Sean Hannity, 'Duck Dynasty' Fans Target A&E Executives as Phil Robertson Fallout Gets Personal

“Dear @AETV, congratulations, you just committed suicide,” one person tweeted

“Duck Dynasty” defenders and talk show host Sean Hannity got personal in their defense of Phil Robertson Thursday as Hannity gave out the phone numbers of A&E executives on the air and supporters shared them across Twitter.

“Dear @AETV, congratulations, you just committed suicide,” one person tweeted.

Another, going by the name “Zimmerman” after George Zimmerman, the gunman acquitted in Trayvon Martin's death, tweeted that people should “DEMAND” an apology, then gave the network's address and phone number. Zimmerman's Twitter image is a gun pointed at the viewer. (See image, with address and phone number omitted.)

“Tell Ms. Nancy Dubuc at A&E to stop Christian bashing and leave Duck Dynasty alone!!!” said @DennisCarothers, referring to the network's president and CEO.

Robertson's supporters began naming names of the executives they considered responsible for Robertson's suspension after he was given a temporary leave from the show after making anti-gay comments in an interview with GQ.

One bit of good news for Dubuc: She has an unusual last name. That meant some of the angry messages sent her way were misspelled.

  • Levyark

    I have called A & E Numbers Sean gave… One is not taking calls and the other was disconnected… Guess they are getting the message…

    • Hunter_rose

      What message; that you & Hannity are assholes?

      • Hobbesnblue

        Yeah, that'll show A&E, a bunch of bigots harassing some poor receptionist or assistant who's just trying to make it to Christmas break.

        • AGV

          I really doubt you know what a bigot is!

        • Mina Moffo

          There is no such thing as “bigotry” toward perversion

      • Eric

        Wow, look who is a child and can not use proper language. Is it the left once again….. Wake up Hunter_rose, freedom of religion and speech. I believe that hate is coming from you. Thank you for proving that to the American people.

        • AGV

          Ditto Eric!!! said well.

          • Mike A

            No country can take over our country militarily, but it will fall from the inside because of the beliefs that the left is forcing down our throat, but the truth hurts when they are questioned by the standards brought forth in the bible. Remember what happened in Genesis, that Sodom and Gormarha were destroyed because of these beliefs, God loves all people that none should perish, but he hates the sins our country is commintting and allowing. The fence of protection has been taken down and now we are going down the tubes. May Jesus forgive us for allowing this and his love and forgiveness over whelm the sins of this nation.

          • Don

            Amen, Mike! To bad someone never explained, Leviticus 18:22; 20:13 and all of Romans 1 to these fools. It was these abominations that brought Sodom and Gomorrah to utter ruin. It's also the ultimate, “IN YOUR FACE” to GOD. Where evil is tolerated, it becomes accepted, then imitated. These people are also the reason “liberals” removed the “Sodomy Laws” from the books. They don't even know that our laws come from Judeo/Christian principals.

          • no money in peace

            And those Judeo/Christian principals are plagiarized from the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Egyptian religion is the foundation for the Judeo/Christian theology (baptism, afterlife, virgin birth, crucifixion, resurrection, afterlife, great flood, commandments, Easter, Christmas, Passover, etc…) — all Egyptian ideas vastly predating Christianity. Surely the Bible gives credit in the footnotes.

            It's all fiction anyhow.

          • Mina Moffo

            You are just repeated what stupid people have said, on the internet

          • Dee

            Dee – I agree with Phil. The Bible is pretty plain. It speaks of a man laying with a man or a woman laying with a woman in an unseemly manner “See Corinthians”. What do you think that means exactly? Take a look at Sodom and Gomorrah. Get it, the name “Sodom” says it all. If Christians don't stand up for what is right, how can they call themselves Christians? Phil didn't say he hated them for their preference. He only stated facts. If no one tells them the truth, they will pay in the day of judgment for not being honest with them. As for me I have a couple of friends who are gay. I told them I disagreed with their lifestyle but that I loved them and in the day of judgment, God would be the one to judge them and it would be a true and just judgment. But as God fearing Christians it is our responsibility to tell them the truth of what the Bible (God's Word) has to say on the subject.
            I have only seen the show about 6 – 8 times, my husband watches it, but I like that they are not ashamed to say they are Christians and do not use foul language on the show. Also that they pray and give God thanks on every edition.
            To those who support Phil, Christianity, and Freedom of Speech I hope you “Boycott” all networks associated with A&E. I will continue to pray from Phil and especially for some of the people, language and things said on this site.

        • Lorne

          I think That the people of A&E are stupid. And running in another century. maybe another network should pick up the show. People get a life and bring back phil. Its to bad now that we have to be so politatly correct about everything and everyone. People it only the greatest show on TV ever.

      • Catbyrd

        And YOU, Hunter_rose, are the only one who has the right to an opinion? Speaking of assholes….
        Everybody has the right to their opinion. I don't necessarily agree with everything Mr. Robertson says or believes, but I will defend to the death his right to say it or believe it. It's idiots like you who think everyone should believe what you believe and say only what is “politically correct” who are ruining this country. All anybody or any group these days who gets their feelings hurt is throw a temper tantrum and they get their way. I'm fed up with it, personally. Run tell that.

      • AGV

        Hunter…you have real problems. Think about what you say.

      • Skipper24

        Now that is an intelligent reply.

      • Duck defender

        Now aint that just the A-Typical liberal response to an opposing view…… revert to name calling, Personal attacks, and vulgarity

      • Craig M.

        And Phil is the one with the hate speech? In my past experiences anyone who uses the language like you just did is much more fitting of the word.

      • John Stewart

        Does anyone from A&E even believe in a “Kingdom of Heaven”? Why then would they care if one group or another did or did not have access to it?

        • Melissa Ford Showalter

          People believe in many different things. Look at how many different churches there are. Why is there not just one national church in this country? I live in a small town and there must be a least 10 different baptist churches. Why? Because people don't always see eye to eye, especially when it comes to religion.

      • Joe Momma

        haha? what!? so we are assholes because we feel its right for someone to voice their opinion… was phil not being interviewed?! the media sets celebrities up for this type of scenerio… its probably a distraction for some fuck up the government pulled… havent you ever seen chappelle's show? haha michael jackson existed for that reason alone

      • FearTheBeard

        @hunter_rose:disqus Seriously they are aholes because they wish to stand united in their ideas and beliefs and stage a protest like all good Americans can do when they believe something is wrong. These people did not stop those with different beliefs from rallying behind their ideas.

    • anklestonemcgraw kasper

      Good :D

    • AGV

      what is that number????

    • Darren

      AE TAKE THIS STUPIED SHOW OFF

  • Mr. Works and Days

    You watch TOO MUCH TV. Just saying'.

  • Shelly

    This country has truly gone to hell. I suppose next if we don't believe in abortion we will be fired too. WTF. This is total BS. The man has his opinion. What is wrong with this country . They talk about diversity. There is no diversity, its either think like us or your canned. What a bunch of zombies and cowards we have all become. God forbid someone have there own opinion and belief and actually says it. Regardless if you agree or don't agree, it really doesn't matter if you read the entirety of his interview he also says I believe in respect for everyone regardless of our differences.

    • dogtrainer1

      The problem with these comment blogs, in my opinion, is that most folks today either CANNOT read nor comprehend what they have read, or else are simply reactive individuals with limited IQ's. In any event, the Robertson family were successful both as a cohesive family unit and a very successful business long before this reality show and will continue to be the same much after the show's demise. To those people who have their panties in a bunch over the GQ article (which most have net even rad or they would just be quiet), In the Bible, Romans 1:22 states “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools”, has been applicable for many centuries and will only become more apparent in the future. Just continue to review most print news and comment sites, for proof of Stupidity levels in our World. Good luck and continued happiness to the Robertson family:)

      • buffalowade1

        yes, is not scary

    • Melissa Ford Showalter

      You can believe what ever you want to believe. But if you bring it into your place of employment your employer can fire you. We don't all share the same beliefs.

      • buffalowade1

        Ever heard of the Salem witch hunts???????????????? This is what some of you are. condemn and burn everyone you disagree with.

    • buffalowade1

      Glad to see there are still some normal down to earth people still around. AGREE 100% !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Newzheimer

    What's the number that I call to get Hannity off the air?

    • Shadow

      Sean Hannity is a Patriot!!! God Bless America

      • Sara Palin

        Sean Hannity is a Self righteous A-hole!

    • Skipper24

      What is the number that I call to get you off of the air?

  • Caley McGuire

    Hannity's program thrives on ginned-up controversies like this to throw red meat to his ‘help us, the sky is falling’ followers. Show biz, folks. He cares. He really cares. About his ratings.

  • Sonya A. Willis

    Some of these comments prove that liberals can dish it out but they can't take it. Keep hearing from liberals that A&E has the right to suspend/fire Phil Robertson. Free speech has consequences. Well guess what? Sean and fans have the right to respond to A&E's actions too and they are.

    Bottom line: If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch!

    • Hunter_rose

      Hey, you're free to be a bigot if you want, madam…

      • AGV

        There you go with that word again” bigot”, do you even know what that word means??? I doubt it!

      • Bill NFayle De Shaw

        What happened to our 1st Amendment rights?? Freedom of Speech? I guess A&E and Glaad have never heard of the Constitution…..Of course, these are probably some of the same folks that will tell you that our Constitution is obsolete.

        • Paul L.

          The 1st amendment doesn't apply to white christian males any more. Don't you know that?

          • comodore

            You have the right to be stupid … this is not a FREE Speech issue. it is plain Gay bashing and we need to get the dumb red neck on the way home off the air….LOVE thy neighbor !!

          • jschlue2

            “Gay bashing” What about when gays start “Christian bashing”? I suppose that's ok though, for them to call us “hateful, bigoted, homophobes” just for expressing our opinion. “Love thy neighbor”, coming from the one who just called Phil Robertson a “dumb redneck”. That's rich!

          • butter

            Loving thy neighbor has nothing to do with agreeing with their lifestyle choices.

          • Common Sense Mike

            I love the way when someone else's opinion contradicts yours it is ‘hate speech'. Typical Fascist and Communist reactions. If it differs from the ‘Party Line’ burn it or ban it or kill it….sad really.

          • billy

            Love thy neighbor doesn't mean you have to agree with their lifestyle. You love them in spite of their wrongdoing just as would want others to do the same of you

          • Melissa Ford Showalter

            Maybe should read the constitution. This is not a free speech issue.

        • Darren

          You lost that when Obama won

          • Billy

            Darren ever stop to think that the people who voted Obama in office are the same ones who run crying and shouting discrimination when someone disagrees with their lifestyle.

          • Darren

            No cause it's hard for me to believe that 47% of our country was so blinded to his lies I'm just astonished how dumb some people can be or they just want there hand out and will vote for who ever offers most govt assistance !!!

        • beardog1579

          Oh, they've HEARD of it – they just want to destroy it – like all the other liberal moves in the past years. If these people HATE AMERICA so much – WHY ARE THEY STILL HERE?! Russia proves that no other country would accept their sorry butts – so they need to take it inside their own homes and do whatever they wnat – but THEY DONOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO RUN OUR LIVES !!!

          • Melissa Ford Showalter

            Once again, read the constitution, this is not a free speech issue.

        • Kim

          Give a try at actually reading the constitution. It protects only against the government creating laws that impede free speach. As a matter of fact, this is a perfect example of everyone actually having free speach. Phil spoke his bigotry, A&E spoke their opinion freely, people are all speaking their minds. Nobody is being prevented. PHil can go on any street corner and preach his hatred whenever he pleases, but A&E doesn't have to put him on the air on their channel. Freedom all around.

          • Stanley Jacobs

            A&E are the BIGOTS!!
            They discriminated against Heterosexuals and Christians.

          • haden

            Phil did not say He hates homosexuals. what he did was quote a scripture in the Bible. what he hates is sin . not homosexuals. I am signing in as guest because I do not remember my username

          • buffalowade1

            But he must hate homo's Cause he quoted the Bible. If you believe in the bible then you must be a gay hater is what I'm getting from all this

        • Melissa Ford Showalter

          Free speech does not cover this, Free speech only covers him if the govt. is trying to silence him and arrest him.

      • happy42xxx

        So you would support folks that want to molest young kids? I am sure they think what they do is OK…oh wait – that would make you either a bigot or a hypocrite – take your pick moron

      • Craig M.

        Your post is a prime example of what Sonya is talking about. Sonya did not have any name calling in her post yet you respond with name calling. How is a response like yours not hateful? Why is it acceptable for liberals to label anything they do not agree with hate speech and they respond with name calling? Someone expressing their personal and religious views is hateful yet what ever rant a liberal goes on in response is free speech?

        • bob

          name calling is all they can respond with as they do not have any kind of argument that they can use in defense of their case. i see no bigotry in mr. robertsons remarks. if these are his christian beliefs, then it should be case closed as just that his beliefs. they are not neccessarily shared by others. GLAAD and A&E have made way too much out of nothing. if the gay community wants courtesy they should be ready to return it. all choices have consequences and problems, if they cannot deal with them, maybe they made a bad choice?

      • Avery Forester

        Obvious lack of education and fundamentals. Raised in a horrible environment . Its not your fault. I don't blame you for your nonsense view of the world.

      • Nathan Broman

        Being a bigot has nothing to do with it and you sound ignorant for suggesting it. The issue isn't what was said but that he is being discriminated against for personal belief because his belief isn't isn't the popular politically correct belief.

      • Suziq1591

        Hunter rose: and you are free to be a Christian and God hater.

      • mcr

        It's about time someone spoke the truth, the bible says that the truth will make you free, (not set you free). So, it time for everyone to hear and face the truth. God doesn't make mistakes, so please stop using that as a excuse to justify your actions. Read the Old testament and the New Testament, There will be another ….Sodom and Gomorrah Gen 19, Roman, 1 Cor and Book of Rev.

    • David Clift

      YEAH WHAT SHE SAID..lol

  • J. Satterfield

    A&E's new slogan is “Be Original” That's funny right there! Now I see were it's being said “Duck Dynasty” Star Bashes Gays. What? ? ? I believe he was asked a question and he simply answered it. GQ knew of Phil's strong Christian beliefs before they asked the question they already knew his answer to.
    As far as A&E's decision to fire Phil over his beliefs, I support their right to do so. But “Hey Jack” that would be like shooting your best cash cow! The Robertson family now have to decide to band together and support Phil, or sell out and continue without him. After the dust settles, I bet I'm watching the Robertson on a different network!

    • Becky

      I hope the Robertsons are even able to leave if they want. Didn't they just sign a new contract not that long ago? They may be stuck for awhile. But if it was me, I'd personally make the show as boring as possible until they brought Phil back.
      A&E just killed the best show it ever had or ever has a hope of having.

      • samf1953

        I like this idea. Just sit on the front porch and watch the grass grow.

        • Tom Maloney

          … and spend all day talking about how much they miss having Phil on the show. Maybe read the Bible passages where it talks about the sin of homosexual acts.

          • Lord Humongous

            That would be EPIC!

          • Raz Prose

            I don't think a whopping six passages out of the Bible would make for enough material to fill a season's worth of shows. Maybe, Phil could talk about the bible's calls to care for the poor, widowed, or orphaned. Eh, then again, based on his views in the interview, he'd probably just talk about any of the many now-outdated and ignored moral imperatives the Bible establishes as part of the divine plan, i.e, slavery and the subordination of women.

            Not as “EPIC” as it might seem to those who have not actually read the book they profess to follow.

          • Bill

            That's the problem Raz. He and some of us like him that have read the Bible don't find any of it outdated, though we would probably agree with “ignored.” Cultural shifts in morality don't over-ride truth. Therefore, what was true then is true now. As to your reference slavery and subordination, it only proves you haven't read it yourself. The first demonstrates ignorance, while the second indicates naiveté. We all find ourselves subordinate to someone or something. Even Jesus discussed his subordinance to the Father.

          • chris463650

            One dont have to read the etire Bible to know that homosexuality is a sin. A man can love another man but dont have to have sex with one another.

            “In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion” (Romans 1:27).

            This was written by Paul one of the most educated scholars of that time and he was no “hick”

            Even in the animal kingdom when this happens its something outside the pattern of life. This does not mean I hate gays or is homophobic. In everything “hate the sin but love the person.”

            I am in Canada and very much a liberal thinking person.

          • Suzan Atkinson-Haverty

            Hey RAZ, Phil has two degrees. He is far educated than most people are. I wouldn't be talking to much like you think he has not read the Bible from cover to cover. Don't be a dumb dumb!
            He is extremely educated and cunning! Why do you think he is now on top? You know what you are doing here now….bringing in the whole entire agenda of crap….race, women, which he has not spoke about at all negatively. Thanks Rax for making trouble, where trouble does not exist! Your the trouble!

          • Raz Prose

            Read the whole GQ interview, you stupid, ill-informed, soppy twat. Phil brought in race. I didn't. But, like Palin, apparently, you've not actually read that which you're defending—Pavlovian response: always a sign of a strong mind.

            Further I have three degrees, two terminal; one is a MS in Theological Studies.

            Last, and please, before you respond with your pat “I'm boring” bullshit, stamp out the trouble in your own pit, before you try to light kindling in another.

            Have fun driving your husband to the next Promise Keepers (re: “six-pack gays”) convention.

          • Imperial Aerosol Kid

            Hey Tom do you follow EVERY word? There some pretty crazy stuff in the book you base your life around. Love the way you RWNJ pick and choose which bits are relevant to today. Hilarious.

          • Tom Maloney

            “Hey Tom do you follow EVERY word?”
            Since you didn't wait for an answer to your question, I'll assume that you don't want to know. This tells me quite a bit about you. This tells me that the only thing you have to add to a conversation is uninformed comments and insults. This makes you inconsequential.
            For those who actually like to hear answers before they make their comments … you know, intelligent people … I'll answer by saying that I do not “follow” the Bible. I consider it an interesting read and source of historic information and philosophy. I question much of what is written in an attempt to understand the message and historical importance while respecting those who believe.
            My purpose on this board is to defend a man's right to his beliefs, whether or not I agree with those beliefs. For example, you consider yourself to be intelligent and/or clever. I disagree, but support your right to live in this fantasy.

          • Imperial Aerosol Kid

            “Wait for an answer”. Lol. I'm here Tom waiting just for your every word. I presume you posted similar posts about Bashir?
            Where on earth do I say I consider myself intelligent? You read an awful lot from a three sentence message.
            Your pompous reply tells me a lot about you.
            And it ain't good Tommy. You are a hypocrite and I'm sure you know that, free speech as long as it's what you and your flock believe in.

          • Tom Maloney

            You are correct, and I apologize for my incorrect assumption. I see now that you don't consider yourself to be intelligent. We are in agreement.
            Ya see? I can admit when I'm wrong.

          • Imperial Aerosol Kid

            It's obvious you are intelligent Tommy. Anyone who agrees with people like Palin, Cruz, Hannity and Santorum show their intelligence. I will leave you to get on with watching Fox News. Happy Holidays. Snork.

          • Terri Wessels

            Hey, that isn't nice, I like Fox News, only place you can find the truth on things……they have people on there from both sides of the fence, so you can make up your own mind on issues,,,,you should try it sometimes before putting it down

          • terry

            Fox, not all of it but some of the noisier fox contributors, have been caught in exaggerations and outright lies, but of course they don't tell you when the get caught unless there is a huge uproar then they just say “well what do you expect to hear from a” [fill in the blank] = liberal, socialist, democrat sometimes all three. The only way they are fair and balanced is that most media agrees with democrats more so they lean to the right on everything.

          • bobbygiles

            Or maybe talk about Bristol Palin's sin. Oh, that's right, we're nobody's judge. Leave that all to God, right Phil? I mean, wouldn't you prefer a vagina? Maybe I'm misquoting you, sorry.

          • Suzan Atkinson-Haverty

            Bobby, atleast she had a child the normal way! BOY/GIRL! You can't put that down! She's not gay! She's healthy in nature, not messed up in the head with nature. Phil is right! Lose the sin thing! Its boring! Not everybody cares about that anymore! People care about morality and normal. You really like that part of what Phil said, you got that part right, you were listening. There was nothing wrong with what Phil said on that subject! What is your problem Bobby?

          • Suzan Atkinson-Haverty

            I think I'd die laughing, if they ever did that! I am not religious, but I was raised catholic, and went to catholic schools from 5 to 18, and that was it for me! I have gone back to my Irish pagan roots! I have beliefs that are prior to Christianity hitting the shores of Ireland. Somewhat like our American Indians, believing in nature, that's it! I cannot rap my mind around the gay lifestyle myself. It on its head goes against nature big time! So we know it is not natural! Which in turn I do not believe it is normal! I agree that Phil has all the right in our great country to say what he wants to say, and believe in what he wants to believe in. That is America! His speaking and saying how he felt is his first amendment right! FREE SPEECH BABY! The gays free speech everyday and we have to listen to it whether we believe in it or not! I agree with Phil, and I am not religious. Go Phil!

          • Buzz

            what a bunch of Hippocrates you christian defenders are of the Robertsons. You obviously read the Bible and abide by the teachings that you think are important or work for your little minds. Rather selective don't you think. Try evolving for a change If Jesus does come back all of you bigots, homophobes, racists and holier than thous are probably in for a rude awakening, if you even recognize him. Your vision of this MAN are likely as inaccurate as your understanding of his teachings.

            While we were discussing the ‘Duck Dynasty’ turn of events around the ‘ol water cooler today, one of my coworkers (who is openly gay) stated that he is in fact a ‘gay Christian'. I pointed out to this utterly confused individual that there is no such thing as a ‘gay Christian', explaining: In the Holy Bible, God's thoughts on homosexuality are spelled out very plainly. God is most definitely NOT in favor of homosexuality. Absolutely zero gray area there. Christians, are by definition-disciples of Christ. Therefore, you cannot be a disciple of Christ, and at the same time maintain a homosexual lifestyle. They are mutually exclusive concepts. Now, I'm sure that homosexuals do not like hearing this, but it is a fact.

            Now, generally when a homosexual person hears this from a Believer, they accuse the Believer of ‘condemning (him/her) to hell'. This is inaccurate. It is not the place of ANY mortal to condemn another to hell. We are ALL sinners. Period. God loves, but he also WILL have his reckoning.

          • Suzan Atkinson-Haverty

            Bucksnort, You are very right! I am not religious but grew up in deep catholic religion. We learned the bible too. Gays as far as they are concerned are going to hell! That's the bottom line according to Rome. I do not get into any of this stuff anymore. I believe it just all comes down to nature. The gays cannot argue their way out of this one. Two guys cannot make a child, two women cannot make a child, no procreation, nothing to do with god, just the human race moving forward. If it was left all up to gays to live their lives purely, the human race would come to an end. Nature is the forum where they are outed! It's just plain wrong, not normal, whatever you want to call it! It just isn't right! Whether gays like it or not, there is no such thing as a gay Christian. They seem to be making everything up as they go along now, trying to fit into normal healthy society. I liked it better when they were in the closets!

          • Mina Moffo

            The Bible was not used to legitimize slavery
            Slavery as the Jews in the Torah practiced was NOT chattel slavery (which was invented and established by the blacks of Africa)
            In the Bible , it was bondsmanship, where you SELL your own labor for money, food, shelter and secuity,. just like you do at your job.
            Thats why you could work your “debt” off and your work could be sold to others.

            There is no such thing a person called a Witch in the Bible
            A witch means “rage” or “fury”, So ” Do not suffer a witch to live” literally means no not allow rage and fury to take you over.
            The Salem Trials were not held by a church The British Government held them. (they were ruled by a KIng)

          • Marvin W.Lambert

            If witches are not real then explain the witch of Endore in the old testament. You may not be a believer of God's holy word, if not then this is falling on deaf ears. May God bless and keep you safe always.

          • Raz Prose

            Your depiction of slavery is, to say the least, inaccurate. You are right that it was not the same as the institutional, chattel slavery as practiced in America. Your claim that you could “work your ‘debt’ off” is only partially true. See the different rules for female slaves.

            But “witch” as “rage” or “fury.” You're an etymological contortionist, where did you find that? “Witch” is Germanic in origin, and derives from the word for “to bewitch.” So, if you're using that Germanic word as if it was the one used in the Hebrew Bible, then you're hopelessly lost. I suppose you also think the KJV is accurate.

            However, enough with the (admittedly deserved) ad hominem, please explain how your redefinition of “witch” helps to explain 1 Samuel 28. So, was the Witch of Endor, the woman Saul consults to raise Samuel's ghost, not actually a witch who practiced necromancy?

            Guess it's true: a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.

          • Suzan Atkinson-Haverty

            Albert, people do not have to be religious to believe that being gay is wrong. I believe being gay is wrong because its is not natural. It goes against nature! Animals are not even screwed up like this! It shows how faulty the human make up can be. Religion has nothing to do with it. Against nature is against nature! Wrong is wrong! You can have morals without religion!

            That is what Robertson said about gays in 2010. He is a poor representation of christianity in my opinion but hey, the Westboro Baptist Church is going to picket A & E for him so he is in good company.

          • Raz Prose

            That's hilarious; you are making a sweeping generalization and asking someone to disprove it. Brilliant reasoning there, leonard. Really.

            But let's go to your likewise brilliant exegesis of scripture, shall we?

            Luke 17:27 reads: “they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up to the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.”

            Yes, absolutely crystal clear that the good physician is referring to “homosexuals,” a term that did not exist until the late 19th century. Quit projecting and twisting scripture to support your bigotry. At least own up to your homophobia.

            But maybe you meant verses 28 & 29 from this same chapter, which deal with the citizens of Sodom during the time of Lot.

            Then again, before you have a knee-jerk response to Sodom and “the gays,” read Ezekiel 16: 49: “Now look at the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters were proud, sated with food, complacent in prosperity. They did not give any help to the poor and needy.”

            Obviously, those daughters were “the gays.” Yep. Obvious.

