    It was anything but anti gay rant. Rant?!?!? Good grief. Anyone who has ever heard him speak would never say rant when referring to him. He talks of loving people including gays. hate the sin love the sinner. I think A & E will regret this. Big time. This show is the most popular thing on tv.

    this is a joke. what happened to this country?! free speech? i guess not anymore. these gay and lesbians need to go to another country. i am so sick of them and their sensitivity. sorry gays, its a choice, its weird, its a sin, and its gross. you are going to be made fun of. the more you come out and make a big scene about things like this; you only make yourselves look worse!! such a disgrace to America and our founding fathers!

    He really stepped in it.

    The only thing possibly saving them is how damn much money they are making A&E, but it would not surprise me at all if that was the beginning of the end for Duck Dynasty.

    He'll be back after the holidays (they only suspended him). Much like what happened with Dog.

    A&E was around before dd and will be after. Also being on A&E made those guys household names. the dd crew aren't the only ones holding the cards

    What will be interesting to see is how Walmart reacts.

    Approximately everything in their stores right now is Duck Dynasty branded (slight exaggeration, but supposedly well over half of the Duck Dynasty revenue is coming from Walmart merchandise sales right now), and they have a bit of a track record with branding personalities that make themselves controversial (removing the significant portion of their cooking section that bore Paula Deen's name and likeness when she managed to wade out into controversial waters).

    I doubt that will be their reaction here because, frankly, the people who are likely to be most offended aren't shopping at Walmart to start with, but they do tend to monitor public opinion on things, so will be interesting to watch.

    so you think he should be kicked off TV because of his religious thoughts? after all the money they made that network. left wingers are ruining the country. why was this not a story when alec baldwin used a gay slur in an attacking manner. this guy didn't even use this to attack someone, he stated an opinion

    Many people knew of A&E. a very small amount ever heard of the Robertsons. Looks like they started the timer on their 15 minutes

    anstro, its sad that in America, a land founded on basic christian principles; people are put down for their faith. plus they gave A&E some ridiculously good ratings that they probably have not seen for a while. seems like the relationship goes both way(no pun intended) and both parties will be A-OK without eachother

    It wasn't what he thought, but what he said in an interview. His religious statements aren't protected speech since A&E is not the government but a private entity so it's their choice. But I'm with you, those bad left-wingers are ruining all the chances for some folks to spew hatred unfettered.

    About Alec Baldwin...

    1) you know about his comments precisely because it was reported in the news...widely (though I don't know your news reading habits).

    2) He was fired

    3) Given your views, did you speak out against msnbc canning him?

    i actually am completely against people being fired for free speech. i understand private entities are entitled to do whatever they want, i just think it is a complete joke. overall its a free country, if i want to say that i think being gay is gross, than i can. if you want to call me stupid for it, than you can. i think its what makes our country great(or used to be great). yes, left wingers want everyone to be super friendly... work hard so the crack smoking hippie can have health insurance... oh yeah also; don't say anything bad about those radical terrorist, obama doesn't want to offend his muslim brothers. what a shame

    Completely? Really? Go up to your boss tomorrow and call him a scum sucking child molester and then claim free speech or your religious views (but you have to mean it). Let us know how far that gets you.
