One of the more amusing claims we hear constantly from the Christian right when they’re criticized is that they’re under attack by Satan because they’re just so brave and virtuous. Alan Roberson, one of the Duck Dynasty heirs, made that very argument at the Values Voters Summit (while wearing a camouflage shirt because you wouldn’t want to spook the deer in a suburban Virginia hotel ballroom).
Robertson said his father was a victim of a plot by “the Evil One,” who wants to “derail [his] message” about “a return to godliness,” which apparently includes waxing nostalgic about Jim Crow and smearing gays and lesbians.
“We’re talking about undergoing that change and trying to help other people see that because now you realize we’ve got generations of people in our nation that really don’t understand godliness at any level, they don’t know,” he said.
Could it be…SATAN?