            I would have you read on in Ezekiel, through the next two verses, 16:50-51:” Instead, they became arrogant and committed abominations before me; then, as you have seen, I removed them. Samaria did not commit half the sins you did. You have done more abominable things than they did. You even made your sisters look righteous, with all the abominations you have done.”

            Of course, every time you read the word translated “abominations” you probably think “the gays,” as if we are the only ones

          • leonard

            Are you really that dumb? “THEY” were eating and drinking and marrying, “They” meaning men. “They” were given in marriage. Again “They” meaning men. Men are never given in marriage unless it is a homosexual marriage. It is women that are always given in marriage. I'm not even going to address the rest of your bone headed comment. P*ss off.

          • Raz Prose

            You're projecting, leonard. Luke 17:25-27 mentions no “homos” or men only, but speaks of the then-present generation in its relation to the coming of the Son of Man. Here is what the Bible actually says:

            “But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation.m26As it was in the days of Noah,n so it will be in the days of the Son of Man;27they were eating and drinking…”

            Nowhere does the scriptural lynchpin of your fallacious claim signal out “the gays.”

            So, why do you keep reading we queers into the text? A) your homophobia belies your own repressed homosexual tendencies; B) you're a biblical “literalist,” who reads certain passages “symbolically” or “spiritually” to justify your prejudices.

            As for the rest of my previous “bonehead comment,” you really should read it. Ezekiel has some rather good points. Have fun cherry-picking, leonard

          • leonard

            I didn't cherry pick anything. You asked me a question and I answered.

            8He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts
            suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not
            so.

            9And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

          • Raz Prose

            Mina Moffo, your veritable spamming assumes that I argued the Bible says nothing about men who have sex with men. Please note that I used that phrase instead of “sodomite” or “homosexual” because the former word did not exist until the medieval period, while the latter was not coined until the late 19th century.

            Please stay on task and address what I was actually saying. If you want to have a “verse-off,” trust me, you will lose.

            But back to the point: Leonard asserted that Luke 17:27 blamed homosexuals, when it explicitly does not. He, like you I'm just going to assume, are literalists who are guilty of bibliolatry. I digress.

            I pointed out what that verse from Luke actually, literally says, then I cited actual other scripture that he may have been thinking of, but showed how his interpretation of that scripture is wrong.

            But, please, school me. Before you do, however (since we're moving goal posts) be able to actually expound upon and account for the following:

            1) Why did Jesus not marry?
            2) So, Paul was celibate, but he still battled against a “thorn in his flesh.” How should we take his 180˚-turn regarding marriage in the later, authentic epistles?
            3) In consideration of the first two questions, why did early Christianity actually esteem virgins and the celibate? Note: be ready to discuss the Cult of the Virgin that existed during the period of Roman persecution.
            4) So, what does Jesus actually say about family?

            In closing, ye whose last name is slang for a profanity, since a sin is a sin is a sin, which is the perennial refrain from people like you, are you likewise judgmental of Phil Robertson's past adultery? If not, then why not?

            Oh, but I know the answer to that—a surer bet there isn't. You probably have an “In case of Rapture, this car will be unmanned” bumper sticker.

            It says that they married wives and were given in marriage. For your interpretation to make sense, we have to assume Jesus is condemning these things and that he's talking specifically about men and not people in general. Neither is really spelled out in the text. Even we assume this, it only makes sense if he's condemning marriage in general considering what he says right before.

            you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
            Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
            nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And
            such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified,
            but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit
            of our God.

            We live under the NEW testament, not the Old……just goes to show who KNOWS their Bible and who doesn't.

          • JIMBO

            BUTTERFLY; YOU DONT KNOW THE BIBLE, YOU DONT THROW OUT THE OLD AND LIVE WITH THE NEW…..THATS WHERE EVERYONE IS WRONG. AND THE NEW TESTAMENT DOESNT SAY ITS OK TOO BE GAY………..JACKASS

          • K Jones

            It IS true, that Christians are called “New Testament” believers, because Jesus changed the rules of who could receive salvation (It's not just for Jewish people anymore)…BUT even Jesus said, I did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. The Old Testament histories, laws and guidelines that were written to guide the Jewish nations may not apply in totality to today's non-Jewish Christians, but Scripture is very plain about the stand on homosexuality. And because sin is sin…and liars, thieves, murderers commit sin too, not just practicing homosexuals, all fall short and need forgiveness, so we cannot judge. We can only love and let God do the judging. But I think it's OK to disagree with someone, with their lifestyle, with their choices in life. It's alright to have an opinion. You can't censure someone because he/she doesn't feel the way you do. Well, I guess you can (apparently), but not if you live by God's Word. Forgiveness is the word.

          • 313Kriss

            Great wisdom.

          • nvrbl

            Bull. Read the stuff this guy has said about gays. His remarks are ignorant, slanderous, and hateful. No one is censoring him. He has the right to say all the hateful stupid stuff he wants, and people have the right to criticize him for it. Using God to push a hateful agenda is an old trick but just as ugly now as it has always been.

          • butterflyinoh

            Jimbo, I'd say I know it a whole lot more of it than you do… since every time I read it I ask God for HIS wisdom and knowledge to understand what he's teaching me…and FYI, there are demons in this world; I've been face to face with one…Iiterally…and I haven't thrown out the old, as you are accusing, but do live under the new. And just where did you come up with the assumption that I support gays? When it clearly states in the Old & New testament that it is wrong…that's what happens to people like you who ASSUME…and if YOU truly knew the Bible…you wouldn't be calling me names….which shows me who YOU really are.

          • julsmantx

            actually Jesus did away with the old “laws” and said the new law is love. old law being blood sacrifice for any sin ,over 600 specific sins

          • terry

            It does say what you do to the least of me you do to me, and love your neighbor as thyself. I am sure it doesn't say be a jackass to other people in my name. Also no you don't throw out the old but that is why Jesus came to die for our sins,to temper the old testament, to take them away as long as you accept Jesus/God/The Holy Spirit into your heart for everyone is a sinner.

          • matt

            Jesus said he didn't not come down here to change the law (meaning the old convinet) but to fullfil it. The bible clearly teaches us in both the old and new testament that man with man and woman with woman is a sin an a abomination unto God. The old testament gives us Gods commandments are we to just forget about those because of the new testament? I dont think so my friend.

          • butterflyinoh

            Did you see anywhere that I posted about forgetting the old testament??? NO, I didn't. Now let me ask YOU a question…why did God give the Ten Commandments to begin with??

          • 313Kriss

            The Ten Commands still apply today. If you break one of them, it is like you have broken all of them.

          • Raz Prose

            Moses actually received 613 commandments. Christians only pay attention to the first ten. Maybe I should throw several question marks in there to implicitly mark you as an idiot???

          • butterflyinoh

            Gee–If you know the Bible so well it sure doesn't show; and you can't be a Christian either….you're speech says it all…it says in the Bible that we will know by their works….and you just showed yours.

          • Raz Prose

            First and foremost, if your discernment of scripture is as accurate as your grammar, upon its literal truth, then your claim that “you're speech says it all” is just sad.

            Sad.

            I am a Christian, a craddle-Catholic (I'm assuming that you're one of those idiots who believe Catholics aren't Christians, because, fuck-history [without us, what would you have?]), and, like leonard, you did not actually address my posts.

            Go back and read Exodus, you twat. Then, and only THEN, tell me what I DON'T know.

            I'm betting you're a Joel-Osteen-Jesus-Wants-Us-to-be-Rich-Christian.

            Fly, fly away you ephemera.

            But let's address works, shall we? Yes, let's. Re: James 2:18: “Indeed someone might say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.”

            Now, read James 2: 19-26 ( but, please, pay special attention to the final verse of this chapter: “For just as a body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.”).

            Have fun with the King James “kiddie” reader, you stupid cunt, Oh, did I just judge? Pshaw.

          • julsmantx

            Ok let's stop the the worst case of misinformation in history.
            there weren't 10 there were over 600 and all were very specific and required blood sacrifice the to be forgiven Jews only.”10” were just that top 10.
            and on a side note ,the “Law of Love” encompasses all of the old laws. ie. if you love everyone you won't do any of those and more to them. and you can ask for forgiveness in Jesus name to be forgiven for any sin. so to perpetuate and try to lead others into sinful behavior is definitely christian behavior, and denying Jesus, so get that forgiveness before you die because the punishment is forever. sorry for being so long-winded Butterflyinoh.

          • butterflyinoh

            It's a shame that everyone seems to jump to the conclusion that I tried to separate the Old and New testament, which I did not. They go hand in hand, and that WE are living under the New Testament….which is under GRACE. The Ten commandments were to show the Jews their SIN; and that NO man can be Holy because of them….I know that there are over 600…I just asked about the first 10.

          • 313Kriss

            Don't go down that path. Both Testaments of the Bible reveal God's working in the lives of sinful people. The types and prophesy of the Old Testament find their fulfillment in the New Testament. You cannot fully understand the New Testament without understanding the Old Testament and the times it represents.

          • 313Kriss

            Try learning about the New Covenant.

          • Temperance_Tucker

            Sadly we are the minority now even in the South. Pitiful
            but true. If you think things are bad now, just wait until the social engineers get serious in the next 10 years. We are no longer a free country. While we whittle the hours away, the public school machine is transforming all of our children into dependent little automatons of progressive atheism.

          • 313Kriss

            Take them out of public schools and home school them. If you are unable to do that, make sure you correct the misinformation they have been given.

          • AdmiralJ

            Christians are not the majority, they are a minority in this country. Anyway this isn't about religion or Phil's freedom to speak his mind. It is about fostering hate speech towards another group of Americans because one persons disagrees with choices another person has made.

          • Guest

            Have you been huffin’ fart metane?

          • 313Kriss

            And you are basing your opinion on what ?

          • Average Joe

            First off, show me any legitimate study that states that Christians are a minority in the US. Secondly, stating that homosexuality is a sin is not “hate speech” that you cowards like to hide behind. Why should you consider anything Christian as hate speech since you obviously don't believe in Christianity to begin with? Hypocrite!

          • AdmiralJ

            Joe, then prove, by legitimate study, that I'm wrong. Attendance for religious services have been dropping across the country for the last 40 years. Fact. Just ask your local preacher. And NO, I'm not an atheist.
            Just because a religious minority in this nation wants to hijack this country and force it into a theology government (think Iran) isn't going to happen. Your version of (religious) political correctness is what is destroying the fabric of this nation. Why is yours the only path to follow?

          • Rodney Wascom

            I don't believe Christians are a minority, but if you say it enough times you will start to believe it. That's the way you atheist work, you try to make everyone think they are weak and losing but its pretty obvious you don't know what you are talking about. Look at what's going on now. The majority has had enough of your political correctness and we're speaking out.

          • AdmiralJ

            Rodney, you and Joe are two sheep from the same flock. Followers who listen only to the bell in front of them and follow willingly without challenging the tenants.

            HOW DO *YOU*!! KNOW!?!

          • AdmiralJ

            David, how do you know it's not?
            I base my opinion on the facts that attendance in congregations (regardless of denomination) across this nation have been decreasing over the last 40 years. How can you claim that this is the majority? You can't.

          • Imperial Aerosol Kid

            Except the majority of people don't have such bigoted views. That's why Teaparty is running at a five year low in polls.

          The Constitution protects the rights of minorities from a tyrannical majority..

          • Mary

            Every AMERICAN has the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The minorities do not have more rights than the majority they have the same rights. And Phil has a right to his opinion. Watch out what rights you want to take away because eventually it will come back around and you will be crying when someone tries to rob you of your rights. It is a slippery slope that our country is on.

            Minorities are defined based in immutable characteristics, not behaviors. Being gay is not an immutable characteristic.

          • bronco clayton

            Not a minority huh? Well i'd love to see which dictionary validates this claim because when I looked up the word
            a. The smaller in number of two groups forming a whole.
            b. A group or party having fewer than a controlling number of votes.
            2.
            a. A racial, religious, political, national, or other group thought to be different from the larger group of which it is part.
            b. A group having little power or representation relative to other groups within a society.
            c. A member of one of these groups. See Usage Note at color.
            3. Law The state or period of being under legal age: still in her minority…..your an idiot! Furthermore if homosexuality isn't an immutable characteristic heterosexuality isn't either.

          • Discerning Citizen

            Sorry, I should have said it better. Special legal protections shouldn't be granted based on BEHAVIORS, only on immutable characteristics. Technically, gays may be a minority, but special protections shouldn't be granted for a minority group unless it's based on an unchangeable characteristic. Sorry, but being gay is not an unchangeable characteristic. People stop being gay all the time.

          • bronco clayton

            Very well..I do see your point about the immutable characteristics and the so called gays that can change. Those gays are usually grouped in class..ie bisexual,questioning, gay for pay, lesbian chic etc.. Just like the heterosexuals who can change and that's usually called coming out of the closet. To each is his own when can only agree to disagree

          • AdmiralJ

            Complete and utter Horse crap.
            You cannot change the way you were born. If you are a gay person, that was gods plan for you. And none of that “pray away the gay” crap will every work. Those who do are falling for the con being fostered upon them by grifters like the Bachmann family.

          • terry

            I know this is not technically what is being talked about but it does seem to be pertinent to what you said….based on that same sex marriages are ok…special protections also mean special exclusions, since there is nothing to make them as a group different then they should also be able to marry who they want…no matter what group they are in.

          • David

            That yelling-”Fire”-in-a-theater analogy that we were all taught in school says that unless there is a fire in a theater, you can't just go out and yell “Fire”.

            When you actually meant to “RID” yourself of a minority that disagrees with your opinion.

            Maybe you and the “Ducks” went to the same institutions of lower learning, and then day dreamed when in class instead of soaking up the learning being offered.

            The only one who's rights were affected here were Phil's first amendment right to free speech. He threatened no body in giving an honest answer to a question. He was the one who was fired for something he said.

        • Mary J

          You don't even know what “free speech” means, do ya Chuck? A television network can fire someone for any reason.

      • kasey

        called a loophole….they signed the contract as a family. not as individuals

      • David Brinson

        13th amendment. They can leave any time they want … A contract describes terms of employment, it cannot coerce someone to work. Now if you have already received payment or the employer incurs damage related to your breaking the contract you may be liable. But A&E fired Phil. The family has a strong case that their contracts were all broken when A&E terminated Phil's contract.

        • AdmiralJ

          David, do you know what the 13th amendment is? It abolishes slavery and involuntary servitude. Just how does that apply to a contract with a network over a reality TV show? Phil has a right to say what he believes, but when that speech harms the business that has employed him, then that business has the right to protect itself. Firing Phil was within it's rights for what he said. Remember, it wasn't just what he said about gays, it also included a disparaging comment about blacks. Remember that is what got Paula Deen fired. Nothing different here with Phil.

          Phil must go.

          • David Brinson

            Hey AdmiralJ. Read what I said please. I didn't say they couldn't fire him, I said the Robertsons had the right to leave.

            The Robertson family cannot be forced by the contract to do a single day of work for the company if they decide not to. The 13th amendment most definitely applies.
            ——————
            Another thing: his comment about blacks was not disparaging either, it was complementary. He was saying that civil rights era blacks had pride and character, and they weren't asking for the free handouts that were later pushed on them by the politicians.

      • Brian Xavier

        Willy already has a show-'Buck Commander’ on OLN. I'm guessing that OLN executives would dance a freakin’ jig to get Duck Dynasty's market share.

        • AdmiralJ

          Bucksnort1967, snort on this. The OLN network is not carried on nearly as many cable networks as is A & E. Even if the “Ducks” moved to a different network, they would not have the size audience they enjoy on A & E. And let me say this about A & E, they will be around long after the “Duck” show has gone off the air. LOOOOONG After.

      • 1bigrepublican

        Feeling someone up and quoting the Bible in an expression of religious freedom are two totally separate things. Nobody was harassed or assaulted. He was asked a question, and he answered it in his opinion along with the reason why that is his opinion. The Bible says it's a sin like any other sin, that is all he basically said. When Phil was a young man, sodomy was AGAINST THE LAW! Kinda like pedophilia and beastiality still is, but then again with everyone being politically correct and turning their back on God, even that may soon be legal. Being moral is NOT politically correct. ….Silly Moron, Dicks are for Chicks!

        • DaveW

          HA HA HA HA HA. Just go ahead and die. Your opinions are stuck in the 1800's as well. Guess how many people in the bible were also gay and lied about it not to get burned at the stake, because SOME people didn't realize some people are programmed that way. MORAL? HA HA HA. Shut the f#$ up. The bible is a tale of fantasies and fables written by hypocrites to control the masses like your dumb ass who can't think for themselves.

          • Concerned

            Why is it that when someone disagrees like DaveW, they have to resort to dropping the “F” bomb. You can state your opinion while still being civil without being angry.

          • DaveW

            It's clearly the language that morons and uneducated followers understand.

            Freedom of Speech: The legal means to say almost
            anything you want. Meaning that as private citizens, we’re allowed to
            say nearly anything (with a few exceptions of course) that we want
            without fear of legal prosecution for it.
            Unless I’ve missed something, Mr. Robertson faces no legal ramifications for what he said. That’s what freedom of speech means. Freedom of speech does not mean we can say anything we want without ramifications for what we say from our peers or employers.

          • Concerned

            You are right Dave. We are afforded the right to free speech. It is a God given right. In my opinion when one starts swearing because they feel that it is the only language that “morons” understand isn't really true. It is understood as someone that has automatically built up a wall to were both sides can't communicate intellectually for both parties to see each other's view point and discuss. We all have views that not every one agrees on and that is ok. We can disagree without having such anger expressed. We never will make headway with anger. It never solves anything. It just closes doors of opportunity to see how the other person sees things.

          • DaveW

            Dave your a freak gays have been around since time . But God loves all but doesn't like it . you ever seen 2 gay animals?
            were not hating anyone its the act of what there doing your ass is there to get rid of body waste not made to stick stuff in there . that why there is man and woman . guess where aids came from mmmm

          • DaveW

            Dirk, THat was exaclty my point. Gays have existed from the beginning of time, whether people want to believe it or not. How many gay people wrote peices of the bible? The only way it would get publsihed if it was full of falsehoods and general statements. How many “religious leaders” get arrested a year for being gay pedophiles. The sexual part of being gay comes second, being emotionally attracted to a type of person is what defines being gay or straight, or a combination. How many people are publically out of the closet now compared to 100 years ago, or 1,000 years ago? Do you think there is something in the water recently, or has it always been like that?

          • randomedude32

            It usually doesn't end well when society starts accepting homosexually. The romans for instance considered it a great pride for a man to “conquer” another man, note calling someone a man's man is calling them gay. Anyways before the Christians took it over it wasn't unusual for a man of high power to forcibly castrate a young boy then marry him as a wife. Another interesting note emperor Justinian was able to make Homosexuality illegal said that they caused earthquakes. What city is known for being extremely accepting for homosexuality and for earthquakes.

          • Dirk Dewes

            Dave there has been thieves and murderers since the dawn of time but that doesn't make it right . some people are attracted to animals sexually does that make it right . If you believe in God at all the bible becomes a reference to follow for what God wants if we try to live for that I'm sure we are better people . We either believe in God or not standing in the middle doesn't work . I don't know about you but a woman's looks and beauty and how she smell etc make it a normal thing because in the beginning there was man and then woman Its the only way to procreate leaving out the mad scientist . if you watch all the animals its the same way . if your attracted to another man or woman maybe you have more the other hormones than the other . I don't know . I do know and it feels right to me natural which it talk about in the bible. there are so many people that say oh I believe in God but ill make up what ever rules suit me and the heck with what God thinks theres people that like to steal and may think its normal but can't be right think to do . the reason why things have changed now because there is much more lawless now than ever before God said that would happen years ago . now we have the internet which is the devils playground the Media which is brainwashing us all .so how many more rules or laws will they pass against God .
            Its coming my friend the world as we speak is crashing around us fast . Id rather live by the spirit and what my conscience tell me . You ever hear them make a big deal out of a man an woman getting married . the world can have the crap going on out there Ill pass you all can have it . much more peace best I can for God and his rules much more peaceful . Im sure if we directed our thought to what the bible teaches us instead of the lust money material craziness going on now. which is a runaway train in to abiss.
            thats why we have prayers nice talking to you dave

          • DaveW

            ha, Yep – let's direct our thoughts to the Bible. Yep, maes perfect sense. I am so glad you enlightened me. While I am at it, I will buy a repair manual to a 1920's car to work on my modern car. Same thing, right? HOLY SHIT. GO hit yourself with your old “life manual” book and realize how ironic that is.

          • Dirk Dewes

            awesome dave you can live by what ever means suits you free world here right ? oh i forgot maybe not because the government will turn you into there puppet . Or you can live life for God without the bible or maybe the big bang theory .
            I sure how unique the body works and the planet has an atmosphere an air we breath water food etc it just happened from some atoms hitting together. Im sure you will let your conscience be your guide assuming you have one .Oh if you happened to have a more current manual to life please enlighten me . or we really just running around like a chicken with our head cut off

          • DaveW

            HA HA HA. Yep, grab your manual and burn it. OPEN YOUR EYES and view the world as it is today not anything “B.C.” Congrats, people liek you and your bible thumping ways prevent people from THINKING.

          • Dirk Dewes

            Really dave nice you have all the answers I have open my Eyes the world is in deep SHIT your governments around the world are collapsing the USA is right there Martial Law is coming soon because you have a bunch greedy self serving freaks with money and lust for control . money which is the root of all evil . can you see any of that dave ?
            what are you doing to change that Dave I'm curious what ever it is is not going to be good enough because if you get in the way they will just kick your ass . they predicted this AD.. thats sound like a lot of love for anyone and humanity . so tell me what do you aspire to as a fix for all that do you have a magic wand for that I don't . cheers my friend I love you the same no hard feeling over hear Ive enjoyed the opposition

          • DaveW

            I'll just buy more bibles and start throwing them at people. THAT SHOULD FIX EVERYTHING! HA HA HA HA HA. GO jump off a bridge.

          • 1bigrepublican

            Wow, telling me to die for my beliefs? Just cant stand it when someone else doesn't agree with your sinful ways? You should burn me at the stake for my beliefs… Right??? The God today is the same God from the 1800's so his teachings don't change with the “times”. You can run from God but He still sees you and knows your name, even if you don't know His. The truth is it doesn't matter how you are “programed”, God wants us all to ABSTAIN! (1 Corinthians 7, 32-35) BTW, I can think for myself just fine but you, sir, don't know anything about the Bible or Christianity but one day God will look you in your eyes and you will hit your knees and know the truth. I hope he has mercy on your pitiful ignorant soul.

          • DaveW

            have you seen this invisible “GOD”? Kids know SANTA doesn't exist usually by the age of 9. However, we continue to believe the stories about this non existent invisible “guiding light myth”, or book of fables written by gay monks from a millennium ago … PS, There is no SANTA. There si no ONE god for everyone. Everyone “believes” in a slightly different version of what a God is, so is there ONE, 4,0000, or ZERO? Don't quote the very thing to me that is clearly as fake as a

            Aesop's Fables children book to me, because it is guiding YOUR waste of an existence.

          • 1bigrepublican

            I have a very happy existence! I'm offended that you'd think otherwise…. Let me clue you in on a little something. THERE IS A GOD, ONE TRUE GOD. And even if you aren't smart enough to believe in Him, He believes in you. Miracles
            DO happen. I have witnessed them. God speaks if you listen and open your heart to Him. Comparing God to Santa Claus is totally ignorant and the Bible wasn't written by gay monks. I'd stick around and have a battle of wits with you but I can tell you come totally unarmed and I'm just plain tired. As for other folks reading this post, I shared the gospel but you cant fix stupid. Goodnight! ;)

          • DaveW

            ONE TRUE GOD huh? Did you meet him at a Book signing at Barnes and Noble? Did he autograph your bible? Have you ever seen this invisible man? Was he standing next to Santa? I cannot beleive how many people believe in this shit.

          • Daniel

            Mr Freeman People like Dave W & plebian12 are not worth arguing with. They are blinded by the truth. They do not believe in what they can not see, that's their beliefs, they want us to quit bashing gays just because we feel different. Well Davie boy I got a question for you? I will quote to you what some mythical bigot wrote 5 hours a go. we continue to believe the stories about this non existing, invisible “guiding light myth” or book of fables written by gay monks from a millennium ago. So with this I say. I never met GOD at Barnes & Nobles. But I never meet you pin head there neither. So am I to believe what you wrote was not really you but some gay monks 5 hours ago? Well it sounds to me you just bashed the gay community

          • noleyfs

            look you seem like your mad at the world everybody sees you don't believe in anything do you believe in love if not I feel very sorry for you but I know something save me when I was in NAM fighting for this country see when I got back from over there I drank like a fish to forget what I did and what this country did to me 1 day I was siting a park and something I don't know if was god or somebody telling me that this was not the way to live so I went to the VA hospital and they helped get back on my feet and I have not had a drink since then maybe it was god or maybe it was in my mind but it changed me into a better that I am today becouse

          • DaveW

            Stay away from the VA hospital they are making you crazy. WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT STORY HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING HERE?

          • Aaron

            DaveW the air you breath is invisible you cant see it, but you breath it it's keep you alive God is there, just like the air
            so if the air is not there then you are dead

          • DaveW

            PERFECT ANALOGY! Comparing god to hot air. PERFECT. Science fact are different than religious prophets. NICE TRY though.

          • Concerned

            Dave, I am sorry that you feel God is not real because you have never seen him. The air is invisible but it is still there. The air brings life, so does God. Have you ever experienced hearing a testimony of how God has brought someone from death to life? I am here to tell you that he does. The events in the Bible are real life stories of people just like us that are not perfect that have befallen sin. It isn't out choice to want to sin but it is our lot as humans. God doesn't like sin but he loves the sinner- you and me. So, he knew that we needed someone to pull us out of this terrible situation so he sent his son to make a way for us to get out of our sinful nature and have life that is filled with hope, joy, peace and love. It is what we all want. God is the only one that can do it for us and the way to real life is through his son Jesus Christ. Take time when you get a chance and go to “I am 2nd” on your search engine and listen to the different stories of how God helped people get a life filled with hope, joy, peace, and love just like you and me.

