The patriarch of Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson has once again delivered an anti-homosexuality speech and this time around it may just land him in big trouble.
It would be a miracle if A&E was to keep him on air any longer after what he’s done this time around. Phil Robertson, the head patriarch of reality TV show Duck Dynasty has made some vituperative hate speech against homosexuals.
It seems he has homophobia and is mighty proud of the fact. The last time he was accused of this sort of rant against gays and lesbians, he was let off the hook after a petition was signed supporting his right to continue his stint on Duck Dynasty.
But it looks like the bearded paterfamilias is still spewing the same old poison from his tongue. The conservative man is dead set against what he calls homosexual offenders.
In fact, his extremely rigid stance reeks of reaction formation. Maybe he is subconsciously attracted to the very thing he blames so vocally in public.
His recent hate-filled voice was recorded in a video clip. This may as well spell his doom on the program Duck Dynasty. He has been guilty of comparing homosexuality to sex with animals in the past.
He apologized for the furor upon his statement. But it was tongue in cheek. Now he is back with a vengeance and up to his old ways. A snake remains the same even if it sheds its skin.
"Months after the reluctant reality TV star made a public apology for his hateful comments about gay people," RadarOnline.com has learned that "he’s still spewing vitriol behind the doors of his local church, blasting “homosexual offenders” during one recent rant captured on video."
He made a lot of noise and uttered wishy-washy spiel about sin and other meaningless stuff that all amounted to nothing but a tale told by an idiot.
According to TMZ, "The "Duck Dynasty" star gave a fire-and-brimstone sermon on Easter Sunday ... way stronger than his comments to GQ last December that triggered a brief suspension from the show."
“What’s [Jesus] coming back for? …” Robertson asked the fans at Whites Ferry Road Church in his hometown of West Monroe, La., on Easter Sunday, April 20. “To bring salvation to those who are waiting for it. Are you waiting on Jesus? Or are you afraid to see that sky busting, you see him coming? You got two lists.”
“I gave some guy one list,” he said, apparently referring to the GQ interview. “You say, were they mad at you about that list? They were mad at me.”
“You say, why’d they get mad at you?” he continued. “‘Cuz instead of acknowledging their sin, like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins. Don’t deceive yourselves.”
He shouted, “You want the verse? The news media didn’t even know it was a verse! They thought I was just mouthing off. Is homosexual behavior a sin? The guy asked me. I said, do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived.”
“Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” Robertson said.
This new scandal could just be the last straw that broke the camel’s back. A&E will have to seriously consider what they want to do about this pompous old windbag who cannot stop speaking whatever comes to his mind.
