Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson holds an unpopular view of homosexuality and he’s not afraid to tell you about it

You never ask Phil Robertson anything unless you want the blunt, hard truth and if I’ve learned from listening to him on and off his TV show, he’s gonna tell you exactly what he’s thinking. And apparently that’s what happened in an interview with GQ when the topic of homosexuality came up.

It should be no shock that the Duck Commander holds a biblical view of homosexuality, that it’s a sin. And we most certainly agree and respect him for not backing down from such a sensitive topic. But I have to admit when I read what he said…we’ll let’s just say it’s a good thing I wasn’t drinking something at the time as it would have been all over my monitor. The dude totally has a way with words!

So, without further ado…

FOX NEWS – When speaking to GQ, the “Duck Dynasty” dad spoke openly about his thoughts on homosexuality and various religious groups.

“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.”

Robertson also launched into a mini-rant about sinning.

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine,” he said. “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.”

Paraphrasing Corinthians he added: “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.”

There’s no doubt that the left will want to rip Phil Robertson up one side and down the other for his comments. But we stand with Phil here because he’s our brother in Christ.

    I’ll start this off with a Tip O’ the Hat to the whole Duck Dynasty Family. These people have more morals, character and truth about them then the rest of hollywood combined. Thanks for another hit of them scoop.

  • Darrell Griffin

    Mirrors two things I have always said.

    1) The plumbing doesn’t work. You can’t plug a male fitting into a male fitting no matter how much glue you use.

    2) How can one guy look at another guy’s hairy bunghole and say “I gotta have that !”.

    • iaintlyin

      if the alternative is moochele, i figure the guy is figurin’, “What the heck, I might as well”

      • Darrell Griffin

        Explains why he was into Danish pastries last week.

        Can’t blame the guy. That looked like a reasonably sweet dish.

      • John Huffman

        In that case both might be hairy, better spin em around for verification first.

    • John Huffman

      I do agree with your conclusion, though I read this just before lunch, and now it is less than palatable. : (

  • freeperjim

    God Himself clearly states that not only is anal teabagging wrong but it is an obamanation.

    Only someone who embraces satan and rejects God would find this “controversial”.

  • wodiej

    Jesus did not preach judgement and intolerance. He taught love. Leave the judging to Him.

    • badbadlibs

      Jesus did indeed “preach judgement and intolerance”. Jesus only insisted we don’t judge by the outward appearance, but to indeed judge righteously. (John 7:24)
      Do you think Jesus was demonstrating tolerance when he turned over the tables of the money changers?
      Don’t lead people astray with such nonsense.

    • So now proclaiming homosexuality is wrong, that it’s a sin is ‘judging’ and that’s forbidden? Oh come on. That’s pathetic.

      Me thinks you don’t know what judging really is.

    • Actually YES He did. Paul told us to CONFRONT a brother or sister who is sinning.. if they will not repent go to the pastor.. if they STILL will not stop then we are to bring them before the entire church body.. and if they will not repent they are to be thrown OUT of the local Body.

      NOW bub.. tell me please how we are to turn away and NOT say something to a sinning brother or sister? The Bible says if they DO REPENT.. it has covered a multitude of sins.

      This CRAP about “not judging” has crept into the church for far too many years. Yet the Scriptures themselves help us understand how to judge RIGHTEOUSLY.

    • timsrighty

      Jesus sure as hell judged the Temple. Wrecked the place in fact. By the way Jesus was about love, moreover though, He was all about the TRUTH.

  • Sentinel

    What the world either fails to understand or accept is that to the Christian, the Word of God is our compass and so much more. If God is against it (and He clearly is against homosexuality), then we are against it. We don’t accept sin but we love the sinner. We don’t conform to this world, we strive to follow and emulate Christ. It’s really that simple.
    And that’s what makes us ‘controversial’ in their eyes. We won’t compromise and accept deviant behavior. So we become the bad guys – the ‘extremists’. God said it would be this way… so fine. So since we refuse to swim with the sinner and climb into bed with them on this matter (or any other) – I can sleep well at night and enjoy the peace that only God can give. Besides, the few homosexuals I’ve know and work with… are absolutely miserable. Some are seriously suicidal. Coincidence?

    • Like I was saying to wodiej below, this “not judging” crap has crept into the church over the last few generations (since the 60’s). Jesus told us we CAN judge, but we must judge righteously and that however we judge – WE will be judged. Paul told us to confront sinning brothers & sisters to help them repent. In the end if they do not after going before the ENTIRE local body.. they are to be thrown out of the body.

      We can judge peoples words & actions.. Jesus told us we will know them by their fruit. We make a judgement on those things.. we’re SUPPOSE to. But too many are into this thing about not offending people. Jesus was an offense to thousands LOL

      • But Sentinel didn’t say anything about “not judging”.

      • Sentinel

        Recently, my Pastor preached a series from Luke 6 which in part says to not judge others (specifically – Luke 6:37) . Regrettably, I and most of us still judge people and things… human nature I guess. But that can make us come off as self-righteous and turn people off to Christ’s message. Plus, as you pointed out, I don’t want to be judged for judging others.

