Americans and Bono Have Spoken

 
 
In a statement released Friday, the network said "We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold. But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family, a family that America has come to love."
"After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family."

Then Bono quieted the throng and introduced the final song: “For the child who was born…in the straw of poverty, I would like to sing an actual carol.”
 
With that Bono began intoning “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
 
The out-of-control crowd, once in a frenzy, demonstrated a noticeable shift in tone, especially as they sing along with Bono the well-known chorus: “O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord.”
