Official Statement from Robertson Family Regarding A&E’s Suspension of Phil Robertson … ‘We Cannot Imagine the Show’ Without Phil Robertson


‘Duck Dynasty’ Family: ‘We Cannot Imagine the Show’ Without Phil Robertson …

So what is the state of affairs of the reality TV show ‘Duck Dynasty’ going forward on A&E following their knee-jerk reaction to suspend family patriarch Phil Robertson indefinitely for stating his Constitutionally protected freedom of speech and region as a result of pressure from gay activist groups? The family makes it very well known that are about God and family first and foremost which would signal that the future of the show continuing on A&E without Phil is nil.

The Robertson Family Official Statement from Duck

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.


Check this out, not only did sponsor Skyjacker pledge their support to Phil and the Robertson family and that they would stay with ‘Duck Dynasty,’ but according to TMZ, so is main sponsor Under Armour (UA).

The company adds, “We are obviously aware of the situation. And his comments are not indicative of Under Armour’s views.”

UA insists the company is committed to treating all people equally and with respect … even if Phil isn’t.

      I know who Phil Roberson is but who is A&E? I also know what freedom of speech and religion means.This is not a gay/ straight issue but a freedom issue. I hope the Cracker Barrel story is not accurate because I am a frequent customer.That will change if it is true.
