Phil Robertson Will Not Be Featured In GLADD Anytime Soon

phil robertsonThe Duck Dynasty family claim to be lovers of all things hunting and Jesus.  They cover themselves in doe piss so they can kill their dinner, and then pray over the dead carcass before they chow down.  They are also funny in a backwoods, “Gosh we are SO dang country!” way, which is why their show has become so incredibly popular.

And while it isn’t surprising to learn that patriarch, Phil Robertson, isn’t a fan of homosexuality, it’s his incredibly hateful and ignorant interview with GQ magazine that has caused a massive shit storm.  Oh, he also doesn’t really believe that the civil right’s movement needed to happen, because every black guy he encountered picking cotton in the fields with him was super duper thrilled to be a human slave!

Someone’s publicist obviously didn’t do their job right before this interview was printed.

 

Phil Robertson did an interview with GQ magazine because they are trying to fill their non-metrosexual quota last minute.   The interviewer, Drew Margary, trekked all the way to the swampy woodland that is the Robertson home to do the piece.   Phil took him hunting of course, because what interview isn’t complete without participating in an unfair attack on Bambi’s mom.

Within a few minutes of talking, the bullshit and the insanity just started falling out of Robertson’s mouth.  Let’s tackle his “No Homos Allowed” rant.

“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.”

Ok, now you could look at this part and say to yourself that Phil is simply expressing that he just doesn’t get why anyone would be gay.  He loves himself some vagina, and he just cannot wrap his head around a little butt sex.  While not the most PC statement, it’s not terribly offensive.  But then Robertson just has to keep going to the point where the line of acceptability is a mere haze in the horizon.

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong.  Sin becomes fine. 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.”

And here we go with the total fuckery.  Because being a dude and loving another dude is totes the same thing as butt fucking a sheep.   I don’t know if you all knew this, but homosexuality is also known as the “gateway” sin, and as soon as us heathens start saying that it’s okay, we are basically two fuck ups away from letting pedophilia and blowing up churches become legal.

But don’t worry, while Phil has no problem letting you know he thinks you are a disgusting sodomite who is going to burn for eternity in the fire depths of hell, he won’t exactly be mean to your face about it.  Teaching hateful beliefs is the Christian thing to do, but being a meanie meanie poo poo face is not part of the job description.

“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?”

Did you hear that Anderson Cooper?  You may be just as terrible as Osama Bin Laden, but the Robertson’s will leave all the judging up to the Big Guy Upstairs!  Yay for you!

“All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I’ll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That’s eighty years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups.”

I am just going to respond to that with the words “The Crusades” and say that Phil’s major in college was obviously not history.

As if Phil didn’t offend enough people, he decided he also wanted to let everyone know that he thinks the Civil Rights movement was a joke and totally unnecessary.  He saw black people singing tunes and smiling, therefore all that talk of racism was about as real as a fairy tale.

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

Oh, so because Phil Robertson didn’t see the complete mistreatment and abuse that people of color had to endure, that obviously means it never happened.  And I guess they were “Godly” in his eyes since it was his Christian brethren who advocated for owning people as slaves, since that is what their dear old Bible said was the right thing to do.  So of course they were Godly, they were fulfilling their part of being human property!  Makes so much sense!

And they probably never talked shit about white people in front of him because they knew their asses would end up tarred and hanged because they didn’t have that right.  They weren’t allowed the same free speech rights that Robertson so happily employs.

In the aftermath, A&E has suspended Phil “indefinitely” over the issue, and has come out to say that they of course do not share the beliefs and they love all the queers, queens, and carpet munchers.  And not totally surprisingly, a bunch of ignorant assholes have come out yelling that A&E is violating Phil’s freedom of speech rights, and campaigning for his return.  You know how I know they are all wrong?  This bitch is on their side.

If Sarah Palin and you are on the same team, you are on the wrong team. End of story.

Look, we get it.  There are a ton of conservative Christians who still believe being gay is some sinful choice that people make and they’re probably going to burn in hell because that’s what they misread in the Bible.  And thanks to our Constitution, you have the right to believe that and openly say it, even if does make you sound like an asshole.  What people seem to forget is that while you have the right to say that kind of shit without fear of being thrown in the pokey, you don’t have immunity from losing your job or having the world call you an asshole.  So A&E has every right to suspend Phil Robertson for the shit he said and anyone who wants to call Robertson a hateful pathetic homophobe is also within their right.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences of speech.  Kiss the rainbow, Phil.

