Phil Robertson's son, Alan Robertson, recently spoke in defense of his famous family at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C.
You will recall, Phil Robertson came under heavy criticism last year when he told GQ magazine:
Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.
As noted by The Atlantic, Robertson also made this comment about black people living under Jim Crow laws in the south:
I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people.’ Not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly, they were happy, no one was singing the blues.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Alan claimed at the Values Voter Summit that the backlash against his family was a plot by “the evil one who tried to derail that message, but he's not powerful than the one that we serve" (video below).
Alan also called on the country to "return to godliness" and a "return to how our country was founded."
He then added: “We’re talking about undergoing that change and trying to help other people see that because now you realize we’ve got generations of people in our nation that really don’t understand godliness at any level, they don’t know,” added Alan.
Finally, Alan concluded by saying that, “I pray for even our American brothers and sisters who aren’t there yet, I pray for them, because I want our nation to rise up and be great again.”
