‘Duck Dynasty’ won’t go homeless, thanks to a religious TV network

Aw, here’s a heartwarming story just in time for the holidays. Thanks to Hunt Channel — a Christian television network that markets almost exclusively in reality shows about Bible-lovin’, gun-totin’ folks who kill defenseless creatures for sport — “Duck Dynasty” will not go homeless if A&E decides to drop it on its redneck butt.

A lot of people are calling for the network to pull the plug on “Duck Dynasty” — improbably one of the highest rated reality shows of all time (proof, I think, of the rapid decline of our intelligence as a society thanks to the Internet and sexting and global warming or whatever) — after patriarch and head douche in charge Phil Robertson’s recent eloquent musings on homosexuality. And, apparently, the other “Duck Dynasty” cast members are among them.

Robertson’s brood of fellow people who like to make the duckies go bye bye with the boom boom stick have his back, and have recently gone on record saying that they don’t want to do the show without him.

Fortunately, the Hunt Channel is making it their business to ensure that they won’t have to. A Christmas miracle!

According to a TMZ report, Hunt channel owner Merrill Sport thinks that A&E should “put on their big boy pants” and support the cast of Duck Dynasty for the unapologetic bigots they are. Further, Sport is more than happy to put on his own pair of big kid trousers and air the show himself. Because, at Hunt Channel, he says, “we don’t censor our personalities.”

Meaning, I guess, Hunt Channel lets their people spit as much hateful bile as they want. First Amendment and whatnot. Give them liberty or give them death! (Give them either, I could care less, either way. But first, maybe, give them some teeth and worldview that isn’t rooted in ancient mythology/idiocy.)
