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."

This is taken out of context. He also said that he wouldn't treat anyone disrespectful because they were different. The lesson I'm learning is that freedom of speech only applies to liberals.

They have a point, it's called free speech. He shouldn't be suspended for speaking his mind. We all have opinions, and the anti-gay was his.

So tired of people being intolerant of other's viewpoints. A&E made a foolish decision here.

It is about time people stand up against the gay agenda and I hope the politician's take notice. When gay issues come up for public votes they always lose!! Even in liberal Cal!

Ratings...advertisers...A and E image.... The knee-jerk suspension is the first thing you do to protect these things. The suspension rather than firing opens a window to ease Phil back into the show if time and temperature dictates so.

Mista steal yo hoe    

Someone must of been a gay at a&e cause i havent heard anyone else complaining. Those 2 gays from storage wars said they love phil and will still watch the show because they werent offended. The only ones offended are probably the ones who havent been accepted yet or came out of the closet. If your gona be gay, still act like a normal respectable person, dont bicker and say"were gay thats offensive"

I dont have any problems with gays, by all means be gay, but when its used to claim yourself as a victim to opinions of other people, thats sad and you should be a shame.
