Dear A&E, congratulations, you just committed suicide

As a fan of Duck Dynasty, the Bible, and free speech, I heartily applaud Matt Walsh’s recent blog post – check it out, and share it with your friends! Then write a letter to A&E telling them that you disapprove of their attack against free speech – and maybe even consider boycotting the network until they bring Phil Robertson back…

Dear A&E,

I read that you are indefinitely suspending Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty after he quoted the Bible and said that the homosexual act is sinful. I get it, guys. I do. You punished the Christian guy for being a Christian because you got some angry emails from a bunch of whiny gay activists who lack the spine and maturity to deal with the fact that there are still people out there who have the guts to articulate opinions that they find disagreeable. In so doing, you’ve kowtowed to a pushy minority of vocal bullies who don’t even watch your channel, while alienating the fan base of the one show that keeps your entire network afloat.

Makes sense.

You’ve got standards, after all. You wouldn’t want to be associated with tasteless and inappropriate things. The people on Duck Dynasty can’t be allowed to run around being all Christian-like. It…

    Not surprising. I mean look at society today we allow teachers to have sexual relations with our children and then say the teacher is too pretty to go to jail. The justice is gone here in the US and the people who are doing the right things are all having to pay.

    As a Wesleyan, Armenian Christian background, I want to thank you for your article and your stand. I am very disappointed at our country right now. I am concerned about our churches and our pastors. I believe Phil has every right to free speech and he has every right to answer questions with honesty. I believe the sleeping giant (silent Christians) is awake and we will see some awesome things happen from this.

    There is a petition on change.org that I just signed. It’s called: “A&E Network: Bring Phil Robertson back!”

    I don’t think that anyone should should promote hate and judgement, let alone a Christian. But ignorance can’t be helped. Maybe some people should get educated on homosexuality and transgender. It is not a choice!

      I agree wholeheartedly that no one should be promoting hate and judgment. The Christian message is one of love, acceptance and forgiveness! That being said, the Bible does teach that homosexuality is a sin, and that’s all that Phil Robertson was saying. He was also very careful to state that he believes we should love and respect all people, regardless of their personal beliefs or lifestyle choices.

  5. I liked the point about Chick-fil-A last year. They reacted as opposed to responding to the issue. It reminds me of the past few Proverbial Thoughts!
