Phil Robertson, star of the A&E reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” demanded to know if Democrats and the media love Jesus.
Robertson, who has repeatedly denigrated gay people, complained about the “vitriol and the hatred” of others during last week’s Values Voters Summit, a Christian-based event that featured white nationalist Steve Bannon.
Robertson declared his love for mankind, and then demanded to know Democrats and the media love Jesus:
I’m almost tempted to ask the Democratic Party four little words: ‘Do y’all love Jesus? The reason I’m asking you, Democratic Party, is I’ve never heard you say one way or the other! Do you love Him? And I’m waiting on an answer.
Robertson demanded the same answer from CNN, CBS and MSNBC:
Do you folks love Jesus? Because I’ve never heard you say one way or another. Or maybe do you hate Him? Do you love Him or do you hate Him? I’ll unashamedly say I love Him. I’ll tell anybody that.
The final question I would like to ask everyone, including you, what’s wrong with Jesus? I’ve investigated Him. I’ve carefully inspected the man. I can’t find anything wrong with Him.
