A&E's decision came five days after Cracker Barrel quickly reversed itself after facing an avalanche of customer complaints when it pulled Duck Dynasty merchandise off its shelves.

Tehran Defies Obama
Remember Obama's much-hyped nuclear deal with Iran, announced just before Thanksgiving? It was supposed to delay Iran's nuclear program for six months, allowing time to negotiate a more comprehensive agreement. Predictably, the mullahs are using the time to their advantage.

The Greatest Gift Ever Given
I recently ran across a depressing PBS news report. It was headlined: "Move Over 'O Holy Night,' Only Half Of Americans See Christmas As Religious."

Duck Dynasty Controversy Continues

When asked by GQ about his views on homosexuality, Robertson quoted Scripture and, as his many fans appreciate, he elaborated in his own colorful way.
