No Phil, means no 'Duck Dynasty'

See also

Phil Robertson comes under attack from comments given on a GQ interview. A&E quickly responds by placing Phil on indefinite hiatus. His family issues a statement that they may end any future filming of “Duck Dynasty” if Phil is suspended. A&E stands to lose the top rated reality show for suspending Phil.

On the “Duck Dynasty” website, a statement was issued giving their stand on the matter. They tell fans that they are prayerfully seeking which direction they should go in the matter. They are a family deeply rooted in their faith in God and His word in the Bible.

“We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.”

There are some people and organizations like GLAAD, The Human Rights Campaign and PETA who condemn Phil. Former "American Idol" contestant, Clay Aiken, believes Phil’s words are out of fear.

Others, like Bobby Jindal, who is the Governor of Louisiana and Sarah Palin defend him. Governor Jindal said, “It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended."

What started out as a simple question and was answered honestly by an individual who loves God and the Bible, has once again torn a nation apart. It seems that our freedom of speech and religious views are being taken away at an alarming speed.
