Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson asks America to repent
The family of Duck Dynasty has never been shy about sharing their thoughts, but patriarch Phil Robertson is telling Americans they need more God in their lives.
The family featured on Duck Dynasty are used to sharing their thoughts, but now they are doing so in a whole different way. In a new interview with GQ, Phil Robertson asks the people of the world to rethink what they are doing.
"The Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off," Robertson told the magazine. "We ought to just be repentant, turn to God and let's get on with it, and everything will turn around.
"Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong. Sin becomes fine."
Robertson, who has talked about leaving the show before, decided that during Christmastime, he wanted to open up about his family's beliefs.
"We're Bible-thumpers who just happened to end up on television. Which ain't gonna last forever," he said.
The family has experienced sudden fame since the launch of their TV show and have since appeared on other shows as well.
The Robertson patriarch explained that while they believe what they believe, they are not trying to judge anyone on what they believe or how they live. They just want people to show love to others.
"We never, ever judge someone on who's going to heaven, hell. That's the Almighty's job," he said, via People. " We just love 'em, give 'em the good news about Jesus — whether they're homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort 'em out later, you see what I'm saying?"
Although he directs people not to judge, Robertson continued by targeting some of those groups and using stereotypes, and it didn't sit well with GLAAD.
Spokesperson Wilson Cruz told E! News, "Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples."
The Duck Dynasty issue of GQ will be on newsstands Dec. 24.
