Phil Robertson, the face of "Duck Dynasty," delivered a zinger of a prayer during a pre-race ceremony at Texas Motor Speedway.
His speech went something along the lines of, "All right Texas, we got here via Bibles and guns, I’m fixin’ to pray to the one who made that possible…
"…Help us dear God to understand that the men and women on my right are the U.S. military. On my right and on my left. Our faith in the U.S. military is the reason we are still here. I pray, Father, that we put a Jesus man in the White House."
This shouldn’t come as a surprise from a man like Robertson, who in all his wisdom, advocates men marrying teenage girls.
"Look, you wait 'til they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket," he says. "You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They'll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course."
Robertson also freely sounds off about gays and their "sinfulness."
"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.”
Oh, and what does he think of people who don’t believe in Jesus?
“All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I’ll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That’s 80 years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups.”
