"A source close to the show tells FOX411 that even if Robertson apologized, at this point, A&E is done with him."
What is it exactly that A&E feels that Phil Robertson should apologize for and why? Personally, I don't think HE is the one who needs to be apologizing.
GLAAD owes him an apology for making a mountain out of a mole hill. Robertson expressed his opinion on sin and used the Bible as his reference and GLAAD totally - but typically - overreacted with a response that was truly vile. But, GLAAD doesn't care about that; they are only interested in bullying or intimidating anyone who doesn't agree with them into silence. They want the public to understand and support gay rights but they apparently don't care to understand those who have religious objections.
For the same reason, A&E owes him an apology for not sitting down with him and discussing the matter before they pompously handed down their royal decree to get rid of him. They have made millions of dollars of profit off of his show which reflects the Robertsons' conservative Christian values and then to turn around and bar him from his own show because he expresses his conservative Christian beliefs is shameless and hypocritical.
The Robertsons were wealthy before Duck Dynasty came along and they'll do well if the show ends. It's A&E who will suffer the most and, at this point, I believe that they deserve it.
