GCG President Writes Letter to A+E President About Phil Robertson

After Phil Robertson, star of the hit A&E television show "Duck Dynasty" made anti-gay comments on Wednesday, Jordan Turner, President of the Global Conservation Group was outraged. Turner joins the Human Rights Campaign and NAACP in writing letters of support to the A&E Network for suspending Robertson over his misconduct.

The Global Conservation Group's letter can be found below:

"December 19, 2013

A+E Networks
235 E. 45 Street
New York City, New York 10017

Dear Ms. Dubuc,
We were pleased to learn that your network took affirmative action against Phil Robertson after his homophobic rant to GQ Magazine. When an individual compares homosexuals to bestiality during a national interview, a clear message needs to be sent conveying that such actions are simply not acceptable.
Along with his anti-gay rhetoric, he also claimed that African Americans did not suffer and were “godly happy” during the Jim Crow era.
As a star of one of the most viewed television shows in America, Mr. Robertson has an obligation and duty to ensure that his actions and comments do not hurt such a large group of people. As a gay man myself, I was deeply offended by his words. Who I am should never be compared to people that have sex with animals.
Thank you again for standing up for fairness, kindness, and equality. The Global Conservation Group and myself greatly appreciate your support.

Kind Regards,

Jordan W. Turner
President
Global Conservation Group, Inc."
