Skip to comments.Phil Robertson Breaks His Silence After Controversial Remarks
Posted on 12/22/2013 8:32:57 PM PST by NKP_Vet
Phil Robertson is not backing down. Despite the Duck Dynasty patriarch's controversial interview with GQ and subsequent suspension from the A&E smash series, the reality TV star shared during a Bible study group in West Monroe, Louisiana on Sunday, Dec. 22, "I will not give or back off from my path."
We are a bunch of rednecks from Louisiana, but I am not uneducated, I have a degree from Louisiana Tech. But this week I have been called an ignoramus, the Duck Dynasty star, 67, shared with the group, as reported by The Daily Mail.
This week I have been asked, 'Is this the first time you have brought up sin?" he recalled during the religious meeting. "I said, 'Are you kidding? I have been traveling to and fro spreading this message.' Then he said, 'Well do you invite yourself to go and get your Bible and tell people what you are now sharing with us?' I said, 'No they are inviting me.'"
Robertson added, "I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater." He then lead the group in prayer and shared, "I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions."

Robertson v. A&E would be a landmark anti-discrimination case for Christians and would stop a lot persecution of and provide timely protection in the workplace and in businesses for them.
Phil’s statement surprises no one that knows him.
Phil stands with Christ.
He will not be moved.May we be of like courage.
His rock is the Rock.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life.(John 3:16)
That is the gift of Christmas, the good news of the Gospel.
It is a gift open to all men, without exception.
What is controversial about his remarks? Shoving Mr Wangdoodle up some other guy’s poop-chute just ain’t natural; no two ways about it.
Yesterday’s normal is today’s controversial.
Every time I read an article that says he made homophobic comments I write off that “news source” as non-credible.
They’re exposing themselves left and right. I’m seeing that I’m not missing a thing for not having read or listened to any of them all these years.
I detest their Christophobic sentiments.
His remarks are only “controversial” to a very small segment of the population, and it is a segment that seeks to normalize deviant behavior.
President Cruz could make him the WH director of faith-based programs, to work closely with Vice President Palin and Attorney General Mike Lee.
Here’s what the Father of Our Country thought about sodomites in the Armed Forces.
At a General Court Martial whereof Colo. Tupper was President (10th March 1778) Lieutt. [Frederick Gotthold] Enslin of Colo. Malcom’s Regiment tried for attempting to commit sodomy, with John Monhort a soldier; Secondly, For Perjury in swearing to false Accounts, found guilty of the charges exhibited against him, being breaches of 5th. Article 18th. Section of the Articles of War and do sentence him to be dismiss’d the service with Infamy.
His Excellency the Commander in Chief [George Washington] approves the sentence and with Abhorrence and Detestation of such Infamous Crimes orders Lieutt. Enslin to be drummed out of Camp tomorrow morning by all the Drummers and Fifers in the Army never to return; The Drummers and Fifers to attend on the Grand Parade at Guard mounting for that Purpose.

yes..and so should we all be! www.patriotoutreach.org!
AE can suspend or terminate him for whatever reason they feel necessary.
But note, they did not fire him. That way they either pay him or release him. They cannot prevent him from making a living.
THAT is what any suit will be about. This is not a constitutional issue, but a civil right to work issue.
The first amendment is not the issue here, as AE is not the government. Your employer can put tons of conditions on your employment.
Shhh...you'll make me cry with the wishing.
Well ... perhaps Phil Robertson was reading this section of Romans 1, in the Bible ...
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
THAT would certainly be controversial to LGBT-types ... :-) ...
I’m sure they are “foaming at the mouth” at this part ...

