Tolerance is not enough; YOU MUST APPROVE. The Junior Volunteer Thought Police feel pretty good about themselves for standing up to the bearded badman's doubleplusungood crimethink that hurt their feelings. Here's the thing though: Duck Dynasty wasn't the Robertson family's livelihood. I'm sure they appreciated getting paid to be themselves, but they were happy and successful doing their thing long before A&E came into the picture.
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 seriously divisive 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.Phil probably should have cut himself off at this point (considering he's a national TV star), but instead he paraphrased 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," he warned. "Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."What's more, according to him, it's basically incomprehensible. "It seems to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man's anus," he explained. "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."Within minutes of GQ revealing Robertson's quotes (which will appear in the January issue), GLAAD issued a fiery response — and the gay-rights organization is none too pleased.
I seriously doubt the Robertsons' give a rat's hindquarters about being the object of the scalzied manboobs' and spinster warpigs' latest self-congratulatory crusade against what most normal people have always believed. That's a good response whenever the Cathedral has you in its crosshairs. An even better response is to laugh in their faces. For the record, I think sodomy is both disgusting and gravely sinful. What are you nancies going to do about it, cry?
I see what you're saying sir, but it won't ever be good enough for the Cathedral's house eunuchs. Never, ever, ever back down when they make you a target.Despite Phil's strong words, however, he insists he's a Christian who doesn't condemn others — even if they are "sinners" in his mind."We never, ever judge someone on who's going to heaven, hell. That's the Almighty's job," he told the magazine. "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?"
