“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson (middle) made headlines Wednesday (Dec. 18) when a new interview with him for GQ was published in which he said all sins are illogical — from bestiality to homosexuality to sleeping around with women — and that his family doesn’t judge but just wants to share Jesus’ good word with “homosexuals, drunks, terrorists” and “let God sort ’em out later.”
GLAAD rep Wilson Cruz has responded to Robertson’s remarks with a statement:
“Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.
“Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.”
Robertson also sent a statement to FOX411 via A&E:
“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.
“However, 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.”
