I feel that Phil Robertson's comment about gays was an honest comment and emphasizes what many of us feel about gays. So what if Phil voiced his religious feelings. Why should he, or any of us, be suppressed or bashed by the media or the public for ANY of our feelings? What ever happened to freedom of speech? Religion?
Sponsors didn't like it because it affects their rating profits. MONEY is controlling how much freedom of speech there is in this country.
The show has a strong 'redneck' atmosphere. There are many redneck comments and situations that occur on the show. The actors even mention the word 'redneck'. I haven't heard of any 'redneck' states complaining about it have you?
Sponsors are making huge profits on the show's redneck theme. Think about it!!

I absolutely agree. The gay and lesbian population insists that we be tolerant and accepting of their views, but are totally intolerant of anybody with a different view. What hypocrisy. Also, he didn't use his show to state his opinion, he answered a question from a magazine interviewer. You're right, A&E is caving in to advertising dollars...boycott the station.

We as a society have become so PC that's it's rediculous. It was an interview. Questions were asked to Phil and he answered them with his beliefs and opinions .They were not just random statements he threw out there on his show and he was not preaching his beliefs.They may not be yours or my opinions but they are his and he was asked , not volunteering. It appears in the US now you can not voice your opinions unless they are liberal .He admitted that there were times in his life where he did not live a moral life and he does his best now to be a better husband ans family man. The far left believes that there should be no labels in society yet they'll be the first to throw a label on Robertson. Let's see, redneck, inbred, hick, ignorant, let me know if I left any out.
