was not even his opinion it was what the bible says is considered sinful-he started with homosexuality meaning that out of sinful behavior that is sinful but probably the least sinful-then he continued with adultery, bestiality and terrorism being the MOST sinful. He wasn't comparing, he wasn't accusing he was citing the bible like he was asked and started with the least sinful and branched out. How is that wrong?

  • christian

    in my opinion everyone should boycott a&e and the Robertson family should say screw it we are done!!! how can people dictate on your religious beliefs. what happened to freedom of speech. how come it is ok for some people to say what they want and others cant!!! as far as I am concerned even tho I really enjoy the Robertson family I am done watching the a&e channel and hope that everyone else does too!!

  • DoneIT

    I dont care if you agree with Phil's beliefs or not. This is about a man, that was asked a question about his faith, and his personal beliefs. He never said that the world had to be just like him, or that A&E had to agree. He spoke his opinion based on his faith. LIke it or not Christian beliefs are that homosexuality, cheating, lying, stealing etc are all sins. Does that mean that Christians hate or are against those people in general…NO. It simply means they believe it is a sin. They also believe- if you read the article- that God is the judge of those sins, and that we are not. THE END. I agree, if he had got on there and professed his love for allah, or his faith in plural marriage, it would have irked people, but he wouldnt have been kicked off his own show. This is a show based on Christian men, living thier lives. Why all the shock that his personal beliefs go along with that faith. He did not compare homosexuality to bestiality. He said the sins in america go from homosexuality and span out all the way to bestiality. He also included with sleeping with multiple people etc. Its funny that we all preach equality and freedom of thinking, but that actually only applies to certain things. People are offended daily by things, maybe highly religous people are offended by GLAADs point of view, or maybe people in general are offended with Sister Wives, or 19 kids and counting. Yes people gripe about it, but they dont take them off the air.

  • DUCK BOYS FAN

    this is a bunch of bullshit Phil is not the senator or the government he is just a normal person just like everyone else with his beliefs so why judge him he has a right to speask his mind and have a freedom of speech. Hell look at all those no good people who bitch and whin because the ducks boys have their beliefs and pray on their show which there is not a damn thing wrong that I love it. here is one for ya its ok for jack ass to do and say what they want and get away with it. and its ok for the mother who killed her little girl and drove around with her little girls dead body in the trunk of her car for a month and just got a slap on the hand.COME PEOPLE GROW AND PUT YOUR SELF IN PHIL'S SHOES JUST TO SEE HOW YOU WOULD FEEL OVER YOUR BELIEFS AND BE JUDGED FOR THAT. THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON WHO IS ALOUD TO JUDGE AND THAT IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.

  • anyfishinsea

    FYI I have never seen Duck Dynasty. I have no idea who Phil Robertson is and wouldn't recognize him if I ran him over on the street. Politically, I am the as far from the religious right as California is from the moon, and I am quite certain that this character's religious beliefs border on insanity, or voodoo. That said, getting fired from a top rated reality show for the anti-gay comments I saw, is a far worse example of bad judgment than anything this poor lost soul has even imagined. A&E has turned the court of public opinion from a well deserved victory for gay and lesbian civil liberties into a revival tent circus. Dumb move. Stupid.

    he should have said that before they paid him millions, when a idiot get money they think they can say whatever. the constitution is a piece of trash. who would say you have freedom of speech without clarifying it. you just open up a can of maggots. rewrite it. you have to change with the generation.

    First of all the issue of the matter is that this should have the right to free speech even if his view of society is a bit skewed based on his vantage point. I commend him for being human enough to say what he wants despite his celebrity. The show does depict good family values. Gays really have to get off their soapbox every time someone says being gay is wrong. Fellow Christians, the bible ALSO says to obey the law of the land. So, since being gay nor giving your opinion is illegal anywhere in America, go on with your life. We all have our demons but how another person chooses to live their life has no effect on your quality of life….and just because I like adding fuel to the fire for the “PATRIOTS” who keep citing Hitler, we celebrate people who utilized genocide to forcibly seize land from people they seen themselves as greater than. And that's with the omission of slavery, which they engaged in but not solely responsible as other Africans sold Africans to the Slave Trade, after white and Native slaves died from sickness and weak immune systems.

    • DoomedToRepeat

      But the whites who owned slaves often considered themselves Christians. Should they not be held to a higher standard than the “heathen” Africans ?

  • Valerie Watt

    Hey everyone is entitle to an opinion Hey look at Gail King making a reference to “Oh that must be a white thing” really nobody jumped all over her and she is as racist as racist can be with her little friend oprah

    • DoomedToRepeat

      I don't think she is as racist as racist can be. Skinheads are much closer to racist as racist can be. They would like to kill people who don't look like them. I doubt if Oprah or Gail are that extreme.

  • Rumek Borialis

    The sad thing is that people who want to express their freedom are condemning a man for exercising his. Never fault someone for their belief, it is theirs. If they choose to share it, listen or don't, that is when you can exercise your freedom. I support both Phil and same sex marriages… enough said.

  • Meme Sosoui

    Black people never sang the blues. Words of wisdom. ◔_◔

  • agrafixman

    Let's be fair. Phil Robertson is free to speak his mind. Anyone who is offended by those remarks is free to respond in public or to A&E who carries the program. And, A&E is free to respond in any method they feel appropriate. To have it any other way… now THAT would be un-American!

    However, what completely baffles me is that this show is so grounded in religious Christian beliefs (which they often share on air!), why are they surprised when the family's patriarch shares those beliefs off camera? You mean, he's really who he appears to be on the show? How unique!

    What surprises me even more is that the numbers don't add up for A&E… The show has 9,000,000 viewers. Are you telling me that they had more than 9,000,000 complaints? Seems A&E are the real losers here (in more ways than one). The Robertsons will be fine. They were rich BEFORE the show and they will be RICH after the show. A&E, on the other hand, is likely to lose one of their biggest money-makers. And, for the record, A&E's boss has stated that it was the statement that equated homosexuality to bestiality that was “over the line”.

    I read the complete statement by Phil Robertson and that comment was taken completely out of context. He wasn't comparing them to each other… he was only stating that they were actions frowned upon in the Bible… a list. It would be saying that the bible frowns upon stealing and murder. It is not saying they are equal, only that they are both included on the list of things not to do.

  • CQQL33

    I see nothing in any of his beliefs that should offend anyone. He is not preaching he is just commenting on what he believes in…. Nothing he said is outrageous in any way. I subscribe to most everything he has been quoted as saying. Nothing he said should be considered derogatory to anyone, it is he belief and he has a right to state it, especially when he was asked directly to do so. If you were being interviewed by a reporter would you lie or would you tell the truth as you know it ? We have some people that have been elected into our government that do not always tell the truth, how does that work for you ?

  • Big Dick McGee

    The sun in the meadow is billowy warm, the stag in the forest runs free.

  • BamaRulz

    I totally agree that A&E can hire and fire anyone for any reason they choose. What I find unbelievable is how many people in this country believe it is Ok for a man to have sex with a man or woman with a woman. If you don't believe in the Bible, then fine.
    I cannot believe anyone that believes in the Bible and claims to be a christian is ok with homosexuality. God created woman for man. The Bible clearly mentions that marriage is between a man and a woman. Any other sexual act other than with your wife or husband is sinful.
    Phil never bashed gays. He said what is in the Bible. And concerning blacks, he said he worked with blacks, and never saw them mistreated and they were happy. He never said blacks were not mistreated. He simply said that he never witnessed it.