          • DaveW

            You got one thing right. You are a very sorry individual. A sorry excuse for a human. You have to resort to an ancient book for guidance in 2013. Pat yourself on the back for believing in the Original version of “Believing everything you see on TV”. (TRANSLATION, because you won't “GET IT”, is believing everything you read in the Bible … ) Written by the original FOX NEWS Team I think.

          • Concerned

            I am sorry that you feel that way Dave. One thing I would like to share with you is that God loves you just as much as he loves me. I pray that when the time is right for you that you will understand. I also pray that he will send someone in your path that will be a living example of God and his love free of hate anger. Be on the look out because he will send someone. It might even be me. I pray God's blessings on you and your family. Merry Christmas. :-)

          • DaveW

            Great. Santa loves in that case. See you in the looney bin.

          • Plebian12

            Concerned is not the problem tho Dave. Let those people be. We don't need to fight them on that issue. We should look to the book the love so much, teach real history beside it and put it in its proper context. For too long it's been a safe haven for these prejudices. Jesus refutes the Old Testament and all this stuff with it. He'd be embrassing gay people.

          • Fag Hater

            See how mad DaveW is. If he really didn't believe in God, he wouldn't be so upset. God wants us all near to him, so he draws DaveW as well. The demons influencing him just don't want to let go of him. True atheists don't get angry. You can't get upset about something that doesn't exist. Talk about a looney, huh?

          • freeman

            Hey davew, One believes in God by faith. I never saw George Washington, but I know he was the father of our country. Get over your bigotry of Christians and learn more about Christianity. The Bible is a guide to eternal life, one that you can choose if you want to, unlike obamacare that is forced upon you. If you are non repentent of just 1 sin, you cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven. That is why Christians can embrace homosexuals as gods children, but their behavior cannot be condoned and therefore it is our christian duty to point this out and pray they repent and change their sinful ways.

          • DaveW

            OH MY GOD. You are THAT stupid. George Washington clearly existed. He was human. This is like saying I never saw President OBAMA with my own eyes, so he must be a figment of my imagination. HOLY SHIT, you are truly a special kind of stupid.

          • freeman

            Jesus is God and was seen by many. Read the Bible and find this out for yourself.

          • DaveW

            “Read the bible” (Aesop's Fables) is your guidance to me? AND THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

          • freeman

            If you won't read it for yourself, have somebody you trust who knows the Bible tell you, show you or read it to you. I will pray for you.

          • DaveW

            Pray for me and I will ask Santa to get you a present as well!

          • Robin

            Don't waste your breathe on these people

          • Elizabeth Tew

            Do y ou ever go back and read the things you post. So much hatred and meaness comes out of your mouth. You are what you profess to hate. A mean person with no tolerance for anyone but yourself. If you want to see a true bigot I suggest you go look in the mirror.

          • DaveW

            OH SHUT THE F&*)K UP “Ms. I'm holier than you are so I am going to TRY to flip the script and call out someone else. ” Sit down with these other old school morons and pretend to be a bible -thumper bigot at the same table .. it's over there .. in the 17th century.

          • Elizabeth Tew

            This post just proved my point. Hatred spewing with every breath you take. It has to be exhausting to be so bitter and mean spirited. I believe we call it practicing what you preach.

          • DaveW

            Oh wait .. let me say it too .. THIS PROVES MY POINT. Bigots call others out, not themselves. ALL THE TIME. Liars, Cheaters and Frauds all call themselves religious when it is convenient. People who kill gays, blacks, etc, always blame THE BIBLE or other religious CULT-LIKE rhetoric. JUST DIE ALREADY.

          • Elizabeth Tew

            Your mother must be very proud of you. Well not really. Love and kindness must have been in short supply in the home you grew up in. It shows in your attitude and your language. Does it help anyone to add hatred upon hatred.

          • DaveW

            CLOSE YOUR LEGS. Unike your mindless drivel, apparently coming out of of every orifice and dripping from your likely diseased vagina roast beef flaps … SHUT THE F#$K UP. You not knowing much is quite clear, and have to resort to school yard “YOUR MOMMA” child like behavior. SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH and shove the cork of a bible in your twat. I am quite accomplished and everyone is very proud, thank you for your utmost concern.

          • Fag Hater

            You sad waste of space. It must be scary being a lousy atheist. You're gunna die one day and you will be mortified of death, then, you will meet God, and the knashing and wailing will commence when truth is flooded over you.

          • DaveW

            I assure you, I will not see a GOD, YOUR GOD, my GOD, or Devil or any sort of fantasy creature will await me…. This must be great to be tripping on acid 24/7.

          • blue

            santa did exist and was originally german, you don't know as much as you think , and spreading negative comments due to your belief could be received the same as phil from duck dynasty. we are all judged here and now by either negative or the positive words we decide to voice to others. in the end its how we have lived and treated others.

          • DaveW

            OF COURSE I DO. Is the North Pole located in Germany? I am German and well aware. THANKS FOR THE LESSON in unrelated posts. NO. I'm talking about the every year or the constant belief of juvenile minds, no matter how old the person is, believing what the masses tell them to believe. IE, the book of fake pompous lies and guidance, the BIBLE. (Pick a version, a religion, or a language … all are pretty silly in most modern aspects.)

          • really concerned

            davew it is people like you that I feel really sorry for. I am sure you are one of those Obama supporters that real good christain working folk support.

          • DaveW

            Yea, die for your beliefs. Isn't that how religions were born? Making a group of “holier than though” individuals who kill off people who don't follow their beliefs that there is some sort of invisible higher being? I stopped believing in Santa when I was 9. Everyone else is living in a fantasy world if you believe you will literally meet your maker … I think that is called a CULT. How much Kool-Aid did you drink at your last meeting?

          • randomedude32

            The Bible says that homosexual SEX is sin not being homosexual. By your logic we shouldn't allow some people to drive at all seeing that some people are genetically wired to be addicted to alcohol. We shouldn't let them drive because they're wired to be drunk; drunk driving kills. Thus they shouldn't drive as it would hurt people.
            My point: it isn't how you're wired, it's about you're choice. We aren't robots.

          • DaveW

            The Bible = Aesops Fables. Get over yourself. THINK for yourself. Don't believe every silly work of fake guidance written hundred of years ago .. ANY argument that starts with “WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS” is instantly going to be an empty thought, it shows you are a follower and not a thinker. CONGRATS. “THE BIBLE” also says lvoe thy neighbor. NO WHERE does it say “only if you want to ” .. ha ha ha ..

          • randomedude32

            I care for you my neighbor I really do. However do you ever think that I chose the Bible because I Like that philosophy. Another thing Christian aren't scientist. Look at the branches of science, almost all are built on the shoulders of Christians. Physics: Newton Modern Medicine: Pastuer. Another thing is a God has to exist or life cannot. Everything strives for equilibrium. Cells actively avoid it. This is Supernatural phenomena. A DIETY is needed for that I love the Christian one so I follow it

          • DaveW

            CARE FOR NEIGHBOR – keep your religious nut-job belief in YOUR HOUSE.

          • randomedude32

            so hate is okay in your house?

          • DaveW

            HA HA HA. Nice try.

          • randomedude32

            well in my view apathy is hate. Evil flourishes when righteous men do nothing, My question is in all your think for yourself and “don't follow the Bible it will hold you down” mindset. how many have you helped. How many lives are better because of you

          • DaveW

            I volunteer to help more type of people than many spend “reading the bible” in a week.

          • randomedude32

            so you believe that you should volunteer, but you criticize a book that promotes helping others?

          • DaveW

            The “Bible” apparnetly critisizes others if you are using that as a crutch to enforce your belief (ALSO by the invisible man in the sky) that people should not accept people who are not like them. NICE SPIN ATTEMPT though. Really nice try, although it didn't work.

          • randomedude32

            Where on earth does anything in the BIBLE CONDONE THAT?

          • DaveW

            MY POINT EXACTLY. Ask your bible buddies who are killing gays .. apparently they think it's in there.

          • randomedude32

            Who said anything about killing, that is in the Old Testament.
            New Testament is mercy over law.

          • DaveW

            HA HA HA. Yeah, sure it is. Who decided on a NEW testament? Someone who wanted CHANGE? a group? GASP!

            It's called IRONY. Just like people in 2013 “guiding their life” by fictitious fables written thousands of years ago in a dusty by gay monks who were told to write “good stories” book. IRONY. LOOK IT UP.

          • randomedude32

            So you believe the Bible was written by monks told to write good stories. What is thing that you call fact that will be considered fairy tales in the future.

          • DaveW

            People like you. People who “used to believe in this Bible theory.” I can't wait to tell my grandkids stories about bigots using the bible as a crutch for their actions. Religion is a crutch for weak minded people and people who can't make their own intelligent decisions.

          • randomedude32

            I take responsibility for all of my actions, but ask yourself. Bad people exist people who exist to twist things. They will always do evil but ask yourself. If i ruled the world would my philosophy stop evil people from doing evil. Think realistically you would be omniscient omnipotent omnipresent. Their would be people that loved you, but for everyone of them there would be a Hitler their would be a Stalin. How would handle that. And i still believe in the Bible. Also I must apologize for some of my earlier comments they were rude and nasty.

          • Ben

            Listen dumbass, all I'm saying is that if you're going to argue about what the bible says, why don't you take the penis out of your mouth long enough to read it so you know what it actually says. That way you can formulate an educated argument and stop sounding like such an idiot. The New Testament does away with the old law. It's in the Bible LOOK IT UP!
            As far as your deviant sexual desires, I could care less. I just don't know how you could look at a mans hairy sweaty ass and saggy balls and say “mmmmm I want some of that”. I prefer a pair of big breasts and a vagina. But whatever dude, that's on you. You just sound like a moron in your arguments because you don't know what the f**k you're talking about so ALL YOU CAN DO IS TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!
            Pick up a book and educate.

          • DaveW

            Been doing that for years, after reading (FOR RESEARCH ONLY!) the bible and have been preaching the ridiculousness of it. Who said I never picked it up? Not I, or that's right – it was your assumption. (They had a sale in the FICTION SECTION of Barnes and Noble one day apparently so I picked up a Bible to entertain myself). I have plenty of education, the question is, is yours solely based off of a book of lies? Being gay, or straight, isn't about looking at your wife or girlfriends dripping roast beef of a loose vagina that smells like trout, or hairy balls on a man, clearly you must be emotionally attracted first. Honestly, I bet most gay men were NOT initially “attracted” to a penis. This is not how it works. PUT DOWN your ridiculous book and look around you … Welcome to the modern life. We have cars, and you are allowed to think!

          • Ben

            Ha ha. You're funny. I'll take roast beef and trout any day over a hot dog smeared with dookie :)

            Do what you like. To each his own. I have my opinion and so do you…and so does Phil. He was just stating his opinion. Wasn't trying to push it in anybody or being ugly about it. I'm never going to believe and your never going to believe what I do. The thing is you're on here trying to push your beliefs and being an asshole to anybody that doesn't agree with you. Looks like most of the people that disagree with you were, at least, being somewhat polite. So just take it as that. Let people believe what they want. Some will be right in the en and some will be wrong. I believe that you will be on the wrong end. And you believe I will be on the wrong end. We won't know who's right until we die. So insttead of talking crap. Just keep your mouth shut and go on and live the way you want. Because when you start calling people red necks and idiots and calling the Bible a story book and saying God is Santa Claus, your argument loses all validity and nobody really give a shit what you say after that.

I will release you from being my bitch and you can go put the penis back in your mouth or butt or wherever turns you on. Now remember, nobody cares what I have to say so yiu aren't allowed to reply.

          • randomedude32

            The New Testament is the writings of the followers of Jesus about His life and there journeys anyways is was God himself that wanted that change. He wanted it because his righteousness required a payment for sin. I also kind don't understand your question though I hope I answered it .

So now YOUR country is better than another? I know, let's create war and make death until we all believe the same thing. THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS (But which one?!) EXACTLY MY POINT. Go kill yourself.

            You sure are angry and it's hilarious! Your boyfriend must not have given you a reach around last night when he was behind you and you're mad about that. Say something else funny please!

          • DaveW

            Nope, not always mad. Quite the opposite. NICE TRY. Reverse psychology attempt? (Look it up.) Not gonna happen. I'm more amused by your arrogant self serving uneducated fucks, it is so damn entertaining to me to realize we have so many people stuck in a mind set a millennium ago. It is so easy to make money with so many of your ignorant fucks around, life is easy for me, thanks to morons like you. LOL

          • DaveW Hates Everybody

            Not mad?! This is too easy!! All I have to do us call you a faggott and you'll come unglued!! Ha ha!! How may keyboards have you gone through during this discussion section alone? I can see you sitting there banging on your keyboard and screaming at the screen calling me a mofo. If you're so fulfilled in your fabulous life then why are you taking so much of your valuable to mess with an ignorant guy like me? You can't help yourself. You can't walk away. I LOVE IT!! This is better than football! Ha ha. Do it some more. Your turn…go.

          • DaveW

            Again, REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY MUCH? If I am not mistaken (and I am not) you are equally as chatty Kathy. LOOK AT YOU GO! So cute, yet so retarded. I make most of my money sitting at my computer, it is easy to spend 20 seconds every few hours responding to dipshits who THINK they are upsetting me. Nope, nice try. YOU AS WELL, can look in the mirror, and not walk away either. POT, THIS IS KETTLE, HOW COPY?! Holy mother fucker you are a dumb shit. BY THE WAY, RETARD, you spelled FAGGOT incorrectly. GENIUS. My point is proven once more, get an education. IGNORANT people can't see current life, only rely on the book of fables that you believe in, and pay your pastor 10% of your pithy earning, so he can spread the word, rape little boys, and buy a Bentley. THAT'S normal…

          • DaveW's Too Cool

            Ha ha! Thank you DaveW! You just made me $20! My buddies bet me you wouldn't respond and I bet them $10 a piece that you would! We've even made a DaveW drinking game. Every time you curse – one shot. Every time you call someone stupid/ignorant – two shots. When you talk about religion – drink a whole beer. We've been getting drunk off of your stupid ass and fucking with you for 3 days. BTW sitting at a computer surfing fag porn doesn't qualify as much of a living. Honestly, and this is the truth, I don't care if one is gay or straight. I actually empathize with the inner struggle that a young person must go through when they realize the are “different”. We just saw what an asshole you were being to everybody and thought we'd fuck with you and you took the bait. You've been on here calling people ALL kinds of shit and can't stand being called anything yourself. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. What an enlightened individual you are. Alas, our ski vacation is over and we're heading out today (if you ski or board Big Sky Montana just got 30+ inches of fresh pow pow). We won't have anymore down time to mess with you anymore and quite frankly we are bored with your rhetoric. You're like a broken record. Go find another comment board to tell people how much you hate them. But one last final bet, we have a bet that you are on more than one board commenting and being a dick. The over/under is 5. I won't tell you how I bet. Can you please reply with a number so we can see who wins this bet. Also cuss all you want, we drank all the alcohol.
            Fuck you very much. Have a nice day.

          • DaveW

            SOOOO CUTE, juvenile and retarded you are (CHECK THE SPELLING, it's correct!) to make a frat boy uneducated drinking game out of a conversation. Typical trashy people. As they say, I didn't start the fire, you bible thumping two faced bigots did, many years ago .. funny, now, when YOU have a problem with it .. again,I am familiar with reverse psychology, so it's no shock you would try to put a spin on it, just look you put a spin on how god is against gays, ha ha ha .. FUNNY, that's not mentioned in the bible .. but you and your other moron friends and family belief in fairy tales in an extinct book published thousands of ago, translated into different testaments, to mean clearly different this depend on who is writing it. Surprised it's not in the fiction and fantasty section at Barnes and Noble. Please drink more and go skiiing, I would love to hear about how you tragically died. To be an asshole, to assholes (IRONICALLY) makes me the asshole? SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU TWO FACED RELIGIOUS ZEALOT. Look in the fucking mirror. Funny that you say I am the broken record, and not the bible thumping morons .. doubles standard much? Typical bigot! Just die now, impale whats left of your brain in a high in a high speed accident please. Nice try, I have no inner struggle, it's the religious morons who are trying to cope with someone else interpretation of an old book, so they can't make a decision by themselves. NICE DEFLECTION ATTEMPT, fucking idiot. I am sure your last words will be “Hold my beer, watch this.” Soon enough.

          • DaveW's Speedbumps

            Phil's back!

            Funny joke: What to homos call hemorrhoids?
            Speed bumps!!

            Ha ha!

          • DaveW

            Of course he is back, do you realize how much A&E makes in profit from dumb people buying branded Duck Dynasty gear? LOL It's about money, not anything else. Oh, I have a beard too. Bearded Homes +1 Idiotic stereotypes -1. Nice try though. LOL Dumb people are funny. You likely don't realize how many people blend into society that are gay, not all of us wear pink dreses and heels in public. I do not set off any ringing “gaydar” bells the way I carry myself. Your stereotype is a bit dated, and we know that .. most us us fly right under your nose without you realizing it. LOL

          • DaveW's Bored

            OH MY GOSH!! You officially are a pathetic individual. You proved me wrong. I was bet that if I posted anything in response, even after 5 days, you would respond. I bet $50 that NO WAY would you be heard from again. DAMNIT!! You lurker. You just cost me fifty bucks! I figured there was no way you would be coming back to a discussion that was this old. You love beating a dead horse. I should have known better. I hope you're happy. Oh well. Off to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl on Monday! Maybe you'll give us more drinking game ammo! Or maybe we'll see you there lurking all incognito in your straight guy disguise. Have a good one Davie!

          • I Heart Daveh

            On the contrary, thank you Mr. Dave. You made me $50. Keep it coming. I like taking this suckers money.

          • DaveW

            Humph, I made the original comment, and you replied, 10 times, define lurker again? Yeah, Just as with everything else you claim, it's a twisted hypocrite bigot mentality that you define as truth, is wrong. I also bet your mother said she loved you, right? You may wanna check that too. It appears that you, as well, are still commenting on this old thread .. so that makes up about the same?! Except I am not loosing sleep, or betting against myself here … The financial loss of idiots always amuses me. I think It's not incognito lurking as a straight guy, ha ha .. it's being “NOT” what you define, or stereotype as an obvious gay. I bet you interact with several gays a week without even knowing it. I know all types, professional football players, construction men, business men, many business owners, etc, that no one instantly pegs as gay. MOST of us are not the obvious flamboyant type. San Antionio, yep home of many gay cowboys, or cowboy wannabe's, Steers and Queers in Texas LOL … I bet there will be a lot of gays there … don't touch anybody there, I hear it's contagious. LOL

          • DaveW

            THE BIBLE … ha ha ha ha .. yeah, fake book of fake stories. Sooooo, you can have your cake, as long as you don't EAT it? What PLANET does that make sense on? So you can be gay, just not have sex? HA HA HA HA. This is RICH!

          • randomedude32

            Since when do the people you love has anything to do with sex. It's impossible for a homosexual to have sex with the opposite sex. However ether you equate love with sex or believe sex is a necessity of life. Either is terrible. I feel sorry for your kids
            Kid: Daddy do you love me.
            You: No I can't **** you so no
            And that is the best outcome. o-0

          • DaveW

            worst ineligible answer or reply ever. You're a f#$king moron. So a man can love a man in your would, but pretend that men don't have sex? What planet are you from?

          • randomedude32

            My best friend is a man sir. It is you who are unable to realize that love encompasses more than sex. Why does sex need to be brought into any relationship between men. It is you who from my view equates love with sex.

          • DaveW

            so SEX is only okay if you are a man with a women …? LOL SHIT YOUR MOUTH.

          • randomedude32

            if you love each other yeah. if you need extra pieces to make your “sex” it wasn't meant to be. if you need to put your johnson in a hole used to remove excrement and house digestive bacteria your “sex” shouldn't be.

          • DaveW

            LOL, Now that is rich LOL I can't believe how many people have managed to not kill themselves for being morons … I can't WAIT to here your opinion of a straight man taking a girl up the rear .. that isn't in the bible either .. GO!

          • randomedude32

            i think that is classified under “strange flesh”.

          • Matt

            Dave is a flaming liberal….and he knows why he is doing is sinful. That's why he bashes the bible and won't admit the existence of God.

          • DaveW

            HA HA HA … That's cute. Let me guess, another back woods hillbilly whose only guidance in life is what they read in an old book of stories? HA HA HA HA.

          • NYCircus

            Why all the hate DaveW? That seems to be the problem with the liberal population these days; If anyone disagrees with you, you go off the deep end. No one cares what you do in the privacy of your home. Get over yourself. Not everyone is going to agree with you. Deal with it. That's life. Ooops, did I offend you? I must not be able to think for myself…no wait, that would be on your end. I'm not offended by your lifestyle, I have my own opinion on it, kind of like Phil Robertson has his own opinion on it, wait kind of like you do. So what makes your opinion any better than anyone else's? You can voice yours, which seems to be in the minority here and yet when I voice mine, people like you bitch and moan. Are you for real?

          • DaveW

            OF COURSE intelligence is in the minority here, when people support this type of bigot. NO SHIT.

          • NYCircus

            I don't see him as a bigot at all. Actually you appear to be more of a bigot. You are very intolerant of others with differing views. You would do well to practice tolerance. Maybe meditation will help.

          • DaveW

            Of course you do dear, of course you do. Fight fire with fire in your case, blame the other person who is progressive. In the classic, “make peace and not war” move I see. Can't have a discussion, so you just make up accusations against the other party to make yourself appear educated … are you a politician by chance?

          • NYCircus

            No politician. I'm too honest for that. I am educated. I'm not accusing anyone of anything. Who are you referring to? I just can't get as stressed out as you over this. People are going to have their own opinions. Live and let live. There are people who don't agree with that lifestyle. It doesn't mean they're bigots or racists. It means they don't agree. That's it. So why get so upset because someone thinks differently? Especially when they're not hurting anyone?

          • DaveW

            Until they ARE hurting anyone, and encouraging people to provoke hate crimes towards gays and people who are different then you. IT IS HURTING PEOPLE. People die every day because they are attacked for being gay. learn some facts. Clearly you are not that educated.

          • NYCircus

            People die every day because they are attacked by crazy people. Not just gays. Stop playing the victim. Why should life be any easier for one population than another? People aren't going to tip-toe around you just because you're crying. You are going to have to suck it up and put on your big boy pants and go out into the world. Yes, people are going to say mean things to you and won't want to play with you but you're going to have to learn how to deal with it. One day you will be strong enough to let it roll off your back. You can do it!

          • DaveW

            OH PIPE DOWN. That was ONE example of what I was giving of how unintelligent people who are not forward thinkers indirectly contribute to hate crimes and death, whether it be race, religion or sexual orientation.

          • Aaron

            DaveW Forward thinkers here it's you who is promoting hate. if you want to be Gay that your choice, but it's a choice and one day soon, you will answer for your choice. Sin is Sin in God eyes and in the New Testament Romans charter 1 verses17 through 32
            take the time to read

          • JIMBO

            right on brother

          • DaveW

            Yeah, like I have your “Fake book of lies” to look up this nonsense. QUOTING THE BIBLE?! Please, More life lessons are to be learned from LEGALLY BLONDE 2.

          • Average Joe

            Dave, one day you will die and you can not prevent that. On that day, you will have no more smart ass answers. You will be on your knees listening. Good luck.

          • DaveW

            With .. uhm, let me guess … YOUR GOD?! SHUT UP. I hate you and your make believe shit.

          • DaveW

            Blah.

          • DaveW

            On my knees with YOUR GOD, or my neighbors god of Buhdda…. so many people to report to when I die! SHUT YOUR MOUTH with your make believe foolery and stop making an asshat out of yourself for believing these fables. I am sure no one respects you in real life.

          • nutz40

            Oh pipe down? your problem is that you continue with rage like a 2 year old. No one needs special protection unless they flaunt their fairyness in unsuitable places, how do those who commit battery upon you choose you as a victims. If by appearance I should be picked all the time with a slender shape, short mincing steps a small face little hands and feet, my kid sometimes calls me girlyman. It dont happen. If you are an aggressive homosexual proud to be out and flaunting your difference then you get push-back, sad but true. Clean up your own act instead or castigating others. and yes I think ther is enough circumstantial evidence to hypothesize that biological factors for some trump others in which case excoriating people who have been primed from the womb to be different is in its own way EVIL

          • DaveW

            FLAUNT THEIR FAIRYNESS?! So you are allowed to be who you are, if you are, IRONICALLY not allowed to be WHO YOU ARE? Spoken like a TRUE Christian! WHAT A FUCKING HYPOCRITE! NOPE, My attitude is acceptance. With the exception of people who spew hate towards others. NOT VERY “Holy” of ya is it? Sounds like a pretty hypocritical, two-faced and bigoted opinion of an arrogant, uneducated little troll; If you ask most people. Reversing your anger, on me? Nice try! Make the smart, modern guy appear to be, IRONICALLY, the one with the problem. YOU must be a religious nut and believe everything the pastor (child molester) tells you to believe! YOU ARE SO GULLIBLE! I advanced far in my life, because of the lack of intelligence, and reasoning, of trash like you. OH WAIT, Now *I* am casting others! SO EXPECTED! Shit the fuck up and just die.

          • DaveW

            Let me guess, the people who get raped are also “PLAYING THE VICTIM CARD”? Go to hell, since you believe in that nonsense.

          • Fag Hater

            not nearly enough are attacked. We need a war against you frikkin homos. I love anti-gun, liberal fag trash XD

          • Plebian12

            Robertson asks why dudes would want the “ass” etc. first of just so offensive anyway.

            Second, people should take the opportunity to educate him with an answer. Gay people don't choose that lifestyle. It's genetically assigned to them. The either choose to repress it or not. And I say why should they? What's the big deal?

