“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson was on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show this week to promote his book, “UnPHILtered: The Way I See It,” and he certainly was unfiltered during this interview, particularly when the topic turns to the Middle East and Islamic extremists.
“In this case, you either have to convert them — which I think would be next to impossible. I’m not giving up on them, but I’m saying either convert them or kill them, one or the other,” says Robertson. “To convert them, that time has come and gone. I think with this ideology that we’re faced with, this is like street gangs, street thugs on steroids. … This is more like worldwide gang warfare, but this gang is well armed and well organized. I think my opinion, we’ve got to deal with this group way more harshly than we have up to this point.”
Robertson continues, “I’d much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and pull them to Jesus Chris, the author and perfecter of having your sins removed and being raised from the dead. I would rather preach the gospel of Jesus to them. However, if it’s a gun fight and a gun fight alone, if that’s what they’re looking for, me personally, I am prepared for either one.”
When Hannity says that people will find these comments controversial because Robertson has previously made headlines for controversial comments regarding homosexuality, Robertson says we’re all sinners.
“It’s all sin, whether you lie, whether you steal, whether you rob, whether you rape. It’s just all sin. One little white lie does you in as fast as being sexually immoral,” says Robertson.
