Last week, My Faith Votes, a Religious Right voter mobilization effort, featured an interview with Phil Robertson in which the former “Duck Dynasty” star urged Christians to vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections because, he says, the Democrats are evil and depraved God-haters.
“This particular election, this cycle, this is the most important one I’ve seen since I’ve been on the earth,” Robertson said. “Say what you will about Mr. Donald J. Trump, but I have no argument or no negative things to say about his policies. I think he’s been a wonderful president, so far.”
“I just think we ought to look at both groups,” Robertson recommended, citing a passage from the book of Romans. “Since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gives them over to a reprobate mind. They’re full of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They’re God-haters, slanders, gossips. They’re insolent, arrogant, boastful, senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.”
“Just look at both groups and say, ‘Are the Republicans more godly than the other party?'” he concluded. “I’ve looked at it and I said, ‘There’s no doubt about it.’ They’re at least not anti-God, so I would say everyone go out and vote. I would recommend Republican all the way. They’re a lot better than the other side.”
