Phil Robertson Publicly Bashed Gays for Years -- A&E Knew All About It
TMZ ^ | 12/19/13 | Staff

Posted on 12/19/2013 12:10:45 PM PST by BunnySlippers

A&E knew all about "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson feelings toward gays when it hired him -- because the guy openly preached that gays were going to hell years before the series started.

Take a look at the video (above) of a 2010 sermon at Berean Bible Church in Pennsylvania ... it's pretty much your typical bible-thumping drill. Phil calls gay people shameful, perverse, heartless, faithless, senseless God haters ... destined for the burning pits of hell.

“Bashed”? Oh, it’s impossible to say anything that smacks of being “bad” about them now.

Used to be that “bashed” literally meant physical harm done to them.

Reality TV producers are pretty much the slimiest people around. Just behind people in the car business. Of course they knew about his views, and that’s why they picked that photographer. You think he’s the only pet photographer in the area? It’s so silly.

That was my thought too. It’s not like he was leading lynch parties to hunt “them” down and string them up. Yesterday it was “inflammatory” comments. Today it’s “bashing”. WTH? Now I read the naacp is getting in on the act as well.

it’s not ‘gay bashing’ to iterate what the Bible clearly and repeatedly states . Gay’s want to change or refute God’s own Word . Gays are ashamed that they are excoriated BY GOD for their prurient lifestyle choices .
Nature , God’s creation of Nature , by design created species male & female . The parts fit together properly ,aligned by nature . Reproductive organs are not designed to comport with evacuatory organs for good reason . And yet they choose push against all of these facts of nature , all for the benefit of satisfying their selfish hedonistic desires . And we are all supposed to respect that ? To me it’s sad and disgusting .

Hey, lay off the car dealers. They run a legitimate business and you can chose to buy your cars from private owners if you desire. No reason to lump them in with the scum that populate cable TV programing meetings

Phil is echoing the Bible here. So, are these actually Phil's comments?

Acting on homosexual desires is bad. It is bad for the person, bad for the family and bad for society. This is supported by endless biological, sociological, and psychological studies. It is science. Besides, your common sense will tell you that we should not encourage any activity that, if undertaken by everyone, would lead to the end of civilization within a generation. The acceptance of homosexuality is bizarre. It is akin to a worldwide push to accept and encourage anorexia.

Once again we see the Headline is a LIE. Robertson DID NOT bash gays.

He simply quoted scripture regarding them. That’s not bashing.

If it were me; I’d call them faggots, rump-rangers and pole smokers. And worse.

Now that might (maybe) be bashing. But what Phil did was not bashing.

I’m not much on boycotts, they usually have little effect on major corporations. But I don’t go out of my way to give those who oppose my beliefs money, either. So if someone can help me be better-informed about where my money goes, I appreciate it. In this case, I’d rather know if the money is going to the family or to a&e.

Over 10% of newsrooms are homosexual and push the lavender mafia agenda.

At TMZ that figure may be well over 50%.

You’re thinking of Perez Hilton — while I don’t know if he has anything to do with TMZ, Harvey Levin (who is gay) runs the show at TMZ. Perez Hilton was the judge at the beauty contest who got his pink panties in a wad over gay comments made by one of the contestants.

True if you are a Conservative—or a Christian in certain regions of America today.IMO “Bashing” is what gays do to each other when they are in a snit.

Being a hypocrite would imply they were in some sort of denial, and not willingly banking on all of this. This is a money maker for them. The show had reached its peak and people were beginning to have DD fatigue because of the market saturation. But, knowing about his beliefs from the beginning gave them a golden self destruct button...which they could press at any time to end the series or heighten interest in it. If the show had not made them money and they were contractually bound to the family...press the golden self destruct button by ratting him out to the media. If the stars got too big for their britches and unmanageable...press the button and rat them out. Remember with Jon and Kate Plus 8 imploded? The network milked it for even more money and ratings. This is the same formula: discover their “fatal flaw” that will enable you to dump them at any time, and keep that in your back pocket until it becomes profitable for you to reveal it.

It’s only censorship if someone on the left says something controversial. I doubt Phil will make the cover of Rolling Stone like the Dixie Chicks did after they said something controversial....but wait, they only offended average hardworking patriotic Americans.

America has become the Maplethorpe of world culture.

The rest of the family should hold a press conference in which they affirm what Phil said and request that A&E fire them so they can move to another station with Phil.

Anyone writing A&E should criticize A&E for their own intolerance.

Use that word, INTOLERANCE. Throw it in their faces.

Hold them to their own standards. Make them own it.
