What Was Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson Doing When He Was Suspended?
Despite extremists in the LGBT community going full-bore with the character assassination of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, which ultimately led to his suspension, a report out of Louisiana shows a level of humanity one could expect from a deeply faith-driven individual.
Via CBS Houston:
“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson was praying at church Wednesday night for a girl battling cancer as he was being suspended from the show indefinitely following his comments about homosexuality in a GQ interview.
In an interview with CNN, Mike Kellett, senior pastor of White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ, said the patriarch of the Robertson family was leading church members in prayer Wednesday night.
“Phil led us in prayer. There were greater things on our minds than the firestorm of controversy about this article,” Kellett told CNN.
Kellett added that the 67-year-old Robertson appeared calm despite the controversy that was surrounding him.
The ‘controversy’ that led to Robertson’s dismissal? Stating that a man seemingly should be more attracted to a woman’s body as opposed to another man’s, and to think otherwise is a sin according to his beliefs.
That ‘controversial’ view is held by 45% of the country, as well as 78% of evangelical Christians, of which Robertson identifies as.
So why would comments that half of the country agrees with become controversial? Why does a network such as A&E go out of their way to cater to the other half of the country exclusively? Because progreessives in this country have made religion and faith itself a controversy.
Also in Louisiana, Governor Bobby Jindal was taking a stand yesterday for Robertson.
Via Bobby Jindal:
“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.
Unfortunately Mr. Jindal, the politically correct crowd own this nation right now. They dictate free speech as they see fit. We are now run by a nation of Miley Cyrus clones.
