Modem pooped out Monday and I was almost 3 days without a phone or internet access. I’ve had no small amount of drama in that time,but I believe it’s getting better. I was going to post an article about Phil and Jase Robertson from DD snubbing Baba Wawa for her ‘most interesting people of the year’ extravaganza. DW watched last night and she did speak to Si,Willie,Jep,Miss Kay and the wives. Phil and Jase skipped the show to go hunting. Miss Kay said she prayed she didn’t die between November and February because Phil wouldn’t come to the funeral.
Note:I heard on the radio this morning that her ‘most interesting person of the year was….wait for it….TA DA! Cankles Klintoon,the Beastess of Benghazi.Who else would she pick?
I really wish at times like these I had Chrissy’s skills,but I’ll do the best I can.
GQ got an interview with Phil and,of course,had to goad him about his views on homosexuality.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson stated. “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.”
Robertson described in the interview how sin is becoming acceptable in America and that the country needs to turn back to its Christian values.
“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,” Robertson told GQ. “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.”
Of course,the left went apoplectic and screamed at the A&E network,which quickly suspended the patriarch.
The leftards are famous for being tolerant of anyone’s views as long as they agree with them.
‘Duck Dynasty’ Dad Suspended Following Anti-Gay Remarks
On Wednesday afternoon, A&E, the cable network which airs “Duck Dynasty,” suspended Phil Robertson indefinitely from filming, issuing the following 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.”
GLAAD issued the following statement in response to A&E’s decision, attributed to GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz: “What’s clear is that such hateful anti-gay comments are unacceptable to fans, viewers, and networks alike. By taking quick action and removing Robertson from future filming, A&E has sent a strong message that discrimination is neither a Christian nor an American value.”
Pardon me while I throw up a little.
Who do you suppose is one of the first to come to the support of her friend?
Sarah’s not alone
They ran a DD marathon last night,so they’re still cashing in on the biggest hit they ever had without ever figuring out why it’s so popular.
Phil explains why the network tried to get him to stop saying ‘in Jesus’ name,because he might offend some Muslims.
Christianity on trial in Duck Dynasty controversy
First of all, Robertson spoke of homosexual behavior – i.e., acts. He took care not to characterize homosexuality per se as sinful. This is quite consistent with Christian doctrine of loving the sinner while hating the sin. That crucial point obviously eludes The Hollywood Reporter. But there is a second serious distortion in the Hollywood Reporter summation:
The only comparison involved was that both are sins. As is adultery, as is swindling and a number of other sins mentioned by Robertson. THR might as well have stated “Roberson compared homosexuality to adultery,” but that would not have sparked the same level of outrage. And the goal here is to generate outrage, so as to make expression of disapproval of homosexual acts an absolute taboo.

‘Duck Dynasty’ vs. ‘Pajama Boy’: Two Americas?
Much of the criticism coming from conservatives (regarding A&E’s decision) has focused on the fact that a). Robertson was merely stating an orthodox Christian position, and b). that this is just his opinion — and he’s entitled to it (and besides, why are people so offended these days?).
But I’ll make another observation: This may be an attack on “unsophisticated” country folks as much as it is an attack on orthodox Christianity.
When you consider the more effete, cosmopolitan America that “Pajama Boy” represents, you’ll get a sense for why the Duck Dynasty folks are out of touch with today’s acceptable norms. There is a huge schism between red state America and blue state America, and these two stories seem to symbolize the yawning chasm.
What the left will never,ever understand is they could take everything away from Phil they possibly could,and he’d still be content with his family,his faith,and his shotgun. I cannot imagine a stupid network messing with the hottest show that’s ever been on cable to placate some pillow-biters and rose-sniffers. But that’s just me…and about 12 million other fans of the show. Again,my apologies for not having the skill to do some cool graphics,but it is what it is.
From the boycott page: This page is to show support for the freedom of speech of Americans.
Unless Phil is reinstated to the show, we refuse to watch the A&E Channel!
