Some peoples views just have to make you laugh. It is like they are stuck in a bygone age, and whilst the world moves on, they just sit there with their entrenched, usually bigoted views.
This is the case with star of T.V hit ‘Duck Dynasty’, Phil Robertson, who decided to have an interview with GQ magazine, and tell everyone about his views on ‘modern immorality’ and the gay community.
“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.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine,” he later added. “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.”
Homosexuality is comparable with bestiality. How lovely!
Free Speech, Bigotry, or Both?
‘Duck Dynasty’, for those who don’t know is a reality T.V programme which follows the lives of a family who provide equipment for duck hunters. It is an incredibly popular programme, and these views have split opinion across the United States, with many Christians supporting Phil and his beliefs.
Robertson was originally suspended, but was re-instated nine days later, much to the disappointment of gay rights activists everywhere, who wanted to see a man with these views fired from his job.
Now I see what some people are saying. Do we want free speech or is free speech something we like until someone says something we don’t like? That is one to discuss but my freedom of speech says I can call Robertson’s views disgusting.
I also believe the guy was almost set up. Some journo asks a religious southern American his views on sin. It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that what came back may not be ‘P.C”, and would certainly sell copies of their publication.
I also realise that not all Christians feel that way. There have been plenty of religious people who have come out and stated that his views are complete nonsense. That in itself is a debate for the church in general.
This is one of the reasons that I love working for Escort England. It doesn’t matter what colour or sexuality you are, we are all just the same. We have plenty of London male escorts and their increasing popularity says to me that most people believe in this equality.
However, this whole duck dynasty saga does show that there is still a long way to go.
