Skip to comments.Phil Robertson Publicly Bashed Gays for Years -- A&E Knew All About It
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.

This is kinda like the Chick-fil-A deal.
Why are they so shocked??
“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.
It’s a circus.
Speaking the truth is now ‘bashing?’
Buy your Duck Dynasty hats and shirts to wear everywhere!
“I am against gay marriage”
He’s bashing gays!
He was cordial to the pet photographer.
Anything less than positive = bashing. We may no longer have an opinion anymore.
People that are FOR bestiality are now upset at how gays have attacked them. :)
But. But. butt.
Is it sweeps month?
I didn’t think so.
What part about correctly detailing the gay’s fave use of one’s Obamahole and religion’s teachings on the correct use of that Obamahole is bashing?
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.
There was no bashing -
there was bafflement and quoting of scripture.
The real estate guy seemed to be on the other side of the fence too.
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
BlazeTV already offered him a TV show.
Phil is echoing the Bible here. So, are these actually Phil's comments?
And carry a duck call when you protest...
Maybe a PR stunt by A&E?
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.
Who cares what TMZ says?
Haha. I’ve had some great dealings with southern dealers, actually. Guys in NYC, though, are awful.
Read Romans 1:18-32...
acceptance of homosexuality is God’s judgment on our nation
The long knives are out.
Not “Duck Dynasty”, a&e gets the money from that, buy “Duck Commander” stuff, that’s the family’s brand.
The Bible covers God’s feeling on the subject in Leviticus 18:22 and in Romans 1:20-28. What part of “abomination” and “unclean” don’t they understand?
Yep, one needs to look no further than to Kevin Jennings and Dan Savage.
It’s the message silly!
i really don’t expect much else for TMZ. TMZ loves to get inot the mud and fling it around
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.
The one that had “mother issues”?
lulz. I loved that episode!
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%.
Isn’t that site run by a blazing queen? I remember some picture of someone connected with the site, presumably a male, overweight, boarding an airplane, dressed in tight shiny pink “cheerleader” shorts and other atrocious get-up. A Perez something?
Long catty claws from hysteric gay men (the same sort who savage Sarah Palin at every turn).
Nothing butt Pajama Boyz at TMZ!!
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.
Yep, and the Bible has been clear about all kinds of sin for a couple thousand years, and not just the practice of homosexuality.
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.
Is that Perez Hilton’s site or does he just work for them?
Like a cross to a vampire, the dark side abhors the Word of G-d.
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.
Except Chik-fil-A had stopped being against gay marriage by the time they go angry at it.
Use that word, INTOLERANCE. Throw it in their faces.
Hold them to their own standards. Make them own it.
