Another political name is coming to the defense of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson. Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz both spoke out against Robertson’s suspension by the A&E network over comments the Duck Commander patriarch made in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality. But Alabama State Senator Jerry Fielding is the first who plans to take the situation to the government level.
According to the Daily Home, Fielding will present a Senate resolution supporting Robertson for sharing his “biblically correct values,” as Fielding believes A&E’s suspension shows the net “bowed to pressure from liberal groups.”
“Phil Robertson’s family values are shared by the vast majority of Alabamians, who are rightfully concerned by the vitriol aimed at his Christian stance,” Fielding says in a press release. “There’s a clear double standard in the media favoring a liberal worldview.”
Should the resolution pass, it wouldn’t mean much more than the state legislature stands behind Robertson and his family, opposing A&E’s suspension for “relaying his Christian beliefs.” It sure beats solving the budget crisis.
