They keep focusing on the negative and not adding that he also said that he would nevee judge them just because they aren’t like him. He also said that he loves all humanity and God, so stop hating on him because you don’t know the full story.

I the Bible it says that man should not lay down with man and woman should not lay down with woman. Why did they ask Phil the question in the first place? What has this world came to you can speak your own thoughts that’s a bunch of crap!

You should be fired for your bigotry. And, your twisting of words.

First off he didn’t slam them, he just said what he believed, none of what he said came off as a slamming hateful way
Second, why wouild you ban Phil from a show about his family for stating his christian beliefs and let Miley Cyrus do all of those inapropriate things on tv where millions of kids can see, tell me how that makes any sense.
And Third, we as the American eople have a right to say what we want, no matter what, the Westboro Baptist Church says things a heck of a lot worse than that, do they get banned from their pickiting? Nope…but when an honest and good man states his beliefs he gets banned off his own show.
So when the constitution was signed it enabled us to have the power to voice our opinions, but in todays society it’s more like we have freedom of speech as long as it’s acceptable to the liberal media. I give my respect to Phil Robertson. But not to you liberal media…not to you…

“We are so impressed that A&E is taking such a strong stance against Phil’s anti-gay comments. We hope he will learn and grow from this experience”

I hope that he will not be intimidated into watering down the truth and what he believes just because of gay pressure. I’m not impressed with A & E at all. They’re dishonest. I read an interview where Phil said the producers put in fake bleeps to make it look like they were cursing on the show and they weren’t cursing. I’m impressed by all the people who are rallying around and supporting Phil and his right to speak his Christian belief on subject which, by the way, is right from the Bible. Why do others have the right to speak and not the Christian? Too bad if someone is offended. Freedom of speech. Don’t want an honest answer about what someone believes then DON’T ASK!!

Anybody who watches the show would have to know that Phil would have that kind of opinion. Come on people! I don’t agree with what he said but it wasn’t hateful. He didn’t say kill them all or something dumb like that, he was simply stating an opinion that the majority of southern christians believe. I personally dont believe in what he said. I don’t think anyone is going to heaven regardless what they believe in.

Phil has a right to his views and his opinions. Just like A&E has a right to support whatever they choose to. The issue is that A&E choose to treat a celebrity people badly because they don’t agree with their views and personal stances. Totally ridiculous!

This is downright ridiculous! What the hell has happened to freedom of speach?? The main was asked for his opinion in an interview! He gave an honest answer and now he’s been kicked off the show?? If you ask for an opinion, you need to be prepared for ANY answer!!! Common sense will tell you that. Everyone has an opinion about everything but you can’t punish someone just because you don’t agree with theirs. I think A&E should have issued their statement and then continued filming the show as is. People seem to have to watch what they say about anything and everything these days and it’s ridiculous. Props to Sara Palin for standing up to this issue!!!

I do not agree with suspending phil from the show. everyone has their own opinion about things in life and if you dont want to know what they think then you should not ask questions.

So only gay people are allowed to have an opinion or a belief… If anyone believes otherwise is punished and persecuted… Why do you people act so shocked when you hear a Christians point of view… You already know what the answer is going to be…. You are supposed to be tolerated not pandered to… Stop making it easy for people to hate your group… By the way you don’t see Christians publicly executing homosexuals like the Muslims do….

He has EVERY right to express his opinion on the topic, and if he would have praised gays it would be fine.
Not everyone is going to agree with everything. If I were him, I’d fight against it.
It’s freedom of speech, it’s not hate speech, it’s his opinion.
He wasn’t hurting anyone, just a bunch of adults who’s feelings are to sensitive.
What effect does his opinion have on anyone? It’s not like it’s going to stop gays from being gays so I really don’t see the big deal.
Don’t put him on the show? Why? because not seeing his face may clean up the mess…

We need some brains behind production, get over it. It’s an opinion and he didn’t shoot you with a gun or hurt you in any physical way.

How come people who know the truth aren’t able to express it? Are we not entitled to OUR freedom of speech? Phil is right, and I agree with him completely.GAYS DO NOT GO INTO HEAVEN. I admire him for standing up for what the Bible says. One day everyone will stand before God, and gays and people who thinks that gays are good and acceptable WILL burn in a lake of fire. Choose wisely.

So f*cking ridiculous… He’s entitled to his belief and glaad is entitled to support theirs… and don’t give me that “oh, a person doesn’t have a right to voice a racist/homophobic/minority viewpoint BS”… THAT IS EXACTLY what he is allowed to do (see Constitution)… glaad is just as guilty as phil in that they both are making judgments/stereotypes/conclusions that do not necessarily apply… A&E just lost all credibility as well for having no backbone… All you’ve done is engaged in censorship when it’s this type of behavior that makes for great tv…. Whether in the form of exposing someone for who they really are or enlightening viewers… Let the viewer hear and decide for him/herself… Don’t just bend over like a b*tch to the whims of glaad… #pitiful

I find it funny that people get so offended when gays and lesbians are bashed. But blacks, asians and other minorities are bashed EVERYDAY. The BIBLE clearly states that marriage is between a man and woman. I don’t think he should be punished for his beliefs.

People are not entitled to opinions anymore if they offend someone. I don’t agree wit wat e said but I do appreciate free speech. Do gays go to Heaven? Who the hell knows?! Do the producers of the show know? Of course they don’t. I don’t even believe in religion but I can look at a man and a woman and see some glaring differences that make it look like they were supposed to be together. People need to get over themselves.

Baloney. No one has a right not to be offended. If that were the case, please sew up the mouth of every person since everyone can be offended at something. You do not get to tell me what opinion to have, ma’am. Get over it. And, no, unrepentant sinners outside of Christ do not go to heaven. Jesus told his disciples a whole list of those who won’t inherit the kingdom of God and then proceeded to tell them that they USED to be those things but now they are washed, etc. People who really come to Christ don’t remain thieves, adulterers, homosexuals, or fornicators. If you don’t want to believe any of that, fine. But don’t tell people what opinions they can and can’t have. This stuff just makes me angry.
