Didn´t Want to Diss Gay Employees
TMZ.com, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/21/2013 9:08:53 AM

Phil Robertson disrespected gay employees at A&E ... and THAT´S why he was sacked from "Duck Dynasty" ... sources connected with the network tell TMZ. We´re told A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc felt she could not in good conscience ask gay employees to kill themselves for a show when he disrespected them by calling them sinners. Our sources say ... gay employees involved in the production -- and there are a number of them -- were outraged by Phil´s comments to GQ and wanted Dubuc to give him the ax. We´re told Dubuc felt this way ... If Phil had made

Comments:
Mark Levin is right. We are being ruled by tyranny of the minority. What about dissing Christian employees or Christian viewers. This is the danger of political correctness, it shuts down the speech of those who don´t share your same views, on anything. I guess it´s more important to bow down to those few gays on your staff rather than make millions of dollars on a successful franchise and showing what millions of other people want to see.

A&E knew about Phil Robertson´s views on homosexuality. It is simply now confecting its outrage to cover up for the fact that it has been exposed.

´Disrespected´ is a ´victim´ word and should be stricken from the English language in all its forms. A really big problem we have today is people being so thin-skinned. People need to get over themselves!

Ain´t that a convenient story...Now CEO Nancy can explain to those who she claims were disrespected that, due to her actions, the DD show will be canceled and the "disrespected gay employees" will be laid off.
That should fix it.

So, paraphrasing St Paul´s words in Leviticus is to be considered dissing gays and grounds for termination?
I am totally out of tolerance for the gay community.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. All those oh-so-very-offended and sniveling gays who work on Duck Dynasty will soon be out of a job. Somehow that seems fair.

A&E including all their employees need the Robertsons way more than the Robertsons need them...that is the very large miscalculation here. I, for one, would like to see the Duck Dynasty family tell A&E to pound sand.

Harvey Levin of TMZ on Greta last night said that interview was done three months ago with A&E´s knowledge and approval. Go figure!

So let me see if I understand this. Gays do not wish to be discriminated against but are perfectly comfortable with discriminating against others.

Got it. Gays are not against discrimination; they want to be the ones doing the discriminating.

SO in order to keep from having to work with Robertson, they demanded he be fired thus eliminating their top show and probably their job. Isn´t this just like the Twinkie employees who struck, killed the company and then lost their jobs. Twinkies... Heh.

Don´t buy "Duck Dynasty" items such as t-shirts, calendars, mugs, etc. When you do, you are paying A&E, not the stars of DD.

If you want to show your support for Duck Dynasty, buy directly from the DD family at:

I´ve seen this before and heard it before. And I´ll say here what these Liberals hate hearing: We are ALL sinners in the eyes of God.

All of us. Genocidal Murderers and schoolkids who steal pencils. There is no difference in God´s Eyes.

All of us. We fall short of God´s glory and are unworthy of his presence. Those who are in Christ, living or dead by our definitions are in God´s presence and are in Heaven, which is all that is within His presence. Those who are not in His presence are in Hell, which is the lack of God, as He will not force us to be with Him.

All of us. Only Christ is the bridge that allows us to return to God.

What Phil said made perfect sense and was not in the least, demeaning or judgmental. He was simply stating the Truth. If we are to be children of God, we, like good children, should seek to emulate Christ and avoid things forbidden, even if we want those forbidden things very much. Animals do whatever they desire - Man was given different rules.

Nancy has a problem, Nancy doesn´t understand Christians. Phil never called them sinners, GOD called them sinners. The Bible is explicit, Phil did nothing more then paraphrase the scripture. If Nancy or any homo has a problem with the Bible then their beef is with GOD.

If, on the other hand, they don´t believe in the inerrancy of scripture or don´t believe in the Bible or GOD, again just because they don´t believe doesn´t mean it´s not true.

They are betting their eternal souls on that question.

I guess eventually the gays will find out if homosexuality is a sin against God or not. If it is, I guess it will be too late to do anything about it.

If it is, and I don´t really know, I wonder if it´s one of them thar mortal sins?

I don´t recall the Duck Dynasty clan refusing to continue the show with gay production staff. So, the real intolerance rears its ugly head in the way-to-sensitive, pampered pony, whinny production staff members who may be laid off if the Duck Dynasty show is canned. It is to laugh.

