The Duck Dynasty Clan Wants You to Know They Aren’t Bigots, They’re Helping You Get Closer to God
This weekend, the Family Research Council hosted the Values Voter Summit, a meeting of some of the most hardcore Christian conservatives around.
Lending some star power to the right-wing convention, the FRC even brought in some reality show stars, including the Duggar Family and a member of the Duck Dynasty clan.
While the Duggar clan managed to stay mostly out of the fray, lining up their cute kids and talking family values, Alan Robertson, son of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, used his time at the mike to explain why his dad’s homophobic and racist rants were actually God’s words meant to bring heathens (like me and you) to the light.
To recap the controversy, late last year, A&E suspended the Duck Dynasty star after he made this racial comment about blacks in the pre-Civil War south:
“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.”
He also slammed homosexuals:
“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.”
Even after his suspension was lifted, Phil Robertson continued to made homophobic references and controversial remarks, most recently declaring that all Muslims should be converted or killed.
“You either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible…either convert them or kill them.”
According to Alan Robertson, however, people should not blame his dad or call him a bigot for those remarks. The controversy was created by the “Evil One” who wants to derail his dad’s message to the American people to “return to godliness.”
Furthermore, if the heathens all around would just understand godliness at all, apparently everyone would applaud Papa Phil and his message.
“We’re talking about undergoing that change and trying to help other people see that because now you realize we’ve got generations of people in our nation that really don’t understand godliness at any level, they don’t know,” Alan preached.
He then concluded that he feels sorry for those of us not as enlightened as the Duck Dynasty clan.
In fact, he’s even giving us a shout-out to God.
“I pray for even our American brothers and sisters who aren’t there yet,” Alan said, hoping more will embrace the true message as taught by prophet Phil. “I pray for them, because I want our nation to rise up and be great again.”
