This past Saturday, The Center for Pregnancy Choices invited Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson to come speak about pregnancy decisions, and he was all too happy to oblige.
Organizers of the event quickly got the word out, creating quite a bit of buzz for the speech.
“We’re having Phil Robertson. It’s a little exciting. He’s definitely a person who makes a lot of talk,” Center for Pregnancy Choices representative Jay-Tea Leggett said, according to WAPT News.
“He’s a solid, conservative Christian who’s unapologetic about his point of view,” Robertson supporter Jeff Pecker added.
The organizers also made it clear that they support Phil by not allowing the press to come in and film the speech. This would ensure that none of the reality star’s words could be used and twisted against him by the mainstream media.
“I know that there’s been controversy. We’ve seen some of that. I personally feel like maybe he didn’t use the best words to make the point he was trying to make, but we still feel like he lines up with our beliefs that life is valuable,” Leggett said.
Leggett is referring to the controversy surrounding a recent speech of Robertson’s in which he spoke of the hypothetical rape and murder of an atheist family.
“I don’t care if it’s Jesus, Gandhi or Moses. All of them are controversial, and they’re all controversial for the same reason,” Pecker commented. “They are unapologetic about the truth, and that’s what this guy has got. I say I’m all for this guy.”
We’re glad that Phil Robertson is continuing to stay strong and preach the word of God wherever he can.
