Nothing says good “Christian” values quite like listing a bunch of people you personally think will spend an eternity in burning in hell. Especially on Easter of all days, the day when people are supposed to be honoring the resurrection of Jesus Christ. You know, the individual who told people not to judge one another.
Well it seems the bearded bigot is at it again. This time he’s featured in a new video from a sermon he gave on Easter where he defended his previous comments comparing homosexuality to bestiality and homosexuals to terrorists. Only this time he also compared them to adulterers, thieves, prostitutes and swindlers.
“They were mad at me,” he said. “You say, ‘Why’d they get mad at you?’ ’Cause instead of acknowledging their sin, like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins. Don’t deceive yourselves.”
He continued, “The news media didn’t even know it was a verse! They thought I was just mouthing off. Is homosexual behavior a sin? The guy asked me. I said, do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
You know who’s also not getting into heaven, Phil? Judgmental pricks.
The Bible also warns against greed. And considering Phil Robertson is estimated to be worth around $15 million, I would say he’s hoarding a good deal of cash. Not that I’m attacking his success, not at all. But if he wants to play the game of, “What’s in the Bible?” well there are quite a few passages warning against greed. In fact, it’s one of the “Seven Deadly Sins.”
Someone might also want to inform him that tattoos are forbidden in the Bible, and his son Willie has at least two.
See, that’s the danger when people want to take the Bible as a word for word depiction of rules. Considering it’s impossible for anyone to follow every rule inside of the Bible, when someone decides to handpick certain parts of the Bible with which to judge others, while ignoring the rules they violate, that just makes them a hypocrite.
Phil Robertson once again displayed his absolute ignorance. And while he’s free to say whatever he likes, or believe however he wants to believe, as a face of a company and brand his words have consequences.
And I’m predicting that these most recent comments will help continue the trend of Duck Dynasty’s rapidly declining ratings as their new season approaches.
