Duck Dynasty won because Phil Robertson’s family refused to continue without him. A & E said its core company values were “inclusion & mutual respect. ” What Robertson said didn’t conflict with those values but they offended some people and rightly so. How can we have a genuine conversation about issues of race and sexuality if we silence voices with whom we disagree?
Of note for us is what Jesus said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand. ” A&E was a house divided and they retracted their decision. This is a lesson for us as a people, we need to stand together towards some common goals in 2014. We need to refuse to compromise even if others are offended. Dr. King taught, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything! ”
Take a stand in 2014!
