Default DUck Dynasty will shut it down if A&E bans guns or God

Yet another battle for freedom after NASCAR surrendered.


Quote:
'DUCK DYNASTY' STAR VOWS TO QUIT IF A&E BANS TALK OF GOD OR GUNS


On May 9, Greensboro, NC country station 93.1 The Wolf reported that after receiving complaints over prayers to God and the frequent use of guns on air, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson said, "God and guns are part of our everyday lives [and] to remove either of them from the show is unacceptable."

According to a post 93.1 The Wolf put in their Facebook page, Phil also said: "If we can't pray to God on the show, then we will not do the show." The post received more than 126,000 Facebook "likes."

Details regarding the source of the complaints have not been released. Nor has anyone clarified whether they originated within or without of A&E. Breitbart News has reached out to the network for comment.

One thing that has been reported is that A&E signed the Robertson family for another season, "under Phil Robertson's terms."

Wacky show, but Phil is a dedicated family man, outdoorsman and Christian.

He's got morals, good going Phil. I like how they pray before they eat, if you don't then Hey, don't watch it.

Like all those gun toting lefties are watching Duck Dynasty and the only thing they don't like is Phil giving a prayer before a meal.

It's a free country, if the man wants to pray, and people are offended by it, then DON'T WATCH THE PROGRAM, and spoil it for everyone else

The show is about family more than anything else. God and prayer are a big part of Phils family. Glad to see he took a stand and didn't cave in. I'd love to know who it was that complained.

Looks like Breitbart is gonna "go find out what they can find out"....
Crazy show, but has more morals in it that 1,000 liberal shows combined.

Here's an idea for the folks that are offended by praying and guns, that good little rectangle in your hand with all the buttons, it has the power to let you watch something else! Shocker, I know. I use that exact same device to not have to watch CNN and MSNBC too. It works magic.

BTW who replaced Kumar as Obowmao's Ambassador to the "Stars"? I ask because I wonder if the new Ambassador is putting pressure on Hollywierd to downplay any positive showing of people clinging to their guns or religion.

Seen the previews on A&E and first thought I would not watch it. But, seen the first show and liked it alot. Great show.

I'm offended by the mainstream meadia not doing their job, making edits to twist the truth --- so time to shut them down. lol

I seriously doubt A&E would remove two of the key components of what makes the show work. I haven't seen it, but I get the gist.

I'd like to know who the whiners are that are complaining about it. They probably love the unruly pregnant teenagers on Maury.

Ah. NOW it makes more sense. There weren't even any complaints made against A&E. Just some right-wing Tawana Brawley making up bullsh** RE:re:Fw:FW:Re:FW:re: lies to support a bullsh** political agenda.