    There are not very many folks who are as vile as you seem to be. What Phil Robertson said has been completely spun into something else by you, but that’s usual for liberals. You continually preach “tolerance” but have absolutely no tolerance for anyone who happens to have a different opinion than you. You people are fascists, people who demand that others follow your rules of conduct without question. You are simply bullies who demand that you get your own way. You vilify everything and everyone who doesn’t embrace your agenda. There is no kindness or “tolerance” in you, or respect for another’s right to be different from you. There is absolutely no hate in Phil Robertson. Having your own opinion does not constitute hate. Trying to destroy someone because their opinion differs from yours is hateful from the get-go. Have a nice hateful life.

    I am African American and I support Mr. Robertson and his Christian views. Christians need to stand up and get back to GOD’s WORD. In addition, Mr. Phil Robertson said he had never seen black people suffering doing segregation, this may be his reality. I do not believe one bite that he’s racist.

    Mr. Robertson could have made a more compelling argument against Same-Sex- Marriage, and Homosexuality. With this scripture, (Genesis 18:16-19:29 Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed because of homosexuality, gay men wanted to have sex with the angel God sent down. Asking, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them”. (Genesis 19:5)

    Homosexuality is an unnatural act, God created (ADAM & EVE) and hard wired humans with that mental sightedness. Nevertheless, man is trying to change evolution telling us (ADAM and STEVE) is normal. I saw two men standing on the corner one day, one dressed like a woman and the other man was talking to himself loudly, so a question came to my mind….. “Which, One, Is, Crazy”?

    People have no morality, ethics or moral principles because GOD’s name and words are attacked and taken out of everything (out of sight, out of mind). This country Is becoming morally wrong, chaoic , depraved, and corrupt, we are living in an anything goes, immoral society and toxic atmosphere.

    Only those who do not believe in GOD’s word would defend immorality. IF HOMOSEXUALITY IS WRIGHT, THEN YOU ARE SAYING THE BIBILICAL WORD OF GOD IS WRONG…

    Even Revelations in the Old Testament reads about not being able to tell man from woman.

    We are here for procreation, homosexuality does not produce anything just two negatives, which cancels each other out. Only those who are immoral and do not believe in GOD’s word would defend immorality. IF YOU AGREE, THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS WRIGHT, THEN YOU ARE SAYING THE WORD OF GOD ACCORDING TO BIBILICAL TEACHINGS IS WRONG…

    You say he a hater. No he just saying what the Bible says. Sounds like to me your a hypocrite. You doing the same thing you claim Phil doing.

  6. joni likens says

    Yes, Phil has the right to give his opinion. As I do; and the million of others who agree with me! We are all sinners. Unless we come to the realization that we are a sinner, and come to the one true God (the God of the bible) for forgiveness, we will die and live an eternity apart from God. I believe homosexuals can die, and go to heaven. Just like I believe adulterers can. They have to see their sin, tho for what it is, sin. And be repentant of it. And turn from it. Peace.

  7. Fred Lea says

    Talk about freedom of speech. Why is my first comment “awaiting moderation” when you can call Phil Robinson an “ignorant Bastard” freely.

  8. Kristen says

    Ms. Leitch, you are typical of the intolerance and blindness of liberals. You demonize someone for saying things you say are hurtful and then in the same breath call Sarah Palin a bitch. If you were a conservative and were to call, oh, let’s say… Mrs. Obama a bitch or suggest doing things to her that another liberal talk show host said about doing to Mrs. Palin…just think how huge the uproar would be. I wonder what would have become of Letterman had he been talking about one of the Obama daughters when he suggested one of Mrs. Palin’s daughters get knocked up by a Yankee ball player. I’m going to assume there wasn’t a peep of outrage from you at the time. I can assume then that you only care about the protection of women and children if they conform to your viewpoint?

    You also make fun of “homosexuality as a gateway sin”. There is more truth to that than you my think. Once gay marriage is legal then you have no moral or legal grounds to stand on to stop other activity just because YOU find it repulsive. People who want multiple wives are now going to be able to demand it be made legal. In time fathers and daughters , mothers and sons, and every combination there of may seek to be married. There will be no grounds to deny it because you have taken away the moral grounds. There are people who are “open minded” enough to want to marry their sheep and who is going to be able to tell them no. After all, marriage is no longer between a man and a woman. You are right about free speech and consequences but you are going to see the consequences of your beliefs and actions in the slow but inevitable ruination of our country. Enjoy yourself…after all , that’s the most important thing, isn’t it?

  9. larry waldo says

    all of those people with gladd are all full of hate as you do not respect a persons faith and believe in god as the bible teach.
    I will say this that duck dynasty said in the interview was taken from qutes in the bible. saying that i would have to say that in your opinion that the bible is filled with hate because you would weather turn away from the teaching of gods word.

