    Nah, I'm an athiest. I don't believe in any superior being, power entities or whatever anyone wants to call it but that has nothing to do with this topic. I really do think that a&e made a bad decision here but I also think that considering all the real messes and problems in the world all this hoorah over a TV show seems a bit specious.

        I'd love to be a fly on the wall in A&E corporate offices this morning.

          I think it might be interesting to know the proclivities of the people running A&E

          It is Hollywood after all Lol

              They may be slowing down now. They are now at 1,611,312+ likes or 177,991+ in 12-hours.

                  It sure is. Close to two million people that care more about a TV show than they do about the people they elect.

                      I don't think so. Folks these days won't get off the couch to go down and vote but they will gladly log on to Facebook and voice their opinion in a venue that is meaningless. BTW this is not a freedom of speech issue as apparently millions of folks think it is. A&E is a privately owned corporation with shareholders. They get their money from selling advertising time. They are not the federal government and as such they are in no way obligated to the constitution. Ere is no freedom of speech on the TV. If there was we'd be hearing the "F" word constantly. They have probably made a bad decision but if so, they will pay the financial price for it. Nobody gives a crap about Benghazi but let Miley Cyrus dance around half naked or A&E pull duck dynasty and all hell breaks loose. It just shows where people's priorities are these days. I'll let you all get back to texting, face booking and fiddling with your phones. Lol

                        It's estimated 126,000,000 of the 197,828,022 registered voters voted in the 2012 elections. How do you know who those people were.

                        As for A&E's right to fire Phil, I agree they had every right but only because it was likely contractual. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of l964, you cannot be terminated for your religious views. As for freedom of speech, they attempted to impede his ability to have free speech. He has more money then he needs and they will not silence him.

Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we've done. You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren't shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings.

                          You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores. And, we apologize for offending you.

                            Mark,
                            Cracker Barrel has always been one of my go-to gift cards for certain customers whose corporate policies limit the amount that can given at one time ($25). I'd like to think that my email helped.

                              What A&E didn't realize was this group is extremely well liked, and if anything this just gave them major movements to wherever they want to go.

                              If I was them, live to your first action like Phil did and move on, they'll do just fine.