  • Kackie

    He was stating what he believed, I thought that was what the fundimentals of our country were built on. I an not gay, I am not ani-gay, I have friends that are gay, I din't think what he said warrent suspending him. I think the GLAAD needs to grow a thicker skin, not everyone is going to accept gay people. Suspending Phil did a lot of harm to them. I don't have any respect for any organization or station that suspends any person because he stated his feelings. Maybe that's the problem with our country, we are to frightened to state our feeling because we might offend someone. So sad.

  • boomer

    White trash ois right anad that's the description of the clowns that watch that trash. The bearded idiot is nothing but a redneck P.O.S along with his clan, They belong back in the cotton fields no blacks and no gays for them to bash. You have to know that he is a racist from childhood.

    • David Caskey

      I am glad you are not bigoted and prejudiced. That would be horrible.

  • Rachelle Maison Zebro

    And just what is your meaning of “tell-it-like-it-is hunters” is that also slanderous, WHAT IS YOUR DEFFINATION OF TELL-IT-LIKE-IT-IS-HUNTERS? do you have a problem with people that speak there mind, or “quote” the bible, sorry hate me, love me, slaughter me, I am with PHIL ROBERTSON. If you are going to write a story about Phil Robertson please by all means use your manors, I am sure he has a few years on you, so therefore you should be addressing him as Mr. Robertson Sir.

  • snookie

    I think Phil has a Right to his own opinion unless they took out freedom of speech is his first amendment rights. It says in the Bible

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10

    English Standard Version (ESV)

    9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous[a] will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[b] 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

    Footnotes:

    1 Corinthians 6:9 Or wrongdoers

    1 Corinthians 6:9 The two Greek terms translated by this phrase refer to the passive and active partners in consensual homosexual acts

    immoral people sinners, Wont inherit the kingdom Of God that's all. It's they're choice. Move on Phil.

    • JagNative

      uhh, to be fair, you shouldn't leave out verse 11

      And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

      Don't forget there's always a Way to Truth and Life. ;^)

  • Clint Watters

    A partial boycott may be in order. I'm going to watch duck dynasty but I will not watch any other program on the A&E channel till Phil gets his job back. If an actor repeats the truth as stated in the bible no mater the contract of this perverted generation then public pressure needs to be applied on a massive scale across the country. As well A new policy should be installed IN WRITING that protects actors when they are promoting there movie, movie series, or TV PROGRAM that states if A Christian states there belief in the truth of the word of GOD there will be no reprisal, punishment or sanction. Let the chips fall where they may. Phil's popularity will only grow because of the truth of the word of GOD. Phil hates the sin not the sinner. like any good Christian should.

  • snooky

    Phil has a right to be heard and have his own opinion. read corinthins 9 verse 10

  • hunter woman

    Go Phil…….that's ok you have done nothing wrong…because with the Bible nothing is untrue or wrong….God is Great!

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      How about Jack And The Beanstalk??….Jack is Great!

      • hunter women

        That's sad…you compare God with Jack a fantasy character.

  • wesmorgan1

    Robertson's commentary on homosexuality are drawing the bulk of public and media attention, but I'm surprised that so few are calling him out for his implication that anyone who isn't a Christian is basically at the same level as are Nazis. He also served up a ladleful of anti-Muslim bigotry, not to mention insulting a fairly large chunk of Japanese history and culture by including Shintoism (whose practices date back to 600 years before the birth of Christ) in his “godless” list alongside Nazism and Communism.

    But, of course, he isn't judging ANYONE…….riiiiiiiiight.

    • David Caskey

      So you don't like the Pope. If you asked the Pope the same questions, you would get basically the same answers.

  • snooky

    He just shot his mouth off huh.

    • hunter woman

      Hey snooky…whats wrong with these people?

      • snooky

        people like to judge A&E likes to throw people off the network for speaking their mind.

  • Jim Collins

    The truth of all of this is it’s an opinion like the asses
    we are or sit on, we all are or have one. This is mine!

    When we all really overlook the fact religious or otherwise
    it’s just another step in the direction of the elimination of the human species.
    When in fact we live on a small blue marble floating in space.

    Where we hate and destroy one another through and by these opinions.

    We spend our time lingering on what we think is right
    instead of doing what’s right.

    Thousands are dying daily of starvation, murder and war,
    because of such different opinions.

    When in fact if we weren’t as self-centered as too what we
    think and would act on one simple answer.

    LOVE of life and not just human, family, friends, humanity our
    planet.

    Instead we choose Love of money, power, and I’m right and you’re
    wrong!

    Whom do we blame when we strive so hard to destroy ourselves?

    Speak your opinion if it can make a difference if not think
    to keep it to yourself for the benefit of all.

    Because in the end the universe will decide!

    We have the chance to exist because something or someone in
    an opinion decided for us.

  • Sunny

    They are law abiding, hard working folks that made it big. They have strong religious beliefs, and EVERY time they sit down and break bread they pray because they believe and appreciate all they have. Are you blind? What can't you understand about not respecting them and their beliefs. They don't put this on just for you to watch on t.v., they obviously live their lives like this. I don't feel like he crossed any line that anyone should object to. Seriously folks, things have been taken too far.

  • melissa murphy

    I just read this article about Phil's quotes from the magazine n I saw nothing wrong with what Phil said he simply was expressing his values n beliefs. he didn't talk bad about blacks either just that he has no problem with em n he's worked right along side em. he DID NOT bash gays..he simply stated his opinion n u all twisted it all around on him when the public got involved n taking a stand for Phil. look what Miley Cyrus did n what Oprah said n all that's okay with u all if anyone should b banned it's them. BRING BACK PHIL OR THE REST OF THE FAMILY RESIGN!!!!!!!!!!!

    • hunter woman

      I totally agree spooky….Freedom of Speech!!!!!!

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      Sometimes when you are under “contract” you may not be allowed as per contract to express your views like he did.

      • David Caskey

        And sometime you can get sued for restriction of speech and lose a bunch of money.

        • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

          Not sure that has ever happened. Please give me an example.

  • happy gagnon

    what's the matter you don't like to hear the truth. Did god tell Noah collect two animals off the same sex NO he didn't. Did god create eve & eve or Adam & Adam NO. so someone tells you what's wrong and you condemn them that's what's wrong with this country . I will watch Duck Dynasty all day with Phil Roberson . If the network drops Phil then there stupid.

  • Nana Oakley

    Freedom of speech…………….there is no right giving us freedom from getting our feelings hurt. Phil is exactly right about who's in charge and it is God the Creator and He alone will judge. God clearly blesses the Robertsons for their “lifestyle”.

  • Gary

    I'm a college educated professional and consider myself a moderate. I don't see anything wrong with his comments, and, as for the race thing, I'm 60 and have worked alongside blacks in rural communities and never heard them gripe like I hear white liberals gripe today.

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      Really Gary, you haven't heard Conservatives constantly gripe for the last several years?

    • Sunny

      Get a life folks. You love the entertainment and watching them. You love watching the whole family and appreciate the love they show for each other and their beliefs, then all of a sudden a negative comment is made and everyone wants to jump on the band wagon. Seriously, grow up and face reality.

  • Bob

    If you owned your own business and one of your employees was interviewed in a national publication, and was commonly known as an employee of yours, you too would be a little vested in what was said. If this employee enhanced your image based on your company's standards you would likely be thrilled at the positive light cast on your company… however if something was said that was not only incredibly controversial to the public but also in complete opposition to your company's views and public image you would be upset and would likely fire that employee. That is just a fact. It happens frequently and on a much lesser scale. People that are not as publicly known and attached to a corporation as Mr. Robertson get fired for making public commentary that their company deems inappropriate. As a working adult most understand they can't publicly go against their companies standards and not expect repercussions. Would it be okay for a christian organization to let go a gay person for publicly saying they were gay? That happened. A couple weeks ago a gay teacher was fired from a catholic school for getting married. His employers knew he was gay, had attended functions with him and his partner, and only decided to fire him after he made it public. Go look in the comment section of that article. Most everyone is in support of the church… because hey… the guy was working in a place that doesn't agree with his viewpoint and he decided to make a public declaration and it got him fired. Both circumstances involve a man being let go from his employer for doing something publicly that went against their beliefs.

