Phil Robertson has been quite vocal in the past months. The patriarch of the Robertson family is no longer held back by sponsorship and Duck Dynasty and he’s finally getting his chance to speak his mind.
Phil Robertson Warns Against Forgetting God
Phil Robertson recently appeared on Newsmax TV and told the news station exactly what he thinks of America’s current state. He said, “Our founding fathers, they warned us repeatedly, when you forget God, tyrants forge your chains…We’re there, my man.”
Phil believes America is in a dark place and needs Jesus more than ever. He’s also happy to finally be able to speak his mind. Apparently, he felt censored on Duck Dynasty and knew that advertising would be in jeopardy if he were to truly say it how it is. He said of his new show on Conservative Review Television, “I told the guys…I said if we do this, let’s have it to where there’s no filters between myself and the public I’m speaking to. None of these people who say okay we’ll only sponsor you if say this say that. That’s how they are manipulating the system. We’ll sponsor you as long as you say something that agrees with our ideology. You stray one centimeter over that, and you’re out.”
We’re All Doomed
So why does Robertson feel that Americans are doomed? He believes a lack of education about the Bible in our school systems and biblical morality in our judicial systems is to blame. He told the program, [Hippies] “migrated and they became your judges, they migrated into the institutions of higher learning and to your government and to your news media and to Hollywood,” he said. “They’re still espousing that God is dead, and they ran him out of the courthouses, the schools, and now we are paying the price…You forget God and the trouble starts.”
Phil also believes pop-culture and technology are no help in the matter. He said, “I don’t own a suit or a cell phone. And I’ve never turned on a computer in my 71 years on the earth. And someone said ‘How do you function without a cell phone and a computer?’ My answer is very peacefully.”
Do you agree with Phil Robertson? Are we forgetting Jesus as a nation?
