WASHINGTON, September 22, 2014 – He’s ba-a-a-ack! Duck Dynasty star and outspoken paterfamilias Phil Robertson was famously if briefly banned from his own reality show in December 2013 after affirming, in a gotcha GQ interview, his religious belief that homosexuality is a sin.
Now, Papa Phil is at it again, as he expressed in a recent Sunday sermon given in White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ. Robertson really hit his stride when he vigorously asserted that the United States is now “swimming in a cesspool of politically correct crap.”
At the same time, in an unintentionally ironic counterpoint to Robertson’s jeremiad, granddaughter Sadie wowed both the audience and the judges in her recent debut on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.”
Agree with him or not, Robertson’s blunt comment was and is an arguably logical reaction to today’s vicious secular environment in the U.S. His pronouncement merely exposes to the light the painfully obvious, all-out efforts of self-appointed American elites to permanently ban Christianity from the public sphere.
“America is sick. It’s sinfully sick, and so is the world,” observed Robertson. “When is that last time you heard someone in the news media say with their straight voice and any kind of admiration, ‘Jesus Christ. Jesus?’ They won’t even mention his name,” he noted, before firing his memorable verbal fastball.
Here’s the full video clip:
So far, the MSM hasn’t exactly jumped on Robertson for his latest dissing of their pals, the PC Police. Perhaps both they and A&E learned their lesson during the brief but widespread backlash that greeted last season’s short-lived suspension of the network’s most surprising celebrity. At that time, overwhelming public support forced the network to quickly re-admit the surprisingly bankable reality star to his popular show.
Speaking of bankable, Robertson’s 17-year old granddaughter Sadie’s scintillating dance routine with pro dancer Mark Bellas on DTWS could arguably be re-titled “Dazzling With The Stars.”
In case you missed it, here’s the segment intro, the entire amazing cha-cha dance sequence, and the judges’ comments and voting via a recent YouTube video from the popular ABC series.
Gosh. Maybe committed Christians do really have more fun.
As always, one must conclude that both families and life are far more complex, diverse and interesting than America’s ruling and elite classes would have us believe.
