That’s right, if you clicked to get here, you are one step closer to fixing your PC – that is your Political Correctness….
You see, your God given American Freedom has been violated; you have been told that you must be Politically Correct by the world (despite what our Constitution clearly states in the FIRST Amendment).
It is interesting that the idea to write this blog came a little over a week ago. Now this week, the popular Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty has quickly held to his beliefs and NOT been Politically Correct. Hallelujah for him!
This week we saw the world attempt to influence and distract the beliefs of many Americans as A&E suspended the patriachal leader and Duck Commander, Phil, from filming in future episodes. All of this because he took his right to free speech to heart and expressed his opinion. Oh my! He can’t do that! Well, that’s what A&E said. Supporters of the LGBT community and GLAAD were outraged and wrote letters demanding A&E do something about Phil’s freedom (uh… I mean his remarks). Interesting that they have the right to speak out against him, but he doesn’t have the right to speak?
How is it that A&E aired the series Bonnie and Clyde that promoted robbing banks and killing people ON television, but yet they have a problem with something a Christian says off-air? Sounds like a double standard!
Sure, I’ll admit the First Amendment really states that “Congress shall make no law….[prohibiting] free speech.” BUT, what happened to the popular phrase we all have seen on TV:
“the views and opinions expressed on this program by the artists, producers, host/co-hosts, etc. are solely the opinions of the original source who express them. They do not necessarily represent the opinions of _____, it’s sponsors, or it’s Affiliates.”
That’s a pretty easy out for any company, and we have all seen or heard that statement innumerable times in our lives. Why didn’t A&E just choose to use this during the upcoming season starting January 15th?
It’s because of Christ and people are offended by His truth! It hurts when people are scolded, and he scolded some people, but he also mentioned that he himself is not perfect. And in the actual interview Phil is quoted saying: “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists.”
I’m not a big fan of the show although I have watched a few episodes, but I am a fan of Christians who speak the truth.
The Bible records Jesus on keeping His Truth:
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in My Word, you are truly My disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”
34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:31-34 ESV)
Many will try to argue with Christians saying that Jesus promoted love and that we should love one another. This is absolutely true, however, that did not stop Him from dropping the hammer on sin:
34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew 10:34-39 ESV)
This is not meant to say we should attempt to bring war (sword) to the world, but to bring truth to it. We are not to love the world more than we love Jesus.
Stand your ground Christians, this is a democracy. We founded this country on Christian principles, let’s keep it that way!
Thanks Phil for standing up for your Christian beliefs!
