Phil Robertson is Anti-gay. Best Buy Doesn't Sell Tacos.

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson sounded off on his thoughts on gays, after he was asked his opinion of them. And obviously, the bible thumping old redneck from the backwoods of Louisiana isn't a supporter of them. I know, shocker right? Well tell that to everyone raising a damn stink about it.

A&E has now suspended Phil Robertson from the show Duck Dynasty after these remarks:

“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 tells reporter Drew Magary. “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.”

“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.”

Now, if Phil Robertson is anti-gay. Fine, that's his way of thinking and his way of life. He was asked his opinion on something, and he gave it. And the fact is, look at the guy! He loves Jesus and the Lord and all that. He's as redneck as it comes. And people are acting shocked and angry over what he said? Everyone out there is entitled to their opinion. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about voicing it. Westboro Baptist Church is the obvious wrong way to go about things. But when someone in a magazine asks a question, and you answer it with the truth, that's the right way. He isn't running around holding up signs about the matter, or making an ass out of himself on street corners. He just answered a question.

So of course GLAAD has to stomp their feet and remark back. And be ANNOYING. They're like PETA. I bet even gay people get annoyed with GLAAD. You know what the only response to this thing should be from GLAAD? "Hey, he's entitled to his opinion." That should be the ONLY response. But that wouldn't get press or anything, or drag this on, or make this seem bigger than it actually is. Phil Robertson isn't out hunting down gays, or doing anything against them. I guarantee you if a gay guy or woman walked into their shop and he saw them, he would treat them the same as anyone else.

Now that he has been suspended from the show, what will happen? Well nothing. Phil Robertson isn't going to give a shit. True, he is making millions off of Duck Dynasty. But you know what he was doing before that show ever came along? Making millions.
