Duck Dynasty Family Tells A&E to go Pound Sand - No more shows
The Robertson family just drew a line in the sand with A&E -- NO PHIL, NO SHOW ... and says they are already talking to the cable channel about possibly pulling the plug on "Duck Dynasty."
The family issued a statement saying, "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.'"
They also say they're "disappointed" that Phil Robertson was suspended by A&E just for expressing his religious beliefs ... which, they point out, is his "constitutionally protected right."
Fun fact: "Duck Dynasty" is the highest rated cable reality TV show ever.
Way to go A&E.
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.

Black Blade: Rumor has it they are already in talks with other suitors begging for "Duck Dynasty" to air on their networks. Even Glenn Beck has reportedly extended an offer for them to be on Blaze TV which would expand the profile of both companies. Apparently A&E stirred up a real shitstorm and is caught up in an internal battle with left-leaning gays in corporate management of the joint cable network venture of privately held Hearst Corp and Disney (DIS) with some angry Disney shareholders demanding their resignations. In coming days Disney could see some backlash as new boycotts of Disney advertisers are supposedly in the planning stages.
I have some homo Bros hang down at the local Red Neck smash your face in Friday night bar. I have to go there and have them join so they can state the homo side of this.
One other couple was going to have a gay wedding we were all looking forward to attending, but one homo ran off with a younger guy. So much for that.
Here is Latishiea. See if I can get him er her to join the sight.. Be nice she er he has feelings..
4th, that picture gives me a chubby every time I see it :headbang:
IMO Your out looking for a battle or sympathy. Your trying to make the thread about how your treated here . The thread has nothing to do with you . I looks like your trying to get a reaction out of people by somehow trying to show you have been mistreated . Whinnning that MR Robertson is getting support an your not is sort of off base IMO .Quote:
How did that post express a negative reaction? What did I post that wasn't true?
You have to join here to comment we all do . This is sort of like a club an if you dont fit in then to bad. You will get treated poorly sort of if you dont like it here leave type deal no one needs to stand up for your rights or your beliefs. If people dont like what you say as member of a group they will speak out even if your 100% correct on a subject . Here you have no constitutional rights if the administrators don't like what your saying they can ban you with no real reason an you cant do any thing about it. None of us here allowed to say any thing we want.
Now if the rest of the world feels Gunco has treated you unfairly an are boycotting the site then that would be a more direct comparison to whats going on .
The difference with Phils remarks is he is speaking his religious beliefs to the world an is a US citizen an private company is trying to silence him. Lots of people like what he has to say an he is getting mass support . A&E has the right to fire his ass just like any one of us could be banned here .
Again I m not looking for a battle or want to derail this thread to deal with yours or others issues .
Im going to guess some will loose there jobs. I think Disney needs to be boycotted until this happens .Quote:

Gay Days at Disney World 2013 - Orlando Gay Days 2013
"From its modest beginnings in 1991 as a informal, one-day celebration at Walt Disney World at which gay and lesbian participants donned red shirts and traveled around the park together, Gay Days at Disney World, also known as Orlando Gay Days has evolved into one of the world's foremost GLBT celebrations. It's also helped spawn an unrelated though similarly popular event in California each October"
