A New Jersey man enamored with Phil Robertson's Christian messages hopped in his car and drove about 20 hours to the "Duck Dynasty" star's Church of Christ in Louisiana, just so he could be baptized by the family patriarch.
As the tolerance for more liberal ideals has increased among the American public, conservative ideals have been suppressed. The author of a biography of 18th-century French philosopher Voltaire coined the phrase "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
"Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson chose not to quack back. In one of his first chances to comment on the dust-up surrounding his outspoken father and co-star Phil Robertson, the younger Robertson had only kind words for the A&E network and New Year's wishes for the nation in an appearance Tuesday night on Fox News's "All-American New Year" special.
The family-owned business featured on hit reality television show "Duck Dynasty" has partnered with Mossberg manufacturers to make its own line of shotguns.
It's encouraging that A&E executives seem to have been converted from bigotry to tolerance after public objections to their suspension of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson ("A&E chooses profits over gays, Duck Dynasty over GLAAD," Web, Dec. 29). Now that the network has reversed course, it is readying a charm offensive "promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people." The planned message "supports our core values" along with those "found in 'Duck Dynasty.'"
A few years ago, the story broke that Jesse Jackson Sr. had fathered an illegitimate daughter, and that for some time he had been misdirecting funds from his organization to support her. If this had been almost anyone else, the latter deed would have been called embezzlement, and the perpetrator would have been facing serious prison time. On a Friday afternoon, Jackson announced that he was taking sabbatical for "a period of contemplation and reflection" (but not repentance or restitution).
For the second time in a year and a half, the radical activists who want to force all Americans to embrace the values of Sodom and Gomorrah have reached too far and come back with burned fingers.
After quite an eventful week in the news for Phil Robertson from the hit A&E show "Duck Dynasty," the patriarch of the group has made headlines again, but this time for something everyone can agree on.
The A&E channel said it's reversing its decision to drop "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson from the show for his remarks about gays.
The uproar over "Duck Dynasty" should be studied forever in the business schools as a priceless teaching exercise in marketing quackery. Television executives are so highly paid because they're supposed to be so smart. Rarely have so many smart guys been so out to lunch.
Jesse Jackson Sr. has a message for suspended "Ducky Dynasty" star Phil Robertson: you're worse than Rosa Park's bus driver.
Cable network A&E may not like what "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson said about gays, but the network still plans to make money from his reality show.
Last night for the first time, I watched an episode of "Duck Dynasty" and enjoyed it. That's good news because I saw an entertaining reality show in which I really liked the characters, all of whom seemed "real." That's bad news because I put another viewer in the A&E "win" column in the midst of all this mess. I don't agree with A&E's stance on the issues here ("Huge backlash mounts over suspension of 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson." Web, Dec. 19).
Feathers have flown in every direction over the announcement by A&E of its suspension of Phil Robertson from the "Duck Dynasty" TV show for daring to express an opinion of his own.
Pope Francis' call for a truce notwithstanding, the culture war rages on in America.
"I can count on one hand the people I met from New Jersey," Mr. Robertson said, telling the White's Ferry Road Church of Christ congregation about Brian Richards' journey.
Neither will "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, whose program ends with grace said in Jesus' name.
