Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Oh hell, let’s not mince words — he’s a fucking moron. After spouting lots of stupid about gay people, now he’s wading in to foreign policy and proving once again that he really should shut the hole that makes the words. And he’s doing it, of course, on Fox News, which thinks guys with long beards look like terrorists. Except when they don’t.
While Barack Obama may not have a strategy for dealing with ISIS, Robertson laid out a stark, black-and-white choice for Americans in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity Tuesday night.
“You either have to convert them, which I think is almost impossible,” Robertson told Hannity. “I’m not giving up on them, but I’m saying convert them or kill them.”
“Worldwide, planetwide, biblically speaking, two groups of people – the children of God and the whole world is under the control of the evil one,” said Robertson. “That’s 1 John 5:19. Ephesians 2 says: The evil one works in those who are disobedient. Galatians 3: They are prisoners of sin. Second Timothy 2: The Bible says they’ve been taken captive by Satan to do his will.”
I’m not likely to take seriously anyone who thinks the world is this simple.