        I believe we are to ‘judge’ sin (which I think is sorta what you are saying)… but again, without the grace of God, we’d still be dying in our own sin. And if we sin again, we must repent and through faith and obedience, not commit that same sin again.

        Regarding homosexuality, I believe the practice and/or lifestyle of homosexuality is a sin… and I don’t support it. I do try to embrace every human being and love the person the way Jesus loves us. So, I hate (judge?) the sin but love the sinner. I always strive to follow Christ’s example and obey His Word.

  • Rick2340

    He better be careful – they are going to cancel his TV show if he keeps talking like that.

    • Watchman74

      Could be, but I don’t think he cares.

  • patriot59201

    Truth! Darkness hates the light because it exposes the heart of man. God’s Word is light. You either love darkness or light. So simple a child could understand. Thanks Ducks! Preach!

    • I didn’t even see your comment, I said the same thing! Amen!

  • Phil: “Duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, GOOSE!”

    GQ: “Yikes! We shouldv’e seen that coming. Would you like a complimentary Armani suit, a cashmere sweater, and a shave?”

    Phil: “Aaahahahahahaha. Sure. Just kiddin’.”

    Keep telling the truth Phil. That’s what it’s there for 🙂


    Love them! Love Right Scoop! Thank you!

  • B-Funk

    I love the homosexual, but I hate the sin. Just like any other sinful person. I won’t accept their life choices, but I will love them unconditionally.

  • People who live in darkness HATE the “light” Jesus said.. it Exposes them. The Light of the World is Christ. The Holy Spirit exposes our sins so that we will be ashamed of them and repent (turn away) of them.

    I have used 1st Corinthians 6:9-10 many times when people say homosexuality is NOT a sin.. I remind them that God does NOT change His mind. That he destroyed two cities for this very sin. But, those verses also condemn “running around” and having sex outside of marriage.. adultery.. theft and other things.

  • GRITSMama

    Yeah…this is the obvious mindset. *remember- he’s a Christian. That’s why we love him!!! And we love what God has created, and what He beheld as “good”. Marriage between man and woman. Selah

  • nibblesyble

    I love Phil, what I love most about him is he only cares what Father God thinks of him and not the world!

  • John Huffman

    He just stated the truth. you got to give him kudos for that. Christians don’t hate the sinner, just the sin. God asks us to be like his son Jesus. We will never be perfect on our own, but we are perfected through Christ. The truth is what it is, let the chips fall where they may, though the liberals howl and moan, they cannot change the truth. Believe it or face the consequences.

  • Kelly60

    and here comes the IRS in…3…2…1

  • Okay, I like the show (what I’ve seen of it) and I like these guys for their values. But the K-Missus took me shopping last night and I swear Disney’s Lion King merchandising had nothing on the Duck Dynasty stuff. I propose a new internet rule:

    If it exists, there’s a Duck Dynasty version of it.

    • Laurel

      I would be willing to bet there is. Stuff is everywhere.

  • He’s definitely colorful in his description. Still haven’t watched an actual show, but I do love these guys. I even bought my son a Duck Dynasty Chia pet head for Christmas (don’t tell!) and I hate chia pets.

    • giveususfree

      I’ve watched a handful of episodes, just to see what all the commotion was about. The show really doesn’t do anything for me, it’s looks highly scripted and short on actual “reality”.
      And because I know the Left hates Duck Dynasty, that makes me WANT to like it, but I just can’t, it seems too scripted and phony to me – the things they say and do on the show I mean, not the people on the show, they do seem great in interviews.

      Moonshiners > Duck Dynasty

      • I’ve seen quite a few interviews and Phil’s preaching and I really like them. They seem like such down to earth people. I don’t watch tv at all, haven’t for a long time. Don’t have cable or satellite, so whatever I do watch, I see here or a few other sites lol.

        • giveususfree

          I broke my plasma TV back in June, and went without TV for 3 months, and the only thing I really missed were the Red Sox games.

          • While I’m sorry you broke it, it still made me lol. 😀

    • Crassus

      Better off watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory on TBS instead. Kaley Cuoco is a lot better looking than Phil Robertson.

      • Well I don’t pay too much attention to other women’s looks, but I imagine so lol.

  • Mark7Seven

    I respect the opinions of everyone on this topic. I may not agree with them, but I do respect them. We all have differing views and points of view. Thankfully Phil isn’t in a position of power to impose his personal religious views on others. Outside of the “cult of personality” his influence is with his family. I just hope that none of his family has to “come out” as gay. That could put a wrinkle or two in the fabric of their family life.

    • clockwindingdown

      “I respect the opinions of everyone on this topic. I may not agree with them, but I do respect them.”

      “I just hope that none of his family has to “come out” as gay. That could put a wrinkle or two in the fabric of their family life.”

      Could you show where in there you show “respect” for his, “Opinion”! After reading what you wrote you certainly express otherwise very clearly… Respect is more then platitudes!