          • Dirk Dewes

            the big deal is that offends God he says no to that . I may have been genetically born an alcoholic but it still would offend God . now you have a government that passes laws against Gods will we don't hate gays we don't like the acts against God . we still love them the same

          • Aaron

            you are not born Gay. its a choice one make. its not genetically assigned to you one day we all will stand before God and answer for our Sins No matter if you believe or not and from your post, you are the only one promoting Hate

          • DaveW

            HA HA HA – Oh, now it's a choice? I didn't get the memo. LOL

          • Tim

            So you chose to be heterosexual? So, if you wanted to, if you just woke up one day and decided to for some reason, you could be attracted to the idea of sucking a penis? Dude if thats true, youre already gay. And if its not, then obviously its not a choice.

          • Guest

            Homosexuality could be a choice for some, a birth defect for others.

          • mark williams

            You mean I could just wake up one day and decide I was gay? I don't think so. That being said… Jesus died on the cross for our sins and that's why we have the ” New Testament ” I pretty much believe that Jesus and god don't preach hate.

          • God

            You were born an idiot and it offends me!

          • leonard

            I dunno…It could be a birth defect.

          • John Tyler

            Genetically assigned? Wow, you must know something none of us neuroscientists or medical researchers has been able to discover. Tell me, what is the name of your discovery Dr. Plebian, please favor us with something you know that no other human on Earth has been able to prove? Or, could it be you are a pathological liar and complete fraud? hmmm…

          • Plebian12

            Not sure a scientist would respond so sarcastically and without a few citations to prove the point?

            But you're right to suggest that we have no conclusive proof. Yet we accept many working scientific theories all the time.

            In any event, the Hamer study was recently replicated with quite a lot of twin bothers. It seems like more evidence is emerging that biology plays a serious role here. Even so, social factors are always important of course. Of course then there's the animal studies. Simply put mice with the gay gene turned gay. The others didn't.

            But I'd say that much of the public remains unaware that genetics probably helps determine if you are gay or not. I'm sure many gay people know this already tho. As for me, if they can believe God tells them homosexuality is evil while I can rely on the most recent study to believe that genes play a role.

            See Sanders et al, Genes and Male Sex Orientation

          • Plebian12

            And John, read your other posts. So how many specialities do you have? A urologist, a neuroscientist, what else? Could be possible. But probably you are really the lair.

            Also, you comment on two types of stories. Lots of them. 1. Obama and politics. 2. Homosexuality

            Huh? Whats all the fascination with gay people?

          • leonard

            Are you saying it's a birth defect? Because that's the only other choice besides choosing to be that way.

          • Guest

            Are you an idiot by chance?

          • DaveW

            Well educated, thanks LOL .. Let's throw anger at the one who apparently accepts others as human and lets people carry on as themselves with no judgement, UNLESS you are judging others … OR, support the idiot bible thumpers who think it's still 100 B.C. ? STFU.

          • Plebian12

            Should we tolerate intolerance? Your statement and those like you have no basis in reason. That's a logical fallacy.

          • butterflyinoh

            The Only thing that could help Dave is the one he calls a fantasy and fairy tale; one day people like him will see the TRUTH…coming out of the sky in Great glory…then they'll be NO denying.

            Meditation might help but institutionalized would be better.

            I agree 100%

          • Ryan

            Not murdering someone was a law in the 1800's too. Since its old it should be changed. That's your logic? That's thinking for myself by the way. Its easier for you to say its a fantasy rather than man up and be responsible.

          • DaveW

            Whose responsibility? Mine to be a normal citizen and not repress who other people are? GO JUMP OFF A CLIFF. Do not quote your book of lies to me; that's the who principle of this religious tyranny – to force those beliefs onto others .. sound familiar?

          • Randy Coombes

            People in the bible were gay and lied about it so they wouldn't be burned at the stake? You obviously haven't read the bible. Nowhere in the bible does it identify a “gay” person hiding their lifestyle. Name one example, I dare you. However, in the account of Lot it does mention the young and old men of the city of Sodom who camped out in front of Lot's house to demand that Lot turn over 3 men (angels who appeared before Lot) who had entered Lot's home so that they could “come to know them”…which means they wanted to have sex with them….Lot offered up his two daughters who were virgins and the men of Sodom were infuriated at the prospect of having sex with two women…they wanted the men for their own sexual gratification thus we get the term “sodomy” today derived from the city of Sodom. Lot and his family had to leave the city in fear for their lives because the homosexuals were determined to have the men that entered into his home and would have killed anyone in their path in order to satisfy their unnatural desire. God ended up destroying Sodom and Gomorrah because of the wickedness in their heart.
            In your world the bible may be just a bunch of fantasy to control the masses but archeological records prove that Sodom and Gomorrah were wiped off the face of the earth with no earthly explanation other than it once existed and then the cities and their inhabitants vanished.

          • DaveW

            HOLY SHIT. NO SHIT, NO ONE WAS MENTIONED AS GAY – that's my very exact point you illiterate moron. No one mentioned officially in text back then, but it was going on then just as it is now .. AGAIN, for the love of YOUR fake “GOD”, referanceing the Bible is a F'ing joke. It's full of mindless drivel designed to control you morons.

          • reci

            The problem seems to be that most or a majority of americans and stuck in time and use their what they call faith to justify situations, we as americans don't like the truth which is that the world is changing and we have to make an attempt to change with it, noone is saying that we have to like or understand what someone is or does; it and old saying we use to use in the military “Lead follow or get the hell out of the way”, these tv show personalities have nothing better to talk about than making things worser than they really are same foes for the politicians they're just being some of you alls voices and getting rich off of it while some just continue to add fuel and make them richer, what do we get out of it beside a post, as for the Robertson's they will be just fine you can bet your ass on that just remember back to Mr. Jimmy Swaggart , as long as we remain a country divided we won't respect one anothers’ opinion

            Dear Guest – Clearly you are the idiot who agrees you should take down to people who are different then you. Welcome to the 2000's. Put the Bible down and look at life.

          • David

            The BIBLE is NOT!! a lie! Besides, I don't remember reading that there was a stake in Sodom or Gomorrah. But did that stop God from creating the fire that consumed the people of both cities? No!

          • DaveW

            Of course it is. Have you personally interviewed all of the fake characters in that book, and got the whole story, of each of those characters? PLEASE! Harry Potter is more believable. stop being so gullible. Religion is a crutch for weak minded people.

          • DaveW

            OF COURSE the Bible is a lie. Book of fables designed to keep the masses from tyranny. Silly David, fables are for children.

        • falseprophet123

        • Plebian12

          Home sexuality was quite common in Ancient Greece. Guess who was a Greek Jew?Paul of Tarsas a New Testament author. Jesus asked us to put aside the old testament laws in favor of his ways. The anti-gay stuff is Old Testament.

          Seems like they select the stuff the want to follow. Old Testament forbids long hair for example.

          Wow, DaveW, get a grip on life. Believe in what you want, but all that hatred is clearly gleaning from somewhere deep within you. Get a grip on that before it eats you alive.

      • Fag Hater

        you are a cunt

        • DaveW

          You are clearly not highly educated. LOL This is cheaper than HBO. I think I will cancel my subscription and just listen toy all of the DUCK DYNASTY loving hillbillies on here. SO FASCINATING how people view themselves who have no grasp on reality. Feel free to commit suicide.

      • J. Satterfield

        That's not a comparable situation. Now if you were at a bar after work, and somebody asks you what you thought about the lady in accounting, you replied and her friend heard you.
        Now she runs to her friend and said “Dave said he thinks you're _________” Then we'd see the lady in accountings maturity level were she either A. Gets mad at you and goes to the boss with a campaign to get you fired. B. Says “Who cares what Dace thinks”. Or C. Looks up your address in the payroll database and comes over and jumps your bones!
        A. – She's a immature B. – She's mature and C. – Only happens in your dreams.

        • DaveW

          Contractual compliance.

    • eggomanic

      I never watched Duck Dynasty but whatever network picks it up.. should also grab the Walking Dead too. A&E is a joke.

      • Cousineddy

        Walking Dead is on AMC…

        • bigmoose015

          They are under the e corporate umbrella as A&E. Same with History and a few more networks.

        • eggomanic

          They are both owned by the Hearst Corp.

    • CaptainUSA

      Hope they get their own format. No “Networks” are cool.

  • G. Baird

    I was wondering what all of the hype was about so I went online looking for info on the actual interview. I have to say that I do not agree with the gay agenda, but I truly found Robertson's comments to be crude and offensive. I couldn't quite believe what I was reading! As a woman, I was thoroughly offended by what he said! He's an idiot and has no right to represent the rest of us Christians. His attitude was definitely not Christ-like. I don't know where he gets off acting like he's so righteous. He disgusts me! I'd be willing to bet that A&E banned him simply because of the way he phrased his comments. It sickened me and I'm glad A&E banned him. I can't believe how many people are defending him.

    • Terry

      You say you are a Christian? I be what sickened you was Robertsons stand on homosexuality?????? If you ARE a Christian then I suggest you read your bible!

      • AGV

        I agree with you Terry. If God is not tolerant about homosexuality then why should Christians be. Remember the ” What would Jesus do” saying?

        • Ew

          Jesus would probably be hanging out with everyone Christians are persecuting. Have you not read your bible. It speaks more of Jesus’ dislike for the church and religion because of people like you than it does of homosexuality. It speaks more of his love of humanity. He would not be tearing down others to make his points. He would leading and teaching in a loving Christ like manner. Whether or not people are in line with your beliefs God and Jesus don't want your judgment passed upon them rather a heart of grace. So many Christians take the bibles references to be Christ-like too literally and seem to think its Christ-like to be judgmental. I'm sure you're all quite familiar with the scripture.

          • happy42xxx

            Jesus had a dislike for the Church? You are really an idiot if you say that – first of all there was no church – the jews had the prophets and the Tora…Also you show your ignorance by implying Jesus did not mind sin – he abhors sin and even told the whore “to never commit this sin again” after he saved her from being stoned…so I would suggest you learn to be less ignorant (if that is possible) before you spout off about things which you obviously have no knowledge of

          • Ew

            Thanks for proving me right. You had the perfect chance to teach the word of God but you chose rather to put me down. Jesus would have been the teacher in this situation. How Christ-like was your response? Stop using the bible as a weapon.

          • mike A

            yes Jesus did mingle with the sinners, but when he did he would always tell them not to sin anymore. Jesus was sent by the father to forgive sins and he took upon his death, but he didn't condem the old testament, but came to fulfill the old testament. The Bible is used to teach and enlightened people by giving many examples and teachings. But there are many books of the bible condem homosexuality, but the message given condem the acts, Genesis, and Cornithians give examples of this. But the Lord Jesus will always love you no matter, but he wants to forgive those who follow this act, if not you spend eternity in hell, this is supported in the New testament and Old testament.

          • Ew

            Thank you Mike for your response. I was hoping someone would understand that this is the right way to respond to what I wrote. Responses in hate are the wrong way to share the word of God which is honestly what Phil was trying not to do. I see so many Christians slamming others because they disagree with someone or the other person has different views. My point in all this was that no matter what Jesus would not use the approach of anger but love. I know his message would be that homosexuality is a sin but at least he would teach them why rather than cast them out and call them names. Unfortunately Christians often tend to treat homosexuals with hate. Phil had it right when he said its not for him to judge its for the Almighty to do. Jesus loved us so much he died on the cross for our sin. We all sin. Sin is a sin is a sin. He didn't die for some sin but ALL sin.

          • GoldenBoy

            Umm…have you read the New Testament? If so, are you reading it in romantic way? Jesus probably was the most offensive in all the Bible! Yes he loves people, but if you love, then hate is a necessary consequence. Example? If you love babies, then you must hate abortion. Jesus hates sin BC he loves truth.

          • GoldenBoy

            Why does everyone want to soften the bible? Yes we are to speak with love, respect, and grace, but we do not mince our words, and water down our speech. Jesus never minced words, and he never softened his message because of sensitive people.

          • Melissa Ford Showalter

            Correct! So many ugly, judgement people claiming to be Christians.

        • Melissa Ford Showalter

          When did God tell you this? This is exactly what makes my blood boil, those that profess to know what God says. That's exactly why we have so many different churches in this country!

    • Skipper24

      Excuse me but Phil merely pointed out the absurdity of equating anal sex with heterosexual sex.

      • Melissa Ford Showalter

        And his employer fired him just as mine would fire me if I voiced my personal opinions at work.

    • Freedomofspeech

      Bottom line he was railroaded!!!! A&E was MORE than aware of his stance …they set him up! Who gives a c#%& what he said …suspending Phil was clearly a platform to send a strong message from LGBT to the rest of the world!

      Let everyone voice their OWN beliefs without punishing people.

      What a joke!!!

      • Melissa Ford Showalter

        Maybe he signed a contract that stated he would not say anything that reflected badly on the network. Take a gun into work someday and see how well the 2nd amendment holds up there.

    • Darren

      They are just a bunch of red necks with money and biggots ,, AE TAKE THEM OFF THE AIR CANCEL WHO CARES

    • Dan Sumner

      Like just about 85%. So take your MINORITY view and take a walk. Lots of people do not like DD. But then I do not like Biker shows. But I do not get upset when they voice their opinions and curse and swear.

    • erik_t

      Do you want to everyone who has ever made offensive remarks to be banned from television? Who gets to decide what is offensive or not? Think about it and then you'll understand the outrage.

      • Melissa Ford Showalter

        People get away with saying offensive things all of time. Look at Rush Limbaugh, the most offensive hate monger on the face of the earth but his employer is okay with his offensive language. A&E was not okay with Mr. R's choice of words.

  • Brian_Goettl

    Liberal orthodoxy teaches that humans are nothing more than higher evolved mammals, so why is the LGBT community offended by the comparison to beastiality? What right do they have to be intolerant and judgmental of the beastiality community. It sounds like bigoted beastialitiaphobia.

    • Stacia Madsen Shumway

      It wasn't even a comparison, the 2 issues were in different sentences. He started with homosexuality & it goes from there. Beastiality was in a different sentence along with sleeping around with various women, men, etc. (calling out the heterosexuals that don't follow the teachings in the Bible which is where his beliefs stem from). Then he lists a various of offenses to God that are in Corinthians paraphrasing them as somewhat of a laundry list. There was no actual comparison given, he did not say according to the writing that homosexuality was or was like beastiality which is the huge issue that keeps getting brought up by those who are “offended” by Phil's comments.

  • Cat

    You FIRED PHIL??? Kiss your ratings good bye. Duck Dynasty was my favorite show to watch. The fact that you were so ignorant to fire a man who had the balls to tell it like it is shows how stupid A&E is. Me watch A&E again. LIKE HELL I WILL. I have heard it all now. I hope the hell another network takes that contract because this is the most down to earth family to watch. I laugh so hard at Si. How ANAL can you get A&E???? You just won the “ATE UP WITH THE DUMBASS AWARD FOR THE CENTURY”!!!

    • Darren

      Who cares take this biggot hate filled show off the air. GREAT JOB AE SHUT IT DOWN

      • Avery Forester

        Obvious lack of education and fundamentals. Raised in a horrible environment . Its not your fault. I don't blame you for your nonsense view of the world.

        • Ashley Lawson

          You are astute Avery! Very insightful. Fuck that LGBT moron Darren.

          • JosephCain

            Ok, so wait. You're dissing a guy for “following everything he hears”, yet you firmly believe in an omnipotent father figure in the sky that says he loves you, but if you break any of his laws (or at least, any laws you yourself don't like, since you cherry pick bible verses), you go to Hell to burn forever in fire and pain.

            Excuse me, who the hell is a sheep here again?

          • randomedude32

            That's not the point of the Bible. The whole point of the law is to live up to God's standard of living, to be Holy in a sense. No human ever was Holy. That is why God sent His son to save us. There is catch if you follow Him you have to ” go and Sin no more”. We all have temptations that are perfectly natural to us, but can you pick up your cross daily. Can you say that you love him and still do something that He Himself describes as an abomination, and still claim you love him more that yourself. God is unchanging he hated that sin then and hates it now. He hates the sin not you.
            In summary can you love God more than sin or yourself. The reason my comment is so long is because your boorish comment really peeved me off.

          • Brandy Lopez

            you are so right I do believe that God destroyed a whole city because of sin, one of which was homosexuality. Everybody wants to act as if Phil is the one who made this up but it says right in the Bible that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19) for the things that Phil described as a sin!!

          • Robin

        Ever hear of the second amendment? He did not make his comments on the show. A&E should not be involved.

        • Darren

          It's what he said watch the fools 2010 video preaching hatred !! How can you defend this bunch of bigots hate filled family really

          • Darryl

            Free speech needs to be protected. I do not defend ignorance. I defend the 1st amendment. I am sorry that I offended all of the constitutional scholars out there by referring to the 2nd amendment by mistake. To quote Jon Stewart….Phil Robertson has a right to say ignorant S–t on TV. So even an Obama butt kisser like he is aware of the 1st amendment.

          • Darren

            No not at all I agree , but I figure all the duck dynasty fans defending good ole redneck Phil voted Obama

        • RoiKindler

          its the 1st amendment numbnut

        I still find it interesting how the crazy RIGHT defends this guy but were ready to lench the Dixie Chicks for speaking their mind about numb nuts. Free speech is only for the crazies I guess.

        • Darren

          The fact that the duck dynasty guy is getting suspended from his show for making homophobic remarks gives me hope for the country.

          • uottotravel

            I hear it at church when they read it from the BIBLE.
            Do you not lissen ?

            Exactly you hear someone else's opinion you don't know yourself and what the hell is lissen ? Lol. Gees

        • uottotravel

          Do you think, A & E needs to take sensitivity training towards Christians.?

      • pam

        The truth is the truth. He just SAID what the Bible says about homosexuality and premarital sex. It is not acceptable to God. Say what you may, it is not okay. Phil is not condemning the homosexual, only the practice of homosexuality. He would be kinder to the homosexual than the GLTB people would be to him.

        • Darren

          Gees you don't even know what the bible says about homosexuality ? Be a sheep and defend the biggot he's the most hate filled man around and you watch this junk ?
          Think for yourself !! Quit believing what you hear

          • Brandy Lopez

            Read the Bible it talks about in in Genesis 19, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the very reasons that Phil listed as sins…Phil did not make this up on his own, it is God's law like it or not. Everyone wants to say that Christians are picking and choosing parts of the Bible but it seems to me that the ones picking and choosing are the very same ones accusing the Christians of doing it. Phil also said that he would not treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from him but everyone leaves that out because they are trying to make something out of nothing!

          • Darren

            I know what the bible says watch his video of 2010 preaching hatred how can u defend this biggot gees you people are worse than sheep
            Can't wait till AE CANCELS THIS SHOW OF BIGGOTS
            CANT BE SOON ENOUGH

          • Dan

            I don't usually make any comments in these sections, but in this case I just couldn't resist. I have never seen “Duck Dynasty”. I did see the comments that this man made to GQ and I agree with them. I can't help but comment on Darren's hate filled diatribe though. It always amazes me how people “on the left” bash conservatives for their views, claiming they are close minded and hate filled. Darren, take a serious look at your own comments. Are they not “hate filled”? Are you not close minded and a “sheep” to those things people on the left have shoved down your throat, probably since a very young age? This man commented on his beliefs. Thats it. What if your boss (if you work) saw your comments on this blog and fired you because he disagreed with them? How would you be judging things then? YOU are the hate filled person here. You are the one who is a sheep and unable/unwilling to think for yourself. By the way…to disagree with homosexuality is not to judge someone to hell or even call them evil. It is simply to say the ACT is wrong. That is my opinion and belief. I hate no person. But I detest homosexuality.

          • Lynda Shea Porter

            This is all just a little much for One man's opinion. It wasn't done on the show. He was asked a question and answered it.
            The man is a faithful Bible reader, what's wrong with that?
            He has every right to his beliefs as you and I do, Because we aren't famous, rarely do people pay any thought to us.
            He's a man like everyone else.
            I am a catholic, I believe in the Bible, I do not believe in same sex marriage, I do not believe in sex with children, but guess what? It happens.

          • Darren

            I have never posted anything either in my life till I saw how ignorant people like u defended such a big-got hate filled man in his video of 2010 him preaching hatred. How can you defend such a cruel person ? Oh that's right you so called Christians will use the bible as you interpret it and what you think it say then scream gay agenda
            No wonder our country is in decline people like hate filled robertsons clan and you gees. God help um

          • Brandy Lopez

            No one on that show has ever proclaimed to hate homosexuals, no so how can you call them bigots when Phil is simply answering a question with his beliefs…would we rather everyone lie to us….that's what we have our government for…I would rather the show be canceled rather then to continue without Phil…they can always find another network who will actually support their freedom of speech.

          • Darren

            You said one thing right if rather them cancel the show also brandy keep defending good ole big-got Phil watch his video of 2010 preaching hatred how can you defend such a low life oh that's right u believe what you want. Gees people think for your self

          • Brandy Lopez

            he is not a bigot, he is just repeating God's word and yes I believe everything that Phil said and I had believed it before he even said it because it says it in the Bible and as far as thinking for ourselves….I am following God's word and that is better than trying to think for myself or have someone try to make me believe that what the Bible says doesn't matter to what society says.

          • Darren

            And a idiot like you for believing in him and following a ignorant redneck

          • Brandy Lopez

            I believe in God and his word and it doesn't really matter to me what you or anyone else thinks. This is a free country and I have a right to my beliefs regardless if you agree or not and besides you are acting a little childish with all the name calling which makes you look like an immature jerk.

          • Darren

            That's hard to believe since you believe in and defend Phil a big-got hate filled man

          • Brandy Lopez

            you are right about one thing….maybe we are worse than a sheep because like sheep we follow our master…God and that is far better than following the opinions of people who do not matter!!!

          • Darren

            U sure are a sheep , but then again sheep are smarter than you !!! Wake up little girl duck nasty is ignorant like Phil and Gods plan in action the show is going down soon just watch he showed his true colors and God don't like ugly

          • Brandy Lopez

            it seems to me like you are the only one being ugly because you are the one saying nasty things about people and you are right God doesn't like ugly so maybe you might think about that next time you call people names or same something ugly to them. Phil only quoted the Bible so I am sure that God doesn't mind. Oh and by the way haven't you heard Phil will be back on….

          • Darren

            Duck nasty is going down

          • 1bigrepublican

            God HATES sin! (It says so in the Bible, along with saying to stone a man who lies with another man) So, I guess God is hate filled too… Follow your path of immorality all the way to Hell and when you get there remember Phil Robertson is enjoying the reward of the righteous, because he ignored being politically correct and followed the law of God.

          • randomedude32

            Please sir don't get angry nor resort to profanities. We are to hold ourselves to higher standards; we also aren't supposed to judge others. Didn't Jesus himself that he didn't come to condemn the world. Point being YOU CANNOT CONDEMN PEOPLE TO HELL, that responsibility doesn't belong to you. Now turn the other cheek and stop judging

          • 1bigrepublican

            I didn't judge, I didn't use profanity and I am NOT A SIR! I'm a sweet, little, (super intelligent) chic.. LOL Anyways. I said if you follow the path of immorality it will lead to hell. And you are correct, Jesus didn't come to condemn the world because he came to save it (to give the chance for forgiveness and repentance) but read your bible (Revelation) we are at end times when “as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah” when God returns he will return with the spirit of vengeance for those who did NOT repent and that is what some Christians walking the fence seem to forget.

You to be offended must like anuses because you are one. Its uneducated fools like yourself who should step out of your mommas basement and get educated. You never read the GQ article or you wouldnt be shooting off your delusional mouth. Its people like you who are in this world that should not be reproducing.

            It's ironic that you talk about sense and make nonsensical statements like “47%…” If you had any common sense, leave aside intelligence as you surely haven't attended a regular school (you did go to the LGBT school for the super impaired), you would know that it takes a majority for someone to become a President.

      • BigMac

        You do not even know how to spell bigot.
        What is worse, you do not know what the term means.
        However that is not your fault, because the News media completely changed the meaning of the term, to make it mean anything that deviates from the Marxist-Boasist intellectual swindle that is called Political Correctness.
        Bigotry simply means desperately, irrationally clinging to a factually false belief in its original English meaning.
        Nothing that Phil said is factually false.
        I say this even though I am not a Christian or a Jew, but a free thinker.

        ignorant rednecks,lol where is your 40 million doloar business?they have more smarts in there pinky than you do in your whole body.

        • Darren

          Yea when people like u watch um gees Andy business is just great .. Let's see how much longer duck asses. Last I can't wait till it is taken off and trust me my friends assure me it will be. Lol

      • FearTheBeard

        @Darren you have the right to turn your tv off if you hate the show and feel that it is full of bigots. Nothing makes you continue to view something you do not agree with. However, Mr. Robertson is not full of malice or hate in his remarks. His remarks are based on his faith which leads him and many others (myself included) to believe that homosexuality is a sin. He stated that. I am a Christian and I have friends that live in sin, myself included. I hope they get it together as I hope I get my sins forgiven. My faith does not stop myself from liking and loving my friends. Nor does my friendship stop their action or mine from being a sin. Mr. Robertson said just that, preached just this message, STOP SINNING. A&E knew what his beliefs were and values and had no problem letting them be aired. Until now when someone thinks he is hate mongering towards gays, and we do not want to piss of the politically correct. Because we know the PC are living so righteously? Serious sir just turn your TV off.

        • Darren

          Sir I don't watch those biggots never have. And yes the whole family biggots in ther belief like you as you seem to believe him and follow his views and you belief what you want ,, But you like him will be judged I just can't wait till it's taken off air mark my words it will be soon

          • FearTheBeard

            @Darren, I will be judged for my sins and by the almighty, but your judgment of me scares me not in the least. Those others will be judged as well. And that is ok. So you want him to be taken off the air because he stands up and says what he believes in. Yet he spewed not hate or ill will to those you try to defend. He stated a fact, that to him and his beliefs those that engage in homosexual acts are sinning? Not that we should hate those sinners or stand in judgment of them. I sin, and I pray everyday for my forgiveness and pray for those who also sin to be forgiven. But you just want retribution, revenge or malice towards someone for their sins. You do not have to like him to be able to forgive him.

