What did Phil Robertson really say?

I was reading about the comments made by Duck Dynasty star Phil on Homosexuality and African Americans and I am shocked how his comments are taken out of context. To be honest, I have only seen 5 mins of the show my entire life. I don’t like people with beards. Does that mean I hate them? No. I just don’t like long unshaved beard. No offense to anyone. Is the beard dirty? I don’t think so. I just don’t like long beard. Thats all. So, I don’t see this show. lol.

I am surprised, America has come to this. The media in America is controlled by huge corporations run by a few individuals who are centered in the leftist camp. I read people write “He listens to Faux News” Faux News, Faux News all the time.

Actually, we have to stop and ponder if people who tell Fox News is Faux News have any credibility themselves. I haven’t come across as many faux news in Fox News as in CNN or msnbc or other many media organizations. They are all run by corporations that want to push their own perverted agenda.

Let us look at what Phil said

“In a wide-ranging interview with GQ, Robertson didn’t hold back when sharing his thoughts about homosexuality and sinning.

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine,” he said. “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

Paraphrasing Corinthians he added: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Have we become such douche bags? To be offended by even a small innocent comment.

The media keeps repeating this again and again trying to make this old man look like a monster. Do you think this is a coincidence that the media keeps on attacking him? No.

Anyone true and honest unaffiliated with either of the parties with clear knowledge of the English language can see for themselves, how the media is twisting his comments.

Now, lets see what Phil had to say about African Americans

Taken from Gospel Coaltion (http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/tgc/2013/12/20/race-reconciliation-and-phil-robertson)

[

I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues. - Phil

I've watched every season of Duck Dynasty. I'm a fan of the entire family, and especially of their patriarch, Phil Robertson. Robertson is funny, intelligent, and oddly charming. But one thing he is not is articulate. Although he's a man of relatively few words, Robertson has a tendency to ramble, as if he needs to keep talking while he's searching for the right words to make his point. From watching his TV series and listening to his sermons it becomes apparent that his ending sentence is usually the key to understanding what he's trying to say. Indeed, I believe that in those rambling discourses you can often start with his last sentence and read forward and his thought makes more sense. His quote on growing up in a pre-civil-rights-era Louisiana is a prime example:

No one was singing the blues. They were happy; they were godly.

Although the journalist doing the interview was interested in framing the question in the context of segregation-era Southern politics, Robertson appears to have been trying to steer it back to one of his primary themes: Happiness is a result of godliness.

The context makes it clear that Robertson is not addressing the situation of all African Americans in the pre-civil-rights South. He is relating his own experience, what he saw ("with my eyes"), in the narrow context of impoverished agricultural laborers. And what he claims to have seen is people who were happy because they were godly.]

So you see, even though it was a naive comment, its horribly naive to say Phil is a racist.

So the question we should ask is “Why is the media targeting the Duck Dynasty?”

It is like a sniper shot, targeted and precise. Snipers take out valuable target. The simple answer is, the Elitist in power is scared of the Duck Dynasty and the conservatives that follow them. Phil Roberston is much admired by the right and there is quite a following. The people in power just tried to destroy the bud before it grew into a flower. I hope you understand the analogy.

What did Phil say after this issue on Wednesday?

Earlier Wednesday, Roberston had responded to critics who had slammed him for very graphic statements he made about his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex.

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said in a statement sent to FOX411.

“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.

“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity

- Phil Robertson

Seriously flocks, it is time to learn how the media manipulates the people.

    Thank you for this!! I as a christian and a HUGE fan of Duck Dynasty have been searching trying to find exactly what he said. As you mentioned in your article, it is impossible to find what he did say becuase it is edited, taken out of context and really only he and the interviewer know. I am disappointed that as an educated person I am not even able to find what he said to form my own opinion but only have subjective perceptions of either Pro Phill or Phill haters. Makes it tough to form an opinion on my own, not what everyone else feels. I love duck dynasty, Jesus and I love all sinners, just not the sin, just as Jesus did. Amen!

