'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."

I'm also quite convinced that this looks staged. I mean, having an opinion, free speech etc. is one thing, but broadcasting you opinion over a network is not free speech in terms of civil rights. If you hate gay Ngs, you can say your opinion, but if you put it on a plane banner and fly over LA, that's illegal (i guess) . . .

people get offended because of the anti gay remarks with reason... its still a big deal to be gay these days....people have not grasped that concept so the lesson to be told is watch what you say, think before you speak and mind your business about other people's sexuality as it does not concern you.

If you have an opinion about someone's sexuality, keep it to yourself. There are boundaries one should not cross and we have come such a long way with gay rights that a mountain hick like that should be taught a lesson for opening his ugly trap.

He can believe whatever he wants. Im gay you don't have to agree. I personally think its just as bad to agree with me. Because you dont understand that you just should not have an opinion about what i am doing. Right or wrong doesn't matter. 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 people use their beliefs to discriminate against or hurt people. 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

The biggest problem straight ppl have with gays from my perspective is that instead of trying to assimilate into a civilized society,, they try to take over and turn that society over to favor them. There's a difference between wanting equal rights, and wanting treatment that borders being entitled to to certain immunities.

Exactly how many Vajayjay's has Phil had a good look at? He speaks like he is an expert on them. I bet he has to roll Miss Kay around in flour to find any wet spots on her. Phil likes good ol plump vajayjay's.

Why do gays claim to be a same sex couple.. Every gay couple I ever knew has one that acts feminine and one that acts masculine

This is how the left contorts things. Phil used anatomically correct verbiage for body parts. It is TMZ that disrespectfully twists what Phil said into "MAN - ASS" in their usual crude, low-echelon demeanor. Phil never tried to demean or be crude, but TMZ's headline went RIGHT THERE, knowing full well Phil NEVER USED THOSE WORDS.

I don't discriminate against gays. They have the same 1st Amendment RIGHT as well. Just let Phil have his too.

The only reason A&E suspended him was because they feared backlash from the LBGTQ community. Did they not think (or care) what the people who agree with Phil would do? They didn't think that the likely majority of people who watch that show skew conservative? I may not agree with him but he just answered a question asked of him and now they're punishing him for sharing his belief and opinion. That's not right either.

So according to hollywood and our dear friends over at TMZ , give Miley Cyrus a humble laugh and a thumbs up, but the moment someone on a show like duck dynasty and a person like Phil Robertson who is the polar opposite of these "yuppies" as he puts it lol gets scorned for having an opinion?? Wow this fiasco A&E created for themselves shows more about their own bigotry more than anything else.

The real issue here is the clash between two worldviews. The naturalistic worldview of A & E espouses ethical relativism and the worldview of Phil Robertson espouses theism. The former advocates ethical and moral fluidity while the latter advocates the fixity of transcendent principles. One is founded on sand and the other on rock. Implications?
