The Holy Spirit is exactly what's missing in these people's lives. One thing for sure is there will be no atheists in He$$, they'll have already confessed and bowed and the burning and gnashing of teeth will keep them busy.

Could it be possible the creator of Duck Dynasty Scott Gurney played a star role in a gay porn film called "The Fluffer"

I was getting intellectual so some people might learn something. Its obvious people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. My point was, cheating on a spouse is merely one type of Adultery, it is seed mixture of one holy covenant to another. However, there is also racial seed mixture, and there is mixing of nations. When a nation becomes mixed, culturally,religiously, and racially, the end result is some kind of Adultery. The Nation, Family,or Person becomes adulterated. This is very clear in the Greek. Adultery is merely more than cheating on a spouse, it had a broad meaning to save a people from eventual destruction nationally and the break up of the family. However, I do agree with you on beastiality and homosexuality. Mr Phil had every right to speak the truth. I would think he would have a law-suit on his hands becomes of the violation of his first amendment rights.....We will see how it turns out

Actually Mr. Duck Dynasty is very ignorant and just plain dumb. You should know your boss and the people who write your checks. The creator of the show played a gay porn star in the move "The Fluffer".

The bible also says that all women are to remain "SILENT" in a church. For women who preach or sing in the choir or do other things in their congregation that requires them to speak, do you also include them in the "sinners who will not see the Kingdom Of Heaven", because they are flagrantly and directly and willingly disobeying that biblical command ?
paul is speaking here to out of control women who cause upsets.

Phil is entitled to his opinion and facts from the Bible. The same book that every elected official and every person sworn to testify in court puts there right hand on an swears an oath to. The real problem is that Christians are way to tolerant of people who lack the tolerance for Christians and their beliefs. If this was the middle east the homosexuals would either be stoned to death or have their heads sawn off. Wake up fellow Americans. When the truth no longer prevails we are doomed. If you read Phil's statements its far from hateful. He mentions his past failings and express love for all people.

Noe, he's not ! He's VERY clear ! There's no ambiguity or wiggle room in that part of scripture. Women are to be SILENT in a church. End of story. THAT is what Saint Paul said.

You know he didn't goggle his employer but his employer knew up front, they were going to pray and give God the glory.

I would still wager that most of the comments directed at this topic calling Phil a homophobe have never watched the show, or read the interview.

The interviewer felt it was beneath him to go to Louisiana and do an interview with Phil.

After all, it was GQ magazine.

So from the start it was just a matter if a guy who didn't want the job, in a place full of REDNECKS, with no decent food so he slowly but surely baited Phil.

So freedom of speech be damned, this was a "gotcha" interview from the start.

So diversity is what the Gay Community wants? Well they got it.
It just didn't suit them so now comes the uproar.

I don't give a damn if you have a float at the Rose Bowl Parade with two gay men exchanging vows. What do I care?

I feel until we can behave somewhat like adults and accept each others point of view and have some sort of dialog we will be mired in this "he said-she said" crap forever.

Who do you need to accept you lifestyle? Phil?
That would make you feel better.

My TV has lots of channels, I don't watch Queer Eye, Honey Boo Boo, Hog Wrestlers, Storage Unit bidders, or half naked Rodeo Girls.

It's a choice, learn to make one.

You clearly can not debate a topic without resorting to insults. That is a sign of your limited education. I said he played a gay porn star I didn't say he did gay porn. Big difference.

The Robertson's don't care about the fame. They are true Christians and will speak their mind and express their beliefs. A&E needs them more than they need A&E. If they want to stay on TV I am sure the other networks will fight to get them. Their show has exploded because of their beliefs and it is a show that he entire family can watch. The ratings show traditional family values and clean humor is what the public has been wanting.

Phil did nothing wrong. He never compared homosexuality with beastiality. He stated that in the bible it says that they are sin, as is infidelity. His comments on African Americans was in no way racist. Phil has a right to work and not be persecuted for his religious beliefs. I have read what phil said over and over, and have seen those words twisted and manipulated by the true haters. Hope everybody rallies around him.

I agree with Brian. Just passin' by, here, to give a good word for Phil. I like him and his family. I don't watch anything else on A&E except Duck Dynasty. I think other networks would be interested in their program.
I love it when they gather around the table and thank God for what God has given them. Hey! I let my kids watch it! It's how I became familiar with it.
I'm on Phil's side! I like a Christian that will stand up for what he believes in and for the Word of God--even when it's not the popular thing to say or do. I hope those guys move to another channel, because I will probably continue to watch it---then--but not now--not as long as A&E is being prejudiced against Christians. Phil was asked a question. He gave an answer. Free speech! Heeeeeeeyyyyy, y'all remember free speech? Freedom of religion? The freedom to quote the Bible? Come on, now!
Do I hate homosexual/lesbian people? No! How could I? One of my dearest friends in this world was gay. He knew how I felt and I knew how he felt. Therefore, I agree with Romans 1 when it comes to sexual sins. There's other places, too, that mention sexual sins--but Romans 1 is a good start. I agree with the entire Bible when it comes to any sin. Do I sin? Of course, I do--but I pray and ask God to forgive me.
We hate the sin--even if we do it. But we love the sinner. Dearly!
Salvation is available, and deliverance is too. There is deliverance for people if they want it. God is able and willing to forgive and to deliver. Yes, He is!
We all need the Lord, no matter who we are nor how good or how bad we act. No matter what our lifestyles are--we need God. So, what it Phil guilty of, then? Being a Christian and quoting something out of the Bible? There was a time when it was less controversial. Looks like Phil is a man of conviction. I like him and his family.

For nonbelievers, scoffers, etc., check this out!
This is from the first chapter of John.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For He sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

He that believes on Him (Jesus) is not condemned, but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed In the name of the only begotten Son of God.

And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the Light, lest their deeds should be reproved.

But he that does truth comes to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Is this world in some trouble? Yes, it is! We need to turn to God and to hear God's voice. As people, and as a nation, will we hear God's voice?

I love you all! God in Heaven loves you!
