    Those people?
    He said they were singing and happy. I have no reason to doubt his personal experience.


    And frankly your question is ridiculous as he was not speaking of "all" blacks.

Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

    “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
    and I will be their God,
    and they shall be my people.
    17 Therefore go out from their midst,
    and be separate from them, says the Lord,
    and touch no unclean thing;
    then I will welcome you,
    18 and I will be a father to you,
    and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
    says the Lord Almighty.”


    The Bible teaches us to preach to the non-believer, but not to take up with them. Jesus took in sinners not to coddle them and tell them they were OK in their sin, but took them in to preach to them to turn their back on their sin and follow God's path.






    Jesus would wholeheartedly approve of preaching the gospel. It is what he asked us to do. He didn't tell us not to offend anyone. In fact he told us quite clearly that there would be those people whop would take great offense to his teachings. Some of those people nailed him to a cross.




    Luke 15:1-7

    1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

    3 So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.



    Jesus asked us to go to the sinner and gather them as a shepard would a sheep, but there is not rejoicing unless the sinner repents. An unrepentant sinner is the sheep we were unable to recover.

    This doesn't mean that the repentant stops sinning, but only that they acknowledge their own sin. If homosexuality is a sin (and the Bible pretty clearly states that it is) then a homosexual who does not believe homosexuality is a sin remains an unrepentant sinner.
    But God created the homosexual. Did he make men who lust after other men just to torment them? Or is it just another part of the natural order?

    There are not a lot of choices here.

    God is cruel. For surely creating a homosexual and condemning him to hell for committing the sin of doing that which he was created to do would be cruel. Or, God is a trickster, creating a homosexual just to see if the homosexual can resist temptation, perhaps even marrying a woman and faking that he enjoys sexual relations with her. And, lastly, God doesn't really care if a homosexual does his/ her thing or not.

    Oh..or there simply is no god, at least not quite on the level you all persist seeing one at.

    Makes you wonder if Phil discriminates against non-Christians and Gays at Duck Command. Someone should find out and then sue his ass into poverty.
    Calamity...

    I think, and I could be wrong, but Phil is so dedicated to his beliefs that he would go as far as to scream out hell-fire and damnation against "gay ducks".

    In fact, I think that the only ducks that Phil shoots are the gay ducks.

    I'm not sure it matters. I find it strange that you do. Phil never picked cotton for life. He maybe did it one season or two, tops. He has no idea what it's like to be a black man/woman tied to the fields. Yet, he has the audacity to claim, "They were happy."

    Mexicans love the fields, without them you would not be eating off the trees or have lettuce in your salad.

    Do you think he should import blacks or gay people for his show even though they don't belong there?

    There are enough blacks, interracial couples and gays on every network series now, the Duck Dynasty show does not need them.

    If there were blacks or gays on his show, what would the show be called?

    A&E would not allow it. Remember they can make any decision they want.

    Yes he has the audacity to tell you of his experience and memories from when he was 8 years old.

    If you can remember a couple of years ago when you were 8, did you capture all the socio-political situations going on with the people around you?

    Audacity?
    The audacity comes from you questioning his personal experience.
