Duck Dynasty Anti-Gay Scandal


Print page

The founder of a duck call company and the main character of the A&E TV show Duck Dynasty is under attack by the gay community. Phil Robertson said some things on the show that was supposedly offensive to gay people. A&E suspended Phil Robertson off his own show because of his remarks. Phil Robertson said “It’s not logical my man, its just not logical.”

He continues to say gay marriage is sinful, and he connects it to the Bible.  Robertson said, “Starts with homosexual behavior and just morphs from there.”  He also goes on to quote a verse from the Bible, Corinthians, about homosexuality.

This ties back in with government because of the the first amendment. The first amendment of the constitution says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
