Duck Dynasty Family Refusing To Do Show Without Phil, After Racist & Homophobic Comments!

duck dynasty arm fold

Is this the end of Duck Dynasty?!

The Robertson family, who star in the top rated A&E reality series, are telling the network that if they suspend Phil, they can kiss their hit show goodbye!

‘Cause this flock ain’t doing the show without him!

Phil Robertson was suspended by A&E this week following remarks he made calling homosexuality a “sin” and also suggesting black people were happier before the Civil Rights Movement.

According to Phil and his family of quackers, those are just his religious beliefs!

In a statement released by the Robertsons, they’re giving their network an ultimatum now: bring Phil back or NONE of them are doing the show!

They announced:

“[We] have spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart' and 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right. We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of 'Duck Dynasty.'"

K. Couple of things…

Phil wasn’t quoting scripture. Nowhere in the Bible does it discuss how much better vaginas are over anuses. So please, don’t try and write this off as a religious freedom.

And yes, Phil’s right to freedom of speech is a Constitutionally protected civil liberty. But under United States labor laws, A&E has every right to terminate an employee who discriminates against another person or goes against their organization’s values.

He was suspended. Not thrown in jail.

THAT is freedom of speech. Say whatever you want but understand, there are often times consequences for distasteful comments.

Let’s see how long this holdout lasts!

    I didn't think his original comment was that bad, but I have to roll my eyes when they start shoving the bible in our faces as their excuse. Really? His crude comparison of vagina and man anus is 'expressing his faith'? Really?

    Re: michellt – If A&E knew this all along and edited him, I'm sure they also gave him warnings about not saying stupid shit on camera because he can get in trouble. Do you really think a huge company like that would take the risk of sending this man with his big old hairy mouth around to do interviews while knowing he's a racist, religious extremist? Sounds super implausible to me.

    Duck Dynasty has made millions of dollars on A&E. They should shop their show around and make another station very rich, fuck A&E. Notice all these news papers and articles about it left out what the rest of what he said. Which was on the lines of,I love all man and think every person should not be judged.

  26. cricketsoks says – reply to this


    26

    The man has a right to his opinion and he was being respectful about it. It didn't put a bad light on A&E but the fact they suspended him made them (the network) look bad. People need to calm down. I don't know one person who is offended by what he said, not even friends who are gay. The only person who I know is offended is Perez. Everyone loves Phil, the show wont be the same without him so I'm glad his family is sticking behind him. What other shows can we watch on A&E….? exactly. Love this family and I'm an atheist who supports gay rights. You just have to get over the fact lots of people have different beliefs and it's impossible to change the minds of older generations. Just because they think like this doesn't mean their grand kids do. My Grandma is JUST like Phil when it comes to religion and not understanding gay people, but it doesn't mean I'm anything like her just because we are family.



  27. 27

    I hate that they're trying to hide behind their religion and acting like he's being punsihed for daring to be Christian. That's not what this is about. Because what he said wasn't his religious views. Had he just simply said that his religious beliefs teach that it's a sin but it also teaches to love and forgive sinners we wouldn't be having this conversation. However…he had to bring beastiality into it. And then act like the very idea of anal sex is disgusting. And then suggested African Americans were happier before civil rights because the ones he knew seemed happy. Of course he got suspended. It's not an issue of Freedom of Speech…he's allowed to say anything he wants but if he signed in his contract anything about what he was allowed to say when promoting the show, they could easily fire him for preach of contract. Because religions had NOTHING to do with what he said. Following up hate speech with a Scripture quote doesn't make it suddenly okay.

    Another crappy reality TV show bites the dust, another 1,000,000 to go! They'll find some other family to exploit for TV in about 2 minutes.

    If your faith requires to you say something is wrong, fine. But don't use your faith to liken a group of people consentually having sex with one another, to being one step from having sex with animals. Sorry, but if your faith is all about loving thy neighbour then perhaps you should actually utilize those words and love EVERYONE and not just the ones you deem to be Christian enough.

    That's my biggest issue with religious zealots, they tend to cherry pick items from their religious scripture, they don't really understand what they're reading, and then they claim to be speaking for God. Give me a break.

