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

    I stand with Phil and we believe in what the Bible teaches.

    This is free speech at its finest. Jesse Jackson is the ultimate racist. Look at how he supported the striper in Durham, NC who alleged that she was raped by the duke lacrosse players. After it came to light that the striper was a liar, Jesse Jackson still supported her. His hatred for whites is insane. As far as the gay and lesbian community is concerned, they have practiced freedom of speech for years, why waste their resources worrying about one mans voice?

    I find it sad the heteraphobic attitude of the network management throiughout the industry. He is entitled to his views, and should be able to express them freely. It’s very disturbing that the US media tries to influence the masses to think that natural man-women relations are not appropriate, and only un-natural same sex relations are the norm. It will be the downfall of our great country if we don’t change course and respect the laws of nature.

    I support Phil and his beliefs but more than that I believe he along with every person has the right to their own opinion and should be able to express those opinions without bias from anyone, including the media. I do not treat people differently just because I don’t believe all of the same things in the same way, that is what makes us all unique. But I also don’t have to agree with what they do either. You live your life, I will live mine and hopefully when we are together we can share or at least put our differences aside while enjoying each others company.

    If you don’t support Phil, I won’t support you.

    I am a Christian and believe in the Bible, The Word of God. If they don’t like what the Bible says about homosexuality, that’s too bad. If they would just understand that it’s something to resist, and they can change, but the world wants to dumb them down. So sad. God bless!

    Bad move A&E. Phil Robertson was only sharing his personal and religious beliefs. He doesn’t hate or discriminate against homosexuals, he simply doesn’t agree with the lifestyle. Seems to me like A&E has made a decision to discriminate against white Christian males.
