Duck Dynasty‘s Phil and Alan Robertson teamed up to release an annotated version of the New King James Bible, complete with “30 life-changing testimonials” and “125 Set Your Sights features” from the A&E stars.
Duck Dynasty‘s Alan Robertson said dad Phil Robertson is like “a 21st century prophet” and is very similar to John the Baptist. Alan also defended his dad’s controversial comments on sin and sexuality.
During a fire and brimstone Easter sermon, Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson repeated — nearly word-for-word — one of the comments about homosexuality that got him temporarily suspended by A&E last December.
Now that Phil Robertson is officially back in the Duck Dynasty fold the family is getting back to what they do second best (behind entertaining millions): merchandising! In addition to t-shirts, bobble heads, duck calls, Christmas CDs, prom dresses and Chia pets, fans of the popular A&E show can soon own their own Duck Dynasty firearms! Robertson family business Duck Commander has teamed up with Connecticut-based gun manufacturer Mossberg for a line of camouflaged weaponry that includes nine different types of shotguns, two rifles (one semiautomatic) and a semiautomatic pistol.
After allowing reporters into his Bible study on Sunday night, Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson stood by his controversial statements on sexual sin: “From the beginning Jesus said, ‘It is a man and a woman.’”
See what else Phil said, plus the reaction from fellow Christians in his community.
Caught in the middle of the fallout from Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s controversial comments about race and homosexuality are the businesses selling Duck Dynasty merchandise. Tennessee-based restaurant chain and retailer Cracker Barrel, who are still trying to rebuild their image after the U.S. Department of Justice found them guilty of numerous racist practices in 2004, announced last week that they would be removing “selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests.” As you might imagine, the decision drew quite the backlash from a large number of Cracker Barrel customers, and this weekend the company did a complete turnaround and even offered an apology. Keep reading for all those details and find out what other networks are offering to take Duck Dynasty off of A&E’s hands! Oh, and there’s a lengthy poem thing dedicated to Phil Robertson written be Charlie Sheen too.
Fans of Duck Dynasty should enjoy the show while it lasts. Production sources say season four will likely be the last, as the Robertsons and A&E struggle to compromise.
The Robertson family from Duck Dynasty issues an official statement addressing the suspension of patriarch Phil Robertson after his controversial comments about homosexuality and race in a new GQ interview. In the statement the family acknowledges Phil’s comments were “coarse” but adds that they were “grounded in the teachings of the Bible.” The statement then casts a shadow on the future of the series when it reveals the family is “in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty,” but that they “cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.”
Phil Robertson’s suspension from Duck Dynasty in the wake of a new GQ interview in which Phil makes numerous negative comments about homosexuality and says black people in the South never complained “pre-entitlement” has angered some of the show’s conservative Christian fan base, and now there is an online petition that is being marketed with the hash tag #IStandWithPhil calling for his reinstatement. Keep reading for more information on the petition, which now has well over 16,000 signatures (it had just under 10,000 when I started writing this post).
