A&E was hit by a 12-gauge “Duck Dynasty” backlash Thursday as religious and conservative groups denounced the network for suspending the reality show’s gay-bashing star — whose family suggested it could be the end.
Supporters of show patriarch Phil Robertson — who in a magazine interview compared homosexuality to bestiality — called for a boycott of the cable network.
“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana,” declared Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of the state where the show is filmed. “The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with.”
“It is a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh and Phil Robertson gets suspended.”

Good for them. They are financially secure and don't need to compromise their beliefs for a buck. Will be interesting to see the heads roll at A&E when the inevitable reckoning comes.
