A&E had no right to suspend Phil.
A&E has a right to suspend Phil but I don't agree with it.
A&E has a right to suspend Phil and I agree with it.
It's a question of "freedom of speech" and very important.
Phil's beard is too weird, which makes him a slave to fame.
This whole thing seems like a tempest in a teapot to me.
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
He has every right to say whatever he wants but that doesn't mean there are no consequences to saying it. Freedom of speech does not include freedom from consequences. He was an idiot, but let's be honest, this is all just a publicity scam to get more people to watch Duck Dynasty. The suspension won't last.
I'm just shocked at the supposed "shock and awe" of the media towards his comments. What on earth did you expect him to say about Gays/Gay Marriage? To me, it's clearly a slow day in the newsroom and so they need someone to crucify. He can say whatever he wants and A&E has the right to suspend him for exercising that right. I'm just happy the guy has owned up to what he's said and hasn't chickened out -- people like that are a good thing far as having an actual opinion goes. But, common sense has no place in this little crusade by a certain slew of liberals. From what I can tell, that fella ain't budging. It all falls on A&E now, who somehow had no idea what they signed up for in starting this show.
