It's Time for Even More Offensive "Duck Dynasty" Garbage!

Just when you thought that maybe the travesty known as "Duck Dynasty" was starting to be over, just when you started to hope against hope that maybe, just maybe, you might not have to hear the special kind of offensive nonsense that comes from this family, BOOM. This happens. And we are so sorry.
Phil Robertson, the leader of the family and also the man that said those infamous remarks about homosexuality last year, opened up his mouth to spout off some more ignorance. For instance, here's his stance on ISIS, the Islamic group that beheaded two American journalists in the past few weeks:
"In this case you have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible, I'm not giving up on them, I'm just saying convert them or kill them. One or the other ... I'd much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and point them to Jesus Christ. However, if it's a gunfight and a gunfight alone, if that's what they're looking for, me personally, I am prepared for either one."
Yeah, so that's Phil, saying that he wants to have a bible study with ISIS or kill them. There's nothing problematic with that little statement whatsoever, huh? Just like there's nothing wrong with this other thing that Phil said about his earlier controversial comments:
"I don't worry too much about people hating or insulting me. I'm a sinful man, and I've made a lot of mistakes. People have reason to hate me ... All I did was quote a passage of scripture from antiquity. They're mad at me, but I'm really just quoting what God said, so He's the one they have a problem with."
Oh, that's totally the issue, Phil. If people don't agree that homosexuality is similar to bestiality, then they definitely have a problem with God. Your ignorance isn't a part of this at all, and everyone should know that your ideas of religion are, word for word, from God himself. Sure, buddy.
So when can it really be time for this family to go away?
