The battle for Duck Dynasty is ON!

America LOVES Duck Dynasty! On the A&E Network it's the #1 draw, pulling in as many as 14 million viewers per episode.

The CD the Robertsons recorded, "Duck the Halls", was the No. 1 country album on Billboard for the month of November.

Wal-Mart announced at their annual shareholders meeting that the best-selling item of apparel for both men and women this year was the reality show's T-shirt.

When family patriarch Phil Robertson was interviewed by GQ magazine, he aired his opinions about God, hunting, and a number of other topics including homosexuality. He described homosexuality as "sinful" and that comment was enough for A&E Network to ban him from the show.

GQ's writer ends his article by saying:

"It’s the direction he would like to point everyone: back to the woods. Back to the pioneer spirit. Back to God. 'Why don’t we go back to the old days?' he asked me at one point. But now, I’m afraid, I must get out of the ATV and go back to where I belong, back to the godless part of America that Phil is determined to save."

Phil founded the family business, Duck Commander, and is the core of the family itself. The family has said that they "can't imagine going forward" with the show without him.

Americans everywhere are reacting A&E's censorship of Phil Robertson's first amendment rights. A Facebook page urging a boycott of A&E has acquired 1.5 MILLION fans ("likes") with more than 100,000 added just this morning.

There's also an online petition that already has 130,000 signatures.
