Lefty gay rights activists are up in arms over comments Phil Robertson made regarding homosexuality. The “Duck Dynasty” patriarch told GQ that he believes homosexuality is a sin:

“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,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “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.”

Many were quick to pounce on Robertson’s comments, denouncing him as a homophobe and using the remarks as evidence that committed Christians are intolerant bigots.

Here’s “Ellen Show” executive producer Andy Lassner:

GLAAD spokesman and former “My So-Called Life” actor Wilson Cruz also expressed disgust:

And GLAAD issued a statement condemning Robertson:

But that got some people to wondering: Where was this outrage from GLAAD after Alec Baldwin was caught — repeatedlyusing gay slurs?

Whether or not you agree with Robertson’s views, it’s clear that they stem from his firm belief in biblical teachings. And Robertson is careful to emphasize that he is not in any position to pass judgment on someone else:

As far as Phil is concerned, he was literally born again. Old Phil—the guy with the booze and the pills—died a long time ago, and New Phil sees no need to apologize for him: “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

Today, he responded to the criticism from GLAAD and others:

“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.”

Now, if it were Alec Baldwin we were dealing with, the response would range from feigned ignorance to physical assault. He could learn a thing or two about class from Robertson.

And from the looks of things, Robertson won’t have to defend himself by himself:

https://twitter.com/Krs_1031/status/413416575346438144

Indeed. If Robertson’s critics are truly appalled at blatant homophobia, if they are truly interested in addressing genuine persecution of homosexuals, they ought to focus their attention elsewhere:

      Christians get outraged over the killing of homosexuals, adulterers and the like by Islamist. homosexuals, adulterers and the like get outraged that Christianity teaches that they will go to hell for their behavior. Islam teaches this as well except they carry out the punishment immediately while Christians want to try to save the sinners soul. i can only assume that, for some of the professional grievance merchants, they would rather be stoned to death or beheaded than to have someone try to convince them they need to change their lifestyle. the thought of someone telling them they are living in sin is somehow worse than the threat of death. a lot of them claim to not believe in God. is that really true? somewhere deep down they must and just don’t want to be reminded of it or self preservation would surely trump being proselytized to. yet these same people tell us that all cultures are equal but somehow the worst religion is Christianity. does GLADD protest out front of the radical mosques? if they are serious about their views then why not take their show on the road? Christians brave death in inhospitable places around the world to spread the message. no, they will sit right here in comfort being protected by the very people they try to destroy. it’s time for everyone to realize that tolerance does not mean acceptance. we accept that everyone has views. we tolerate the ones we disagree with.

    And what will go unanswered again is the question as to where the “proof” is that homosexuality is anything other than a personal choice, and thus deserving of extra-legislative consideration.

    I don’t give a rodent’s backside as to what adults do in their own lives. However, I am about sick to death of having to hear about what “discrimination” homosexuals suffer when the United States Code is being written to assuage their tender feelings.

    I still think it is a form of mental disorder, but it’s not much different than alcoholism or drug addiction.

    • nickdqwk

      I’m in agreement with you (seems like all the time) Phil, my only question to GLAAD would be why are you not speaking out on behalf of your Middle Eastern persecuted members being stoned, be-headed, hanged, and otherwise murdered?

        It’s hard to push progressivism in America by being outraged at things that happen in other countries. Liberals prefer to use other countries as examples of “why America sucks”, pesky facts like our high standard of living and relative tolerance get in the way.

    • b_truit

      I will make it easy for those who lack common sense. No man, but GOD called homosexuality a sin. God also created man and God does not create garbage, I believe he called his creation “good” God gave us free will, to choose to sin or not to sin, to follow him or not to follow him. So my question to the gay community is, if you claim you were born this way, then are you calling God a liar? To claim you were born this way is to say God created a human who was born to live in sin and never had a choice to get out of it…. and if your argument is well I don’t believe in God…. well good luck with that.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Amen, brother. I’d also like to add that I’m really getting sick of the term ‘homophobic.’ I have no phobia concerning them, only a desire for them to keep their bedroom antics as quiet as other folks.

      • Jennifer

        Really? I’d like to see what example your have that supports the button that gay people make their “bedroom antics” anymore public than straights. Stating “as quiet as other folks” would imply that the “other folks”- straight in the masses – do indeed keep their bedroom antics private. This is simply not true. Gay people do not advertise their sex lives anymore than straight people do.

      The pasage Robertson referred to in his interview was out of Ist Corinthians. That’s his reasoning, and it doesn’t seem to have to do with what he personally feels. And it’s not truly a paraphrase like it says in the quoted part of the article; it’s more like something closer to a modern translation. See Matthew Vines on 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Robertson displayed an honest degree of everyday Bible scholarship in his interview response. I don’t watch Duck Dynasty, so I had no idea he was a real deal.

      And dear Tugboat, please explain to me where you obtained your degree is psychology? I simply agog here, breath bated waiting your actual facts to support your “opinion” about human sexuality. In the meantime lets consider some actual reality.

