Phil Robertson

Yeah, I Meant What I Said About Gays

Phil Robertson
is stronger than ever that homosexuality is an evil that deserves disdain and eternal damnation.

The "Duck Dynasty" star gave a fire-and-brimstone sermon on Easter Sunday ... way stronger than his comments to GQ last December that triggered a brief suspension from the show.

Robertson told his congregation last month, "Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators, nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

Robertson also scoffed at the media for criticizing them ... scoffing that reporters were ignorant when it comes to the bible.

No, the Bible's view of homosexuality is not politically correct. The politically correct view is that there is nothing wrong with two people just loving each other. Who are we Christians to judge them? But, who are they to say what is morally right and wrong? Do they have an objective standard of morals that all people should follow? No, they don't. They appeal to things like "society" and "common sense" and "basic rights," etc., to promote their opinion of homosexual normality. Well, societies have been wrong before (Nazi Germany, anyone?). What is common sense to one person isn't necessarily common sense to another. And, basic rights? Well, we all have basic rights. But, the homosexuals want special rights. They want laws passed to protect their sexual behavior. They also want to redefine marriage and require everyone else to accept it! (Will the redefinition stop with homosexual marriage? Don't bet on it. Pedophiles are now asking for rights, too, and they are using the same arguments initially presented by the homosexual movement decades ago). Think about it. The pro-homosexuals want laws passed to protect a behavior, a behavior! It is, after all, homoSEXuality. I want to know what right do the politically correct, pro-homosexual minority have to impose their values on the majority? What right do they have to condemn Christians, call us names, and be so very intolerant when say their behavior is a sin? They don't have sound arguments, but they do have liberal dogmatism pushed along by the momentum of the compromising media. They are successfully getting homosexuality promoted in schools, TV, and movies as "normal" and healthy. As a result, their confidence and successes have pumped up their bravado so much that they even oppress those who oppose homosexuality--a fact blatently ignored by the double-standard-liberal-media. But what are we to expect when dogmatism is king and all opposing views are condemned? The pro-homosexuals want everyone to think like them and approve of their "inborn sexual orientation"--and if you don't? Well, then you're labeled a bigot! Yep, they are so tolerant. That is why they want laws passed to ensure that their behavior of pairing a penis to a penis and a vagina to a vagina is protected as a special legal right even if the majority of people think otherwise! But hey, it's okay if the minority pushes the majority around, redefines marriage, enforces loosening sexual morays, hides the condemning health statistics of homosexual behavior, and not-so-gently forces a change in society as a whole while they arrogantly yell, "This is normal!" . . . really? It is? But, believe it or not. We, Christians, aren't judging them. We are informing them. God has declared that homosexuality is a sin. It isn't our preferences we're declaring. It is God's. I know. I know. Some will say the Bible isn't true, that it is archaic, sexist, homophobic . . . blah, blah, blah. I've heard it all before. Kill the messanger and let's all jump into bed together and have our fun. Sorry, I'm not interested in freedom without responsibility and the resulting promiscuity and diseases that accompany the politically correct, sexual freedom of abberant liberal morality. Instead, I'll follow my Lord who calls all to repentance (Acts 17:30), myself included.

Eh. He's just trying to bring more attention to his white trash clan. He'll always have the support of red necks and Georgians. Idiots.

Really, TMZ? Well, I guess it makes sense. Donald Sterling hasn't said anything since his interview with Anderson Cooper. The game of ping pong continues.

This isn't news. He made several similar statements PRIOR to the GQ article in his sermons. They're all over YouTube. The difference was he didn't make them directly to the media during a paid interview while representing the show & A&E who pays him $200k an episode. That's where the controversy lied in the scandal leading to his suspension (and eventual reinstatement) by the network. The fact that he has these views alone surprised no one, and I highly doubt anyone assumed that he his point of view had changed.

It's ironic that so many people talk about his right to his opinion, which he has, but at the same time complain about us gays voicing OUR opinion that he's wrong?

•Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."1 •Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them." •1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." •Rom. 1:26-28, "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper." Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible. It undermines the basis of God's created order where God made Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman--not two men, not two women--to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Gen. 1:28). Homosexuality cannot carry out that command. It also undermines the basic family unit of husband and wife, the God-ordained means of procreation. It is also dangerous to society. I'll be praying for the lost.

History is full of nondenominational preachers who are eventually caught lying, cheating, stealing, and my personal favorite, sex scandals. They will always admit their sins, say all mankind is flawed, and ask for forgiveness. In my world, they are no different then the evil they pretend to hate.

I love these hacks that purposely go to a church for a "gotcha" moment. What Phil is talking about is biblical teachings on homosexuality and considering that all teachings against homosexuality are contained in the old Testiment then Harvey should be quite familiar with it being Jewish and having to learn this for his Bar Mitzvah. The old testament teaches against *********** which is a HETEROSEXUAL couple having sex outside of marriage but I don't seen all the unmarried couples that live together getting rabid about it and claiming hate speech. I guess society now just picks and chooses what they want to be "offended" about. And homosexuality seems to be the flavor of the month.

Personal beliefs and opinions are the right of every American. However when you use your celebrity to publically espouse them, you are not spreading God's word only bias and hatred. The Bible teaches tolerance and love. The only judge is God Himself.
