Phil Robertson has said some things in the past that not everyone agrees with. Because of this, he’s been met with opposition and protests over the years.

Phil once had the opportunity to pray before the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. It was an honest, simple prayer.

“I pray Father that we put a Jesus-Man in the White House,” he said. “Help us do that and help us all to repent, to do what is right, to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.”

And the media jumped on him. Here are a few examples…

The rainbow-colored crowds.


Phil was scheduled to speak at an event in Montana, but a group of folks with rainbow flags and handwritten signs was there to meet him. And they were not there to get his autograph.

They were protesting his “deeply homophobic comments,” as stated by Emily Withnall, the leader of the protest. This was about Phil’s comments in GQ from 2013.

What the crowd did not know was that Phil was trying to help raise funds for the Adult and Teen Challenge, an organization that helps women with substance-abuse issues.

After Phil’s comments in GQ had gone public, the Rev. Jesse Jackson held a press conference to express his disappointment in and disagreement with Phil.

“At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law,” Jackson said. “Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.’”

However, Phil had clarified his original statements in GQ.

“I don’t worry too much about people hating or insulting me,” he told Us Weekly. “I’m a sinful man, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes. People have reason to hate me.”

A&E and the GQ incident

Speaking of GQ, this is the biggest controversy Phil has faced. In 2013, A&E suspended Phil for stating publicly his beliefs about homosexuality, which he believes line up with the Bible.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,” Phil told GQ magazine. “Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.” 

Fortunately, they reinstated Phil, and he’s been going strong ever since.