          • Darren

            “What’s clear is that such hateful anti-gay comments are unacceptable to fans, viewers, and networks alike,” Cruz said. “By taking quick action and removing Robertson from future filming, A&E has sent a strong message that discrimination is neither a Christian nor an American value.”

          • FearTheBeard

            Where was the discrimination? where are the hateful remarks? You cut and paste well but can not back your misquotes with facts. A&E has shown they will bow to the PC pressure. Which is fine, The show will continue being produced if not here then with another station. Post the antigay remarks and the hateful message that he has spewed.

          • Darren

            Comparing gays to the same as beastility that's not hate ?? Oh my read the interview and you defending this idiot? How sad

          • billy the kid

            His video, preaching hate, in 2010 shows his loathing for gays much better than this magazine interview.

          • FearTheBeard

            Was he preaching hate or was he preaching that it was a sin? Does he tell his congregation to hate those whom sin or forgive us sinners? Or do we take bits and pieces and make a story out of half truths?

          • billy the kid

            Watch the video. Make your own mind up. He believes that they are disgusting, corrupt, flawed, immoral, sinners, that are going to burn in hell. He may have not told anyone to hate them, but he definitely didn't preach what Jesus’ teachings were about. That's the beauty of Chrisianity… You get to pick and choose which rules apply, to suit your argument. Does everything happen for a reason or not ( part of gods plan )? No need to get mad, the man up stairs planned this. Just let it happen.

          • Ashley Lawson

            LOL! You left out several other adjectives that apply to all LGBT pigs.

          • billy the kid

            let the hate out.

          • Darren

            Billy my man you are exactly right thanks

          • billy the kid

            These people are killing me. Blindly supporting something based on everything, but fact… wait a minute, that sounds like a little thing called Christianity. Ha.

          • Darren

            Exactly !!! what's new ? How people can be so blinded
            Thanks my man

          • billy the kid

            Common sense is at a premium here. I got ya.

          • Darren

            Thank you

          • Ashley Lawson

            LOL! The level of exactness required by these LGBT pigs is zero. So they are always “exactly right” even before they open their mouth and show how utterly ridiculously dumb they are.

          • billy the kid

            talking snakes. living to 100's of years old. living in large fish. building cruise liners. two of every animal. virgin birth. adam and eve. yep, they are ridiculous.

          • jenk911

            So…..before the advent cameras which could capture proof of an event or proof that a person in history even existed…everything was documented in a written word or a picture depicting someone's interpretation of what was happening…..but yet you BELIEVE those historical events happened….all from someone's written accounts…..yeah…you believe and take those historical accounts as fact…..

          • Darren

            Pigs ? As always you guys always start name calling and hatred ,, duck nasty is going be cancelled soon. Ha ha I can't wait family of hatred going down Gods plan in work

          • Ashley Lawson

            If so, that video must become a primary teaching material in all schools. It's a shame that is only a video. I would have liked Phil shoving the LGBT pigs into a tar pit and lighting up their arses.

          • billy the kid

            AWESOME!! your god must be very proud.

          • FearTheBeard

            I have read the interview, what it states is:

            “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph from there,” Robertson, 67, said when asked what is sinful. “Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

            In this quote, he is asked of what is sinful, he never states anything negative about homosexuals except express his belief that it is a sin, just as murder, stealing, lying, adultery and many others are considered to be a sin. If a sin is a sin and one holds no more merit than the next then are we all the same as bestiality? Has one of us not ever sinned? I am a sinner too, I am not offended by him comparing my sins next to other sins.

            What is sad is how one can look at this and not understand what has happened.Simply put, Phil Robertson is being censored and punished for quoting the Bible, and A&E's treatment of him is punitive and highly discriminatory, yet you ask me to turn the other check and side with you and yet you wont do the same.

          • billy the kid

            Have you seen his 2010 video, where he says they are full of murder, envy, strife, and hatred? Keep supporting the bigot.

          • Darren

            Watch his 2010 video of him preaching !! How much hatred is in this man ? Why would you defend someone like him ? Maybe Gods plan to shut duck dynasty down !! I hope

          • Carrie

            What Gods do you follow, exactly? Form what I've seen, he was quoting the Bible, so how is that hate-filled? If anything, he's trying to help people see what God intended man to do and not do. Sorry if you don't agree, but you are entitled to your opinion, just as Phil is.

          • Darren

            Gods ? There is only 1 GOD AND IF U CANT SEE THE HATRED IN THIS MAN GEES
            NO WONDER OUR COUNTRY IS IN SUCH CONDITION PEOPLE LIKE YOU

          • friday

            I think you are scared. That Almighty God hit a soft spot and you don't know how to deal with it. So therefore you act like a bully child because you are afraid of the truth.

          • Darren

            Are you really this ignorant ? GOD HELP HER

          • friday

            And why do you insinuate I am female? Maybe because I insinuated you are bothered by this conversation because just maybe God is stirring you to read his book. You can't argue on something you don't understand . My apologies for making you uncomfortable.

          • Darren

            Cause obvious you don't have the balls to post your name. Lol
            U didn't make me anything

            We as a nation are quickly losing are values and morals of which made this country great. crime and drugs are everywhere. politicians for the most part are corrupt. I was reported to child welfare (DFCS) because my autistic daughter's teacher thought my16 year old daughter was pregnant. And now my family is under investigation. And it's because everything today has to be so politically correct. It's a shame. I feel as if this nation has lost it's soul. Wade Vincent Douglasville, Georgia

          • Darren

            We have look at our sorry president and just look how many people are upset at duck nasty on here but what about our country going down tubes almost bankrupt all the scandals in Washington IRS, fast furious, Benghazi but look people are more worried about defending a big-got and his hatred unbelievable wake up folks if it's not already too late

          • quasimoto

            So Darren it is wrong for people to get involved with animals? What a bigot!

          • Common Sense Mike

            What is it you do not understand about ‘opinion'? You claim he is a ‘hater', a ‘bigot', etc….those are not facts. They are your OPINIONS about him. He did not say he ‘Hates’ anyone. He just believes that they are wrong in what they are doing. You are the one labeling him with the term ‘hater’ because you cannot stomach how he feels about gays. Sounds like a seriously personal problem. Get over it!!!!!

          • billy the kid

            look at his video in 2010. he hates them.

          • Common Sense Mike

            Not in the GQ interview article which is what this column is about.

          • billy the kid

            So past acts of discrimination or hateful comments about gays doesn't matter? The pattern of anti gay comments and actions don't matter? He was using the bible and god, as his crutch, to legitimize his bronze age thinking. I wonder if he is hard on people that work on Sunday? Those sinners should burn too!

          • FearTheBeard

            Where are these patterns? Show me the HATE, he believes it is a SIN. Trust me all of us sin (you included) I don't hate you for it. I hope you find salvation and can be freed from your sin as I hope God will show myself grace and mercy. Because I choose to believe does not make me a bronze age thinker. I believe that people with an agenda have twisted the story into what serves their purpose. I believe A&E is catering towards the PC belief de jour. I am supposed to be ok with you bashing my religion because you think that it is outdated. I am ok with that, in return I offer my other cheek for you to abuse as well. I can disagree with you and others and not hate them. But can you like me with my beliefs?

          • billy the kid

            to a point. If you had a gay son/ daughter, would you want them to have the same rights as anyone else? This man clearly has said that he doesn't think gays should marry one another. Your bible is fiction and has people thinking that certain people are lesser than others.

          • FearTheBeard

            Clearly you have gotten your views on civil liberties and what is the bible mixed up. I believe they should have the same rights as anyone else. Do I still believe that the act is a sin yes. You believe the bible I read is fiction but you cannot prove that, no more than I can convert you. That is not my goal. My goal is to understand how one man can state his religious belief and they can be turned and twisted to make him out to be a hate monger. My bible has no one thinking I am better then anyone else, or perhaps you did not read my posts. I am a sinner. I am a believer. Your blind faith believes that there is no God and the bible is fake, is as real as my faith that there is a God and my bible is the word of God. In no where did I think I am better, but your contempt of myself because I believe in sin and you do not, is bullying, menacing, harassment, if I were to allow it to be. Instead I like our talk.

          • billy the kid

            You believe they should have the same rights, but you don't think they should be allowed to marry? What a joke.

          • Ashley Lawson

            LOL! It's only with the LGBT pigs that reward and punishment are both met out by fucking each other. Ha ha ha ha…

          • billy the kid

            You are very wise.

          • FearTheBeard

            In my religion no they cannot marry as marriage is sanctified for man and a woman. However there is no where that says they cannot join in a civil union and posses the rights of a married man and woman. But I forgot I am a joke, because like most people if it is not your way it is wrong.

          • Lulu Morin

            not that people are lesser as individuals, just as a couple

          • friday

            I Believe he said he was a sinner too! I also feel you can not argue against a book you haven't read or a God you have no personal relationship with. However, you are trying hard and looking desperately foolish. Try , just try and prove that God does not rule. He, the good Shepard will break your legs and carry you till you know his voice should he choose to save you. I pray he does for your sake.

          • butterflyinoh

            He is PREACHING THE WORD….. in church, which says in the WORD it's a SIN. But then, there are people who will just keep denying it; those whose hearts and minds are COLD and DEAD. They love the darkness more than the Light.

          • Harold

            I think there is a misconception that the word sin means “hate” and it doesn't. Kids disobeying their parents is a sin, that doesn't mean I hate kids. I love my Kids, I just don't like some of the things they choose to do. Its the same thing with Homosexuality. God says that the act it self is a sin, not that He hates those who perform them. The Bible is pretty clear “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” but it also says that “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that who so ever believth in him should not perish but have everlasting life”. I write those two things because its clear that God, like any other parent, might not like what we do all the time but he loves us enough to send his only begotten son to die for us. That sir, is the greatest love anyone can express.

          • Darren

            So you defending this scum ?
            The man is full of hatred !! And preaches that !! Who in ther right mind could defend this type of behavior ? But just look at all the folks that support his hate ! Are they really Christians ?

          • Ben

            Darren must lead a poor pathetic life where he is a total nothing in his social circle. It appears that this dumbass has been on this discussion arguing his point for over 10 hours. What a pathetic individual you must be in that the only place you have the balls to speak up is a message board where you can remain faceless and nameless. I wish I could run into you on the street and see if you still had the intestinal fortitude to spew your ignorance. You might get some sense beaten into your dumbass. But I know your kind. You'd slump those shoulders and drop tht poor pathetic head down and shuffle by in your sad life.

          • Darren

            No actually I have a awsome life but when I saw just how a bunch of followers defending a loser hate filled man and screaming gay agenda I couldn't resist to comment. To call you and everyone out on this Christian post ? Read the comments some Christians but you will be the first to scream gay agenda if you fill someone doesn't think the wsy your ignorant ass does and you really think you can beat me yea try fool ill stomp a mud. Hole in your big-got ass you threaten me I won't run. Never have especially from people like you

          • Darren

            He can say whatever but he crossed the line comparing gays to bestiality and comments about Jews and blacks what's more amazing people like you are defending this idiot. I want the show cancelled cause there just big-gots and spreading their hatred toward people where are the Christian outcry about that ? You like others just see it as bashing a gay agenda No wonder our country is in crisis when you and others care more about a stupid show duck dynasty than the things happening in our country !!! A liar conving president that is breaking numerous laws and ignoring the constitution rights of me and you .. Wher is the outcry for this ? Bengazi , IRS, our attorney general breaking the law also !! Numerous other things. Just curious did you post anything about any of these things ? Or anyone else on here ? My guess is no but let the worg gay agenda mention and look at the comments No wonder our country is in such shape ,, when america is a 3 rd world country and don't think it can happen look at out debt!!!! Wonder if yours or other comments about duck dynasty or trying to defend them will matter ????? Just saying

      • Katy Treptau

        Excuse me but I take offense to ignorant redneck thank you. Why are you wanting to punish Phil for exercising his right to freedom of speech? It's ok for you to call people ignorant redneck but he can't simply say what the bible says. Like he said in the interview he loves everyone equally it's not up to him to judge its Gods. Instead of discussing things you and this other person that I hope reads this have gone back and forth and at this point both sound dumb. You both are pointing the finger with your wrong but have yet to give valid points as to why. Just insults.

        • Darren

          I'm a redneck !!!! But he crossed the line I just can't wait till the show is cancelled

          • Billy

            Darren it will be cancelled…. eventually,like every other show is eventually cancelled,one thing you can count on if A&E is stupid enough to cancel the show another will network will pick it up in due time . Phil didn't cross any line he merely expressed what he believes to be true ,just because you don't agree with what a certain person does doesn't mean you hate that person does it?

          • Darren

            Nope Gods plan. Duck nasty going down. Ha ha I can't wait

      Favorite show? Watching swamp hillbillies sit on their front porch? Easily entertained, and I'm amazed at what passes as entertainment these days.

        So it's ok to call someone a swamp hillbillie ? But not ok to call a gay a fagget or queer which is what they are.

      • NYCircus

        Again with the hate. What is it that makes you feel so threatened by ‘swamp hillbillies’ as you put it? BTW, all of those hillbillies are college educated with graduate degrees. Why do you feel the need to put down others? And before you start, Phil Robertson did not ‘put down’ gays. He said that gays would not enter the kingdom of God. He didn't say he hates gays. Kind of like me saying you won't go to heaven with dog crap breath. I didn't say I hate people with dog crap breath, I just said you won't go to heaven. Can you see where I'm going with this? You should practice a little more tolerance. Don't be so hateful.

      • butterflyinoh

        It's better than sitting in a city watching all the immorality being paraded around by twisted minded people…but then again, that's just MY opinion; which is one reason I moved to the country.

      I sure as hell hope you don't like Pork, Shellfish, or clothing with blended fibers. Those are just as much abominations in the Bible, y'know. Or are we cherry-picking Testaments, and what words of God we want to follow, now? Seriously, your Christians are the whiniest little shits to ever live. You bash others then cry like little babies when you get slapped the hell down by public opinion.

    • DaveW

      SHUT THE F&( UP. They signed a contract, if THEY or HE cannot comply, you're fired. No one cares what “CAT” says.

  • cathy

    If Phil even comes back This should have never gotten this out of hand, If networks keep allowing those who don't belive in what others belive than you shouldn't have networks at all. Cause you are going to get those who are hater's who are looking for trouble. I personal I am sick of this Every time someone who's on Tv they are jump upon. And again Im so disappointed in your network for allowing this, I have not turn on your station at all today Till you bring phil back. He did nothing wrong but quoted the bible dang Im waiting for some idot to try to take it out of this world Hell there taking everything eles out of this world

      Where are all the Christians trying to shut down every sitcom that denigrates traditional marriage, portrays husbands as idiots, etc.? You don't hear about them because they just choose not to watch the garbage,

  • Shadow

    What's A&E's phone numbers???

  • red neck man

    ok which ever network the family moves to we will watch. .A&E we are taking you guys and all the other networks you own off our TV list all for just a everyday guy supporting his beliefs

    • Paul L.

      if A&E doesn't make this right soon, I will never watch their network again.They could show the Super Bowl and i wouldn't watch it. I also will find out all the stations they own and never view them either. Phil was doing his christian duty, to spread the word of the bible.

  • Skipper24

    Christians believe that we are created by God with design and purpose. The body is designed to operate by God's design, the eyes for seeing, ears for hearing, nose for smell and to get oxygen to the lungs, etc. If you saw someone sniffing a line of cocaine, could you rightfully conclude, “aha, that must be the purpose of the nose”? No, it is a perversion of purpose. In the same manner, the body is designed to operate sexually in a certain way. All Phil's critics have to do is to explain how the body is designed for homosexual sex.

  • SMJ9

    AMAZING HOW ANY ONE WHO STANDS THIER GROUND AND OR EXPRESSES THIER CHRISTIAN BELIEFS THAT THEY ARE IMMEADIETLY CUT DOWN BY THE HARDCORE LEFT WING MEDIA?? WHEN ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUP SAYS SOMETHING HARDLINE AND DOGMATIC IN RESPECT TO THIER BELIEF SYTEM IT IS PERFECTLY FINE AND WE SHOULD BE TOLERANT OF THEM. UNLESS OF COURSE YOU HAVE JUDEO /CHRISTIAN BELIEFS. SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A EFFORT TO OUTRIGHT SUPPRESS CHRISTIANS AND JEWS AND ELIMINATE THERE CORE BLIEFS FROM BEING MENTIONED OR USED IN ANY WAY IN THE PUBLIC ARENA. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS GREAT NATION. SHOW A&E / HISTORY CHANNEL/AND ANY OTHER LIBERAL TALKING HEAD WHAT YOU THINK. SHUT THEM DOWN. BOYCOTT!!!!

    • claude jr

      I'm very glad to see that someone understands that we are Judeo /Christians. No disrespect to anyone if I have misspelled anything. This is an attack against the Christian beliefs,however;many feel it is taking away freedom of speech. We still have freedom of speech”as long as we say what people want to hear”. It's a shame that our nation has aloud this to happen to anyone but that's the only way our freedoms are considered today. You fit the click or in this case should I say,”fit the special interest groups”, or your not to speak out against the beliefs of others. And we only have things worse to look forward to,sounds quiet charming ,doesn't it. Thank God that the Church will be leaving this world before it really gets to see the wrath of God. The one thing we all can do is to remember the Robertson family in our prayers as they go through this trial in their lives. A&E and the (special interest group) which “all BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS totally disagree with will one day have to answer for this condemnation of a brother Christian”. LET ALL BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS HOLD TOGETHER IN PRAYER AND ALLOW GOD TO TAKE CARE OF ALL OF THIS!

  • chalijo

    Sean Hannity would be gay if he ever went to jail. He's an uneducated fraud. Some of you follow this coward as though he were for real. He's pro-war but has never served in any branch of the armed forces. I don't agree with homosexuality but can't stand a fraud like Hannity doing anything.

  • Susy K

    The TRUE haters and bigots are those intolerant individuals and organizations who would try to destroy a man over traditional Christian beliefs. Shame on A&E, and those advocacy organizations that want tolerance for themselves, but are intolerant of others.

    • Paul L.

      Very well said

      AGREE 100% !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JaNaya

    Put Phil back on!

  • Luis Torres

    The guy was fired because he paraphrased Corinthians and that's not religious discrimination? Who's the real bigot here? So gay conduct cannot be criticized now? That's diversity? What happened to this country? A&E: religious bigots and entertainment's dumbest executives.

  • Joseph Angileri

    what is the problem, PHIL & the POPE believe the same about homosexuality.

  • Dave Infinger

    Have you ever heard of the saying, ” don't kill the goose that is laying the golden eggs?” Well you just killed that goose. Neither my family nor I will be watching A&E again. That's ever….

  • Doug

    We as Chriatians are to speak were the bible speaks and be silent were the bible is silent. The comments that were made are not Phil's opinion, they are biblical facts. the world is jaded with gays, killers, and thieves. I would like this family to know it doesnt matter what anyone's opinion is, when a person quotes the bible they are right. God bless this family…..

    When you wear Jimmy Choos and take a Birkin bag to work of course you are out of touch with your viewers. It seems to me that the decision went like this:
    Glaad: We cannot have this, the talent isn't following our script.
    Dubuc: Let me get my triple macchiato with whip and a dusting of cinnamon before I respond
    Glaad: Listen there are so many of us working in Hollywood we cannot have these rough necks saying whatever they think!
    Dubuc: You are right everyone who is not LGBT or Glaad has to follow the script. He is clearly off script. What an idiot
    Glaad: I knew you would bend to our suggestions you always do.
    Dubuc: He's gone!! Gotta go and have a fitting for my the Versace I am wearing to the awards in Hollywood on Sunday………….. we won you know, with Duck Dynasty…. tata for now………… kissy, kissy

    The Gay rights movement has become the “Das Reich” movement. They demand that we love the sinner. Agreed. But they also COMMAND that we love the sin! A&E will not be the only anus I will boycott in this mess!

    • lw

      I would say to Phil to keep standing strong. If A&E can't see what has made Duck Danasty such a hit then maybe they(A&E) shouldn't profit from them anymore. And anyone who thinks the show made it because of ability to make duck calls they need to think again, I'm sure they were chosen in part due to their family closeness and their strong family beliefs. So in the end A&E may just lose out on one of the best family show out there. And I see the Robertsons continue to stay a close family no matter what happens. The Best for Phil and his family.

  • Bill

    No tolerance from the crowd that preaches(excuse the pun) tolerance. Imagine that. If this isn't so typical.

  • duckhunter1

    Saying that liberal media and institutions like GLADD can dish it out, but not take it, is spot on. We are deluged with hate, filth, and profanity on nearly every TV station including A&E. The only exceptions are Duck Dynasty and RFD. Even the Disney channels lend themselves toward the liberal side of social issues. I have six kids and have banned watching A&E or Disney. Ironic, isn't it, that we as a society and liberal media find it acceptable to expose us to Muslims hating everyone and even beheading people on prime time, Hollywood filth like Charlie Sheen professing his obsessions on air, near pornographic commercials during family programming, or bigots like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson spewing their messages of hate to incite racial tension, all in the name of tolerance and free speech…but when a godly man expresses his opinion it's regarded as intolerable….ARE YOU SERIOUS??? In my opinion, A&E chair Abbe Raven is a hypocrite and purveyor of anti-family values. True Family friendly programming like RFD TV, should pick up Duck Dynasty and become the new industry leaders and push the hypocrites of A&E into the gutter where they belong.

  • R.j. Thomas

    You don't understand. Acceptance is not enough. It's all well and good that you “accept” gay people. For true equality, you must embrace homosexuality as a viable part of YOUR sexual spectrum. Until this happens, equality is just a word. The next generation will understand this, bet on it!

  • Firefighter911

    I will join the fight against A&E. The Christian belief is under attack and being silenced just because of the voice of a few. Why do the Christians options always get pushed aside and silenced. Do we ban the BIBLE now because of what is written about being Gay or about Bestiality. Go ahead A&E Ban the Bible and Christian beliefs now just to appease the Gays and Lesbians,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • Firefighter911

    FIGHT BACK PHIL!!!!! Duck Dynasty needs to leave A&E……Other network will fight to pick up your show or rename it. Go to History Channel or Discovery anywhere but A&E.

    • FightBackPhil

      A&E is part of the History Channel, Discovery Channel and TLC. They might have better luck like at a network like INSP or ION Channel, or any other Christian network

      • guest

        actually Discovery and TLC are part of the discovery networks not the A&E networks

  • Craig M.

    Every member of the Robertson family should come out and do the same thing. Then take the show to one of the Christian networks. There current viewers will follow them. Then we would not have to watch all the trashy commercials while trying to watch the shows with our kids.

  • John

    what's good for Paula Deen is good for Phil. And if Hannity wants to continue supporting hate speech…god bless him..let him and Sarah Palin continue…they are not worth god's graces.

    • edsi

  • Gary

    Homosexuals have a great deal of influence over the entertainment industry. Gays represent a higher percentage of employed people in Hollywood at all levels. They have the money, the agenda, the political savvy and the voice. This is why we are inundated with their message day in and day out. I am weary of the constant droning. Sleeping around, infidelity, lack of commitment to relationships, poor parenting examples, pleasure seeking, an anything for money attitude, greed are all being promoted and for what reason? To justify the lifestyle. It would suit me fine for the show to just stop. That family is at risk of losing all of what has endeared them to a lot of people in this country. Fame and riches are deceiving, the risk of self destruction is very high. I pray that they are kept safe and protected. The love they exhibit toward one another is where their riches exist.

  • Jay Welte

    While I may not agree with Phils's views, I am tired of EVERYONE being stripped of the rights we were given. In this case freedom of speech, we all are supposed to be able to express our thoughts. Rag mags print lies but that is OK? We are also to have religious freedom right? We all know that beliefs vary so why when one states theirs do we come to these extremes. I am for all being happy no matter what choice they make. I send best wishes to the Robertson family. Just know that the ones in this house are done with A&E till Phil can express his opinions and beliefs.

  • Aaron

    I am not surprised at all to see all the hateful comments from both sides on here. That's where we are as a country now. Pick a side, and do everything you can to bring the other side down. No room for civilized debate anymore. Not a chance.

    The reality is that he did more than just speak his mind. He said some things that are extremely insulting to a lot of people, and not just homosexuals. What he said was offensive to me, and I'm straight. This article even makes it clear that it wasn't just him saying he disagrees with homosexuality based on his religious beliefs. He compared it to bestiality. That is simply way over the line.

    His right to free speech has not been taken away whatsoever. The right to free speech says the government will not do anything to limit your freedom in that regard. He has a right to say what he thinks, and his employer has every right to decide whether he should continue to represent them after saying it.

    I have never watched a single episode of Duck Dynasty, but I do watch a great deal of other programming on the network, and I will continue to do so. Taking a stand against intolerance, knowing that it may have financial consequences, is an admirable thing to do. And before you say it, standing up against those who would single out a sizable group of our population to be treated differently (and not in a good way), is not intolerance.

  • lindannrock

    We banish Paula Dean for her comments about blacks (that she made 25 years ago!) yet we tolerate Mr. Robertson's comment comparing gays to beasts? And that he should be given an apology…and a hall pass to continue to make hateful and mean comments ?? What's next – a judicial system that determines guilt based on popularity?
    Little people have little minds and
    Mr. Robertson (and his ignorant followers) are certainly on the low end of the totem pole.

Americans are FINALLY fed up enough to STAND UP AND BE HEARD! I know EXACTLY what happened – GLBT THREATENED TO WHINE & CRY NATIONALLY & TO THE PRESIDENT (their new “Daddy”) and A&E CAVED BECAUSE THEY CAN'T STAND ON A PRINCIPLE – and they MIGHT lose a few bucks!

    Excuse me, but they DID ask his opinion. Since when is it NOT ok to say what you believe in? They asked him what he considered sins, and good ole’ Phil just told it as it is, and that's not a crime.

