Casting Stones at Phil Robertson
This is what Phil Robertson really said.
“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.”
Are you casting stones at Phil Robertson? Woe! The one everyone is USING to destroy him and his show is only what he quoted from the Bible. He then explained HIS OWN opinion of loving everyone in spite of what their beliefs are.
The question remains is why these people are intolerant of someone who clearly is tolerant of THEM? Who are the people casting stones at Phil Robertson? I find that the one who does this is screaming exactly what they themselves are guilty of. Could it be they are trying to reach themselves? I think so. They obviously have an agenda. To force this unwarranted backlash and A&E’s response to get rid of Phil and the show so that they are not espousing their opinions nationally and worldwide. And because they’re jealous of their popularity. Jealousy can be very mean spirited. Woe! Now who wants to cast the first stone?
That is frightening control and manipulation. Just what do we do about this unwanted intrusion into our lives? We LOVE them until they wake up!! It’s tough love. It’s tough to love someone who treats you this way and it’s tough for them to be loved. Tough love.
