    Censorship is also punishing someone for what was said. And, if there were such clauses in his contract, oh well for Phil.
    I can pretty much guarantee that Phil Robertson didnt sign a contract that muzzled his religious beliefs.

    Nope, he said he prays for them.

    The reason is because A&E had no problem with what he said until GLAAD told them they did.

    That makes A&Es position very weak.
    You overlook the obvious: that A&E wanted all of this free publicity. They satisfy the GLBT folks with a quick response, accept the sincere apology (or explanation) of Phil and make many, many millions more. At worst, the DD show ends/moves but A&E makes more money on the reruns and transfers the show to another network. The timing of the interview release left A&E with 9 out of 10 episodes of this season's DD already filmed.

    There are a lot of duck hunters in the USA, I lived in the Mississippi River Delta for a number of years but I never got into duck hunting, I did do a lot of fishing and caught a lot of fish.

    I never watched the Duck Dynasty program (I watch very little TV.).

    It will be interesting to see if Duck Dynasty survives the current kerfuffle and stays on TV.

    Personally, I think it more likely than ever that it will survive...just maybe not on A&E.

    Freedom of speech isn't freedom from consequences.
    Really Bashir had the right to say what he said about Sarah Palin?

    If one of us says that to another poster we would be suspended.

    Bashir suffered no consequences for weeks before he quit.

    It seems to me ever since this crazy PC talk started, it has been more about muzzling folks. What one says seems to warrant more punishment than any action one does. This is crazy.
    You see but that doesn't make any money for GLAAD which is what this is about.

    Now they will have more people giving them money so they can stop other horrible people from speaking out about gays.

    Now the NAACP is getting into the act about what Phil said about blacks for the same reason.

    you, on the other hand, stand with westboro baptist church in support of phil robertson's intolerance of those from the gay community. your refusal to accept equal rights for all is duly noted
    Can you define intolerance for me as it pertains to Phil Robertson?
