Duck Dynasty Family Statement and Online Poll:

The Robertson Family, stars of the mega-hit TV show Duck Dynasty released a statement today about the "firing" of the family father, Phil Robertson:
"We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.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. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
- Robertson Family

You are a bit confused in the language used in the polling question, it is not a First Amendment issue. The First Amendment protects us from government intrusion in our right to free speech, not from private scrutiny or response. A&E was wrong in its actions against Phil, and the public backlash is proving this out, but it is A&E's right to do so as Phil's employer.