      Those laws which have been placed into effect regarding discrimination based upon sexual orientation, protect all people from discrimination based upon their sexual orientation. That means your employer cannot fire you because you are heterosexual or homosexual. And when it comes to choice, he cannot fire you because you are a Roman Catholic, a Baptist or a Mormon despite the fact that religious affiliation is definitely a matter of person opinion and choice. One is not born a Catholic or a Jehovah Witness. One make a choice to become one at some point in time and can as easily choose not to participate. Yet we provide religious adherents [and non adherents] with legal protection.

      I too do not give a rat’s backside if one is religious or nonreligious, whom one sleeps with, whether one is married, what race one is, what one’s ethnic derivation is or other such reality. I simply believe that it really is not a matter upon which people should be making decisions about whom to hire or not hire, whom to let to or not let to, whom to serve in a restaurant or a shop and whom to bar.

      But when it comes to mental disorder, I think bigotry, like alcohol and drug addition is a result of personal choices together with mental and physical deficiencies. At least there is some actual scientific basis for my opinion. Unlike yours.

    Soon they’ll be wailing in the aisles over cats being better than dogs as pets, and folks opting for a certain flavor of ice cream. STFU you footie pajama wearing idjits. Phil Robertson is entitled to his opinion, which, foreign to you all, is based on HIS beliefs. As opposed to yours, which are based on your “feelings” and lack of tolerance for the feelings of others.

  • JoeMyGodNYC

    Baldwin called one person a bad name. Robertson compared tens of millions of Americans to people who have sex with animals. There’s the difference.

    • TroyGates

      Robertson shared his beliefs, Baldwin used his words to berate someone in a fit of anger.

    • praymorenow1

      Obama’s new key administration guy has said the GOP is like Jonestown….and he got a promotion after that. Nothing like sliming a group of people to score some bucks at a DNC party.
      Alec Baldwain has verbally assaulted women, children, gay men, people on the street, reporters, and used a variety of lovely slurs for years & years….he got several Emmys and a credit card commercial gold mine job out of it. Charlie Sheen has actually hit and harmed women in his life, continues to slime women and anyone he dislikes…and he is getting paid millions every year in spite of it.
      Robertson is saying he thinks it is not natural….is he alone in that? No. He isn’t saying it’s illegal, or that it cannot be legal. He isn’t saying you can’t do It, or live your life as you choose. He lives in America 2013, & he’s expressing his view on that.
      Just giving his point of view, at this time in his life, w/ his life experience, and most important, his interpretation of The Bible he NOW relishes & believes is the Word of God. He didn’t always feel that way.
      I’d worry far less about someone like Phil, than others in the fastest growing religion in the world, Islam, where gay men & women are considered sub-human, and punishable by death for the activity, or perceived activity…and that happens everywhere in the Islamic world. The press, Hollywood, etc., remain rather silent on that.

    • fanofamerica

      I think his point was more along the lines of there are people who practice bestiality who don’t see anything wrong with that and what’s to stop them now from pushing for acceptance using the gay marriage argument of ‘what’s it to you?/stay out of my sex life/how does ‘my’ having sex with animals hurt you?’

      I do have to say though that it’s kind of refreshing to see that progressives actually might have limits on on what is acceptable when it comes to sexual proclivity. Phil just draws his line a little earlier than you draw yours.

      Liberals defended Baldwin using a gay slur, but now hypocritically and self-righteously condemn Robertson for calmly expressing his opinion. Couple that with the fact that what Baldwin did was not an isolated incident. Yeah, there’s a difference all right… kind of like how liberals praise Obama for being open to the “idea” of gay marriage, bur ignore how he’s still to the right of Dick Cheney on the issue.

          Must have been so loud that I missed it. GLADD was finally shamed into making a statement but basically excused his repeated use of homophobic slurs because they knew deep down he was a friend to the gay community…..or something.

        • Ranba_Ral

          What Hanna said. GLADD came out, backing him, saying he didn’t need to apologize because they know his heart’s really in the right place and he doesn’t actually hate gays, despite repeated public rants full of slurs.

          • JoeMyGodNYC

          They do – I personally know some. Of course they’ll be on TV and in movies, but not almost all of them, which is the case with TV and movies in today’s leftist controlled entertainment world.

    • grais

      If the quotes in the link below are accurate, was asked what he considers to be sin. He listed homosexuality and bestiality as 2 things he thinks are sins. He didn’t compare homosexuals to people who have sex w/animals.

    • Ranba_Ral

      Baldwin makes homophobic and racist remarks in public rants on a nearly monthly basis. A couple of months ago (before the most recent incident everyone went off on about the photographers and his wife) GLADD actually came out in a press release and said his near constant homophobic slurs were okay and they didn’t think he needed to apologize because they know his heart’s really in the right place. You don’t go on such rants with regularity unless there’s hatred for the group you’re slandering in your heart.

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        That is NOT what GLAAD said.

    • Suzanne Coffey Piercy

      He never said that at all. You need to listen more and talk less! He said he believed they were both a sin. Bearing false witness against another is a sin also.

