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

    You are pressing all of us into an increasingly wicked and degenerate life style and corrupt society - get with it and take a positive stand for us all! As a starter, you win, be wise to reinstate Phil Robertson into your programing! Study the Bible, it Is God’s History for all time! God loves you as I do, but we hate the sin that is increasingly destroying our society. Be blessed,-not condemned Jesus is God’s answer for mankind — HE is my Savior, Lord and friend (for over 83 of my 92 years! He has never failed me — He has promised to NEVER LEAVE ME OR FORSAKE ME! Don’t leave this planet without JESUS - He wants to be your guide, SAVIOR and Lord! AMAZINFLY, HE CALLS US FRIEND! Jim Ford 714-624-3547

    My entire family will stop watching A & E unless Phil Robertson continues to act for A & E. We tell all of our friends our opinion and they agree to do the same.
