GLAAD is exactly right. Duck Dynasty is no doubt A&E's biggest cash cow. Not only is the show a huge hit, you can't walk into a department store these days without seeing some Duck Dynasty merchandise, like baseball hats or sunglasses. To A&E, it's all about $$$$$$$$$$ On the other hand, why should gays even CARE what a long bearded dumb redneck like Phil Robertson has to say? He's a hero to only to ignorant bigots who share his views.

Exactly! The majority of their income is derived from the normal 98% of the population so why should they bend over to please a tiny minority?

Millions stand with Phil. That is why GLADD is so angry, and A&E caved on his free speech issue. He will be on T V long after GLADD finds something else to whine about. It has to gall the alternative livers that that family gets so much attention, and they have to whine for any attention at all.

For the 1000th time.

This is not, and never was, a free speech issue.,

The "whining" of gay people has led to state after state and country after country legalizing gay marriage, gays in the military, and gaining other civil rights we deserve. We are winning. So feel free to brag about Phil Robertson being back on Duck Dynasty.....you have won this battle, but we will win the war.

The "dumb redneck" has a master's degree in education and heads up a $400 million per year business. Tell us about you and how you're smarter and more successful.

I'm not a narrow minded bigot like you and the man you're defending....that's a HUGE start. Of course, you can rely on a bigot defending another one.

Just wait and see, Phil or someone in that clan is going to "duck up", and it will be a biblically epic!

The media is full of brainless, talentless hacks that got famous for being the right place at the right time.

I'm also not terribly impressed by a masters in education.

GLAAD should quit worrying about Phil Robertson and start worry about how Rachel Maddow makes lesbians look bad. That's 1 dumb bitch!!!!! Free speech is dead in this country unless your a democrat or work on msnbc!!!

Free speech is alive and well, the government had nothing to do with this.

This is not a free speech issue.

I've seen idiots on the left and the right get this totally wrong...

I bet Phil would have a different take on free speech then the GLADD people.

Personally, I place absolutely no importance on what either GLAAD or Phil has to say.