    • KhadijahMuhammad

      Actually, he didn’t make that comparison at all. Sorry.

    • Noonespecial

      As usual, lying seems to be the liberal fall-back stance. He didn’t compare gays with any of those other things. He just said they’re all sins.

    • Sgt. Buck

      And Phil said it straight and true to what he and many Americans think. So why did that upset you and folks who back the gay agenda? Probably because he was a bit too close to the mark of truth I think.

    • soxfan4evah

      No he did not, read the entire comment.

      “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,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “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.”

      He goes on to say, “It seems
      like, to me,” a woman “would be more desirable …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.”

      The only comparison was he views both as sins.

    So many of his critics have such a child like view of things. They don’t understand the complexities or nuances of life, such as a person’s beliefs.

    They don’t understand that you can criticize or disagree with a person’s actions, sometimes even vehemently, and not dislike them or hate them.

    This last statement seems to describe his views perfectly. Isn’t trying to force someone to approve of behavior that they find abhorrent fascism?

  • LegalizeShemp

    Remember, liberals are tolerant and open-minded, unless you have moral and religious objections to homosexuality and abortion, then they become intolerant and close minded. They also never attack radical Muslims, the most homophobic and sexist bigots on the planet.

  • praymorenow1

    GLADD & other gay activist groups like GLSEN, PFLAG, etc. did lose credibility over the years, w/ the silence they displayed over obvious gay slurs from Alec Baldwin, many musicians, rappers in particular, movies, etc. Either ignoring it, or excusing it as free speech or art. Sorry, if one is a democrat, one is allowed to pretty much slur anyone, and it can be excused some way.
    Duck Dynasty stars know it is a tv show about guys who make duck calls…and it has a beginning, middle, and end shelf life as a tv show that is popular. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is intentional to allow them to be ‘cut’, and make their own tv show on their own dime….(again).
    Having said that, he isn’t saying anything that doesn’t follow his personal faith and publicly stated Christian foundation. He was pretty crude about it, w/o using curse words…..I could have done w/o that I suppose. But, nothing he said is a surprise is it?
    We are all sinners.
    Period. He has said that.
    Sex out of marriage is a sin. Sex between anyone but man and woman is a sin to him, and to many others. Doesn’t mean you don’t have the right to do that in this day and age……..also doesn’t mean it erases the sin. Stealing, drunkenness, pride, envy, not honoring your parents, those are all sins too.

    I’ve posted this elsewhere….I’ll post it here….

    The argument for same-sex marriage is:
    “2 consenting adults who love each other and it’s nobody’s business what they
    do.”
    So when bigamists/polygamists use that argument, will GLAAD/Wilson Cruz stand
    side-by-side with them?
    And when 2 brothers, or 2 sisters, call a news conference to announce their love
    for each other – and their desire to marry – will GLAAD/Wilson Cruz stand
    side-by-side with them?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know…its sick…disgusting…it will never happen….sure….whatever.
    But that’s exactly what people said years ago when the subject was men marrying
    men, and women marrying women.
    And yet, here we are…..
    Whether we like it or not, at some point, 2 adult human beings – siblings –
    will stand before the public and announce that they are in love and want to marry.
    And they will use the exact same argument that was used by the gay community.
    And many will respond by saying:
    “That’s sick!”
    “They’re disgusting!”
    “FREAKS!!!!”
    ….which is exactly what was once said about gay unions & gay people.
    And I would even go so far as to say that many in the gay community will respond
    in the same manner. So, I guess its OK to change the standards for the gay
    community….but not for anyone else.
    And I guess it means that some are more equal than others.
    With non-stop access to all sorts of sexually-related material via the
    internet & cable television, the children of tomorrow are becoming much
    more sexually-aware than we ever could imagine. So sibling relationships will
    (probably) be the next broken taboo.

I have never received an answer to that question. If they answered it honestly, it came from “traditional” marriage. They cannot answer that question.

    You can invite Phil Robertson or Barack Obama to dinner or a hunt on the water. Just the 2 of you. No one else around for a mile.

    I don’t necessarily agree with him, but he has the right to have those beliefs and I love his show.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    While GLAAD is “outraged” at Robertson’s remarks, what is the “appropriate” response of those of us who support traditional marriage at this?

    PASADENA >> In a Tournament of Roses first, two Los Angeles men will celebrate their gay marriage on a Rose Parade float as it goes down Colorado Boulevard on New Year’s Day.

    http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/social-affairs/20131217/la-gay-couple-to-marry-on-rose-parade-float

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      We are not allowed to have an opinion or response to this. One may only smile and wave as the float goes by.
      Way to ruin another happy tradition with politics progs.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        It’s a 125 year old tradition that is loved by families all over the world. But, EQUALITY!!!!!!!

        • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Pffffft, tradition.
          On my bucket list was going to the parade and working on the floats. It was a blast! Glad that I have that memory tucked away.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            Never did it, always wanted to, but now?

