What Was Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson Doing When He Was Suspended?

Despite extremists in the LGBT community going full-bore with the character assassination of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, which ultimately led to his suspension, a report out of Louisiana shows a level of humanity one could expect from a deeply faith-driven individual.

Via CBS Houston:

“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson was praying at church Wednesday night for a girl battling cancer as he was being suspended from the show indefinitely following his comments about homosexuality in a GQ interview.

In an interview with CNN, Mike Kellett, senior pastor of White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ, said the patriarch of the Robertson family was leading church members in prayer Wednesday night.

“Phil led us in prayer. There were greater things on our minds than the firestorm of controversy about this article,” Kellett told CNN.

Kellett added that the 67-year-old Robertson appeared calm despite the controversy that was surrounding him.

The ‘controversy’ that led to Robertson’s dismissal?  Stating that a man seemingly should be more attracted to a woman’s body as opposed to another man’s, and to think otherwise is a sin according to his beliefs.

That ‘controversial’ view is held by 45% of the country, as well as 78% of evangelical Christians, of which Robertson identifies as.

So why would comments that half of the country agrees with become controversial?  Why does a network such as A&E go out of their way to cater to the other half of the country exclusively?  Because progreessives in this country have made religion and faith itself a controversy.

Also in Louisiana, Governor Bobby Jindal was taking a stand yesterday for Robertson.

Via Bobby Jindal:

“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV.  In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views.  In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.

Unfortunately Mr. Jindal, the politically correct crowd own this nation right now.  They dictate free speech as they see fit.  We are now run by a nation of Miley Cyrus clones.

    Completely ridiculous how they treated Phil. Grow a pair A&E/ Gay/Les Community, if you don’t like that someone has a different opinion than you, SUCK IT UP!

      Doesn’t that work both ways for ya? Phil should grow a pair, suck it up and accept the consequences of his bigoted opinions.

        Bigoted why because you don’t agree with them? How did Phils comments show “fear, distrust, hatred, contempt, or intolerance”

          Because they are hateful. Please try to read what he said. He is an ignoramus and part of the new idiocracy that threatens America from the right wing.

            maybe you should read what he said. Because I recall him saying that he hated the sin not the sinner. That we are all sinners and he will not judge anyone just as no one should judge him. He said he will go on loving others regaurdless of their choices because thats what God does. Now what part of that is hateful? or did you only just read the part about homosexuality being sin? which by the way is a fact according to his faith, so it still doesnt say he hates anyone but only says the truth which everyone in the freaking world with a brain on their heads should already know since he is a professed christian that lives out that lifestyle on a show watched by milions. Its sad to think that people really didnt already understand his stance on it to begin with. People need to think a little more logically and not be so quick to point fingers at something that had no reason to be blown up the way it is right now.

            Maybe it is YOU who should read for comprehension what he said. he is an unmitigated bigot and deserves all the enmity that comes his way. But he’ll keep on playing rubes like you for a fool as long as you keep making him rich. You don’t understand — one doesn’t get to hate on other people and just say, well that’s what my religion teaches, and then whine and cry when other people call them out on their hate.

            Please show me where he hated on people and said thats his religious teachings. All he did was point out sin, not the sinner. And I would really love to see where you get that he is whining and crying? Did you not even read this article? And you must have a very skewed point of view to think that this family cares about the money they are makeing, because they most certainly dont. If you think otherwise, I would love to see the proof that they are greedy and use the money only for them selves. Good luck with that because I know for a fact that they dont hoard it all to themselves, but I’m open to see what you come up through actuall research rather than spewing out words.

            I guess in your blind sycophancy to your corporate masters, you failed to actually read the article. Hatred seethes from him.

        Apparently you didnt read this article. He doesnt care what the rest of the world thinks, he already accepted the consequences and is happily serving those around him in the light that he spoke in his article (with love).

    I think everyone should have free speach I dont beleave that being gay is ok the Bible tell us its not I think people should stop tring to change God’s laws to make there life easier. But weather your gay or not your still humans. But that does not justify going against god. An our government saying it should be justified us so wrong. Because the laws of the Bible are the real laws so yes I stand behind Phil. AND I’M SHURE GOD DOES TO.

        @Jerald James I can read and understand it regardless of how it’s spelled! The MEANING BEHIND THE WORDS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HOW THEY’RE SPELLED!!!

          I can read it and understand it as well. And I also agree with her post. But all those misspelled words, especially in this day and age of spell-check makes her post look almost stupid.

    I agree with the learn to spell. Your ideas are great Diann..but whether you are doing this on a IPhone, or are just uneducated, it really pays to spell correctly. Your point is lost to so many when you murder the English language as you have done. It is painful to read your post..

      Then perhaps you should be aware that “an” is used in front of a word that begins with a vowel such as “iPhone” rather than “a.”

    It has nothing to do with political correctness. It’s business. The job of a production company is to create a show that is watched by as many people as possible. The more people that watch it, the better. This way they can charge advertisers more. If a person on your show alienates a massive demographic, basically eliminating any chance of them watching this show, then you’ve lost a huge chunk of money. So yes, they fired him. It has nothing to do with his faith. Nobody cares about his faith. It’s about money.

      It will be interesting to see over the coming months whether this turns out to be a good business decision for A&E. The Duck Dynasty brand is likely dead. Will A&E be able to make up for the loss of their top rated show with other programming?

        Duck Dynasty is dead. That happened as soon as the guy said it. As for A&E. I seriously doubt the network will go under for losing one show.

      Homosexuals are not a MASSIVE demographic – as noted in the post just above yours, they’re about 2%. They do seem to have a lot of money behind their agenda, though …

        They also have supporters. People who are not gay, but support their “agenda” of equality.

    From what I read 4% of Americans are gay. Why are we pushing this agenda?

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours today, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the internet shall be much more useful than ever before.

    Right here is the right webpage for everyone who hopes to find
    out about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
    personally will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been
    discussed for decades. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!
