The guys from "Duck Dynasty" are NOT in danger of losing their biggest sponsor, Under Armour -- 'cause while the company tells TMZ its not down with Phil Roberston's homophobic comments, its not willing to kill the business relationship ... yet.

UA -- which sponsors the Duck Commander business, founded by Phil -- just issued a statement to TMZ ... saying, "We have no plans to change our current relationship.

The company adds, "We are obviously aware of the situation. And his comments are not indicative of Under Armour's views."

UA insists the company is committed to treating all people equally and with respect ... even if Phil isn't.

If every pastor in America would preach the Bible and what it says about homosexuality, this wouldn't be front page news. This man and Under Amour are real stand up men. I'll buy their products.

Under Armor is smart enough to realize they could loose a lot of money if they drop them! However A&E is not!

I saw some of their goofy T-shirts at the store today and it is beyond me why anyone finds this show even remotely interesting, much less who would want to buy clothing with these odd-looking bearded men on them.

It does not matter in the least the substance of his comments, he said he himself does in no way judge, he simply gave an opinion, which is his right in this country to do, who gives a sht whose feelings he indirectly hurt ? We have fkn freedom of speech? Whether u agree or not, if a man can open fk an marry another man, this guy can say whatever the fk he wants about it, WITHOUT PENALTY.
