'Duck Dynasty' Sponsor

We Stand Behind Phil

1219-phil-robertson-skyjacker
If "Duck Dynasty" network A&E feared advertisers would scatter like waterfowl after a shotgun blast because of Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments ... it's not happening.

A company called Skyjacker -- which builds truck suspensions -- tells us it stands solidly behind Phil and the show ... saying it's a matter of God and country -- it's a free country and Phil has a right to his opinions.

Company brass tells us it goes beyond the Constitution ... to the Creator:  "We are a Christian- based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us."

Robertson opened up a can of worms when he said homosexuality and bestiality were the same sin ... his church seems to back Phil up on that.

Officials at White's Ferry Road Church just told us, "We love him and support him."

Correction....he did not say the beastiality and homosexuality were the same sin. He said both were sin along with adultery, slander, etc. Get the facts right, please. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. That's not a fact, that is truth. In fact it is one of the sins God says is an abomination. But notice it is not the person who is an abomination, but the sin. Big difference. God loves all and wish none would perish.

what was once the gay or aids stigma, is now the christian stigma. you have to hide if you are a conservative or a christian. and everyone thinks that you should. people are lunatics. you will be persecuted relentlessly if you have christian values or morals. it is simply crazy. if you can't live with someone reserving their right to practice their own religion, and that their opinion has no affect on your personal life whatsoever, if you think they should be silenced, because they do not approve of your lifestyle and express this publicly, then you are sorely mistaken. really.

and don't go trying to blame the whole aids and gay stigma on christians. if anything, they were the ones who went above and beyond to help people with aids, and gays. there were plenty of others who were everything but christian who were the biggest and most vicious aggressors towards the gays and towards those with aids. look what they got in return. what do you think YMCA was? duh. and look at what they got in return from the gay communities. molested 'christian' boys to force homosexuality. sure tmz, go ahead and erase/delete this comment, because i am sure you will.

Phil made a comments to parade magazine about not staying with the show much longer. So couldn't this just be a way to leave the show without upsetting fans. Or possibly hurting the duck dynasty brand.

"he said homosexuality and bestiality were the same sin ... his church seems to back Phil up on that."

I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual immorality, and sensuality that they have practiced. 2 Corinthians 12:21

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 1 Corinthians 6:9

Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Jude 1:7

The Bible seems to back Phil up on that also...

TMZ, E! and the rest of the gay media need to get this through their heads. Being gay is not a race, a religion or a disability. It's a sexual perversion. Keep it to yourself like everyone else or face ridicule like everyone else who makes their perversions public.

Gays are just the most tolerant group ever.....as long
as you say exactly what they want you to say.

Shame on those who kow tow to the gays and lesbians.

When someone takes a stand against an immoral and destructive lifestyle because of His Christianity he should not be criticized,but rather applauded. Light has a tendency to bring hatred from those who are guilty.

Love how the media twist words. He never said beastility and homosexual were the same sins. He listed a wide variety of sins. And there are many more. Worry is a sin for example. So, he gets fired for quoting the Bible. We see were all of this is going. No Christ in plays at school, Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. It is an all out assualt on Christians, Jesus and the Bible. Think Americans are starting to get fed up with the PC crowd where such a small minority speaks for the majority. Sad.

I feel he has every right to his opinions as do all the other people who get their feet held to the fire for saying something that isn't politically correct. According to public opinion. Since when did it become a law you couldn't speak your opinions without getting fired from your job? This society is so afraid their words being taken as racist or politically correct that we're afraid to be ourselves anymore and are portrayed as fake. That is why when the cameras are supposed to be off, sometimes someone catches the real person personality. Then the nation is furious of what they heard, but after all, we are all human and without flaws we'd be boring.
