Time To Duck And Cover?
I admit that I love junk television ... Gold Rush, Swamp People, Bering Sea Gold, Deadliest Catch, Full Throttle Saloon ... You name it, I've probably watched it.
For whatever reason, I've never really gotten into Duck Dynasty. It's always struck me as being kind of dumb ... but I like "Swamp People" so who am I to judge?
Anyway, A&E has suspended Phil Robertson, the head of the family featured on Duck Dynasty, for anti-gay comments Robertson made during an interview with GQ.
In essence, Robertson said that he believes homosexuality is sinful - and then some. For example, he opined "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men".
So, should A&E have dumped Robertson for expressing his beliefs on the issue? What should other cast members do? Who will be the big loser in this dust up?
We'll discuss the Duck Dynasty flap during the 2 p.m. hour of today's show. Please feel free to leave a comment and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the converation.
