Si the Christmas Elf

Si Robertson and Ashley Howard Nelson,  Korie Robertson’s sister, have created Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages that are featuring a daily picture of Si taking a nap.   The pages are countdowns to Christmas and promise to lead to a surprise after the 365 days of pictures.   I’m not sure what the surprise is, but Si has already begun to display some of the photos.

This short video on YouTube explains the whole thing:

He’s Back! Phil Robertson Reinstated

After less than  two weeks, A&E TV network has lifted Phil Robertson’s suspension from the Duck Dynasty show.  Phil’s comments about homosexuality in an interview with GQ Magazine landed him in hot water with the network after gay rights advocacy groups, including GLAAD,  complained, and they suspended him indefinitely on Dec 18, 2013.  Now, just 10 days later, the network has reversed its decision after a huge outcry of Duck Dynasty supporters.  A&E released a statement saying that Phil  made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate” and therefore “A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.”

A&E also said, “Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views...

A Little Late…

After 47 years of marriage, Phil Robertson has finally done the honorable thing and has gotten Miss Kay a wedding ring. Sadie Robertson, Phil and Kay’s granddaughter Tweeted “After 50 years of marriage Papaw Phil finally gave Mamaw Kay a wedding ring for Christmas” and included a picture of Miss Kay showing off the ring and Phil proudly pointing to it.

Earlier this year on the Duck Dynasty show, Phil and Kay renewed their wedding vows and had the wedding ceremony that they never had 47 years ago. Apparently, even in the renewal, Phil didn’t give Kay a ring. Oh well, I guess it’s better late than never…

Phil Robertson Not Backing Off

The Daily Mail is reporting that Phil Robertson will not “give or back off”.   On Sunday, Phil ended the Bible study class he led with a prayer that include “I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions.”

Earlier in the class, someone thanked him for saying what he said in the GQ Magazine article that got him in trouble with gay rights groups.  His response was “I didn’t think much of it at all, but it seems a lot of other people did.”

Phil defended his comments by saying,  “I am just reading what was written over 2,000 years ago. Those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom. All I did was quote from the scriptures, but they just didn’t know it...

Cracker Barrel Reverses Its Decision

Cracker Barrel has reversed its earlier decision to remove Duck Dynasty items from its shelves. On Saturday they wrote “We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.” Now they have re-evaluated that decision and will be returning the items to their shelves. “When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done,” the company wrote. “You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. People weren’t shy. They wrote, called and took to social media.”

So it appears that joining forces and letting your opinion be known does work to change things sometimes...

All in God’s Hands

Since the Robertson clan is vocal about their religious beliefs, it stands to reason that many of their fans feel the same way. Since the suspension of Phil Robertson, many of the fans of the show have posted comments and emailed us about what they think of this whole mess. It appears that the common theme in the replies is GOd. If fact, Sadie Robertson, granddaughter of Phil and a member of the cast of Duck Dynasty, had this say in a tweet on Thursday:


Missy Robertson, cast member and wife of Jase tweeted this:

Phil Robertson Suspended From Duck Dynasty Indefinitely

Phil Robertson and been suspended from the Duck Dynasty show  for an indefinite period of time according to A&E Television.   Comments he made in GQ Magazine article sparked outrage in the gay and lesbian community, with GLAAD demanding to know if A&E supported Phil’s comments (see “GLAAD Not Happy, Happy, Happy”).   A&E released a statement saying “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and phil-robertsonchampions of the LGBT community.”

I’m interested to see how this all pans out.  Duck Dynasty is A&E’s top show and Phil Robertson is its biggest star...

GLAAD Not Happy, Happy, Happy

It looks like Phil Robertson has gotten himself in a bit of trouble with the gay rights groups.  In a magazine article published in the January 2013 GQ magazine, Phil speaks his mind like he always does, and says that homosexuality is sin and that it is illogical.

Phil said  “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong.  Sin becomes fine.  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,” he tells the magazine. Paraphrasing Corinthians, he says, “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself...
