UPDATE: “Duck Dynasty” Star Likens Homosexuality To Bestiality, Says Being Gay Is “Not Logical”

duck-dynasty-gq-magazine-january-2014-01

SECOND UPDATE: A&E network, which broadcasts Duck Dynasty, has finally broken its silence over offensive antigay comments made by the series star Phil Robertson and indefinitely suspended his appearance on the popular program. The company released a statement to the media that reads, “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

UPDATE: Phil Robertson issued a statement containing a quasi-apology to E! News and, naturally, blames credits the Bible for his homophobic perspective. It reads: “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.”

Earlier we reported:

In an interview from its January 2014 issue, GQ chats with Duck Dynasty patriarch/ornery sonuvabitch Phil Robertson, who reveals himself to be a raging homophobe with thoughts on the gays as unkempt as his beard.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” Robertson tells GQ’s Drew Magary. “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.”

You know what’s super illogical? A bunch of squirrel-eating ZZ Top rejects (not a read, just a fact) being proclaimed the most fascinating people of the year — looking at you, Babs Walters. The 67-year-old Bible-thumping born-again Christian then delves into the nature of sin and how his show is a beacon in America’s dark, immoral road to hell:

[I]n Robertson’s worldview, America was a country founded upon Christian values (Thou shalt not kill, etc.), and he believes that the gradual removal of Christian symbolism from public spaces has diluted those founding principles….He sees the popularity of Duck Dynasty as a small corrective to all that we have lost.

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

What, in your mind, is sinful?

“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 says. Then he paraphrases 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.”

As Magary points out, it’s not entirely surprising that Robertson holds such radically conservative ideals, which also explains Duck Dynasty‘s “red state” appeal. With such unappealing public comments, however, GLAAD, reached out to A&E to see if the network stands behind Robertson’s world view. Probably not, but A&E definitely stands behind ratings – their one true god.

Anygay. I’m not super familiar with the Bible — I prefer to get my life lessons from repeated viewings of Paris Is Burning — but doesn’t it say somewhere about letting he without sin cast the first stone, or whathaveyou? No tea, no shade (all tea, all shade), but born-again Christians are literally the last people who should tell anyone how to live their lives. They already fucked up once, what the hell do they know?

      He is definitely “paraphrasing” Corinthians, because the original doesn’t say a WORD about “homosexuals”.

      I love these pseudo-christians who believe SO strongly that they actually start writing up their own bullshit annexes to the Bible.

      If we took out all the crap that was added after the 1st century AD, there wouldn’t be a word about homosexuality in the Bible at all. And MOST of those words are mistranslations or outright additions that are not present either in the Aramaic, Hebrew, or Greek versions.

      I can only hope that their 15 minutes of fame will end. Soon. As I posted elsewhere; if you look at cable reality TV, it has only gone downhill. Just as one floating turd leaves the the air (“Jersey Shore”) another takes it’s place that is only X times worse (Honey Boo Boo). I remember when the Animal Planet was about animals… and informative. Now it’s all about a bunch of toothless morons rounding up poisonous snakes and alligators with just enough faux drama to make (at least me) root for the reptile. My fear is that when this Duck crap leaves the air… how much worse will the replacement be?

I mean, the mere fact that they are making millions is enough to suggest that they are in it to make lots of money by playing the Christian card to the choir of the converted.

      Shouldn’t we in the gay community be more concerned by people like Lady Gaga who collaborated with homophobes like TI?

He’ll just issue some manufactured apology and that’ll he the end of it. What they should make him do while they have him under contract; is a spin-off called Dick Dynasty. On Dick Dynasty he has to go out and give gay sex a try, and only allow him to talk about what he liked about it. I find it hard to believe that he could be caught up in sex and drugs as heavy as he claims he was and didn’t have a few moments when he was enjoying the male specimen, bet he laid up with a Jesús or two back in the day.

      The network would not have reacted so quickly if sponsors and a desireable demographic hadn’t been so loud. Let’s face it. We’ve won the demo war at least. People who aren’t bigots and homophobes tend to be better educated and/or have more disposable income. Gays, for instance. Allies, another instance. The religious right is of course claiming victimhood (ain’t Karma a fabulous bitch). They have thier own demo as well. Surely if A&E does the right thing and dumps this crap show (yes I have seen it), CMT or some other network that caters to The People of Walmart will pick it up. We need to hold A&E’s feet to the fire. If they think this will blow over, they will put it back on and think “sorry, no harm, no foul, right?”. Oh, and guest4ever, just as soon as you’re willing to follow the Bible to the letter (killing your neighbor for working the Sabbath, smitingyour kids for being smartasses, not wearing cotton/poly blends, stoning female relatives for not being vigins on wedding nights, etc), and provide proof (one of my cousin’s wife is a Federal Prosecutor), please do come back to spout more of your nonsense.

      @guest4ever: What “astronomically high murder rate” among us? Where did you get this fantasy? What evidence do you have that gay men are murdering each other? In 40 years in the “homosexual lifestyle” I’ve known but two gay men who were murdered – both by heterosexuals. No gay men walk into a gay bar and ever started shooing up the place as heterosexuals rampage through churches, school board meetings, shopping malls and their own weddings and birthday parties. There are 14,000 murders a year — most of them are by hetero family members killing their wives, husbands or kids.

      Do you make up stuff for a living or are you just out of your mind.

      Meanwhile, folks like you seem to be calling for a genocide against gay men to put us out of your misery — most humorous, indeed.

      His ignorant statement only proves that he sees being gay as a choice, as if gay men are simply choosing to screw men instead of women. It doesn’t work like that you old fool. Educate yourself with a psychology book instead of the Bible, you might actually improve your I.Q.

