GLAAD says they have never gotten more angry phone calls and emails than they have since they decided to launch their attack on Phil Robertson, and escalated their speech and thought war against Christians at the same time.

But Yahoo reports that they’re not apt to learn anything. The group still wants to re-educate Phil Robertson.

After the meeting (between A&E executives and GLAAD), GLAAD issued its statement on Robertson’s comments. A&E initially released a statement from Robertson in which he said he would “never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me.” But the network declined to comment itself until Wednesday night, when it announced the suspension, which GLAAD applauded.

“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said.

The organization is also currently researching companies who use Robertson as a spokesperson.

There is no veil over that threat: GLAAD still wants Robertson to do exactly what they say, or they will try to deprive Robertson and his family of their livelihood. GLAAD would be called a McCarthyist group if they weren’t among the media’s favorite go-to activist cells. GLAAD has no intention of meeting with the Christians it wants to persecute.

GLAAD’s a strategy that is bound to fail. They made the classic mistake of overreaching (cf. Napoleon’s invasion of Russia).

Two of Duck Dynasty’s sponsors, Under Armor and Skyjacker, have already said they’re sticking with the show. Cracker Barrel, on the other hand, may have forgotten who its customers are. The Robertsons’ home town is solidly behind the family. Walmart and Academy, two of the Duck Commander/DD brands’ largest outlets, show no sign of dropping either. The merch is flying off the shelves. GLAAD’s overreach has made them subjects of mockery and derision, not fear. A&E now looks duplicitous and cowardly, because they are, and the channel is likely to lose its most profitable show. Duck Dynasty could thrive on literally any broadcast outlet. The Robertsons, those rednecks that A&E’s suits expected to mock, don’t even need the show to remain rich. The swamp folks hold all the cards.

Update: Cracker Barrel does an about face.

If Robertson converted to Islam and said that the Koran says homosexuals should be killed, GLAAD wouldn't say a word, because they never do. But Christians can simply state that the Bible tells us that homosexuality is a sin (A sin, not THE sin, to quote Billy Graham) and they get singled out. Typical. And Cat Stevens (Yusef Islam) is elected to the Rock & Roll HOF. Do you think the libs will boycott the induction ceremony?

No, A&E doesn't have the right to fire anyone for anything they want:

There are a number of comments to the effect that the network can do what they want. This is incorrect. They cannot fire or otherwise discriminate against employees or applicants because of their religious beliefs. This is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which specifically prohibits adverse employment decisions based on someone's religious beliefs. Phil was asked about sin and answered based on the teachings and tenants of his religion. This is a prima facia case of religious discrimination and any first year law student will crush A&E in court. And Phil will make another 10 mill. Which he can put towards the creation of his own network....

This is going too far, they are talking about re-education camps now.

In Matthew 7:6, Jesus said, “Don’t give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” When Jesus speaks of holiness he is speaking of two things: public assemblies and law or the law making powers of the legislature. When Jesus is speaking of dogs, he is referring to the Old Testament description of a homosexual or gay male prostitute who are called dogs in Hebrew. Jesus described sound government principles as pearls and treasure. Pigs can only be found outside of Israel in the heathen nations. In summery, Jesus is giving a warning. Don’t hand over sound principles of government (or the formation of government) to heathens because they will trample them under foot as they raise up a despotism, a tyranny. Don’t hand over the law making powers of the state to homosexuals because if you do they will use the law to tear you and society to pieces. Article VIII makes God’s law American law. visit: CHCAFE.WORDPRESS.com
Few Examples.

GLAAD supporters need to withdraw from the group. GLAAD has become both a liability and a target. If gays really want to promote mainstreaming for themselves, organizations like GLAAD are not the way to go.

"We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for GLAAD to sit down with normal, Christian families families in Louisiana and learn about their lives, the values they share, and why normal people believe homosexuals are in peril here and in the after life".

They've repented and apologized. I'm inclined to forgive them.

"Cracker" Barrel didn't have the strength of their convictions, I'll pass on them from now on. Unlike them, I'm sure of myself.

Thomas Jefferson penned an immutable principle in the Declaration of Independence stating that government was instituted in order to secure the inalienable rights as granted by the Creator, and in this same document, it declared a rectitude according to the Supreme Judge. If the government fails to uphold such inalienable, divine God given rights, the people have the right, an obligation, to altar or replace that government. One purpose of government is to uphold the marriage covenant as a binding agreement between one man and one woman; this for the right of procreation. If this covenant is allowed to be violated by prostitution, homosexuality, bestiality or any other violations of the God granted charter then that government entity has lost its sovereignty, its right to rule because it is not fulfilling the mission of its existence. The duty of Christians in Canada is to keep the weekly Sabbath as a public assembly for reviewing the laws of the land and their magistrates according to the standard of God's law and Christ Jesus. Article VIII to the US Constitution restores the marriage covenant. Read it: CHCAFE.WORDPRESS.com

Ever since the 1950's and 60's Stonewall Riots in New York and subsequent rise of Americas "fairies" (today's LGBT)faction, revolutionary Vito Russo had to harness this energy for his political purposes...enter Los Angeles' nascent porn industry. Vito Russo found a new home in San Francisco (ultimately dying from AIDS/HIV). Shortly thereafter was launched "The Advocate" a circular (later magazine) detailing LGBT lifestyle...modern day GLAAD!
From the 1950's until late 2000 this movement festered and went mostly underground save for 1970's and 80's Catholicisms pedophile crisis. See, This coincides with Penn State's young adult sex crisis, too. Enfin, LGBT life style is a travesty and affront  especially to the "ROMANS" AS DETAILED IN NKJV BIBLE. Enter Obama! His political aims were to get as many disparate groups under his mantle and use them exactly as  Soviet Bolsheviks did...then spit them out after their having served their purpose, i.e., 1)greed, 2)power, and 3)absolute corruption(need proof? Look at Chicago's Town Hall meeting this 12/20/13 weekend). Obama will destroy America's Bible, Religion and education. Pay close attention to this "collectivization" of America by Mr. Obama. Pray. Amen. Mr. Obama used the Insurance industry for Obamacare, now they're being put out to pasture...wake-up America! We The People are being played like a fiddle at a 4-H hoe down. Join a Tea Party. GLAAD is just like "The Advocate" except slicker.

GLADD remains mad, doubles down on being bad.....and it's because they're not gay, they're sad. This tempest in a teapot shows the homosexual movement for what it is, a bunch of whiny, shrill pissy little deviants screaming for everyone else to say their behavior is normal.
When the smoke clears, they'll have achieved the unlikely outcome of despite near universal media adoration, making themselves into the absurd caricatures that gays have always battled with. The loudmouths at GLAAD need to take a Midol and crawl back in the closet for time out.

Step one accuse him offending the gay supremacists bible, step two demand the right to have him fired or censored, step three demand he attend communist re-education camps to ensure he learns to love the gaystopo lifestyle. Their goal is to simply humiliate him with the hope it will teach the majority in America never to murmur a peep that offends their fascists little souls-if they had them. I for one tell GLAAD to jump off a short pier go hockey puck your radical self and if that doesn't send my message of contempt nothing will.

I bet a box of steel shot duck loads that a meeting betweenPhil Robertson and represenatatives from GLAAD would not go the way GLAAD thinks. In fact, I doulbe the bet that GLAAD would make matters worse by trying to double down on Phil.
Phil is way too old, cagey, grounded to be taken in by them. Think of it as shooting ducks in a barrell.
