Duck Dynasty Star: ‘Homosexuality Is A Sin’
It’s no accident that the political right embraces “Duck Dynasty” as the best show on television.
Phil Robertson — the 67-year-old star of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” (photo, center) — is under fire after anti-gay comments he made in a new interview with GQ magazine.
Robertson began by explaining, “We’re Bible-thumpers who just happened to end up on television.”
“You put in your article that the Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off,” he continued.
And he was just getting warmed up.
“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 says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
Phil continues, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Phil’s son is a chip off the old block.
Jep Robertson, Phil’s son, doesn’t explicitly tell GQ that he agrees with his father’s sentiments, but he doesn’t disagree, explaining: “We’re not quite as outspoken as my dad, but I’m definitely in line. If somebody asks, I tell ’em what the Bible says.”
