Of the many things that Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson is highly qualified in, I bet you didn't know that he was an expert in sexually transmitted diseases?
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson painted sexually-transmitted diseases as being diametrically opposed to Christian beliefs in a recent sermon, CNS Newsreported.
“Biblically correct sex is safe,” Robertson said during a sermon in West Monroe, Louisiana last month. “It’s safe. You’re not going to get chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, AIDS — if you, if a man marries a woman, and neither of you have it, and you keep your sex between the two of you, you’re not going to get ever sexually transmitted diseases.”
Robertson went on to blame “orthodox liberal opinion” for the spread of “debilitating diseases” around the U.S. and the world and accused his audience of being — like himself — “sexually immoral” at some point in their lives.
“Man meets woman, marries her, keeps his sex right there,” he said. “The children come, the chances of them getting a sexually transmitted disease, would you say is almost zero? You can say it.”
OK, that's really off the wall. His definition of "Biblically correct" sex is obviously fueled by his disdain for gay marriage, but even if a man and a woman stay committed to a monogamous relationship there's still plenty of ways they could get STD's.
Now, if he said that both partners were virgins at the time that they met and were never, ever in a sexual situation before they got married, then there's a tremendous chance his hypotheses could pan out. But do remember to watch out for those stadium toilet bowls.
Oh, and by the way, everything in the world that the Robertsons feel is bad in the world is all because of those orthodox liberals.
