Duck Dynasty patriarch, Phil Robertson was recently attacked for basically quoting (albeit loosely) scripture and talking about his basic beliefs in an interview with GQ magazine. He talked openly about his experiences working alongside black workers back in his day and you would have thought he was caught skinning cats alive in the public square!
Phil also spoke to what the Bible says about the “natural use of the body.” It’s what his belief system teaches. And, yes, it’s the Christian system, although his explanation was certainly Phil-ified!
My Christian friends are quick to say they would not have said it the way that he did, but they never said whether they would stand behind the spirit of what he said. Christians retreat, hide under a rock, and don’t openly support Phil, even though they do agree.
I could explain what Phil meant by his comments about the black people with whom he picked cotton, but some people are just dead-set on hating him and people like that don’t really care for an explanation. I even polled some of my black friends about Phil’s comment. None of them took offense.
