No Christian Should Apologize for Phil Robertson or What He Said
From RedState.com, By: kipling (Diary) 12/19/13 – We are just into the first full day of the A&E / Duck Commander controversy and already weak-kneed “Christian leaders” are lining up to apologize for Phil Robertson and what he said. These perfectly manicured, soft-spoken, self-appointed Christian spokesmen – often with hair that can withstand gale force winds – are only too happy to jump in front of a camera or on the radio waves to soften the plainspoken Word of God. These well-groomed and often academically titled men almost seem offended that a mere rustic – more resembling of John the Baptist or an Old Testament prophet than the hipster pastors and bloggers of today – would dare to boldly proclaim the Word of God to the liberal media complex. Thus, instead of supporting Mr. Robertson and boldly proclaiming the Word of God, they scuttle about and curry favor with the press by attacking the messenger, the message, or both. It is worth taking a look at some of their arguments because we need more boldness, not less.
