Tony Perkins Celebrates

“The attacks on Phil Robertson revealed to the American people that the push to redefine marriage is less about the marriage altar than it is fundamentally altering America’s moral, political and cultural landscape. A&E Network’s reversal in the face of backlash is quite telling to the American people who are growing tired of GLAAD and cultural elites who want to …

A&E Caves On Phil Robertson

Bristol Palin: Leave Phil Robertson Alone

“Everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs. I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style. This flies in the face of what makes America great – people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life. Everyone needs to …

HomoQuotable – Michelangelo Signorile

“The Duck Dynasty controversy has become so ugly so fast. It’s time to just call it what it is. Religious zealots like Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson are using the Bible to defame a group of people and excuse horrible actions against that group in the name of their Bible, refusing responsibility for the hate their words condone and inspire. …

Quote Of The Day – Matt Taibbi

“Conservatives have always had trouble grasping the difference between public censorship and private enterprise. With a few exceptions, like whistleblower laws and National Labor Relations Board protections against being fired for off-site discussions about work conditions (exceptions that, in almost every case, conservatives bitterly opposed), there is no legal or constitutional right to free speech on private property. You can …

Jon Stewart Vs Fox News On Duck Flap

Another recap from Mediaite: The Daily Show host took the opportunity to deliver a scathing take down of the “free speech absolutists” at Fox News. “Look, I think what the guy said is ignorant,” Stewart said, “but I also have an inclination to support a world where saying ignorant shit on television doesn’t get you kicked off that medium.” But …

Bill O’Reilly: Robertson Shouldn’t Judge

Mediaite recaps last night’s show: More than 24 hours after the news broke that A&E was suspending Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson over comments he made about homosexual sex, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly finally weighed in with his opinion on the matter. But unlike some other conservative commentators who defended Robertson, O’Reilly surprised his guest Laura Ingraham by going the …

Robertson Family: We All Might Quit

From a statement released last night by the entire cast of Duck Dynasty: 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 …

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“Robertson is a character in a reality show. He’s not a spokesman for A&E any more than some soul-sucking social x-ray from the Real Housewives series is a spokeswoman for Bravo. Is he being fired for being out of character? Nah. He’s being fired for staying in character – a character A&E have nurtured and promoted and benefited from. Turning …

Tony Perkins Defends Phil Robertson

“A&E’s suspension of Phil Robertson shows Hollywood wants to avoid reality. The reality is that the Robertson family are Bible-believing Christians who don’t cherry pick what the Bible teaches. Phil Robertson has been targeted simply because he expressed his religious beliefs but there is a clear double standard that is being applied. Nothing was done when homosexual activist Dan Savage …

Ted Cruz Defends Phil Robertson

“The reason that so many Americans love Duck Dynasty is because it represents the America usually ignored or mocked by liberal elites: a family that loves and cares for each other, believes in God, and speaks openly about their faith. If you believe in free speech or religious liberty, you should be deeply dismayed over the treatment of Phil Robertson. …

Quote Of The Day – John Nolte

“Make no mistake about the anti-Christian leftists in Hollywood, the mainstream media, and GLAAD; the goal here is to put on a bitter Show Trial until A&E caves even further and yanks ‘Duck Dynasty’ off the air. The problem for A&E and the political left, though, is that in today’s world, the boys of ‘Duck Dynasty’ hold all the cards. …

CNN’s Don Lemon Defends Phil Robertson

Via Josh Feldman: GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz denounced Robertson’s remarks and said it’s offensive for him to profess to speak on behalf of all Christians. Morgan found the homosexuality comments, as well as comments that black people were “happy” in pre-civil rights Louisiana, to be “pretty outrageous on any level.” Lemon agreed, but was less hesitant than Morgan to call …

NOM Launches Duck Dynasty Petition, Demands Reinstatement Of Phil Robertson

Reality television is about as far-flung from the mission of NOM as it can get, but that hasn’t stopped them from opportunistically jumping on the outrage train. Hate group leader Brian Brown writes: Do we want to live in a country where we cannot express something we believe so sincerely and feel so strongly without fear of reprisals, bullying, and …

Fox Panel: Outrage About Phil Robertson

Mediaite recaps: After showing a statement from Robertson regarding his homophobic remarks, Kelly turned to the panel, and right off the bat Bernard Whitman condemned Robertson’s “disgusting,” “really reprehensible” remarks and said he should get the boot. Arthur Aidala and Monica Crowley vehemently disagreed, and all three got in a heated back-and-forth about the free speech issues here. Aidala cried, …
