We have officially become a fascist nation….be careful because now what’s “acceptable” to say depends on who is in charge….let’s hope it’s always “your guy. ”
Love ya Phil

OMG I’ am so tired of the BS Christianity It wasn’t even around till the the roman empire made it for a way to calm down the people.. Then they Used God as a way to to invade and murder millions of people. Come on the bible based on there out look say’s there are no Dinosaur’s and we made them up….
I don’t care if someone wants to be gay or even if they think god is real And yes we all have the right of free speech but use your brains.
If you take to the bible so hard dose it not say be nice to one another and care and respect one another, how is talking down about someone making them feel bad and drive a bunch of people to depression just cuz they have a no choice on who they like then they take there own life cuz people make them feel like dirt.

Tell me in the bible where dose it say to treat people as if they are dirt and with out love..
Its a good thing I don’t think the bibles are real cuz there are like 100 different one that all say one thing or another and not one is the same..
So I ask How do you guys know what one really has the real words of God they all claim to be the Words of god.

Looks like this article is really hateful! Hateful towards Phil. Hateful towards Christian beliefs. Oh it’s ok for homos to shove their agenda down our throats. But Christians speak up and oh they are being hateful. Yeah. That’s what this world has come to. If u don’t tolerate my homosexuality then u hate me. And u hate all homos.

Christians should start a don’t hate campaign. Don’t hate bcz we believe the bible.
Stop spreading hate bcz we speak out about Jesus.

Am I supposed to take this article seriously when it starts off saying fans were shocked by Phil’s comments? Anyone who watches the show wouldn’t expect anything else than for him to quote the Bible and talk about his life experiences.

The only hateful comments I have heard came from the faggots whining about being called out as the miscreants they are.

This is to me a control of what people can or cannot
say. Sound like Communisiam not democracy.
You may not like what I say but everyone has a right
to say it even if it isn’t worded the way you would like as not everyone is
Educated. Who is really trying to force their beliefs
On the world by running to A&E to get rid of Phil?
The only family that acknowledges God on TV and
now it is being destroyed by people who are
IGNORANT. People should just go home and love
their family (that’s where peace starts) and stop
destroying others

“Lovely. As ignorant as Phil’s words are…”

Last time I checked, that’s in the Bible what Phil said. Shows how ignorant you are Shaunna Murphy. Go sleep around with every douche bag actor in California to try and make a name for yourself

Kate, you obviously know nothing about Christianity and probably didn’t read the article in full. Did he not say it was not up to him to judge? Did he not say it is for God to do that is is supposed to live everyone. You must be filled with hate or guilt. I didn’t hear hate, I heard he doesn’t understand the desire and quite frankly I do not either. No woman can do for me what a man can and if it weren’t for us non gays, gays would not have children, and we all would no longer exist because they cannot reproduce. So go ahead and try to beat us down you will NOT succeed

Yes I guess Phil is a hero. It must be honorable to stand by your convictions and throw stones, hate and judgement. I just want to know one thing….did Phil read the rest of the bible or did he skip the parts about judging others, gluttony, idols, ect….just curious to see which of his sins are better than others.

You sound like an Idiot. The show is great. You obviously haven’t watched it enough. At the end of the show they always pray. Did you know A&E told them they couldn’t do that they couldn’t do that anymore? But the Robertson family said if they wouldn’t let them pray at the end of the show they wasnt going to be a show anymore. I stand behind Phil 100%. He has every right to express his opinion as much as anyone else. Even if he did make a hateful, “racist” comment, there’s millions of other people who do it everyday. Get over yourselves, guys. Go hate on foam finger humping, no butt twerking Miley Cyrus.

Amen! That is why I have given 17 years of my life to defend that amendment! I. am willing to die so that everyone even the Gays are free to do what they want! But I am a Christian and I am a believer in what Mr. Robertson said. The Irony here is if the situation was reversed, many of the immoral members of our society, especially most of the media personal, would Praise the individual for saying they are Gay, or degrading Christians. The network would totally ignore Faith based organizations even though the number of members and followers of Christ just in this Country is 10 times the number of Gays. The network definitely should consider the following before trying to jump on the politically correct band wagon!

Just another reason our country is going to downhill. Everyone MUST be political correct.You are not allowed an opinion. I support freedom of speech and if this is his belief then he has a right to answer a reporter’s question with his thoughts and not what the liberal media expect. WE are not allowed to be individuals any longer.

It is a brave thing to stand by your convictions in modern day America. You my friend are a true American, someone who stands by his beliefs. I for one will not be watching anything put out by A&E until they remove this ban. I am a proud disabled vet who supports not only the freedom of choice but the freedom of speech. Stand tall Phil and never give way to the intolerance of close minded affiliates. I hope your entire family does not take this sitting down. let them speak there minds as well. God bless.

To who wrote this article: you are ignorant and need to read the entire article in GQ. You have completely taken Phil’s words out of context and twisted them. He did not compare homosexuals to anything, he simply said that in the bible (our word of GOD) homosexuals are considered sinners along with other types of sinners. The man was asked what he thought about all the sin going on in the world. I love how the article was about Phil’s life and beliefs, but all anyone is taking from it is that he said homosexuals are sinners and that he worked in the cotton field with slaves. He never said that black people where happier as slaves, he simply said that he lived in a time when all you needed was you’re faith and family to be happy. Which is how he still lives his life today. You can not bash the man for what the bible says. Our bible does say that sinners will not go to heaven unless they repent their sins. Our bible does consider homosexuality a sin along with a lot of other things that would make you a sinner. people need to stop taking his words out of context, and stop trying to argue with what the bible says because you will never win.

