“The stars of ‘Duck Dynasty’ might be America's most popular TV family, but that could change very soon — because Phil Robertson has made some strong (and seriously offensive) anti-gay remarks that have sparked instant backlash.
“Speaking with GQ, Robertson lamented that when ‘everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong ... sin becomes fine.’ So just what qualifies as sinful in his book?
"’Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there — bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,’ he declared.”
(“… but that could change very soon …” Not bloody likely, Liz. And what’s with this “(seriously offensive) anti-gay remarks?” Every comment that upholds one belief has to be “anti-gay,” doesn’t it. Nothing can he pro- the other side. No, sir, bubba. You believe one way and one way only, or you are anti-gay.)
Homosexuals did not waste any time coming out with their own shots.
“’Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,’ said GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz. ‘He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. Phil's decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.’"
(Oh, bullshit, Wilson. Lies? So homosexual men do not do the kind of sex Phil Robertson described?)
