A&E puts Phil Robertson on “indefinite hiatus”

A&E has reportedly placed “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus from the show after he made a number of brutally honest comments about homosexuality in an interview with GQ.

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely,” A&E said in a statement.

    Well, it’s obvious to me that it isn’t Phil that is the intolerant one. Thank you, A&E for taking the side of a deviant minority over Christians.

      ALL Americans must stand up for their beliefs & values! He is only exercising his constitutionally granted rights! A&E is a typical liberal run media organization and acting accordingly!

    Looks to me like he just stated what Christianity teaches. He was not hateful or mean spirited, but everyone kowtows to the very small homosexual community, why I don’t know. I suppose the gay card is like the race card, people need to stand up & tell the haters to pound sand! There is no guarantee in the constitution that you won’t be offended, so get over it, I had to when Obama was elected.

    Time to put A&E on indefinite hiatus. If Christians will stand up and protect their views the way the liberal deviants try to cram their views down on everyone else, we can make a difference.

    If true, then the rest of the Robertson family ought to tell A&E goodbye, adios, see you later and quit the show.

    I hope the rest of the Robertson family puts themselves on “suspension” as well, just ending the show for awhile. I say this not because I am against the show, as a matter of fact, it is one of the BEST shows on television today. Duck Dynasty has made A&E MILLIONS of dollars. Phil Robertson answered a question HONESTLY, based on HIS BELIEFS from the Bible, and for this A&E feels they need to “suspend” him from the show? Maybe Phil & the Robertsons sue A&E for violating his Constitutional right of free speech and for “suspending” him for exercising this right, in an article, not even connected to the show.
    I know some out there believe the Robertsons are just another bunch of “Honey boo-boo’s”, but remember, BEFORE the show came along, they were MULTI-MILLIONAIRES, running a very profitable business. They DO NOT need A&E or a T.V. show to survive.
    So maybe A&E should rethink this “suspension” or get ready to lose the number 1 show on t.v.!

    I just got off the phone with Direct TV, cancelling A&E’s programming until further notice, and I don’t even watch the show regularly. It’s the principal of the thing. They finally air a program which doesn’t automatically portray Southerners as bumbling backwoods idiots and then they go and pull something like this. I’m very curious about what the other 14,000,000 viewers will have to say about it.
