    He compared homosexuality to bestiality, then he went on to paraphrase a verse out of Romans. That verse doesn't mention bestiality. He added it.

Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he tells reporter Drew Magary. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

    'Duck Dynasty's' Phil Robertson sounds off on gays, civil rights - latimes.com

    His implication is clear as day. Start with homosexuality then it morphs into raping an animal. No decent person makes such a comparison. Moreover, he then goes on to paraphrase a verse as you say, but that verse never mentions bestiality. That is a comparison he made himself. You don't find that one in scripture.

    Just to clear up some definitions:

    In Biblical usage, ‘fornication’ can mean any sexual congress outside monogamous marriage. It thus includes not only premarital sex, but also adultery, homosexual acts, incest, remarriage after un-Biblical divorce, and sexual acts with animals, all of which are explicitly forbidden in the law as given through Moses (Leviticus 20:10-21). Christ expanded the prohibition against adultery to include even sexual lusting (Matthew 5:28).”

    It would help the credibility of the left if they didn't constantly manipulate the truth in their zeal to destroy those they are afraid of.

    You've left out the question and context that preceeded the quote. So the question is, why? Why leave it out? Why make the bias and agenda so blatently clear by posting something so easily refuted?

    So, the challenge remains for the left to explain this offensive.

    [...]

    before the show premiered in spring 2012, and warned him not to overshare on hot-button topics such as gay rights and race relations, according to a producer familiar with the situation.

    [...]
    Interesting.
    He said nothing about gay rights, or about race relations.

    Yet someone thinks this is relevant enough to publish an article about it.
    It seems that since the gay supporters twisted what he said and tried to say it was a comparison when it wasn't, they are now trying to cover their asses by saying he was warned, when what is said isn't even relevant to the supposed warning.

    Wrong, as you are misconstruing it.
    He clearly was speaking about what was sinful in answer to a question. There was no comparison being made.

    Really?
    You do not know that, or how people like Phil answer questions as to what is sinful.
    You are making a wild assumption to justify you absurd intolerance and outrage.

    share with us what was got wrong
    explain the context of his words and how that would change the meaning of what he said
    i will be awaiting your reply with this insight