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            If your going to do it, apply now for next year before it gets too bad.

        • Matt

          It can’t still be loved?

          I don’t think one gay couple is going to ruin the whole thing.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            Right. Back to my original point. What should our “appropriate” response be? John says, “sit down and shut up.”

          • Matt

            I’m a supporter of marriage equality, so I can’t really put in an appropriate response.

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            No, what will ruin the Rose parade is injecting national politics into it. Keep up.

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            The Rose Bowl Parade is held in California, the nation’s most populous state, and one of the SIXTEEN where gay marriage is legal. If you want to stop that parade marriage from happening, good luck.

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        There have been opposite-sex marriages during the Rose Bowl Parade. Why do these people have to push their personal lives into everyone else’s day?

        • Tigerspike

          I didn’t say that only gay marriages shouldn’t be during the Rose Parade, did I?

        • nc ✓s & balances

          Aren’t you cute? Traditional marriage has never been controversial, or haven’t you heard?

        • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

          So, you’re a heterophobe.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      They’re not the first gays in the Parade, however. They’ve been around since the parade started. Trust me on this.

      It’s the glorification people are going to object to, as there really is no need to celebrate a wedding on a float going down a street on a chilly January morning at 8:30 local time, unless the point is for it to be seen nationwide on TV.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        Of course. If someone is participating because they are a dancer or a band member or a float designer, they are keeping their private life private. Who cares?

        But to push this in everyone’s face, like it or not, is very rude.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    I don’t agree with Robertson, but at least he expressed himself like an adult, as opposed to that fat idiot who seriously needs anger management. Speaking of which, is the lesson we’re supposed to take away from all this that it’s okay to be intolerant of gays so long as you conduct yourself like a raving psychopath? Is that really what GLADD wants? Because they’re sending mixed signals.

  • Sam701

    Well, if the left decides to try and start a boycott against Duck Dynasty, surely it will work, just like it did with Chick-Fil-A

    • JoeMyGodNYC

      Nobody on the left watches inbred swill like Duck Dynasty. So, you’re right. A boycott would be useless.

      • Tigerspike

        Out of curiosity…if you don’t watch it, how do you know it’s inbred swill?

        • JoeMyGodNYC

          Have you SEEN their photos?

          • Tigerspike

            So you’re basing your stance on bigotry.

          • NRPax

            Well, it’s perfectly acceptable for him to use slurs like that since gay people are a protected class.

          • Sam701

            No, I haven’t seen their photos, please enlighten me. In other words, what in their photos proves they are “inbred swill”, as you say?

            I have. Answer the question, Joey.

      • WilliamAmos

          Yes. There are millions of gun nut Jesus freaks in the USA. You are correct.

            Interesting in one breath you attack bigotry then in the next you practice it.

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            I don’t denounce “gun nut Jesus freaks” by comparing them to people who have sex with animals or declaring that they are all sinners bound for an eternal lake of fire.

          • drw

            So, are you saying you’re a considerate bigot? Or perhaps you’re a reasonable bigot. I think the term “gun nut Jesus freaks” speaks volumes to your hypocrisy. Tell me, because I’m interested, how long have you been gunaphobic and Christianaphobic?

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            For 54 years.

          • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

            Ummmm…that didn’t happen, Joey.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Weigh in on this one, Joe– you were a little conspicuous in your absence:
            http://twitchy.com/2013/12/17/top-shot-champ-chris-cheng-comes-out-as-gay-for-guns/#disqus_thread

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            “Gun Nut Gays”– oh, quelle horreur!
            So hey, Joe, whaddaya know?

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            Like with all minority communities, there is much infighting among gays about most issues, including gun rights. If you want to, check out how my readers today eviscerated Cheng for his support of the NRA…

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            So your followers are bigots too? Go figure.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Joe WOULD say that, about evisceration, but a perusal of his site would show that, while the count would appear to be well on the anti-NRA side, more than one of his readers brought up the familiar “Who died and left YOU in charge of what I’m supposed to think or believe?” This is because the LGBT community, defined simply by those who ARE one of those categories as opposed to being “Queer Nation” types, is hardly a monolithic one. Unless, of course, you think the Koch Brothers pay people to go on Joe’s obscure site and “concern-troll,” and there really ARE no non-Raving-Leftie-loon gay people.

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            The LGBT community, like all minority communities, is FAR from monolithic. We endure at least as much infighting at the Tea Party community.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Sadly, the LGBT community, many of whom are simply “Four-legs-good! Two-legs-bad!” reactionaries when it comes to anything smacking of the Right, thinking that the Right is monolithic, should in fact have an honest discussion, leaving the NRA/Right outside the room, as to whether something like the right to concealed-carry would cut down on hate attacks like the one that happened in your neck of the woods a few months ago. That some might agree, that self-defense may trump political correctness, would astound many, I’m sure.

