When the add came on TV about this movie, the statement, “A story about Man vs Man”, pretty much summed it up for me that it was all Hollywood, and not much Bible. Like Justin, I feel much of what we see today, only mocks God, but this is to be expected since we are in the closing chapter of this world as we know. With the prospects of end times, I am excited, but very concerned/burdened, for those who are without “Christ”.
Pretty much the influence of Hollywood would cut out events the book mentions by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Much was done when Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments” produced in Hollywood in 1956, there were many deviations away from the Bible to create what Hollywood deemed appropriate. The movie to me was very slow to get going, but there were scenes towards the end which seemed to pick things up a bit. I feel there could have been more emphasis towards events of the world leading up to the rapture, and felt the rapture of the mother in the shower was a little off, since women do not wear their jewelry taking a shower. Some areas could have been thought out better, with more impressive scenes. The key is to remember, no one knows the hour this event will take place, but God… Matthew 24:36.
Restore: Phil Robertson and A&E quit being a horses behind!
PETITION TO THE A&E NETWORK DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE REINSTATEMENT OF DUCK DYNASTY’S PHIL ROBERTSON — #ISTANDWITHPHILGOAL: 265,763 signatures
Dear A&E Network,
I am writing to you regarding your network's intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment of Mr. Phil Robertson, star of A&E's #1 hit show, Duck Dynasty.
Mr. Robertson’s comments in GQ Magazine are simply reflective of a Biblical view of sexuality, marriage, and family – a view that has stood the test of time for thousands of years and continues to be held by the majority of Americans and today’s world as a whole.
Many members of the LGBT community may not agree with this view, but the notion that a free-thinking American should be discriminated against simply for expressing a perspective that is in conflict with another is patently un-American and flies in the face of true tolerance and civility. A&E's position, which in your own words is “championing” the gay and lesbian community — which I believe you have the freedom to do — excludes the views of Faith Driven Consumers and effectively censors a legitimate viewpoint held by the majority of Americans.
As a Faith Driven Consumer, I am signing this petition to demand that my views be treated with equality and respect in America’s rich rainbow of diversity.
I am asking your network to immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson to Duck Dynasty, and to formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week, stand by him, and share his worldview. While the LGBT community may be offended by his opposing viewpoint, your rash, discriminatory, and unfair treatment toward Mr. Robertson — a recognized symbol of the faith community — is a slap in the face to Faith Driven Consumers and everyday Americans alike.
There are 46 million Faith Driven Consumers in America today who spend 1.75 trillion dollars annually. Should you refuse to equally respect and welcome our legitimately held views, we will gladly stop watching this and all other A&E programming and turn to any reformulation of Duck Dynasty on another network – while simultaneously supporting brands that stand with the show and the Robertson family.
John Q. Public