    Re: HMMMM – Umm, that's exactly what happened? Not many people are "whining", all that happened was he was removed from a show. Free speech is your right, but there are repercussions. Just like if you stood up and said some racially idiotic things at work, you'd get fired. Same thing.

    Honestly, I am on Phil's side.I like gays and am a friends of gays and lesbians. That being said being gay is a sin. I don't get why gay's are like trying to push their life styles on us. Imagine if the role was reversed. If everyone straight tried to push it on gay's. I truly believe men and woman are meant for each other. They are supposed to reproduce. How can you if you are intimate with your same gender. All of you people who are saying that he is wrong are the wrong ones. Being straight is the norm not being gay. Phil is entitled to his own opinion. So is the rest of our society. You can't force us to accept you if we don't want to. I am not saying I don't like you if you are gay. However, it is a sin and in the bible it is a horrible thing to be gay. However, you were accepted by the lord. We don't have to. I feel really bad for Phil honestly. He said nothing wrong. To straight people it is the truth but to gay people it is a sin to judge you. Give me a break. I hope Phil gets back on his televison. show.

    Re: rosebud99

    What was so wrong with the comment he said about him not understanding why gay men prefer the anus over the vagina?!?! Don't gay men see the vagina as not sexually attractive?!?!? What is wrong with people talking about their beliefs and making references to the Bible?!?!?! He has a strong faith and there is nothing wrong with trying to live your life that God wants you to. If you were raised in a Christian home and attended Sunday school then you know that the Bible is not just some book but God's word. I don't think Phil said anything hateful or disrespectful. I have seen shows where a gay guy will act grossed out by vaginas. Oh thats okay right?!?! If anything I think other people should be censored for their "beliefs" like Kanye. I find it very offense that he calls himself Yeesuz and a god. Or that it's acceptable that Kim Kardashian makes a sex tape and she's famous over it. The United States is quickly losing morality and wholesome values. Our country is going to hell.

    The only distasteful comments are yours Perez. Yes, they are HIS beliefs. They are the majority of this country's beliefs. If you don't like it, too bad for you. You are Heterophobic and racist! You call people names all the time. He understands the consequences, he does not care! Why should he? He doesn't need that show. Just because you are ashamed of yourself you shouldn't take it out on others. If you want to be gay, be gay. Keep it to yourself. Most decent people don't run around talking about who they are screwing. Enough with this stupid homophobic ranting from all of you. The bottom line is most Christians believe being gay is a sin. You are a disgusting pig Perez. You have no class and you can't shut up about your favorite word "homophobic". That has got to be the stupidest word EVER. NO ONE CARES! Only guys like you who are actually taking it up the a$$ care. You are ashamed of yourself - that is on you. Keep your mouth shut about the type of sex you like.

    36

    He didn't compare it to bestiality. He said that acting on homosexuality is a sin just like adultery and bestiality are sins. Why is everyone offended when it is the truth. God probably sees all three as being equally wrong. Just like abortion. It says that in the bible. He did not say anything hateful. In the bible it says its okay for you to be a homosexual but not act on it.



  37. 37

    Re: annoyed – And the bible also says that God forgives all right? hmmm, then maybe you guys should just relax and let the LBGT community do what they want, and explain to them that they will have to ask for forgiveness before they die so they can go to heaven. Wouldn't that be more accurate than calling them perverted, immoral and disgusting? (AS Phil has in previous videos)

    This whole incident has woken the sleeping giant, moral majority, who has been so stodgy and quiet but now have sit up and taken noticed. CNN can't believe the backlash (quite frankly I think it's even stumping ol' Perez). But we're out there and too silent…to a fault.



  39. 39

    Re: annoyed – I didn't see anything wrong with his original comment. To me it was just an opinion - like if I said I don't know how anyone could prefer vanilla to chocolate - no big deal. But when they pull the religion card it just gets stupid. I find it hypocritical when people lean on one obscure old testament passage, but choose to ignore so many others.

    Re: justtospeakthetruth

    Yes the Bible does talk about forgiveness but that's when you're truly sorry for your sins. When you ask God for forgiveness is because you have accepted what you did as wrong and you whole heartily will never try to do it again. It's like saying oh forgive someone who murdered someone or who cheated on their spouse but they keep doing it. God will probably forgive those who have committed any kind of sin. I don't think he was being judgmental. He just doesn't find the anus to be attractive like the vagina and it's against his beliefs.

