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 strongly agree with Phil. I love people as Jesus would. That is stated in the Bible “love your neighbor as you would yourself”. Phil executed his right of freedom of speech,which was fought for by our ancesters. The people who doesn’t like it have freedom not watch his show.

    I love Phil and the hole family from Duck Dynasty! I understand what he’s saying and why. I don’t mind gay people at all but can see why someone with Phil’s upbringing and way of thinking would say that. I really don’t even think what he said is that bad.

    Sin is sin! No amount of justifying changes this fact. GOD never changes and Hallelujah HE is not a man that He should lie! GOD loves sinners but hates sin. We need to pray for eyes to be opened and for everyone to come to the saving knowledge of JESUS CHRIST!

    Phil was just expressing the bible’s views and his personal beliefs on the subject, he answered a question from his morals, he should not be punished for this, this is absurd that someone like me going to defend someones freedom of speech and now hes being punished for his freedom is a slap across my face, Phil, i will back you up 100%
