Willie already went on air and established that all is well with A&E. A jump to a Christian channel would be a highly questionable idea. I am not
particularly religious. Most other people I know who enjoy the show are not particularly religious. The show is not particularly religious.
They are doing a great job by leading by example rather than shouting Christianity from the rooftops. People watch them and enjoy because, much to
"progressive" bigots' chagrin, they speak to genuine values like the importance of family, community, civility, and decency. As well as good old
fashioned ruggedness. Of course, most of the situations on the show are fabricated, but the genuine quality of the folks shines through as the
interactions and how they treat each other seems genuine. I doubt that is what A&E was going for as most of shows depicting rural Southerners are
manufactured to cater to the small minded insecurity of "progressives". Watching a "progressive" squirm as intelligent people around them discuss the
show in terms other than condescending is actually quite entertaining.
I love the family prayer at the end and I love how they obviously put family first, but if the show got too preachy and Christian, I'd stop watching
as would a huge percentage of the viewers.
Most of us sided with Phil because his suspension exposed the intense intolerance, ignorance, elitism, and bigotry of the "progressive" gatekeepers in
much of the mainstream media as well as the lies, slant, and propaganda they use to demonize anyone who does not march in lockstep with their largely
regressive, illogical, and authoritarian belief system. Religions hate competition, which is why "progressives" hate Christianity.
Some Christians have taken the wrong lesson. It does not mean that Americans want Christianity forced on them the way that the lame "progressive"
religion currently is.
The Robertsons won. Keep the show the same and if they do end up leaving A&E, they should stay on a regular network like Spike or CMT.