    Americas problem is that no one knows how to accept others opinions and ways. It's not your business so stay out of it! If he wants to hate certain people who the fuck cares. I obviously don't. Seriously people should focus more on important things than what other people care about. He has all the right to say whatever he wants and I am not offended at all. I'm cuban, gay and proud. If i have no problem no one else should either end of story. He did nothing wrong. The reason racism and all this bullshit exist is because people like all of you can't accept the way other people feel and let it be. It's a waste of time.

    What did he say that was so hateful?!!?!?! And actually I live in this country so it is my business what goes on. That's another thing that what is wrong with this world. People think that what goes on doesn't affect you. Actually it does. Especially our youth. Now and days they learn more from the media than they do from their own parents. What are we teaching younger generations?!?! What he said was not racists or hateful.

    Again, Perez with the racist and homophobic comments. Get over it. Unlike, most reality TV stars that are broke asses and start making money as a result of the show. Duck Dynasty is not that one, they already had money millions in fact. They will stand tall with Phil and they will not bend to A&E or any other bullshit rights activist group (cry babies). Who wants to crucify at the stake anyone who disagrees. In the long run A&E will be the big loser money wise $$$. The Robertson family does not need more money. Duck Dynasty will go to another cable network with their 14 million viewers. Perez - you should not perpetuate hate. Had your mother stayed in Cuba you would not have had the freedoms you enjoy today. You have these freedoms thanks to the sacrifices that our founding fathers fought for. We are free to say what we want.

    If the man prefers vagina over anus that is his right and his right to say so. It is also his right to preach from his Bible. It is an opinion he used no homphobic slurs. Big deal. he believes what he believes. leave him alone. you are exercising your right to free speech everyday on your blog. I have read you for years and now I don't know if I will anymore. my favorite Uncle is gay and he could care less about all this and wishes they would just shup up he loves the show. If A&E wont let Phil on the show I won't watch any shows A&E airs and I will watch Duck Dynasty on the next cable network they are picked up on.Dont forget to sign the Stand With Phil petition!



  48. 48

    Re: rhonda – Well that was probably the stupidest remark I've read in quite a while. What the fuck does Perez lack of comfort in his own sexualilty have to do with his concern for what this bigot openly expressed in a public setting? There are plenty of reasons to dislike Perez, but this isnt one of them. Phil had the right to speak his mind, and A&E had the right to suspend him from their show.

    Actually it does state homosexuality is a sin, in BOTH CATHOLIC AND CHRISTIAN!

    >Leviticus 18:22 (Whole Chapter)
    “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.

    >Leviticus 20:13 (Whole Chapter)
    “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

    >1 Corinthians 6:9 (Whole Chapter)
    Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality,

    >1 Timothy 1:10 (Whole Chapter)
    The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, [ Or kidnappers.] liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching

    ….Jesus offers forgiveness for all of our sins. i'm glad they actually care what the bible says, next time i encourage you to open up the bible and find the answers yourself…instead of leaning on your own FALSE understanding and acusing someone of saying something wrong WHEN HE IS RIGHT



  50. 50

    I guess Perez's views on all this is that if you want to be able to speak freely about others in a negative way, you should work for yourself so you can't get fired, just like himself. I don't agree with the views of Phil, but I do support his right to say it. Accepting other's views is a two way street. Not just a street that runs in the direction of the liberal way of thinking.



  51. 51

    So tired of this now.

  52. Steener says – reply to this


    52

    You know, Perez, I come to your site EVERY DAY, but today just might be the last day… The things you have said about this man have been more offensive than the comments he stated in the first place. Yes, the comments may have been a bit ignorant (which he admitted he simply did not understand) but he never called any one names or encouraged hate (as you have)… and he DID quote the bible:

    1 Corinthians 6:9: "Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God."

    You just straight up denied the facts!