      I love you fake trolls who come in here, attack the gay community and yet think that we don’t know that you are a closeted homosexual who loves scouring the gay blogs, but telling yourself if you say a few anti-gay things nobody will know it. Trust me, you are very obvious.

      As for your fake statement. It’s funny, those are the exact same thing that right wingers claim about blacks, hispanics, etc… You would think that for a group as proven non-violent overall as the gay community you would have at least thought of a different lie than the one you use for all the other minorities.

      @Caleb in SC: Dez is saying exactly the opposite of what you’re attributing to him.

      Dez points out, correctly, that there are plenty of gay men who never or rarely engage in anal sex, and it’s a corny stereotype to think we ALL invariably do that all the time.

      Your complaint should be directed at the Duck Dynasty guy, who yes, does seem to be totally unaware that straights are capable of doing anal sex. … Although in his case, it’s probably not even a hypothetical concern, lol.

      And once again BJ’s first instinct as always is to defend any anti-gay comments made by conservatives. Even if he has to lie to do it.

      BJ, we get it, you will support anybody who attacks or harms gays, but when you lie to try to do it, please at least try to find a lie that isn’t so easy to spot.

      Baldwin was dumped from both the Capital One campaign AND his show on MSNBC was cancelled before it began airing. tina fey and NBC came under massive fire for Morgans statements, and also Morgan hasn’t been very political in his statements, but I guess you just assumed he was liberal because you label all black people as such.

      So again, we get it, you hate gays and will support anybody who attacks us because you seem to be incredibly self hating.

      Still, there’s a difference because he didn’t say being black (or acting black) was “sinful,” or comparable to bestiality and murder, etc. etc. etc.

      @the other Greg: Actually, there is no difference. An offensive statement is an offensive statement; no matter how it’s veiled or coded. No need to make it into a competition of what statement was more offensive. And to AuntieChrist, to suggest that a black person is “being a victim and playing the race card” by simply pointing out that an incident of bigotry took place is extremely ignorant on your part. Perhaps Black Pegasus could have chose a more tactful way to present his / her point but, indeed, they did have a valid point to make.

      Funny how the same conservatives who were calling for the dismissal of Martin Bashir for vocalizing his personal “opinions” about Sarah Palin are now championing so called freedom of speech. I wonder if they’re also going to start a petition to get him his job back on MSNBC? Freedom of speech goes both ways, right? Sarah Palin actually had the nerve to say this: “Free speech is an endangered species. Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.” So….when can we expect you to come out in support of Mr Bashir, Sister Sarah?

      Duck Dynasty dude’s opinion is identical to, hmmm off the top of my head, the Catholic church’s. And you all say the CC is our best friend now. His quote about “not treating anyone with disrespect” is no different than “who am I to judge”. So why are you guys bitching again. Maybe if he said it in a softer tone you guys would like it?

      @Will L: I’ve taken it a step further, I purposely add people on Facebook with the sole reason of catching them out. I got one this morning calling his suspension “the work of fucking f@ggots”, it also happens I work on the backend database system for the company he works for, and am friends with his line manager who lives down the street from me.

      His line manager is not gay, and is apathetic to our struggle, however he hates this guy so I forwarded the message and some Facebook messages I acquired sent from him, and he was suspended without pay this morning.

      Merry christmas to that guy.

      @MikeE:

      MikeE, this should be added to your comment —

      Though not widely known but should be, the following excerpts are proof enough that everyone should always be looking for and practicing NEW and BETTER attitudes to express towards the LGBT community than what is currently written in the Book.

      1 Corinthians 13: …

      8. Love never fails, but where there are prophecies and……special knowledge, they will become useless. Love will last forever!

      9. Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!

      10. But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.

      12. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror….. All that I know now is partial and incomplete……

      13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

      He is definitely “paraphrasing” Corinthians, because the original doesn’t say a WORD about “homosexuals”.
      I love these pseudo-christians who believe SO strongly that they actually start writing up their own bullshit annexes to the Bible.
      If we took out all the crap that was added after the 1st century AD, there wouldn’t be a word about homosexuality in the Bible at all. And MOST of those words are mistranslations or outright additions that are not present either in the Aramaic, Hebrew, or Greek versions.

      All the hoopla over his views on homosexuality are a smokescreen. His love of vagina is held by most of the straight men in the world. The smokescreen is covering his thoughts on Jim Crow laws and Islam, held also by Palin and her ilk.

      I don’t care what some idiot thinks or says, but I have this amused fascination with all these rightwingfundamentalistteapartiers who have suddenly discovered free speech and the 1st Amendment, which they spew out of one side of their mouths while they decry the liberal conspiracy of the “war on Christmas” out the other side. It’s absolutely astounding that they’re oblivious to the hypocrisy.

      Geez, can’t we find some middle ground here? I’m gay-curious and I don’t necessarily agree with this guy’s views, but I’m not going to tar and feather him for it. I mean, I’m pretty sure he had no intention of insulting homosexuals, just stating his opinion on the matter. Should he really be fired for holding a differing opinion from the overwhelmingly liberal media? “Raging homophobe?” Really? Just because he calls us sinners? Why should his opinion carry so much weight anyway?

      The Bible says we are all sinners and all sins are equal in the eyes of the Lord. Therefore, heterosexuals are in no way above homosexuals. We are all united in sin. By the Bible’s standards, if you have so much as stolen a pencil from your workplace knowingly, you are just as guilty as any man who has lain with a man as with a woman. Same applies for women. I believe there is a God, and he loves us all equally, just as we are. So can we all just stop the hate?
