BREAKING: Robertson Family Fires Back Against A&E in Statement – Future of Show in Jeopardy
We feel the need to mention the fact that yes, we are aware of this story. The only reason we’re publishing this post is because of the overwhelming number of messages we’ve received asking us to post something about it.
I guess it’s sort of gun related. Duck Dynasty -> Duck Hunting -> Shotguns?
Anyway, the Robertson family has fired back at the network that carries their show, A&E, in a recent statement.
“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.
– Robertson Family
This is probably the last we’ll post on the issue to keep things on topic.
