    So what Phil said in that interview referencing the buybull means nothing at all to me except that it was somewhat uncouth.
    As I have said before ... I think he is an asshole for many reasons.
    But mostly because he hurt your feelings openly stating that homosexuality is a sin.

    Yes, Phil can be a jerk, but a cast of nothing but agreeable nice people sitting around and sing campfire songs doesn't make for entertaining tv.

    Why do you believe they were planning on getting rid of Phil?
    Because he is a religious nutjob , a dry drunk with an agenda and a mean spirited asshole who likes controversy. He doesn't fit in with the light hearted nature of the rest of the show.
    The shows appeal will greatly broaden without him.
    The brothers and uncle Si are anything but overly-agreeable ... they just don't take the kidding of each other as seriously.
    I think I got a pretty accurate taste of what the show is about.

    I am not gay and nothing that asshole could say could possibly hurt my "feelings".

    Well then, you probably wouldn't want to watch a show featuring such a fellow. Leaving it to a whole lot of people that do want to watch the show.

    Interesting, I think there is hidden meaning here.

    I always have... and no doubt I will continue to do so.
    The controversy and debate got me curious so I checked it out and I then added my two cents.
    This isn't about free speech or religious freedom. It's about a network wanting to improve one of their popular shows by broadening it's appeal even more.

    Actually, no. GQ specifically asked what Phil thought about the homosexual marriage issue, never ask a southern man his opinion if you can't handle the truth, we don't hold back. The Dixie Chicks did in fact lose sales, that's why they started doing the "woah is me" stuff, they knew they ruined their ride.

    At the end of the day, people who dislike the Dixie Chicks for utilizing their freedom of speech quit supporting them. People who dislike Phil Robertson for utilizing his freedom of speech will stop supporting him.
    Actually, most people who watch the show have shown support for the Robertson family, here is the thing, people who watch those folks share their values and Robertson didn't really say anything that they won't tolerate. The Dixie Chicks had a country demographic, saying something against a conservative president on British soil during a war was the exact opposite of their demographic reach, people are shallow and sometimes it's just not a good idea to piss off your customers.

    The problem with the Dixie Chick example is that a LOT of their base audience, are the same type of hicktards that would LOVE Duck Dynasty. But, fortunately for the Dixie Chicks, their international market happen to agree with them and their sales went through the roof. Now, the hicktards may WANT to support Phil Robertson but if A&E takes them off the air, they have no international market to fall back on. All that's left is to keep making duck calls.
    Their international sales didn't come close to what they lost in the states, they lost arena tours, airplay, album and merchandise sales. You lose the U.S. you lose the ability to tour big internationally. I thought they sucked to begin with though so I wasn't exactly crying over what happened to them.

    Bottom line is, they are all so filthy rich, none of this will keep them from missing any meals.
    Truth.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Duck Dynasty

    Here's a question for ya: He has been reinstated as of today. All this took place over the Christmas holiday time. Was he really suspended (read: punished)? Or, was filming shut down for the holiday time anyway, and nothing of substance happened other than showboating on A&E's part?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
