    Anyone looking at the "Duck Dynasty" uproar may wonder why A&E didn't warn Phil Robertson about the dangers of talking too much to reporters.

    But it now looks like they did.

    Robertson, the long-bearded patriarch of the clan of Louisiana duck-call merchants, is on "hiatus" from filming episodes of the No. 1-rated cable reality show after giving a GQ magazine interview where he made anti-gay remarks and questioned the need for the civil-rights movement. GLAAD and theNAACP, among others, condemned the comments. But thousands of fans - and even Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal - have rushed to his defense, touching off the latest skirmish in the national culture war. Late Thursday, the family said it might not want to continue the show without Phil.

    The scandal has turned into the kind of tempest network executives feared all along. A&E knew of Robertson's controversial views - expounded in videotaped sermons and elsewhere - before the show premiered in spring 2012, and warned him not to overshare on hot-button topics such as gay rights and race relations, according to a producer familiar with the situation. Phil and other family members also probably signed contracts containing "morals clauses" in which they promised to, among other things, avoid anything that would embarrass or bring shame to A&E or the brand. Such clauses are standard in the entertainment and sports industries.

    The issue that will need to be addressed by those on the offensive against religion, is the demand one group be allowed to say, act, and believe the way they do, while being allowed to excoriate, demean, and attempt economic harm against another for the doing the same thing.

    I think the issue could have been avoided if the interviewer hadn't set him up. He HAD to know how Robertsin was going to answer the question and if he did, he shouldn't have asked the question.

    The Libbos might want to temper their outrage. The Duck Dynasty vote has already gotten one United States congressman elected. It would suck for the Libbos if every single member of theDuck block voted against a Democrat, because of the way the Libbos treated Phil Robertson.

    Making a big deal out of this is a bad business decision for A&E and a bad political move for the Libbos.
    No, I am saying that most Christians manage to say that because they believe the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, they believe Homosexuality is a sin, yet they don't then go on to compare it to beastality.

    Similarly, older southerners usually can manage to talk about their experiences in the pre-civil rights south, without then implying that blacks under Jim Crow were perfectly happy.

    This might be a an abstract concept for you, but in modern society, most people try to be honest about their beliefs in such a way that they do not offend others by making offensive comparisons. One would never know that if all they did was listen to talk radio, but just the same, thats how most people try to conduct themselves. Most Christians believe homosexuality is a sin, very few are so offensive as to then compare it to raping an animal. Many white men grew up poor in the south and worked the fields along side blacks. My grandfather was one of them. He grew up in a home without even a floor in it. When him and his brothers were kids they would walk from El Dorado, AR all the way to Memphis every year following the cotton harvest. He would talk about working alongside blacks in the fields without then going into how he thought they were happier under Jim Crow than they are today.

    Once again, no one is offended by Phil saying that he believes homosexuality is a sin. They are offended by him then going on to basically compare 2 lesbian chicks living together to a sicko raping a dog.

    A&E owns the show.
