In a recent speech at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit, Phil Robertson make yet again a controversial statement regarding politics and Chrisitianity. The Duck Dynasty patriarch wants to know if the Democratic party loves Jesus- and he’ll wait for the answer.
Phil Robertson Makes A Statement
At the Values Voter Summit, put on each year by the Family Research Council, Phil Robertson made quite a few polarizing comments.
Firstly, he asked democrats if they love Jesus. He said, “I’m almost tempted to ask the Democratic party four little words: Do y’all love Jesus? The reason I’m asking you, Democratic Party, is I’ve never heard you say one way or the other. Do you love Him? And I’m waiting on an answer.” Most recently Phil endorsed a Republican Senator, Roy Moore. Moore has a very conservative reputation.
When addressing the Las Vegas shooting, Phil had this to say, “The whole world is under the control of the evil one…Satan has taken them captive to do his will. Evil doesn’t need a motive. All it needs is Satan, working in people, prompting people.”
Many fans found Phil’s words to ring true. However, others found them to be unrelated to the political summit, and off base.
Phil’s New Show
For a long time, Phil has worried that the media will silence his opinions, and drown out his controversial remarks. However, Phil Robertson recently signed on to return to television. His new show Phil In the Woods will give him the perfect platform for his many controversial opinions.
In the promotional video, he states, “What does a man do when they try to run him out of town for quoting a Bible verse? I tell you what he does; he goes deep in the woods. For far too long we have been told to shut up. No more. Here’s the deal, America. These are my woods. Out here, I call the shots. Out here, we reject political correctness, or as I like to say, ‘pontificated crap.'”
Phil Robertson certainly isn’t backing down. Do you like what he has to say?
