Duck Dynasty’s Phil: ‘We Legislate Murder, That’s What Abortion Is’

Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson gave one of the sermons Sunday at his church, where he criticized political correctness for diminishing the reality of sin and said the “politically correct crowd” had killed 55 million babies by abortion, and that this was legislated “murder,” adding that now the government is “legislating perversion.”

In a Sept. 14 sermon focusing on how few people in the media, the universities, and in movies rarely ever talk about sin or even use the word “sin,” Phil Robertson, an elder at the White’s Ferry Road Church in West Monroe, La., quoted from Webster’s dictionary about political correctness and then emphasized that murder is a sin.

“Noah Webster’s heirs at least were not kind to political correctness,” said Robertson, in reference to the dictionary publisher’s intellectual descendants. “Political correctness is usually used disparagingly to connote dogmatism – this way or the highway, you either gonna’ agree with us, yeah, we’re hollering tolerance but we’re only tolerant of anyone who agrees with us. They connote dogmatism, the excessive sensitivity to minority causes. It just goes on and on.”

“But you know what?” he said. “That bunch, the politically correct crowd, have slaughtered 55 million fetuses in their mothers’ wombs. So what does our government do? We legislate murder. That’s what abortion is. Then we turn around, now we’re legislating perversion.”