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      then I guess you feel the firing was justified?

      • Freedom for ALL

        I do hope you are being sarcastic. All of them should be givena RAISE and PRAISE for standing up for what they truly believe and not backing down … A&E will end up loosing if they take Phil Robertson off the show or cancel it. My point is that everyone else seems to be free to express their options and beliefs EXCEPT CHRISTIANS. It's about time Christians stand up and don't back down.

        • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

          Then you feel A&E should “be given PRAISE for standing up for what the truly believe and not backing down”?

        • Bob

          Did you even read what I posted? At all?…. it clearly showed that Christian organizations do the same thing… the only difference was no one really acted surprised or like it was wrong. Reading comprehension…. good God.

    • Freedom for ALL

      Everything on A&E is controversial. If it is one of the top rated shows, then obviously people like it, even with Jesus included. Why is Christianity being singled out? I'm personally offended by the loose use of language and sexual indiscretions that A&E seems to glorify.

      It would be a huge mistake for A&E to take Duck Dynsasty off the air at this point. It's like having a GREAT Quarterback or football player like Teebow and NOT hiring them for your team because you don't agree with their PERSONAL BELIEFS. A&E hired them, knowing who they are and what they stand for…is it really worth loosing ALL those viewers because you have a disagreement of beliefs. There is a CASIMIC difference between acceptance and approval. Isnt what A&E doing the same thing…they are rebuking someone who has different beliefs? Why do homosexuals, drugs dealers, atheists, agnostics, Muslims, Wiccans and so on get to dictate to Christians? Have Christians become the Jews of Hilters time? It appears more and more to be so.

      • Bob

        Yes, Christians are so oppressed… like…. think of all the cities and neighborhoods in the US that they can't safely walk down without fear of getting murdered for their beliefs. Think of all the state's that they are denied visiting rights with their life partners for simply being Christian, or how the military could kick them out for openly admitting to being Christian….. you're also right that the government doesn't at all cater to Christians…. abstinence only education, absence of sexual health education in schools, limited reproductive health services availability, denial of life partners right right to marry each other… all of those things along with many others were instituted by atheists…. no… every step of the way what has kept civil rights back is the catering of the government to Christians. Women voting and interracial marriage were also fought against tooth and nail by the Christian organizations off their time and their stronghold on the us government is what had historically always delayed every civil rights advance in the last 100 years. Get a grip. The majority of Americans are Christian, you're not a persecuted group but you sure have done most of the persecuting. Nazi's, by the way, were largely Christian, making your claim even more ridiculous than it was before.

    • David Caskey

      What did he say that was wrong? We was asked a question and gave a reasonable answer.

  • snooky

    We know. that's what A&E said it goes against their beliefs.

  • Freedom for ALL

    It's interesting tome how EVERY people group can say and do what they want EXCEPT CHRISTIANS. This country was founded and based on Christian principals and now THAT FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS BEING RETRACTED THROUGHOUT OUR COUNTRY. Mr, Robertson was quoting the Bible. It's what HE BELIEVES. We have shows about pornography, drug users and dealers, witchcraft, Zombies, Vampires, the Underworld, Super Heroes turning from good to evil and NO ONE says anything. A MAN STANDS UP FOR WHAT HE BELIEVES (FINALLY) and he his SHUT OUT.

    PEOPLE doesn't Freedom of Speech mean for EVERYONE?!

    • Guest

      Yes but it's their network.

      • Freedom for ALL

        But it's EVERYONES CONSTITUTION.

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      read the contract he signed

      • David Caskey

        Read the balance sheet and the fact that they have never encountered a real man and he ain't going to apologize or back down. Good by A&E.

  • Rejoyce

    We are bon of ‘man'…That's how we get an ‘earth suit'. We have the choice to accept the gift of Jesus Christ to be “born again” [of the spirit' ] and return to God's original plan for us.
    We are to hate the sin and LOVE the sinner! The Bible is clear as to what is sin and what is “the fruit of the spirit”. This is only accomplished by putting our “I” under the headship of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit. It is a wrestling match within ourselves as we confront the error of our ways.
    Christ said, [ when coming upon a group surrounding a woman caught in the sin of adultery -and ready to stone her to death ] “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”. The group disbanded and left the scene. He then said to the woman, “You are forgiven. Go and sin no more.”
    It's a choice each has to make for him or her self..heaven or …………….
    hell [separation from our creator].

    • ddyo@wildblue.netjake

      I agree with Jesus as I know lots of women who have committed adultery and they are very nice people

        What no men?

  • David Michaels

    Everybody is entitled to their opinions, but some opinions are better left unsaid. His words are bigoted and hateful. I love the show, but he's really crossed a line. This country is not a theocracy. He wants everyone to believe as he believes and that is the definition of intolerance.

  • D. Anastasia

    Phil has a right to his opinion and so does everyone else INCLUDING A&E. He doesnt just represent himself and the family business, he represents A&E as well, by choice.

  • Robert Wynn

    Whats the problem 99 percent agree with robertson.while 1 percent agree with the gays. Aand E is really screwing up on this one .more and more liberal stupity

  • William Pendleton

    This isn't about freedom of speech. He has freedom of speech. No one arrested him for what he said. People want him to have freedom of consequence for his speech. No one has that. If you go into you boss and tell him he's an idiot, you will get fired. You can say it but you will suffer the consequences. If you want to change the consequences, you can do that. Contact A & E and get them to change their minds.

  • steve

    who gives a flying duck, anyone that would waste their time watching these fools get rich are nuts. Find something else to do like paint rocks or watch it snow ..

  • bob

    heck; Phil for President! Quack on THAT Glaad man….(snicker)

  • crash

    If people don't believe in the Bible and GOD they can't see no sin in what they do. Phil Robertson did not say on his own that this was sin, GOD did. And God will have the last word. People of GOD believers should be grateful for what Phil stands for.

  • aint no yuppie girl

    Ok some people took me WAY out of context. So straight and to the point: GQ asked Phil what was considered a sin. he stated (paraphrasing of course not an exact quote.) Lets start with homosexuality and stem out from there. Then in ascending order adding adultery, beastality,….and ended with terrorist. He quoted the bible starting with the least (but still sinful) thing homosexuality and ended with the worst he wasn't clumping them together. Everyone is just so sensitive. He didn't take any of your rights away, he didn't hurt you physically. But you are taking his rights away. If You people don't want a Christian answer do not ask them a religious question. especially if they are a preacher of that religion. Phil has done nothing any of us haven't done a time or two.

  • Robert James

    Phil Robertson isn't the nut here, it's the pro-gay/libnut commi minions that obviously don't believe in Freedom of Speech. This is what's called communism folks, and we are on the short road to it. When a person cannot answer a question they are ask honestly, you might as well tear up the Constitution. In this case, turn the channel if you don't like what the man said. I feel the same way Phil does, and I dare anyone to say anything about it.
    Typical liberal demented thinking: If you don't believe what I do then your wrong, but I If don't believe in what you believe then you're also wrong.
    More liberal twisted thinking: If I don't like guns then no one should own one which on all levels is lib-thought and is diametrically opposed to a Conservative–If I don't want to own one, I will not buy one. Lib-com–I don't believe in hunting, therefore no one should be allowed to hunt. Conservative–If I don't want to hunt I won't.
    Freedom of speech in the mind of a lib-com if you agree 100% with what they say and believe. Otherwise, you're every nasty name in the book. Well, I have news for you lib coms out there, YOU WILL LOSE! In fact, you have already lost,,,,you just don't know it yet.

