Terry Bradshaw speaks out against Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertston's homophobic remarks

 

Terry Bradshaw and maligned Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson were once college football teammates at Louisiana Tech. So the two are very familiar with one another.

In light of Robertson's recent comments made about his stance on homosexuality, Bradshaw, a devout Christian in his own right, has told TMZ that he does not agree with what Robertson had to say.

The Hall of Fame quarterback said that Robertson is "taking the scripture literally" and neglecting the fact that "the Bible also preaches love."

"I respect Phil's voice but I don't agree with it," Bradshaw said.

Believe it or not, there was a time when Bradshaw rode the bench behind Robertson. But Robertson quit the sport during his senior year because he didn't want to miss out on the fun known as duck season. This is when Bradshaw got this chance to play and the rest is football history.

    1. Yep; Robertson would school him intellectually - just as he did playing the quarterback position.

  2. I love that neither of the previous nimrods has the balls to stand behind their ignorant opinions and publish their names. Figures. Punks.

  3. Takes the Bible literally, what other way is there?! Yes, it preaches love but it also says do not kill, etc. should that not be taken literally either? The bible tells us to love everyone. You can love a sinner but it doesn't change the fact that they are sinning.

    1. It also tells you not to eat shellfish or wear clothes made of two different fabrics.

    2. Funny how no one highlights the other sins Phil Robertson spoke of during that interview. Everyone is so afraid to offend the homosexual community that they needed to just focus on it and make it into something it wasn't.

      In the end, all sin causes God to turn away and Phil preaches that message. Why else would Jesus have to die but to cover us all from our sin? We are all sinners. My sin may be different, but the effect is the same as far as God is concerned.

      Another way to put it - as a parent I love my children. I provide for them, support them, help them and especially love them. But I also do not condone inappropriate behavior. Why? Because I love them I also correct them and hold them accountable for their actions. Why would God as a loving Father not do the same? That is what Phil Robertson was saying and others decided to sensationalize and exploit by taking his response out of context.
