Matt tells A&E like it is & puts them in their place.

Most of us have lived a similar life to the Robertson's minus the duck calls. From what I read he was tired of the publicity, tired of the show, and was headed out of the spotlight anyway. I don't see him fighting this at all. He is probably glad it's over.

I won't go into the rest of my rant on this as it would get the thread locked quicker...

I don't believe this was a publicity stunt?

What one chooses to believe and express on an individual level is protected and always should be.

What someone says while in someone else's house so to speak is not and should not be. The show, network, whoever, gets to decide what they will permit or not.

Yes, exactly! I don't watch the show nor know the details, could care less,but I've seen it's impact on the social media feeds that's for sure. As someone else posted the guy (actor) was sick of it and this turned out to be great way for him to go.....publicity for the show. If you believe this type of publicity will affect the station negatively then i would disagree. Everyone nowadays wants to see a trainwreck and they'll tune in to see how the rest of the family (actors) are going to handle it.

there was an issue earlier about them saying a pray at the end....it wasn't an option for them....they either said it or no more show....that is what I am talking about, Christian need to stand there ground more these days from people trying to stomp on the rights ....A&E should grow some nads and stand behind one of the most popular shows on cable....and the people making it happen....this was off there network and should have NO bearing on the show at all

Don't hit me, but I can't watch the show...I tried many times and it isn't to my taste. I don't like reality shows...don't watch hardly any of them.

The end of the show with the prayer is the only part I liked and enjoyed watching. It was always well thought out and articulate. I actually borrowed a couple sayings from these prayers on the show. I would DVR these shows and forward to the prayer and ending.

As for the old man I can't blame him for being done....can you even imagine being folloowed around by a film crew all the time? It would get awful real fast.

Things you should take away from this Phil Robertson mess...

1. Freedom of speech along with all other rights in the Constitution protects you only from the Government not a private entity or organization.

2. Christians are the only denomination you can bash and get away with it.

3. Political Correctness is only correct when you agree with the leftist hippies.

I'm not surprised at all that this happened I'm actually amazed it took so long. I have had the pleasure of knowing Phil for a long time...pretty close to 25 years now and I can assure you the spotlight from the show was never something he enjoyed or desired. He was however appreciative of the fact that it provided him an opportunity to share his story and his beliefs with a much larger audience than he ever imagined possible. He was hopeful that there would be people out there who would benefit from hearing his story, hearing the changes he made and seeing how his life benefited from those changes. I think we will all see now just how strong the family is because Will and Cory are all about the $$$ and will have to go against the majority if they don't react in a way that Phil approves of. I wish them all the best!

Catholics?????? Um, no one bashes Muslims? Jews? Vegetarians? The list goes on and on. Everyone has hate being directed towards them from some direction. The problem we have is we cannot be content in believing what we believe without imposing those beliefs on others of a differing opinion. We see it here almost daily! Seems like very few of us can carry on a discussion with those of opposing views without getting insulted, insulting or into personal attacks.

im bored by this show. i find the debacle entertaining because the friends who introduced me to the show happen to be lesbians. there is a growing population of LGBT outdoorsmen/women and alienating any part of your audience is not wise for business.

I support Phil for speaking up and stating what he believes. Unfortanetely Christanity and God is under attack in are "so called" Christian Nation.

If Phil wants to be back on TV it is very simple. The rest of family will simply quit or simply does not renew a contract with A&E and another competing tv channel picks them up. They have made millions for A&E and will make millions for another channel if they leave A&E.
