Phil Robertson Of “Duck Dynasty” Compares Homosexuality To Beastiality, Compares Gays To Terrorists

Phil Robertson, star of  the reality show “Duck Dynasty” that people actually watch, told GQ that he believes gays are sinners who  ”won’t inherit the kingdom of God.” In his interview with the magazine, Robertson also put homosexuality in a category with “terrorists” and “drunks.”

Well then.

GQ asked what Robertson considered sinful. He answered:

“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.”

Robertson also had some oh-so-insightful commentary about anuses and vaginas:

“It seems 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.”

Robertson then claimed it’s not his job to judge others:

“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus — whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

How magnanimous of him!

According to Robertson, “Duck Dynasty” has long downplayed his conservative Christian religious beliefs. He’s also been seen speaking out against abortion this year, which came as a surprise to many fans of the show. A&E, the network behind “Duck Dynasty,” was asked for a comment by The Wrap, and sent along a follow-up statement from Robertson while the network itself remained silent:

I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.

Alienating a huge portion of the country doesn’t exactly make for “loving” behavior, nor is it respectful to compare gays to drunks or terrorists. (Also? Drunks are like terrorists? Really?)

All this time I’d thought “Duck Dynasty” was just an innocent show about, well, ducks! Unfortunately, it seems that bigotry lives even in the places we would last think to look.