    What is Hollywood politically correct is definitely NOT the masses politically correct. I hope Phil and his family leaves A&E and the ratings plummet. You knew what you were getting into when you aired the family and the show , also profited heavily. The fundamental rights of speech and spiritual beliefs are freedom and who are you A&E to censor that. Never will I watch A&E again!

  • JOHNRR

    I am a gay person. I only say that because I want to say that not every gay person wants Phil to lose his job! As a matter of fact, I sort of laughed when I read what he said because that is probably how he talks, not just about the gay issue. It didn't take me long to realize that he wasn't trying to be hateful. Having said that, I sit back in amazement at all the Christians that totally ignored how disgusting his description was! So, do I not have the right to feel upset? Change the word gay and put in the name of your religion and ask yourselves if people's reactions would have been the same! Would it be alright if somebody spoke like that in church? YOU ALL KNOW THAT IT WOULDN'T! We are suppose to sit back and take people's garbage? Would it be ok fort me to describe somebody in that manner just because I believe they are bad? Don't speak about Christian values and excuse yourselves from having to act like one! I grew up Mormon. I love the Church in so many ways. All of my family are Mormon! Every single day we have to deal with people's beliefs! I also believe in God! I guess we , as gay people, are suppose to accept how other people define us? No! I don't think so! The thing that ticks me off the most is how conservative hypocrites jumped at the chance to bash liberal and twist this into lies. We, as gay people, are not trying to take away freedom of speech! SO SPEAK FOR YOURSELVES! Every day of my life I work and live among Mormons, and I care deeply about them! I know what the believe and I do my best to respect it. Tell me, how do you respect somebody who treats you in such a disgusting way! It may the opinion of others that I am garbage, but don't have to accept that! God would never ever treat us in such a disgusting way and you can all say what you want, we all know that deep down in! I can not imagine treating another human being that way, yet nobody seems to worry about! So, stop twisting it for your own political views! I would gladly talk to Phil and I bet I would like him! I don't feel like he deserves to be treated bad and I agree with people standing up for that. I also believe that it is wrong to degrade human beings in that manner. People go far beyond anything that they could ever find in the Bible! And maybe people should ask themselves what Christ's reaction would be if somebody said those things to him! What do we do? I care about others so I try.

    • KLM

      I know what God would do… DESTROY THE WHOLE CITY!!! just like He did in Sodom and Gomorrah! I'm sorry to be blunt Sir, but please…repent! THe bible says to repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!!! None of us will ever be perfect… but the bible tells us to strive to be holy as He is holy… we need to allow our convictions to direct our path… NOT our fleshly desires… We all have our own weaknesses but thru Christ, we can overcome our weakness and be FREE from the things that bind us!!! Please consider what I say…

  • clh

    I'd rather watch Duck Dynasty with its family values than watch Miley Cyrus twerk and simulate sex acts, or watch lesbians kissing on tv. I don't agree with the decline of morality in mainstream tv and won't watch it if I don't like it. I would expect the same from the gay lesbians. If they're not happy with a show, don't watch it. I haven't heard anything on the show that has been hurtful against anyone. Why should his personal opinions matter to anyone but him.

      That is a narrow minded view. There are many of us that watch neither. You are painting everything black and white and it's really about 80% gray.

  • aeweidman

    Sorry Mr. Robertson , if you truely were just repeating what you have learned from the bible and your religious teachings and this wasn't just hiding behind that to spread your bias and hate for gays I would be Okay with it. But when you cheated on your wife I didn't hear a word from you about getting stoned in the public square for adultrey. Hmmmm only works one way Mr. Robertson? Can't just pick and choose the verses to be applied. No more bar-b-qued pork of bacon for you either, and no labor of any sort on the day of rest either. I can go on and on with the biblical laws you break daily. Yet you don't relate to any of those.

    • Wayne

      aeweidman, “Come let us reason together”. If you are going to quote the Bible make sure you know the context before you use what you think is its content. All of your examples are from the Old Testament and were addressed in the New Testament. Judgment for those who are adulterers is a real Biblical truth-Old Testament Exodus 20:14, Leviticus 20:10, addressed New Testament- Matthew 5:27-30, Luke 16:18 Jesus Christ extends Mercy to a repentant adulterous woman John 8: 3-11 telling her to “Go and leave your life of Sin”. Eating of those things determined by God to be unclean in the Old Testament- Leviticus 11:1-19, addressed in the New Testament- Acts 10:9-19 now permissible to eat all things. Laboring on the Sabbath- Old Testament Exodus 31:12-17 addressed in the New Testament- Matthew 12:1-8, Luke 13:10-17 laboring condoned conditional on the application.
      The same thing applies to our addressing individual lives. You say that Phil Robertson doesn't relate to any of your stated Biblical laws. Have you ever heard him speak in the context of his faith other than the GQ article. Ever heard his wife and her testimony about him prior to his Christian experience. He and she both do not shy away from the fact that he was a sinful man. But much like the adulterous woman in the book of John he has been shown mercy and is leaving (Transitioning by the grace of God) from his life of sin. Could he have been more thoughtful and spoken his belief's in a less crude way-of coarse. Just as you believe he has used the Bible to be hurtful and spiteful, you have done the same.

  • maddog22

    If you want to get even just email all the A&E sponser of other shows and tell them that you cannot buy their product because of their connection with A&E. NO SPONSER NO NETWORK it is that simple, that is how the GAYS do it .
    Also email the companies of the board of directors and inform them since your excutive are assocated with A&E you will no longer buy their products and services.

    Robertson was getting paid to do a job, his view conflicted with the boss and he was suspended, it happens to working people all the time. If I had said what he did on my job I'd be lucky to not get fired. His freedom of speech is not taken away he can still say what he wants. Duck Dynasty is just a tv show, there for entertainment so with all the issues going on with the world why don't people focus on the good of the world not some tv show.

    I will support the Robinsons and their support of Phil! Don't ask a true Christian how they feel about gays unless you really want to know! It is biblically wrong and any bible believer is going to say so. It's not bashing. It's not homophobic. It's just a simple Bible backed belief that “unnatural affections are sinful. End of story…

    What ever happened to freedom of speech????? Why bow down to a group who simply doesn't
    agree with a comment. Or was it just
    “YOU” (A&E) who prematurely reacted thinking Phil's comments were
    going to offend????

    Phil's comments are what HE believes. He wasn't saying everyone thinks like him, he
    was just giving his beliefs the way he sees things based upon his Christian
    teachings.

    It’s his own answer to a question or statement he was asked
    to give. Was he supposed to make up
    another answer just to make sure he didn't offend anyone???

    Let’s say an openly gay person on one of your shows made a
    comment about not believing in GOD or offending Christians is some way, would
    you throw that person off your show??? I doubt it very much! You would have the gay community down your
    throat in a heartbeat.

    If you don't do the right thing here and allow Phil to
    remain on the show and openly apologize to Phil and his family, I for one will
    NEVER watch another A&E program for the rest of my life. I may just be one person but I assure you,
    you will feel the sting when millions stop watching your shows and your ratings
    plummet.

    Duck Dynasty viewers
    consist of extremely strong, God fearing country folk who are literally the back
    bone of America.

    Now look what you have done. You just awoke a sleeping giant
    who has the ability to “allow” your network to be #1 OR it has the
    ability to absolutely ruin it.

  • Shawna Allen

    You can clearly see by watching the show that Mr. Robertson is a good Christian man, if you have ever done the research and read biography's you would know his struggles in his passed and how he turned to God to better himself and his family's life. I am also a Christian, I do not believe what he said, and I am not saying he should have said it but he did, and he has the right. I believe that God is a merciful God and Jesus died on the cross for our sins. It is all about faith, no one really knows what truly will happen, who will go to heaven and who will not. The bible can be interpreted in many ways. One thing I do know is that I am ashamed of the people leaving comments calling names and cursing. One Christian mans opinion is only that… his opinion. Everyone is entitled to have their own opinion with free will and all. With that being said how about we take another kindergarten lessen, “if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all” We teach our children this as they grow but somehow as we get older we forget the golden rule. The world would probably be a better place if we could love one another for our differences and stop the bashing on all ends. Mr. Robinson was speaking what he has been taught, but he also said he loves everyone as Jesus did and would never treat anyone different or badly. Jesus loved everyone, and was there for everyone, he didn't judge. So who are we to think it is okay to be mean and rude to one another. God Bless you all and may you be able to find it in your hearts to be someone our Lord can be proud of.

    • kinghill

      Sorry Shawna, but you can't accept the Bible as the inspired Word of the Creator and condone sex between people of the same sex. Now obviously sins can be forgiven, and that is why Christ came to the earth, to suffer horrible torture and death in our place, so we don't have to be condemned to hell. But we are called to repentance which would require a homosexual to give up the lifestyle, just as it would require an adulterer to cease and desist. Don't you think God takes sin very seriously if he allowed himself to be born and live as a man, and be murdered by men, to pay for our transgressions?

      • Shawna Allen

        I didn't say I condone anything. I am simply saying it is not our place to judge. Its no wonder so many people dislike (some) Christians, because instead of following in Jesus's footsteps with love, they “condemn” those that are different. Who are we to tell someone they are going to hell? No sin is greater than any other, and everyone sins, according to the Bible. What gives anyone the right? Our Father in Heaven is the only one that knows. Not you or anyone else.
        I didn't come here for a debate about the Bible, I didn't come to argue with anyone, it just upset me to see so many people calling each other names and being so rude, if so many are standing with Mr. Robertson, and believe in the love of Christ then name calling and rudeness is definitely not the message that should be sent.

    Shawn, what can we do?? I don't want A & E on my TV anymore if this is what they are going to do to Duck Dynasty Phil because he spoke of his convictions and the TRUTH. HELP we all need to take A & E off out TV's. What can we do?

    • Debbie

      A&E didn't like what he said so they took him off the air. You don't like what A&E did so you think that they should be off the air. Hypocritical much?

        that makes Jesus a demigod same as Hercules

  • Jeanine

    The rest of the family won't film with out him so I think A&E is stuck. They need to bring him back. This man did NOTHING wrong but state his opinion. Why is it ok for us to hear non-stop from the gay commuinity but once a straight man says one things about it he is bashing gays….this is getting out of control. I love the gay community and have may gay friends and relatives but that doesn't mean I have the right or they do to change the point of view of a man well in to his 60's. If they don't want to put Phil back on I am guessing any other station would pick them up in a heart beat! FX is a good station and they don't seem to care about the views of their stars. I love the Robbinson Family and stand with them 100%!

  • Angela Legacy

    This is a triumph for the first amendment. Phil is free to say what he wants and A&E is free to choose not to associate with him. It's a win win.

    • Pearlbuck

      You're leaving a lot out. Millions of fans of Duck Dynasty are free to express rage at the decision and to boycott the station, and to deeply resent gay activists and Progressives for punishing a guy they like merely for answering a question honestly. Is that win win win win, in your opinion?

      Meanwhile, the Colorado cake maker is not free to make cakes that conform to his religious creed–once again, because gays and Progressives want to force their will on individuals.

      Your smug position comes across as childish and snide, but I'm not sure where it's coming from–the backlash is not going to be good for gays.

      • Angela Legacy

        I haven't left anyone out and A&E refusing to go forward with Phil isn't punishment, it's a business decision. Personally, it's a dumb one as far as I am concerned because now they are married to this subject.

        As for childish and snide, your insinuations would fit that description.

        • Pearlbuck

          Wrong. They were not worried about losing money due to his comments. Quite the opposite. It was an ideological decision. To make a comparison–when mainstream Hollywood turns its back on the major market of Christian-themed films, it's not a business decision. You seem intelligent enough to understand all of this.

          • Angela Legacy

            It's about the money, it's always about the money. I would bet that advertisers were calling A&E insisting that they react to the comments. The smart reaction by A&E would have been to state that Phil's views were his alone and not those of A&E's and then drop it. Now they are screwed and I'll bet that the exec who made the call will be deciding to “spend more time with her family” in a few months.

            In regards to Hollywood movies, you got me there, haven't been into that scene in decades. I will however remind you that Hollywood makes crappy movies intended for worldwide audiences and most of the world isn't Christian.

  • Polos

    If the Bible puts bestiality right there along with homosexuality, Phil R. didn't write the Bible. What the queers and their compadres hate is that God, the author of the Bible, doesn't approve of their choice of anal sex nor does he approve of adultery. Human can't pick and choose, so the liberal left fights against those that bring up the Bible, like Phil. Hypocrites that you all are!……as Jesus said, “if people don't proclaim the truth, the rocks themselves will speak up.” Now you know why the early Christians were martyrs, and people wanted them to shut up, just like the liberal homos of today.

  • Sylvia Gilley

    I love Duck Dynasty and I love Phil who cares what he said they knew how he was when they put the family on the air. Get over it…

  • Rugiada Rossa

    The Robertson family will bind together. Why are gay rights more important than quoting the Bible. That is all Mr Phil did after all. Are we going to censure the Pope next? Come on people, wake up….are you not seeing you feel the rights of the sinners are more important than those of the believers?

  • Brandi Wagemann

    Im not watching til PHIL IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • youdontneedmyname

    big·ot

    noun ˈbi-gət

    : a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. : a bigoted person; especially : a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)

    I just thought I would put the definition of Bigot on her since it seems to be being used a lot and now people will know the meaning…. also as I don't 100% agree with how the statements were made by Phil in the interview I do believe he had a right to say what he wanted as an American who believes in what the bible states, he should not have been treated unfairly, I wonder if someone were to interview a homosexual and they were to state their beliefs about how “hillbillies” live no one would bat an eye, even if it was “offensive” to them. I feel that we as a country are blinded, as one person posted the thing with Miley seems that we accept that or just shrug it off as nothing, I also think as a country we have become too sensitive to what others say, and again if something is said that some minority doesn't like then yes I believe they throw temper tantrums until they get their way, and I think places like A&E who cave to the temper tantrum just encourage the behavior, instead of saying sorry about what he said but grow a pair, buck up and go on with your life, I find this to be a bit one sided as it seems the network is taking GLAAD's side on all this, they also stated that they ran a series called “the bible” hmmmmm, so if they can run that series, and the Bible states all that Phil said why is he getting fired again, think about it folks, seems to be a double standard to me.

  • TDunn

    I hope all of the Robertson's tell the network to SHOVE IT!!!!!

  • Call em as I see em

    In the previous article the head of A&E carefully considered all the evidence then still blew the decision. They should let Phil run the A&E network. The Christian bashing would stop. I will be contacting my cable provider to ask that A&E be removed from my cable network. I think we should boycott all of the other A&E Reality Shows just to show them where their bread is buttered.

  • rocketmail111

    It is so entertaining to see Human behavior in action, Why even watch TV when you can read the news clips? A&E asked a simple question and he simply answered it. What did you want him to say? Sorry I can't answer that question because you have groups like GLAAD that might get mad and make a phone call threating to do what exactly? This is, and always will be about money. As soon as A&E figures out that there are more supporters of the show than fudge packers, they will quickly run in another direction. It is so funny to watch…

  • smnguy84

    a & e is the biggest group of morons for what they have done to the show. but in all reality it comes down to a woman who pussy ass feeling got in the way. hey lady go back to your lifetime bullshit rerun shows and movies and leave one of the best shows alone. o wait I forgot YOUR A WOMAN WHO THINKS THAT SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING BUT IN ALL REALITY, REALITY TV SHOWS ARE BASED ON THE RESPONSES OF THE PUBLIC AND THE VIEWERS WHO BACK THE SHOWS. sO BRING PHIL BACK AND GO BACK IN YOUR HOLE CRYING TO THE NEXT LIFETIME MOVIE YOUR GONNA WATCH.

  • eric whitehair

    I THINK EVERY BODY SHOUD STOP CALLING EACH OTHER IDOTS AND OTHER NAMES. PHILL DIDNT CALL ANYBODY NAMES. HE JUST VOICED HIS BELIVE. HE SHOULD NOT BEEN FIRED. IT DONT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH. IT HAS TO DO WITH BEING ABLE TO BELIVE WHAT YOU WANT TO. THATS WHY MILLIONS OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN HAVE GAVE THEIR LIFE SO THAT ANYBODY CAN BELIVE WHAT THEY WANT TO AND NOT BE BASHED FOR IT AND FIRED FOR IT. IF YOU WORKED AT ANY NORMAL JOB AND STATED WHAT YOU BELIVE AND THEN GOT FIRED FOR IT. THEN YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO SUE THE HELL OUT OF THAT COMPANY. YOU MAY NOT BELIVE IN WHAT HE SAID GUESS WHAT YOU DONT HAVE TO WATCH IT. JUST LIKE IF YOU DONT BELIVE IN A WAY OF LIFE YOU DONT HAVE TO LIVE THAT WAY. THATS WHAT THE GOOD OLE USA WAS MADE FOR SO PERSON CAN LIVE THE WAY THEY WANT. PHILL IS A LOVING MAN WHO BELIVES IN THE WAY THE BIBLE TELLS US TO LIVE. YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO LOCK YOUR HOUSE OR AFRAID TO LET YOU KIDS GO TO THE PARK. IF YOU WANT TO BE GAY STRAIT OR WHAT EVER. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO AND SAY WHAT YOU THINK AND NOT GET FIRED. WAY DOES SOMEONE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE AFRIAD OF SAYING WHAT THEY THINK BECAUSE THEY MIGHT HURT SOME ONES FEELINGS THE WORLD JUST NEEDS TO GET OVER IT SELF AND JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE HOW EVER YOU WANT.

  • nessa

    Gods word isn't bigotry, God word is the ultimate law. Everyone will one day know hopefully when its not too late, what Phil knows. He isn't speaking hatred, he simply speaking the truth and that's Gods word, if you don't like it take it up with God

  • Guesst

    Our family and friends are going to boycott and product or service that is advertised on A&E, and we are calling and emailing many others to do the same. Maybe GLAAD will reimburse them for the huge loss in revenue and viewers………….

  • Daniel Roberson

    We love to use provocative terms like bigot and hater and intolerant and bullying. But these terms clearly describe anyone who does agree with the Glaad propaganda, Even if you clearly tells them just like you would tell any of those practicing sexual acts that the bible prohibits. They are loved by God but their sin is unacceptable to him. These words of love are taken as ignorant and bigoted. There is no reasoning with them. It remind me of Genesis 19 the men of Sodom during the time of Lot. Lots words of love fell on deaf ears because they wanted the sex they wanted and that was that. Unconditional love and unconditional acceptance are not the same thing. God love gay people unconditionally. And that's the attitude we must have toward them. But God does not accept every thing we do. That's why he gave us his commandment to a world that he loves unconditionally so that we would know what is unacceptable to him.

  • j sams

    Mr Robertson has the same right as any other human on this earth to speak his mind we are living in the land of I m offended he tells it like he sees it go phil

  • Tired of the BS

    All of you people that are defunding this guy for bashing gays and defending his 1st amendment rights ( which doesnt apply in this instance..that has to do with the government) are the same people who were calling for Martin Bashir's head when he called Sara Palin an idiot. So how can you only have it one way people? Where is his freedom of speech right? All you conservatives were outraged and MSNB fired him because of your outrage at what he said. The thing with religion is you hide behind the vail Christians are no different from Muslins..your all weak and full of (fill in the blank). The same as all politican's (thats both party's..just a bunch of Hypocrites) and people in general!!! You all think you are better then everyone else.

    • FearTheBeard

      @j sams You are funny, Defunding? Christians and Muslims are the same, we are weak? Do you have a point to be made? Can you contribute to this discussion? It is ok for you to not like us religious (fill in your faith of choice) individuals. As it is ok for me to not like those that are not. The bible does not tell anyone , anywhere that we have to like everyone, only to treat all Like JC would. I have friends that are homosexuals and they live in sin. I too am a sinner. This does not mean I hate or dislike gays or lesbians just that according to my religion it is a sin. Because they are my friends does not make me sin and engage in their behavior, nor do my sins create an environment for them to sin. I am not better then anyone I just have a belief that helps guide myself thru life. The duck guy expressed his view that is based in his religious beliefs, beliefs that A&E knew and understood. Are they not now firing him for those same beliefs? Are we not protected from those who do not believe what I do to fire me for my beliefs? Please come to the table informed and with a valid point.

  • Joe Momma

    If im not mistaken, wasnt phil being interviewed? so in order for him to speak about this wouldnt he have to answer the question to which he was asked? why is everyone freaking out about this when there's countless amounts of videos on youtube about his belief on homosexuals? its not an issue then because the media didnt fucking make him out to be some radical right wing conservative. Leave the man alone. A&E and the sponsors had no problem with the man before with all of these religious videos up on youtube…but now because of a GQ interview they are going to ban him from the show? makes no fucking sense…oh wait, yeah it does…because all of these special groups suchs as GLAAD have such a pull on what happens. Because if something offends them then its considered hate or discrimination! absolutely absurd… i will forever support phil robertson and the rest of his family, because they are just normal every day americans…who are educated, hold family values close to their heart, and are not afraid to speak their mind. He was in no way stating that he would treat the LGBT population any different. For christ's sake, he had a gay photographer take pictures of his dogs on the show!

  • del

    What is GLAAD “Gay Lezbo An A$$ Dippers”. A&E lost me as a viewer they can catter to all the weirds of the world I'll stay with Phil an the normal people..

  • ctznwatch

    A&E, Guess what? you just lost LOTS OF viewers. and…. I will make every effort to make sure everyone knows about this. I will no longer support your programs and will request my cable to remove you from my choice of channels. I will take into account the companies that paid for their advertisement with you and will not support them either. Phil was one of the best! but you lost. Next time maybe you should not ask the question. YOU LOST! You deserve that Duck Dynasty leaves you standing with no revenue.

  • del

    “tired of BS” you r an idiot. Free speech gives one the right to speak out openly on what he or she would like. It has nothing to do about the government. U dippers an smakers dream up all the crap u can to defend what u r doing in sin. U have ur gay parades that we have to deal with so why can't phil say what he wants. A&E hung them selves because all the dippers an smakers don't watch Duck D because they say a little pray at the end. Which offens u weirds.. so BS go back to ur boyfriend an pound it out.

  • Marksgv

    It's funny, conservatives just don't understand what has happened around them. Using the Bible to inform your personal opinion to justify bias, ie., racism, sexism is not acceptable today. I mean, it was even acceptable to use the Bible to justify slavery in the past. But, that process took generations, as demographics changed. The Bible certainly hasn't changed. With gays and lesbians, that process is accelerated thanks to the internet. Every one can have their voice heard now, and demand respect. The debate happens in months and days, rather than years. So saying that it is his belief based on religion isn't working anymore, because the world has moved forward. As soon as a critical mass is hit, the rules change immediately. Far too quickly for many to adapt to or understand, thus the incredibly angry, loud and bitter concentrated reaction.

    The worst part is the hypocrisy of the right wing media. Hannity was demanding a personality on MSNBC to be fired for something he said, but now screams free speech when someone who he agrees with is suspended. Just manipulation at its most base, just keep stirring up the fear and anger.

    • FearTheBeard

      How was he being a racist or sexist or inciting anger towards homosexuals for speaking about HIS beliefs? Where in the bible is it filled with hatred and racism?

  • billy the kid

    Ever worked on a Sunday? Ever had shell fish? I bet that bigot doesn't think he is going to ” hell “, for eating crawfish. Traditional Christian beliefs are ridiculous and made up by man. Have you seen his video, in 2010, where he goes off about ” them “. This guy picked the most hateful portions of the bible, to express his hate, and used them as his excuse for his hate. He had every right to say what he said. No one has told him he couldn't say it. He gave a ridiculous answer to a question and then used the most corrupt thing in the history of man ( religion ), as his reason. And for all you ” Christians “, who most haven't read the bible, Jesus ( no proof he existed ) would have looked like the guy you buy gas from… not a white guy with flowing brown locks. Religion is so silly.

    • del

      You make as much sense as using Billy the Kid! He gave his beliefs an got fired. Now that is sad. Guess all A&E eecs are smackers an packers like you billy.

      • billy the kid

        Excellent. Let the hate flow. The problem with ” Christians ” is that they are right. They believe in a make believe thing and nothing will change their mind. There is no ability to put yourself in their shoes or give in a little. Have you read the bible from cover to cover? The story of Jesus was story that SEVERAL religions used prior to Jesus, in the Med. Mythra and Horus are two of the more known gods, to have many of the same things happen to them as Jesus.

    • Katy Treptau

      I think you should do some more history about your (no proof Jesus existed) comment.

      • billy the kid

        What proof is there, that he was ever on this planet?

  • Katy Treptau

    You are punishing someone for practicing their right to freedom of speech. He did not just target homosexuality but also adultery etc. why is he being punished for his Christian values? It's ok to watch a young woman be half naked or naked on TV and it freedom of expression but this Christian man is under fire for his freedom of speech. Our country is so screwed up. Not to mention he did NOT bash them. Like he said he loves everyone equally it's up to God to do the judging not him. Thank you phill R. For taking a stand for your believes.

  • mike a.

    I bet the same people who all hate Phil for his comments based on his Christian beliefs, still celebrate our Christian holidays…Christmas, Easter… bet they're upset when they don't get a Christmas bonus! Bet these people don't even realize they are celebrating the birthday of the man/god where Phil's religion originated.

  • Val

    I just don't understand why people want to argue about what God says is true. Phil was only stating what God has said is to be true. If you don't trust the Lord as your personal Lord and Savior and turn from your sin….this includes homosexuality, alcohol, lying, adultery, and so many more…then you will die in your sins and you will face judgement day before Great God Almighty and you will send yourself to Hell because you did not trust in His Son Jesus. Furthermore, what happen to freedom of speech and the ability to think and speak for myself. We are no longer a free nation when we cannot speak what is in our hearts for fear that someone is going to bash everything that we say. Everyone has the right to live they way they want, just don't expect everyone to agree with it.

  • dingus mcCord

    I bet A&E would have no problem if they had some show about muslims and the muslims said they disapproved of gayness .