    I’m black and I just think you have to take these things as they come. When Chic Fil-A came out against gay marriage I stopped eating there, because I think they know better, which really hurt because they have the best chicken sandwiches ever. But when when Julianna Hugh wore black face to a Halloween party, I didn’t care and wasn’t offended because I didn’t think she was trying to make any kind of statement and at the end of the day she’s not relevant to anyone except her family and Ryan Seacrest. Same for this, I love Duck Dynasty (DD), but frankly when it comes to those self proclaimed “red necks” I’ve been expecting them to do or say something like this since I started watching, and honestly I’m not offended, not for my gay friends and not as a black person. Phil is basically a country bumpkin that got lucky, he’s college educated but that doesn’t stop anyone from saying and doing dumb things. I think his comments are narrow minded and off color, but I can let it go. Phil, from what I see on the show has no “agenda” is a good hearted guy, and at the end of the day, it’s just posturing on A&E’s part. DD gets 12,000,000 viewers a week A&E isn’t dropping anybody!

    I have never watched (DD), and do not intend to start watching it now. However. if Phil professes to be a christian, he has the responsibility to God first. So no matter what he does, or what he says, if it is not done in a loving way, then it is not of God. As achild of God, we are to be lead by the Holy Spirit, so I do not believe He is going to lead His children to say or do anything that is not done in love. Just because we live in a free society, and just because we say we are a christian, does not mean we are to say any thing we feel like saying, that is not acting responsibly.Too many people are so quick to say, “you are not supposed to judge”. Telling you what the Word of God says, is not judging you, it is simply telling you something you don’t want to hear, because you want to try and justify doing ,what you already know is wrong. Jesus said, “I did not come to condemn the world”, because if He did, we ALL would be in hell tonight. He said.”I came to give you Life…” So if you are gay, straight, or in between, it does not matter in the sense that, my life style will or will not send me to hell. Sin is sin, and we ALL have sinned. You can go to church 7 days a week or never go at all. You can pay your tithe 52 weeks of the year or pay nothing at all. All your “good” doings, or all your “wrong” doings is not going to get you into heaven, or send you to hell. Yes God loves each one of us. But make no mistake about it, just because He loves us, does not mean that it is o-kay for us to ignor ANY part of His Word. He said,”I will not be mocked”. So for Phil, or any one else calling themselves a child of God, if we are not doing things on our jobs, in our homes or wherever we may be, in a way that honors God, then don’t put your behavior under the guise of “christianity”.This is an insult to Him. God said,”Life and Death, you choose”. So if you are not” born again”, you ARE a sinner, and you WILL go to hell.This is what God said! You don’t have to believe it or accept it, that does not change a thing .God’s word STANDS. For all you christians, that say “we are all sinners, even though we are born again”, then if you died tomorrow, where would your soul go? Since sin cannot enter into heaven, is there a place for people that are half christian and half sinner? I dont know what Bible you are reading, but my Bible says,” as a child of God, I am no longer a sinner, but the righteousness of God”. Let us be a blessing to others, and in all we do or say, do so in love, after all we are representives of the ONE who is LOVE. Amen.

    8-11 million people watch Duck Dynasty in a country with nearly 1/3rd of a billion people. I doubt there’s a conspiracy to disrupt the Duck Dynasty “power” base. There are conservatives out there with a LOT more money, a LOT more power and a LOT more followers than these guys.

    So why did the media go off on him? Because they are capitalists and must please advertisers who sell things to gay people. Capitalism is all about money — not morality. Capitalists don’t single people out as sinners. They cater to that sin and try to sell them things. You can make a lot of money off gays in this country, and many capitalists, on both the right and the left do exactly that. So the last thing they want is for a media personality, like Phil, to stir up that demographic (i.e. the people they make their money off of).

    Follow the money.

    I am an African American and a huge fan of DD as well as other hunting shows featuring the Robertson’s. Read the article, didnt sound like anything my mother the same age as Phil Robertson has not said, its their age their time, their beliefs. Not one African American has found any reason that this was nothing but one mans views and that it makes this man a racist. If you really watched the show you can see the even in the family, the adopted son of Willie R is part African American or another race other than white.

    Phil Robertson is a good guy and he should NOT be judged because he is just living by the Bible. If you people can’t handle being “offended” then y’all just don’t need to watch the dang channel! It is just that simple. So if I offend anybody I am sorry but being gay ain’t right to me. I just believe in the Bible and God.
