Jim Geraghty crushes A&E’s Phil Robertson suspension with shattering question, idea [pic]

    So, A&E, if any of your shows' cast members quoted Corinthians 6:9-11 -- automatic suspension, too?

Bam.

As Twitchy reported, Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” has been suspended by A&E for voicing his religious beliefs in an interview with GQ magazine. Fox News’ Father Jonathan Morris wondered if quoting the bible regarding homosexual acts would now get one fired. Jim Geraghty made shattering points along the same lines.

More from Geraghty at National Review:

    A&E, the network that airs “Bates Motel,” the series “The Killer Speaks,” which interviews convicted felons, and “Psychic Tia,” and that has in the past aired “Growing Up Gotti,” “Criss Angel Mindfreak,” and “The Sopranos,” has deemed “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson unsuitable for its broadcast because of an interview answer where he paraphrased Corinthians 6:9–11.

    That’s where they draw the line!


Funny that. Geraghty has a suggestion for Mr. Robertson:

Maybe Phil Robertson can get A&E to reconsider if he says he was just citing the Koran.—

Brilliant. That, of course, would be totally acceptable. But this Twitter user points out how that idea might not work:

Double bam.

And Kurt Schlicter brings it all home with a Pajama Boy reference to boot.

Bingo. What is wrong with this picture? (Aside from the disturbing plaid onesie, natch.)
