“The petition urging A&E to restore the star of its popular Duck Dynasty show to his position has inched ever closer to its goal.

By Thursday morning, a week after his suspension, more than 240,000 people had signed a petition circulated by Faith Driven Consumer, fewer than 10,000 shy of its goal, chiding A&E for its "intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment" of the Duck Dynasty star.”
