A sizeable part of the American conservative movement is enraged by A&E’s decision to put “Duck Dynasty” co-star Phil Robertson on leave from filming after he colorfully denounced homosexuality, leaving gay conservatives in an uncomfortable position.
Basing his tirade on his religious beliefs, the reality TV star vividly described gay sex and labeled it a sin in an interview published Dec. 17 on GQ magazine’s website.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” he told GQ’s Drew Magary. “That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. ”
A&E executives quickly expressed disappointment and put Robertson’s role in the top-rated cable TV show, which features his family and its duck-hunting business, on indefinite hiatus.
