Phil Robertson's comments are usually controversial, and Friday's were no exception. The "Duck Dynasty" dad was the keynote speaker at the Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast in Florida, where the faithful paid up to $100 a plate to hear him speak. Photos of the event show hundreds in attendance.
And speak he did.
Robertson, who claims HIV/AIDS is God's punishment, revealed his extreme ignorance of atheism and pushed his chosen religious belief that right and wrong are Judeo-Christian concepts that atheists neither adhere to nor understand.
To do so, Robertson told a disturbing and hopefully hypothetical tale of a family of atheists who were victims of violence.
“Two guys break into an atheist’s home," Robertson's gruesome tale begins. "He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him. And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot them and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And then they can look at him and say, ‘Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’”
“Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if this [sic] was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day.’”
“If it happened to them,” Robertson concluded, “they probably would say, ‘something about this just ain’t right.”
One local news report states that Robertson was "well-received."
