Phil Robertson’s Easter Sermon Enraging Homosexuals

Critics are once again raging over “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson’s newfound comments about homosexuality, with some accusing the reality show star of “unleashing another homophobic rant” during an Easter sermon he delivered last month.

Robertson’s latest comments were made April 20, 2014, at Whites Ferry Road Church in West Monroe, Louisiana, though his statements took nearly a month to gain mainstream attention.

In the video, the 68-year-old can be seen speaking to parishioners for more than 40 minutes about the Christian faith, while also poking fun at the media and specifically addressing the controversy that broke out in December following his controversial interview with GQ magazine.

Rather than backing away from his past comments about homosexuality and sin, Robertson doubled down.

“They were mad at me. … because instead of acknowledging their sin like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sin,” he said of those angry about his past comments. “‘Don’t deceive yourself’ — you want the verse? The news media didn’t even know it was a verse. They thought I was just mouthing off.”

Robertson went on to further explain his interview with the GQ reporter, paraphrasing the Bible verse that first landed him in hot water. He said that the reporter asked him if he believes homosexual behavior is a sin.

Then, he told the congregation how he responded.

“I said, ‘Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexual immoral, nor the idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor druggards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherent the kingdom of God,’” Robertson recounted, reciting Paul’s remarks in 1 Corinthians 6:9.

The reality star said that he gave the reporter the biblical list, then delivered the “good news” — that Paul, among others, were once offenders of many of the sins mentioned in the verse, but that God changed them.

“We’ve all been there,” Robertson said, admitting he himself in his past life would have fallen under the biblical list. “The reason we’re here today is to remind you of the gospel that was preached.”

Robertson is now again taking some heat for his remarks.

“If you’re in the mood for feeling sick to your stomach … watch Phil Robertson in all his ignorant glory!,” reads a post on gossip site PerezHilton.com.

And critics also took to social media to offer strong reaction to the sermon. Here’s just a snapshot of some of the critiques:

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
