The Duck Dynasty controversy continues to roll onward. In a new statement today, it appears that the Robertson family is edging toward quitting the A&E network and putting a halt to their Duck Dynasty TV show.

As we predicted on the day the controversy over clan leader Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ magazine about gays hit the news, the family is looking like they will probably quit the network that introduced them to the country.
Not to toot our own horn, but we here at MrConservative immediately said that the family would probably quit the show in solidarity with Phil.
Now it seems this may happen. Today the family released a statement on the whole issue and while they didn’t yet say they are quitting the show, it sure looks like that is the next step.

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.
While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.
We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.
Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
It is doubtful that A&E can reverse their decision without looking like idiots. So, the family will likely leave and maybe start a show on another network.
But, let’s face it. A&E hates this show anyway, quite despite the millions of dollars the show is making. A&E executives never wanted this show. They never wanted a Duck Dynasty that was in control of the rednecks they despise. They wanted a show where they could ridicule the stupid, uncouth rednecks, they never wanted a show filled with people America loves. A&E wanted a show filled with stupid people that Hollywood could make fun of and New Yorkers could guffaw at.
The Duck Dynasty that evolved was never the show that the A&E network wanted. The elitists at the network will be relieved to lose the show because they love their leftist ideology more than they love the millions the show makes them–and far more than they love America.
Do you think the Robertsons should tell A&E to stuff it? Tell us below.
