Is Phil Robertson Wrong?

Posted on | December 18, 2013 | 87 Comments

You’ll excuse my confusion, but amidst the hyperventilating screeches — GLAAD claiming that Phil Robertson was pushing “vile and extreme stereotypes” — maybe I missed what it was the Duck Dynasty patriarch actually said that was wrong.

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

Is it a “vile and extreme stereotype” to say that gay men engage in anal sex with each other? Or is it in some way objectionable for heterosexuals to say that they prefer the opposite sex? Why is this offensive? To whom is it offensive and why?

“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,” A&E said in a statement, which was reported by The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”

Again: Why? Not just why has Phil Robertson been placed on hiatus, but why is A&E obliged to proclaim that they are “strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community”? Is someone threatening to sue them for discrimination?

Mary Katharine Ham points out that Duck Dynasty “averages 14 million viewers per episode,” 4 million more than the much-ballyhooed finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad. A major reason for the show’s popularity is the down-to-earth backwoods Bible-thumping wholesomeness of the Robertson family, whose values Phil Robertson rather bluntly expressed in a magazine interview.

It would seem to me that A&E is cutting off its entertaining nose to spite its profitable face, and that once again the tail is wagging the dog: The gay minority (no more than 4% of the population) dictating to the straight majority, as if the 96% had no rights at all.

    GLAAD on Wednesday condemned his remarks as “some of the vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication”
    Hah! go look at the porn magazines of these disgusting GLAAD pigs. That’s vile! You want extreme, see how many kids and babies homosexuals have abused in society – scum of people.

    Well. Phil Robertson’s comment against anal sex certainly has the gay community all butthurt.

    I was saying that I don’t care what people do in their personal lives so long that’s their own business. Nor do I care for someone preaching their religious beliefs. Regardless what it is, the 1st amendment respects every individual American to say and do what they wish. All I am is defending the rights of the individual and it’s Phil Robertson in this case.

    Of course Little Miss Himmler is here to spread her hatred. You’re a mental case and the fact that you can’t see that make it’s even worse.

    The only perversion around here is you. You are a truly despicable human being. It’s unfortunate whatever trauma you suffered in life didn’t make you a better person and instead turned you into the blight on society that you are.

    Amazing that you actually had the nerve to say you have no bias against gays. It’s like Hitler saying he had no bias against Jews.

    There is not a single person here more perverse and mentally unstable than you. Stop projecting. You’re a sociopath who had a horrible childhood and that’s obvious to anyone with even a smidgen of mental health training.

    Think about your life and the extent that you are going to in order to poke someone whom probably doesn’t give a sh¡t what you think.

    You are insane. (and a big fat loser).

    Given that our little pink troll has shown up – here’s news:

    Lesbian terd at an elite NY school has allegedly sacked married coaches with children and replaced them with other lesbian terds and young unmarried singles.

    We have to wait for the results, but if he’s bringing a lawsuit, is it one more case of where there is smoke, there’s fire? People with a perverted sexuality of any kind, like the LGBTP, corrupt the institutions they work in due to their perverted desires and agendas.

    Hiring LGBTPs means they will form gay mafias wherever they are and use their power for their corrupt objectives. These are the people who are then in a position to cover up any form of wrong doing, including abuse of kids and all sorts of sexual misconduct towards of adults. They protect their own and they hate decent people.
