You know the election is getting weird when a Duck Dynasty star is weighing in on it. But that’s exactly where we’re at with it all, and with just a few weeks to go before Election Day (which can’t come soon enough), Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson is making the news because of his opinion as to which deity is controlling which candidate.
Now, we’re not sure who asked the Duck Dynasty star for his opinion first, but LGBTQ Nation reports that Phil Robertson believes that Hillary Clinton is winning because she, and the Democratic party, are controlled by Satan.
“Our founding fathers warned us repeatedly to never let this day come, but the day has now come upon us. I mean, think about it. The Democratic Party on [inaudible] when Barack Obama ran, they literally booed God out of the Democratic Party. I mean, not only ran Him out and took His name out of their platform, they booed Him out. So, you get what you ask for, so here we are. So the bottom line is, [when someone said they] entertain the thought of maybe voting for Hillary Clinton, I said, they ran God out of the Democratic Party. She has a hard time telling the truth because the Evil One is the Father of Lies, according to Jesus, and she’s living proof of it, my man.”
And because the Duck Dynasty star is in direct communication with Jesus, Phil Robertson knows that the poor Jewish carpenter who encouraged people to love one another, and who overturned the money tables in the temple, absolutely loves Donald Trump. Why? Because according to Deseret News, the Duck Dynasty star shared the gospel with Donald Trump, who has seen the word of the Lord and believes!
“(I discussed) God becoming flesh…dying for the sins of the world, and, in his case, I said, ‘Dying for your sins, Donald, all of them, I figure there’s a lot — what do you think?’ He didn’t disagree with me. He was just looking at the symbols — a tomb where they put (Jesus) and three days later an arrow coming out of the tomb, and him going to sit down at the father’s right hand. Mr. Trump has heard the gospel from my lips. I owed him that. I loved him enough to tell him.”
But what about the latest Donald Trump comments about women — that is, his insistence that men could grab them by a certain intimate body part, especially if a man is famous? Worry not — the Duck Dynasty star has an answer about that, too! Phil Robertson, who is apparently doing a whole media tour to share the Gospel — and to encourage people to vote for Trump (which, really, seems oddly appropriate) — sat down with NBC News to address those very comments.
“People need to lighten up! And give him some time. He’s a sinner, that’s a start — but we shouldn’t condemn anybody. Voters of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal. Ten-year-old tapes of private conversation with a television talk show host rank very low on their hierarchy of concerns. Trump has repented, and God has forgiven him — and so should you.”
Now, we’re not sure when the Duck Dynasty star — or anyone else — got in touch directly with the Lord to ask him for these statements, but apparently, they’ve done so. You heard it from them first!
