Ted Cruz comes out in support of 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson

After news broke the patriarch of the "Duck Commander" family, Phil Robertson, was being suspended from A&E's number one show, "Duck Dynasty," after making what some say are "controversial remarks" to GQ magazine, Texas senator, Ted Cruz, came out with a statement supporting Robertson:

The reason that so many Americans love Duck Dynasty is because it represents the America usually ignored or mocked by liberal elites: a family that loves and cares for each other, believes in God, and speaks openly about their faith.

If you believe in free speech or religious liberty, you should be deeply dismayed over the treatment of Phil Robertson. Phil expressed his personal views and his own religious faith; for that, he was suspended from his job. In a free society, anyone is free to disagree with him--but the mainstream media should not behave as the thought police censoring the views with which they disagree.

And, as PC enforcers often forget, tolerance is a two-way street. Here's what Phil himself had to say about accepting and loving everybody:

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

Time Magazine's Man of the Year, Pope Francis, gave the end note to this issue...in five simple words, this humble man gave profound words to all those who would judge, condemn & vilify another person...five words that each & every hate-filled person who looks down on another should think of first before hurling vile, hurtful, disgraceful condemnation on someone else...WHO AM I TO JUDGE? .Are you God? Who gave you the power to condemn another when you are also a sinner?

Katie, the ultimate outcome of anyone else's eternal prospects lies solely in the decision every individual makes for THEIR own life...sorry to tell you this, but you, or anyone else, do NOT have the right to determine the life or lifestyle of anyone else. Everyone has the opportunity to be exposed to faith messages and to choose, in their own mind/conscience/life which path to follow...you are NOT God and, truth be told, you do not know the exact mind of God...He created us...you didn't.

God does love mankind, but He does not tolerate sin regardless of what sin that it is. Unless a person comes to a knowledge of Scripture and does the will of God, he cannot be saved. A "sin unto death" is what homosexuality is and so is adultery, stealing, etc. Those sins have to be repented of and you cannot continue in them. That is why God sent His Son to die for our sins. I pray that all will come to a knowledge of Scripture. "No man cometh unto the Father but by Me."

Ted Cruz is to Conservatism what Jesse Jackson is to equal rights. The question American Citizens should be asking themselves is ; "What is really going on that media diverts our attention with this"? Is it that the Fed only reduced it's "Funny money" program by 10 billion/month or is it just to ignore America's true unemployment numbers?

Where to start on this one? Let's see...both of the odd-ball off-the-wall excuses for men should, at the very least, keep their sick un-Christian opinions to themselves...but who would expect anything different from these two clown...Robertson, a former druggy/womanizer/down-and-dirty bad boy and cruz, a big-mouthed anti-American, make such an evil couple...also put Jindal, rushbo, the faux noise crew, etc., in with the bearded one and the Canadian-born fool.
