Phil Robertson made some very controversial remarks about race and sexual orientation in a recent interview for GQ, and, as a result, has been suspended by A&E. This Duck Dynasty drama has drawn all kinds of supporters out of the woodwork, including fellow reality star Josh Duggar! How did the eldest son on 19 Kids and Counting respond to A&E’s decision?
Like the Robertsons, the Duggars are notorious for their conservative Christian values. As such, it should come as little surprise that the politically influential Josh Duggar is willing to side with Phil Robertson in the midst of a massive Duck Dynasty controversy. After hearing reports of the Phil’s suspension from the popular reality show, Josh took to Twitter to share his thoughts. “Phil Robertson’s anatomical comparisons were crude, but that isn’t the real controversy here. Religious intolerance shouldn’t be tolerated.”
Josh Duggar showed further support for the Robertson family on Instagram, where he posted a photo of the Duck Dynasty patriarch, along with the following popular Phil Robertson quote: “I think our problem is primarily a spiritual one…where there is no Jesus, evil always reigns.”
No word yet from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as to whether they stand by the Robertson family. But we’re pretty sure the Duggar parents would gladly take the same stance as their beloved son.
Do you agree with Josh Duggar? Does A&E’s decision to indefinitely suspend Phil Robertson serve as an example of religious intolerance? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
