“Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson’s comments about the sinfulness of homosexuality during a GQ interview in December of 2013 ruffled many feathers. The flap immediately revealed the utter disdain that many pro-homosexual groups have for any biblical or moral influence upon the media or the entertainment industry.
In particular, the virulent, God-hating, perversity-promoting GLAAD initiated a hunting season on Christians. In honor of the Robertsons’ bold stand, however, I have labeled this attack as Operation Sitting Duck. The insidious 3-step scheme goes something like this:
1. Go on a seek-and-destroy mission to locate any true Christians employed in entertainment or media circles.
2. Set up an interview with the Christian celebrity or media personality, and eventually ask them about their stance on homosexuality or same-sex “marriage.”
3. When the Christian answers honestly, demand that they be immediately punished or preferrably terminated. This way, all Christians can be effectively eliminated from public view, and homosexuals will not have to be reminded of the perversity of their lifestyle.
Well, CNN may be at it again or perhaps quite innocently, they could provoke the homofascists to reactivate Operation Sitting Duck.
In an interview that aired Wednesday on “New Day,” CNN’s Kyra Phillips questioned Willie Robertson, accompanied by his wife, Korie, about his father’s earlier statements on homosexuality.
“(Phil) made Christmas very interesting for us,” Willie joked, “Phil just said what he thought, what was on his heart. He didn’t say it quite, he did some paraphrasing.”
Then, CNN’s Kyra Phillips pressed him on what he believes.
Willie tentatively replied, “That’s what 1 Corinthians says…”
“What does Willie say?” Kyra interrupted.
“I believe what the Bible says,” he replied.
“You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind,” he continued. “You have to decide, and God will ultimately decide then. We don’t profess to be God, and we certainly don’t profess to be perfect at all. Because we have our own sins that we deal with.”
Korie Robertson then interjected that “anybody who knows (Phil) … any gay, straight, black white, anybody who knows Phil knows that he is about love and his message is about God’s love, God’s grace and God’s forgiveness, ultimately.”
The CNN reporter pressed further, asking if they believe the Bible is “literal.”
“That’s how it was said, yeah,” Robertson answered.
Kyra Phillips concluded with a probing question, “This all goes away tomorrow, be honest with me, how does that hit the heart?”
“Oh, totally fine, totally fine, yeah” Korie assured the viewers, “We were happy before, we’ll be happy after. If this is it, this it. We had a good run.”
“We were able to use that platform to get out God’s message, and if it ended right there, it ended right there,” Willie concluded, “and I felt like that was pretty much what God prepared us to do.”
That’s the exclamation point to a life of faith in Christ!
As expected, certain left-leaning outlets are already framing Willie Robertson’s candid remarks as a new so-called “controversy”.
Let’s just hope it’s not round two of Operation Sitting Duck.