    And what blows my mind the most, in this sitation as a whole; Why would anyone ask an elderly southern man what his opinion is if they didn't want to know? I mean, what did they expect him to say?! Seems set up to me…

    Anyway, I rarely watched the show, but I am a Christian and a supporter of my homosexual friends and family. I believe God calls me to love and encourage equality for all mankind-and leave the judging to him. I just wish all people, Christian or not, could just listen to each other peacefully, without judgement.

    I never watched this Duck show, but wanted to see what all the hoopla was about. From the comments, it seems people are about 50/50 on whether he should stay or go. Personally, I lean toward 'live and let live'. With that said, as a black person I think it is shame he thinks we were happier before civils rights. Problematic. The fact that he said that just reveals his sheer ignorance and stupidity more than anything. Do they sell products? Going to find out now so I will make sure I never spend another dime on it. And that folks is how you HANDLE THAT. Next!

    A & E has potentinally created network suicide over this decision. It's not like they knew what this families beliefs were. Their whole show has been based on their families devotion toward God and His word. A&E has no issue exploiting hoarders, toddlers in tiaras and addictions but heaven forbid someone actually speak their opinion { one that wasn't all that surprising since they have been honest about their beliefs from the beginning} then that's gone too far. Oh Please! A&E can't have their cake and eat it too! And the lefties need to realize that just because someone disagrees with your lifestyle doesn't mean they "hate" on anyone. They simply disagree. End of story. Get over yourself.

At the same time I could care less what anyone thinks of my beliefs.

Last year, it was the Chick-Fil-A Chicken being branded as the new saint of Christianity for standing up for all that is Holy Matrimony in the eyes of the Church. These folks want to be on the wrong side of history with their public criticism of homosexuality but cry fowl (pardon the pun) when their own bigotry is examined in a public light. Batter and fry all the nonsense at

    I'm not religious and I do not believe there is a God in the sky who says homosexuality is sin but Phil didn't say homsexuality is a sin. The bible said that. Phil is merely a student of the bible. Re: TruthSpeaker – racist rednecks who adopted a black child? "racist redneck" is a racist stereotype invented by people who claim to hate stereotypes. "saying all blacks are criminals is a racist stereotype OH and all southerners are racist rednecks". Us geniuses live in a world full of low IQ people and they are NEVER consistent with their logic.
    "don't make stereotypes. All southerners are racist". How are they "living like savages"? Thats a racist comment because that implies they are living like tribal people in the jungles.

I don't like the Christian agenda who are out to stop us from saying things like happy holidays. Maybe if all the holidays weren't lumped together, we wouldn't say it. Maybe if you guys would stop whining about it, you'd get better results. You don't use the race card, you use the faith card. Stop trying to preach your Bible because I think in there, it says God will come to judge the living and the dead. That's you bub.

    Re: fid – If the united state government truly believed in the tenants that it espouses like "freedom of speech" (a freedom the Government claims our soldiers fight and die for)… it would make laws protecting americans from being fired from their jobs for expression their freedom of speech. The government is asleep at the wheel (as usual). 1000's of americans died in wars so that phil can lose his job for expressing his freedom of speech? What a waste of american lives. I, as an employer, would NEVER fire someone for expressing their opinion outside of work. My dad and I have very strict "what employees do off the clock, is their business." employer ethics. My parents employ menial labor types who often get arrested for crimes (menial laborers are more likely to be arrested for stuff) but my parents always stood behind those suspects "they are innocent until PROVEN guilty" until proven guilty. Core American values we claim to wage war for.

    Re: eczentric – Everybody knows that black americans have extremely high violence and homicide rates (higher than all other minorities TOTALED). Thats a statistically proven fact. But why do they? According to black leaders and black social workers, the high black homicide/violence rate is the result of the black youth being unhappy and disenfranchised. That implies, to those of us with genius IQ's, that the infinitely LOWER crime and homicide rates of the blacks of the 1920's (early times) is the result of their being happier. Thats what logic suggests to people with high IQ's. Phil most likely has a genius IQ (or the potential for that IQ) as he is an inventor and his IQ led him down the same path of logic mine led me down. But saying they were happier does NOT mean "they shouldnt have civil rights". But black americans are happier than black africans. Black governments in africa do not give blacks civil rights or freedom of speech in most countries over there. Black americans should value freedom of speech more than anyone. They wouldnt have that in, say, uganda (a country that only CLAIMS to give freedom of speech but still has journalists living in fear).

