Notable Quotable: “The Duck Dynasty Controversy” – Al Mohler

imagesCAU28TAB

“So, even as most evangelical Christians will likely have concerns about the way Phil Robertson expressed himself in some of his comments and where he made the comments, the fact remains that it is the moral judgment he asserted, not the manner of his assertion, that caused such an uproar. A quick look at the protests from gay activist groups like GLAAD will confirm that judgment. They have protested the words Robertson drew from the Bible and labeled them as “far outside of the mainstream understanding of LGBT people.”

“So the controversy over Duck Dynasty sends a clear signal to anyone who has anything to risk in public life: Say nothing about the sinfulness of homosexual acts or risk sure and certain destruction by the revolutionaries of the new morality. You have been warned.”

  1. You drove me to Google, and the GLAAD statement: http://www.glaad.org/blog/duck-dynastys-phil-robertson-uses-vile-stereotypes-tell-gq-his-thoughts-lgbt-people

    “Far outside the understanding of LGBT people” applied not just to the claim that gay lovemaking is “sin”, but the claim that it led to bestiality, which I hope would be the bit that Al says evangelicals would have “concerns” about.

    GLAAD could be read as condemning what I hope most Evangelicals would condemn. You may find a claim that gay lovemaking is “sinful”, which many evangelicals would support, without the details about bestiality, murder or other things lovemaking gets compared to, similarly condemned by some gay people- I don’t know- but this GLAAD statement is not the blanket condemnation of Christian views that the quote implies.
