Phil Robertson On Modern Sins
For 11 years, Duck Dynasty has been delighting audiences, while also angering non-supporters. On camera, the show focused on duck calls, hunting, and long beards. Off camera, however, there was often controversy.
In 2013, GQ published an interview where Phil Robertson made anti-gay comments by calling homosexuality a sin. This sparked a great deal of outrage and A&E even temporarily removed him from his own show.
Later, he said, “I’m as much of a homophobe as Jesus was,” defending his comments with the Holy Bible.

Then, in March 2015, Phil Robertson stirred up some more controversy when he condemned atheists. He gave a speech to the Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast where he condemned atheists with a hypothetical story.
The story involved an atheist being forced to watch his daughters and wife being raped and then killed. This outraged more non-fans, but those who follow Phil understand his “no-atheists-in-foxholes- scenario.
Then, the reality star moved on to discuss his thoughts on ISIS.
Phil Robertson On ISIS / Terrorists
Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Phil Robertson his thoughts on the terrorist group, ISIS. The 2015 interview was set up to promote the book, unPHILtered: The Way I See It, so it seemed like a safe time to tell his real thoughts.
“In this case, you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible. I’m not giving up on them, but I’m just saying either convert them or kill them,” said Phil.
“I’d much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and point them to Jesus Christ. However, if it’s a gunfight and a gunfight alone, if that’s what they’re looking form, me personally, I am prepared for either one…”
What do you really think about Phil’s “controversial” comments?
