Phil Robertson Suspended from Duck Dynasty for Homophobic Comments

at .  Updated at . Comments

Phil Robertson has been placed on indefinite leave by A&E after making anti-gay comments in a recent interview with GQ.

In a profile of the reality TV star, the 67-year old told the magazine:

“It seems to me, a vagina 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...

"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.”

In suspending Phil Robertson - whose top-rated series returns with new episodes on January 15 - A&E said in a statement:

"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty.

"His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Exactly what mr.mahoney said. Total agreement from myself and my large redneck family. Ducks dynasty is the only show watched on A&E in our home and many others, if its gone so will A&E. Not everyone in the world agrees with gay rights marriage etc., and we should not hide in a corner and keep our mouth shut because certain people in society say so, we already have to monitor too many tv shows for our children because of men kissing men etc not something that should be on tv in the first place. Bring back the way of the bible, take away the laws the government has given these people and let them hide in the closet, not us normal people. Amen.


Phil is a old school American. A rare find these days. There is a new wave of people trying to devastate our wholesome values. It is not alright for a man to get nasty with another man. It just not logical! Plus have people forgot were AIDS comes from> hint. hint?
