'Duck Dynasty' Phil Robertson: A Vagina Is ‘More Desirable Than A Man’s Anus’

on December 18 2013 5:57 PM

A&E's “Duck Dynasty” might be one of television's top reality shows, but the family’s image might be in peril after patriarch Phil Robertson, the founder of Duck Commander, made some anti-gay comments that many people would find seriously offensive. He essentially said homosexuality was illogical. A backlash from his GQ interview has already ensued, with GLAAD issuing a fiery response to his remarks. 

Robertson began to speak about how he believes most people have become comfortable with "sin." One of the things he identified as sinful was homosexuality and then continued his anti-gay remarks from there. "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. Instead of stopping there, he went on to paraphrase Corinthians, Yahoo noted.

"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," he warned. "Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

But that still wasn’t enough. Robertson, 67, continued to explain he couldn’t understand why a man would not be attracted to a woman and went about it in a vulgar, explicit manner. "It seems to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus," he explained. "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."

He finished his interview by adding it is not his job to condemn others. "We never, ever judge someone on who's going to heaven, hell. That's the Almighty's job," he told the magazine. "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?"

Within moments of Robertson’s offensive comments hitting the Internet, the gay-rights organization GLAAD issued a response, and slammed his statement about the LGBT community.

"Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe," GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz said. "He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans -- and Americans -- who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. Phil's decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families."

The newest season of "Duck Dynasty" is slated to air on A&E Jan. 15.
