Backlash over A&E’s Ouster of the Duck Commander Grows

The fallout from A&E’s decision to suspend Phil Robertson from the hit reality TV show Duck Dynasty continues to be the dominate story on the Internet. As we reported yesterday, Robertson’s interview with GQ magazine and the subsequent outcry led to his ousting.

The backlash has been growing. Within minutes of A&E’s announcement, websites, Facebook pages, and petitions sprang up in support of the beleaguered star, including the “We Stand with Phil” page that has attracted 1.2 million likes as of this writing. Governor and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is encouraging people to “Stand with Phil and Support Free Speech,” According to Huckabee.

Coming from a different angle, Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile, writing at The Gospel Coalition blog, finds extreme irony in a culture that celebrates crude song lyrics and movie depictions of sexuality, but castigates “vulgar” rejections of them. ...

we are in the midst of a commnst rev. too close to see it. the 2nd amend slows the process down, has to be done more gradually, but have watched this over a lifetime, including and especially including the last 3 leaders.

in the meantime, I celebrate the first advent of Jesus Christ, Messiah of the world.

Christopher and others, just wanted to wish you and yours a Merry Christ (mas).

I stand by my statement

"While the backlash is justified, I am saddened that the 'outraged' Christian leaders Ive heard are yet to clarify the Gospel after Robertsons 'vulgar' admonishment of homosexual acts. The GOSPEL isnt vulgar condemnation, the GOSPEL is reconcilation for those that repent of such wickedness"

However, if your response wasnt induced by too much eggnog, please clarify what you meant beyond 'stupidity.' I will do my best to answer your concern

For me, I feel like I am speaking out against the hatred and cover up of the truth. I'm speaking out against the sodomites winning, once again, simply because a man shared his biblical view and spoke fact, Cambellite (whatever that is) or not. What he said is no less true and what has happened is no less wrong.

Frank D...good.for you. All I've done is sign the petition. I have a problem with the 1.7% though, official stat or not. I think there is an enormous underground homosexual and Bi network of those who choose to keep things quiet.

Chris, whether or not the producers don't hold the particular view, a simple disclaimer would have sufficed. Amazing how these people have gained such a voice, but for the life of me, I don't understand how it is they have people running so scared. Maybe because of the numbers of sodomite supporters who back them. A&E must have sodomites within their hierarchy.

Amen.
I guess being a Campbellite is ok now in "Christian circles" ?
Why don't we stand hand and hand with the Mormons and JWs while your at it!?
The Robertson's believe a different Gospel. Ok.. So they have a form, of Godliness , but they deny the truth. I'm tired of " Christians " calling the Robertson's Christians.. They belong to a cult. Just like Mormons and JWs.[/QUOTE]

Odd how so much hubbub is stirred up over some old fart in Louisiana. Where was all the noise when they took prayer out of schools? I think I smell the "h" word floating around somewhere in the vicinity.
As for this whole situation, I actually agree with both sides. The duck guy spoke truth. Good for him. That's more than most people will do. The show producers don't want that to be perceived as their particular belief. Good for them. Now we know where they stand, and who needs more prayer.
As for supporting these folks....first of all, they are richer than anyone here. They dont need your money. But if you still feel like spending, at least have enough sense to buy Duck Commander, not Duck Dynasty. Duck Dynasty is a show, and the money you spend on it goes to the producers. The money you spend on Duck Commander goes to the ones you mean to support.

I would think that if this wakes Christians out of their apathy and gets them to the polls to vote maybe then things would turn around and right will be done. If so then all this that's happened to the beloved Duck Dynasty will be worked out for good,theirs and ours as Chrisians!

So, what are Christians and other decent people going to do about this? Hopefully, much! I have already sent encouraging emails to Duck Dynasty and the sponsors (Under Armour, etc.) who support the program. I've also sent emails to those who are removing Duck Dynasty merchandise (Cracker Barrel, etc.) and letting them know they've lost my business. I am planning to do all I can to stand against those who support something as ungodly and anti-family as sodomy. It's time to get off the defense and get on the offense!!

Concerning the homosexuals, they only number about 1.7% of our population. It is only through the liberal news media and corrupt politicians that they have any power. This can be stopped! The vast majority of our society is AGAINST such things as homosexual marriage.

What's really disturbing about this whole situation is that Phil Robertson said what preachers should have been saying from their pulpits all along - homosexuality is SIN! However, most pastors are now more concerned about being popular than proclaiming the truth of God's holy Word, the Bible.

I remain in prayer for a mighty revival in America.

When you're a Christian you have freedom of speech, until you offend someone . But if your not a Christian you can say what you want and get laws changed .
