    What do you all think about Phil Robertson being suspended for his "inflammatory" remarks made in an interview in GQ magazine? A&E suspended him from future episodes of Duck Dynasty.....fair or not?

    Meh......his remarks weren't inflammatory, just his view on subject that don't fall in line with liberal thinking.

    he and the family will pull the plug on the show and say c-ya AE.

    besides the fact, if you ask a deep south god fearing christian questions on gay marriage, what do you expect? if he was anything but honest, i would be dissapointed.

    I agree that no one should be surprised by what he said. It's ignorant, but it doesn't make me mad or anything. All kinds of buttholes have tv shows.

    But classifying being accepting of homosexuals as "liberal thinking" is freaking stupid. His remarks may not have been inflammatory in the sense that he didn't say he wanted all gays to hide in a closet or burn in hell, but him essentially saying homosexuals are wrong because cat feels better is pretty god**mn undermining of something that is part of a person's identity, not just their own sexual kinks.

    I actually like DD. It's probably one of the few reality shows out there I will watch as you can tell from my sig and avatar. I'm not bothered by what he said. It's Phil's right to say it. Was it wrong? That's not for me or anyone else to say. He was speaking what he believes to be true in a fashion that wasn't slanderous. You don't see much of that these days. A&E suspending him is just a PC move so they don't get heat from GLAAD, which is a group that advocates tolerance only if it's on their terms. You would think they would realize that not everyone is going to agree with homosexuality.

    Now if he was asked about homosexuals and said "I don't want any of those f**gots on my show," then that'd be different. I do hope this doesn't snowball into the show going away. Like I said, it's one of the few I do like. But if it does, the Robertsons won't miss out on much. They were rich before, they'll continue to be rich after.

    The show is a cash cow for A&E. They're playing CYA until the heat dies down and the show will be back on with no hiccups and simply a little less will be seen of Phil.
    I have heard that Phil is wanting to step back from the TV side of things for the past couple of seasons and has been talked back into doing it by the network brbutt.

    As for what he said? He was asked his opinion and he gave it. He didn't slander anyone or promote violence or hate against anyone. Case closed.

    I Do not agree with his views. I think he has a right to speak his mind. we let nazis and racists have their say,why should we not let a regular citizen have his say?

    gays run hollywood ... do the math, it's not difficult to see why this happened.

    He basically said he never saw any of the lynchings and things that history has told us happened back then:

    He really shouldn't be ripped on for this one. If he didn't see anything, he didn't see anything. It's not like everyone who lived down south back then saw everything that went on.

    Have only seen a few episodes of the show but the dude was asked a question and he answered honestly. Political correctness is taking over the world or already has....
