It's Time to Get Angry Over "Duck Dynasty" Again!

Get ready to bang your head against a wall, because that sweet, sweet pain will be the only thing that can take your mind off this latest "Duck Dynasty" ridiculousness. Because, as if you could ever forget, they don't take kindly to homosexuals. We know because one of the cast members, Phil Robertson, ran his mouth all about it last year:
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
And now Phil's son, Willie Robertson, has had his own little interview on the topic. CNN asked him if he agreed with his father, and here's what he said:
“I believe what the Bible says. You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. God will ultimately decide that. We don't profess to be God and we certainly don't profess to be perfect because we have our own sins to deal with.”
OK, yeah, but does he believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible and what it says concerning gay people?
“That’s how it was said.”
Well, there you go. And remember, the Bible calls being gay an "abomination" and says that "they shall surely be put to death." So, you know, there's that.
