His 2009 you tube video where he suggests older men should marry 15 or 16 year old girls. Would you want him around your 15year old daughter?

I think they 'threw' her under the bus and she is now 'through' at Food Network.
In the end it comes down to money. Paula Deen obviously wasn't as valuable to Food Network as Duck Dynasty is to A&E. There wasn't the viewer(consumer)backlash about Paula Deen that there was about Phil Robertson. If there were then Paula Deen would still be on Food Network.
The other thing is that using racial slurs is a far cry from standing up for religious beliefs in the eyes of most people. Paula Deen's contract with Food Network was not renewed because she admitted in a deposition, under oath, that she had in the past used racial slurs.
Tell me one person that has not used a racial slur. Now it is the Oneida Indians. Next it will be the dolphins in the ocean. For years there has been jokes about Polish people, Irish, Italians but I guess that is alright. It's just not fair.

You completely missed the point and you make no sense. You should Google 'strawman'. The definition describes your argument.

Phil Robertson spoke his opinion based on his life experience and religious beliefs.
Paula Deen testified under oath that she had in the past used racial slurs.

The people who spend the money to support A&E made their opinion known in sufficient numbers to get A&E to reverse their decision.

You like Paula Deen. Not enough people who spend the money to support Food Network agree with you. If they did Paula Deen would still be on Food Network.

It has absolutely nothing to do with how many people use racial slurs. And yes, there are people who have never used racial slurs.