  10. Hannah says

    I am a Christain and I do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle, but your comment and comments like yours are exactly why people lash out, like the guy who wrote this article did. If you really believe in the hell/bible, and have given any time to reading it, you would have NEVER left a comment like this. Your comment is a disgrace and you are giving the LGBT community a legitimate reason to act/feel the way they do about christianity. Your comment misrepresents everything the Bible stands for.

  11. Hannah says

    Having your own personal beliefs and expressing them as such, is a fundamental right. Disagreeing with another’s lifestyle is not a hate crime, any more than someone who is a homosexual disagreeing with a christians beliefs is.

    To the author of this article, according to your statement, “What people seem to forget is that while you have the right to say that kind of shit without fear of being thrown in the pokey, you don’t have immunity from losing your job or having the world call you an asshole.”, would you think it was discrimination if you got fired for writing this article? According to your above statement, you shouldn’t have immunity from being fired for expressing your harsh/hateful opinions about chirstians, any more the Phil being kicked off the show for his.

    I understand how Phil’s comments caused the reaction it did, but you should understand that the exact way you are lashing out at him for his beliefs, is no different than him lashing out against homosexuality. Why should he be punished for the exact same thing the LGBT community is fighting for – the ability to live and believe what they want without being discriminated against.

  12. Debbie Lovett says

    Ok so you think what Phil said was offensive,better read your own article,way more disgusting,and for the record according to Gods word all sin is equal,one is just as bad as another.

  13. FRANK says

    let me just say I hate know one have been with my gay friends all the way with there life style. love them all but I also this time gonna stand behind a straight guy speaking his opinon on his belief that is written in the bible as I would my gay friends. all I ask is to show me your bible where it says diff. from the 7 I have purchased to see diff.i cant find it.

  14. john says

    Wow you have taken this whole interview and make it sound way worse then it is and you are calling him hateful. You are the hateful one especially on your rant about backwoods Louisiana. I am a proud citizen of Louisiana and i back Phil 100% because we live in America were we have the right to freedom of speech.

  15. Dixie says

    This is a brilliant article, Megan. I love how you stand up and TELL the truth. With humor. So well written. Surely all of these comments against you are from those who think just like Mr. Robertson and stay blind to the parts in themselves that hate and resemble bigotry. They would all have to admit (but, alas, probably wouldn’t) that if they or anyone were a fly on their walls or the “dynasty” walls, there would be earfuls of hatred and imperious judgment spewing forth so evidently that hiding behind the bible or anything else would not, could not cover the fact.
    Ignore the haters, Megan. Keep up the good work.

  16. Tim says

    This was an amazingly well done article I must say it tells the truth I mean Phil makes everyone look bad. Then we got all these “Saints” and “Godly Men” I find this whole comment section hilarious due to the fact that they try and bring in some bullshit about their shit-god because they fear death. Then Sarah Palin, its very true you do not want to be on her side. Honestly the guys backing Phil up are a bunch of weak ass cum-brained close minded morons. There is a difference between freedom of speech and being a dumb shit who doesn’t think about what he says every second of the damn day. I feel bad for all the stupid ass religious fucks that are gonna dissapear into nothingness when they die. Pardon my language and have a good day I enjoyed this topic.

  17. JBONE says

    Wow there are a lot of people here who don’t eat shellfish or pork, don’t wear mixed fabrics, don’t plant wheat and barley in the same field, don’t trim their beards, don’t do anything on the Sabbath other than pray (including driving, tying their shoes, and turning on lights), wear fringes made with blue threads at the ends of their cloths, kill teenagers who talk back to their parents, and have no problem with owning slaves as long as when they do beat their slaves, their slaves can walk within a few days. Oh you guys don’t do those things? Well then you know what you’re doing? You’re cherry picking your “infallible” holy book. Do you know why you’re doing that for homosexuality and not masturbation or touching a woman while she’s on her period? Because you want someone or something to hate.

    I freely admit that I am a biased party because I have friends who are members of the GLB and possibly T community (it depends on 1. how far the definition of transgender goes, and 2. whether or not some of the people I’ve become friends with were born the same sex as they display). They are some of the best people I know, and saying that their lifestyle is equivalent to bestiality and murder is disgusting.

  18. Jimmy says

    I like how some sins, (homosexuality) among others. Are now not
    Considered sins. Non Christians and also Christians just change sin to suit their lifestyle and call Christians haters hiding behind religion. Never allowing others to live there lifestyle. Hey I want GLADD to change a few sins for me to non sins. Why not . That is exactly what all special interest groups like this do. They know how to bully businesses and people for opposing lifestyle or family opinions. A sin is a sin , they are all the same .
