    I can understand where the Judge came to his decision using the 14th amendment. It is clear under Section 1 for Due Process that no State may impose a law infringing upon the life and liberty of a US Citizen from establishing his/her home. Read the 14th amendment on Wikipedia. This may go to the Supreme Court, but I doubt that they will even hear it. The 14th amendment protects this and it is probably the reason why so many States are allowing passage of allowing gay marriage recognition. The Mormon Church in Salt Lake City are going crazy over this ruling. How many Mormons does it take to reinforce the ban on Gay marriage in Utah? Sounds like the ole, "how many -------does it take to screw in a light bulb". This is going to be fun to watch in the coming months. Homophobes beware their coming for you. Oh no!

    So, Mr. Homophobe Duck Robertson, you can attempt to express your free speech and no State. Local, Federal authority may deny that freedom for you, but A&E can tell you how far you can take a flying leap. A&E is not a Local, State or Federal authority. I wonder when Tennessee and Kentucky will cater to allowing gay marriage recognition? Deep in the heart of Dixie, comes Homophobia! Oh no! Git ready to duck, Duck Robertson.

    Although I'm not gay, but I do know some gay friends and respect them for who they are.....people. I'll have fun with this issue because I'm expressing my free speech, just like Duck Robertson. Unless "The Democratic Hub", fires me, than this is my last post.

    Amc I don't know if you saw the news today but according to Huffington Post A&E is going to be airing new episodes of Duck Dynasty in January featuring Mr Phil. Yes it seems that Phil Robertson himself will be in the new shows starting January 15th. That could change, I guess, but today that is the plan.

    That begs the questions...

    Did A&E just make their suspension announcement purely for show (and political correctness)?

    Did A&E sell out for the profits?

    Is MONEY the overriding factor in EVERYTHING in Hollywood/show business?

    I also heard that the security had been beefed up at A&E headquarters due to threats. (Where's the tolerance?)

    It must be all about the "MONEY". Maybe, just maybe, Ducky Robertson was in on a plan to raise the ratings. If he is coming back in January, I would think that the ratings would hit the top. What a plan. The American public is so gullible and easy to program. We're just dumb TV idiots ready for the folly of TV producers.

    It about the money all right, either partly or maybe completely about the money. Whether ..."Ducky Robertson was in on a plan to raise the ratings"... or not is a good question. I think it is more likely that the bean counters at A&E told the top brass how much money they would lose if Duck Dynasty was no longer on their network. When top management saw the $numbers$ the decision was easy to keep the show on the air. Money is more important than hypocrisy nearly every time.

    Yes, I would guess that the new shows in January will have record ratings because there's no such thing as bad publicity. I still do not plan to watch, but many will tune in just to see what all the fuss is about.

    Why GQ? THAT's the question. Is there a more unlikely pairing than the Duck Dynasty boys and GQ?

    ..."The American public is so gullible and easy to program"... Well yes, always have been and always will be. Just look at the crooks and scoundrels that the American public elect and reelect to public office. Politics and show biz are very similiar: sell the image, perception is reality, tell the folks what they want to hear, and MONEY runs and ruins both industries.
