I’d like Duck Dynasty to remain on television but I support the Robertson Family in taking the show off television, if Phil, the owner and leader, can’t remain part of it.
The FOX article, “Duck Dynasty: Can’t imagine show going on without Phil” was sent to me by my oldest son, it’s worth a read, our younger generation gets it, maybe us older PC crowd should finally get it too. The video interview is also good, go to the article to watch it.
“In the spirit of American tolerance of religious diversity, A&E should reinstate Mr. Robertson and apologize for its religious bigotry,” quote from the Liberty Institute.
Personally, I stand united with loving each individual as the God given gift they are. This includes loving those who’ve chosen a path different than mine, but they should allow me the right to work and live free to share my faith. If you’ve ever felt like you can’t speak up for your faith, or you’ve been shamed into being silent, you’ve been silenced by the PC crowd. It’s not hate speech to say you don’t believe in some behavior. Why do 1.2-5.6% of our society dictate so much to the remaining 97% of us, see chart below on the numbers.
This is a great article about a company whose existence reflects their faith, I’ve read their books and heard them speak. These are regular Americans, like the rest of us, and I love the message of faith they’ve brought into our home. Business owners, like Phil, have built their companies on the rules God gave us, it’s obvious to many who use those rules to build a business.
Business leaders have come under attack in the last decade like never before. Perhaps deserved in some regards, but the bullying of leadership that expresses an opinion is unamerican.
Phil Robertson spoke his firmly held beliefs and A&E chose to terminate his show. They ended his livelihood because individuals disagreed with his point of view.
Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. If you’re not celebrating Christmas, I’m happy to learn more about how you’ll be celebrating the season. But for me and mine, we’re celebrating Christmas and likely to watch Duck Dynasty.
God Bless you and your families,
