“Don’t apologize Duck Dude!” goes the message from Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson’s latest supporters, the Westboro Baptist Church.

Phil Robertson’s support network includes the Westboro Baptist Church.

The Westboro Bullying Corporation has made clear that they support and stand behind Robertson’s comments likening homosexuality to bestiality. With their trademark “God Hates F*gs” hashtag, they blasted off a few tweets on the topic (as usual with the Westboro Bigot Cowards, profane language follows):

“A&E suspended Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty 4EVER for telling you fags won’t go to heaven. Hello?! GOD HATES FAGS”

@AETV Quack Quack! New York City Headquarters perfect for world class WBC picket. Stay tuned! #godhatesfags! #godhatesSSM!”

“WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH TO PICKET A&E, (236 E. 45th ST, NYC) SAT., FEB. 1, 2014 FROM 4-4:30PM. Fags run A&E! #DuckDynasty#PhilRobertson

It should come as no surprise whatsoever that the Westboro weirdos would schedule a picket in support of Phil Robertson and his comments. It should come as no surprise that they decide to praise Phil Robertson for his incendiary remarks. But Phil Robertson may want to be weary of the kind of ‘support’ he’ll receive from the Westboro Bullies. It could very well not only backfire on him, but forever associate his name with theirs.

Westboro not typical of the sentiments expressed by the Duck Dynasty star.

While Phil Robertson’s comments left many feeling strongly one way or another, he did also make a point of saying that it is not his or anyone’s place to judge who will or won’t get in to heaven, saying:

“That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus – whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

And while he did, in that statement, not lose the opportunity to group homosexuality with terrorism, he did also make clear that his views differ from those of the WBC. While many have found Phil Robertson’s comments insensitive, offensive, and discriminatory, few would do as he did and liken him to something heinous, like the pseudo-Christians of the WBC. However, Phil Robertson would do well to denounce their support publicly before it gets away from him.

I, for one, hope New York City makes us all proud and drives the Westboro bigots straight out of town.
