The conservative leader of the Duck Dynasty clan is very open about his political and religious beliefs. He is also open about how he feels about sexuality and social issues. Phil recently gave his opinion on how transgender individuals should be allowed to use public bathrooms. His viewpoints where disclosed in an email released from the conservative group, Citizens United.
Phil put it simply, “Men should use the men’s bathroom and women should use the women’s bathroom. Just because a man may ‘feel’ like a woman doesn’t mean he should be able to share a bathroom with my daughter, or yours. That used to be called common sense. Now it’s called bigoted.”
Phil is the head of household for the Robertson family. He’s also the founder of Duck Commanders, an outfitting store for hunters in Louisiana. Although many people view Phil as a racist and a bigot, his family continually sticks up for Phil, so do fans of the show. Many people look up to Phil for his solid view of the United States based on American Values and Ethics.
The email Phil sent out via Citizens United also contained a link to a website called StandTallWithPhil.org. The website was designed for the collection of donations for the Speak Freely initiative, backed by Citizens Union. The group was founded to re-establish American Values based on Christian morals. The group also supports limited government, strong families, national sovereignty and security as well as freedom of enterprise.
Phil Robertson Has Very Clear Views On Transgender Bathrooms and is Not Afraid to Share Them
Many don’t see eye to eye with Phil Robertson who has been continually blasted for his comments about Transgender bathrooms and an interview he did with GQ Magazine. In the interview Phil stated several comments about homosexuality, that left a bad taste in many liberals across the country. The interview was taken so poorly that A&E temporarily suspended Duck Dynasty pending further notice.
As of now, Season 11 of Duck Dynasty’s premier date is still pending although many are confident this is just a temporary issue. For the most part the family is taken in great regards by the American people with the exception of a few groups. In reality however, television shows are rarely taken in by everyone in the country. Most shows have a substantial number of non-viewers who disagree with the shows standards and cast.
Duck Dynasty is no different, but the people who watch Duck Dynasty have a deep respect for Phil and his words. Phil is looked up to by millions of people across the country and will continue to be a cornerstone figure for Christians and Conservatives in America who share similar perspectives on life as Phil.
