Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty said in a GQ interview:
"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.” Robertson then paraphrased Corinthians from the Bible: “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.”
And if that wasn’t explicit enough, the “Duck Commander” added: “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."
Breitbart pointed out the hypocrisy of Entertainment Weekly for calling Phil Robertson bigoted:
"Had the "Duck Dynasty" star singled out homosexuals, EW might be able to make its case for the absurd charge that he made "anti-gay comments." But as you can read with your own eyes, Robertson did not single out gays, he appropriately listed heterosexual sexual sin, such as adultery and sleeping around. ...
Robertson is also talking about homosexual sexual behavior, not homosexuals as human beings. That is all the difference in the world.
Moreover, Robertson also lists "the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers" as those who will not "inherit the kingdom of God."
It is quite obvious that Robertson is only guilty of being anti-sin, not anti-gay."
Laura Stampler with TIME magazine is one of the many in the media to attack Phil Robertson. She calls the comments "anti-gay" and sarcastically quips: "Because, you know, comparing someone to a terrorist is no sign of disrespect."
Equality isn't a new crusade for Stampler. She recently wrote about her disgust at a children's book about dieting and discrimination against fat models.
