I've done a lot of thinking about this. The bible tells us that in the last days the followers of Christ will suffer and be persecuted. Could this be the beginning of the end? A&E is not the only group or entity that has done everything it can to eliminate or harm Christianity.
Where are the nativity scenes showing baby Jesus in the stable? Gone because some group protested or threatened to sue. Why don't radio stations play the sacred Christmas Carols that celebrate the birth of our savior? Gone and replaced by Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls because radio stations say their listeners aren't all Christian and might be offended. The list goes on....
The latest effort to slam Christ and Christmas comes form so called "educated Historians" who come on TV and try to prove the bible wrong and deny Jesus' birth.
Thinking further WHY would A&E even have a show featuring the Robinsons in the first place? The show makes fun of their rural life, their "redneck" way of dressing and living. In other words they have made COMEDY of the Robinson's way of living and appearance. Now, it seems to me, they are laughing and making fun of their Christianity. They are in effect saying:
Robinsons--stupid, rednecks, backwoods, beards, camo, Christian, funny, dumb.
In my way of thinking here the attack on Phil Robinson is really an attack on Christianity.
