Steve Green, a Robertson family friend, and owner of Hobby Lobby, just addressed the Roy Moore scandal. Phil Robertson, a public endorser of Moore, has yet to come forward with any response.
Steve Green Addresses Roy Moore Allegations
Phil Robertson publicly endorsed Roy Moore all Fall, as the “ten commandments” judge ran for a Senate seat in Alabama. Phil said of Moore, “He judged with a good understanding of the Constitution and the law, but he also understands natural law and who gave us our rights to begin with, Almighty God.” Moore is now set to run in the special election on December 12th, but his campaign has hit a major bump in the road.
Moore has been accused by six women of sexual assault and misconduct. One woman even alleged Moore initiated sexual contact with her when she was only 14 years old. Many Duck Dynasty fans have wondered why Phil Robertson hasn’t addressed the claims. Robertson felt the need to speak out against Harvey Weinstein when similar accusations emerged but hasn’t said a word about his endorsed candidate.
However, what Phil won’t address, Steve Green has. Green is well-known for his Christian views and evangelism. This week, when asked if Roy Moore should step down, Green replied, “If it’s true, yes. If It’s not, no…I don’t know if it is. But those obviously are actions that would be inappropriate. If they are true it would be best for him to step aside.”
The Bible Museum
The Robertsons and Greens are more connected than ever, as Missy Robertson and others support and promote Green’s new Bible Museum. The 430,000 square foot exhibit opened last week. Missy Robertson wrote, “We spent yesterday at @BibleMuseum in Washington DC with the sweet Green Family of Hobby Lobby. Their dream is now a reality. Thank you, Greens, for your heart and effort to to share this with all of God’s people. Opens Saturday! Go see it! Amazing!!”
Willie Robertson also reported he is friends with Green, and is excited about the project. He said, “I remember him talking about it a couple of years ago, so it’s great to see it come to life.”
Only time will tell if Phil Robertson follows Steve Green’s example and addresses the Roy Moore scandal.
