GAY RANT PUTS DUCKY PHIL ROBERTSON IN JEOPARDY
A& E said to be mulling axing DUCK DYNASTY after latest PHIL ROBERTSON homophobic rant.
Not only is Phil Roberston a homophobe, he’s damn proud of it!
Months after the reluctant reality TV star made a public apology for his hateful comments about gay people, that he’s still spewing vitriol behind the doors of his local church, blasting “homosexual offenders” during a new rant captured on video.
Could this finally be the end of Duck Dynasty?
Robertson’s beliefs first made headlines in December 2013, when he likened homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with GQ magazine.
After public outcry and a temporary suspension from A&E, Robertson released a public apology that read in part, “I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”
That mellow attitude was nowhere to be seen, however, during a fiery sermon at Whites Ferry Road Church in his hometown of West Monroe, La., on Easter Sunday, April 20.
“What’s [Jesus] coming back for? …” Robertson asked the congregation. “To bring salvation to those who are waiting for it. Are you waiting on Jesus? Or are you afraid to see that sky busting, you see him coming? You got two lists.”
“I gave some guy one list,” he said, apparently referring to GQ interview. “You say, were they mad at you about that list? They (A&E) were mad at me.”
“You say, why’d they get mad at you?” he continued.
“‘’Cause instead of acknowledging their sin, like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins. Don’t deceive yourselves.”
Now, insiders say that while the negative publicity makes free publicity, it may hurt the overall branding of the A&E network and this time – Robertson may be gone for good.
