‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson discusses homosexuality, now on ‘hiatus’

Duck Dynasty doesn’t hold back and the Robertson family doesn’t shy away from their beliefs.

Talking with GQ Phil Robertson discussed homosexuality and why choosing a man’s “anus” over a woman’s “vagina” is “not logical.” Now Robertson is on ‘hiatus’ from the show.

“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. 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,” A&E said in a statement.

Robertson claimed homosexuality is immoral, making the statement.

“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 said.

He added: “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.”

Robertson released his own statement prior to the news of his hiatus:

“I 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.”

    What the heck right does A&E have in suspending someone for speaking about their own personal beliefs? They should also suspend the next person who pushes a homosexual agenda. I hope the entire Robertson family walks off the set until they reinstate Phil.

  5. f***youb***pirates says:

    Phil Robertson is right.Most f****ts are pedofiles and rapist and just sickos.I guess these sick sexual degenerates cant handle the truth that theyre sick vile unaccepted freaks.
