So Phil Robertson of DD is asked a question about homosexuals. He answers it honestly and now he is thrown off the show. Way to go A&E..
That shows moral values are so much better then the other reality trash on those channels its unreal....

A&E has been slowly writing Phil out of the show per his request. I think it will fly fine without him. I agree, the media obviously will attempt to slaughter him. I don't think it will work. Honestly, I doubt he cares. People who are humble and God fearing have a way of trusting in themselves because they believe God is guiding them. I doubt Mr. Robertson will lose any sleep over it.

Phil is 67. He is worth 15 million dollars. I don't think he is going to compromise his views. I'm sure he would rather spend more time hunting then doing the show anyway. I'm sure I'd rather be hunting.

There are different forms on the Hunting site, and this is General Hunting Forum.

OK, what was the homosexual question? Want to talk about it on this forum, then lets get the facts.

Supposedly the question was something in regards to what do you think of homesexuals. To which he reportedly referred to them as drunken terrorist. I like Phil. But that's strange if true. I highly doubt a bunch of homo's are plotting against are country. If they were it would be the most fabulous plan ever. I heard this on radio this morning.
Adding this. Guys at work saying he simply quoted bible according to what they read online.

Quote:
When the reporter asked Robertson what he found sinful, he said “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

The self-proclaimed Bible-thumper then went on to paraphrase Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Phil can say whatever he wants and A&E can respond in any way they want. Still a free country. (for now)

I think that sum's it up.

I also agree with the others who said both A&E and Phil had the right to do what they did. One could think that A&E was wrong to dismiss him, as he should be allowed to have his own belief's, we also need to remember the business he is in (pertaining to the show), and A&E, like it or not, has to protect their image, and cash flow from the show.
At the end of the day, it is still about making money as far as A&E goes, and I am sure they did what they (and their legal team) felt was necessary to protect their interest.
I believe that Phil stated his personal belief's, and due to the backlash, A&E was forced to make a business decision.

They certainly can make their own business decisions as well as the Robertson's. I'm not sure but I think at the beginning of every show Willie says something to the effect that family comes first (may be confusing with Pawn Stars but the point is the same). I hope the whole family tells A&E, no Phil, no show on A&E and moves to another network.

Now to the business of A&E. DD is their money bag, the highest rated show on their network. Now if they want to alienate the audience that supports the show and pays their bill, they can do that. For what purpose though? To gain an audience share that doesn't watch the show anyway. Bad business decision. Phil didn't say this on the show, he said to a liberal interviewer. Phil wasn't intimidated by the question, he merely stated the truth as he sees it. A non issue as far a the network should be concerned with, another bad business decision, IMHO.

A&E merely demonstrated that they can be bullied by the politically correct (liberal thought police) crowd. Another bad business decision as what will be the next issue they are willing to be bullied about. I don't really think the execs at A&E really care if they lose the show. I think they are stunned and don't understand why it is the success that it is. I think they will be "glaad" to see it gone from their two bit network and see themselves slide back into irrelevancy.

Phil simply quoted the Bible and stated his beliefs. If he were a homosexual getting fired by A&E for speaking his beliefs A&E would have a discrimination laws suit on there hands and most likely be investigated by the government. I'm tired of the double standard and hate towards Christians.

Ah, I do believe you are correct. Maybe a better way to say it would have been, they just don't have the guts, backbone, or brains to make a good business decision.

If given that the company is run on feelings, I don't think I would be investing in their future.

SO when did it become so important to know what everyone thinks about everything??? I mean I watched alot of Cheers back in the day and I had no idea what the actor that played Norm thought about gun control, gay rights, politics...nor would it of swayed my values had I did.

It is the trend in the country that you must be on this side or that side...that is why we get nowhere anymore and 1/2 the country follows this nitwit, while the others must follow the other nitwit.

Independent thinking is dying...no one HAS TIME FOR IT, THEY ARE YOO BUSY..tell me what I should think Katie Couric....

It is funny A&E was running commercials for MSNBC during Duck Dynasty recently , I remember cause I laughed and said "someone sure in the heck does not know this demographic...." guess they got their way after all.

Hope they move.

agreed. I just htink a lot of times when a company (or person for that matter) doesn't make a decision that we agree with, we feel they are swayed by the liberals or tea party or PETA or whatever organization we may not agree with.

He's worth $15MM. My guess is A&E is somewhat important to him.

That's a lot of duck calls!!

The duck calls are only a part of it, i.e. Duck commander, Buck commander, merchandising, speaking engagements, appearances, etc. he gets a pretty penny for all of it. Not sure what the A&E deal paid, but he'd be quit comfortable if he were to loose the gig anyhow....

If you follow the family closely, you will see that the whole clan knew the DD show was fleeting, they said so themselves. They will not renew any new contracts with A&E, some other network my pick them up, if they choose, but I'm sure they are done with A&E, and maybe any future shows completely.

He was a multimillionaire before DD. He'll be fine. He was doing speaking/hunting seminars since the late 80's. He'll be doing them long after DD films its last episode for A&E.

