Skip to comments.'Duck Dynasty' Star Blasts Abortion Culture: 'What in the World Happened to Us?'
Posted on 08/20/2013 10:50:06 AM PDT by rhema
In a video featuring Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson [ Another reason to love the Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson! ] , the TV star - in what appears to be a religious sermon - declares his pro-life stance on the issue of abortion. When discussing the ethics of, and that there's even a debate on, the issue, he asks, "What in the world happened to us?"
"Listen, from the time you started inside your mother's womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right, you have the God-given right to life for crying out loud. You're this long (pointing to his finger). You're a week old inside your mother. They suck you out of there when you're about like that (point to finger again). You wouldn't be here tonight!
"And, when you got to be the size of my thumb, they suck you out. You wouldn't be here. Then, you grow a little bigger, like my fist - and finally eight, nine months later you come out.
"And we debate whether it's a - some woman's right to tear you out of there a piece at a time! C'mon! You have a God-given right to live. And of all places, inside your mother - what in the world happened to us?"
I may have to start watching this show.
He nails it.
I think we lost the debates on abortion and sodomy when we stopped being shocked by it. Instead of saying, “What in the world happened to us?” we say, “Scientific evidence confirms fetal pain, yadayadayada. Sometimes shock and disgust is all that’s really needed.
Good for Phil!
I just started watching it this week. It’s silly but lots of fun. Promotes great Christian values in a fun, backhanded way.
Phil has principles and GUTS!
If you go to youtube there are several videos of Phil Robertson preaching as a lay pastor at various venues. A Godly man with a strong Gospel message.
I love the ‘Duck’.
And on top of the $542.4 million they got from our tax dollars, PP charged the mother $500 to $1,000 to suck out her baby.
ping for later...wow! the left’s attack on Sara will pale compared to what it does to DD!
50 years of liberalism.....
It will probably be off the air soon if they keep speaking their minds in public. It will not be tolerated.
Expect the calls for boycotts to start soon.
Not “us”... them.
In my opinion, it wouldn’t bother the Robertson family at all if they were blacklisted from TV...They have their family values and they put that EXTREMELY ahead of what TV can offer them....
Their way of life and clean living CANNOT be taken away from them...
If they say something negative about sodomy, they are off TV for good and will be attacked by the media to boot. People will call for hate crimes charges.
Like I said...I doubt it would bother them at all...They will not give up their values...PERIOD........
Bear in mind, there WILL reach a point when Americans will NOT accept what is and has happened to our country...I don’t know when it will happen, but at some point something will occur that will cause change...Mark my words....
Wake up America...you're being conned and manipulated into a destructive place...by the G d-less miserable, who want to make you join their club, or simply train you to voluntarily walk off the cliff to hell yourself.
Youth has been served!....garbage.
There's none so blind as those who will not see...
(Joe McCarthy was not one of them)
We went to sh*t, Phil. That’s what.
In no way, shape, or form, could my post be considered defeatist.
You and I both know how the left operates.
No sense in pretending.
Amen, Phil. Amen.
I’ve never watched the show either, but I want to!
Remember, originally abortion was used to PROTECT REPUTATIONS! The mother may have been shamed or even deserted with no support whatsoever. The father may have been a big shot (married) man about town, and had money to hush up any scandal. Or a young kid who saw his future slipping away.
None of those things are reason to kill a child. And the shame and scandal isn’t to the extent it once was.
There is no reason for abortion.
And nearly all second trimester abortions are at doctor’s urging because the child might have something wrong. Again, these doctors are going against humanity and the Hippocratic oath. They are pastel hitlers. Every child deserves a chance no matter what differences he has.
See Headz Explode, Film at 9!
Oh Lordy...he gone and done it now.
(...good for him...)
Thinking the same thing. Not really intrigued by this sort of reality TV, but might be worth a gander?
Anyone doubt that every phone call and email ever made by any member of this family will be studied and they will not rest until TMZ can report on one of the kids getting in trouble.
They WILL be Palinized...and quick!
That’s the cue. Beginning now, militant man-hating feminazis will start trashing the program.
I’m ordering some duck dynasty merchandise.
How long now till A&E experiences another Fluke Boycott, gets cold feet and pulls his show?
For those of you that haven’t watched DD, START! You are missing the most Christian, family, and country centered program since “The Waltons”.
From the description of the show, I thought YUCK! Then, I watched a show, and I’m hooked. I love their simple wisdom, logic, humor, love of family, country, and especially God. They close their shows with the family sitting down at the table together, and Phil giving a prayer. I was astounded and hooked. I read that Phil may be leaving the show (hope not), and Alan, the oldest son, taking a larger roll.
Same here. My first was “Great, another “dumb redneck” show.” Being from the South, I take great offense at those. But I got stuck watching a marathon on A&E and I was absolutely hooked, because here were people standing up for my beliefs, proudly.
Duck Dynasty is just good, clean fun, with characters that you can't help but like.
“Expect the calls for boycotts to start soon.”
What are the liberals going to boycott? Duck calls, camo clothing, shotguns, mudbugs, crawfish, frog legs? Areerakls the ones buying the DD T-shirts and bandaids?
Yes, I know the difference in mudbugs and crawfish, there ain’t none. I think much faster than I type.
That's what my sister would say. I can't believe we had the same parents. She doesn't see wisdom. She sees camo clothing.
He couldn’t be more right if he tried!
It's worth it.
It's also the only "modern" (post, say, 1970) TV show for adults that I feel utterly comfortable with my kids watching. Pretty hard to beat solid religious and family values.
It's never about much of anything. No massive socio-political statements. I saw a couple last night....the guys had a donut eating contest at a local establishment. Phil and his wife went and bought a couch.
'Bout what you'd see in a typical weekend in the WBill household, only without the beards. :-)
You are full of it and are putting forth a tendentious falsehood. Late term abortions are not because. Of doctors’ urging. Doctors are obliged to give all information to patients. If the parents are killers, they kill! Only the dregs of the profession become abortionists. Abortion exists to serve the selfishness of MEN. Males. Men without conscience.
No. I’m not full of it. Doctors often push parents carrying a child with problems toward abortion. There are many documented examples.
Little secret: many doctors do selective reductions of multiple pregnancies and many doctors perform abortions of babies with Down syndrome or cleft palate or disfigured or impaired unborn babies. They think they are helping the child not suffer. Believe me, this is true, I know it.
Little secret— you don’t know jack.
You think the show and the family won’t be attacked by the left for speaking their minds?
