Duck Dynasty Star Indefinitely Suspended From The A&E Network....

Duck Dynasty Star Indefinitely Suspended By The A&E Network…

I have not seen the reality show, Duck Dynasty - but I am told that members of the family, who are avowed, devout Christians, actually have the Divine gravitas to pray in Jesus’ name when having dinner on the show… and it is this sanctified reverence, apparently, for Christ’ non perverted teachings that made one of the family members, Phil Robertson, parrots to GQ magazine what the Bible has to say about the homosexual lifestyle. Mr. Robertson ran afoul of the Political Correctness police by telling GQ magazine that the homosexual lifestyle is sinful, unnatural, and against the teaching of Christ Jesus.

Once again, all of you who say that you are Christians… know of this tried and true measuring barometer that if there is a moral behavior that the Bible says is sinful and wrong to engage in and Hollywood and the world in general disagree… then, just by that fact alone, you know that the Bible is in the right. Moreover, it is why one must read his or her Bible so that Verily Prime or the advocates for homosexuality cannot pervert the Word of Christ to justify any proscribed behavior, notwithstanding said behavior’s popularity and the worldly influence those who practice it have….

On behalf of Mr. Robertson, there is a question I would like those who are homosexuals and their advocates to answer… in light of those of us who are Traditional Christians and who have read and know our Bible – what do you consider a Sin? In John 4:1-42, Jesus once met a woman at Jacob’s well who had slept with many a married man and who was currently having an affair with another married man, when the Lord told her it was morally wrong - so that was a sin, but not engaging in homosexual acts. And after those who had gathered to stone a lady for committing Adultery (John 8:1-11) walked away, did not Jesus say to her: go and sin no more? So, once again, Mary’s having sex with a married man was considered Sinful by the Christ – but not placing one’s penis in another man’s anus where the waste exits? Jesus also told us too that if I linger on the thought of sleeping with another man’s wife or if I covet anything belonging to my sister or brother or if I call my brother a fool or if I bear false witness or if I lie or if I have sex before marriage (Fornication)… all those are sinful trespasses - but some how it is not a sin to have sex with another man?

This is how crafty those who want to Biblically justify the homosexual lifestyle are… they repeat the lie that Jesus never spoke on homosexuality. In the Gospel of John 8:58, Jesus said before Abraham was… I am… so, who came down in Genesis 19 and destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah? Incidentally, let me underscore just how much homosexual acts are frown upon by the Almighty God… the righteous Lot, Abraham’s nephew, who lived in Sodom begged the homosexuals not to try to sleep with the visiting male angels; Lot even offered to his country men his own daughters to have sex with in the Divine messengers’ stead - now, if the Bible says Fornication (sex before marriage) is a sin, howbeit that Lot was willing to breach that tenet than for his brethren to engage in one - homosexual sex - deemed an abomination with the angels?

Just how it is that I cannot be convinced that any behavior proscribed in the Bible is in error… so too I will never convince many that homosexuality is a sin. Like Mr. Robertson, I believe that God is not a man that He should lie and even though that we are going to be called ‘haters’ because we dare to believe the Word of God, which is Insular and infallible. I do not know, if, because of money… that the Duck Dynasty clan will give in to Political Correctness at the expense of the Word of God – but that is the nature of the world now and it is going to get worse because we were told in the respective scriptures of Isaiah 5:20 and Malachi 2:17 that the world will call Evil, Good, and Good, Evil. Look at the News now and you are going to see that there are gays - Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, and Robin Roberts - sitting in judgment of others and indirectly equating putting one’s penis where the stench of the human waste comes out to that of being Black…. Yes, I got graphic, but those who would criticize me for doing so also would do the same if I were to show images of graphic aborted babies… and who also would have more empathy for those who discarded those same babies than me.

Those of us who do not believe in the murders of babies via Abortion; those of us who faithfully give to charity to assist those who are less fortunate; those of us who would never in a million years support harming those who are gay are the ones now being seen as vile and wicked. When the Apostle Paul spoke out against certain behaviors the Holy Spirit conveyed to him that will keep one out of the Kingdom of Heaven… are those of us who are Traditional Christians then suppose to ignore that homosexuality is among said behaviors? Furthermore, what are we to think when we read in 1st Corinthians 6:10: … Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

I say to Mr. Robertson and the Duck Dynasty Clan – do not give in to the pressure for voicing your God given belief because last year, the owner of Chick-Fil-A said virtually the same thing and the homosexuals and their advocates tried to close them down - but the patrons, many of whom are Traditional Christians, fought back and the homosexual Political Correctness police pressure had no economic effects… so too they must know that there are many Christians whose support will be even be more cemented if Mr. Robertson will hold to his religious convictions and not give him… I am certain that the A&E channel needs the Duck Dynasty Clan more than Mr. Robertson needs A&E. I sincerely hope that Mr. Robertson is not like many of the Rappers, who, as recently as three years ago, were calling homosexuals all sort of vile names, but who now are in lockstep with the homosexual agenda…. Does anyone really believes that all those heretofore homophobic Rappers all of a sudden had the secular epiphany that it is now ok for a man to have sex with another man?

      Censorship DOES exist in this country.

      The right to Freedom of Speech also exists in this country.

      It is not clear which is winning.

      I am not surprised that A&E fired Mr. Robertson for his religious views. And I would not be surprised if A&E finds the whole Robertson clan not wanting to do another show and I wouldn't be surprised if a whole bunch of people decided not to tune in on the A&E channel. It's too easy for militant homosexuals and liberals to shut down the opinions of people who don't agree with them. Time and time again, it is proven that liberals and democrats are the most intolerant.
