Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- On December 18th 2013 A&E suspended Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson “indefinitely” for comments he made regarding his views on homosexuality, adultery and sin.

The comments came during an interview appearing in the January issue of GQ magazine.

According to the Chicago Tribune, A&E released the following statement in response: “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.”

Robertson’s comments consisted of recitation of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 from the Bible: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.” He added, “Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson also borrowed from the apostle Paul to argue that homosexuality “morphs” into baser things — like “bestiality.”

Robertson is arguably the biggest star on the biggest show on television. Even though his comments “are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty,” A&E yanked him from the show.

      A&E are cowards, and are contributing to the downfall of Christian faith (PC). Being PC will be the disgrace of this once great Nation and also the erosion of the Constitution.

    2. I for one will boycott A&E and all affiliated stations until Phil returns and an apology (written and verbal) is issued to Phil
      , his family and all supporters of the show whom also hold Christian beliefs.

    3. Time for another Chick-fil-A moment in regards to the homo-fascists at A&E.

      I understand that A&E gets a cut from “Duck Dynasty” gear, but not “Duck Commander”.

    5. I am done with A&E.

      As a Christian, I agree with Phil completely. Would I have expressed myself differently, maybe. In any case, A man’s beliefs are his, but his right to express them is a right we all have and should not be subrogated to the PC police.

    6. Looks like religion, family and guns are anathema to this regime’s agenda.

    7. There is a war on Christianity. AnE,anti religious groups, atheists, Muslim fundamentalists need to be shoved back, fought for every step they take. Phil Robertson is a good man and should never gave been punished for his opinions. Unlike the Amateur-in-Chief; Mr.Robertson isn’t afraid to speak his mind and stand by his core beliefs. The family should walk out as one. If there’s another show in their future, great! I hope so. But those intolerant Jackasses at AnE should pay in advertising dollars, etc. Their loss.

      I agree. What A-E did was not right. He said what he feel and I agree with him all the way.

      Personally, I’m off to Wall-Mart for another
      Duck Commander T-Shirt and I don’t hunt ducks.

    10. Anyone buying duck commander stuff from Walmart please check its NOT DUCK DYNASTY. That’s A&E merchandise.

    11. And while you’re there don’t forget to buy an Uncle Phil Chia Sculpture!