Kate wrong again. Duck Dynasty may be gone but Duck COMMANDER is not. A&E searched the Robertsons out not the other way around. See God blesses his Children who try to do the right thingthing. We don’t claim to be perfect we just accept our forgiveness. Just as I want to bless and give to my children God is amazing like that with us, we work and he multiples it and makes it grow. So I don’t think Phil is losing anything. He had money before them and he has not chosen to.let the money change him, maybe thats what is really bugging you, God has his back.

you are part of the problem….aside from using the correct anatomical terms (would you rather he had used other’s so often heard slanged by other celebrities? he quoted scripture..try reading the bible, specifically, Corinthians…though it may do you some good to read a few extra chapters. It seems the only people so insulted..are those that don’t believe in the word of God and that is your choice. don’t sensationalize this or tear apart their faith and values to fit your greed of ratings, seriously, you act like the family is so disgusted and against Phil…sorry hollywood…that family sticks together. if you are going to write, then write the truth rather than create ridiculous headlines. did you even read the original article??? if so, you’d understand Phil, aside from scripture, was stating what he thinks or feels is logical/illogical, and what he witnessed while he was also working along side of blacks..and you know what…a lot of blacks that were there..see NOTHING wrong in what phil said. who are you to say that those he was around in those days weren’t content? but you take it out of context..twist it, and the next thing you know, Phil is spreading hate, lying about EVERY black prior to civil rights…..give me a break. Go attack someone else. It’s sad we live in such a hedonistic society that is trying so desperately to eliminate any values whatsoever. Phil may not be perfect, but he has tenfold times the values that y’all do.

What I find amusing is the uproar. His experience with blacks is just that, his experience growing up in that part of Louisiana. He isn’t expousing upon the plight of blacks in Chicago, Newark, or Harlem in the time period he grew up. He calls his family “white trash” and you get shocked but at the same time everyone laughs at those silly “rednecks” on the show so please tell me why one is offensive and the other isn’t?

Exactly, but they twist it around and next thing you know, Phil is somehow responsible for all the suffering, and somehow the king of hate. Please….makes me sick. If they need a scapegoat for their lack of morals, faith, or values…let them trash each other rather than reporting that this family is so against Phil. In fact, one of the clauses in their contract was that in no way would they be played against one another or have to defend against one another. Obviously, they are sticking together, and obviously this uproar isn’t just about Phil, but the very threat that is against Christianity and values as a whole. People are tired of having to tip toe around this PC world . Believe it or not, there are millions of people that will defend God’s word to the end.

The only problem is that while you and millions of others are vigilantly standing by a book that was written a few thousand years ago, the rest of the world is evolving. Let me ask you this…why do you believe God wrote that book….I believe man did, infact I know he did. There are so many contradictions in the bible, alot of it just plain ignorant, silly and violent. If God wanted everyone to read the bible, it would have come out of the birth canal with you when you were born. What is pathetic is how millions of people who have a brain, can be easily manipulated, brain washed and controlled. I guess if nutcase Hitler could do it, I guess a scarey, condemning, violent book can, too.

Yep the rest of the world is evolving to crap, why Mothers dump their babies because they don’t know what love is. Also why we kill those we say we love. Because its a free for all with no morals or respect. If you took the time and read the one book that has held up to the test of time you might find its full of love and forgiveness that is why Jesus came and died. I would almost bet you celebrate Christmas, news flash its about the birth of Christ see Christ Christmas get the connection ? But the media has turned it into anything but what it represents. If you want to be so evolved take your free down and don’t give e or take any gifts bc if you do you acknowledge Jesus was born and he lives.

Yet another example of what this Nation has come to. If more of our countryman and leaders were of the Robertson Family’s beliefs and morals this country would not be in the situation we find ourselves in. Beliefs aside, man and women ended up on this planet to go forth and multiply together. Homosexuals can’t do that… Doesn’t that tell you something?? We as a country let them express their belief to their hearts content unmolested yet anyone not signing up to their program is not allowed to express their opinion.. Kinda reminds you of our government!! In any case I’d be proud to be a battle buddy with the Robertson Family any time, any place.. Hold the line Family Robertson!!! As you know you’re not alone….

Yes, you are right. If more people were like christians we would still be racist and blacks would be a step up from animals, but only for production reasons. Women would be stoned to death for losing their virginity and of course, men could have sex with a 1,000 women as long as they all are his wives. LOL, who in the hell do you think wrote the bible….lol, its obvious a man did. Grow up and use the brain you were given.

I find it amazing you quote something you dont know. If you did you would not make the statement about stoning…the rest of it goes like this. And Jesus said you who is without sin cast the first stone, they all dropped their stones and walked away. Then he asked her where her accusers were, she looked up and they were gone. Jesus said go and sin no more. Also no where in the bible is racism. Do you know that Moses married an Ethiopian woman (in case you dont know that means black) a and God blessed them……sounds real racist doesn’t it.

This has gotten ridiculous. Freedom of speech is what we as Americans are and SHOULD be raised on. There’s the homosexual community out there doing protest and what not and nothing is said to them..why? because its freedom of speech! EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinions. GET OVER IT. Its not the first time its been said and sure as heck wont be the last!!! WELCOME TO AMERICA ;)

I’m an agnostic liberal, but to clearly misinterpret what Phil said is vile. You’ve probably never watched the show, but by god you’ll scream about a guy stating his beliefs. They’re his beliefs!
