Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson CPAC speech was overtly Christian and politically incorrect. He hit his critics for saying he was “too religious.” He retorted by quoting the founders, including George Washington who said the young nation’s military men should not curse or be drunk.
Phil Robertson also reminded the audience that the founders were godly and relied on Providence for their miraculous victory against the British. They believed that happiness was contingent on being “godly” and “having Jesus.”
Phil said he was giving the “State of the Union” and noted that even John Adams said, you lose your religion, you lose your morality.
The Duck Dynasty star then hit American immorality hard, citing the 110 million Americans who have sexually transmitted diseases:
I don’t want you America to get sick. I don’t want you to get ill. I don’t want you to come down with a debilitating disease. I don’t want you to die early. If you’re disease free and she’s disease free, you’re married, you keep your sex right there, you won’t get sick from a sexually transmitted disease. Come on!
There is a penalty to be paid from what the beatniks and it morphed into the hippies. You say what do you call the 110 million people who have sexually transmitted illnesses? It’s the revenge of the hippies. Sex, drugs and rock and roll have come back to haunt us. In a bad way! I report, you decide.
He went on to observe,
You want a godly biblical medically safe option? One man, one woman married for life. And if you hate me because I told you that, I told you my love for you is not contingent on how you feel about me. I’ll love you anyway.
Phil then quoted from the father of the Constitution, James Madison:
‘This Constitution was written for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.’ You know what’s happened GOP? We have too many ‘any others’ in the White House. It wasn’t written for them.’
Robertson then encouraged conservatives to “hold on to their weapons,” the bible and the Constitution. He said, “that’s what brought us here.”