  • glennelson32

    Why is it that I could go on national TV and say that I absolutely hate Christians and I wont be judged, but if I went and said in a totally respectable way that I do not agree with gays, abortionists, or anything else that Phil said he disagreed with I would be ridiculed? The problem the people have with Phil is that he stands for what he believes, he isn't afraid to show what he believes, and doesn't care what people do or say to make him think differently. America was founded on freedom of speech and religion and I can not see how the people of this country can stand by and watch it be taken away from them, this whole situation with Phil Robertson is just a start…I'm glad that he didn't give in to what everyone else told him to and took a stand.

  • saltylife

    The best quote from him is the last one on reality TV….forward we move…

  • Laura from Maine

    He has a reality tv show and lets millions of viewers into his home and business as a matter of course. His comments were/are offensive to me, and I'm unlikely to watch the show anymore. That's my right. I'm sure A & E prefers that their viewers aren't offended. That's their right. He spoke his mind. That has consequences when you live in the public eye. A & E has a right to fire him if they want to. That's their right.

  • Robert James

    I say boycott A&E. In fact email them first and tell them “I am offended that you are taking Phil of the show”. Then tell them you are boycotting them.

  • croastbeast

    To every knee jerk imbecile who doesnt understand why this happens, or objects to it as a “violation of his rights”, you really need to take a step back and look at reality.

    He *HAS* the freedom of speech. He's more than welcome to hate gays, call them names, be bigoted, whatever he legally wants. He STILL CAN do that!

    A&E has the *RIGHT* to fire him for that. They have every right to say they dont like his viewpoint, and wont promote it, exactly as he does.

    Is that so hard to understand?

  • salltte2

    Who cares what he says. We are forced to hear everyday the crap that the Gays demand because it's there right. Their right to freedom of speech. We are forced to listen to their demands! Where is Mr. Robertson's right to freedom of speech? Just like the Gays have rights well so does Mr. Robertson and shame on A&E running scared on publicity. They should fire that person for suspending the show. They have no business being in that position if they can't handle a little heat. They should be arguing the case for A&E. Unbelievable!

  • My Opinion

    If the kids on TV can disrespect their parents, that's okay.. My daughter can watch on TV two men lying in bed talking about having a baby, that's okay.. A woman making love to another woman on TV that's okay.. But when someone has a different opinion about it, that's not okay…

  • salltte2

    I don't even care for the show but this time A&E went to far by CNX this show because this man stated his opinion on Gays. Yet every day we are forced to listen to the demands of gay people. What happened to people's rights to freedom of speech without being stoned to death. I don't think he really cares anyway, he has made his money over and over with his invention of the duck callers or whatever you call those things.

  • Bama man

    I don't care for the “Duck Dynasty”program but I do agree with his statement about gay's & God!

    A&E suspended Phil for his comments and beliefs. Why have they NOT suspended the GAY Dual from STORAGE WARS that are Spouting about their gay ways & beliefs. OH I forgot that A&E claims to be 100% behind the LGBT minority that wants something that others do not have. Discrimination at it's best. I will no longer watch A&E and will l not buy from their sponsors and I will tell their sponsors why. They seem to forget that most of their viewers are NOT LGBT. Phil you are right and you are standing your ground. Proud of You.

  • dennis malloy

    BEST show on TV!! If I have to watch all that gay crap now days, why cant I watch someone disagrreing with it

  • Tired of the hypocrits

    So now a video surfaces of Phil in church preaching his belief of the bible, which he was invited there by that church. There's nothing wrong with what he says, he is in a church surrounded by the congregate of that church who wants to hear what he has to say. So how is it the Left Wing of the Gay Community can dress up as a large penis and parade themselves down the public streets of our cities in the “Gay Day Parade” and not think some may find that offensive? Out of those two scenarios who is really violating who? The man in his own church, or the man dressed as a penis on a public street. Hmm, I would think the gay community may want to rethink that position.

    What he said isn't so much the issue here, it's more about how he did it. Admit it at one point or another everyone has judged someone for something they've done or how they look. Everyone just does it behind closed doors or for the average person it doesn't end up in print. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, he's allowed to say what he wants about whom he wants. Sure it wasn't the nicest things but were all guilty of at the least thinking nasty mean things about other people. Give the guy a break, no one berates you over you opinions.

  • Mary Adkins

    All sorts of things are on TV that are offensive to many. Usually we are told “change the channel or turn the TV off.” Those who are offended by the Robertsons should do the same. Why does everything come down to a pissing match? Everyone has to be tolerant when it comes to one anothers beliefs until someone screams foul. This political correct crap pisses me off. If you don't like it change the channel or go screw your sexual partner. GET OVER IT FOLKS! All humans are free thinkers, so is that the next thing we are going to attack?

    Perhaps if these people were to bathe and shave a new sensibilty might dawn on them. This man claims to be godly, interesting. If God didn't want gay men and women there wouldn't be any. To question that is to call your god impotent and irrelevant.

    The solution to the Duck dynasty controversy is for A&E to come out and say that they do not agree with the cast member of Duck Dynasty. And any comments made by him are his own express opinions and not that of the A&E network. I don't like what he says mainly because it sounds very preachy, but I do think he is entitled to his opinion. Gays have had worse slurs thrown at them and they will survive regardless of what this individual says. All he is saying is that homosexuality is not normal and is the result of society's behavior and acceptance of it. Get Real old man!!!

  • Kansas Boy

    Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, but nothing was said about the executives at A&E. They probably never heard of Voltaire either, who said, “I do not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.” They seem pretty intolerant themselves.

    I agree with phil and believe that he never meant to offend anyone he was just in his own way trying to warn people that live that lifestyle that you are along with the human race that have not been born again by the grace of God under the wraft of God. The bible says that the human race is judged already . God sent his son to suffer and die on the cross ,shed his own blood to redeem man from his fallen state of sin to make him righteous through the shed blood of Christ. Repeant and believe the good news of the gospel. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever would believe on him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    On growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights Era:

    “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black
    person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for
    the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because
    we’re white trash. We’re going across the field … They’re singing and
    happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you
    what: These doggone white people’ — not a word! … Pre-entitlement,
    pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy;
    no one was singing the blues.”

    Is he saying there was no descrimination and the people didn't have problems? No. He said in the place I lived and the people he met they were like this. He didn't talk about LA or New York City. Pre-Civil Rights Era set the time this occurred. He's not saying I wish civil rights were revoked. NOTICE he also didn't say “I didn't want to work for them”.

    It seems this Phil Robertson guy forgot that inconvenient little quote in the bible, “it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the gates of heaven.” And have you seen what he and his family make on their “reality” show, and from licensing and endorsements? Cha-ching! Suddenly Jesus and his teachings aren't so important when it comes to his own almighty dollar! Religion is only good when it's convenient for them to condemn others…certainly not when it means they would actually have to give up money, heavens no! And he also equated gays with terrorists…but isn't someone who drives a 5,000 lb. SUV the actual ” terrorist” – on the environment and ecology…on God's creation…when he could easily drive a little hybrid or at least a small car, or take the bus (like lots of regular people have to – including the gays and blacks he disparages so much and wants to have no rights) or he could walk so he would minimize damaging God's creation. But of course not…religion is only for them to judge and condemn others… never for them to actually have to miss out on anything. And one last thing…you know how it's always those right-wing, Republican, fundamentalist Christian types that are found having sex with men in public bathrooms…well, since Phil has such an obsession and fascination with men's anuses, I'd bet money he's had sex with men himself. Otherwise he wouldn't care so much. And that's his real reason for speaking out like this, he's fighting something within himself! It's just Psychology 101…”methinks he doth protest too much!”

