‘Duck Dynasty’ Daddy: America Would Be Better Off ‘If All of Us Loved God’

'Duck Dynasty' Daddy: America Would Be Better Off 'If All of Us Loved God'

Phil Robertson: “I'm not the only one that needed to repent — the whole lot of you needs to repent”

Cast members from  the A&E hit “Duck Dynasty” got a little preachy on Sunday, delivering sermons at White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La., as part of the church's Duck Commander Sunday.

Family patriarch Phil Robertson delivered a particularly impassioned sermon, suggesting that America's liberties are imperiled if the nation's citizens don't recognize them as God-given.

Oh, and he also declared that the nation would “be better off” with a unanimous love of God.

“I'm not the only one that needed to  repent. The whole lot of you needs to repent. All the rest of America. Right? Yeah,” Robertson preached. “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure? ‘Oh, we'll always be here. We'll always have our freedom. We're America, the greatest country on Earth!’ Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis — a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?”

“God loves you,” Robertson continued. “Come on; you know we all be better off in America if all of us loved God and loved each other, right?”

The Robertsons have made no secret of their faith on their hugely popular series, typically ending episodes by sitting around the dinner table saying grace.

    And THAT”S A FACT ….JACK

  • Jesus is God

    Luke 16:31 He said to him,If they do not listen to Moses and the Prohpets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.

    • myxlplyx

      Moses and the prophets (Jews all of them, not christians) were MEN. NOT WOMEN. They cannot tell us what to do with our bodies, they want to continue to enslave women worldwide with their self-righteous bullying.

        It's the baby's body NOT YOURS!

      • markie71

        Jesus is the most Jewish of all, the one who gave the Great Commission to his 11 Apostles as well as to everyone who believes in Him to, “Go forth and make disciples of all nations.” What you consider as self-righteous bullying is the commission set down for the Church that Jesus himself founded. If you have a gripe, go hammer it out with Jesus, G-d in the flesh. That will require you to pray.

    amen brother phil…

  • tammydeaner

    furthermore, if I ever see er hear rather a bleep on duck dynasty, I will no longer watch programs on that channel. that family is a model for all families…

    • dmbellboy

      Tammy, Please don't throw the baby out with the bath water. As Phil has said, “We have to be patient. The “Word” will get out there.” Just keep watching Tammy. Will get the non-believers, one at a time.
      God bless you and yours…

        ‘We'll” not will. Redneck. You haven't conquered the logical minded in millenia and you will not now. Why not believe in Ahura Mazda, the fire god? Hey, he heats your world, warms you and cooks your food. No much more you could ask for in a god. What does your make-believe friend do for you in this real world? Religion is the last refuge of the stupid.

  • Greg Crist

    If you told these rich rednecks they weren't going to make millions at their business or on their tv show if they kept up the religious campaign, they would stop.

    • bojofran

      Hey Crist they made millions before their show. They even built the church that Phil is preaching. They are the real deal!! If you listened to Obama's speech, us “rednecks” cling to our guns and religion. At least we stand for something and aren't ashamed to say so.

      • Lisa

        Absolutely! The shame is in the White House..

      • smooth63

        GUNS and Religion, two things that go together like peanut butter and ketchup. How do you reconcile an object created for nothing more then to kill with and a god who is supposed to be all loving. Like the old saying “I believe in god and I will convert you or kill you trying”

    You are so right Phil

  • holyatheist

    We would be better off if your make-believe god didn't hate so many people.

    • meoff

      There is nothing make believe about God ! You either chose to or not to believe,sadly you seem to not believe.

    • Aunt Si

      He's not make believe and he dont hate noboby but soundslike you do—-

    • crazyGODlover

      How sad……..You have it completely wrong! God created us because He is love. He loves even those who hate Him. It is the sin we commit He hates. All we need to do is realize that we are sinful, ask Jesus to forgive us of that sin and then REPENT…….turn away from sinning. It is like washing clothes. They get dirty, we wash them and start over

  • Dean

    We've tried that. Now look at what we have to show for it.

  • Alex & Debbie

    He's honest, if we deny the Lord, He'll deny us. We need to stand firm for Christ, Quit being soo scared of what others say or think when you mention our Lord. Our country was founded on our Heavenly Father. We're proud of your family. Thankya. It opens the door for the resy of us. May the Lord bless ya'll totally.
    Love. Alex & Debbie

    • myxlplyx

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA. YOU'RE NUTS.

  • myxplyx

    There is no god moron. No Zeus, No Odin, No Chronos, Nobody. Women have a right to their own bodies, and men have no right to dictate that right. If Jesus existed, according to your bible he was a demigod like Hercules or Perseus. YOu people are nuts and attention seeking self righteous grandstanders.

  • myxplyx

    hEY, IT OUGHT TO BE AGAINST GOD TO PUT FAKE BICEPS INTO YOUR SHIRT TO IMPRESS THE LADIES THAT YOU WANT TO FORCE YOUR NONSENSE ON. WHAT ELSE YOU PADDING GRANDPAP/

  • Taylor

    Phil is quite possibly the biggest public role model we have today. Jesus Christ's name MUST be spread among this nation and bring non-believers to salvation before their ETERNAL destruction and separation from God in Hell.

  • frank

    I'm a fan of this show but I don't hold them or anyone else as an example of what a Christian should be, on base that on our Savior. if people don't want to hear the gospel or anything else for that matter than its their American and God given choice. there are many others who do and we should focus on them. again, don't hold anyone as the supreme example, only Christ.

  • Sharon Fowler

    keep up the good work phil.

  • Taffy Lee

    PHil Robertson its call FREEDON OF SPEECH and we know its out there but are not force to live with the those who choose that life style STAND FIRM AND KNOW THAT THE MAKER OF ALL THINGS ARE WATCHING.

  • Judy Gibson

    Preach on brother, preach on!

  • Tom Meeks

    Stand your ground Phil & Family. Having on ALL the armor of God. You have hit the enemy and he's not liking it. A friend of mine once said ” when you throw a rock down a dark alley and you hear a ruckus, you've hit something.” This country was founded on biblical principles and God but in a few short years it has become a Sodom and Gomorrah. The people of God need to remember what our Father has sacrificed so that we may become the children of God. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.

  • markie71

    I am proud of your stand Phil! You thwarted A&E when you told them if your family couldn't pray at the end of the show you would all leave. I believe from that point on, A&E has been at work to contrive a trap to ensnare you. They set a trap but only succeeded in stepping into it themselves. They know nothing of grace! Shake the dust from your feet and garments and walk away, your fans will follow suit.