  • Kool Kat Judy

    Duck Dynasty will go on, thankfully, and gay living will continue to be in this world. As I am a Christian it is a sin. We all sin. Phil stated his beliefs in an interview where it appears he was set up with the question as the interviewer knew full well this mans beliefs……just watch the show.. The media knows how to set up who they feel like setting up and yes, it is usually the good Christians and those of us who believe in God and Jesus. So Phil is pulled by some dorky non-believing executive. Why is it that when (the minority) non-believers complain about “something” like the Pledge of Allegiance , In God we Trust etc. “God” gets pulled…if you don't like the comment don't read the article!!! If the executive didn't like what was said then he should have resigned, not let Phil go. When the little middle school girl in Cranston RI didn't like the prayer banner on the wall, an entire city had to cave into one little bratty 16 year olds “wha, wha, wha” I'm offended. Well she was the only one so remove her from the school. I am so tired of anti-Christians bull. We need good Christian programs back on TV and good Christian people and parents out there raising their kids with God in their lives and maybe , just maybe….our kids will stop killing!!!! Duck Dynasty, Little House on the Praire and Leave it to Beaver…..you ROCK!!!!

  • Common Sense Mike

    Whether they are Christian beliefs or not it is what he believes and is his opinion which the last time I looked was protected by the First Amendment. Where does A&E get off punishing him for his beliefs? I know the reason, its because his comments are not politically correct and might hurt their ratings! Hypocritical BS!!!!! A&E, you as an organization should grow a pair and stand up for your artists.

    if this was some Hollywood left-wing half-wit espousing the usual nonsense it would be looked at as the absolute truth irrespective of the fact that 99.9% of those clowns have no clue how the real world works.

    This is pathetic really, much ado about nothing!

  • Belinda

    What ever happened to freedom of speech? I'm not condoning what Phil said however, when I hear things that I might feel are unpleasant or don't care to listen to I either listen or don't. I can turn it off or carry my own opinion. This is communism, to tell people they should only speak about what is politically correct is crazy. If what he says offends people, then these people should not listen and have the right to not endorse his program by not watching. I believe people have a right to their own opinion and I will have mine, but I still respect them as an individual with their own choices and opinions.

    • billy the kid

      Belinda,
      If he owned the network that his shoe came on, then I see your point. No one is saying he can't say what he wants. He has bosses, owners, and sponsors ( many who probably have gay relatives or friends )to answer to. He was an idiot for saying what he said, to a national publication. His video in 2010, shows his loathing and hatred for gays much better, than this magazine interview. Look at the video, before you blindly support the man.

  • John Rogers

    No person, entity, department, government. has the right to tell a citizen that his belief is wrong. A&E was not right for the suspension. It was not aired on their station. A&E is just like this country trying to be politically correct about everything. Get over it. Opinions and beliefs are fundamental rights of all americans. If they didn't agree with it put a statement out that his beliefs and views are not the same as A&E. They can do that on any show. But no they want to follow suit with being politically correct. Jeesh we are becoming robots more and more. Whats next? Wild E Coyote pulled from the cartoon network for assaulting and harassing the Road Runner?

    It warms my heart to see that A&E may lose their top rated show over their desire to not offend the favorite Sacred Cow of the left…the gays.

    I believe everyone has a right to live their life how they choose. If I don't agree with everyone's choices and I choose to say that it doesn't make me a bigot, it is my opinion. It doesn't affect my every day dealing with people, it is just my opinion. Maybe the DD group should have claimed bigotry when they were shown the door of the upper class NY hotel because they didn't dress right. I am tired of being censored because I might say something that some “minority” group my be offended. I am really getting tired of being held hostage because I am a minority. GET OVER IT – IT WAS AN OPINION and no more! Once upon a time we fought for everyone's right to have an opinion, now we only fight for minority groups’ right to have an opinion. If you don't like it don't watch! I personally think it is a real issue that we have the moral minority deciding what we can and can't watch and what we can and can't say and whose opinion deserves to be heard! Censorship is alive and well and living in the US!!!!

  • John Rogers

    We need to send the message to the sponsors of A&E that we are boycotting their products until such time Phil is reinstated or the company's like Under Armor come out and support Phil. Money is the way to make them change. Boycott Basspro shops, Cabellas, Walmart and send them a CHRISTmas message.

  • Wayne

    I'll tell you all straight out, Phil is right, but I'll go one step more. Take all the gay's and put them on a island and let them go at it all they want, but don't condemn everyone else because they don't believe as you. If you don't agree or believe the same as me, well that's your right, as with anyone else they have a right to speak what they believe. Believing in what each one does is what makes this country what it is. It doesn't matter what faith you have of don't, believe what you will and respect the rights of others to believe what they will. Enough said

  • FRee Speech

    Free Speech only belongs to the Gays, Black's and Latino's all the rest of us must commit suicide I guess. I am so very tired of P C in this country. I am finally fed up with the Gay issues it is relentless. He did not BASH the gay he answered a question.
    We have no right to believe what we believe we must believe what the left tells us to believe. That is how we got OBAMA! It is time that the majority rise up and tell them to stuff it where the sun does not shine. You do not have anymore rights than anybody and nobody gives a damn that you are a butt wrangler get over it.

  • Darryl

    Leave A&E and go to a different network. Obviously there has already been a breach of contract.

  • Ron

    I haven't watched a full episode of Duck Dynasty ever, however suspending the “Patriarch” for giving his opinion is ridiculous. This is not inciting hatred. I think adultery is a sin but I'm not inciting hate towards those who commit it. I don't encourage anyone to treat an adulterer differently but if you ask me my opinion on it I will tell you. Some think certain actions are sin and some don't. It doesn't definitively settle the issue or incite hatred. Freedom of speech has two sides. If you don't want to hear someones opinion don't ask them. Their opinion could be right or wrong but it is their right to express it. A&E is only concerned about ratings anyway. They couldn't care less about the issue in reality or anyones feelings so long as it doesn't affect their ratings.

  • Grouchytoday

    I was raised in a country with freedom of speech. I may not agree with him but in this country you have to be a nobody to have an opinion.

  • Give the guy a break!

    Boycott all A&E advertisers until Phil is brought back and A&E apologizes.

  • Greg

    Leave Phil alone! He has a valid opinion. Just for speaking in love, you are sensorineural him, why? Can he not share his opinion? There is something called the First Amendment. It was written for you, Phil ad every other citizen. Thank you for letting me speak,
    Greg

    • Alianna Busby

      He has a TV contract… there are speaking clauses in those to protect company image… Does A&E have to accept that Phil, as an employee represents them. YES! And a valid opinion does not legitimize bigotry, hate, or evil either.

  • Bill of Rights supporter

    It is about time some one stood up for something he or she believed in. We are steadily either giving up our rights are letting some group take our rights away. A&E is wrong…honestly, what they appear do being doing goes against everything my family and other Americans have fought and died for…Thank you Phil Robertson for being an American…put your hat in the President race for us…help us take our country back…Please

  • Richard Weeks

    Robertson's views are exactly the same as the Pope's.Let's see GLAAD try to get the Pope fired.

    • Alianna Busby

      The pope does not work for a proclamed Arts and Entertainment channel… he works for a God channel. If you think about it, arts, entertainment, theater, have all been very very enhanced by the LGBT community and has embraced it for years, why would you even think A&E would put up with homophobic comments?

  • Academicjock

    People seem to forget that, in general, an employee (Robertson) works at the pleasure of the employer (A&E). When the employee violates the employers policy or image, the employer may exercise their right to NOT employ the employee. So, Robertson has every RIGHT to say whatever he pleases and he also must take responsibility for any support or backlash from what he says. Since A&E apparently does not support or condone homophobic or racist comments from its employees and, disguised by his religious umbrella, Phil made homophobic and racist comments (his right to do so), PHIL'S GONE. What is the big deal? I'd bet that a majority of the people supporting Phil also have no problem with Limbuagh calling Sandra Fluke a “SLUT” and demanding that she video all of her sexual activity so Limbaugh can see what he is “paying for” (even though he didn't pay a penny for Fluke's health care insurance which makes him sort of a pervert).

    • friday

      GQ wasn't on A&E time, his time. If that is the case then your employer could fire you for the comment you made or the toilet paper you use.

      • Alianna Busby

        And you are sure Phil's contract for television does not include company image clauses? Hrmmm… I think you are reaching for straws there bud. Maybe you should rethink how many lawyers are involved in TV contracts… TV personalities lose their jobs for saying and doing stupid shit all the time…. Sheen there, done that.

        • m00tpoint

          Does your employer have the right to fire YOU for YOUR comments on this issue? Yes or no?

  • Todd Chabot

    I don't watch duck dynasty don't read GQ can't really say this is news. However I'm sure he's not the first or last to say these things. Prejudice is really the problem however those get built over time with asscoiations people assemble. I'm a homosapien so are you. What we believe makes me who i am and what you believe is what makes you you. Question is can we all get along. There is a lot more offensive things on tv than this. Frustration from our lawmakers is only going to get worse next year as. The Strong carry the weak and the weak are a plenty as boomers retire and have no retirements. We people have to work together. Stop blaming ,I know many of christians or atheists or peopleof any belief that would show compassion for all humana in tragedy as we have witnessed before after the dust settles our preset ideaology takes over.

  • Beverley Davis

    Phil has a Master's Degree in education. That's at least eight more years than the average Obama supporter.

  • SPIKE666

    A&E, and Walt Disney who owns 50% of A&E, obviously are against Christians. Even cutting the name Jesus out of the show. Concerning Homosexuals, I believed in “live and let live”…not now, special interests group will attack anyone who disagrees with them. Down with gay A&E, up with freedom of speach.

    A&E's managers love homosexuals, who is kidding who?

  • friday

    Ok, I have a question for the gay/lesbian community. I have a hard time with all of these “rights” being pushed down my throat. Quite frankly I don't give a da&$ who or how you sleep with someone. If you are into bondage or toys none of my business. So please stop making it my business. Have some decorum. Some self respect. If heterosexuals were to march like the gay / lesbian community all hell would break loose. This is America. Our motto is in God we trust. There are a lot of God fearing g/l out there. And to bash the Holy Bible, the word of an Almighty God to some is the greatest hate of all. The bible commands that he spread the word of God. He is bringing the truth as he sees it, reads it and understands it. It is said that the Bible is the LIVING word. Therefore we each read what God wants us to see. Knock it off and Grow the F up! He has as much right to his opinion as you do. And as I see it what you are doing is a hate crime in itself. If you don't like the man don't watch.

  • chalijo

    Phil Robertson is no Christian. He may spout the words from the bible just as so many people here do, but these people are the same type who would use scripture to justify slavery. You people are who the world sees as hypocritical in your actions. You spout Christianity but don't say anything when America bombs innocent people all over the world. You brought the bible along and killed off a nation of people already inhabiting this land. Sean Hannity ,Sarah Palin and their ilk will lead you all into destruction. They get rich with the hatred they preach. The blind leading the blind.

    • buffalowade1

      SLAVER, REALLY!!! You actually believe what your spouting. WTF is wrong with you? Are you really that screwed up in the head.

      • chalijo

        You seem blinded by your own warped thinking. It's people like you who are afraid of the truth. I don't agree with homosexuality but I'm not blind as to the so called righteousness of this country either.

        • buffalowade1

          NO, we don't bomb innocent people. Just terrorists and rouge regimes that kill and oppress other nations and their own people. Oh and Dictators like Hitler and Saddam that commit mass murders. And lets not forget about all those death camps that still exist today like North Korea. Like I said REALLY!!! ARE YOU THAT SREWED UP IN YOUR THINKING. You have a lot to learn about this country's military. You take your freedom here for granted. A lot of good people died so you could live free here. You just don't get it do you. You don't sound very American to me.

          • chalijo

            I'm a Vietnam Era Vet. We bombed that country killed all those people, including many guys I knew well and found out later it was over political ego. My best friend was shot three times in the gut you punk. Don't you ever question my knowledge or patriotism.

          • buffalowade1

            Yeah war is never pretty, and you say we bombed all those innocent people, same ones that shot your friend 3 times. Your lucky you don't live in North Korea or Iran. They would have executed you for making such a statement. Your are far from being a true patriot. I to remember the Vietnam conflict, when my father came home off that plane and was greeted by you bleeding heart libs holding signs screaming baby killers and other foul crap. I'm 55 now and as far as being a punk I'd love for you to say that to my face, you non-Christian, non-patriotic coward. I don't believe you were ever a vet and if you were you surely were a deserter. I'd have shot you myself for spouting that crap about America bombing innocents all over the world. You need to take your sorry anti-American coward ars and leave America with all your anti-American baby killing screamers with you. You are a disgrace to the military. What you say to that Bitch.

          • chalijo

            Don't cry fool. People like you and Dick Cheney will burn in hell. You won't shoot anybody. Your Dad was in Nam not your cowardly ass. He probably pukes every time he sees your punk ass. Dick Cheney killed more Americans that bin Ladin ever did. You probably follow people like drugged out Rush Limbaugh, Bitch Hannity, and wife beating Glen Beck. None of them have much education and not one of them served in the armed forces. In fact what branch was your pig ass in? I've seen boys like you. you're OK if you got people with you but your ass won't say shit by your punk ass self. That's why you talk shit through a blog ho.

    So, let me get this straight. People are screaming and crying over how wonderful this man is, even though he admits he was a pretty heavy sinner himself, AND his wife has gone on the air (in the show no less) to suggest he was abusive and mean to her in their marriage… and yet, he is ragging on gays for being evil.

    Y'know, I'm all for religion. If it gives you hope, brings you community, by all means. The second you use it to demean the lives of others, you've done messed it up. I'm really getting tired of this childish gay bashing. The bible itself says that eating Shellfish, Pork, touching the skin of a Pig (Football!), and wearing blended fibers are JUST AS MUCH A SIN AS GAY SEX.

    I know people want to cherry pick the bible verses. They want to say that what they love is moral and just. But I bet half the people throwing a tantrum over this guy getting the boot had sex before marriage (the bible calls for you to stone them to death for that, btw, especially the deflowered woman), cram their maw with BBQ, and probably don't even go to Church on Sundays, or work during Sundays (again, for this, the Bible calls you be put to death).

    I leave you with this single bible verse, one of those verses that gets forgotten by a lot of people…

    James 4:12.

    “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you–who are you to judge your neighbor?”

    Basically? If God wants to Judge them, LET HIM JUDGE THEM. It's his job, NOT YOURS, and you are trying to take over your God's position as Judge, and I'm figure he'd be a bit more pissed off at you trying to say you're better at his job than he is.

    • friday

      The man never said he was holier or that he was without sin. He just stated what he personally got out of the Bible. His beliefs. You are right we should not judge lest we ourselves be judged. But we as Christians are called to spread the gospel in every land. What a huge discussion this has opened up over the world.

    • buffalowade1

      You are pretty screwed up in your thinking. your lack of morals and upbringing are very telling.

  • Joyce

    Really? While I don't agree with what Phil said, he had the right to say it. Aren't there more important issues we could be tackling. How about the stupid KKK who can march wherever they want or even worse – that zealot religious group that rallies at our soldiers’ funerals holding signs that say stuff like “God hates soldiers”? Why don't you anti-Phil fanatics take on the bigger issues? Or is it just easier to take on one as opposed to taking on a whole group?

  • JONJON

  • s riggs

    If America is truly a free country, Phil has the right to his opinion. Nobody is forcing people who disagree with him, to watch his show or read his article. There are shows on tv starring actors with different opinions than mine. I have the choice whether or not to support their shows. America can speak by not watching Ducky Dynasty if they disagree with Phil, and then the show's ratings will reflect their decision.

    • Alianna Busby

      And his employer has every right to discipline him as a contractual paid representative of their company for making an ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT channel statement and as an employee he does represent their brand so must always represent the company in media such as a major magazine article. Of course, Phil is not articulate, nor is he bound not speak out his beliefs, his job though does depend on it. I think A&E is more concerned with it's image than Phil's…

    • ascot

  • Mark

    What is the difference, Phil does have rights but he doesn't have the right to decide whether or not gays will go to heaven, not ever seen a black man being mistreated in Louisiana is because he has his eyes closed on the real world which is why he spends most of his time killing things. There is a mean side to Phil, I thought starting a loud chainsaw then proceeding to cut there doll house was a limitless too much. I think there are two Phil's and trust me, they have family shit unlike all this acting they do on Duck Dynasty. I'm neither a republican or democrat and besides who cares what party you prefer. Phil if he had a brain besides telling everyone to kill ducks…….”gee I wonder why”. It took many lives and if he truly hasn't seen a black man being mistreated in Louisiana for a man his age, then I call him a straight out liar. This kind of language whether intended or not has been heard before in history. Many people who have said far less have had their entire life's career ended. Willy and all you people stop judging what God interprets in the bible. Theologians I think in general have the right idea, if its a sin to be gay then just by acknowledging that God is the King and sent his only son to forgive us for our sins. Why are gays any less sinners then the rest of us. Phil went way too far and I truly think much less of him for it. Duck Dynasty is over. I pray for all people regardless of who, what, and in which God they believe in. We are all here for a purpose and its not to make others feel less then the beautiful people most can be. I pray for Phil too, unless I'm wrong Phil isn't a theologian. Let people be as they are and if being gay is a sin then I'm sure our all knowing God will make the decision who will see his kingdom. God Bless everyone here.

    • buffalowade1

      You don't get it. He's saying you do your thing and I'll do mine. And in the the end God will judge you. In other words one day you will stand before God to be Judged!!! He's not Judging anyone. He is only stating his beliefs as in the Holy Bible he reads. Maybe we should rewrite the Bible that would make the gay community feel better about what they are doing.

    • Alianna Busby

      Thank you, but this forum is so full of foaming at the mouth haters and bigots with guns that it wouldn't surprise me if one ALL CAP type guy goes out and kills a guy man for sport in the name of phil and says something like ” I thought it was a duck?” Haters are gonna hate Mark. I am like you, a moderate watching Fox news and the progressive media polarize us. I, personally would put my bet with the gays over the rednecks in this match, we are at a pre-civil war stage nationally according to the rhetoric I see… one spark could set this off which is very scary. I would see the gay and progressive agenda as being the Emancipation Proclamation of this impending war between the Progressive States of America (The Union) and the same old Confederate States of America… same old civil war just gay rights or rather the larger civil rights (including immigration) replacing the slavery issue. Hell we already have Gay States and Anti-Gay States. Surprisingly its the same Abortion allowed States and Anti-Abortion States. If our culture has not changed from the 1850s for real then a second American Civil war is an absolute certainty. Phil is everything Confederate… sorry, that is simple truth.

        I can't tell you how much I agree, its all about power and payoffs. I often wonder why a guy making 400 thousand a year accepts a 150 thousand dollar a year job being Governor. I didnt research the exact numbers but that speaks volumes. This country has polarized itself from everyone. Bush made sure of that. Obama is clueless and for once I really thought we had a chance at transparency. Obama although I truly think he meant well. The republicans voted everyone of his ideas out the door. How can any country or president do anything. We are one shot away folks and the US is so close to another civil war. If the US goes to war with or for the Ukrainian people, no one will come helping. I was recently in Europe and everyone I spoke to thinks we are the most arrogant asses in the world. I couldn't agree more. We don't need more wars, we need jobs a and good ones too. Yet all we have is 7.50 per hour slave wages. Our government put us trillions of dollars in debt. Wtf happened and what fools are we. At least these poor bastards in the Ukraine will fight and died for their cause. We lost what America used to be all about. Oh and thank God Piers Morgan is going back. Horrible interviewer who against guys like Jesse Ventura got spanked on National TV. Anyway jobs my ass people. We lost all of them to China and India. We are very close to ww3

    I am writing to express my disgust of the public lewd remarks made by Storage Wars actors Chris Morelli and Tad Eaton.

    It is of my opinion, that we as Americans are entitled to our civil liberties, BUT to make lewd remarks as the one that Chris Morelli and Tad Eaton stated is utterly intolerable.

    To publicly make a statement about anus and vagina is absolutely inappropriate and unprofessional.

    A & e took action against Phil Robertson for expressing his religious views, yet I find it hypocritical that the executives at A & E not to take reprimanding action against Chris Morelli and Tad Eaton for using offensive words to our fragile society.

    How can a society as ours continue in prosperity and dexterity if we lived a double standard by condemning and violating ones 1st amendment rights
    while yet condoning the very offenses of individuals that do not hold civility and proper manners in public?

    I hope this letter will cause you to think about the many Americans who are divided by this issue and stand for principle as well as values.

    Storage Wars actors Chris Morelli and Tad Eaton should be absolutely held responsible for their lewd public comments and should be made an example
    by A & E of the importance of Public civility.

    But, I am a Christian, and object to the pornographic content of most TV programs.

    So, I change channels, after seeing who pays for that smut, and then, I talk to my huge extended family, (over a hundred folks), about the advertisers who prefer to pervert their community, their lives, and their government!

    • Brandy Lopez

      he was asked a question and answered truthfully…. What wrong is that he is be persecuted for what he said when he didn't make the rules, God did. God destroyed a whole city (Sodom and Gomorrah, Gen.19) because of the exact things Phil listed as a sin….It's God's laws not Phil's and I would rather go by God's laws than society's. He never said anything that made it a hate crime he just stated his opinion (which are God's law) when asked. He also said that he wouldn't treat anyone with disrespect that was different from him but everyone is leaving that out because they want it to look bad.Why should the everyone else be entitled to speak their thought and beliefs except for Christians????? I didn't like it when the show was on with Ellen expressing her right to be gay on t.v. so I didn't watch the show and I didn't read any article on her because I don't agree with her but she is entitled to her right but so is Phil and everyone else…if you don't like it don't watch the show and don't read his books or any articles on him or about him and stop being such a big cry baby because someone doesn't share your beliefs.

      he is just stating what the Bible says…he didn't say anything about hating them, just that their actions are a sin…he is not being hateful, only responding to a question asked. not all gays are offended by his statement either because everyone is entitled to their opinion. If he said something that was hateful like everyone should hate gay people or that he hated gay people then yes he would be wrong but he didn't.

  • mitch

    ya know they ask a opinion that's what they got ask me no questions ill tell you lies leave him alone why fuck up a good thing!!!!!!!

  • StellarShips1

    A&E should do the right thing considering management doesn't have the character to stand the hypocrisy of GLAAD demands. Let the show fold and release the show for greener pastures. Apparently “Duck Dynasty” isn't a reality show but neither is it isn't a political platform of haters. The supporters of GLAAD don't mind dishing out derogatory rhetoric toward the public at large yet don't understand the simple freedoms allowed by the citizens.

  • Sandra

    93,000 people signed a petition to oust Phil Robertson. What is that compared to14,000,000 who watch the show, even reruns. Is the upper echelon of society now controlled by homosexuals? I think the majority of this world are heterosexual.

  • truckerich

    All A&E is accomplishing real good is losing money. “LOTS” Just showing there asses. A&E better be real careful with the Robinsons. Their at the line asking themselves if they should put the buck in someone else's pocket. Watch-it A&E. Everyday A&E, your losing big bucks. They just might shit-can you A&E. They don't need you. The PUBLIC just might shit-can you to.

    It is not about the Bible or what it says, it is about free speech rights and persecution for voicing your beliefs. It is very funny that the lbgt community wants us to accept their life choices, but then when someone expresses their religious beliefs they demand he be fired and vilified for those beliefs. A & E had better consult their lawyers because they are probably in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Look it up for yourselves. Title VII SEC 2000e section (701). It MUST apply to everyone equally! I may not agree with your opinions, but I will defend to the death your right to express them!!!

  • Matt Meyers

    DaveW, you really need to look at yourself in the mirror. I have a son who nearly died at birth, only to survive due to God's grace and intervention. Just because you don't believe in God or in the bible does NOT mean we have to accept your opinions or viewpoints. That is the great part about life, you can believe what you believe and we can believe what we believe. I believe in the bible, therefore I do believe that those who live alternative lifestyles are committing sin, but only God can judge anyone. I frankly don't have a problem with your lifestyle or choices, but believe you will face ultimate judgement from God. Live your life the way you want, but don't hate others when they disagree with you or your opinions or your lifestyle. If you don't like it, don't show your ignorance and stupidity, just go on your merry way and don't respond. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE has the right to their own beliefs, like them or not. I grew up being taught to respect all people no matter if I agree with them or not. Show some class and dignity when you respond and maybe more people will care about what you have to say.

    Phil Robertson for president

  • Mighty Mad Redneck

    When this is over Nancy Dubuc will be better known as Nancy “DeadDuck” for making such an idiotic, lame-brained decision. The woman is nothing but a PC dolt who shamefully allowed herself to be intimidated and manipulated by a small, extremist, clique of radical sexual deviants into making a decision that was immoral, unethical, hypocritical and, most stunningly, not in any way in the best interest of A&E, which will suffer a devastating loss of revenue when the Robertsons ultimately take their brand and go to another network that will treat them more decently. If I was on the board of directors for the A&E Network I'd be screaming for her head. If I was shareholder in the company I would be screaming for her head. She is an ignoramus and has just proven that the “Peter Principal” applies to her. She has risen to the level of her incompetence and has not business being at the helm of such a large media conglomerate. If she worked for me, she'd be SOOOO fired….

    I support Gay people in their right to live their lives free of violence and discrimination in the workforce, in housing, and yes, in marriage. I think it's the right thing to do as a Christian man, which I am. But my support is beginning to wane because of the constant attacks by the Gay Community on free speech. They think they own the rights to the First Amendment and it's privilege's.

    The constant din in their attempt to stifle free speech has left me questioning my support for the Gay community's other causes. I will not take back my support for the things that I mentioned above, but my support will be more tempered than it has been in the past.

    Hate speech has been the canard that keeps on giving since some politician came up with the phrase and entered it into the political lexicon. The time is now to take back the first amendment. No speech is free, until all speech is free! May that become true once again!

