No scrutiny for anti-Christian remarks made during GQ's Duck Dynasty Interview

It has been widely reported today that “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson has been suspended “indefinitely” from A&E for his comments on homosexuality made during an interview with GQ Magazine.

However, the author of the article, Drew Magary, has received little scrutiny for his anti-Christian commentary. He writes,

“Phil is conveniently ignoring centuries upon centuries of war, bloodshed, and human enslavement committed in the name of Christ.”

This comment should be offensive to any thinking person, particularly since the middle ages are long gone and his statement in no way represents contemporary Christians.

Is it that anti-Christian sentiment is so common now that people have stopped paying attention?

The comment that stirred so much anger by the tolerant folks at A&E came after the following exchange:

Robertson said,

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong,” he says. “Sin becomes fine.”

Magary asked him:

What, in your mind, is sinful?

Robertson responded, (as quoted from GQ):

“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,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson's sentiments are not shared by all Christians, but then again, he was giving his personal opinion in response to a question. This was enough for him to get fired. A&E has every right to fire Robertson, but they should take into account that citizens also have every right to turn to another network for their entertainment.

Twitter has been on fire, and one person asked:

The Facebook page "Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck Dynasty" has over 770,000 "likes" at the time of this writing.
