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.

honestly, people who call the bible 'bullcrap' are really, very matter of factly, stupid, ignorant and totally uneducated. these text and events were recorded somewhere between 2000 and 3000 years ago where lots of social turmoil was erupting and emerging. lots of different tribes and nations collided, which caused an array of conflicts and problems. i don't care if people don't believe in all the spiritual content of the bible, and call that 'fairy tales and hocus pocus', but most of the events, even in faint detail, are recorded events of actual merging of cultures, of clashing of values and of mass delusion and mass confusion, paired with viciously and rapidly spreading diseases and mass death. the rulers of those times tried to find ways to contain the most vicious offshoots of these mergings, and of those, they found that 1.males copulating with males: led to very vicious and very deadly diseases, 2.males copulating with animals caused very vicious and very deadly diseases, all these passed on to women and passed on to children, killing them, but while having to live in painful agony first, "leprosy" with painful body parts falling off, rotting away on them. there were also lots of food borne and water borne diseases. this is why the 'preachers' or ruler then declared that 'because of that malicious and selfish, mentally ill behavior, or ignoring the fact that women and children will be affected by this 'sexual abnormal behavior', that even if they did not engage in this behavior, they would be severely affected by it, probably even more so than those ones who did. so this is why such things as homosexuality and promiscuity are 'punished' or demonized by religious texts. because they severely affected others who were not engaging in them, and even spread onto others who did not practice them, so for 'spiritual leaders' this was a 'clear sign from god' or 'from the gods' (nature, what have you) that 'this behavior will lead you to experience a very horrible afterlife' (satan, devil, evil, or what have you). but yeah, all these dumbos who think the bible is bullcrap and needs to be exterminated are plain and simple, dumb. you cannot take them seriously, because it is a fact, that by following the rules of these scriptures and texts, 'human kind was cured and was 'healed' for some time from all these very apparent diseases that existed at that time, for a thousands years or so. this is irrefutable fact. i mean today people are totally cool with aids and with other std's because 'we have a great medical knowledge'. well they did not then. it may disappear some day, you never know. it might become unaffordable to many. so these texts and scriptures are sort of 'permanent' for humankind. take it or leave it. scare tactics or not. like then, people imagined they had 'a right to practice these forms of sexuality' because they 'felt good' or 'felt natural' etc, same as today, because we have contraceptives and condoms, medicine that can contain the worst side effects of them. but i can imagine if you had to live your life with a painfully rotting limb, one after the other falling off of you for engaging in sex with animals or anal penetration, you would probably reconsider. you would probably not be all supportive of homosexuality if you knew that this behavior could and would effect you, you would grow sick and die 'by it' from others, even if you yourself did not practice it. i can guarantee most supporters would be the first to throw the gays in a fire pit.

Oh lawd. Here we go again. Please let this man & his personal beliefs be. At the end of the day you'll still be gay & he'll still feel & say what he wants. TMZ really hates for anyone to say anything opposing about gay people. They will wear them down until they issue an apology or die a horrible death. #Gaygency is real.
