No 1st Amendment Rights For “Duck Dynasty” Star – Who’s Next?





Bill Of Rights One Word Change SC

A gaggle of pundits joined Sean Hannity on his show Thursday night and debated whether “Duck Dynasty”’s Phil Robertson had stepped over the great unseen line to insult the sensitivities of the LGBT, gays in general, and the newly forming army of last day’s reprobates in our nation of pop culture sleaze.

Robertson has been canned for correctly paraphrasing the contents of a book in the Bible written to the church of Corinth by the Apostle Paul. To wit:

“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1Co 6: 9-10 NIV)

In the Hannity debate, one idea kept coming to the fore that seemed like a reasonable answer. The suggestion was made that rather than waiting for huge groups of “Dynasty” fans to boycott the A&E show, the entire “Dynasty” cast should walk out together in protest.

The Bible Robertson is so willing to stand on also covers the subject of quitting – that too is also not allowed among the faithful.

Believers are told to hold fast to God’s word and live out the examples Christ gave in the face of all sorts of adversity and resistance, which would include the loss of jobs and careers.

Have Phil Robertson’s First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech been violated? And is the suspension from the A&E show a violation of the law?

In fact, it is; and not even the LGBT with its emerging new favor among the fallen and fickle of the nation have the right to deny Robertson’s civil rights. This one should be tested in the courts, but not in the court of public opinion.

Should Phil turn over and die, or stand and fight this abuse of power fostered by the trends of the new left louses of lust and looseness?

Over nine million fans of “Duck Dynasty” will now have to submit to the collective spanking the LGBT (and others in the new school of law by sensitivities and trends) doles out for them until the matter is completely resolved.

Robertson’s comments were not made on his show, but were part of an interview with GQ magazine.

Phil is quoted for saying, “start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. – don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson also said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Let’s see. Robertson’s quoted the Bible accurately, he expressed a pretty logical analysis or exegesis of the scripture passage, and he was well within his First Amendment rights of expression.

For this, he is labeled a ‘homophobe’ and loses his job.

Did this happen in America?

Let’s rein this nonsense in. It is clearly time to admit that those throwing around the derogatory term ‘homophobe’ have become ‘truthophobes.’

The great moral decline the Bible warns about in the last days has a unique element to it. When homosexuality is addressed, it is followed by a warning that it is birthed by the effort to remove all the specifics about rampant immorality, not just from the scene, but from the very mind and consciences of all men.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient” (Ro 1: 28)

The LGBT and GLAAD have done a marvelous job of indoctrinating this weak-minded, pop culture-driven generation; but even they should pause and take a look at the Constitution of the United States because even in this troubled hour, the First Amendment is still there.

The Bible is still here as well, and it does not agree that gays were born that way. It does, however, intimate that they have got themselves a good helping of last days devils to promote their position in the public.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Rev 16: 13-14)

    They are determined to change American citizens to think like they do and there is no limit to what they are willing to get what they want, more corruption. They have not a clue as what kind of here after that they are building for them selves.

    Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth with me scattereth abroad.

    2 Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many which corrupt the WORD OF GOD: but as of sincerity, but as of GO, in the sight of GOD in the sight of GOD speak we in CHRIST

    This is what it is all about, standing for HIM, standing against HIM or part of the way with HIM.

  2. Free speech has been replaced by paganism. There is but one avenue those who do not agree with Phil might take and that is down to the depths of their own mistaken sexual deviancy.

  3. AMERICA NOW HAS A NEW RELIGION ITS CALLED GAYISM.IT USED TO BE CALLED CHRISTIANITY. MAY AMERICA LIVE ON.

    • Evermyrtle says:

      What a filthy thing to say!!! I can just assume that you are referring to "fake Christians." But you do not seem to be a even a fake Christian, but one who hates our GOD and HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. No body else would ever make such sick comment.

    • I can read the comment WITHOUT the caps.

