Phil Robertson's Entire Family Stands by Him, Implies Duck Dynasty Can't Continue Unless He Returns

Is this the end of Duck Dynasty?

While the fifth season, much or all of which has presumably been shot, is set to premiere Jan. 15 on A&E, the entire Robertson family has come together in support of patriarch Phil Robertson, who was suspended by the network in light of anti-gay comments he made in a recent interview with GQ.

"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," read a statement posted on the Duck Commander website .

"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," the family continued. "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."

Idiots. You have the

Idiots. You have the constitutional right for the government not to throw you in jail for expressing your religious beliefs. A private company can fire you for expressing your opinions.

How are they idiots?

No one is suggesting the government step in and force a&e to rehire him. In fact everyone is suggesting that if a&e fire him they will fire a&e. its the free market at work. Lets face it tv is about advertisement and character recognition for these guys to fire somebody they hired for the sole purpose of being recognized blowing up in their face is obvious.

many mistakes in this video

Hindus alone have 33 million gods according to the huffington post. For him to suggest that there are only 10,000 gods is showing that he got all his theological training from atheist sites.

God created the earth in 6 days not 7 again this is really simple stuff he is missing.

Then he uses his moral judgement to condemn God. Understand this when adam ate of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil he condemned us all to death sooner or later. There are many things where God commanded government, not individuals, to carry out his judgement.

The old testament was about the law, it shows we can not live up to that law and government not only can not live up to the law it is often the very thing used to break God's will in everyone's everyday life.

In the new testiment instead of a man paying the price for his sin's Jesus paid the price on the cross. its not that man does not deserve death its that Jesus paid the price. and its a christians job to point people to Jesus so that they know he can take care of their sins.

He brought up many different examples of people who God said had to pay for their sin with their life and I will not be answering them all cause that would take way too long. But the fact of the matter is that in the old testament God destroyed a city over the sin of homosexuality. God hates it. Furthermore victims of pedophilia are 7 times more likely to be gay than someone who is not, and victims are also much more likely to sexually assault another child according to http://www.jimhopper.com/male-ab/ scroll down to (Holmes, W. C. & Slap, G. B. (1998). Sexual abuse of boys: Definition, prevalence, correlates, sequelae, and management. JAMA, Dec 2, 280(21), 1855-1162) download the pdf and read the study. not saying every gay person is a pedophile but the ones who are have many many victims. Might be a reason why God was so hard on it in the old testament.

"Hindus alone have 33 million

"Hindus alone have 33 million gods according to the huffington post. For him to suggest that there are only 10,000 gods is showing that he got all his theological training from atheist sites."

It doesn't matter if there are a trillion of nothing (gods), he probably figured he wasted enough time on the irrational.

"God created the earth in 6 days not 7 again this is really simple stuff he is missing."

Do you really believe that? What about the rest of the universe?

"God destroyed a city over the sin of homosexuality. God hates it."

God created homosexuality and then to cover up his mistake he destroyed a city. How is it a perfect entity could make such flawed creatures and not take responsibility for it?

You're not two years old anymore, quit believing in nonsense.

your video says "tell me where I am wrong"

I do and you throw a little fit. Your not 2 stop throwing temper tantrums.

Gave you a link to a peer reviewed journal showing that homosexuality isnt something God made, never mind you probably still think the Bible says God made the earth in 7 days. facepalm.

on a side note are you one of those people who believe that people can not control their sexuality? The feminist for years have been saying that men have uncontrollable sexual urges. do you agree or disagree with that? If men can control their sexual urges, unlike what the feminist and hollywood suggest then when God says no fornication, adultery, rape, homosexuality, he is a just God. But if those urges are uncontrollable then I guess God is unjust. so are these urges uncontrollable?
Does man have self control?

Duck Dynasty bigots have revealed the

deep bigotry that has infested the Liberty Movement. Just sit back and watch the threads appear and marvel at the comments. Are these really individuals that want liberty for all? I think not. We have a cancer in the liberty movement and it is now on display.

Absolutley

To many Gay's and hipster's like you trying to push there own agenda's. While thinking it's OK to destroy traditions because it makes everyone feel better.

