Duck Dynasty Stars Pressed Further On Homosexual Stance On CNN

Posted on March 27, 2014

Willie Robertson, one of the stars of the hit TV series “Duck Dynasty,” refused to water down his faith when pressed by CNN to defend his father’s past remarks on homosexuality and the Bible.

“Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson sparked controversy when he described homosexuality as immoral and sinful in an interview with GQ. He paraphrased 1 Corinthians to help explain his beliefs.

In an interview that aired Wednesday on “New Day,” Robertson, accompanied by his wife, Korie, said GQ asked very specific questions to get the answer they wanted all along.

“(Phil) made Christmas very interesting for us,” Robertson joked about his dad. He went on to say that his father “just said what he thought, what was on his heart.”

When CNN’s Kyra Phillips pressed him on what he believes, Robertson provided a very simple answer.

“I believe what the Bible says,” he replied.

“You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind,” he continued. “You have to decide, and God will ultimately decide then. We don’t profess to be God, and we certainly don’t profess to be perfect. Because we have our own sins that we deal with.”

  1. I'm with the Robertson clan.
    What liberals do is equivalent to "bearing false witness".
    A special punishment is reserved for unrepentant persons that are untruthful and support immoral agendas.

  2. It continues to confound me why once someone knows you believe in the bible, they then ask you what is your stance on homosexuality, or abortion, or whatever…

    To the statist media. This is very simple. Stop trying to couch your bigotry against Christianity by asking stupid questions you already know the answers to for a cheap ratings.
    For a true believer in Jesus Christ, Jehovah God, the Holy Spirit and God's word, it is more important to follow God and His approval than to seek the approval of mankind. It is an eternal issue.

    Galatians 1:10 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

  3. The Bible is the very Word of God. It is the final word. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work." 2 Tim 3:16-17 (NLT)

    The Bible is trustworthy:

    •When we lift up the Word of God, God’s Word lifts us up.
    •The Word of God is for everyone; but sadly, not everyone will accept His Word.
    •When we seek the truth, speak the truth, and live according to the truth of God’s Word, we will find ourselves in the center of God’s will.
    •God always keeps His Word; He wants us to keep His Word too.
    •God’s Word is forever True; and by His Word all will be judged.

    Why doesn't someone press CNN further about why they're so intent on destroying the Robertsons? They just don't give up. This is what Phil believes. He made it very clear that he would never treat anyone differently because of who they are or what they believe, so what's the problem?

  5. WhiteFalcon says:

    I'm glad to see some people begin to stand up to these commieonazi commentators that think they can pressure people into saying things they don't believe and don't want to say. To HE!! with the Communist News Network and their entire crowd of losers. I'm glad that Phil and Willie both refused to back down. Right on DD. Don't let those goons cow you down.

  6. I support and watch Duck Dynasty 100%. The Homosexual and lesbian groups are forcing their perversionistic Lifestyle upon the heterosexuals with the aid of the Leftist Liberals in our Society. They are using Common Core and other programs in Schools and against Christianity, They shall loose. Pansyworld and the Left Coast are in jerk step with them. Together they have formed a huge Daisy-Chain. My advice though unreuested is crawl back intoyour closets and leave our children alone. CoExistance is possible then. I do not believe we can legislate Morals nr do I believe that My Morals or behavior should be forced upon you all. Decency however should prevail in our Society. Sodom and Gamorrah is destroyed and so be it. Perform your Adult 'dances' in private and you'll be left alone. Pizzarias serve Circles of Pies not jerks. ~Rick Magee, "MOLONLABE"

    Never ever give up and dont give in . They will dog you untill they get their way. We must become as organized and devoted to our side as they are. Remember they started decades ago and we sat and complyed.

  9. I admire the entire Robertson family for being good role models for today's youth to follow. If more would follow the Robertson's example, there would be a lot less problems in life.

  10. Just as Phil himself says, "if we'd all love God and our neighbour we'd all be better off".
    Amen Mr. Robertson and amen to all who agree.

  11. Phillip the Bruce says:

    And don't forget that when Paul wrote that letter to Timothy, what we call the New Testament did not yet exist. When he said "All Scripture" he meant the Hebrew Sciptures, aka 'the Old Testament.'

  12. jammin2011 says:

    Look. Lighten up. In this country, we have freedom "OF" and freedom "FROM" religion. I am fine with your beliefs.

    But I think you have taken your beliefs to a low of prejudice and condemnation. BOTH of which your God would be ashamed of. "Back of the bus…"

    BTW, I am a woman, married 40 years to my husband. I have lived a life. I am a conservative BUT I have gay friends and they are just as good (if not better) than you.

  13. Barbaree says:

    Phil didn't condem anyone. He stated his beliefs — isn't he allowed to believe what he believes? The only prejudice and condemnation I see is with the libs. They are so race and gender obsessed. No one is putting any in the "back of the bus". We all have friends who are straight and gay, black and white, rich and poor, women and men, but we don't obsess or categorize them constantly! They're just people to us!

  14. Well goody goody for you ( jammin 2011 ) you have gay friends who are better than you . Well for your information , being good or better than someone else doesn't forgive and cleanse anyone of their " Sins " . And either does being a conservative or any other political party.

  15. In reality they just him even more great press, they also give GOD good press. How many people do you think might actually pick up a Bible or read it on-line and MAYBE be touched by the Holy spirit?

  16. Good to know there are other French rednecks… lol

  17. Willie didn't put anyone down, his answer was that he believes what the Bible says, so do I. We are ALL sinners… however, the media goes along with the homosexual agenda that attempts to force everyone to accept their sexual perversions to be normal and acceptable. Cleon Skousn wrote a book call "The Naked Communist" in 1958. In the 8th edition, he included the "45 Communist goals" of the Communist Party in the USA (CPUSA.org), goal # 26:Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy." This is the problem we have today to deal with. Ref: http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

    There is no prejudice accepting the Word of God, Christians will not accept the homosexual agenda.. sin is sin. We all have our own sins to deal with, homosexuals need to accept what the Bible says about what they do with their thoughts and acts as we all do.

  18. kennylee says:

    No one has to accept what the bible says about anything. It is a book some believe its a holy grail on how to live your live other believe its a book of fiction and fairy tails.

  19. I don't get it. Homosexuality has been dragged out of unmentionable status in order to debate it, but anyone who has an opinion that is not politically correct is told they aren't welcome. What a joke.

  20. MikeMoskos says:

    These duck guys are marketing geniuses. Pick just the right parts of the Bible to energize your existing customers base, but more importantly, attract a whole lot more. Avoid any that might be uncomfortable, like divorce.

    The best thing about America is that so many companies like theirs make it so easy to help Chinese peasants get out of poverty. Of course, they make a hefty markup, but they're endearing so who cares?


  22. Barbaree, in today's USA any person of faith is considered ignorant, stupid, and hateful. And if you say anything that the liberal media doesn't agree with they will do anything to destroy you. That is why all people of faith must begin to stand up like they did to Cracker Barrel.
