Houston Mayor Annise Parker: Phil Robertson is a 'Redneck Wingnut' With 'Completely Irrelevant' Views
In an interview with Lone Star Q, openly gay Houston mayor Annise Parker was asked to give her thoughts on neighboring Louisianan Phil Robertson and the controversy surrounding his anti-gay comments and suspension from A&E's hit show Duck Dynasty.
"I have never watched 'Duck Dynasty,' so I don't think about it much at all," Parker responded. "I've been a gay community activist since the mid-70s. It was a very different time. We were fighting to keep people out of jails and mental hospitals. What some redneck wingnut has to say about the GLBT community is completely irrelevant."