This is exactly like the Chick Fil-A scenario where all the gays lost there mind because Chick Fil-A took a position that was tradition just like PHIL.

What happened there? Oh yeah, I remember the Gays didn't want to tolerate others beliefs so they tried to attack them. Yet wanted people to tolerate there's. The definition of Hypocrisy!

Exact same thing is happening know. Christians are tired of you idiots trying to pervert the tradition's we grew up on! The line needs to be drawn!

How about...

Too many gay's and hipster's like you trying to push their own agenda's while thinking it's Ok to destroy traditions because it makes everyone feel better.

My agenda is to destroy traditions of irrationality and that would make me feel better.

"Christians are tired of you idiots trying to pervert the tradition's we grew up on! The line needs to be drawn!"

It's impossible to pervert that which doesn't exist, you probably grew up (?) with the traditional belief in santa claus, do you still believe in that too?

The "Gays"?

I'm not gay and I despise bigotry. Especially bigotry that hides within the Liberty Movement.

sorry new at this!

Live Free Or Contemplate Your Death!

so will this episode finally end cable TV?

really, do we still even need networks, channels, etc. coming to us through cable companies?

I would think producing a show with streaming video on the internet would decentralize the whole system to where we don't need cable or satelite companies charging us for crap we don't want. Duck Dynasty could produce their own show and have a website for people to watch it.

A&E to G&L they are about to Taste the Chick-Fil-A

.............and its gonna be Expensive.

The Robertson's are going to

The Robertson's are going to come out on the other end of this much stronger than they were before.

The market sorts all things out.

The timing on this

So this is the story that was chosen to be "breaking news" the day after the Federal Reserve's tapering announcement.

This whole ordeal is beyond

This whole ordeal is beyond hilarious.
Crazy Phil Robertson and family can't be bought out by the kooky media complex.

When this man dies, they better carve an image of his likeness into the Kisatchie Hills for all Louisianans to see.

Southern Agrarian

Hmmmm...

I have actually never watched the show...nor damn near anything on TV anymore but I can surmise what was said.
I'm not sure why I should care one way or the other...there are so many bigger things to concern myself with.

BUT WAY MORE IMPORTANT IS...are my eyes going nuts or are there "snow flakes" or "tiny bubbles" dropping down the screen of the Daily Paul???

Cause I am kinda afraid I might be on some trippy hallucination thing if not.

Finally something to talk about...

Snowflakes—all different and individually beautiful, all from the same source regardless of their size or design. Some are soft and fluffy others are heavy and wet, yet they're all just snowflakes falling on the earth to cover it for a moment before they melt and evaporate right back up to their source and start a new journey all over again.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

…and a single snow flake can do nothing

but when they unite, they can bring a nation to a grinding holt.
I wish liberty could behave like snowflakes.

Hi ya Snowflake! I love the analogy

I'm a snowflake too! ;)

What analogy? ;)

(Hi!)

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Sorry, the analogy

is what I read into it ;) such is the ever changing cycle of life and I included the water memory video to show memory and energy remain as I believe does the human spirit.

My sarcasm sucks :)

I knew what you meant, hopefully others "get it" too.

Thank you for the video. Nice "bite size" info compared to the Masaru Emoto documentary. I haven't had a drink of water the same way since. There's a lot of thought and feeling involved now. So much beauty and wonder out there to discover and discuss and really "give a pluck about" ;)

Thank you!

Someone else is seeing them. I thought I was having a brain aneurysm or something.

nah, I haven't had any 'srooms for years, decades even,

and I can see them.
You are not alone!

That's right, buy into the agenda set by the MSM

Like a good little pawn. Trained well, I see.

You took it all in, hook line and sinker: Culture wars. Divide and conquer. Us-vs-Them. Christians vs. Homos. Ultimately it is still Americans-vs.-Americans.

Somehow I expected more from you BT, but at this point, I can't explain why.

We have bigger fish to fry. I thought you knew that.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Right... because TPTB

Right... because TPTB 'engineered' the fact that homosexuality is condemned by God.

It seems the irony of your quote is not lost on us all.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
