When word came that Phil Robertson had been "indefinitely" suspended by A&E, he was praying for a fellow church member afflicted with cancer, according to his church leader.

Robertson's pastor Mike Kellett said, "There were greater things on our mind than the firestorm about this [GQ magazine] article."

Speaking to CNN, Kellett said Robertson isn't worried about being suspended over what he said because he believes he told the truth: "He's very calm, and very confident that if he serves the Lord, God will take care of everything."

Phil’s empire is suppossedly worth 400 million plus.Doing the show was probably more for fun that money.A&E is going to be the loser in this mess,plus the pink mafia look like a bunch of bullies right now.

Phil and Obamacare are on opposite sides of the coin when it comes to cancer patients. And it just so happens to be the Christmas season. Naw, move along, nothing to see.

The Phil Robertson issue is important.

It seems to be, somehow, the front line in the culture war (make no mistake, there is a culture war, and conservatives need to fight).

I get the feeling, however, that the Obama regime is high-fiving each other over the re-direction in the nations attention away from the Obamacare train-wreck.

We need to be able to fight a two-front war.

Just redoubles my anger at Cracker Barrel, where I went today to see for myself and complain.

They have taken this good man's merchandise off the shelves because 'it may be offensive to someone'.....

Dear mercy, if we let them get away with this.....we're done for.

Phil is right.

or course. The question is, will the auditor report any unusual polyps while he is in there?

The IRS loves the anus..

Phil’s the man, but I’m hoping he finds that God would prefer him to move to a different network. Smiting A&E and Cracka Barrel seems appropriate.

Who gives a flip what the liberal media thinks or does. God is the SOURCE for everything Phil needs and not ‘the world’. I laugh at their attempt to ‘punish’ him.

I’m behind him 100% and they all should walk out or take a verbal stand behind Phil. Let the media suffer - they have ‘nothing’ to replace it with. If they suspended their ‘filth’ programs and/or advertisements - there would be very little TV - just sports and news.

One thing about it. In Tennessee Cracker Barrel has another family restaurant competitor called Shoneys which is where my family will be going from now on. Cracker Barrel's mistake in the name of political Correctness will be posted on outddor recreation and hunting and fishing message boards. Will Cracker Barrel suffer from loss of revenue? You Betcha.

The local Cracker Barrel in my area {Lake City, Tennessee} is at the head of a very popular ATV & Four wheeler recreational trail and hunting area.

Well, that’s reason for suspension right there.

“While admitting that they have received an unprecedented backlash over their role in Robertson being suspended, GLADD are by no means finished. They are now calling for Robertson to be re-educated on gay issues by making him meet with homosexual families in some kind of bizarre Alcoholics Anonymous-style treatment.

“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” GLAAD’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro told The Wrap.”

GLAAD should be forced to sit down with religious, straight families.

The Bible says what the Bible says. Any setting down won’t change the words in the Bible. They need to stop bullying people. They’re intolerance is beginning to annoy me.

They tell Bob Newhart how to practice his Catholic faith and now are trying to tell Phil to sit down with them. He’d rather be hunting, I’m sure. They don’t SHARE any values.

These GLAAD people make me sick. Who do they think they are trying to tell people how to live their lives and what to do?

Obama highly endorses Bible-thumpin', gun-clinging nutcases to pray for cancer patients - it saves the government money.

Gotta admire a man who has his priorities straight. Somehow you just know the Robertson family's going to come out the other side of this much better than they went into it.
