Twitter is popping with support for Phil Robertson

Twitter is popping tonight with people quite upset that Phil Robertson has been indefinitely suspended from Duck Dynasty. The A&E Network made the decision after news of Robertson's anti-gay remarks in a recent interview on GQ. Even former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin, has gotten in on the action with a Dec.18 tweet.

Free speech is endangered species; those "intolerants" hatin' & taking on Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing personal opinion take on us all

The non-scientific analysis of the Twitter feed points to an almost unanimous support for Phil Robertson's right to free speech and freedom of religion. There are even some notable gay media personalities who are tweeting their support of Phil Robertson's right to his opinion.

Tammy Bruce, a self-described lesbian radio talk show host, had some very poignant remarks:

@HeyTammyBruce

Anyone notice the irony of the Left demanding the destruction of someone in the name of tolerance?

Selective outrage: @GLAAD slams Phil Robertson after letting Alec Baldwin slide http://twitchy.com/2013/12/18/selective-outrage-glaad-slams-phil-robertson-after-letting-alec-baldwin-slide/#.UrJWnsbF1dM.twitter …

Conservatives *must* band together to stop the Gay Gestapos & their witch hunts, targeting those who think differently #DuckDynasty

There is a tremendous response from Christians on Twitter who make the point that Robertson was actually stating Scripture from Corinthians. Twitter has begun the hashtag #nophilnoshow and many are speculating the show will leave A &E Network altogether. It has been suggested that Glen Beck should pick up the show on his network.

This whole thing may have been done by Phil Robertson on purpose to “stake out” a position on the Bible. There have been rumors circulating that he was planning to leave “Duck Dynasty” after this season. You can read more about that here.

The big question is what will the rest of the Robertson clan do?
