ROBERTSON MADE ME FEEL UNSAFE IN MY OWN HOME
DAILY MAIL ^ | 12/29/2013 | Alex Greig and Ashley Coleman

Posted on 12/29/2013 1:43:15 PM PST by ealgeone

A closeted gay student living in West Monroe, Louisiana has written a powerful essay, criticizing the town's most famous residents - Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson.

Robertson made headlines after issuing homophobic comments in a GQ article, at one point comparing gay sex to bestiality, which got him put on suspension by the A&E network. But the network announced yesterday that they would be reinstating Robertson to the show, who so far has remained unapologetic about the comments.

In an essay posted on Times-Picuyne columnist Robert Mann's blog, the communications student writes that Robertson probably didn't mean to hurt anyone with his statements, he nonetheless created a hostile environment.

'He encouraged - hopefully unintentionally - a two-week-long "fag bashing" in Monroe and around the world. He made me feel unsafe in my own home. I can't count how many times I heard "faggot" over the Christmas visit home.'

As you read further into the article, the kid admits he was raised by a man just like Phil and told him his boyfriend would never be welcomed at his house. He also admits sitting in the pew at his church and hearing his preacher say homosexuals didn't deserve the same joy of raising a family due to their depravity. And the kid has the audacity to call that persecution.

From where I sit I call that preaching and telling the truth.

So to sum it up...the kid has known from a very early age his "lifestyle" is wrong. And now he's trying to blame Phil for his problems. Nice try, but no cigar. (that's for Clinton)

And doesn't make you a protected "minority"

Murderers are a minority too, should we give them Affirmative Action?

He didn't make homophobic comments, nor did he compare homosexuality to bestiality.

The little whiner need to get over himself...It not about him, and it never was about him. Phil is not them problem. The whiner need to look in the mirror, he will find his problem.

I doubt that anyone in West Monroe is going to harm him because of Phil...If someone tried, it would be a man like Phil that would come to the rescue in the time of need.

there is this young man of a former coworker...in trouble with the law and ended up with a black gay guy and when they both got out of jail, they're a "match" so to speak....

these guys are pretty pitiful...not very smart....not handsome or vigorous..not educated or talented....they'll work at low paying odd jobs their whole lives....

but they seem happy....

I feel sorry for people like this because they aint' got much to go on in this world....and I won't refuse them the little pleasure they get from being together....everyone needs a friend and a companion...

and, I have just a few gays in my extended family as well....I can't hate them....

but what I do hate are these obnoxious, arrogant prissy little punks like this guy in the story....

oh, how we have been lectured all these yrs about how they just "want to be left alone" and that is not what they are doing....they want to be queens for the day and exalted....I will not nor ever exalt them....I'll tolerate...I'll feel bad for them and their differences....I'll never understand them....but I'll never respect them nor exalt them...

I see his problem right there.

He's a 'drama queen'.

I would suggest that he step away from his keyboard for a few years until he grows up - clearly he's not yet mature enough to handle the Internetz without suffering a faux emotional breakdown from discovering that someone, somewhere has an opinion that differs from his own.

In other words, “Look at me!! I’m a special snowflake!” The world waits motionless for the next profundity from some other self-absorbed freak. Guess what, homo, God cares about you; I don’t. If you’re so worried about being attacked, get a gun.

“hearing his preacher say homosexuals didn’t deserve the same joy of raising a family due to their depravity.”

Pastor speaks the truth. Homosexual parents are missing what every child needs — a mother.

Also, homosexuals tend to lead highly promiscuous, unhealthy lifestyles — not good for parenting. The hyper-sexed homosexuals actually have a name for their open marriages — “monogamish.”

It’s the same fight Rush has had to do for decades. People reacting to what others claim he said rather than what he really did say. The kid should be more upset at those who are making things up. Imagine what a world it would be if they were held accountable for not getting their facts straight.

Correct. Contrary to the liberals, Phil Robertson (nor other conservatives) did not compare bestiality to homosexuality. Pointing out that redefining the legal definition of marriage could lead to open acceptance of bestiality is not the same as saying that the two practices are the same thing.

The liberals know that. They just use the accusation to shut down debate.

When I was that age, not only was I not allowed to bring a girl over the house but I had to be home when the street lights came on. I guess I was really oppressed!
