Duck Dynasty Kin Runs For Congress

Zach Dasher, nephew of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, is running for the US House in Louisiana. As you'd expect, his wife has an opinion on homosexuality.
In one blog on the controversy surrounding Phil Robertson’s suspension from A&E for anti-LGBT comments made to GQ, Dasher’s wife, Jil, writes that she’s seen people who have “come out of” addictions like homosexuality in her home. Dasher compares it to an addiction, akin to heroin and alcohol. “I have had folks sit on my couch who have come out of all kinds of addictions; alcohol, heroin, homosexuality, etc and hear them talk of healing and how they were able, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to overcome a life that was destroying them. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?” Dasher has made his religion a central part of his platform telling Sean Hannity, “my platform begins with God.”
Dasher is one of five Republicans running against incumbent Rep. Vince McAllister, the sanctity of opposite marriage defender who was busted on video in April as he made out with a female employee. The Dashers home school their four children. Of course! Louisiana's primary is November 4th.