    THE QUESTION THAT NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH IS, UNDER WHO'S AUTHORITY ARE WE SUBJECT TO? MAN OR GOD? UNTIL THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION CAME TO WASHINGTON DC, THAT WAS AN EASY QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED. IT IS BEGINNING TO LOOK MORE LIKE WE ARE BEING HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR COMMENTS, COMMENTS THAT OFFEND THE HOMOSEXUALS, AND THEY ARE GETTING A PASS ON ANYTHING THEY SAY THAT OTHERS MAY FIND OFFENSIVE. WELL IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEY HAVE JUST STEPPED OVER THE LINE WHEN THEY DECIDED TO MAKE AN ISSUE OF PHIL ROBERTSON'S REPLY WHEN ASKED HIS OPINION OF HOMOSEXUALITY. THE BACKLASH IS BEING FELT ALL ACROSS THE NATION AS PEOPLE ARE COMING OUT OF THE WOODWORK TO DEFEND PHIL. THEY HAVE BECOME SO ACCUSTOMED TO THEIR ADVERSARIES TUCKING THEIR TAIL BETWEEN THEIR LEGS AND CRAWLING INTO A CORNER IN HOPES THAT THEY CAN QUIETLY GET PAST THE BARRAGE OF CRITICISM THAT IS IMMEDIATELY LAUNCHED FOR THE PURPOSE OF SILENCING ANY AND ALL OPPOSITION TO THEIR MOVEMENT. WELL PHIL DID NOT DUCK AND RUN, INSTEAD HE DID WHAT ALL WHO ADHERE TO THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WORD OF GOD SHOULD DO AND THAT IS TO STAND THEIR GROUND. ON THIS ONE IT HAS TO FRUSTRATE NOT ONLY THE HOMOSEXUALS, BUT ALSO THE CORRUPT LEGAL SYSTEM, POLITICIANS, AND LAWYERS BECAUSE THERE IS LITTLE THEY CAN SAY OR DO TO SILENCE PHIL.

    "Evil will continue to preach tolerance until evil becomes dominant and then evil will seek to destroy all truth and good."

    That is what we are seeing in America today and it's all because we've allowed political correctness to be crammed down our throats by the never ending demands of the minority. It's time to tell them all to sht up and go away. They will not inherit the eart but will face the wrath of our creator. In the mean time, we need to stand fast in our beliefs and beat our plow shares into swords.

  6. I am tired of being deprived of my religious beliefs and my convictions in order for OTHERS to be placated!

  7. FM-in-America says:

    I've said this elsewhere, the GOOD LORD removed all those in Sodom and Gomorrah for a good reason. It was to remove the unclean from his world. The word unclean is a broad term, so don't be narrow minded.
    It's obvious the GOOD LORD needs to return and remove this mental virus from his flock. The GOOD LORD needs to also remove those certain leaders who seem to be worshiping the UnLORD.

  8. Jesus said that as the world hates him so shall the world hate those who have accepted his wonderful gift of salvation and follow him. Jesus also said to rejoice when the world persecutes you for your faith in him for great shall your reward be in the kingdom of God. Praise be to God for men like Phil Robinson that stand strong in the faith. He is one of many that will be persected for their faith. The day will come when you will have to choose between your faith in Christ Jesus or death. Make no mistake it is happening in other countries and will make its way to our shores. If God deems that I must die for my faith in Christ Jesus then I will gladly die a martyr singing his praises.

    • You won't be able to hear me singing over the gunfire. I will not turn my cheek again.

    • Seeks_the_truth says:

      "The day will come when you will have to choose between your faith in Christ Jesus or death."

      Choice? There is no 'choice'.
      It will be because of my faith in the Lord God All Mighty and refusal to deny him I will be put to death.
      So you see, for me anyways, there is no choice for I could no more deny God than I can stop Satan from murdering me because of it.

        Isn't this the reaon to stock up on ammo to protect ourselves against anti christians. however today our education system is brainwashing our young with teaching socialism.

        • Seeks_the_truth says:

          You should already have a large stock of components. You should have large blocks of lead handy along side your millions of primers.
          At least the primers. That's the main ingredient.

  9. sandykramer says:

    Unless my feeble mind fails me, First Amendment rights pertain to CONGRESS making no laws vis-a-vis establishment/restriction of religion. Such limitations are not pertinent to private contractual agreements. God, however, recognizes no such abridgments.

