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."

    A&E really screwed themselves here.
    ie, we are done here without Phil.

    There is no such thing as bi-sexuality, that is a choice.

    A transgender person does not have to change sexes, that is a choice.

    Do you disagree?

    People are born desiring who they desire, who knows why, but the other two are choices.

    Intellectually. He's running around like a child spewing nonsense based on fear and hysteria, dressed in strange clothing and basically attention whoring everywhere he goes. He needs to grow up.

    I watch the show. It is funny, especially Uncle Si.

    We all have people like that in our family, well most of us, so we can relate.

    Speaking of hypocrisy. I notice that the same people defending Duck Guy, arguing that A&E should not have dropped his show for saying homos are like beast lovers, by some miracle of the ether also happen to be the exact same bunch who screamed for Martin Bashir's head when he suggested someone should **** down Palin's throat. The RW hypocrisy never seems to end, it seems.

    How do you know "most Christians don't repent"? But we do know that homosexuals won't, because they promote it and are actually proud of the sin.

    There are some legitimate reasons for divorce in the Bible, such as adultery. However, I miss seeing the adultery pride and divorce pride parades.

    now back to the original point. the 1964 civil rights act has clouded these issues. a contract has to also be legal.. you can't have a contract that says converting to Christianity violates the term of a contract.
    Um, actually...I think you could. Private contracts can have all kinds of clauses.

    But again, the Duck guy surely had a personal conduct clause that holds a person to not damage the program via personal action. It doesen't stop him from doing stupid things, it just say that his azz will be canned if he does damage the brand.

    Don't tell me you are against the free market?

    Yep, they are sticking together. Good for them.

    Their news sources peddle in outrage...not common sense or consistency.
