'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."

By-by A&E, you piss off 11,000,000 viewers, your ratings will go down the toilet, your revenue will go down the toilet, and you go by-by for the betterment of mankind

Why are liberals shocked Christians support Phil? Read the Bible lately?

Oh TMZ...

'he said homosexuality and bestiality were the same sin'

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! He said that homosexuality and bestiality are both sins. So is lying, murder, adultery, coveting, getting drunk, etc.

If you're going to try to spin this liberally, at least be honest about it!

FREE SPEECH! End of subject!
This is a "REALITY" show Is the word "REALITY" misunderstood the same way that the word "ILLEGAL" is misunderstood in ILLEGAL alien??

Last time I checked we had the right of freedom of speech. Why should he get penalized for speaking his mind. I think the media sometimes will make a certain person "look" a certain way if that person goes against the majority of the publics belief...

They have the law on their side, too. A&E have clearly violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act which prohibits adverse employment actions based on an employee’s religious beliefs. Robertson was asked what he considers sin and answered based on the tenants of his religious. This is, therefore, a prima facia case that any first year law student could win. Phil just made another 10 mill, if he bothers to peruse it.

2% of the population should not rule the nation.
FREE SPEECH is our right and those who do not like what others say just ignore it.

Phil Robertson did NOT say "homosexuality and bestiality were the same sin." Read the full quote from the Vanity Far interview.

The welfare state that we now have was a masterful creation by democrats which has provided a never ending sea of votes, while worsening the plight of the poor. Now, we have all this political correctness crammed down our throats. The problem is that while both policies sound good on the surface, they're both LIES!!!!!!

These are the type of things that only makes Christianity stronger in America. Remember when the LGBT community tried to boycott Christian owned Chick Fil a? It only made people eat Chick Fil-A even more. Their sales went through the roof. I waited in line for 45 minutes to support Chick Fil-A.

Truth, to degenerates and their supporters, is always "homophobic". The pain they feel is the light trying to burn the crud off their souls.
