Keep in mind that Duck Dynasty is not the highest rated show on A&E. It is not the highest rated cable reality TV show.It is not the highest rated unscripted cable show for this year.
It is the highest rated non-fiction cable show of all cable shows of all time.
But men will not chase lucre when their idols command them, even when they are false idols. The next time someone claims the media glorifies filth and denigrates decency because it merely gives the public what it wants and has no ulterior Leftwing ideology behind, ask him about this example.
You may have heard this story. This is the way the news media reported it:
“Duck Dynasty” dad Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely by the A&E Network following his recent comments on homosexuality, the network announced Wednesday night.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty’,” the network said in a statement.
“His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
When is the last time, dear reader, you heard any major media outlet proclaim themselves to be strong supporters and champions of Christ and His Church?
You may have also heard that Mr Robertson likened Homosexuality to Bestiality or Homosexuals to Terrorists. This is a slander and one that is familiar to me, because the orcs leveled the same slander at me. It is a lie without a particle of truth, uttered by those who cannot read the English language, or who do not care to, and who are confident no one will show the judgment and sense needed to look up the actual remarks.
Below the cut are the actual remarks of Mr Robertson.
(He uses the medical terms for the organs of generation when making his comment, so be warned if you find plain talk too salty.)
“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.”
When the boy-child who wrote the hit piece in GC magazine prodded him with questions about sin, fishing for some word by which the Grand Inquisitor could condemn him, the man answers in words that sound simple and honest to me:
“Everything is blurred in what’s right and wrong. Sin becomes fine. 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.”
“We never ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus — whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later.”
“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.”
He is being much kinder in his wording that I would have been. This is more along the lines I would have used:
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
Mr Robertson also offended the perpetually offended by making this remark:
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
Ah, but saying Godly people are happy is intolerable for the intellectuals to hear. To say that we sing baffles and confounds them. They do not sing. They listen to music. It is not the same thing.
(My friends among the White Trash have also told me that the Southerners — Democrats to a Man — did not treat them any better than the Negro in those days, so there may have been less friction between the poor Black and the poor White was less than the friction between the Black and the Democrat upper class.)
After word came out that he had been fired by A&E, the patriarch had this to say:
“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior…”
“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.”
“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”
In sum, the perpetually offended took offense at a Godfearing man exercising his God-given First Amendment rights by paraphrasing the Bible. He neither misrepresented sacred teaching nor did he say anything to demean anyone. All he did was identify homosexual practice as a sin: this has been a consistent teaching of the Church since Christ, and a consistent teaching of the Bible since Moses; and, despite what you may have heard, all major pagan philosophers and Eastern sages agree, from the Marcus Aurelius to Confucius
At least some commentators are logically self consistent enough to say that all Christians are evil, and any public preaching of what Christ teaches is unforgivable, and must be suppressed and silenced. One Leftheaded fool said plainly what they all think: that the Bible was written by bigots.
Is there any mystery here? The other children of the 60′s who have centered their lives around sex, drugs and rock and roll have also hit rock bottom, and they love it there, and they are busily digging, hoping to break open the roof of hell where their Uncle Screwtape is waiting, showing all the teeth of his ever-hungry mouth in a smile of welcome without the slightest hint of mirth or joy at all.
They hate him because they love sex and drug and rock and roll, but not the normal sex between man and woman, because that is too much like heaven, which they cannot tolerate, no more than trolls can tolerate the sun.
Christians, now is the time. We must no longer allow these bad-tempered hypocritical hysterics and hatemongers to govern our culture. They are cowards, like all bullies, and can easily by shamed into silence.
Christians, tolerate this intolerance no longer.
How did those who indulge in sexually abnormal sins and those who cheer them ever deeper into the mire come to bear the laurels of moral supremacy in our culture, but the saints and martyrs, and men who follow the law of God and know the love of God, be denounced as heretics and condemned as condemned as sinners?
How did we allow these Politically Correct promoters of filth, who egg the homosexuals ever deeper into their sterile lifestyles, with all the conscience of someone who buys free drinks for an alcoholic and lends him the keys to his car, to gain the levers of power and the megaphone of public opinion? The Leftists are genetic defectives who suffer from a lust for power over each and every aspect of your life. They tolerate no dissent.
How did we allow these Thought Police, this band of malignant and morally deformed semi-morons who call themselves moral and mental superiors to ordinary and decent people to become the judges and dictators of what is and is not culturally acceptable?
Who made these bugs into our Jiminy Cricket? Who made them our society’s conscience?
Since they preach the opposite of common sense and common decency, and since their tactics are those of a mob, their tongues those of serpents, and their hearts are empty holes, why in the name of Hell do we listen to them? Who gave them power over us?
Christians, you did.
It is your fault. You did nothing when it was time to act.
The time to act is again. The time is now, this day, this hour.
