Duck Bites Back, Threatens Boycott
Something tells me this stunt is going to work out great in the end for the Robertson family.
Check it out:
In a statement released Thursday evening on their website, Duck Dynasty’s Robertson posted an official statement that said in part, “[W]e cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.” The patriarch is 67 year-old Phil Robertson who was suspended by A&E for expressing his Christian beliefs about sin during an interview with GQ Magazine.
The Robertson family added, “We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.”
In his comments, Robertson listed over a half-dozen sins including drunkenness, greed, idolatry, and adultery. That left and media, however, took exception to Robertson adding homosexual behavior to that list, and called for Robertson’s head. A&E immediately buckled and suspended Robertson indefinitely.
The public backlash against A&E has been intense and the uproar has divided the left. While GLAAD and many in the elite media scream “witch!”, the likes of the openly gay and left-wing Andrew Sullivan and lesbian feminist Camille Paglia have been critical of A&E and those calling for Robertson to be punished for expressing his religious beliefs.