    If you can get fired for posting something offensive to some on a facebook page – regardless of your “right to free speech” – then why should this guy “post” his offensive to some opinions in a magazine and not get fired? Really – time to treat “celebrities” the same as regular folk.

  • undardawg

    I read that Phil Robertson is related to televangelist “Pat” Robinson. Guess the family roots run deep there………………

    I find it highly disturbing that Pat Robertson, someone who has many devout followers of “Christian faith” has been dishing out his own unique brand of marriage guidance advice again, this time telling the wife of a cheating husband to get over her man’s infidelity and start doing more to ensure he doesn’t have reason to wander. Pat Robertson says unkempt women are the cause of failed marriages.

     

    He advised a viewer to stop focusing on her husband cheating because that is the ‘tendency of man.

     

    He also suggested it wasn't the man's fault as modern society is filled with temptations.

     

    The wife was told ‘to make a home so wonderful that he doesn't want to wander'.

     

    ‘Thank God that you have a marriage that is together and that you live in America and good things are happening,’ said Robertson.

     

    All I can say to this is …………………..WOW

     

    Since establishing the Christian Broadcasting Network in 1960, Pat Robertson has been no stranger to controversy.

     

    In 1976 he predicted the end of the world was coming in October or November 1982. In a May 1980 broadcast of ‘The 700 Club’ he stated, ‘I guarantee you by the end of 1982 there is going to be a judgment on the world.’

     

    After September 11, 2001, Robertson discussed the terror attacks with Jerry Falwell, who said that ‘the ACLU has to take a lot of blame for this’ in addition to ‘the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays, and the lesbians [who have] helped [the terror attacks of September 11th] happen.’ Robertson replied, ‘I totally concur.’

     

    After Hurricane Katrina killed 1,836 people in 2005, Robertson implied the storm was God's punishment in response to America's abortion policy. He also suggested that September 11 and the disaster in New Orleans ‘could… be connected in some way’.

     

    In 2006 after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had a stroke, Robertson suggested it was an act of God.

     

    On November 9, 2009, Robertson described Islam is ‘a violent political system bent on the overthrow of the governments of the world and world domination.’

     

    After the 2010 Haiti earthquake Robertson indirectly attributed it to the people being ‘cursed’ as a consequence of Haiti's founders having sworn a ‘pact to the Devil’ in order to liberate themselves from their French slave owners.

  • Michael M

    I don't see how how the first thing can be seen as racist, apparently where he lived Black people were't treated badly. I'm skeptical about that but it's possible, or he just never witnessed it. Either way he's just stating his observations, he's not saying this was the case on every city.

    About the societies without Jesus thing, he needs to study history a little more. The U.S. has had its fair share of things we've done wrong, maybe not on the level of Germany but we're not perfect.

    Jesus wouldn't have kept Hitler from doing what he did, he had other motivations that would have negated that. And there's nothing about the Shinto religion that would cause Japan to do what they did at Pearl Harbor. They were fighting a war and Jesus or no Jesus, they would do what it took to win, and Jesus didn't keep us from retaliating.

If it werent for republicans there would have never been a civil rights movement. The democrats phillibustered the civil rights act in the 50's and tried again in '64. it passed because of conservatives…the true champions of freedom. but lets listen to the filthy left scream about raising the minimum wage…which creates zero jobs and in fact causes job loss. lets listen to the filthy left cheerlead blacks into believing they should drop out of school, be promiscuous, develope a drug and alcohol habit, have multiple children out of wedlock, blame everyone for their problems, be discontent, disobey their parents and every other adult in their life, live for themselves and then blame republicans that they have no job skills or hope of advancement. now they are primed and ready for….Government handouts!! Yea!! thank you filthy liberals, you do so much for America. liberalism is treason.

    If you want to know what the Bible is about then please….read it! It is about God being the Judge over His creation and like ANY earthly judge there are many things that are not tolerated.

    Bailey do you know the definition of racist a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another. gay is not a race. Pull your head out. And I'm not a racist I'm prejudice I hate everyone equally. If you earn my trust and my friendship it's for life. So Im not racist I didn't like black white yellow red or anything mix of human that is gay. It's called being prejudice and yes I am but guess what no law agenst that it's a free country. But remember Muslims are prejudice toward Christian guys towards straight. We were here first. So don't try to change us they need to adapt. Is our opinions about gay so important that they are not happy Till everyone loves them. Sorry to disappoint never happen. It's even in my trust if any relative of mine goes to the gay side they are cut out. But mixed race husband and wife male and female. I'm cool so again get it straight I'm not racist.

  • Liberal Christian Conservative

    Crazy? He's right on target.

  • Randy Davenport

    At first, I was taken aback about what Phil said about the blacks that lived around him. After thinking about it, I saw it as him telling of his personal experiences. 60+He said he grew up poor, so did his family even have a TV? years ago, we did not have cable tv, internet and limited TV coverage. He was talking about what he say in his own little piece of America of that time. I can relate. I was born in the rural NC mountains in the early 1960's. I grew up near the Cherokee Indian Reservation I had many Cherokee's and blacks as friends growing up. I did not hear about racism or even what it was until I went off to College. My high school had several homosexual teens that were never bullied and some were my closest friends. I am learning that we do not need to view history by or 21st century lens.

  • alphabadgirl

    Jesus preached love’ compassion, mercy, understanding and forgiveness, nothing in the bible speaks of that. A book written 60 to 100 years after Jesus’ death. If Jesus said love thy neighbor like your brother what do you think that means? Compassion, mercy , helping is the foundation and yet all religions seem to forget this. God is unconditional love, what does that mean to you because unconditional does not mean only if you are straight, christian etc, it means just that unconditional. I do not know what you have been taught or why, but my God is not vengeful, not selective, not full of hate and persecution. My brother Jesus taught all of us the simple fundamentals of love yet we fall short many times along the way. God created gays, just the way they are for a purpose, and one day you will lead that life, everyone will be gay, black, white, poor, broke etc. You are here for soul growth. No one is persecuted but by themselves, YOU will judge your lives and growth and decide how you did and whether you need to grow more. And Jesus didn't die for YOUR sins, he was full filling his life's journey and his growth, he lived 30 lives prior, do not believe me even your precious bible states this. As will you and I. How I wish I could be there to seat all those faces as you realize and learn you wrote and planned your life and the judgement you get is from yourselves. I suspect more lives will be planned to undo the hate you've caused. Jesus said Love, it's plain and simple.

    • JagNative

      You need a new Bible because that's a bunch of hooey.

      ” If Jesus said love thy neighbor like your brother” incorrect-as yourself.

      “God is not vengeful” Vengence is mine, I will repay says the Lord

      “And Jesus didn't die for YOUR sins” ‘He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

    I think that most people are getting the first amendment right to free speech confused with what happened to Mr. Robertson. His free speech was not impeded or suspended as he clearly can say, and did say, what he wanted without facing criminal charges or being imprisoned for saying them. However, free speech comes with the potential for backlash because once said, people can react in a way that effects others financially. Simply put, Robertson made a comment which offended members of our society, and those members made Robertson's employers aware of their anger and potential for a negative financial impact thus causing them to suspend him. That is the free market at work, not the taking away of free speech.

    • ChicagoJohn

      First off, boycotts aren't a matter of the free market. Boycotts are a matter of Facism; trying to force your opinion onto others.
      No one is forcing you to watch Phil… and that's not what the problem is. If you were truly taking part in the free market, you would just not watch it.
      But that isn't what you want to do.
      You want to silence Phil. Yes? Otherwise, you wouldn't be threatening advertisers, and try to get him taken off of the air.

