Bristol Palin on DUCK DYNASTY Controversy: 'Leave Phil Robertson Alone!'
Last week, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson was suspended from the reality series indefinitely by the A&E network in the wake of his anti-gay comments in the January issue of GQ. Said Robertson, "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."
Since that time, everyone from Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin to the late night host circuit have weighed in on the controversy. Today, Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alasken governor Sarah Palin gives her own take on the situation. Her blog entry follows:
"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. 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.
Everyone needs to treat others like God would, with love.
It goes both ways.
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. 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.
They take the easy way out every time anyone speaks out about their beliefs on the Bible.
If I were Duck Dynasty, I would take my show to another channel.
So much disrespect.
Season five of Duck Dynasty is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, with back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30PM ET/PT.
