Last night, GQ released a story about Duck Dynasty that quotes Phil Robertson’s thoughts about homosexuality:
“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.”
As you can imagine, everyone had an opinion about this statement, including GLAAD and Phil’s check-signer, A&E, who suspended the star indefinitely.
One of the conservative tweeters I follow…quickly took to the Twitterverse and posted a side-by-side image of Pope Francis and Phil, with the following caption: “Both preach truth on homosexual sin. One is TIME’s Person of the Year. The other JUST GOT FIRED.”
The point is worth considering. Even though Phil used crass, juvenile language to articulate his point, what he was getting at was his belief that homosexual “desire” is unnatural and inherently disordered. This opinion isn’t unique to Phil. It’s actually shared by a majority of his fans.
It’s also shared, to some extent, by the Pope. Yes, that Pope — the one on the cover not just of TIME but also of The Advocate.
……For the record, I’m undecided on whether or not I think Phil actually is homophobic, although I certainly think his statement was offensive, and not only to the LGBT community. But I also think that if I were to spend a day calling ducks with Phil, I’d probably end up liking him — even in spite of his position on gay men. It’s quite possible to throw one’s political support behind traditional, heterosexual marriage, and yet not be bigoted.
I will not watch A&E until they get a clue. You ask someone a question, they give you an honest answer, and they get harassed. Left-leaning media uses bait questions as a tactic to elicit controversy as part of a premeditated smear, and they wonder why people get pissed. I don’t usually watch the show, but I support Phil and his family. They’re good, decent people who obviously worked hard to get what they have. Screw A&E.
If you ask someone a question knowing damned well where they stand to begin with, get ready for a debate if they don’t give you an answer you want to hear. The double standard meme has become SOP in the leftwing universe. Paula Deen gets slammed for racial comments she made 30 years ago, while while black entertainers, politicians, and commentators who utter racial epithets against blacks and whites, are given a pass.
At least Brandon Ambrosino–the author of the piece–raises the issue of hypocritical bigotry in the homosexual population.
