New Video: Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Compares Homosexuals to Thieves and Adulterers, Defends Previous Anti-Gay Comments

phil-robertson-easterNothing 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.

Ironic, considering that Duck Commander (the company founded by Phil Robertson and run by his son Willie Robertson) charges upwards of $250 for a duck call – one might actually call them 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.

    Perhaps he should attempt fitting a camel through the eye of a needle.

    How about “the meek shall inherit the earth”. The word that always comes to my mind with these types of faux Christians it hypocrite!! I’m so sick of these people I could puke.

    • That’s really to bad, that’s the only scripture you know from the bible, you should consider reading it especially the new testament. Christians are not only to separate themselves from evil but to expose it for what it is.

    Side point, in the Baptist church of my upbringing, someone going to church, much less the lectern, dressed in such a manner would have brought heaping condemnation on the lack of respect of God and the Church.

    It isn’t like he couldn’t afford to get a button down shirt and tie.

    RE: comparing homosexuality to adulterers, etc.

    I’ve always noted the main New Testament verse used against homosexuality from near the end of Revelations (where it lists people who will not be allowed) included homosexuals (or effeminate, depending on translation) but also liars, adulterers, etc.

    So how long will the church doors stay open if we start stoning the adulterers ? Or censoring adultery (much stronger than some mealy mouthed sermon about marriage) including measures used against homosexuals such as excommunication ?

    Won’t Phil be surprised when he gets to those Gates and learns that he’s going to keep getting sent back to Earth until he learns to love without judgment, and to quit whittling the Creator down to our size….

    Does phil think he is a profit like MIKE MURDOCK?..YES>>Phil IN NO WAY can change the way society is and has changed.It is a person choice.The fact that he is chasing flies with his bible is rediculous.They have tried to squeese marketing the duck calls to preaching gods word.Unfortunatly its A&Es fault.Time to shut them down SO WE CAN GO ON WITH OUR LIVES.I would imagine the only way to show these money grubbing Evangelists that they dont have a say.Its ONLY there opninion.THATS ALL IT IS.To me It laughable that he evan has an audiance by now.I am for stopping them.SHUTTING THEM UP.PUTTING an end to the RUN AWAY TRAIN.Please tweet me at JESUS [email protected] I LOVE MONEY to post your remark.I am surprised they havent made camo VIBRATORS for sale.They have pushed it to the limit.I am not a violent person.I am afraid that some one will get hurt when this bible is released.Then they will have blood on there hands.WE dont need to go down that route but it needs to be addressed before his money grubbing version comes out.These people truly dont have a clue other then to count dollars.So again please tweet me your opinion and if you read this and can post this some where so others can voice there opinion maybe we can put an end to this self made profit$$$$ of god.Why does he need so much money?.A&E ITS YOUR FAULT ..when the law suits come in your name will be on it too..I dont have the funds to put on a protest near the duck company and any treaspassers I am sure will be arrested. I am sure of that.The only way out is to buy a piece of property next to theres and put a big sign on our trucks,billboards.ANUS OR VAGINA TONIGHT HONEY?I AWAIT YOUR POSTS AND SUPPORT.and for gods sake STOP GIVING THEM YOUR MONEY.They will take it and you will feel no better the next day.Its a scam OPEN YOUR EYES THEY WANT YOUR MONEY.Friend me on face book