I was a Christian mentor in the Eastham Unit in Lovelady, Texas for almost 15 years. Being dissed or disrespected real or imagined (mostly imagined) could get you severely beaten or even killed. These gay employees are really no different than those felons except Phil didn´t have to worry about being attacked. I´m so sick of "my feelings were hurt", "it´s not fair", "I´ve been disrespected", "you´re a racist", "what was said made me feel uncomfortable"! Good grief all Phil said is what a lot of us wondered all along. Like Billy Graham Phil said that the Bible calls homosexuality a sin. Phil never said anyone in particular was a sinner.

It´s that they thought they were in control. They thought they could get Robinson fired yet keep the show because they thought they were the most important people on the show. As always they are a legend in their own mind ... just because they are loud and obnoxious. They are slow to learn that you yank on the tail of a tiger you get bit.

I can´t tell from the article if it was homosexual A&E employees who demanded Robertson be fired, or GLAAD activists, or if this was all Nancy Lubuc´s bright idea. I think the first possibility is the LEAST likely. As others have pointed out, this show has been on the air for several years, with no apparent conflict for the staffers, who can´t be only NOW discovering what Christianity says about homosexuality.

The activists wouldn´t care, though - it´s always a good time to attack Christians. As for Lubuc initiating this and then hiding behind her "gay employees", I can believe that too. Many times (especially in Britain) management cracks down on Christian symbols or popular traditions with the excuse that it MIGHT "offend Muslims", and it turns out that no Muslims even complained or were even concerned about the issue. It was just a pre-emptive surrender by people who are over-eager to show off how sensitive and inclusive they are. (And I suspect, secretly harbor their OWN resentments of Christianity, and are happy to use other people as proxies to carry on their vendetta.)

Grow up. Quit whining. Get out of our faces. Quit demanding special treatments and laws. Live your lives as you see fit, but quietly. Respect the rest of us and let us live our lives as we see fit.

They should challenge the Muslims who persecute and even execute homosexuals. Take up your campaign of wanting respect with that ´religious´ group. This is all noise and phony clap trap from a pack of little fleas on a mighty big dog.

So, what she is saying is that homosexual employees of the show wanted Phil Robertson to shut up about his beliefs, because they wanted their beliefs to prevail over his?

Why not relocate those offended employees so they wouldn´t feel like they were killing themselves for someone and something with which they disagreed?

Sadly, they may not realize until Judgment Day that Phil Robertson was not disrespecting them - rather he is showing the utmost respect and love by telling the truth.

Tedious and borderline schizophrenic.

If they believe in the God of Abraham they know sodomy is a sin. If they don´t believe in God, then calling it a sin has no meaning.

Yet to hear them protest, you´d think someone ran them over repeatedly with an SUV or something.

The thing is i cannot understand why the homosexual community seem upset that Mr. Robertson spoke of two body parts. God created our bodies, and should someone speak of them in a clinical way, then why should the gay lobby suggest that Phil is using "coarse language"? Aren´t early education sex courses in our schools telling our young children that they should properly name their body parts??? (little sarcasm here on my part)

The gay community should not be upset that Phil Robertson was, essentially, comparing an homosexual to a heterosexual act. It is what it is, and they should analyze why that information being in a public discourse upsets them (and I am not being sarcastic here).

The legal issues here need some focusing.

This is not a First Amendment issue, because Governmental action is not involved.

Unless there are provisions in an employment contract to be construed, every employer should have (and absent anti-freedom of choice, "civil rights" legislation would continue to have) the full and express right to fire any "at will" employee that they want to fire -- for any reason whatsoever, and/or for no reason at all.

And by the same token, the Duck Team should continue to have (and apparently, does contractually have) the full right to take their top-rated show to any network (but possibly change the name, somewhat, if they don´t own the trademark, "Duck Dynasty"). [[As an experienced trademark lawyer, if they do so and A& E files an improvident lawsuit, I will volunteer to defend them, gratis]].

Why would they want to continue to make money for A&E, with whom they do not agree?

And, obviously, viewers can "vote" on what they like or don´t like -- with their ratings.

