I support this guys right to put up a sign supporting bigotry. I also support the duck dynasty group's right to be bigots within the confines of our laws And I support A&E's right to not be represented in their programming by people who spew hate speach.
And before all of you go all "First Amendment" on us, please remember that the first amendment:
"Prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances." Period.

It is not relevant in any way to what spews from the mouths of actors on a TV show. And actors they are make no mistake. He is free to say it, they are free to fire him for it. He is not constitutionally protected to be on TV. I would never watch Duck Dynasty since it is yet another example of the dumbing down of America. However, if A&E changes its mind and keeps these folks on TV, go for it. Anyone who doesn't like it can not tune to that channel. Better yet, try turning the whole thing off and reading a book.

Correct, now read what he said.

I did. It appears to be he is obstinately devoted to his own opinion. A bigot and a homophobe. I am certain he lacks a fundamental respect for women and anyone outside of his little world. And he is an idiot to boot. Last time I checked an interest in the same sex has no correlation to bestiality in any way shape or form.

All that said, he can say what he wants and A&E can fire him for saying it. Plain and simple. Vote with your remote and stop watching A&E if you don't like it. Express your opinion and I will express mine.
Keep on watching Duck Dynasty whatever channel it lands on, and buying their cheap chinese made redneck crap, and keep making them rich while making yourself look ignorant. It is beyond me why anyone would buy into the marketing scheme that is their core, but go for it if you want. I am perfectly happy to watch you do it.

I don't think this show is making them rich, they already have plenty if money from their business.

You may not like what he says, but he doesn't sound like a bigot or homophobe. You really need to understand what a bigot and homophobe really are and not spout off about things you are under informed about.

Why on earth would you care what anyone does in their bedroom or feel you have the right to judge what others do in their lives. No, you don't have to like it, but you have no business telling others they have to live like you. MYOB.

I was waiting for the Highland Racists to start participating! It was only a matter of waiting.
Time for me to bow out of the conversation. Nothing intelligent will be posted or if it is we will have to weed through the foulness and name calling. Thanks Sigh for a discussion with some reason involved even if we disagree.

Who cares about what some redneck, who was chosen to do a reality show based on the fact that he looks like an idiot, says?

He has the same education level as these albino trolls.

Does not make my point any less valid. Stop giving that low IQ redneck so much attention.

I don't understand why the word redneck gets thrown around in such a negative way :(

I commend Phil for standing his ground on his beliefs, but it was very homophobic. A&E had no choice but to let him go. Just more "good Christian people" bashing the gays.

He's free to say what he feels as you're doing. We can both agree on that, correct?

So what is he supposed to do when the bible vehemently states that homosexuality and those who engage in it will face His wrath?

I respect his beliefs, but I thinka certain amount of responsibly comes with being a public figure. I think the guys have it bad enough already without someone like Phil coming out and saying they're wrong to do what they do.
What I don't understand is why religious fanatics think it's their personal responsibility to "save" everyone.