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Actually Joe, the TP is pretty narrowly focused so there is little disagreement until you start adding in the fundamentalist attitudes, which really has little to do with the TPs fundamental goals of a smaller, more responsible government which is held accountable for their actions and a government that lives withing its means without undue taxation upon its citizens.
            The TP takes no stance on social issues, just financial responsibility and accountability. Although there is the occasional independent group that does, it is not the focus of the TP in general.
            Perhaps your thinking of the split between the TP and establishment progressive republicans, who want to take us down the same destructive path as progressive democrats, just at a slower rate. A lot of divide and dessention there as the establishment GOP sees the TP as a threat to their fat cat, do nothing, status quo and would gladly joing forces with the progs to destroy The TP to save their fat cat arses.

          • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

            You’ll have to excuse Joey. He’s not exactly up on what the TEA Party believes.

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Not sure what youre saying here guy, usually I get you, on this post not so much.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            My general drift is that the Left, in order to have any traction, must build up in its supporters a sense of victimization and powerlessness. The Left cannot allow the “victims” to think for themselves and think in terms of acting on their own behalf without the Lefties as an intellectual elite– for the “vics” to do so would defeat the Lefties’ purpose and reason to exist.

    Memo to GLAAD:

    Phil Robertson is entitled to an opinion just as everyone else. Right now, he has more pressing ventures to attend to. Like tending to a duck blind. And setting up next season pf “Duck Dynasty”.

    Maybe you can get Sandra Fluke to help stage a protest, “sit in” or something.

    • http://www.dougdodge.com/ Doug Dodge

      this quote from the article says it all….“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job,” Robertson told GQ. “We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus – whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later.”

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      Re: “Right now, he has more pressing ventures to attend to. Like tending to a duck blind.” Yea, that’s the virtue of devout Christians. They’re so well adjusted that issues like this pale in comparison. In Phil’s case, he probably thinks, “A&E suspended me? Ok. Maybe the whole family? Ok. We could lose millions of dollars? Ok. GLAAD is denouncing me? Ok. People might threaten my life? Ok… shhhikk shhhikk… I’ve got plenty of double-aught buck.” :-)

      • Jack Deth

        It’s really sad that atheists and gays seem to be the predominant, never satisfied clients of bottom feeding lawyers seeking deep pockets.

        There are already several petitions to ‘A&E’ to take Mr. Robertson off “hiatus” and back in the show,

        Pretty sure GLAAD’s going to get over themselves and lose this one. But you won’t hear or see about it in the media.

    The Robertson’s will survive because of their strong values and respect for family. A&E on the other hand may find this decision one that was made out of the bullying pressure from the groups who do not want to have any opposition to the agenda of the day. The victims in all of this are the individuals who finally had a program to view that did not have any of us reaching for a remote or scurrying our families out the room and frantically searching for the remote. A&E executives need to venture outside their plush offices to see how popular this family is because of their values and faith. More feel the same way Phil does than the alternative lifestyle groups who thrive on one crisis after another!

    I don’t understand why people are mad that a private company suspended an employee. I’m surprised “conservatives” are outraged by this. This dude isn’t showing the character of Christ, Christ defended Mary Magdelene and changed her life through love not ridicule. That’s the Christian way.

    • Tigerspike

      Just for clarification; where did he ridicule?

      • Cory

        He equated it to beastiality. That’s not a good way to change someone’s attitudes towards it. You must change minds with love.

        • Tigerspike

          To be fair, he listed it alongside a bunch of sexual sins, which is not exactly equating it with bestiality.

          • Cory

            He equated it to beastiality and terrorism my friend. That doesn’t shine a good light for us Christians who are trying to change minds through kindness, not condemnation. I wish those in the public sphere would be more Christlike then there wouldn’t be this “war on Christianity.”

          • Tigerspike

            So should he shy away from calling sin ‘sin’? Because that is wrong. Are we shining Christ’s light by pretending the darkness is also light? That sin is not sin?

            The only “war on Christianity” that we should concern ourselves with is internal. If we are not showing both truth and love, we are not showing the reality of Christ.

          • Cory

            Christ didn’t attack Christ showed love. Read the Bible and you’ll see that. I’m just glad God isn’t judgmental as us, or we’d be screwed.

          • Tigerspike

            I do read the Bible, regularly, and yes, Christ shows love. A love that also tells us, “Go and sin no more.”

          • Cory

            But we must show love 1st not condemnation. That doesn’t open up hearts.

          • Tigerspike

            I agree with you that much about showing love, but we must also be honest in our beliefs.

          • Cory

            As I said earlier, I have no problem with what he said, but as a representative of a company they have the right to suspend him. If I was wearing my hospital gear and was on the news talking about a subset of people, I’d be suspended or fired too.

            Actually I’m in a chair my friend not a hole. Again man you and I won’t see eye to eye on this and that’s fine. Enjoy the rest of your day bud.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Thanks for proving my point yet again that you had no valid argument.

          • Cory

            You had no valid argument my friend, and that’s why I ended the thread. Good night and Merry Christmas.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            That’s quite the present under your tree – denial *and* projection, all wrapped up in a bow.