    Stupid A&E fa**ots

  • disqus_cLRLAG1Rzh

    A&E, Phil's employer made a business decision to suspend him. This is Free Market at work, them trying to protect their views and advertisers. We are protected by the first amendment, but it still pays to Think before you Speak!

    • falseprophet123

      If this is the, “Free market at work,” explain to me why an executive suspends the main draw of a reality show that is the highest rated reality show on cable TV, while, not only alienating it's sponsors who really don't care about what this guy said, because they're advertising on the highest rated TV show on cable and reaching all the people who watch it? I'll answer that because you seem not to realize how the free market works.
      The management of A&E made a rash decision about a character on a show who was asked a question about some issues that he felt strongly about. He answered them truthfully. He answered them honestly in a magazine that isn't part of the same corporation that A&E belongs to. What this is, is poor management by the people in charge at A&E. They just plugged a revenue source that won't be coming back.
      Here's something else that the network didn't take into consideration when they fired Robinson. When this whole thing gets sorted, and it won't get sorted in A&E's favor, guys like me, who have never watched one episode will watch the show when it moves to a new cable network.
      Now that, is how the free market, really works!

    • corday_d_armont

      Absolutely they have the right to fire anybody they want. But they really need to answer to their shareholders, they just threw away a millions.

  • Plebian12

    Not all Christians feel the same way as Robertson. Personally I find his comments out of line with Christ's message.

    Also, so much evidence exists now that being gay is not a choice but a biological imperative.

    Christians like me and my family don't deny science in favor of our prejudices. Many Christians are also speaking out against his comments.

    This is more political than religious. Don't be fooled.

    • falseprophet123

      You are right, it's more political than anything else. You shouldn't be fooled either. But, what makes this even more ridiculous, is the fact that A&E is cutting off it's nose to spite it's own face. The people who watch the show outnumber the people who find Phil Robinson's words to be hateful. A&E is killing a large, a very large, revenue stream while alienating an audience that makes them millions.

      This isn't competent management. These are grounds for immediate dismissal. This is no marketing ploy either. This doesn't reach the level of, ‘Bad publicity is better than no publicity at all.” The only level that this reaches is a network, who has the highest ranked cable reality show, kowtowing to a miniscule portion of the population who makes a little noise for awhile and goes on to the next, ‘injustice.”

      Finally, I'd like to get your source where, ” Many Christians are also speaking out against his comments,” comes from

    • corday_d_armont

      • Plebian12

        I encourage you to at least wiki homosexuality and the New Testament for just a brief look at the wide variety of opinions on that and other passages. Context, translation and the like are hotly debated.

        So you know the answers here?

        Moreover, this is text reinterpreted over time and now even the pope… From the church founded by an actual apostle and the church fathers has now relaxed this strict views in gays.

        What's more, the science is more realizable that interpretations of what is essentially literature or maybe even oral history if we starch it here.

        Science is based on verifiable objective observation and can be repeated time and again.

        What's your deal. I'm sorry but I just don't understand you. You watch this show on an invention created by the scientific principles evangelicals like to deny? Be consistent at least and don't take advantage of new discoveries brought on by genetics. Then you will have my respect.

  • Debbie

    Now GLADD is going after the sponsors inciting them to act. Unless those of us who do not agree with A & E's actions stand up to be counted, special interest machines will crowd out the majority voice. I wrote to A & E to voice my opinion and I wrote to Phil to express my family's support

    • corday_d_armont

      A systematic boycott of every company who advertises on A&E might be a nice thing to do. There are at least a hundred times the supporters of GLAD that should take part willingly.
      Hit them in the pocket book.

  • Alabama Moderate

    This man has the right to say what he believes. A&E has the right to fire him if they disagree with his beliefs. No one stopped him from speaking his mind. And no one can stop A&E from firing him. Good Lord people. Learn American Government. Freedom of Speech does not equal job security. Freedom of Speech means u cannot be imprisoned or prevented from speaking. It has nothing to do with your employment

    It strikes me that while many fans share the beliefs and lifestyle of the robertsons many others see them as an oddity or watch for a laugh.

      Really programs are the absolute cheapest to produce that exist.

      A&E's revenue for the next year will be more than $800,000,000.00 from the Duck Dynasty show. If they can't squeeze a profit out of that then they need to go back to business school. As for liberal audiences, who gives a duck.

      • Plebian12

        Where did you get this figure? Not disputing it per se just curious. A and E is owned by Disney and Hearst 50-50. There's your answer.

        Disney obviously can't embrace his viewpoint. Their leadership wouldn't want it.

      • Plebian12

        Oh And of course that number isn't right. Proceeds from the show and even all the product tie ins have not exceeded 400 million. That's really not that much considering its ratings.

    • Fag Hater

      You are truly an ignorant piece of living garbage. Ratings mean advertisers, which means money, you fool. Good grief!

  • hank bond, jr

    A number of years after the Civil War brought an end to slavery, the beginnings of segregation started to appear. One editorial in a Southern newspaper was half joking when it said things like “we will end up with a place for blacks on a train and a place for whites; a church for blacks and a church for whites; black schools and white schools; every thing will have a white one and a black one. This is stupid.” Well, everything in that editorial became reality.
    Now, we see our large, diverse population dividing along ideological lines. That this has led to political division is no big surprise. But it is becoming evident that the economic life of this nation is being twisted to suit ideology as well. Duck Dynasty will end up being on FOX. You heard it here first! Almost as certain, there could be law suits as well.
    Conservatives and some with open minds will side with the flock of Ducks. Liberals and some with open minds will be anti-Duck. Ideology and political preference are starting to wiggle their way into economic decisions. That was actually the genius of Murdock starting FOX. It purposely slants things to present the most favorable view of conservative ideas. They then call the regular networks who are fairly good at being neutral as the lame stream media, and when those networks say something good about a liberal idea or Democratic idea, FOX will have many saying, “See there!” If FOX gets caught in the act, Reilly or someone will say, “Hey, we were not serious about that. This is entertainment. Lighten up!” This strategy resulted in what we have now which is a third or more of Americans watch FOX for their news, and they take it seriously as if it were real news. FOX has made big bucks with this strategy. Yes, it has divided us more, but those are big bucks. Ol Hank

    Well here we go again, don't these liberals ever learn, from what I see uncle Phil did nothing wrong at all and it discusses me to see how is everybody wants to sit around and pontificate on how this man should have spoke that is called censorship I don't care what excuses you make and yes I include Fox news to which I am a fan of.
    To the people at glaad, you are the most disgusting people I have ever heard of , you want to pick and choose your battles ,well guess what, you got one, believe me God takes care of his own, you people are lower then the lowest form of bacteria there is , and right now you are lower than a child molester ,this is a good Christian man and a veteran and you want to slam him, for crying out loud, don't you know Muslims behead homosexuals, I don't see you out there protesting them, because you are a bunch of cowards, will guess what, I will refused to accept you until you accept us Christians this will not be the end of this, we are getting tired of being slammed by you anti-Christian idiots.
    Two a and E,you think you got us Christians by the you know what's , this was all for money and political gain you discuss me , it is sad to see that you want to censor what someone says , doing your picking and choosing, and I am going to pray real hard that the duck dynasty family leaves your idiotic station I will no longer be watching your station and I have blocked it out , you are the most anti-Christian people I have ever seen, you Libs never learn
    to my brother Phil, God bless you brother you did nothing at all wrong and believe me God is going to make this right , to me it seems there are just miserable people in this world , I too am a Christian and I believe everything that you said an I found nothing wrong with, I would ask you uncle Phil, do not change ,you are who you are and to me you are a great brother in Christ , to the rest of the duck dynasty family , I love you all , you have brought joy and laughter to millions of homes , and let me say this my brothers and sisters, God will take care of this , all I can do is make a request of you, that the family might think about , I would like to see you leave a and E and take a little time, off, then may be find a nice Christian TV station that will pick you up so you can continue to bring laughter and joy to our homes .
    and to the family, no worries we love you

    • J_Biggs

      liar.

  • justme

    I am a young white lesbian, and while I disagree with what Phil said about gays and Africans, I actually think he is still entitled to his believes. I believe in God but sometimes I do have trouble believing in the Bible. I was raised and taught that Christianity is about Love and its non judgmental. We all should love one another and act in his image. I think your sins are between you and God, only he can judge you. God knows whats in my heart, and while it may be love for a woman, it is still pure love, and I dont think he would ever punish me for that.
    I don't think Phil should be up there passing judgment on anyone but again this is America and it's his constitutional right. He may be fired and thats only because its bad publicity for the network.
    Everyone's comments are turning out to be black or white. They should try to see both sides. It was harsh what he was saying and he was quoting a book that is up for interpretation and also one that says to be Christ-like and that God is the ultimate judge, to love thy neighbor. I dont think its right to pick and choose what quotes and rules to follow. Just look at the story from both sides. Im glad Phil has such strong convictions and at least he has values he believes in. And quite frankly as long as the person puts God first, whats the big deal?

  • W W

    Didn't Phil compared gays to beastiality? I think that's what did it, else it was just his opinion.

    • J_Biggs

      No, he did not. He did however list the sins of the Christians bible.

  • Robin

    Really can't believe all these people having a hissy fit . This guy has made a killing from this idiotic show. Try having a friend or relative who is gay, and has to hear horrible insults every other day I'm sure blacks appreciate his comments too about how they were all happy before welfare, blah,blah ,blah . They had welfare before he was even born, so not sure how he saw so many happy black people. How could they be happy if they were already contaminated by welfare. It's a sad commentary on the intelligence of our citizens when they are hero- worshipping someone who doesn't even know basic history . Ok, let the vile insults begin, by all the defenders.

    • waldo

      Phil was right about welfare destroying the black family,it's also destroying the white family. I am about the same age as Phil and when I was young the black families were much like the whites with two parent homes. Welfare and other liberal changes brought us to the unraveling of the family unit. Welfare as you stated is older than Phil, but welfare in those days was food not debit cards and a way of life

    A & E do not know what “bashing” is, until now. They have gone and pissed off a lot of people to just please 1.7% of the U. S. population. They may have commited suicide by doing what they did. They have some decent programming, but I will take a second look at what I view in response to their actions. They sure have overblown something that the MEDIA hastaken and run with, I actually feel sorry for them! If you ask someone what they think, and they are not afraid to give an honest answer, using their background and belief system as the basis for their answer, what do you expect? It is refreshing to hear honest ansers and not the status quo “politically correct” answers. Now you may have opened a can of worms that you really did not want to open and find out what the silent majority REALLY think about life in the United States. Phil has his rights, just like every other person in the country which is upheld by the laws of this country. You stepped in it this time! I ahve been waiting for something like this for some time. It takes a lot to wake up the slumbering beast, but congratulation, you MAY have done it! Not everyone in this country thinks like the liberals and I certainly do not, just like Phil. I believe in almost everything that he does and so do a LOT of people. Let's hope this action of yours finally brings all of this into focus and you REALLY find out what the people are thinking. I also believe that the media, both written and oral, may have to back-peddle very quickly. And I hope that this does happen, the media deserves to be spanked by the people whom they supposedly report on and think they know. Dumb asses!

  • ProudVet

    America finally gets a clean family show, and the GLAAD decides to destroy it. Talk about creating an hostile environment for homosexuals, I think they just notched it up a couple pegs here.
    Homosexuals have created themselves into a political party, not a human rights organization, with all the power and influence that goes with it. It is acceptable in society to disagree or even hate a political ideology, so with that I hope they are prepared for the consequences of their actions. RIP

    After reading many of the posts here. I firmly believe some of the comments are so off the wall as not to benefit either view. Yet we wonder why politicians get nothing done. Facts, Phil said his beliefs. I am quite sure A&E has contract rules for interviews while the Robertsons are under contract. I really like there show and Phil, but do feel he is hard line. His religious views work for him, great. I have my own. So long as humans don't all look the same. We will always argue and fight. I have many gay friends, am a hunter, believe in a higher power. Does that make me a minority? I think not. I commend the religious folks for doing there do diligence and trying to teach the word of God. But force a belief upon another is wrong. For the other side, it is difficult and an up hill battle to love someone in a society that think its wrong. Yelling and insulting only makes the fight that much more difficult and over time these tpe of exchanges crumble away at your foundation weakening it. I wish people could just celebrate what a great country we live in, the freedoms we have. Understand our constitution and not look ignorant. And if we would get as angry and concerned over issues of government maybe the idiots in DC would do a better job.

I think Phil should be reinstated and the news media shut f”"” up about the whole thing.

    Nice that the Fox people are being reasonable and reflective. Rather than a knee jerk reaction that would instead of calling for dialogue, call for heads to roll. The same freedom that allows Robertson his opinion should apply to A&E. They feel the statements are not in line with the philosophy of their station and that is their opinion. Where is the outcry for their right to decide what kind of product they want to support.

    • Meathead

      Phil spoke the truth. A&E desires to suppress the truth. By doing so, A&E is spitting in the face of 97-percent of their viewers. A&E executives are about to experience the result of their stupidity.

      Can an employer fire an openly gay man for commenting in support of the homosexual lifestyle?

  • Jeff1911

    These left wing sissies go after Christians because they know the Muslims, who share a far more intolerable view of homosexuality, would call for their death. As Christians, we need to figuratively cut their heads off by going after their pocket books. California oranges? No thanks I buy Texas produce. Matt Damon runs his left wing mouth and I refuse to watch his movies. XYZ company sponsors Rachel Maddow, so I buy from company ABC. My singular efforts don't resort to squat but get a million or so others on board and we'd have something.

  • Kawika Balmoja

    I have a difference of opinion but I have no issues with what Mr. Robertson thinks or feels. I have gay members in my family and I teach them that they'll face this kind of stuff out there in the world… it is what it is. Am I offended? Not really. A little let down and hurt but not offended. I won't “demand” an apology either… for those who say that an apology is in order… get over yourselves… that kind of thinking shows how stuck in the mud most people are. I love the Duck Commander show and won't stop watching because of this… I guess I'm not as fragile or feeble as the majority of America has become… ef'n wussies.

      I am not gay nor was I offended. But I am angry with the hate being spewed by the bible thumpers posting here.

    When liberal art and communication offend Christians they get lectures on tolerance and open mindedness. When it goes the other way the liberals want apologies, boycotts and dismissals. This incident clearly was the last straw.

      ..and when Christians defend their religion they are fired by the networks and vilified by the liberal media…example, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, tea party.

        Yeah, poor Christians. No television stations, no radio talk shows, no schools, no publications, no politicians who ever declare their religiosity, and no place to find a church anywhere. They are SOOO suppressed in the USA — just like Jesus in Ancient Rome.
        What a bunch of whining crybabies! So “free enterprise” — the right of someone to NOT hire someone who is not fulfilling employment obligations — somehow that doesn't apply to them? Their whining is worse than some of the whiney-whiney types of liberals.

  • Meathead

    Phil stated biblical truth. Evil hates it when the truth exposes it.
    The entire family needs to call a news conference and state exactly what Phil stated. NOW, what are A&E executives going to do?
    Yep, A&E executives pooped on their own dinner plates by erroneously supporting 3-percent of their viewers and spitting in the face of the other 97-percent. Millions of us will no longer watch A+E Network shows and advertisers are aware of this. Income loss, A&E?

  • Well Read

    If Phil sat down with “gay families” he might have to look further than Louisiana because the Louisiana constitution says that marriage is a union between one man and one woman, and any gay families in Louisiana had to be married somewhere else.
    But when he does sit down with them, Christ will shine through Phil, and they will know very quickly that he loves them no matter who their brain tells them to have sex with.
    And he will tell them to be strong, and not give in to their urges.
    But if you think hanging out with gay people will somehow make him question, or set aside his faith, you've met very few people who are willing to submit their lives to Christ.

  • AdmiralJ

    Christians, get off your high horse thinking this is about “free speech”, its not. Phil has a right to say bigoted things. When that bigotry then starts to affect a “brand” he has a contract with, then that brand has a legal right to protect its investment. In other words, A & E has a right to protect its business model. From all parties, christians, gays, straights.
    Phil didn't just slam the gay lifestyle, he also attacked blacks. Saying he never saw any racial discrimination back in the 60's. Of course he didn't, because even as “white trash” (like Phil called himself) poor white folk always thought that blacks were beneath them in social standing. In other words, he just pulled a Paula Deen. And we all know what happened to her. Phil is just the latest example of white bigotry being punished for being a dumba$$.

    • Benof67

      How do you know what Phil has witnessed or not witnessed in his life? Have you ever heard Phil say anyone was beneath him? There is about to be a backlash in this country toward those of your ilk. You better start looking for a new closet to hide in.

        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!” Robertson continued, “Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

  • GLAAD is SAD

    so if every member of GLAAD that voices their believe in their gay lifestyle, and insults straights and Christians is ‘Bashing Straights', shouldn't we be throwing them off their shows. Because when voicing your opinion becomes bashing, then ‘girlfriend’ you just opened up a can of worms. Maybe we need to take a look at the shows we have on network TV and boycott every show with a gay man, woman or couple on it, and boycott their sponsors.
    If there are as many gays as the media would like us to believe, then a boycott would have no effect as the bonesmoker crowd would pick up the slack of Christians boycotting products. But the reality is that Straights far outnumber gays, and Christians far out number gays. If we put our minds to it, we can make a point to these arrogant homosexuals that they can't bully people into accepting their lifestyle.

    At the end of the day, we all get judged after we die. If there is a god and he hates gays, then you'll go to hell. If he is cool with it, then there'll be a place in heaven for you. Or there is no god, and well all end up dead, and you'll be a dead gay, and I'll be a dead straight, and no one will give a damn either way.

    So members of GLAAD – get the hell over yourselves – go do what you do and leave us out of it, because really we don't care to know what hole you love to love.

Personally I do not care what they do in their own homes, but I do not want to see it on tv or news! I believe like Mr. Phil its a sin, so I do not support it. Now that I know A&E are part of GLAAD, then I can block the channel, except for Duck Dynasty because its nice to have at least one good clean show on tv. Once and I do hope the family sticks behind Phil, they move to another network, or A&E cancels it then I'll 86 A&E. This event is just one more reasons I will not support the homosexual lifestyle who has just showed us they are a hate group as well!

He has a right to his beliefs. He even has the right to talk loudly about them if he wants. In fact, the problem isnt that he was censored in some way, but that the gay community raised a stink and A&E threw him under the bus to save their a$$es. They probably would have lost less viewers had they supported his right to his opinion. I dont even watch the show, I think its lame- but still. I have a few gay friends. I am neither a right winger or a homophobe, but it seems like the gay community sits around WAITING for some celebrity to say something stupid so they can overreact – its like overcorrecting for years of misunderstanding-

  • mumblinword

    This is one of the most trumped up fabrications of moral indignation I've seen yet.

    For decades scads and scads of heterosexuals have been humping it in our faces outside the sanction of the marriage covenant in the media, movies and reality TV, and now this hypocrite takes this moment to weigh in with his opinion on the impropriety of gay sex, specifically.

    And what about the rest of you right wing nuts? where has your public moral indignation been all these many years? The truth is you don't give a crap who is fornicating as long as they are not homosexual. Your double standard is ridiculous.

It kind of reminds me of the
    Muslim zealots that were brainwashed in their madrassas. These Christiams are EXACTLY the same, they just don't realize it. They spew fear and hate in the same way Hitler, southern slave masters, Salem witch accusers and the like did. They will always look to their book to justify their hate. It is futile trying to reason with these people. They are not capable of free thought or introspection.

  • Jerryb

    Jesus NEVER contradicted God in His perfect Heaven, so for those of you who say He did – WRONG. Jesus was a manifestation of God's power, and said shortly before he was killed that the FATHER AND SON ARE ONE.
    So, since God condemned homosexual ACTS, then Jesus stands with that, also. And Jesus added to the argument (such as it was) in the Book of Mark. “But from the beginning, God made them MALE and FEMALE” and He goes on to talk about MARRIAGE solely from a man-and-woman arrangement.
    All that means the LGBT-GLAAD-HIV nonsense is just that. NONSENSE.

  • QTitRight

    Matthew:
    He replied, Have you never read that He Who made them from the beginning made them male and female,

    5 And said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be united firmly (joined inseparably) to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?

    6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder (separate).

    So yes the People who get Divorced or eat YES shell fish.. Mudfish get forgiven for there Transgressions because “there special little elves”

    Jesus was Jewish so he believed in the “old testament” So don't think you other sinners are any more special then Gays.. I'm think what Robertson said was correct.. But a lot of you are passing on false information here on the Bible and what's a sin.

    Divorce is accepted now because we let the “book” change with times.. Same as what is happening with Homosexuals but remember it's not our place to be judging them.. Our place is only to speak the gospels..

    Romans 14:13
    Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

      Nothing that Phil said was unloving. And Christians who express their outrage over the bigotry and hatred of A/E are not lacking in love. They are acting like salt and light by exposing sin. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11, ESV)

    They can still correct themselves, and pull back the overreaction.

    Incidentally – Robertson made neither anti-gay nor racist remarks. He said that he considers homosexuality a sin and also that he doesn't see the appeal, that he never saw any racial violence as a boy, and that the Great Society's welfare programs have been very destructive to the black community.

    Ultimately this comes down to an individual right to freedom of speech and freedom of religious beliefs. A & E responded to certain employees complaining about the comments Mr. Robertson made. They decided to flog him publically for his beliefs and
    comments. This was a violation of Mr. Robertson's rights as a free individual. Careful folks that think he should not have the right to his views and freedom of speech. Next time, it might be YOU. If you don't like what he thinks, don't watch the show and boycott his products, that is your RIGHT.
    Whether you are pro or con his feelings and speech, we all need to support his free right to voice his opinion and to feel what he feels. We can all decide to allow his remarks to be painful to us or not, but we MUST as a free nation always err on the side of our personal freedoms, of which free speech and the freedom of religious beliefs WITHOUT THE FEAR OF PERSECUION are fundamental rights given to us in the constitution.

      You obviously have no idea how free speech works.
      You have the right to free speech, but you aren't free from the consequences of that free speech, aka losing a TV show.
      Sad to say, but hatred and bigotry won this battle, hands down.

    RAZ, I hate to say this, but you are one boring dude! No one cares about your religious manifest here. Your entitled to what you think and believe, but Phil is also entitled to his belief. So what's the damn point? You just sound very jealous of this man, and it doesn't look good for you! Please do not bore us anymore with all of this crap! Not all believe and think the way you do. But what we do believe (as Americans)….is that Phil had the RIGHT to say what he believed! You get it now, RIGHT? Men have fought in wars for us to continue to be able to have this FREE SPEECH! Please don't drown us anymore!

      First, there's no need to SCREAM my name.

      Second: FAIL. On so many levels.

      Third, let's talk about you comprehension: obviously, you didn't actually read my comment, which is apropos of reactionary “literalists” like you..

      Fourth: oh so cute. You don't actually understand what freedom of speech actually guarantees—namely: only the GOVERNMENT can violate Phil's “right” to “FREE SPEECH.” So the A&E network is the government? Please, alert Ted Cruz, post-haste.

      The government didn't intervene, you foul, entitled c*nt, so where then does your argument have root?

      not to put to fine a point on it susan have you had sex out of marriage, or eaten crawfish, like phil, or wear blended clothing…I am sure you are tired of hearing that old saw but it is just as true as the parts that talk about sodomy. My point is if this were another show and they said the N word in place of homosexual there would be a huge uproar. I believe he does have the right to his opinion, that is what makes America great, but for some reason it is ok for someone to be judgmental, rude, mean as long as you say “That is what my christian god believes.” and it makes it no more ok than racism, or sexism.

    The A&E network better HOLD ON TIGHT! to the “DUCK DYNASTY” Series because HBO can offer better money!

    I love those Christian rednecks and this is coming from a native American indian woman -im the genuine ariticle (I have a pedigree card and im from the reservation and everything!) and those Robertsons are priceless limited edition masterpieces just like me and every other born again Christian! its time for the gay community to realize that “it just aint logical” is right! Phil quoted what came directly out of the HOLY BIBLE on the newsreel I saw him on on fox news and cnn headline news and the “slant” that ignorant reporter put on it was well ignorant, she didn't even realize that phil was quoteing the HOLY BIBLE and THATS what IT has to say about homosexuality, that was not his own words it is the words of ALMIGHTY GOD quoted from the best selling book on the planet! so I encourage you reporters to read the HOLY BIBLE and don't be so ignorant then you wont be left behind and fired from your job when you try to “slant” Americas opinions on homosexuality because it just aint logical is right! Americans need to make sense again by realizing this is GODS country and it can only survive by His LAWS! other wise i see disaster for America on the horizon. how ignorant to kick GOD out of his own country and think it can survive without him. this is coming from a genuine NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN woman and this is my country that ALMIGHTY GOD brought everyone else to because they brought the HOLY BIBLE to it with them! Now pick up the HUMAN LAW BOOK FOR ETERNAL LIFE called the HOLY BIBLE and read it everyday and don't be so ignorant!

    I think everyone is overreacting here. Robertson had every right to say what he wanted, just like A&E had every right to suspend him. But really they should have simply put out a statement that his views do not reflect their own and maybe aired a PSA on tolerance or something.

    Free speech nor Christianity are under attack here. There are people who would get rid of religion if they had the chance there are just as many or more people who would make America a Theocracy if you'd let them. Although where I live I know a great deal of people who fall into the second category, so I admit my viewpoint might not be reflective of the whole of America.

    John 3: 16,21 -”For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe “is condemned already”, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

    Hebrews 4:12,13

    For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

    Jeremiah 23:29

    “Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

    John 12:48

    There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

    Romans 1; 29,32 ESV They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

    Proverbs 17:15 ESV He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV

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

    Don't forget Cracker Barrel. A&E and Cracker Barrel made an epic mistake for attacking Phil and the family and now they are both feeling the sting. The Phil supporters don't even have to say a lot in his defense we simply turn the channel and eat at restaurants not named Cracker Barrel. Money talks and the stocks from both of these companies has become really, really cheap lately. Hang in there Duck Commander the contract will be up soon enough. Keep Quacking!