    Fact of the matter is, not only is freedom of speech being suppressed/oppressed but freedom of religion is as well. If you're overly religious, you're taught that homosexuality is a sin. It's nice that gays think they are special to the point they can overthrow or change religion all of a sudden because it states things differently than what they believe.

    Someone asked an old, redneck, overly religious person about gay marriage.,.WHAT…IN..THE..FU#$..DO..YOU..THINK he would say? People are morons.

    I say we censor people who are offended by offensive people because the offended are being offensive when they call for censorship. Censorship is bad politics. Down with stupid laws because some moron took offense to something stupid.

    He may be on t.v., but Phil Robertson is 67 years old and lives out in the boonies, and hunts and fishes, loves his family, and believes what he was raised to believe. I had a couple of older relatives who said (to my generation) unbelievable eye rolling sh*t, but we still had them over for Christmas dinner. We didn't crucify them over dinner, and one came around with some conversations, and the other died.

    Re: Fahrenheit451 – It doesn't matter though. The second someone gay isn't happy the straight pays for it. It's never vice versa. As a said being straight is the norm and if someone doesn't want to be gay or condones being gay so be it. He was asked a question and he spoke what he believed was the truth, You guys always freak out when someone states there opinion. Imagine if the roles were reversed how would you like it then…bub

    Gays bitch so much about what others say about them, but they are so much more hateful and hurtful to each other than anything this man on TV has ever done or said about them. I have heard more anti-gay and racist remarks and witnessed more bullying from within the gay community then I have ever outside the gay community, and I spend a considerable amount of time around both. I guess everyone wants to show their faux outrage in order to make themselves look like they're some sort of political activist, even when they're not any other time when their activism is really needed for things much more important than what some old man thinks.

    We live in a society where we have taken these "ordinary" people and made them sideshow freaks for our entertainment. That's part of the whole reality TV culture, to watch these crazy people do crazy shit. regardless of whether it's really "real." So why should we get offended when these crazy people say crazy shit in public as well? These people are made into instant celebrities without ever learning proper etiquette or learning to filter what they say. Many of them are just acting on the reality TV persona that's been created for them and viewed by the public. So if you're going to sit there and fulfill your voyeuristic tendencies & sit there and watch this hillbilly show, then you really don't have the right to be "offended" when these hillbillies say hillbilly shit.

    Re: @v@ – His beliefs aren't "Old fashion" though. There are millions of younger people my age and younger with the same beliefs (not me though. others). I would bet gays are the victims of hate crimes more often in the cities than in the "boonies". Every news story i've read in recent times regarding a hate crime against gays was committed by a young urban "blue state" person not an older boondocks person. I just saw a picket sign on the net of a young black guy in africa saying gays should die (This was a kenyan man supporting the Kenyan governments ban on homosexuality). Its easy to shrug things off as being just "old fashion" but it aint old-fashion. The only difference between older people and younger people is the older people were raised in an era that wasnt politically correct. They were more free to speak their actual minds while my generation has a red S&M gag ball in our mouths.

    This is being blown way out of proportions. It's absolutely ridiculous. Phil has the right to say whatever the fuck he wants to say! If he wants to spread his faith HE CAN! It doesn't mean you have to listen. I personally am friends with several gay people, and sure they don't like it when people make crude remarks over them, but they know that people have the right to say what they want. The one thing I hate the most about these jackass left wing people is they say that people have the right to be who they are, but once someone says something that disagrees with them then they're a bad person. They're a bunch of idiot hypocrites trying to oppress Christians. Yes, there are bad Christians, but the majority of them are great people. That's like saying that all Muslims are terrorists or that all Atheists are crazy ass devil worshippers. Perez, I'm not surprised you would respond this way, but it sure is immature. Everyone needs to get a life, and stop judging others.

    Since when was it said in the bible that it was ok to degrade someone because of the color of their skin. If people want to be ignorant than so be it but don't play the religious card to cover their ass when they get caught out.
    These people and others like them need a wake up call to the modern world and see that things change and if they have these narrow minded beliefs then they should just learn to keep it within the family.
    Also good riddance to Duck Dynasty with their stupidity and narrow mindedness. The money should be spent on something else which is better.