      • KenInMontana

        “Respect” has nothing to do with agreeing with someone else’s opinion.

        • clockwindingdown

          Correct you are. However the second quote showed no respect, rather it was an attack against one’s opinion and belief…

          • KenInMontana

            Sorry, but I just don’t see that as an attack, just a statement, nothing more.

            • clockwindingdown

              As you are entitled…

    • MizMak

      So, why does the “politically correct” thought police get to impose their “religious” views on everyone? They don’t respect my/our rights in this country to express simple common place reality: read, conduct my/our life and/or business in accordance with what has been reality from the beginning of time – like what marriage is and always has been. Or elsewhere, to celebrate simple Christmas traditions that have never EVER hurt a soul – like sing Christmas carols, or have nativity displays. And most recently, to tear down a cross -a common symbol honoring the dead since who KNOWS when – at the Veterans memorial in San Diego!? Am I to assume this is “respect”? Not. Feelin. It.

      On the subject of opinions: I respect one’s right to have an opinion. But I reserve the right to discern if that opinion is in keeping with reality or deception before I respect it. Just one more example: boy goes into girls bathroom because in his “opinion” he’s a girl. Wrong. Gender specific bathrooms were created with gender anatomy in mind, and the privacy/comfort of said gender.

    First time I visited GQ. It will be the last. I couldn’t get beyond the first paragraph. I can’t get through hardly one line with the cussing and since I personally draw the line at the usage of God’s name (or title) as a cuss word, I could go no further. Phil himself would have deplored such profanity in the write-up. Won’t be visiting that site again.

  • wilify

    Does one ever feel some painful consequence upon making a good decision? Discrimination;Discernment, beyond being governed by the province of the Eye is a decisive action, one of the mind,heart and Soul
    And what governs this? Smrti,Sutras,Verse? ,Spiritual writings all, propounded in form and substance into utterance from the bedrock of implacable truth.Or perhaps some faddish wish as they swish through life like reeds in the wind.

      • GaltLine

        Makes perfect sense…. He doesn’t care.

  • WashingtonAdams

    Let’em get mad…they don’t matter. Phil knows…

    John 15:18-25 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”

  • Ohhhh, heaven’s to betsy!!

    Americans nationwide will now stop buying his goods because he expressed an opinion. Gosh, it’s a free country! Thank goodness some people believe in biblical values. He’s very blunt and I love it!!

    You kind of get that freedom when you aren’t a politician.

  • Freddie Sykes

    If Phil Robertson is not careful, Phil Robertson will fire him from his show. Just because Rush Limbaugh didn’t fire Rush Limbaugh doesn’t mean Phil Robertson will get off as easy.

    • Crassus

      Dude, love your moniker. Say hello to Pike, Dutch, Lyle, and Tector for me.

        Sorry to have to break the news, Crassus, but all that bunch are dead. Now, it’s just me, Deke and the boys. It ain’t like it used to be; but it’ll do.

  • Guest

    Here’s the thing. The reason “Duck Dynasty” is halfway accepted by liberal media is because it’s foreign to them, they can’t explain it, their ratings are soaring, (media fawns over ratings).

  • MizMak

    Gee! He used he “v” word! I usually just point out that tab A goes in slot B….or is that tab P goes in slot V….whatever. GO Phil!!!

    Homosexuality or same-sex attraction is a symptom of a psychological problem and a*al sex is unhealthy.

    Homosexuals have the highest rate of all STDs – 40-80% times greater than the general population.

    The health problem among homosexuals has advanced beyond an epidemic to a SYNDEMIC – a situation in which symptoms of several sexually transmitted diseases combine and create an even worse health crisis and more complex treatment problem than one disease alone.

    The fastest growing HIV demographic group are Obama’s sons – young African-American MSM (males having sex with males).

  • olddog

    Been a lesbian for 45 years and I agree with him 100%…

  • jgilman1

    I disagree that Phil holds an “unpopular view”. Clearly since 34 out of 34 states that had gay marriage on their ballots voted them down.

  • McCabe

    Phil holds an extremely popular view about homosexuality. He is just one of the few that chooses to rebel against PC censorship.

  • george_porg

    He speaks God’s truth! No true Christian can support the perversion of homosexuality.


    It seems like there is no Freedom of Speech or “tolerance” for the conservative point of view. He is entitled to his own beliefs…

    • DHardy

      Hijacking the thread to push your sales…What ever!

    I just bought a Phil Robertson bobble head to show my support.

  • mrsgayle

    Phil Robertson was only quoting scripture…so A&E you want to suspend God? Then you will see a real reality show…

  • DHardy

    A&E is 90% trash anyway. they should get boycotted. Lets make an example out of them. Go after them and their sponsor..Lets make them toxic.

  • AmericanConservative

    The headline has it as ” ….an unpopular view…” which is not correct. The correct headline should have been the overwhelming majority view. The sub headline should be The “opened minded” homosexual groups attack religion and religious believers for their beliefs, again.
