‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson GQ Interview: Bristol Palin Defends Phil, Shames A&E for Suspension (READ IT)
Just days after Sarah Palin jumped to Phil Robertson's defense her daughter Bristol Palin is doing the same, E! News reports. The 23-year-old mother of one took to Facebook to shame A&E for "indefinitely suspending" Robertson following remarks he made about homosexuality and sin in a GQ interview.
In the January issue, the main character of the A&E show "Duck Dynasty" talked about how he felt about sin and marriage. He touched on topics like homosexuality, promiscuity and adultery.
"Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," he said. "Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanders, the swindlers - they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."
Following the comments A&E released a statement saying that they did not support Robertson's remarks and would be placing him on an "indefinite" hiatus from the show. Palin took to her Facebook page and posted a picture of Robertson with the caption "I support Phil Robertson and his right to express his faith and his beliefs. Shame on A&E."
She also addressed the topic on her blog in essay titled "Leave Phil Robertson Alone!"
"Everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs. I think it's so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style," Palin wrote. "This flies in the face of what makes America great - people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life."
"I hate how the LGBT community says it's all about 'love' and 'equality.' However, if you don't agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate," she continued. "It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others' opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn't support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic."
Palin said even though she doesn't agree with everything Robertson said she does believe that he has the right to express his beliefs and opinions.
"They [the LGBT community] take the easy way out every time anyone speaks out about their beliefs on the Bible," Palin wrote. "If I were Duck Dynasty, I would take my show to another channel. So much disrespect."
On Wednesday, Dec. 18 her mom, Sarah Palin, wrote on Facebook and Twitter: "Free speech is an endangered species. Those 'intolerants' hatin' and talking on the 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."
Robertson's family is also standing behind and implied that the show can't continue without him.
