There is no need to recap things leading up to the A&E debacle with regard to Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan.
However, since then, and in only a day's time, more people have declared they are standing with Phil on a single Facebook page, than have signed up for Obamacare. Over ONE MILLION likes in 24 hours hardly says this nation is tired of traditional values.
A&E is perfectly within its right to censure Mr Robertson of course. They are within their right to stand with the 2% of the population that is disproportionately affected by venereal disease and confusion with our developing youth. They are perfectly within their right to commit programming suicide to salve the sensibilities of the overly emotional Eloi who base their identities on acts that defy nature's (God's) laws.
So tonight (December 19, 2013 - 7:13pm) the family Robertson has responded.
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has 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. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.To which I have one thing to say.
I sure feel even better now that I went and spent a few bucks buying their product last night.
I'll sleep well, knowing I'll help them do the same.

Or, off buttons?
PINCONNING, MI - Bullies, beware: Your victims no longer are deleting your harassing texts, Tweets and Facebook photos.Rest here if you can stomach it.
Yannow, the longer I see this victimhood nonsense being indoctrinated into our youth, the more I see a society undergoing a transformation much similar to the industrial revolution. One catch though, this new revolution, I'm afraid will lead to an irreversible consequence.
Good luck with that.
