Duck Dynasty Faces I Stand with Phil Petition

After Phil Robertson spoke disparagingly of the LGBT community, he was banned from A&E’s hit show Duck Dynasty. However, intolerance is a two-way street. A&E has learnt this as it faces the I Stand with Phil petition.

Duck Dynasty Faces I Stand with Phil Petition

Phil Robertson was into Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll. He had hit rock bottom when he was miraculously saved by his faith in Jesus Christ as a savior. From that day onward he preached the Christian Way of Life to everyone. However, his comments on gays and lesbians being sinful on A&E’s hit show Duck Dynasty proved quite controversial. He was struck off the list of stars on the show. 

Phil said that he was merely stating a fact that men and women should be together. This was the model of marital behavior that was followed by the majority of Americans as well as the rest of the world. And while he did respect those different from him, that didn’t mean he shouldn’t have strong opinions regarding sexuality himself. 

The fans of the star came out in flocks and droves to support him. Such was the uproar over Phil’s cancellation from the Duck Dynasty show that Twitter was forced to reinstate the I Stand with Phil petition which it had previously blocked due to a mistake. 

The Faith Driven Consumer website I Stand with Phil  has stated in clear words that A&E should consider taking Phil Robertson back on its Duck Dynasty show otherwise it will be completely boycotted by the moral majority. I Stand with Phil petition states: 

"Dear A&E Network,

I am writing to you regarding your network's intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment of Mr. Phil Robertson, star of A&E's #1 hit show, Duck Dynasty.

Mr. Robertson’s comments in GQ Magazine are simply reflective of a Biblical view of sexuality, marriage, and family – a view that has stood the test of time for thousands of years and continues to be held by the majority of Americans and today’s world as a whole."

Up until now the site has gathered 228,000 votes in favor of Phil petition. That is just a few thousand short of its goal of 250,000 votes in favor of the star."  

As a Faith Driven Consumer, I am signing this petition to demand that my views be treated with equality and respect in America’s rich rainbow of diversity. John Q. Public also said in his I Stand with Phil petition:

"I am asking your network to immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson to Duck Dynasty, and to formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week, stand by him, and share his worldview." 

It seems that tolerance includes the right to not be tolerant. That is like saying you have the choice not to choose, which does make sense when you like at it from an unbiased angle.
