Now that their shows ratings have dropped over 50% on A&E, Duck Dynasty’s resident fake redneck son (see picture above) and CEO of Duck Commander, Willie Robertson, told CNN’s Kyra Phillips today that he believes “what the Bible says” about gay people, standing behind his crazed father Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments made last December.
“[Phil Robertson] paraphrased First Corinthians, where it talks about homosexuals, male prostitutes, drunkards, thieves.. that they’re all the same. Is that what you believe?” Phillips asked. Robertson responded:
“That’s what First Corinthians says… I believe what the Bible says, and so if that’s what [God] says, to put those in… now, you have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. You have to decide… That’s how it was said, yeah.”
Willie obviously didn’t make it to 1 Corinthians 11:14 “Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him”. If you are going to quote the damn thing as “gospel” then quote and follow it all, not just the parts that are convenient for you to and your narrow, bigoted view of the world.
