I barely even watch television, but when I do, it’s either football, something educational or Duck Dynasty. It’s nice being able to watch a family that is proud of its faith and not ashamed to proclaim Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. With the explosive popularity of the show I’d say a lot of other Americans may feel the same way. That’s why the recent of actions of A&E really have ruffled my feathers. I look around and really have to wonder what has happened to America and just how much longer God will allow us to survive as a nation when we are so embroiled in apostasy.
We have a total lack of integrity in our leadership from the top down. Washington is wrought with scandal. No one seems to be held accountable, unless of course you are a Christian conservative, then you are fair game for the media and all of the pathetic special interest groups to demand you be tarred and feathered.
It’s really time we stand up as a nation and say, “Enough is enough”. Phil Robertson has every right to express his opinion. A&E arranged the recent interview with GQ magazine, they know Phil Robertson is a man of conviction, they know how he feels about certain issues, but the lure of the almighty dollar would not stop them from arranging an interview where they knew he would not give “politically correct” answers.
I know a lot of people are lighting up the phone lines to A&E to complain about their action, but that will only go so far. If you really want to put the pressure on A&E, you have to hit them where it hurts – their sponsors. I’ve done some digging and found this list. The list appears to have been originated by a Miss Brittney Pounders of www.clashdaily.com . I will add more sponsors to the list as I find them. I hope you will take the time to let these sponsors know how you feel about their continued support of A&E.