          • Cory

            Actually I didn’t get the projector this year. I have to wait until the man cave is finished. I’m pretty sure you can’t buy denial, so I wasn’t able to acquire that either. Thanks for asking my friend.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            The saddest part is that you think you’re actually being clever.

          • Cory

            Nope just giving bs responses to bs statements. I see why you enjoy this, it is fun.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Good to see you finally admit your argument was BS.

          • Cory

            Your argument is bs indeed.

            Still looking in that mirror, eh?

            No sir, actually I’m looking at a packet of brain imaging.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Like your “image” of Robertson equating homosexuality and bestiality?

          • Cory

            Nope i don’t believe there was an image of that in my packet.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Wasn’t an image of it in the article, either.

          • Cory

            Yeah I don’t know how’d the photographer would capture that. That would be a talented photographer though.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            You are lying, and you are lying about who you are as a typical vile progressive. I have seen this same line of attack from leftists on every site I have been to discuss this issue.so the marching orders have gone out on how to spin this.

          • Cory

            What part of my statement do you disagree with? Do you disagree that God is love? She we not love our neighbors? I don’t understand how promoting that God is love and loving my neighbor is vile. If so, I’m proud to be vile. Love The Lord with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself are the two greatest commandments, so I don’t know how you disagree with that my friend. Maybe you should calm down and read the Bible.

          • ajsdaddie

            Love the sinner, hate the sin.

            You really need a new talking point, Cory.

          • Cory

            Gods love isn’t a talking point my friend. It’s everlasting.

          • ajsdaddie

            You can stop with the “my friend” moniker. We’re not friends and it’s very presumptuous of you to think we are. In the meantime, we’re not talking about the state of God’s love. We’re talking about sin. God hates sin. Jesus hates sin. There is no doubt about that.

          • Cory

            As long as you’re a child of God you’ll be my friend and brother/sister. I haven’t denied that Jesus hates sin. But thankfully He approaches us differently then humans.

          • ajsdaddie

            No, I won’t be your friend because you are dangerous. Your brand of hipster theology is probably one of the root causes of much of the moral decay in our country.

            But hey, I still love you. I just don’t like you very much.

          • Cory

            I’m a little young to be a hipster as I was born after the 60s. I don’t understand your dislike of me, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this conversation. I feel you’re getting too personal and obviously are upset. I’m not contributing to the moral decay in the world, sin is. I feel like people are so divided even in the Christian church on how to approach these issues when we have an example of how to go about things. We need to get back to that instead of letting our personal feelings and biases get in the way.

          • ajsdaddie

            No he did not equate it with bestiality except that he said it was a sin. Just like adultery.

            He was being ABSOLUTELY Christian in that he identified the sin but professed love for the sinner. If you truly believe that a certain behavior is a sin, especially one that can endanger your immortal soul, then as a Christian it’s pretty much your obligation to point it out lest the sinner go to eternal damnation. Anything less is not love.

            But really, I don’t expect you to understand that. I consider you to be something of a “concern troll Christian” telling other Christians how they should go along to get along.

            Good Christians don’t do that. Good Christians bear witness.

          • Cory

            I’m a troll because I believe that God is love? Ok well I’ll gladly be a troll if that’s what you believe. Secondly I never said go along to get along you’re making that up my friend, but how did Jesus approach Mary? Did He say Mary you’re a whore? Did He first tell Zaccheus you’re a cheat? No what He did was He talked to them on a personal level and changed their minds that way. Now am I a troll for wanting to follow Jesus’ example that He laid out for us? Thirdly I didn’t call anyone a bad or good Christian, you said that. I said we should approach those we are trying to reach with love first and through love correction will come as it did in our lives. Now I don’t know where you disagree with me but that’s explicitly in the Bi

          • ajsdaddie

            God is love, and to Christians, their duty is to profess the faith. And if you think Jesus was all sweetness and light, then you’ve never even read the Bible.

          • Cory

            Show me in my statement where I said that. I said God approached people with love and through love peoples lives were changed. You’re just making up statements my friend.

          • ajsdaddie

            Okay, then, show us where in Phil’s statements he is not loving? He says very clearly that we should all love one another. Or did you skip that part?

          • Cory

            No actually I read that and I agree with him on that part of his statement.

          • ajsdaddie

            That was his entire statement on homosexuals.

            Any other comments were about the act of homosexuality which he believes is a sin, and which he also considers illogical.

          • Cory

            Hey you and I are going to never see eye to eye on this. I believe in approaching a person with love first and you don’t which is fine. We have different tactics. Obviously your tactic along with the majority of Christians isn’t working because homosexuality is growing like a weed. Once we get back to the examples of Christ then we can begin to change this world.

          • ajsdaddie

            You’re absolutely, stark raving mad. “Homosexuality” isn’t “growing like a weed”. I don’t even know where you would come up with something like that.

            But the “tactics” Christians use to deal with sin are always the same and have always been the same: love the sinner and witness against the sin.

            Jesus did it, and good Christians do the same. Anything less is disrespectful.

