'Duck Dynasty' Stars

State of the Union?

You're Lookin' At It

1/29/2014 3:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129_willie_korie_robertson_state_of_the_union_launchIt was ironic ... one of the couples invited to the coveted State of the Union address last night at the U.S. Capitol was Willie and Korie Robertson -- to bring DIVERSITY to the event!

The "Duck Dynasty" stars were invited by Congressman Vance McAllister -- he's a Republican from Louisiana who won a close race last year, and the Robertsons helped with their endorsement.

Now here's the best part ... McAllister said he invited them to bring "some diversity to our nation's capitol."
 
Diversity is a tricky subject for the Robertson family ... who apparently thinks gays will burn in hell and homosexuality is a gateway to bestiality. 

We're guessing they didn't ask Jason Collins​ for an autograph ... or vice versa.

Do not preach tolerance of all people, races, sexuality TMZ, while excluding those who disagree with you. It's hypocrisy in its highest form. It has become blatantly obvious you fan the flames of war against anyone who doesn't buy into what is "cool" and "trending" at the moment.

It's ok. The whole visual is continuing to do a number on the Republican party... and NOT the number they hope. It's truly astonishing how they repeatedly fail to get a clue!

Yes, and it drove the radical liberals crazy. I love it. They think diversity and tolerance are one way streets.

BTW TMZ, this is Willie, not Phil. Phil is the the one that made the comments (which I disagree with).

Why is duck dynasty still relevant if they have all been exposed to be fake.

Have you ever noticed what losers republicans are? Makes me laugh when liberal democrats brag about kicking the butt of a bunch of inbred rednecks. Oh wait forgot about Obama 's feeling about special Olympic participants. Liberal Dems. Winners in a room full of losers.

Dems got their pictures taken with wounded warrior next to Michelle O. Republicans fell all over each other getting pics with Duck Dynasty guy.

TMZ you sound as hateful as the people you critize. Neither Robertson said gays should apparently will burn in hell and homosexuality is a gateway to bestiality. What he quoted was a bible verse which states 1 Corinthians 5:11 "11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[a] but is homesexual,sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people." Why do twist words? He didn't come close to saying what stated he said or feels.Now I don't believe anything you are writing
