Last week, Phil Robertson, the patriarch from “Duck Dynasty” went out on the campaign trail for Alabama Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore.
Robertson is known for his controversial religious views. He’s also known to speak out about moral issues. He did just this on September 25th at the campaign rally.
Robertson, who was speaking in support of Moore, read aloud a portion of chapter one of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans.
“Since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved man to do what ought not to be done. They became filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity.”
At the conclusion of the verses, he said, “Sounds like America, doesn’t it?”
He continued, “I’m quoting what the apostle Paul said 2,000 years ago.”
He proceeded to reference the NFL protests. For him, they serve as an example of what’s wrong with America. But they are only a symptom of the problem.
“When you look on our streets in America, you see people running around with signs on top of their head, all puffed up … won’t even acknowledge the flag of the United States of America – the national anthem! You say what in the world’s going on? They’re senseless! Faithless!”
He says disrespect like that is what happens when you remove God from the equation. We have become a Godless nation guided by our own desires rather than God’s teachings. Being Godless also means we approve of other people’s sins.
“Remember, as soon as you get God out of your psyche, he’s giving you a list after list … of what people do,” expounding on Paul’s letter. “They not only do these things, but they approve of those who practice them.”
And then he reached the point that he thought was the biggest sin of America. The sin that would cause America to collapse.
“When a nation slaughters its offspring—one million a year—they always collapse those nations do—you can’t do that!” Robertson added.
On September 26th, won his candidacy Campaigning for Alabama Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore this week, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson warned that the U.S. would collapse if it continues to slaughter its offspring.
This isn’t the first time Robertson has spoken out against abortion. He makes a practice of saying things—of speaking the truth—whether or not it is politically correct.
In a 2014 sermon, he outlined his views on abortion. He started by denouncing political correctness, saying that the “politically correct crowd” has slaughtered 55 million fetuses.
“So what does our government do? We legislate murder,” declared Robertson. “That’s what abortion is. Then we turn around; now we’re legislating perversion.”
Robertson continued, pointing out how no Bible-believing Christian could ever support abortion.
“You have God’s law that says, ‘Don’t shed innocent blood, don’t murder.’ So our government says no, we’re gonna’ trump that: you can kill them. And half of our country said we’re going with the government instead of God.”
He concluded, “What do you call that, aborting human beings in their mother’s womb? It’s sin… We call it sin. God says it is sin. All scripture is God’s.”