          • Cory

            Homosexuality is practiced more today than before. That’s factual my friend. I don’t know how I’m mad for pointing that out lol. I have no problem with witnessing against sin as I’ve said many times, but the approach is crucial.

        • ajsdaddie

          Read more, young Cory. He listed it alongside bestiality and adultery as things he considers to be sins based on his understanding of the Bible.

          Interestingly, I don’t see adulterers all up in arms and demanding for his head. Or goat-lovers for that matter.

          • Cory

            Fortunately beastiality isn’t practiced by many Americans so even if they were upset no one would hear about. Adulterers can’t complain because a lot of them are in our church.

    • ajsdaddie

      Christians love the sinner, hate the sin, and that’s exactly what Phil said. A&E’s only possible position is that it disagrees that homosexuality is a sin, and that it demands all employees agree completely as to what is and is not a sin.

      That’s gonna be a tough position to hold.

      • Cory

        I don’t think A&E really cares. Their boss is Disney and that’s who probably made the call. I agree that Christians should love ourselves (the sinners) and not the sin, but you don’t approach a person by saying first your lifestyle is wrong. Jesus didn’t approach Zaccheus and say your tax lifestyle is wrong, He simply said I’m going to your house today. That’s how we should approach this, not through public condemnation of a person’s lifestyle.

    You kind of have to try to understand something, before you can fail to understand it. Being gay? Not something I’m interested in understanding. I doubt Phil was interested either.

  • EDUCATEDPATRIOT

    When your outrage is based on the SOURCE of the comments, not the COMMENTS themselves, you have lost all credibility to be OUTRAGED.

    So, GLAAD, STFU.

  • TheKingJAK

    I don’t agree with homosexuality, both from a religious and scientific standpoint (The latter being anatomically and biologically speaking), but I have two friends who happen to be “Gay” in the American sense, and they’re cool people who I’ll always standup for as individuals. The same can also be said for my atheist friend, my many liberal friends, and a plethora of other people whom I strongly disagree with on a number of issues, but who also happen to be good, respectful people. I’ll even go so far as to say this: If somebody doesn’t agree with somebody else, then they have a right to not even hangout with those people. You can absolutely show common decency towards others in everyday life, without agreeing with them and/or their lifestyle. Really, it is that simple, we don’t have to agree with a person on every last issue in order to respect them, and we also don’t have to respect every other person on this planet (Respect is given where’s it is deserved). I also have a strong dislike, rather disdain, for those homosexuals who always feel a need to make their sexuality an ever present issue, and worse yet are those who are more intolerant of other beliefs and other opinions, but who somehow consider themselves a moral authority to bash straight people for not agreeing with them. There are plenty of homosexuals who are also themselves bigots, and they own no more higher ground in terms of respect and tolerance than heterosexuals as a whole (I’m not referencing Robertson when I speak of “Bigots”, just to be clear, he’s a cool dude who’s simply unafraid of the “Gay mob” when speaking his God given American mind). So yes, homosexuals, you can absolutely possess the right to live your life as you see fit, but don’t expect everyone else to accept it, and additionally understand that people who might even respect you as a person don’t agree with your lifestyle and views on this specific matter.

    GLAAD – I’m actually happy to see the left continue to open their mouth and prove their intolerance.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    The worst enemy of the gay rights movement is the gay rights movement. GLAAD’s hypocritical stance on this situation just underscores this point even more.

  • notenoughtime

    The sad commentary on this situation is that those who are Christian are not permitted to state their opinions but those who do not value a higher power are not held to the same standards. The Robertson’s will survive, the agenda driven groups, media and press will bask in their ability to get a popular program with values and morals taken off our channels, and their narrative will continue at the detriment of our moral compass. There is a reason why this show was popular, and it must be eliminated.

    I’m sick of people saying it was ‘his opinion’ and it isn’t, it is what the Bible teaches and anyone who claims to believe in it should believe it too. Something no one is saying is GQ had an agenda when they asked Phil about homosexuality and they knew what his answers would be. They need to be boycotted just as much as A&E.

  • Filomena M Johnson

    This is so utterly ridiculous, the man has a right to his opinion and his religion.. you don’t want to know don’t ask!!! My best friends is GAY, and I was Not offended. Phil repeated over and over it was his belief and opinion, last I checked we had freedom of speech(unless China owns that too now), and this was obviously a set up by A&E why would YOU (A&E, YOUR FAULT) ask that QUESTION in the FIRST PLACE!!!! anticipating his answer as a Christian what his response would be. Gays should actually be aiming their disgust on A& E not Phil, I am sure Gay have their own opinions and we wouldn’t or shouldn’t judge them for it. A&E cause the problem they should be apologizing to the GAY COMMUNITY and leaving Phil ALONE….That’s the problem in this state everyone thinks they are entitled, they are right and everyone else is wrong, their view is the only view, and hate others that don’t agree with them ridiculous, this would be a very boring place if we all were the same. Go to the SOURCE of THE ISSUE and PUNISH THEM (A&E) they get away with this and people and stations. and business, TEENS that kill people all get away with this behavior, because we do nothing about it. If you child shoots someone, bullies someone, steals something, you punish them, you don’t punish the person that urged, asked, or forced, them to do it, you punish the one that said they saw it, or told on them….REALLY PEOPLE….this is what is wrong with USA today….Take responsibility in what we do, say, or cause…and it would be right…..A&E should do press conference and admit to asking the question was wrong and Apologize to the GAY Community, and quit asking stupid questions like that, their are enough other stupid questions you can ask.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I think GLAAD is trying to make a mountain out of a Molehill (or Bayou, in Phil’s case)…They should NEVER usurp the First Amendment to promote their lifestyle, and criticize anyone who disagrees with them. That’s where “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one) recognizes our diverse opinions, thoughts, and beliefs. And if GLAAD doesn’t like Phil’s opinion, they can go “express themselves” elswhere (How about IRAN?). Jawamax 8<{D}