    • JagNative

      “They will know you by the fruit you bear”
      So, no, Nazis were not Christian.
      In fact by the end of the war there were less than 20% identified as Christian byt the end of the war.
      by the way, I get the plebian part (how appropiate), I can only assume 12 is your age…

      • Plebian12

        So 20% means they were not Christian?

        The USA is supposed to be a Christian nation. 62% affilate with a church, Between 35-40% actually go to church or practice somehow…at least once per year. 25% are Catholic which Pope Francis appears to be pushing a more gay tolerant agenda.

        So how many people are like Phil?? Tons of his supporters probably don't even attend service. They just share his ascrpitive values which do not seem very Christ-like.

        So you think Christ would condemn they gays?? Really what would he do? Would he wash their feet with his hair like Pope Francis just did to dozens of AIDS patients recently? now thats being a Christian.

        So yeah Christianity was a very salient feature in NAZI Germany. The lack of belief was certainly not the cause of the war as Robertson asserted. on the contrary has been used to justify war. Disagreed? Just think about the Crusades for gosh sakes.

    I'm not seeing the craziness.

    Paraphrasing:

    Quote 1: I never saw blacks any further down than whites. We were all in the same boat. They were the type of people that had rich enough personalities that they could be happy even doing menial labor (anyone of good humor who has worked a minimum wage job knows how rare this is to find).

    Quote 2: I based my voting on the type of city those people originated from. Did I want to vote for the guy whose city hosted the Olympics, or do I want to go with the guy who is a product of a city overrun with gangs and leading the country in no way other than murder rate?

    Quote 3: Let God sort them out. Not our place to judge.

    The last two are pretty self explanatory.

      Quote 1: Even though Phil was ‘white trash’ as he said, he could still go to the lunch counter, he didn't have to sit in the balcony at the movies, he didn't have to go to the back door for take out food, he could shop on any floor of a department store and wasn't relegated to the basement and he didn't have to drink from just certain water fountains. I'm white and grew up in the fifties in the south and I personally saw all of this and more. Phil was not in the same boat with the blacks, he was just poor. Even though I saw this I never saw any kind of physical mistreatment or any cross burnings or church burnings or anyone in a white robe. I'm not denying it, I, like Phil, just never saw it and I grew up in the middle of it.

    Again, someone who has little real knowledge of a subject spouts off. Most of us encounter this in daily life and so are not really shocked. If my crazy uncle was interviewed by GQ he'd provide even more entertaining quotes. Of course, the Duck dude is a celebrity and what he says somehow is more meaningful than the rest of us uninformed experts. By the way, even thought the official Nazi creed discouraged religion, other than Judiasm, religion was not outlawed in Nazi Germany. Well into Hitler's reign, 95% of Germans considered themselves either Protestant or Catholic. Only the true radicals in the party gave up religion entirely and were in the vast minority. As for human history, infighting between Catholics and Protestants (both Christain according to most scholars), has resulted in many losses of life. The Christain atrocities against Islam during the Crusades are well documented. But again, facts don't matter here, the issue is anyone can freely spout off in America, but should not be surprised when those who disagree also spout off. As far as A&E, seems like employers are also free to take adverse action against employees who displease them. That's what freedom is about – allows you to do a lot of stuff, even if it's stupid.

    The homosexual community is amazed humans are tired of their BS? is it not amazing that a small group of sick individuals cry and whine about humans finding their behavior disgusting?
    My dog doesn't do the disgusting things these animals do.
    I hope the backlash increases and they get to experience some real beat downs.
    Maybe its time for the Gay Knockout Game.

    “I don't think this is about the first admendment”., says GLAAD leader.That's because your the intolerant ones. Anytime you have to face the truth, and anytime someone is critical of the unfairness of your position, you yell racism, or anti-gay boo-hoo's. You cry wolf too much, LGBT. There is nothing wrong with being a White Person or a Straight person, that too racist and homophobic for you? I marched for Civil Rights, and got news for you, Black people weren't the only ones marching. About time the Majority pulls your “rights”, if all your going to be is ungrateful and nasty, who then try to take away the rights of others, especially free speech. Go back in the safe closet you don't like other's freedom.

    Crazy? Because you say so? GLADD is crazy…really crazy. Who says? Normal Americans.

      They are also mean and hateful.

  • BobbiM

    I gotta hand it to Phil. I'm somewhat more direct in condemning homosexuality. It IS sin whether or not the sodomites like the idea, and there is no way to condone or support them any more than one can condone or support any other sin without being counted guilty of the same thing.

  • JFM

    His statement of “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job”. How can that statement be misconstrued to mean he hates Gays? He says God is the final judge not him. Isn't this what GLAAD wants? Not to be judge-mental.

    • TRJ

      I agree with you JFM, I am gay and I did not find what he said offensive personally, but I can only speak for myself. Everyone has different beliefs, and a right to believe them, lets all just hope we can share the same space and be civil. treat people how you want to be treated, is how I live my life, and so far it has done well for me.

    My goodness … it's no wonder America is the but of all jokes among the other nations of the world.

    It wasn't Phil who said this (so why doesn't the homosexual community get upset with the author of these words):

    “Don’t you know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male
    prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, your were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” I Cor. 6:9-11.

    If the guy wants to rant, fine, but write a book, don't do this on tv. I don't like the gays or anything they stand for, but there's a time and a place for everything and his timing was off on this one. I refuse to watch the show because it isn't interesting; it has nothing to offer in the form of intelligent tv. Just shows what dumba$$, low iq people will watch to stay amused.

  • clutchbang

    And, you dumba$$es can't deny it either by the way you stray from the article and go straight for the politics. There are leaders and there are followers, and you dumba$$es really need someone to lead you through life by the comments I see here. Now, that's entertainment for ya.

    Next time Richard Dawkins says religious people are delusional or other unflattering adjectives, let's pull his books from the shelves.
    Why, because he might just influence people to be intolerant of religious people.
    If you want to silence people who think differently, we better start burning books on both sides.

    • http://www.fileden.com/files/2011/11/2/3218270/thanksjesus.jpg ReligionIsToxicToTheMind

      There are no “sides'. Just reality. Dawkins dispels crazy religious claims with scientific explanations and explains how religion is a social meme which has no legitimate background.

      • LOL, Dawkins is crazy. He couldn't explain shoelaces.

    • Testicules

      Well, you are not supposed to actually read the quotes, think for yourself and form your own opinion.

      The liberal media is saying that whatever he said was “bad”, so, you are just supposed to parrot that.

  • jt85222

    Whats total BS is that the maybe 5% gay community in America can have parades, tv shows, and push “acceptance” down our throats demanding equal rights. Although if one disagrees with them we are the ones they want to take away our rights that they are screaming to have. Bit of a double standard? Personally I don't care who's gay but I do have a problem with ppl trying to shut me up. A&E made a huge mistake but one I'm glad (no pun intended) they made. I think it has woke up a lot of Americans that have been sleeping while our rights and what our founding fathers intended our country to be based on have been taken away or silenced. I stand with the Robertson's and hope they find a new home who doesn't bow down to a tiny community who is so hypocritical.

