Log Cabin Republicans Respond to Duck Dynasty Controverty

Log Cabin Republicans Respond to Duck Dynasty Controverty

Dec 19, 2013

In an interview with GQ Magazine, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson criticized gay Americans, stating that his opposition was rooted in his Christian faith. Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo issued the following statement in response:

What Phil Robertson’s comments highlight is the need to engage the evangelical Christian community on the importance of gay acceptance. The knee-jerk reaction from the left shows that their strategy to engage evangelicals is to ignore them or shout them down, but that’s no way to win allies. Rather than see this controversy as the potential end of a career, it should be the start of a conversation — one that’s been long overdue between the evangelical and the gay communities. In the spirit of the Christmas season, let’s remember to love our neighbor.
