Why aren't drunks offended by Phil Robertsons remarks

With all the feigned outrage by the gay lobby over what Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson said about homosexuals, they apparently missed that he included a whole list of people the Bible also speaks of living an immoral lifestyle.

Phil was paraphrasing 1 Corinthians 6:9 when he made his comments about homosexual behavior in an interview for GQ magazine, but he also included adulterers, idolaters, alcoholics, swindlers (which would include 95% of the politicians in Washington), slanderers and even greedy people.

But why are none of the others mentioned by Phil outraged over his remarks?

Read the humorous look at Robertson's comments below as you ponder exactly why it is only the gay lobby and of course liberal news reporters that are outraged by Phil Robertson's remarks.

From the outrageously funny The People's Cube:

Phil Robertson’s recent controversial comments have drawn criticism from a wide spectrum of offended minorities.

Most inflammatory in his remarks was this infamous passage: "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men…Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

First to weigh in was Patrick O’Malley of the Alliance of Alcoholics and Philanderers. “What is wrong with this man?” asked an astonished O’Malley between sips of whiskey. “Everybody knows this nation was built on alcohol and infidelity. I was hurt more by his comments than my wife when she found out about my 11th affair. I can’t help it if I was born adulterous, and along comes this bigot acting like it’s a choice and a wrong one at that. We have no place for judgmental people like that in today’s society.”

O’Malley’s sentiments were echoed on MSNBC by former president Bill Clinton, who said, “As a fellow Southerner, sportsman, and Christian, I am deeply disappointed by Phil’s hurtful rhetoric. There are serial rapists and adulterers out there who feel really marginalized by this kind of exclusive language. I’m here to tell them that I feel their pain.”

Speaking from the Senate floor this morning, Harry Reid commented, “I especially take offense at his comment that the greedy and the swindlers, and I quote, “won’t inherit the kingdom of God” end quote. Just what authority is he claiming here? One higher than the Senate of the United States? I urge my Republican colleagues to join me in a bipartisan effort to support a bill repealing I Corinthians 6:9 and assuring swindlers their place in Heaven.”
