You didn't think he was going to stop, did you? Phil Robertson, the gay-bashing star of Duck Dynasty, has come back with another round of homophobic comments. Yesterday he called into a Christian radio show and blamed HIV, AIDS, and gonorrhea on "immoral conduct," which, in his backwards point of view, includes being gay.
"God says, 'One woman, one man,' and everyone says, 'Oh, that's old hat, that's old bible stuff.'" Robert said. "But I'm thinking, well let's see now. A clean guy—a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman—they marry and they keep sex between the two of them. They're not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. To me, either it's the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct, or, it's God saying, 'There's a penalty for that kind of conduct.' I'm leaning towards there's a penalty for it."
We're leaning towards Robertson being in intolerant asshole. And what will A&E do about it? Probably nothing, because Duck Dynasty earns buku bucks, and that's apparently more important than not being shitty to an entire group of people.
If you want to hear Robertson's awful comments for yourself, here's the audio:
