Phil Robertson says America’s sins have created a ‘land of lawlessness’

Duck Dynasty reality television star Phil Robertson took aim at the problems in America, this time saying it’s a sin problem, turning the country “into a land of lawlessness” and quoting scripture.

“In politics, as you’ve noticed in America, we’ve turned into a land of lawlessness,” Robertson told the Nebraska delegation referring to the recent police shootings in American cities and Islamic terrorist attacks. “America’s problem is it’s become so sinful. No one ever mentions sins anymore. But I will. Everyone who sins breaks the law. In fact, sin is lawlessness.”

He quoted a scripture passage from 1 John 3:4 and continued, “What happened to us? We forgot God. We started with Him. Read your founding fathers. We have shoved him back, back, back. We’ve taken Him out of Hollywood, we’ve taken Him out of the news media, we’ve taken Him out of the institutions of higher learning, we’ve taken Him out of our government. You can’t forget God, because when you do … ”

Robertson’s son, Willie, spoke at the Republican National Convention, hitting on the similar theme, stumping for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Phil Robertson, a staunch opponent of abortion, initially backed Ted Cruz but joined his son in endorsing Trump after the primaries.

Robertson, the family patriarch, made the rounds during the convention to various state delegations to promote Torchbearer, a new documentary focused on the impact of the decline of religion in the world that debuted at the convention.

“You’re going to see what happened to nations that have come before you and powers that have come before you,” the 70-year-old Robertson said in reference to the film. “You’re going to see what happens to them when they forget God, the one who created the cosmos.”

Robertson offered his solution: “It’s more of a spiritual fix than it is a political one, in my opinion,” Robertson said. “Therefore, we can pray for our country, but the last thing we want to do is sit at home. We have to get rid of this politically correct crap and go back to Biblical correctness.”

“There is no downside to loving God and loving your neighbor, for crying out loud. … I wish we would just try keeping two of God’s laws: don’t murder and don’t steal. It’s two of the top 10. I wonder if we just kept those two, would life be better? What do you think?”
