“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson said that same-sex marriage was "wicked" and "sinful" during a speech in Iowa City, Iowa, for Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas on Jan. 31 (video below).
“It is evil, it’s wicked, it’s sinful and they want us to swallow it,” Robertson shouted, notes RightWingWatch.org.
“We have to run this bunch out of Washington D.C.,” Robertson added. “We have to rid the earth of them. Get them out of there.”
The U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in 2015, but there is no legal way to "rid the earth of them" as the justices are in their positions for life or until they retire.
"Ted Cruz loves God, he loves James Madison and he's a strict constitutionalist," Robertson said. "You know what Ted Cruz understands? He understands the same thing that Zach just got through talking about. God raises these empires up. It is God who brings them down."
According to CNN, Cruz took the stage after Robertson and said, "How about Phil Robertson? What an extraordinary human being. I mean listen, God makes every one of us unique, but some are uniquer than others."
"What a voice Phil has to speak out for the love of Jesus," Cruz added. "What a joyful, cheerful, unapologetic voice of truth Phil Robertson is."
