PETITION TO THE A&E NETWORK DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE REINSTATEMENT OF DUCK DYNASTY’S PHIL ROBERTSON — #ISTANDWITHPHIL

IStandWithPh.jpg

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.

Signed,

John Q. Public

    We only have freedom of speech if you say what the liberals want to hear.

    There is a difference between bigotry and racism than expressing your constitutionally protected right of free speech and religious freedom.

    A&E can get off my dish network if they can’t support opinions that differ theirs

    THANK YOU Phil!! For making people realize just how much our freedom of speech (as well as other “freedoms”) are being censored and hindered by the powers that be. BTW, you would have my vote for president as well if you ever consider it :-)

    HE ONLY RESTATED WHAT THE BIBLE CLEARLY TEACHES. NOT HIS OPINION. THE SECOND PART WAS HIS PESDONAL EXPERIENCE, NOT AN OPINION.

    We need more Christians, including myself, to stand-up for their beliefs.

    The biological purpose for man and woman is for the procreation of the species.

    The sociological reason for marriage between man and woman, is for the orderly procreation of the species.

    God’s infinite wisdom demands the combination of both biological and sociological union of man when He said, ‘be fruitful and multiply’.


    Homosexuality negates both the biological, and sociological laws for the orderly procreation of the species, also violating God’s law. The advancement of homosexuality promotes zero population growth, Leading to the extinction of the species. It also has been one of the last accepted practices of many of our great fallen civilizations. The last two that come to mind are the Greeks and the Romans.


    Because if this I stand with Phil 100%
