In suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, A&E may have given evangelical Christians an opportunity to mobilize and stand up for their beliefs, David Brody said Friday on The Kelly File.
(Evangelicals) are very upset at A&E for pulling the plug, said Brody, whos the chief political correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network. You dont mess with Duck Dynasty and evangelical Christians.
Brody told Megyn Kelly that of the 85 million evangelicals currently in the United States, only a quarter of them vote, leaving the door open for liberal groups to take advantage at the polls.
This is a gay rights lobby thats a well-oiled machine, Brody said. They have the money and they have the passion. Are evangelicals going to match the passion? At this point, they havent, but Duck Dynasty might change that.(continued)

Hunker and pray.
evangelical Christians? How about just Christians in general? Wake up people! If it happened to them it could happen to all of us.
How do you mean? Evangelicals, along with Charismatics and similar congregations make up 30-40% of the population, IIRC.
Duck the vote!
Surprised at the 25% figure.
Same ol thing - Give them someone to vote *FOR* and you will see them in droves. Thinking they will vote *AGAINST* the homos is a waste of time.
Americas decline will not be reversed at the ballot box. We have subsidized moochers with IOU’s for generations now, they’re not suddenly going to “see the light”.
Does Chick-fil-A sell chicken?
Hopefully it’s the start of a revival.
Hopefully it will motivate constitutional lovers of all faiths. On that note and as Rush Limbaugh said the other day, A&E has every right to cancel programming. And in turn viewers have every right to boycott all a&e programming.
Yeah, I’m not sure about that 25% figure, looks low to me. I looked around and I am getting everything from 40%-50% who are eligible not voting, which means more than 25% voting. Of course the sources I found didn’t link to any sort of real polling either.
I seriously doubt that only 25% vote.
There is a seething, built-up anger out here in flyover country at the cultural elites who have been trashing and attacking all the long-held values, beliefs and traditions we hold dear. You can taste it in the air. These things are not just simple ideologies. They are our “identities.” Our souls. This is what is under attack.
It won’t take much more to set things off.
Well that's different: In a never-seen-before image posing with Duck Dynasty matriarch Kay Robertson, there is not a whisker between brothers (L-R) Willie, Alan, Jase and Jep.
If you want to support the Robinson's, they are Duck & Buck Commander.
If you want to punish A&E: Buy NO DD products (That would be Walmart). Boycott the advertisers that don't back the Robinson's and cancel your cable. If you cancel your cable, let the service provider know that the bundling of offensive networks in their cable packages is why.
I will get what I need over the web & conservative radio...
I sure hope so.
Gaydom will win out because of heterosexual backing for “sexual freedom” and “equality”.
Mobilizing starts on our knees, praying in the Holy Spirit, Fasting and clothed in humility that G_D would deliver those in sin away from their sin. Intervention for the weak who are lost in their sin.
12 But we request of you, brethren, that you [i]appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you [j]instruction, 13 and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another. 14 We urge you, brethren, admonish the [k]unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 16 Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic [l]utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every [m]form of evil.
So true. Very few will make the effort to simply vote against someone. Barack Obama in the White House for a second term is evidence of THAT.
