No, it's not "racism". But close.
For those folks hiding under various rocks over the past couple weeks - or distracted by some kind of large, upcoming celebratory event of some kind, who knows what? - Phil Robertson is the fellow on A&Es "Duck Dynasty" who gave an interview with Drew Magary for GQ
where he mentioned how homosexuality is the moral equivalent of bestiality.
Pretty sure you can imagine how that went over.
Thing is, he's a Born-Again Christian, which tends to be the most fanatical variety; so some straight up queer-fear is to be expected from him. Even if his version of 'logic' is a little bit off:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a
man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s
got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying?
But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
