Phil Robertson: Jesus will cure gays, adulterers, liars

by Jeremy Hooper

Free speech:

"Jesus will take sins away, if you’re a homosexual he’ll take it away, if you’re an adulterer, if you’re a liar, what’s the difference?"

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, speaking to his bible group

He has every right to say this dangerous, scientifically discredited, deeply offensive stuff; his supporters have every right to stand by it. But they have to own it.

Personally, I don't have any desire to belabor this story. He has made it very clear that he is proudly and aggressively against the idea that LGBT people should be naturally and easily accepted in American society. We all now know. We all move forward as more informed consumers.
