Under Armour stands by Duck Dynasty
Twitchy (via TMZ) ^ | 12/19/13 | TMZ

Posted on 12/20/2013 3:09:35 AM PST by nonliberal

Under Armour, the biggest sponsor of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” has issued a statement to TMZ pledging support for the television show. “We have no plans to change our current relationship,” the statement reads. “We are obviously aware of the situation. And his comments are not indicative of Under Armour’s views.”

So, Under Armour doesn’t share the views of “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson, but they’ll continue to sponsor the show nonetheless. Fair enough.

I didn't find this on a quick search. If people are going to boycott A&E, they should support companies that stand with the Robertsons.

I suspect they share his views, but don’t want to say so. Who wants the lavender mafia targeting you if you can avoid it.

Only Phil has been banned from filming. If the rest continue filming WITHOUT Phil I’ll be very disappointed. In fact, if the rest of the family cave to A&E and go on with the show as if nothing happened, I don’t need to watch THEM any more! Will it be FAMILY LOYALTY or the Almighty Dollar?

I am guessing you missed the memo;

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

I find it more than a little hilarious all these firms stating they don’t agree with the views of Phil Robertson while the majority of the people who buy their products agree with the Robertsons. I doubt you could even find few male Dems, outside of the Pajama Boy types, who think homosexuality is normal.

So, we have one of our most popular shows in America being brought down by these ridiculous butt thumpers ... who in a right and sane world should be reduced to utter shame over their behavior and the manner in which they pursue this sinful lifestyle and attempt to foister it on others who want nothing to do with it.

I think it’s past time that able bodied American men, especially, started standing up to this nonsense. It’s past time to get in their face and make THEM back down, isn’t it?

Why do we continue to allow ourselves to get pushed around?Why do we take this?

I understand your sediments but I hope they continue. The show is bigger than this. I find it pretty funny. It would be sad to see the show gone. Phil really wasn't on that much. It mainly focused on the sons.

I don’t take it. My neighbors know my opinion on Homosexuality. They need to keep it in their bedrooms and not in my face. Same sex marriage is Bullsh*t.

Nice move by Under Armour.

Just hope the liberal universities that Under Armour sponsors with uniforms and equipment...do not boycott UA. Hawaii, South FLA, Texas Tech, some of the schools they equip

A good way to go after AnE is to watch Duck Dynasty...and turn the channel once show is over

This will cost Landrieu her senate seat. No way she can “duck” this issue.

LOL-——n-i-c-e insight.

They’re running the video of her in the well of the Senate talking the Big Lie......promising voters they can keep their plan, if they like it.

Good — I just bought a nice UA t-shirt for my nephew for Christmas. I think I’ll go back and get the nice hoodie sweatshirt too.

they’re trying to have it both ways. They recognize the value of advertising to the target audience but they don’t want to run afoul of the homos.. UA will learn soon enough that those people don’t like it if you don’t support them and only them.

Thanks for the reply. I saw the father and son owners of SKYJACKER(?) Suspension Systems on FNC this morning stating that they share Phil Robertson’s faith in God; and that while his choice of words may have been a bit harsh, what he said was true, and they support the Robertsons.

NEWS FLASH: At the Great White Throne Judgement, God’s handling of those who spurned His offer of free Eternal Salvation, and who chose rather to follow a perverted aberrant lifestyle, will make what Phil said in GQ seem like a balmy breeze wafting past them!

This morning reading “Our Daily Bread” as part of my Devotions I read something that I thought applied to the suits at A&E and to the perverts they sided with when they attacked Phil Robertson.
Proverbs 18:5 “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”

Well, your “sediments” are just that, sediments. My sentiments are that without Phil there is no show. And I have no doubt the family will stick together on this.
