Furor continues over Phil Robertson’s suspension from A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” with the family breaking its silence on Thursday to say that the show might not go on without the patriarch’s involvement.
With uncertainty abounding, the “I Stand With Phil” movement continues to build, as hundreds of thousands of Christian consumers and free speech advocates urge the network to rethink its decision.
Faith Driven Consumer, a project that rates just how “faith-friendly” popular retailers are, has taken center stage in the debate, launching IStandWithPhil.com, a website devoted to convincing A&E that reinstating Robertson is the right thing to do.
TheBlaze interviewed founder Chris Stone to learn more about his goals in forging the effort.
“A&E is eliminating the viewpoints of their Christian audience, and we stepped in to provide an opportunity for Faith Driven Consumers to be heard by A&E, and to claim their place in the American rainbow of diversity,” Stone told TheBlaze.
