Select Phil Robertson (Duck Commander) As Speaker For The 2014 FC Leadership Dinner

We, the signatories of this petition, hereby request to the Florida College administration and Leadership Dinner committee that Mr. Phil Robertson (aka Duck Commander) be selected as guest speaker for the 2014 Florida College Leadership Dinner. We believe Mr. Robertson is qualified in every aspect of leadership that is the basis for the event. The following are a partial list of his accomplishments: All-State in Football, Baseball, & Track in High School Won a football scholarship to Louisiana Tech University where he was the starting quarterback - ahead of Terry Bradshaw, the quarterback who would go on to win 4 Super Bowls in the NFL. Although scouted by NFL teams, chose to follow his passion instead of advance to the NFL. Earned a Master's Degree in education and taught for several years. Invented a duck call in 1972 that revolutionized the duck hunting industry and is still considered the best available. "Duck Commander", his family business, has since grown to a multi-million dollar empire. Now has a television series on A&E called "Duck Dynasty" that has garnered over 4 million viewers and counting. Duck Dynasty is perhaps the only reality TV show - and only show on TV - that promotes Godly morality and a God-centered, functional family. And finally, his greatest achievement: He is an elder in the Lord's Church. For all of these reasons, we see no reason why Mr. Phil Robertson would not make an ideal guest speaker at the 2014 Leadership Dinner. With ticket prices going up, there is a necessity that the guest speaker be qualified as well as familiar to the audience, and Mr. Robertson lacks neither. Thus, we hereby request that Mr. Phil Robertson be seriously considered and/or selected for the 2014 Florida College Leadership Dinner.

  • Juanita Arbuckle I stand with Phil Robertson and his family. Christian people know he loves everyone, and we know what he meant and what he said. Others can make like he was being wrong, but again: Phil loves all people!!!!!!!

  • Debbie Kincer I support Phil Roberson's Christian values and his right to freedom of speech. Gays are going to have to face it. Not everyone is going to agree with or support their lifestyle. You can;t make people support it either. If you are gay and that's the life you choose then get over it! People are going to have their opinion about it. If someone don't agree with a gay persons lifestyles it doesn't mean they are hate mongers. If you have a problem with someone voicing their belief, maybe you should check your soul, could be you may feel conviction!
