That is kinda hipster-y, but if I could afford vinyls and a good record player, I'd rather listen to music that way.

Not going to lie, there could be some valid excuses here.

"Aw man, my laptop's broken and this paper's due tomorrow. Too bad I only have this typewriter."
"Well, I can't afford a music playing device, I guess I've got some old records and a small record player"

So, uh, there's this reality show called Duck Dynasty about some rednecks that go duck hunting every now and then and sell duck calls. (That's a really rough summary, but only because I don't watch it.) The family that's the center of the show are definitely of the religious conservative ilk, and the dad of the show recently got suspended from the show for saying some homophobic and racially insensitive stuff.
Quote from: Recent interview with Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
That one might just be naive instead of outright racist, but there's no excuse for comparing homosexuality to bestiality and adultery with that stupid slippery slope [dukar], as he does right here:
Quote from: Recent interview with Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty
What, in your mind, is sinful?

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

And, uh, I live in the southern United States, where people aren't exactly known for...well, not being racist or homophobic, and my mom and her boyfriend in the next room are genuinely wondering what's wrong with what he said.
help me
Relics.

With every sentence in his quote about "the blacks", I said "okay, he can't dig himself any deeper than this" and then I read the next sentence and said "oh wow, he did." And then topping it all off with the idea that apparently the blacks didn't invent blues music until they were all on welfare?

On the sex part, you left out this one:
Quote from: Phil Robertson
“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Because when a man picks a woman to marry, the only thing that matters is how good her vagina is. Which he is somehow supposed to know without violating the no sex before marriage rule (or at least, without HER violating the no sex before marriage rule). Or, it's not that he specifically knows about her vagina, he just knows she has one, and vaginae are better than anuses (ani? anodes?). In which case why would it matter which woman you marry? As long as she's a woman and he's a man, that's all that really matters in marriage, right?

It's interesting to note here that in his hypothetical, he still sees himself as the active penetrator. He's saying that, given the choice between having sex with a man or with a woman, he would choose a woman, because a vagina has "more to offer" than an anus, but leaves out the fact that the man would also have a penis, which opens up other possibilities. If Mr. Robertson were to have sex with a man, he could be penetrated by the man, or administer oral sex to the man. If having "more to offer" is the deciding factor in the question of which gender is better for a man to have sex with, having sex with a man gives more options, even if a vagina offers a superior penetrative experience (If this is starting to sound like it has nothing to do with love and marriage, that may serve as a hint as to why Phil's original statement was offensive to LGBT people).

I imagine the reason he didn't factor in "I could be penetrated by a man" and "I could fellate a man" is because thinking about those kinds of things would just be too gay, which underlines his failure in this segment to imagine people who are different than himself. He considers a vagina to be more desirable than an anus, so therefore, choosing to be in a homosexual relationship is illogical. It couldn't possibly be that other people like different things than he does. He's conflating his own cognitive experience with reality.

I'm reminded of the Sally-Anne test: Sally has a cookie. She puts the cookie under a basket. Sally leaves the room. While she's gone, Anne takes the cookie and puts it under a box. When Sally comes back in the room, where will she look for the cookie? Children who haven't developed a theory of mind will insist that Sally is going to look under the box, because after all, that's where the cookie is, and it would be silly to look for the cookie in a place where it's not. They're not thinking about it in terms of "I know the cookie is under the box, but Sally doesn't know that." They can only think "The cookie is under the box."

It's one thing to say that Sally is wrong in her belief that the cookie is under the basket. It's another thing to not comprehend why Sally is looking under the basket. Saying something like "Why would you want to be gay? Don't you realize that means you don't get to have sex with women (if you're a man)?" falls under the latter.

Also this:
Quote from: @TheTweetofGod
The Duck Dynasty guy who likened homosexuality to bestiality makes a living helping people trick ducks into thinking they want to **** them.

(I miss the days when I assumed "Duck Dynasty" was a spinoff of Meerkat Manor and was just a bunch of ducks with people voices dubbed over them)
