Jed is dangerously close to committing a hate crime. His statement is not worded as an opinion so he must now present credible and factual proof along with a credible and factual source of his accusations.
No ridicule here, deaconsbench. The good word clearly states no Football and no Bar-b-que, no shrimp, no crabs, lobster and definitely no oysters or clams. It leaves no uncertainty as to the wearing of Nylon and Polyester. If you participate in any of the above or have translated the good word to fit your lifestyle then you are on that famous highway to the warmer region. No, not Key West, silly. I say in order to preach the bible I am only willing to listen if you are truly embracing the Bible and ALL of its teachings - not just what you feel applies to a "convenient" application for the modern world or to single out one group for persecution. No half assed Christians allowed. As a personal pet peeve I really despise Walmart and feel that all the True Followers of the Good Book need to rise up against the sinners at Walmart and follow the EXACT instructions of Exodus 31:15 New International Version (NIV)
"For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death."
Attn Walmart Shoppers - there will be a public stoning of the Regional Manager in the Parking Lot at 2PM.
I think the right wing has seized this because it confirms the so-called "liberal conspiracy" aka everyone's out to get white Christians. Which really just means that people are calling them on their bullshit.
My problem is that the show Duck Dynasty exists.
a load of humanists ridiculing God's Holy Word, out of spiritually blind eyes. Move along folks, spiritually dead people walking.
That's three more bonks: One for being a troll, one for being rude to Prong, and again for being insulting.
Prong, shut up.
Troll, you are showing your stupidity. Again, how many 12 year old Doogie Howsers did you know in high school?
I agree with Chris' premise: the Bible is pretty clear about homosexuality. If you are a Christian then you are supposed to believe all this stuff righ?
Of course, there's a litany of other silly stuff about all major religions.
Calm down please, Ned Hill.
I'm sure chik fil a would hire him in a flash to be a spokesperson.
Free mkt at work, conservatives should be supportive.
Chris, most scholars without an agenda and worth their salt will tell you the Bible doesn't condemn homosexuality, especially in the verse you quoted. The problem isn't with the Bible, it's with people who fail to apply the appropriate interpretive lenses to it. Primarily the one where Jesus says you should interpret Scripture in manner that is compassionate to people and doesn't cause suffering (Matthew 9:10-13, Matthew 12:1-8).

Sure if ol Phil or any other Robertson was coming out of the closet A&E would give him a 30 minute special and they would call him a pioneer.
Instead he spoke of his beliefs and some thin skin folks got pretty butthurt. How dare he! Full acceptance except for those who don't accept us!
Next non-news story drama......
GET THE FUCK OFF MY WALL YOU FUCKING LIBERAL COCK SUCKERS.
One more bonk for being a troll, and another for being insulting.
Troll - You're a fucking moron. Did you graduate from high school? How many 12 year olds did you have in your high school classes? What a stupid fuck. Typical retarded liberal.
Really, everybody should read that work of sadistic fiction at least once, so you can tell when the "Christians" are lying to you.
One Mjolnir bonk for Jed.
Hahahahaha. Selective Christians again! Heres a few more "Jewels" from the bible and if I catch any of you flagrant bible thumpers breaking these Biblical instructions I will pray that lightning comes down from the heavens and fries your asses to a sizzling crisp. If you want to follow the bible and preach it then follow it to the letter - otherwise shut up. No convenient Bible editing either. You are either in or out, you do not get to choose what parts to follow and what to not follow.
1. Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you." - meaning NO MORE FOOTBALL and NO MORE BAR-B-QUE. Uh oh I think them Ducksters are going to hell immediately.
2. Leviticus 19:28 reads, "You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord." Hmmmmm those Ducktonians are in more deep doo-doo here. This includes all those cute little duck tattoos. The Lord says NO NO NO. Is it getting warmer in here?
3. Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together." Holy crapola, this means the entire Duck Crew is heading to that deep fryer as they are truly massive supporters of polyester blends and spandex for the ladies.
and finally for all of us here in the lowcountry!
4. Leviticus 11:10 reads, "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you." Say what!!!!! No more shrimp and grits, no more oyster roasts and no more crabs. No way!!! Wow, those Christians sure knew how to spoil a good dinner. So put those oyster knives away and pack up the crab and shrimp pots and send them to me ASAP as I have converted to the Church of Bob this Holiday season, a Church where the quality of "Slack" is of utmost importance and something I seem to be very good at.
Phil Robertson is right.Most ffaagggots are pedafiles and rapeist and just sickos.I guess these sick sexual degenerates cant handle the truth that theyre sick vile unaccepted freaks.
yea, its the old biblical literalist conundrum, anti gay xtians know
leviticus by rote and ignore the rest of the archaic,racist,and anti women
crap. The problem is the source not us.
Also, conservative defenders seem to confuse freedom of speech with freedom
Robertson has not been arrested or sanctioned by the gvt. He is free
to speak out all he wants. We are just responding.
A&E, a private sector employer supports gay equality and made their
own personnel decision.
Will not stop his right wing martyrdom though.
PR's claims that blacks were " happy and singing" under Jim Crow are just
The high level of support for Robertsons viewpoint shows that as far
as we have come we still have a long way to go.
