Who didn't see this one coming? A&E "caved" following their little publicity stunt and brought back Duck Dynasty's patriarch, Phil Robertson from his nonexistent suspension. So we all know what what that means, right? The bigots are coming out of the woodwork to celebrate over at Fox.
First one out of the box was hate group The Family Research Council's resident homophobe, Tony Perkins, who told Megyn Kelly fill-in Shannon Bream this Friday that it's a wonderful thing he and his fellow haters stood up to those big bad bullies over at GLAAD.
Here's more from Joe.My.God. with his press release: Tony Perkins Celebrates:
"The attacks on Phil Robertson revealed to the American people that the push to redefine marriage is less about the marriage altar than it is fundamentally altering America's moral, political and cultural landscape. A&E Network's reversal in the face of backlash is quite telling to the American people who are growing tired of GLAAD and cultural elites who want to silence people and remove God and His word from every aspect of public life.
"The goal of GLAAD is to silence anyone who dare challenge the idea that homosexuality is normal. However, the Robertson family's refusal to cower to GLAAD's bullying and the ensuing backlash to the suspension, unlike anything since Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, finally forced A&E Network to withdraw the suspension. We've also seen these intimidation tactics used against wedding florists, bakers, photographers who have been hauled into court, fined and even ordered to violate their religious beliefs by participating in same-sex weddings.
"Where is the fairness there? Where's the tolerance? There is none. This is why hundreds of thousands of Americans had enough and took a stand by signing petitions in support of Phil Robertson and the right of Christians to quote the Bible." - KKK-affiliated hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.
