Duck Dynasty personality (and Tea Party hero) Phil Robertson has shares his anti-gay animus with GQ Magazine in an interview that includes this statement:
"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.
"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. 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."
Bryan Fischer, of the anti-gay hate group American Family Association, is absolutely giddy over Robertson's statements:
This would be the same Bryan Fischer who has called for gay people to be criminalized, rounded up, and treated like drug addicts - and that's just the beginning of his attacks on the LGBT community).
In a press statement, GLAAD says that Robertson’s “statement is far outside of the mainstream understanding of LGBT people."
“In Louisiana, which passed a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, 56% of the population support some sort of legal recognition, marriage or civil unions, for gay and lesbian couples according to Public Policy Polling released in August 2013.”
