|Duck Dynasty Patriarch Phil Robertson|
Wow! This is epic for all the wrong reasons!
Via Talking Points Memo:
The patriarch of "Duck Dynasty," America's biggest cable television show, shared his views on "sin," homosexuality, and world religions in an epic interview that appears in the January issue of GQ.
Phil Robertson, the elder statesman of the show's family of self-described "Bible-thumpers," told the magazine that in America today "everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong."
“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," Robertson said before paraphrasing a Bible verse. "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.”He then tries to claim that he doesn't judge anyone.
Though he clearly has strong criticism for "homosexuals" and others he feels have sinned, Robertson said he doesn't judge them.
“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job," Robertson said. "We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?"Uh, dude...you just did!! I think he forgets that people outside of backwoods Louisiana can actually read.
