Phil Robertson's Suspension Lifted on 'Duck Dynasty'

TV Duck Dynasty

According to People's TV WATCH, Duck Dynasty will resume filming in the new year. In a statement released Friday from A&E, it will include "the entire Robertson family," which includes the ever-controversial Phil Robertson.

A&E Networks had previously suspended Robertson after his interview with GQ magazine expressing his anti-gay beliefs. A&E's statement continues: "While Phil's comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the 'coarse language' he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article," the statement continued. "He also made it clear he would 'never incite or encourage hate.'"

The network also says it will air PSAs "promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people."

This has nothing to do with free speech! They can do all the hate talk they want but we can also turn them off. Let them write in newspapers and magazines (which I doubt they can actually read or write), and they can have all the free speech they want. I for one do not listen to or watch people who spread hate!

A&E's first response to Phil's statements speaks volumes about what they really believe. Lifting the ban now has only been done to appease the uproar that followed. I no longer have any use for this network since they don't believe in freedom of religious beliefs for EVERYBODY. I will never watch this channel again which is too bad because I really like Duck Dynasty. I wish they would go with another network! I have always believed that people have the right to speak out loud what they think and this includes Jesus believing Christians. I am taking my rights back!!!!!
