I dont get this obsession and support for this bible thumping redneck.
Come on didn't he come out with the turd that blacks were better off under Jim crow laws?
The exreme far right really are shooting themselfs in the foot rallying around him.
I am not saying that you are wrong about the 'Bible thumping redneck' comment.
But there is a lot more to Phil Robertson and his clan than meets the eye...
Phil gave up a football career, Terry Bradshaw took over for him at Louisiana Tech.
The duck call that he invented and patented isn't just some horn that you blow. See the US
He wasn't always a 'bible thumper'. He has a past that he isn't particularly proud of, but he doesn't hide.
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson discusses his former “sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle”, a crazy past (which includes being drafted
into the NFL as a quarterback in the 1960s), his wildly successful hunting company Duck Commander and how he became a Christian in his new book due
out in May. During a recent interview about his upcoming memoir Happy, Happy Happy, the star of the hit reality show says that in his late 20s, he
decided to turn his wild life around. While working at a “beer joint”, Robertson said that he struck up a conversation with a guy attempting to
start a Bible study, and decided to give his life to God.
He is a self proclaimed redneck (as am I) but if a man turns his life around and lives a good life because he is a 'Bible thumper', I am not going to
kick him for it.
