'Duck Dynasty's' Phil Robertson on Indefinite Hiatus Following Anti-Gay Remarks
hollywoodreporter.com ^ | 12-18-2013 | Lesley Goldberg

Posted on 12/18/2013 5:31:41 PM PST by servo1969

A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.

"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."

And so it has come to pass-

A man is no longer allowed to say he would rather have sex with a woman's vagina than a man's anus.

He did not say anything that would warrant this. I hope the family just stops doing the show.

I seriously doubt he could give a damn what anyone thinks.
Won’t surprise me if the rest quit the show in protest.

They MADE A SHOW around how these people are, and now they are going to fault him for being himself?

Take the show to another channel

“We have always been strong supporter and champions of the LGBT community.”
That’s a polite way of saying that the network is infested with homos.

Actually they could have a lot of fun with the Missing Phil — they are pretty clever and next season could be pretty funny — unless A&E controls all the scripts.

Robertson is taking a stand for the younger generation. Any thirteen year old knows that when an individual promotes
sexual perversion, it’s just one person. But when a society promotes sexual perversion, has it coming from every direction, it has a completely different, and ultimately fatal, impact.

Is A & E now a Fag Network?

If so, that will make it real easy to boycott that entire channel, 24/7/365.25.

I think they’ll [the TV network] have problem with this. Even people on Liberal sites agreed gay sex is icky!

And DD viewers [there are a lot of them], agree with Phil.

A & E is an effeminite network anyway.

Maybe some other network will pick them up... I would approach EWTN.

Here’s the lie, the depravity:

“Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,” GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz said. “He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors, who now need to re-examine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.”

No Wilson Cruz, Christians do not accept practicing homosexuals. Wilson Cruz You are the one out of step with reality. The majority of Americans DO NOT accept this depravity or believe your relationships are loving.

Could you post that examiner article here?

I couldn’t read it at the site, too many ads blocking the text. One leaves, and another pops up.

Not worth it.

If it’s not reported anywhere else, the examiner is just making it up. Sick sleazy website