I´ve had the same thought as #36. The feminists also like to throw proper terms around (the Monologues) and that´s considered okay so why would this be objectionable. Perhaps opening the window about what actually goes on will clue in people who didn´t know. Sort of like the rude awakening some people had when confronted with details of what actually happens in abortions.

I´ve used those same scriptures with a couple of drunkards, and they never complained of being offended.

Notice how gays constantly need to be affirmed by the straight world that what they practice is OK. To me that shows they at some level are unsure of their lifestyle. If they truly believed the gay lifestyle was OK, they would need to be constantly reassured of it.

There are many aspects of homosexuality that are not readily understood – either by the homosexual or greater communities. One reason is that, in polite circles – and given the possibility of misunderstanding and personal offence – homosexuality is not a topic of any substantial frequency.

One aspect of such misunderstanding is a reasonable theory as to why homosexuals display certain, distinctive, and albeit rather uniform, manners of speech and physical gestures – which some others find to be sat least a bit unusual.

If one were to ask a Gay person for the reason(s) why, the likely answer would be something like: “This is the natural way that I have been created to speak and/or act…” – as though somehow speech and gestures were not learned behavior.
One explanation for the behavior of this small part of the population is that it is thereby that one of the putative “partners” is able, relatively safely, to invite homosexual advance.

And, the reason why this indication is necessary would be to prevent violence from an otherwise ill-timed, and mis-intentioned, communication towards someone who would find a homosexual proposal to constitute grounds for violence – [[somewhat similar to the utility of a lioness “signaling” that she is genuinely “a-lioness-in-heat” (i.e., receptive), and watch out if she is something else]].

The prevalence and uniformity of this self-preservation, biological “signaling” behavior -- as evolutionarily copied from the mammalian world -- itself demonstrates that there is a very large part of greater-community males who would find a homosexual advance to be, at the very least, “unwanted”. And a reasonable explanation for this primal emotion is that a very large part of the male population does in fact find the homosexual act to be disgusting – and, even sufficiently so as to provoke violence.

(Continued)


Finally, and given the necessary conclusion that there is a depth of revulsion held by seemingly the vast majority of males in the society, the Gay community (and its spokesman/apologist, Piers “America’s Got Talent” Morgan) may want to acknowledge the high degree of toleration of this libertarian society. And, if they want to go a bit further in the condor of this self-assessment exercise, Piers, the erstwhile Talent Judge, together with his small minority following might also chose to acknowledge that it is not the existence of Robertson’s views on biology and religion that is unusual – but rather the fact that he has said what many other, more-polite persons are thinking.

Note to Ms Dubuc at A&E, they are sinners! Not according to Phil Robertson, but according to the God he believes in and follows. If people have a problem with that or it hurts their itty bitty feelings then they need to take it up with God, not take it out on Phil.

So what is the big deal? What about the feelings of the beastiality people?

Truth is it is about a bunch of folks who are power seeking to impose their desires upon others. Gay unions would have made for some parity without threatening the Defense of Marriage act and years old hetro marriage traditions where a father or family would not let go of a daughter without some legal assurance of her well being.

The GLAAD power movement wants what they want without thought to what comes next. They are not necessarily linked to NAMBLA (whom the press never mentions anymore) but will their rights give rights to NAMBLA? The dam opened when it should not have been?

The GLAAD people do not want equal rights, they want the power to force people to think what they wish them to think--that gs and hetro marriages are the same and that punishment will come to those who might wish to think or even say otherwise.

I wouldn´t go after gays with a hood on and actually like what they add to historical evolution of our civilization and current society but "No one likes to be told what to do and even more so what to think"

The attack on the quoting of the Bible is ominously oppressive and it needs to end here for the sake of all religious freedom IMO.

So, it took them four days to come up with this lame brained, totally unbelievable excuse? Could there be any doubt, what-so-ever, at any time, ever, what the DD people think and believe? How dim does the network exec have to be? It´s just not possible they could not have known this belief after all these shows. But, once is it spoken out loud- suddenly A&E employees are offended?

That´s so stupid it´s hilarious!

Pointing out sinful behavior is now objectionable. The sinner has been ´disrespected´, and pointing out sin must be silenced. Society becomes more corrupted. Ultimately, God will judge.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.
