Well I have been following the Phil Robertson mess until I have to speak my mind on it. First and foremost I believe the guy was asked a question and he gave his answer. The answer he gave was a quote in scripture. This is his belief and his faith which anyone reading the bible on a daily basis and going to church believes in. They are to uphold the contents of the bible as true words of God.
For you to ridicule him and to suspend him because of his religious belief’s is wrong. I think it’s against the law even; isn’t it? I don’t think you can discriminate against someone who works for you because of their religious beliefs. Two why would a magazine knowing this is a man of God ask him a question like this. It was a loaded question and the man had to quote the bible to you or he would not be true to his faith. He would be risking his relationship with God in order to say anything else.
The magazine not only set Phil Robertson up but wanted to start trouble by stirring the pot. I think a boycott of this magazine is in order. I believe the magazine used Phil to sell more magazines and will not give mention to their name for that reason. How could you deliberately cause an incident such as this to deliberately hurt not only Phil Robertson but the gay and lesbian population.
It is not right what you did. I believe that God is the only person who can say who is going to heaven or hell. God knows a person’s heart and if it is pure or not. God is not looking for perfection He is God. He knows that perfection isn’t going to be found in man. Phil Robertson is standing on the word of God as set forth in the Old Testament. He didn’t condemn them himself he quoted the scripture which included many other types of behaviors such as the drunkard and the sexually immoral so stop twisting Phil’s word’s and intent.
Some people believe the Old Testament passed away with Jesus even though Jesus states that he came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it I can’t interpret that. He could have meant several things by that comment. I am not going to speculate because it is not my problem. I do what I think is right in my walk with God all others I let God sort it out. That is His job after all not mine. He is to judge those that shall enter into heaven.
I believe that Phil Robertson answered the question by telling this magazine what it says in the bible as if to say it is not up to him (Phil Robertson) to say one way or the other about the issue on gay’s because the bible says this to be so.
Again I am going to put it back on the magazine that published this garbage and tell them you used poor judgment and bad taste in asking the question to start with. There is no need to make the gay population feel bad and no need to start trouble for Phil Robertson when you initiated this little pot stirring problem.
You make me sick all of you who could be so cruel to print this. You weren’t exposing Phil for anything that people can’t figure out for themselves he is a Bible Believing Southern Man. You just wanted to stir up trouble; unnecessary evil hurtful trouble. I hope one day you reap what you sowed fifty times over. That day will come sure as I am typing this; that day will come.
Phil get a lawyer I don’t think they can fire you for your religious beliefs. You weren’t stating them while on the job were you?
