Should ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Suffer for Gay Comments? [POLL]
The star of one of the hottest shows on television is suffering consequences for multiple comments he made about gay people in an issue of GQ Magazine.
A&E has suspended Phil Robertson of ‘Duck Dynasty’ indefinitely. This comes after a recent interview with GQ Magazine, in which Robertson spoke about gay people in what some may consider an offensive manner.
The quotes came after he spoke about morality in today’s society and sinful behavior.
Robertson is quoted as saying: “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.”
Towards the end of the interview, he stated that he is not one to judge anyone: “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?”
However, Robertson is still being critiqued for this comment, for grouping gay people with homosexuals, drunks, and terrorists.
Do you think that Robertson should have been suspended for the comments that he made? Do you think that he even said anything wrong to begin with?
