Rev. Jackson’s negative and accusing remarks about Phil Robertson being a racist highly disappoints me. I read the following article and do not feel that Phil’s statement was racist at all. When Jesus was at the temple court the teachers of the law and pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. As they were prepared to stone her Jesus defended her and with compassion said:
John 8:7 – 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
What does Rev. Jackson hope to gain from causing more dissension? We here at “The 7th Day Return Of The Lord” defend Phil Robertson along with remaining 90% of of Americans that realize he is a true man of G-d and deserves his right to freedom of speech. Adding fuel to the fire is only going to upset a lot more Americans thus, the evil one continues to tear up the house of G-d and believers everywhere.

Jeff: Mr. extortion race batter Rev. Jackson who profits from division . In the credibility department I stand with Phil and the ducks
If the Robertsons were racists, Willie Robertson (Phil’s son) wouldn’t have adopted a child of another color for Phil loves that grandchild as much as he does the others. If you ask me, Rev. Jackson is loosing site of how we are to conduct ourselves as Christians. You not suppose to hunt for issues Rev but to promote peace and justice living as G-d would have us live. Just because Phil made a statement about what the Bible says about homosexuality, you’ve decided to accuse him of racism. Phil is looking more like the every minute!
John 10: 7-10 7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
And now the article:
Rev. Jackson: Phil Robertson ‘More Offensive’ Than Rosa Parks Bus Driver
Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans.
In an interview with Drew Magary, the “Duck Dynasty” star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin.
A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel’s CEO, to discuss the future of all “Duck Dynasty” memorabilia or content.
“These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago,” Jackson said in a statement obtained by ABC News.
“At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.'”
The release, dated Dec. 23, requests a meeting within 72 hours with A&E and Cracker Barrel execs and urges the network to uphold Robertson’s suspension.
Jackson and GLAAD said they believe it’s not right for a personality with such a large platform to benefit from such comments.
On Sunday, Robertson defended his comments about gays and blacks to a small Bible study group in West Monroe, La.
“I will not give or back off from my path,” he reportedly said Sunday.
Robertson added that his GQ comments were quotes from the Bible. “I didn’t think much of it at all, but it seems a lot of other people did,” he said.
