'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."

Everyone has rights to an opinion because no matter who we are everyone has a difference of opinion. If homosexuals are upset about it ignore it. If we all learned to ignore comments that bothers us there wouldn't be as much violence in the world. If we judge him for his beliefs then we are as so called as bad as him.

Freedom of speech means, yes, say what you want, but it doesn't mean your employer can't enforce consequences. It is all a publicity stunt anyway, calm down.

If you want to support Phil, DO NOT BUY THE DUCK DYNASTY PRODUCT ...BUY DUCK COMMANDER PRODUCTS ...A&E owns the "Duck Dynasty" trademark. The Robertson family owns the DUCK COMMANDER trademark and products , SO BUY DIRECTLY FROM THEM ...NOT THE DUCK DYNASTY LINE OF PRODUCTS ! Go to duckcommander. com to see their products and support the family.

Old mountain man looking fool. Phil looks like ZZ Top's retarded brother who was kept in the attic for years. These hateful, racist fools always claim they are preaching the word of the Bible, but Christianity is based on Jesus's teachings. Jesus preached love and acceptance for everyone. Jesus did NOT discriminate. And Duck Dynasty is a stupid show that will soon go the way of other stupid "reality" shows like Billy the Exterminator, Criss Angel Mindfreak, the moonshiner idiots, the Hoggers, etc., etc., etc. Good riddance.

Funny headline considering the story, hope that sponsor doesn't stand too close behind Phil, he might get uncomfortable.

As I've taught for YEARS: How two consenting-adults conduct themselves in-private, is strictly between them, and Almighty God. Yet, to demand purported "Rights"
or to promote -among children- YOUR sexually-based
"lifestyle" is equally offensive and absurd.
Still. Viacom, TimeWarner, and numerous other
components of a CONFIRMED Fascist "Government",
aggressively encourage and promote this "choice"?

He can believe whatever he wants. Im gay yiu dont have to agree. I personally think its just as bad ti agree with me. Because you dont understand that you just should not have an opinion about what i am doing. As long as im not a threat to the rest of society you have your beliefs and i have mine.the problem comes in when peiple use their beliefs to discriminate against ir hurt peiple. But noone has to agree with people being gay. Thats not homophobic. Homophobic is when you are hurting someone else by your beliefs against them. The world is so sensitive

His comments were his opinions, it's not like he was mocking someone else for who they are, he did make comments about what they do. Gays need to stop defining themselves based on a sexual act and start defining themselves as an individual character based on beliefs and principles. It was just a comparison this man made on a sexual act. If your gonna be so sensitive then stop being gay. You can't stop being black or a midget, but you can stop being a gay person. There is a such thing as free will that allows ppl to avoid sinful temptations. I do believe slang words and profanity have no place on tv and that there are consequences for our words especially in the work place. The work place is not our kitchen tables. This man has a right to say what he wants without legal consequences, but a company can decide if they want that person representing them. If someone came out and said premarital sex is a sin, nobody would be fighting with them or if they said stealing is a sin. Bring gay is a sin.. Point blank.. We are all sinners but stop acting like homosexuality is not a sin

I am watching TMZ LIVE. I keep hearing you guys say when Phil wraps the bible or religion around the remarks that he made it is homophobic. FREEDOM OF SPEECH GUYS! I don't care if he wrapped 24 carat gold tissue paper around what he says, FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Slowly all of our rights as Americans are being taken away! Who cares what he says, if you don't like what he says, DON'T LISTEN!