I side with Phil… for those who are gay, you can enjoy your happy ride down the road of life, and in the end, find out if you arrive at the gates of hell or not.

    GLAAD is a corrupt organization in bed with NETWORKS/MEDIA. THAT is their AGENDA. If you look at their IRS 990 going back to at least 2009 it tells the story. Who is on the board. What money they spend and on what. ALL spent on sucking up to networks, media etc.

    Back in 2009, during the Adam Lambert AMA scandal, it took Jarrett Barrios (GLAAD President) FOUR attempts at a press release before they finally supported him. ONLY after all the gay blogs attacked them for a month for being corrupt and not sticking up for Lambert. They kept issuing “revised” statements about the incident that finally ended up in an apology to Lambert for taking so LONG to do so.

    There was some cross pollination with GLAAD board members/execs and ABC board members/execs sitting on each other boards. IT was right on the IRS 990. They have no shame and KNOW (just like Obama) that the average person is NOT going to even research anything and take whatever they say at face value.

    Finally, Barrios resigned for corruption.

    The way to get to these groups is THAT way. EXPOSING them. It proves the Conservative claim that the media is Anti-Constitutional/Conservative when you see the money changing hands right on the freaking IRS FORM!!

    It leads to disease – fact
    It does not lead to reproduction – fact

    If people are born that way how come people have tried to rape me, or just pressure me into being turned out. Admittedly the rape attempts were both by gang members acting out of hatred and not lust. Yet the ones who refuse to take no for an answer evoke a reaction of violence (which I have always practiced self-control)

    The answer usually given is: “you just don’t know it yet”

    Bullshit.

    Yet nowadays 6 year olds know it and if a counselor tried to show them otherwise…. they lose their job. Go to jail. Get fined.

    My former “gay” boss(of 10 years) has had sex with more women than I have (just sympathy right? and no im not the 40 year old virgin). Yet meanwhile has NEVER had sex with his boyfriend of x years.

    The funny part is being gay was an “identity”. An underground culture for those who wish to participate.

    What kind of monsters are in store if they believe its okay and bring it to the public.

    I had a closeted friend. He was VERY insecure. Apparently he would find the willing just so he could feed his ego long enough to feel secure around a woman. Usually a mess of a woman, more insecure than him. That he would hold hostage and beat, feed drugs and alcohol, convince them they were crazy.

    When his down low hook up left for L.A. he went to work on me trying get me away from my faith as he thought that was the reason I wouldn’t sway.

    Soon he realized he not only couldn’t change me, but the kind of non-judgemental, platonic love I had shown him over the years actually was changing *him*

    He literally tried to sell me a hot car and plant drugs on me… these are good people though.

    Don’t even get me started on all the lesbian friends I’ve had that began to like me a little too much and their butch controlling girlfriends who’d decide I was not someone they could hang around anymore. Including the time they tried to see if I would rape one of my friends while keeping a goon in the next room.

    I’ve turned more than one lesbian straight because I have an agenda and despise them…. oh wait no. It was because I liked them and they liked me. Man and woman = natural attraction.

    Most gay men I know were raped… repeatedly. That or the rapist.

    Most gay women I’ve known were raped or molested.

    Yet I’m a bigot cause I would NOT like to see these attrocities take place.

    I can’t believe we have to explain this, over and over, every time a
    media figure loses a job (or just gets a for-show suspension) over
    saying something stupid, but: Losing your job for saying something that
    embarrasses your private employer–even if that is a media outlet–is not a
    free speech issue. It is not a First Amendment issue. It may be dumb,
    it may be justified, but it is not a constitutional violation. It is not
    for Phil Robertson, Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, Don Imus, The Dixie
    Chicks, Rush Limbaugh, or anyone else. People changing the channel or
    not buying your products because of what you said is not “censorship”;
    nor is losing a business deal for same.

    Mr. Robertson has certain opinions and he is entitled to state those opinions in public. That is called tolerance. But tolerance does not mean refraining from criticizing someone’s opinion. That too is free speech. It does not matter how sincere his belief is or whether it based upon fact or not.
