(Newser) – Phil Robertson's recent anti-gay comments are the ones that got him in hot water, but they're far from the first ones he's ever made. TMZ unearthed video of the Duck Dynasty star giving a sermon at a Pennsylvania church in 2010, in which he says that gays are "full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God haters, they are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless, they invent ways of doing evil." So, TMZ asserts, A&E must have known all about Robertson's views when the network gave him a show. (Meanwhile: Newt Gingrich yesterday compared Robertson to the pope.)

GLAAD is mainly dysfunctional and fanatical gays. They make up 5% of the actual gay and lesbian population who live a normal life and don't wear their sexuality on their sleeve. What we have in the U. S. today is Tyranny of the Minority where everyone must live a PC life so as not to offend anyone. Being offended now and then is life. Live with it. Considering the violence and garbage on TV it seems that A&E is an example of hypocrites. Phil Pobertson has every right to say what he believes. So maybe he's just never experienced what maybe he might be wrong about.
