I’m no fan of Duck Dynasty as I find their lifestyle and accents to be very unappealing. But reading the news concerning their family head Phil Robertson has me rolling my eyes yet again at what this nation is coming to. This isn’t even about free speech and the ability to express opinions. This goes much deeper as it wasn’t so much his having an opinion that was called into question but that it wasn’t the right opinion or more “progressive” opinion. Phil basically called out homosexuality as a sin and said he didn’t understand why men or women would respond sexually to someone the same gender as them. Hardly the “vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication” as stated by the gay organization GLAAD. You would think by the extreme outrage of these gay groups that he said gays ought to be rounded up and branded or something of that nature. GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz stated, “He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans – and Americans – who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.” Clearly Cruz doesn’t realize that most Americans aren’t in favor of accepting these mutual masturbaters’ behavior as normal in society. Hints why all legislation must be dealt with by the courts system and not through the legislative bodies. Why do they do this? Because they know they won’t convince the 96% of normal US citizens to accept it even in the most “progressive” of places such as California. This is why you won’t see any voting on the issue. Why can’t the courts in the United States get this concept but the government of India can?
While its true as Christians we ought to be loving to all mankind and bringing them to Christ, Christianity has no gray areas. A sin is a sin and there is no changing these facts which was all Phil was essentially stating. Calling a spade a spade. Some people would rather change the truth than accept it.
There is a reason this is the number 1 rated cable show and its not because they break off of traditional values and do whats hip or trendy.
