Drudge Report Headline this morning:
LEADER FIRED AFTER GAY RANT
What to know what the rant was? Well I will tell you anyway, it when like this :
“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.
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.
We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists.”
Phil Robertson, gave this answer in an interview to GQ. GLAAD pops up and called Robertson’s words “vile” and “littered with outdated stereotypes” and said they were not what true Christians believe. Do you think for one minute that GLAAD has a clue what “what true Christians believe”? What GLAAD accepts as true Christians are the folks who interpret the Bible in a manner they wish for them to interpret it everyone else, in their minds are homophobic bigots hypocrites unable to see the truth because of the prejudices.
What GLAAD took as “vile”was not homosexual have sex which Mr Robertson correctly described. It was when he called this behavior sinful that is intolerable to them. But if you go back and read what Robertson said which was that not just homosexual behavior that is sinful, but so is bestiality and adultery, drunkenness, greed, idolatry, swindling, and terrorism. This is true, never heard a preacher preach otherwise that these are the Bible’s teachings, but is it also taught that sinners, of which all of us are, should be loved and taught that sinful behavior must be avoided. Thieves are not excused by their saying, “God made me to steal, so it is a thief that I am”
How this plays out is going to be interesting as Duck Dynasty is a “cash cow” for A&E’s, and they also self-labeling themselves as “supporters and champions of the LGBT community” will this support run to losing revenue? Because the upcoming season, which begins Jan. 15, has already completed filming. And they gave said that Robertson “will be appearing in some episodes of the upcoming fifth season”.
GLAAD and their ilk take the “squeaky wheel get the grease” and scream to high heaven that they have been offended, but I like Queen Gertrude in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”