  10. Seeks_the_truth says:

    What Phil said is not bigoted, offensive nor is it 'homophobic'.
    As Christians, we must remove the made up word 'homophobia'. We must correct those who attempt to use this word to define Christians who believe God and his Holy Word.

    By using the word 'homophobic' it is placing the fault on the Christian. That it is their belief that is wrong. The proper word to use is Anti-Christian.
    Anytime I see or hear the word 'homophobic', I will replace it with the proper word, anti-Christian.

    I refuse to accept the word 'homophobic' as an actual word. The fault lies on those who deny religion. Not on those who refuse to state that being queer is normal and natural.
    There is a difference.

    Won't you join me in this quest?

  11. Right on Phil and family, there are millions of Christians in this country. It really was a joy to read what you said!! People out there come on, Phil said what you're thinking, maybe you did not have the opportunity as Phil did, but you agree with Phil, whether you are a Christian or non Christian. You gotta be a mans man to say what Phil did. Thank you and God Bless Phil Robertson and family abundantly.

  12. Does this suprise anyone?? This has been in the works since the Mid 60s. As long as it is tolerated and law abiding citizens pay for it and do nothing it will only get worse. Wake up folks or we will have no rights in time to come. Just victims.

  13. james murphy says:

    We're all next, each and every American who dares to oppose in speech or print—instead of quietly keeping it to ourselves——in other words, siting down and shutting up—–to oppose, for example, homosexuality and homosexual "marriage." In the eyes of the leftist liberal establishment "they" have civil liberties, but "we," not deserving them, have no civil liberties. It's as simple as that. But it will not happen all at once. It will go point by point, the punishment of this officer for exercising his civil liberties is only the beginning. There are a lot of government employees. They have learned their lesson or are slowly learning it now, or so the Obama establishment hopes and expects.. Then they will go about silencing the next group in line for liquidation of their civil liberties. One more reason to impeach this tyrant.

  14. TUTU SAYS HE WOULD RATHER GO TO HELL THAN WORSHIP A “HOMOPHOBIC GOD”

    (Friday Church News Notes, August 9, 2013 ,www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143)

    Desmond Tutu, retired Anglican archbishop of South Africa, says that he would rather go to hell than worship a “homophobic God.” Speaking at the launch of a “gay rights” campaign backed by the United Nations, Tutu said, “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place. I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this” (“Archbishop Tutu,” BBC News, July 26, 2013). We are reminded of the prophecy of Psalm 2 that the world’s rulers will take counsel against Jehovah God and His anointed (Christ), saying, “Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”

    This refers to a rejection of God’s holy laws, and Desmond Tutu is exhibit A in this regard. He is a man who is acclaimed by the world and who represents the world’s most modern thinking–a man who received such awards as the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism. And he openly and brashly hates the holy God of the Bible. Of course, God is not “homophobic.” God has no phobias; fallen man has all of the phobias. But God has laws, and according to His laws any sexual relationship outside of holy marriage is sin, and marriage is only legitimate between a man and a woman.

  15. Daryl Jenks says:

    “Have Phil Robertson’s First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech been violated? And is the suspension from the A&E show a violation of the law?”

    you do realize that a private company cannot violate the first amendment, right? and that it could be argued that in firing him (likely for breaching a contract he signed) they were exercising their own first amendment rights?

  16. Edwardkoziol says:

    To put an end to this type of bullshit that we can't say what we really feel is political correctness gone amuck.It started when the PC police decided you couldn't call a colored person a ni–ar then other seen how spooks got treated that they seen it could work for them.Now we can be persecuted for our religious beliefs.

  17. LGBT = Let's Get Broke Together. No sex intended. Iffin' they can say I'm wrong in what I think and do, then I have to prerogative in doing the same

  18. It seems to me a perfect place to file a lawsuit against A and E for enough to buy the whole network…. They not only violated his Constitutional Rights but also violated the Contract of his entire family on Duck Dynasty… It is time for those who are Christian to stop letting these bullies in the GLAAD GROUP act like they are the only ones with civil rights.
    We all have exactly the same Civil Rights, the Constitution covers all of us…… not just GLAAD….
    File the lawsuit and get it under way to court…… Do not turn the other cheek, it is time to fight for what the Constitution says……

Speak Your Mind