  • gc

    I'm going to make this simple for those young folks out there. Politician=liar. Stop the argument and go and live a happy life. Number two: Many people have given their lives so that we can have a thing called freedom of speech. If you ask a person what he believes is a sin you should respect his answer. Period. This does not mean you have to watch his show or buy his products. But you MUST let people speak. Or one day the powers that be may come to silence you. Open your eyes to the rest of the world and chose the place you call home with care

    • Renee

      Let me make this simple for you. We as the people that pay for the crappy service of cable tv have more than a right to complain for overpriced lousy service with bearded fools running their mouths. They never say anything relevant, only the stupid lines that provoke and offend. Anyone has the right to make stupid comments like this fool did, the difference is when you say it in front of millions, that's yelling FIRE! in a crowded room. The backlash isn't nearly as loud as it should be but you're probably trying to grow a beard right now to join the Monsters Ball

      • merleliz

        Good heavens, such hate and anger…do you need someone to teach you how to change the channel on your TV?

  • Gregsqu

    Sorry. I don't see anything wrong with anything he said. All he is doing is sharing his life experiences with the interviewer. I grew up working alongside Mexican migrant workers. I picked cherries, peaches, pears and apples from the time I was in the 7th grade. We worked with them, ate lunches with them and joked with them. When the harvests were over they went back home or moved to Texas to work fields there. We didn't have hard issues with them until the government buckled to Chavez and began forcing farmers to construct housing and provide services that we got along fine without for years. Now the migrants stay in one place, send a big share of their money back to Mexico and drain the resources of this country by getting welfare, food stamps, free medical/dental and educations for their kids. I am good friends with a Mexican family that had 7 kids. All but one went to college for free. Me, I couldn't afford to go myself nor could I afford to send my kids. No one offered to send me money for them. Do you understand why I don't cry for the illegals or other races that have sucked the public teat dry? I agree with Phil, people were happier when they had to depend on their own sweat and ingenuity to survive.

    • Renee

      What Phil said about being happier is as stupid as your unbelievable comments about Migrant workers. You have no clue of history, here's your test, you claim to have worked beside Mexicans and all but 1 went to do college…sorry, don't believe it.
      Second, here's your test, it a Red Neck brain twister: how did the Mexicans end up keeping the farms going while working like slaves? FDR asked them to work the fields during WWII to feed America and the soldiers. Remember, we beat the Nazi's like Phil and his family. But if you would have done what you say you did, you would have known that.. sorry, bad try.
      Phil and his whole Klan can go do the lips around the butt thing.

  • michael

    The man voiced his beliefs and opinons honestly. He did not express any hate, did not propose any sanctions or discrimination against those groups. I do not agree with his ideas, but I see no rancor in his comments. It seems it should be his right to hold and express opinions that are wrong. Has he done a scholarly study on the validity of his opninions? Of course not. But the “unscholarly” are still entiitled to hold and express non-violent controversial opinions. I do not watch the show, but America mad ethem stars as country basic folk, and now we expect them to have studied, sophisticated views on complex social and moral issues? Really now!

  • cptmars

    Having many reletives who grew up in that region everyone has said the exavt opposite. Of what Phil said abot African Americans. I get that he wad being honest and stated his perceptions yet i know his perceptions were not close to reallity.

    1. If you take it upon yourself to redefine your employers’ image, you can expect to get canned. 2.

  • SouthernGirl15

    Here's my thing: A&E KNEW how Phil Robertson was BEFORE they even got to this point. They KNEW he was a Godly man; he has stated that many times in the shows, interviews, and preachings.. A&E KNEW that Phil was a good, honest, Christian man. It's obvious in the TV shows! So why are they doing something now? If they have SUCH a problem with his religious views, then why wait three, four years to finally suspend him? I believe A&E bit their tongue because they were making a HUGE profit on Duck Dynasty merchandise and didn't want to lose that. Now, this will all bite them in the royal behind! Other TV channels are stepping up and declaring they would be more than happy to take on the family and their TV show. Who wouldn't?! It's a clean TV show where all ages can watch. Parents don't have to worry about their child seeing or hearing something they aren't supposed to. Now, as far as his comment on homosexuals: he placed them right next to drunks. He has admitted to the world that he was a man full of sin – sex, drugs, and alcohol. So guys, he is saying the Lord God Almighty will judge us ALL for the sins we have committed. God won't single out the gays, He won't single out the drunks, He won't single out the terrorists, and He won't even single out peopel of other religions. He won't single out ANYONE. He will judge us ALL and give us a fair Judgement Day. He already knows what we have done, what we are doing, and what we will do. So God already knows everything. If you are reading this and you don't believe in God, that's okay. That's your choice. I personally will not judge you on it because I am no better than you. I personally have friends who are gay, lesbian, and bisexual. I may not agree with them, but I do things that they don't agree with. But we remain friends. So what I'm trying to say is that I'm no different and neither is Phil. We are all the same when it comes down to it – sinners. I love everyone regardless of their choices in life. I will not judge.

  • Elbert Colorado

    I must confess, the thought of sticking my erection up some other guy's anus and into his crap filled colon just makes me want to vomit., I dread to think about how malodorous it must be.. “Crazy” me. History, logic and reason, religion, design, function, science, pathology, psychology, sociology all condemn the sodomites. Good is now evil and evil is good. Those who bring to our attention that which is behind the titles must be persecuted and cleansed from polite society because of the sting of conscience they produce…kinda like abortion..

  • Lynda

    The entire family has been unhappy with A&E and the fake bleeps for a while now. Perhaps Phil did the interview
    because they want out of their contract. All he did was answer questions honestly. They will get out of their contract and they will get picked up by another station. It's a win/win situation for DD.

  • rodney

    I agree with Phil and I agree A@E has the right to not let him on the show. The boys will find a new network and the show will be an even bigger success for a couple more years. The bottom line is he gave his opinion and if you don't like it do not watch the show. Also the NAACP needs to learn to read because he said nothing bad about blacks in this interview. I have been on earth for 54 years and I would have to say I have never seen a black mistreated. I have seen it in the news and know that it happened but I never saw it personally.

    My thoughts on this is: If you work for a liberal media company, you must abide by their rules. I spoke out a few times and lost jobs too. I didn't say anything this offensive, of course. Just everyone knew I was a Christian. And when they fired me, they didn't say anything about my beliefs but they claimed they were “downsizing” but I knew better. We Christians are not exempt from persecution, even in the West. But its nothing compared to other countries in the world. If he wants to continue to express his opinion, he should start his own company and then say whatever he wants to say about anything he wishes and be free from reprisal from Liberals.

    • merleliz

      “If he wants to continue to express his opinion, he should start his own company and then say whatever he wants to say about anything he wishes and be free from reprisal from Liberals.”

      You mean like Dan Cathy of Chik Fil A did?

      • laura merrone

        Yep, exactly. Or go join Glenn Beck's TV network…

        • merleliz

          Owning his own company didn't stop Dan Cathy…or any of the people he employs and that own Chik Fil A franchises across the country, from receiving a LOT of reprisals from Liberals, now did it?
          So basically…what you are saying is that no one in this country has the ability to disagree with a Liberal's opinion without being pilloried in the media…and should therefore just stay silent and hide their beliefs. I personally think that is wrong…and very un-American.

          • laura merrone

            I meant reprisal in the sense of being fired from a job. Chick-fil-a is still in business and prospering in spite of the libs complaining about it. Most Americans aren't liberal, so they are still flocking to it. Yes, liberals attack conservatives every day, including me, of course. They call me a religious bigot, unloving, a hater and not tolerant. Well, you can't tolerate evil and of course we need to speak out the truth about what we see happening to our country. I hope that clears it up for you.

    • steve

      Just what exactly did he say that's offensive? I didn't read anything that he said that was even the slightest bit offensive. he spoke the absolute truth. good for him. would someone please show me anything that he said that was not factual or was offensive. please highlight the quote and then explain to me how it is offensive.. anyone who finds what Phil Robertson said is offensive is a filthy liberal. he gave his personal opinion of what he saw with his own eyes. he correctly stated the Biblical view of the offensive homosexual lifestyle. someone enlighten me. liberalism is treason. Phil Robertson for president…then we would actually have a man in the WH.

