The Duck Dynasty clan is doing a new round of press in advance of the fifth season finale of the show and reminding us again that they’re homophobic idiots.
Less than four months after patriarch Phil Robertson unleashed a media firestorm with his homophobic quotes to GQ magazine, someone from A&E apparently still thinks it’s a good idea to send cast members out on television interviews.
Enter son and co-star Willie Robertson, who even after all of this couldn’t escape from an interview with CNN’s New Day without planting his foot squarely in mouth.
In the interview, the younger Robertson jokes about the controversy while doubling down in support of the outdated and offensive beliefs of his father, then gives a longer answer which manages to be both defiant of criticism and strangely hesitant at the same time:
“I believe what the Bible says. You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. You have to decide, and God will ultimately decide then. We don’t profess to be God, and we certainly don’t profess to be perfect. Because we have our own sins that we deal with.”
Love the sinner, hate the sin, huh? We’re not buying and from the looks of the declining ratings, neither is most of America.
This Duck Dynasty seems like it’s got a lot of dinosaurs steering its sinking ship.
