The American people never cease to amaze me when things really look bleak and discouraging. Twitter was abuzz last night when they learned that Duck Dynasty’s patriarch was indefinitely suspended for his opinions in a GQ article. Some felt that it was a set up piece designed to catch the strong-will Christian with some sort of intolerant speech. Others feel it was an attack on his freedom to say whatever he wanted to.

A&E suspends Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Chrisitians are NOT supposed to have opinions. It offends the liberals. #tcot

(1/2) I don't agree with Phil Robertson over what he believes, but he had the right to say it in the article. Unfortunately, A&E's reaction

A&E you suck! You owe Phil Robertson a public apology. I stand with the Robertson clan. Remember Chick-Fil-A?

Duck Dynasty suspended bc Phil Robertson made biblical comments about how homosexuality and adultery is a sin?! RIDICULOUS
“Honestly I don't think Phil Robertson's in the wrong. He's supporting his religion & I respect that.” Exactly, everyone has opinions.

This Phil Robertson stuff is crazy. The media these days…this country's headed for bad news, QUICK.

You guys. Phil Robertson made comments about vaginas and male anuses, and that is probably why A&E made the decision they did.

Phil Robertson's comments weren't "anti-gay" they were PRO CHRISTIAN…plain and simple.
