Principles are Principles

But Money is Money

will continue to profit off Phil Robertson and his family during Christmas week -- despite the fact that they benched Phil for his recent anti-gay comments -- because the network will be airing SEVERAL huge "Duck Dynasty" marathons.

DD is pretty much taking over A&E's Christmas schedule. The network will air 4 separate rerun marathons of the show in 4 days (December 22-25) totaling 35.5 hours of air time.

December 22 -- 5PM-4AM EST
December 23 -- 7PM-4AM EST
December 24 -- 6PM-9PM EST
December 25 -- 3:30PM-4AM EST

Pretty ironic ... A&E, on the one hand, is indignant over Phil's comment but not mad enough to pass up a buck ... not to mention the fact that they knew exactly how he felt before they hired him
because he publicly preached about his beliefs for years.

So we gotta ask ...

whats hypocritical is that you have guys who do family guy and bill maher who constantly bash religion.yet never get fired or anything.but the moment someone speaks his pro religious beliefs they fire him.its called double standards.." we can preach our non belief in god but you better not preach your beliefs in the bible and god"

Everywhere I turn in a store I see DD merchandise. If the merchandise wasn't selling as projected, it is now with last minute Christmas shopping. I say it was a very $trategic maneuver.

fuck TMZ    

Tell me how this isn’t hypocritical? Paul Dean got the full wrath for her freedom of speech whereas this douche is getting support for his? How is that not hypocrisy and a double standard? This douche should feel the full wrath just like Paul Dean did. It is either ALL ok for EVRYBODY or none is ok, period.

In an interview in the January issue of GQ, Robertson says homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. 'Duck Dynasty' star: Homosexuality wrong "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," he's quoted as saying. Asked what, in his mind, is sinful, Robertson replied: "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men." He also made comments regarding race and growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era. T

I don't agree with his point of view.
But everyone is allowed to have thier own opinion.

A&E does sound really hypocritical.

Ummm. What is Duck Dynasty? And secondly, I do believe in Freedom of Speech. But I also believe in people being fully responsible for what they say and taking the consequences of it. Good or Bad. You blow up at your boss, you get fired. You degrade a person/persons/groups/ race/sexual preference with your words, you could also get fired

TMZ accusing someone else of hypocrisy? Ironic much?

Please remember that A&E is owned and operated by Disney/ABC.

Good news is that the new season of Duck Dynasty has already been filmed and all 10 episodes feature Phil. The new season starts in January.
