Duck Dynasty star anti-gay remarks
Not sure who has all seen this, but to me it is getting blown out of proportion. For whatever reason people are turning this into a freedom of speech issue. Here is the comment in question from a GQ interview
After that statement A&E had him issue another statement later in the day (damage control):
ďIt seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a manís anus," Robertson told GQ. "Thatís just me. Iím just thinking: Thereís more there! Sheís got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what Iím saying? But hey, sin: Itís not logical, my man. Itís just not logical.Ē
ďEverything is blurred on whatís right and whatís wrong. Sin becomes fine," he later added. ďStart with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Donít be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they wonít inherit the kingdom of God. Donít deceive yourself. Itís not right.Ē

ďI 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.Ē
Now he has been suspended from the Duck Dynasty show.
I personally think this has gotten blown out of proportion. Facebook has already blown up with people crying foul. To me this is just comment of a ignorant man, that uses religion as a shield for his beliefs, that forgets he is a public figure. People are saying that A&E is impeding on his First Amendment rights because they suspended him from the show. I on the other hand think A&E is trying to prevent any backlash coming back on them, and in the extreme case, some sort of lawsuit (even though I know that is far fetched idea).
I think the only reason why people are butt hurt over this is because the Robertsons are so well liked. I have a feeling that if someone like Kanye West, who has let his mouth overload his ass as of late, said something like this people would want him strung up for it.
Anyway, what say you?
