Surprise! Those ‘Duck Dynasty’ guys are homophobic

Surprise! Those ‘Duck Dynasty’ guys are homophobic

I’ve never watched a single episode of Duck Dynasty, mostly because I can already accurately sum up the entire show based on its concept: Rednecks are funny because they’re different! But they’re just like you! Slap their faces on everything from Chia Pets to iPhone games, and watch A&E make a tidy prophet off of the lowest common denominator. Please, stop me if I’m too prescient here. Anyway, turns out the self-avowed rednecks who live in a swamp are homophobic, so now I have another reason to not watch this show. Huzzah for me. TMZ reports …

Robertson went on a rant about religion, homosexuality, and a bunch of other things in an interview with GQ — saying, “It seems like to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me.” He adds, “There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on dudes! But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man.” Phil continued his verbal attack by claiming society’s become too accepting of sin. He says, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and those men … they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. It’s not right.” As for whether his comments will affect Duck Dynasty ratings — Phil doesn’t seem concerned about the show’s long term future, saying … “It’s a TV show. This thing ain’t gonna last forever. No way.”

Ignoring for a fact the pros of cons of vagina v. anal (no, we’re not going there) really? You’re on a reality show on A&E. Your faces are literally upon graven images! Albeit, people use them to grow sprouts, but still, I’m not sure how much of a leg you have to stand on when you’re making millions off of a fake reality show. I hope you know how to get a camel through the eye of a needle, buddy.