    All you who wanna say what the Bible does and Does not say had better go do some research before you run your mouths. And stop your belly aching over someone quoting bible and saying what they believe. the gays and lesbians are being way more intolerant and discriminating aginst Us Born Again Christians than we are of them. Like Phil says we are to love our neighbour and I can promise you he would try and help anyone of you out and show you from the Bible where it is wrong to live a gay and lebian and immoral lifestyle and show you how it is a sin against God. In the Bible it tells us we are to keep away from all appearances of evil that goes for anything right from a big party of drinking right up to those living a sinful life style but we are to still love the person. Have a look on farms you don't find two mares that can make a stallion or two bulls that can make a cow or find two roosters walking arm in arm or for you critics wing in wing. Phil and his family are God Fearing Loving People. They don't hate anyone they hate their actions a huge difference. So any of you that want to start referring to what the Bible does and does not say bring it on. And those of you who want to keep saying stuff and don't want to do the research about it it would be for one reason….. cause you know your wrong and don't want to be proven wrong. there is so much in the Bible no one on earth will ever know everything in it regardless of who they are

    Re: fid – Ok for starters being gay and lesbian is a sin secondly you don't have to love their sin to love your neighbour, you wanna start saying what is write and wrong you better go read the Bible for yourself. God created Adam and Eve man and Woman. if a male and male or female and female was ok and perfectly normal than go find me any two same sex animals anywhere that has not had reproductive surgery of any kind that can reproduce. Good luck to ya it ani't gonna happen WHY? because it is wrong of course and not the way God meant it to be thus he created man and woman woman being made from mans side Eve was formed from Adams rib……… So before you start running your mouth be sure you know what your talking about

    Re: Peach314 – The Bible Clearly tells who will go to heaven and who won't That is anyone that doesn't believe there is a God and that he sent his only son to die on the cross and shed his blood and rose again the 3rd day and that he done this for ALL who will recive him and realize they are a sinner and ask for his forgiveness and that includes everything from lying to being gay or lesbian to murder we are all sinners. and if we ask his forgiveness and give our lives over to him and live for him like Phil does and always will then he will save us from our sins and take us home to heaven to live eternally when he chooses. Even after all that we still make mistakes and aren't perfect and sin but we just keep praying and confessing those sins we can never lose that salvation when we finally admit and believe we are sinnerst salvation is forever. but we still need to live his ways according to the Bible that means yes not being gay or lesbian and living in known sins but PRAISE GOD IT IS SO WORTH IT ESPECIALLY WHEN WE GET TO SEE HIS FACE IN HEAVEN!!!!

    They aren't saying it's against the constitution to fire them, they are only saying they will not work if they can't have Phil with them.

    It seems to me like the gay community has too much power over anything that even hints at opposing them (this CLEARLY wasn't only a hint…I disagreed with his crude description and insults, and most religious people don't have that mentality I'm sure (I don't, but I am angry at the gay community for attacking religion all the time)).

    Re: annoyed – So…you have gay friends but you believe they are sinners (and we know all sinners are going to burn in hell, right? But the Christians don't say that out loud ;) I feel sorry for your friends. Your comment is extremely narrow-minded. Gay people aren't trying to push their beliefs on people; they want equal rights. What if someone said you can't marry the person you love and restricted your rights and treated you like shit? Why should we treat them like lesser human beings? Because of the Bible? The only thing I see from Christians now a days is the spread of judgment and hatred, using the Bible as a shield. I would think THAT is a sin.

    They meant the bible scripture from Corinthians that he quoted in the interview? Did you read the whole article or are just writing what you are hearing. I hope to God, you don't call yourself a journalist because you suck at research. Okay first of all I'm sure A&E knew very well where Phil stood on this issue before they decided to create this reality show. 2nd of all, You do know that the Gif you have posted is not Phil, right? It's Si. 3rd of all nothing he said was really raciest. He only said what he saw with his eyes. Why couldn't African Americans have a good positive attitude back then even through hard times. He said he was referred as "white trash"….maybe he admired their Godly happiness. Stop throwing around words and quotes just so it will fit into your views. We live in a way overly sensitive Nation.
