Today Duck Dynasty's patriarch, Phil Robertson, took some heat after bits from GQ Magazine's January 2014 edition made their way to news feeds around the web. When asked what his definition of sinful behavior was, Robertson, who is 67 years old, likened homosexuality to bestiality. He further compared homosexuals to 'swindlers', 'adulterers', 'idolaters', among other things.
"It seems to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man's anus," Robertson said. "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 Robertson claims to be a man of faith yet uses the name of God to diminish what strong, spiritual relationships humans may have by playing the anus-versus-vagina card. If his wife's vagina grew shut tomorrow, I wonder what hole he'd be hitting. I suppose he could quote something from the Bible that would justify some ass-tappin'.
A&E, a huge supporter of gay rights, took swift action and placed Robertson on indefinite 'hiatus'. The reality show has been a ratings-buster for the cable network in recent months. A&E are understandably disappointed. The next season, however, may feature portions featuring Phil Robertson that have already been filmed.
Also in GQ Magazine, Robertson, says he picked cotton side-by-side with blacks pre Civil Rights movement and never heard one complain. This, of course, would be a ridiculous statement. Of course they wouldn't say shit! They were too afraid to get hung and/or beaten!
Without doubt there will be more fallout in coming days. Let's just hope this swamp rat stays where he belongs and keeps his Klan mouth shut.
