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.
