The most popular speaker at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference was not a politician, but rather Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson.
Robertson received a thunderous applause that brought the audience to their feet Friday as he accepted the Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award.
And in his remarks, that ran 20 minutes long, the polarizing reality star focused on one thing in particular - sexually transmitted diseases in America.
'It is the revenge of the hippies! Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll have come back to haunt us in a bad way,' he stated.
He then went on to tell that audience that it only takes '30 seconds' to get genital herpes.
Then, he said that the only way to end this was for a man to marry a woman or a woman to marry a man, and to stay faithful.
'You want a godly, biblical, medically safe option? One man, one woman, married for life,' he said.
Robertson closed out his speech by saying; 'And if you hate me because I told you that, I told you my love for you is not contingent on how you feel about me. I love you anyway. I don't want to see you die early or get sick. I'm trying to help you, for crying out loud. America, if I didn't care about you, why would I bring this up?
The writer of this piece for the Daily Mail, Chris Spargo, hatefully infused his own venom into the article, pointing out that Robertson has admitted to his own infidelity. Yes, Robertson did admit his sin, before he was saved back in the 1960's and 1970's! Robertson's admission does not make him a hypocrite. He was a child of sin, like we all are, but Christ and the Holy Spirit made him a new person.
"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"
2 Corinthians 5:17
Readers also mocked his Bible with duct tape on it. That means he reads it people.
By the way, the 110 million STD figure comes from our own CDC findings this week.
You gotta love Phil Robertson. Political correctness is one of his strong suits.
"Let me get this straight, if a guy has been an alcoholic he can't challenge others to give up drinking unless he does a mea culpa every time he speaks? Even though he may have not touched a drop in 20 or 30 years? That's holding the speaker to an impossibly high standard--like um, perfection. Just because he didn't bring up his past doesn't mean he can't speak to the issue. Is he currently unfaithful? If he is that would be hypocrisy. While I don't follow Duck Dynasty and generally don't make comments about them it just seems to me that if a person confronts popular culture he or she is held to a different standard. From what I know of Phil and clan, he believes sincerely in grace and forgiveness and would probably hold out forgiveness to anyone regardless of the behavior. Disagree with the man if you will, disagree with his controversial statements. But don't hold him to a different standard than the standard you hold of a friend who agrees with you."
Humanity has not changed since the ancient days. The sinful spend a great portion of their time and energy engaging in lust, violence, greed, and all the rest, and the rest of their energy attacking anyone who points out the Truth about their own sinful condition. Without the mercy of God, we are all lost.
Well said. In fact, when it comes to alcohol and drug use, there is nobody more qualified to condemn it and issue warnings than the reformed addict.
If someone who had never consumed alcohol went around lecturing about the perils of it, the same bunch would disqualify him to speak because of his lack of exposure and experience.
RULE 4: Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entitys very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
~ Sajul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals
The rate of chlamydia among blacks was almost seven times the rate among whites (1,229.4 and 179.6 cases per 100,000 population, respectively).
...gonorrhea rates remained highest among blacks (462.0 cases per 100,000 population) (Table 22B). The rate among blacks was 14.9 times the rate among whites (31.0 per 100,000 population).
Why are the VD rates so much higher for blacks? I doubt the American people believe those statistics.
Ergo, if a hypocrite tells you that stealing is wrong, and it turns out he stole in the past, it must follow that stealing is right.
Phil Robertson BTTT!
You would not want to know the sins I committed, before our Lord showed me a way out of my former liberal believing life. Thank You, Lord.
As you said, thank you Lord!
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah! He has blessed us in the Messiah with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm"
There’s no way I can possibly believe that number. Think about it. There are about 300 million Americans.
20% of that number are under the age of 15.
That would mean that 45% of adults have an STD.
I looked up that 20% of adults see they have had only one partner.
That number is totally BS.
I watched the speech. He actually focused on The Bible and how important religion was in the framing of our Constitution. The STD thing was a blip during the speech, IMO
They mocked The Handyman’s Secret Weapon? That’s heresey right there!
In the liberal mind a hypocrite is somebody who has made mistakes, learned from them and wishes to share their hard-earned wisdom with others in order that those others might be spared the same pain and suffering.
They are too terrible to discuss:
In 2011, the diagnosis rate for HIV cases in the United States was 15.8 per 100,000 population and 60.4 among Blacks. Of 197,090 diagnoses of HIV-infection from 2008-2011, Blacks/African Americans accounted for:
In 2010, the death rate for blacks was higher (25.0 per 100,000) compared with any other racial ethnicity group (3.0 whites). Blacks represented 49% of all deaths with HIV in 2010. A recent study showed that blacks diagnosed with HIV are less likely than other groups to be linked to care, retained in care, receive antiretroviral treatment and achieve adequate viral suppression. African American Males African American men accounted for 42% of HIV cases diagnosed among men in 2011. A majority (72%) of African American men with HIV contracted the disease by male to male contact while 19% contracted HIV through heterosexual exposure. African American Females Among African American women, high risk heterosexual contact was the most frequently cited mode of transmission, accounting for 89% of cases diagnosed in 2011.
This article below is by a Christian black minister who loves God:
Since 1973, 15 million Black babies were killed. So, in 41 years (1973-2014), Blacks have managed to kill more babies than those that were killed during the Middle Passage in 400 years. Sexual immorality plagues every race but when it comes to abortion, the numbers reveal that just because we are spiritual, without a real encounter with God, we have neither seen Him nor known Him (see 1 John 3:6). Because if we were really born again, and if we really claim to worship Him because we say that we know Him, we would never sin against Him. The time for excuses ceases when we realize that sexual immorality is a sin against God and His Word. For years, we have been making inept and lame excuses.
Loved the duct tape, my husband’s bible is held together the same way.
These days I use my iPhone or iPad more and more. I like being able to use different translations easily, the audio Bible App is just AMAZING as you can listen to it as you drive, the ability to cross reference is wonderful, and you can even highlight passages and send to friends.
I'm pretty sure the writer meant to say "duck" calls.
That statistic is hard to believe. There are about 150 million individual taxpayers in the USA. If the 110 million Americans with STD is true, that means just about every working American has an STD.
I think the definition of STD is suspect here or is too broad to get worked up about. Mono and cold sores should not count. Herpes is often misdiagnosed for cold sores.
I think Robertson should have focused on free speech issues and homosexual marriage. STD issues based on suspect overbroad statistical gathering is hardly worth a report.
