‘Duck Dynasty’ star slammed over anti-gay rant
The New York Post ^ | December 18, 2013 | Andrea Morabito

Posted on 12/18/2013 10:51:39 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Phil Robertson, patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” clan, is being slammed for controversial comments he made about homosexuality in an interview in the January issue of GQ.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson told the magazine. “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.”

When the reporter asked Robertson what he found sinful, he said “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.”

The self-proclaimed Bible-thumper then went on to paraphrase 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.”(continued)

The man is entitled to his personal beliefs. He was not saying gays should be rounded up and done away with.

Nothing. Not a damn thing.

Remember, kids, in a time of universal deceit (thanks to our fascist leftist deviants and their apologists and enforcers), telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Sounds to me like he quoted or paraphrased I Corinthians 6:9-10. It wasn’t just his personal opinion. If that’s the case, GLAAD’s beef isn’t with him, it’s with the Bible:

1 Corinthians 6:8-10
New International Version (NIV)

8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. 9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Footnotes:
a.1 Corinthians 6:9 The words men who have sex with men translate two Greek words that refer to the passive and active participants in homosexual acts.

>> What did he say that was incorrect?

His antagonists are essentially equating the anus with the vulva. That’s twisted. And it’s the major network, A&E, that’s championing the misogyny.

Defending sodomy is the only correct position in the liberal world. So unless Robertson accepts the thought if anal sex between two men as being normal he is wrong in the eyes of the left. That is how disgustingly perverted society has become.

Welcome to Obama's America.

I also object to Murdoch's Post characterizing the truth as articulated by Mr. Robertson as a rant. This is a dismissive term implying what he said were the ravings of a madman. This is just further proof that Murdoch and his vast empire (with muzzie investors in key positions) aren't allies to Conservatives or Christians.

What you stated in another post, GeronL, needs to be become a reality. A FreeRepublic television network. Mr. Robertson and our own Mr. Robinson would be a formidable duo on the side of Truth, speaking out for American Exceptionalism and Godly Principles.

Yes, but to hear gays tell the story of Sodom and Gomorrhah, they claim that the "real" sin was being "rude".

Not the way I've read it.

The gays wanted to "know" the angels, as in having sex with them.

That is the accepted version of "know" in the Bible.

As far as I understand it, gays have never challenged this interpretation of "know".

And that is a VERY gentle description of what the homosexuals REALLY wanted to do.

I'm not a Biblical scholar, but the intent was quite clear.

And I've never heard of God destroying an entire city over "rudeness".

Perhaps someone can clarify if I'm wrong.

A&E can go to Hell ! Why is it that Homosexuals can force their perverted aborrant beliefs upon us, but our beliefs which are based in logic and reason are treated as criminal.

It is long past time to wage all out war on the MSM, "fundamental change" would do society some good

Thanks very much. When liberals refer to us a Bible thumpers, I take it as a badge of honor even though it's a pejorative term in their mind. It's much like being branded a McCarthyite. As it turns out, the Senator was 100% right when it came to the commie menace posed by the fifth columnists. Heck, being described as "narrow minded" is similarly a compliment even though leftists mean otherwise.

Enter through the gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.

Matthew 7:13

Putting ALL the other admonitions, (of which there are many,) in the Bible aside, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah is the MOST illustrative of G-d’s utter abhorrence of, and contempt for, homosexuality.
There is no way of getting around it as it is profoundly clear exactly why G-d destroyed this abomination.

In the long ago, the psalmist said it well: “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” (127:1). Make no mistake: the day is coming when America will be punished, and the reason will be apparent: “Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers...and embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this calamity on them” (2 Chronicles 7:22).

“Heck, being described as “narrow minded” is similarly a compliment even though leftists mean otherwise.”

G.K. Chesterton said that the purpose of an open mind is to close it, eventually, upon the truth.

We should all contact A&E and let them know what we think! Be sure to include that you will be contacting their sponsors and informing them that you will no longer buy their products or services as long as they continue to advertise on a network that stifles free speech.

I’m sorry, a couple people are up in arms over his comments. And glancing at the boycott A&E until Phil is reinstated in the show facebook page, there’s over 203,000 likes in a little over 5 hours.

Seems like the only one being slammed here is A&E. Contemplate this, A&E - When Duck Dynasty premiered this season, there were 11 million viewers, a record for a cable show. Nearly two percent of those viewers have so far said they intend to boycott your network.

Those are numbers that should darken the underwear of any network executive. Think what will happen when people are actually awake tomorrow.

Yes. Agree with your link.

Jesus never spoke about abortion, carjacking, the knockout game, wanting to have sex with angels, banging groupies, smoking pot, etc.

That does NOT mean he approved of such behavior.

He was a very learned Rabbi.

If he was living in Brooklyn today, no doubt he would condemn such behavior.

He would call ALL of these SINS.

And we know from Scripture, that he would FORGIVE such sins.

The kicker is he would say "Go and sin no more!"

That is the final analysis.

..it’s the libtards ways of trying to destroy a popular show that ends every episode with a prayer. GQ set up the interview to target Phil knowing full well his views. A show with American values and popularity... CAN’T NOT BE ALLOWED.

I don’t know how true this is but I ave read that Willie and his wife are the ones who really enjoy being on TV. I don’t think the others really care as much.Did you know Si is married for over 40 years and has a daughter. They wanted nothing to do with the show from what I have read.

When it comes to the women in my life and relationships with women in general, I think the Duckster could have well avoided such blatant crudity, but when it come to the sex act itself and the workings of the primordial part of the brain that drives most men to lust after what is essentially the region of a woman’s body that is her sewer system, then the good duck-man was just speaking the honest truth. This illogical, but very necessary attraction between man and woman is what keeps us going as a species.

Homosexual attraction is an abnormal (about 2-3 percent), but perfectly natural aberration to normal human sexuality. What people do and act out in their own private lives is only up God to judge, but I cannot abide being forced to condone such behavior. Homosexuality is degenerate, sexuality is private and promiscuity of any persuasion breeds disease and social chaos. Please keep it to yourselves and stay out of my face about it.

You need to consider that they are under contract.

We don’t know what kind of/how long ... the contract they signed is.

If A and E broke the contract by doing this to Phil...then MAYBE the family has an out.

How was that comment “anti-gay?” He didn’t take a position that he hated homosexuals... He merely responded to a question and expressed a viewpoint that he didn’t understand how a man could not desire relations with a woman.

Nothing like whipping up a firestorm to marginalized these people. The leftards aren’t offended the gleeful at the opportunity act offended.

The reality of it is that males have this wild man operating in his carnal nature. The male is willing to screw anything animate or inanimate. However, our civilization, since Judaism’s prohibition of non-marital sex in the Torah, tries to keep under control that wild man. You can imagine what kind of activity would occur if the restrictions were taken away and males could have sex with animals, parent-child incest and all nature of unchanneled sex. There is one thing for certain, the offspring would be the last thing of concern (except as a sexual outlet). Queer marriage is just one step into the abyss of unrestricted sexual appetite.
