On Wednesday, A&E suspended the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family for allegedly making anti-gay remarks during his interview with GQ magazine. Millions of people have stepped up to Phil Robertson’s defense, including Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” Phil was quoted as saying. “That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he continued. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

A&E immediately released a statement in regards to Phil’s comments. “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community,” the statement read. “The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Sarah was the first of the Palin family to voice her opinion on Phil’s suspension. She took to her personal Facebook page, to show her outrage at the “quacks at A&E.” One of Sarah’s posts read: “Free speech is an endangered species. Those “intolerants” hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.”

Soon after, Bristol also took to her Facebook page to show support for Phil and the rest of the Duck Dynasty clan. She changed her profile picture to a picture of Phil that read: “I support Phil Robertson and his right to express his faith and his beliefs.”

Not only are people all over the world coming to Phil’s defense, Phil himself released a statement defending his remarks. “I myself am a product of the ’60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said. “My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me.”

    Since when are the Palons re;evant? The only religion they know is self worship. They think they are above God, the Constitution, and everything else.

    • john

      I’am a little confused,this article is about Bristol Palin.Why are you commenting about the Obama’s??

      • Susan Dobbs

        Obamas? nothing in this article mentions Obama.

        • john

          Figure out the sarcasm professor.

    Why am I not surprised here?
    Is this the GOP’s biggest issue?
    Most people, including “liberals” just shrug this kind of trash off.
    Doesn’t the producers of this show have the right to Edit and change?
    Maybe I am wrong, and going against popular opinion, but I can’t see any thing to like about this show. Trash by any other name, is still trash.

    • john

      So calling someone “trash” is what you call “shrugging off”.You are one dumb liberal.

      Carl , this is liberals causing all the trouble. They express their opinion and nothing happens, it is okay, great. Phill expressed his and all hell broke loose. It is his opinion and view. I have the same view and I have a right to say so . It is about freedom of speech not just what the Gay view is. They have a right to their view , so does Phill tho. A&E has no right to suspend him off the show, they have always known his opinion as anyone who watches the show knows. What is it the gay community says about all the gay people on shows, if we do not like it turn it off. So we do and THEY DO NOT GET SUSPENED ! hIS OPINION IS NOT BASED ON HATE , Our opinion is based what we believe. THINK !

    If you don’t like some ones opinion on something, STOP ASKING the QUESTION…!!! Just because Phil didn’t give the answer that the bleeding heart liberals , Liberal news Media, Pro gay rights, ETC, ETC, ETC wanted to hear, Don’t criticize and condemn them. AGAIN>>> STOP ASKING THE STUPID QUESTION…!!!! Ask and talk about something that is worth QUAKING about. God bless you Phil and God Bless the rightful, Faithful in ones right to his own opion…..

    She needs to support closing her legs and not having any more unwed bastard children! Her and her Family are jokes. Her mom cannot run her home(why she has a bastard grandchild) so why does she want to run a country! She is the most ignorant of all and her whore daughter did not fall far from the hollowed out tree!

    • john

      She could keep her leg’s wide open like you and have a dozen abortion’s.Posting about a child and refering to him as a bastard just show’s what kind of rock you slitherted out from under.I’m sure break is over,so get back on your pole you PIG.

    Kudos to Phil Robertson for speaking up when so many of us keep silent,
    thereby giving credence to the ungodly practices that are dragging our great nation into a pig pen of immorality. More of us need to take a stand for what’s scripturally right.

    A&E purposely submarined Phil Robertson they knew as a Christian how he would react to the question.It is about time Christians started to open their mouths. There is so much Christian bashing going on, especially with Catholism. The Christian community better wake up. The Catholic church does more for the indigent han any other faith.

    How to make a situation worse for someone? Get the Palins to chine in to support you. Yeah because they are a real voice for compassion, intelligence and reason…NOT!
    I for one think Phil Robertson is entitled to his opinion and he should not get fired from that program, which I have never watched because I really dislike what they call reality TV. But it seems to me we hold celebrities to a much higher standard for what they say. From Paula Dean, Charlie Sheen, Alic Baldwin, Hank Williams Jr, Phil Robertson and on to ad nauseam – this politically correct atmosphere has created a climate where no one will be able to give an honest opinion about any subject.
    Oh and don’t just blame the so called liberals, this attacking of people for voicing their opinions comes from both sides of the political spectrum. Look at what Toby Keith and the right wing nuts did to the Dixie Chicks for being critical of President Geo Bush Jr. I mean banned from hundreds of radio stations. Vilified and threatened at every turn.
    The trouble is so called liberals and extreme right wingers have come so close in their hatred of free speech that they both attack anyone who disagrees with their views with a vengeance. Chill out everybody!