      • laura merrone

        After hearing everyone's opinion on this, I agree with you that he did validly express his opinion and shouldn't be fired for it. I just wanted to state I was fired for merely being a Christian. Its a hostile environment out there any more. And my relatives are constantly reminding me that I'm a “religious bigot”. But that's their opinion and their entitled to it. I was just pointing out that life is not always fair and he would probably do better on a network that would more reflect his values. However, I am glad they now reinstated him and we'll see how that goes.

  • Kat

    Sorry…exactly what is offensive in any of those comments? And hello…everyone was happier before welfare; it was designed to destroy the family and work ideals of this country.

  • rcbarron

    He should be suspended for misquoting the bible! He does the bible and Jesus a BIG diservice by putting an otherwise beautiful overview of all of man's sin (Jew and Gentile) and Man's wrong headed judgement about others. That passage is not even about gays or homosexuality.

  • ladydi

    what's CRAZY about these quotes??? He didn't say ALL blacks were happy with their life- just the ones he worked side by side with picking cotton. And the way he picked the presidential candidate to vote for- well that was kind of the way I decided. The lesser of two evils and I HAVE voted democrat for 40 years. and so on…don't get the CRAZY part of this article??? He's entitled to his opinion and religious beliefs…Arent we all???

  • the dogman

    Phil Robinson can make a remark which he is entitled to by our constitution and all the candy as gays get offended because normal people can't except there way of life, I ndon't have to accept anyones way of life or thinking, so why don't they go back in the closet!!

  • Bob

    So, Phil Robertson says he witnessed blacks being happy because they were Godly. My what an offensive thing to say. Are you kidding me. When the GLADD Baggers start running the country and our press, we are in trouble.

    You need to stop cherry picking what Phil said and start listening to the Bible that he refers to. He is trying to tell you how to stay out of Hell.

  • Amy Bee

    Lots of people go through their day and don't complain about their lot in life. Doesn't mean they're happy, and doesn't mean Phil Robertson is any sort of expert or
    spokesperson for any African American. Even the ones he claim he worked
    along side.

  • CrazyOle Carl

    Hi there :)

    I respect the fact ppl can say what they want. It doesn't mean that I agree. I guess I'm gifted with an “I don't give a rats ass attitude” I'm a gay redneck. and I don't belong to any particular political party nor any religious organization. I don't hate them nor absolutely believe what they tell me. but I'm not going to tell you that your God is wrong nor right and I'm not going to sit there and argue with you either. I can be quite and give a confused puppy look. You'll think I'm crazy but I don't care about what your opinions are. I hope ppl can one day learn that all this arguing is for what and where is it going to get you? I also hope that you'll learn that what you say might cause an uproar. We all do and say stupid stuff. So choose what you say with kindness and don't get upset if others don't agree with your beliefs. But, also don't get yourself flustered if others speak their beliefs, after all you got to speak yours and they listened. and don't get upset if there is repercussions from what you said. not everybody wants to hear it and they don't have that built in gift that I have. So, If you have a disagreement with something that someone has stated. either walk away or look within yourself to see if you did anything not too brilliantly appealing to yourself or others. and please try show tolerance and always remember! If you don't like what's on T.V. you might not like what's on the computer either. So go outside and be nice to ppl and try not judge others unless you want them to do the same to you. I do hope all of you have a great and Happy New Year and start practicing kindness to everybody or just ignore them and don't stress yourself out. CrazyCrackaCarl :)

    • CrazyOle Carl

      I know the Bible makes ppl argue. That is why I don't believe in it. So, I really don't care when ppl quote from it. I'm not going to argue about something that I believe to be fictional. I have dreams and visions of stuff. However, I'm not going to write a book on it and hammer what I wrote into ppl's heads. I have more respect for others and I wish ppl would do the same. WAIT.. WAIT… WAIT…. I JUST GOT A VISION IN… It says “Y'all need to go to heaven now.” My vision just told me to tell Y'all “to be safe and make it quick” :) And Kozy Kitty Loves ya too!

    • tallijo

      well said. only the biggest problem here is half the people who read the article had or have a hard time with comprehension or they are the liberal media who just don't care what it said it's going to mean what they want it to mean. PERIOD!

      • CrazyOle Carl

        I totally agree. I'm a conservative liberal, and, I always look at all the view points and I usually keep most arguments or opinions to myself unless I feel the ppl or person I'm talking to can engage in a civil discussion with out getting silly. Phil has the right to speak his mind. and you are completely right what he said was not bashing to anyone. he was merely quoting the bible.and allot of ppl do take the Bible and sometimes twist it into how they interpret it to their own agenda. I just wish we could all be nice and civil to one another and try to open up and communicate with each other without all the hatred. On that, I do hope EVERYBODY for and against Phil do have a GREAT, SAFE & HAPPY NEW YEAR!! and please try to show some forgiveness to Phil. we all make dumb mistakes!! CrazyCrackCarl :)

The only thing that's certain is that none of us are getting out of this bitch alive so I say believe in whatever the hell you want to believe in it's your life your options and your consequences. Worry about your own self your own life. All these damned self righteous people trying to control everyone else all these damned government officials forcing their opinions on the people to hell with them all. I say live how you want say what the hell you want it's your life your opinion. If you don't like what's being said walk out the room or change the damned channel. The greatest oppresser of the people in the people themselves. Words are nothing to a man that rules himself. You live in your own mind the problem is that people can not seem to grasp that concept. Another mans word can not impact anything unless you chose to let them. As the saying goes a tiger doesn't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.

      Actually, man's word does impact us because people are still being persecuted based on things like sexual orientation, so yeah we should have freedom of speech but when it impedes basic human rights then something needs to be done. It doesn't effect me specifically and I can still live my life happily but if you can't see how an anti human right opinion is harmful then you're a shell of a human.

    I don't doubt what Phil said he saw and what his own personal experience was. An honest account of something is not a bigoted account just because the account does not fit in with someone else's personal experience. Also, I know white people who get gov't checks, free medical cards, have more expensive phones than what I have, get food stamps, have more vehicles and don't work. That's one of the many things wrong with America, my friends and it doesn't have anything to do with color. It has to do with anyone who believes they are entitled to a free ride.

    I just read the entire article and found the man writting it to be a real jerk. Here he is writting an article about Phil Robertson a godly christian man and uses such foul language through out the entire article. If anyone with a brain reads the whole piece they would understand what he said and not rush to judgement. 1. about blacks: he was pointing out he was there with them and they just did their jobs without complaining. 2. about gays: he did not say they would morph into beastially(sp) but that behavior was foul. He being who he is “a bible thumper” is what he believes. No where in this article did it say he would treat anyone differently because of race, sexual preference, religion or etc. Although, I don't agree with him, he merely made statements that he believes to be true according to the good book, the bible! All the statements were taken and twisted into what people wanted to hear!

    Mr. Phil and his relatives can say whatever they want, and a TV network has the option to braodcast any and every opinion realtive to politics, religion, social mores and whatever. And I, like maybe a few million other people, find his comments misguided, racist, mysogenistic and puerile. I have never watched Duck Dynasty, because idiot red-neck culture doesn't appeal to me. Phil's latest “thoughts” haven't changed my mind. If his ranting doesn't sell ads on TV, he will be gone. Like in the New Testament when there was discussion of persecuting Paul for his preachings about Jesus: if they were not of God, then they would pass away.

    The first amendment says that freedom of speech is safe to say, but what Phil Robertson said was wrong. I don't think that he should go to jail, but he should not get to keep his job. Hate-Speech is not protected from the fist amendment.
