    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    Because Right Is Right

    There is no need to recap things leading up to the A&E debacle with regard to Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan.

    However, since then, and in only a day's time, more people have declared they are standing with Phil on a single Facebook page, than have signed up for Obamacare. Over ONE MILLION likes in 24 hours hardly says this nation is tired of traditional values.

    A&E is perfectly within its right to censure Mr Robertson of course.  They are within their right to stand with the 2% of the population that is disproportionately affected by venereal disease and confusion with our developing youth.  They are perfectly within their right to commit programming suicide to salve the sensibilities of the overly emotional Eloi who base their identities on acts that defy nature's (God's) laws.

    And God bless em for their 'free will.'

    So tonight (December 19, 2013 - 7:13pm) the family Robertson has responded.

    We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.  The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision.  We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.  While some of Phil's unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart" and "Love your neighbor as yourself." Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.  We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.   Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
    To which I have one thing to say.

    I sure feel even better now that I went and spent a few bucks buying their product last night.

    I'll sleep well, knowing I'll help them do the same.

    And the potential fallout . . . (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    . . . continues.  From the desk of Mike Huckabee:

    Cracker Barrel has decided it wanted to be the first big corporate sponsor to distance itself from Phil Robertson and in doing so, it has decided it doesn't want "his kind," in their stores. Well, I'm "his kind," so they won't be seeing me at their tables in the future.

    While pretending to be a place where "country people" can get old fashioned "country cooking," they must not understand that folks like Phil, and he has more followers than GLAAD. They have made their choice. Cracker Barrel didn't mind making money off the Duck Dynasty products, but who did they think was wearing those t-shirts? I've written to Cracker Barrel, not that it will matter to them. I have far more respect for companies that openly support liberal causes and don't give a pretense of being what they aren't. I will do business with them because they are honest about who they are. I can live with that. I have no respect for a company that bows to the slightest pressure from the politically correct.

    I ask Cracker Barrel to clarify exactly what Phil stands for that they wish to be disassociated with? If it's his Christian beliefs that make them uncomfortable, then we all need to know. It would be helpful for Christians everywhere to know so we can make their stores more "comfortable" for the people they think are their constituents. It's obvious they don't want "my kind" in their stores. I'll sure accommodate them!

    Won't be lasting for very luch longer. (none / 0) (#2)

    Cracker Barrel already acknowledged that they screwed up big time.

    A&E for all of their so-called angst and "outrage" over what was said, have inexplicably began running DD marathons.

    Not something you'd expect from someone who was serious about what they said.

    I don't expect Nancy Dubuc to have the integrity to personally acknowledge that she royally screwed up.

    But the signs are pointing to an "agreement" being announced in the coming days.

    In the meantime, make sure that if you do buy something, that it is from the Duck Commander line.

    Some people aren't aware that DD merchandise still goes to fund A&E's bottom line.