Was THAT what Phil was referring to?
It’s only “wishing” because we haven’t done it yet. Senator Cruz would probably be the smartest president since Thomas Jefferson, if not more so, and “Vice President” Palin the most charismatic since the McKinley administration or before.
Some, yes; though some conditions would be prohibited by the State they reside in by a plain reading of that State's Constitution.
Take TN for example:
Art I, Section 3.As you can see, stipulating that one cannot exercise their conscience as condition for employment would render the contract unenforceable in TN were a plain reading of the State's constitution used.
That all men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own conscience; that no man can of right be compelled to attend, erect, or support any place of worship, or to maintain any minister against his consent; that no human authority can, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience; and that no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishment or mode of worship.
A&E needs Phil Robertson.
Amen! Thanks for posting.
Thank you, I had the same thought.
The comments were made to be controversial by the professionally offended and thin skinned homos always looking to expand the definitions of the words they use in the politically correct war against conservatives and conservatism.
They misjudged badly when they attempted to “make an example” of Mr. Robertson.
Well said Jeff...
and a hearty amen!
I listened to your two cents, and I would have to say that it is worth much more than that.
Thanks for recording it and posting the link!
May the LORD bless you (and the Robertson family too!)
Even the “Naturists” would agree. It is completely unnatural and unhealthy to boot. But we can say that because that would offend some people.
Phil Robertson does not need A&E.
A&E needs Phil Robertson.
That’s for damn sure. The best thing that could happen would be if, by their actions, A&E violated some clause in their contract with the Robinsons that would make that contract null and void and free the Robinsons to go elsewhere.
Of course perhaps A&E could try to populate their show “Duck Dynasty” with actors pretending to be the Robinsons. For example, they might hire “The Pajama Boy” (of Obamacare promotion “fame”) to play Will Robinson. I’m sure they could get about 100,000 viewers for their new show instead of the 14 million they have now watching the real Robinsons.
I believe this event has increased viewership for the show. I had only seen it once or twice before this. I’ve watched several episodes since. Multiply that by millions and A&E’s actions have increased the number of Americans exposed to these “racist, homophobic rednecks”. That’s an epic fail, in my opinion.
We need to use that word “Christophobia” more.
“Shoving Mr Wangdoodle up some other guys poop-chute just aint natural; no two ways about it.”
It may very well be “natural” in the sense they may be born with that proclivity, but that alone doesn’t necessarily make it any more acceptable than someone born with a proclivity for scatology, pedophile, anger, kleptomania, sadism, arson, etc, etc.
In other words, being born with some antisocial or socially disruptive trait doesn’t merit having pride parades over them and forcing everyone else not only to tolerate it but to sing praise to it.
Federal anti-discrimination laws protect employees and contractors in the workplace throughout the United States, its possessions and territories.
Robertson cannot be discriminated against based on his religion.
By suspending Robertson for expressing his religious views in a way that did not disrupt the workplace, because he expressed them outside the workplace, A&E has discriminated against him based solely on his religion.
Excellent! Quite a contrast - the beginning and end of the United States of America.
An honest study would likely find most homosexuals were abused as children rather than being born that way. The genetic explanation is to promote the agenda.
Pray America is Waking
In what way???
Only in liberal America would sharing an opinion with God be considered “controversial”.
May that word lure the sinners to the truth of His Word!
It was only after the Federal Government stepped in and started forcing them to co-exist in ways that they didn't care to that racial animosity really erupted.
“Phil Robertson’s “racially charged” remarks about pre-Civil Rights Act race relations in the South are mostly accurate. Working class blacks and whites in the rural South occupied more or less the same niche in society, so while there may have been some racial tensions between them and occasional freak incidents (on both sides), they mostly managed to peacefully co-exist”.
When Phil Robertson wrote of growing up in the South and working right beside black friends he was describing my life and most all other poor folks in the South, both white and black. I went to segregated schools, but had many black friends that lived in the boondocks around me. We played ball together and did what we could for each other. I was born in a shotgun house with no running water, and an outhouse located 50 feet outside the back door.My sisters hated to use it and had a little pot they kept under their bed. No TV till I was 12 years old. We didn’t own a car. We were as poor as church mice but believed in the Lord and never went hungry. Poor people are poor people and it makes no difference what color you might be.
“An honest study WOULD LIKELY find most homosexuals were abused as children rather than being born that way”
You really expect to win an argument with that type of “evidence”?
Whose trying to win any arguments. It is just as valid of “evidence” as most pro-homosexual studies. You know, the ones that claimed AIDS was going to be a heterosexual plague.
Pray America is Waking
Meanwhile, working and middle class southern whites who were blamed as the very embodiment of racial bigotry had worked and socialized with blacks for generations. Phil Robertson probably had more black friends growing up than any Kennedy brat ever had or will.
