Janet Porter believes that God is behind the uproar surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, who was temporarily suspended after making homophobic and racist comments in an interview with GQ.
Porter told the conservative outlet CNSNews on Friday that the controversy was part of God’s plan to fight gay rights. She called Robertson’s reinstatement a “turning point,” adding that “the tide has turned against the homosexual agenda.”
“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” she continued. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in.”
Thanks to Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, Bible-believing Christians “ended 2013 on a victory,” says Janet Porter, president of Ohio-based Faith2Action (f2a).
“This is the turning point, thanks to the courage of Phil Robertson,” Porter told CNSNews.com. “The tide has turned against the homosexual agenda, and the message is that the only way to keep our freedom is to use it.”
“What I saw happen for the first time in this debate is that Phil Roberston [sic] asserted his freedom and America stood with him. This was the biggest breath of fresh air since Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” she added, calling Robertson’s reinstatement “a real game-changer.”
“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” Porter added. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in. This guy chose duck hunting over professional football. He used his God-given talent to come up with a duck call that leads to the # 1 cable show and he suddenly has more prominence and influence and a bigger platform than any football star. And all America rises up to stand with him.”
“The biggest danger to Christianity is the spiral of silence,” Porter added. The homosexual lobby “seeks to silence us with name-calling and threats. If they are allowed to silence the truth, they will silence the Gospel. If you care about the Gospel, you need to speak up now.”