I tend to agree with CDB. Phil is no naive hayseed. He knew exactly what he was saying and exactly the response it would get. These culture fads are short lived and there is no doubt that DD is at its peak with popularity, merchandising, etc. I mean there is nowhere but down from here. I think Phil knows this and we know he was at odds with the producers before about the omission of Jesus references and the fabricated bleeps. I think he purposely decided that this was the best opportunity to make his statements of belief to get the most national attention and that those statements would indeed "burn it down". He doesnt need the money, isnt interested in fame, and doesnt need A&E. I wouldnt be surprised if this is the last season and DD is no more. I also wouldnt be surprised to see a new show where the Robertsons have more content control. Maybe they show up on one of the outdoor oriented channels.

While you guys buy into the liberal media China has a rover on the moon. this is nothing more that the media putting a blindfold in front of your face to make you shed away from the huge news that that means. The Chinese are decking us in every category you can think of right now, and they want you to forget about that.

Statement issued today by the family more or less says they are done. Kudos to them for sticking to their guns and their faith. A&E are the losers here. They will feel this in their wallet and it will sting. Number one cable show of all time. Hope the Robertson clan sticks around tv in some capacity. Hard to find good clean entertainment anymore. I will miss the show of. God bless them and best wishes in the future.

The magazine knew exactly what they were doing just like rolling stone did with the terrorist! I guess their magazine is in the gutter too. A&E will lose here and they will be snatched up by someone else very quickly. IMO

That's a lot of duck calls!!


The duck calls are only a part of it, i.e. Duck commander, Buck commander, merchandising, speaking engagements, appearances, etc. he gets a pretty penny for all of it. Not sure what the A&E deal paid, but he'd be quit comfortable if he were to loose the gig anyhow....


Where do you think the popularity for his speaking engagements, appearances and mdse came from?


He was a multimillionaire before DD. He'll be fine. He was doing speaking/hunting seminars since the late 80's. He'll be doing them long after DD films its last episode for A&E.


You think his appearance fees were the same before DD? Duck call seminars are a far cry from $50,000 appearance fees.

Late Thursday, the Robertson family did issue an official statement on their website:


"We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart' and 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right. 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."

I cant stand watching hunting shows on the major networks. The issue i have is letting the networks portray them as out of control idiots. Showing no respect for the animals and the hunting culture we all know and try hard to display to the public.

I went and read the article this all came about from. So Phil is driving around with a loaded gun in case he sees a deer, knowing he has a passenger who has never hunted and will be reporting everthing in a national paper. What a chance to show someone that hunters respect guns...and animals.

I wish they would represent hunters like the do christ.

Classy response. To classy for A&E...

And here we just got rid of the old bulky TVs in the house for flatscreens, anyone want some fairly new flatscreens??

I truly believe this show was created so that urban "sophisticated" folks could laugh or poke fun at this band of backwoods duck hunters gone millionaires, and play up how simple and even undeserving they are. I think even the producers of this show likely wanted to set the stage of how backwards rednecks are with their love of guns, eating critters and reading bibles to further degrade the rural way of life...Trouble is the country loved the show but not for that reason, the plan missed, backfired even and rural life was becoming COOL again...God forbid, we need something that can stop it!! Here is their out...

Luckily I don't live in or for TV, I live in the country. I think I am buying book shelves to replace the flatscreens...maybe A&E can do a show about pet photography?? Should be a hit for them.

Liberal thinking ruins everything, anyone that doubts it is already gone. No sympathy if you take some slack for your thinking, and no apology needed from you to me, if I take some for mine.

No respect for the criticizer = No care about it from the criticized. I know it kills a liberal to hear you say you ain't bothered when you are blasted for not comforming to the new Amercia..but if we get too worried about cracking eggshells, no one makes an omlette..I think this country is starving for a good a omlette. DD's popularity proved it, people did not show up to laugh at them but to laugh with them, so now it will be gone.

Exactly RB.

A&E picked the "right" family, the family now needs to pick the "right" producers. What a chance to show the new america what it means to be an outdoor family/hunter. I hope Phil and the rest of DD find a group that can pull it off.

in bussiness, if somethings more trouble than it's worth, or you simply don't need it, you stop doing it. i wouldn't be surprised if the robertsons feel that way about this show.

btw, iv'e seen the show a few times, bits & peices. i didn't see what all the fuss was about, i found it kinda' boring.

No,I,m sad to say it didn,t come from Cliff.We got it used a long time ago.We bought a RCA at Sears Outlet in Bridgeville some years ago and I had to junk it several years ago.The Zeniths are great T.V.,s.Curtis Mathis T.V.,s suppose to last forever and that is supposedly what has done them in.My dad used to buy Philco,s and Quasars cause his friend sold and serviced them.What ever happened to Zenith and did you buy yours from Cliff?

Yes, we always bought from Cliff. I still have one that my late farther bought years ago. That was a good old family small business. My pap bought a Zenith from a different seller and Phil would not even look at it when it needed a module. That was back when you could be quite independent in your business decisions. I remember they always had a couple of well trained dobermans hanging around.

The last thing I care about are the homophobic rants of some rube on a scripted "reality" show.

For me it's not about whether one agrees with the content of what Phil said, but rather his(or yours) right to believe what you want and his/yours right to say what it is.
I have a issue with the groups from gay/lesbian to ACLU telling people they are not allowed to say what they believe, yet it is ok for them to do it.
