    A&E exercised its own first amendment rights.

He then went on to paraphrase a verse from Romans, but that verse doesn't mention bestiality, it was merely a list of sins common in Roman society that Paul was telling them they needed God's grace to be forgiven for. There is no way to look at his comment, especially if you have any knowledge of scripture at all (which Phil obviously does), and not read it as he was making that comparison.
    It reads like a list of what he thinks are sins, I don't see a comparison of one to the other...no matter how you slice it.

    And to top it off now, some Republican House Candidate down in Louisiana is now calling Phil Robertson "the Rosa Parks of our generation". I swear, you can't make this **** up.

    I mean come on, don't you remember how Christians have to sit in the back of the bus and use different water fountains? The South is full of non-Christian only bathrooms..

    A&E made millions before the Duck Dynasty family, and they'll continue to make millions after.

And what the duck did can impact the product
    and you think he contradicted the image of the show?
