Daystar Offers 'Duck Dynasty' Prime Time TV Slot

Just days after Phil Robertson’s biblical beliefs regarding homosexuality were made public, Daystar has extended an offer to air Duck Dynasty during prime-time hours.

See: http://northwoodsministries.blogspot.ca/2013/12/duck-dynasty-star-suspended-for-calling.html for original story.

“My wife, Joni, and I are standing with Mr. Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty for family values and biblical values,” says Marcus Lamb, founder and CEO of Daystar Television Network. “Our American constitution guarantees its citizens freedom of speech and freedom of religion. As a result, Daystar Television Network is offering a primetime slot to Duck Dynasty.”

Daystar stands with Phil Robertson, and believes that Christianity should not be shut out of the media conversation. If A&E refuses to recognize Phil Robertson’s personal Christian beliefs, then he, along the rest of the Duck Dynasty family, is welcome on Daystar.

"Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson was suspended "indefinitely" from the A&E show following anti-gay remarks he made in an interview with GQ, but a new statement from his family hints that the future of the entire show is now at risk as long as he's gone.

"Phil would never incite or encourage hate," the
Robertson family wrote in the statement posted to their Duck Commander website. "We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right."
Now the rest of the Robertsons might just be ready to take a voluntary hiatus if the situation stays the same.

"We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm," they said.

The Robertsons are now in talks with A&E to find out just "what that means for the future" of "Duck Dynasty."
