As Western Journalism previously reported, ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson took a prominent role in a recent event coordinated to support Houston pastors targeted by that city’s leaders. The ‘I Stand Sunday’ program held earlier this month featured a number of prominent speakers and was held in front of thousands of attendees at Grace Community Church in Houston.
The Robertson family patriarch did not disappoint those accustomed to hearing his unequivocal defense of Christian values as he described the biblical values embraced by America’s founders.
“It cannot be said too strongly or too often,” Robertson asserted, “that this great nation was not founded by religionists, but by Christians.”

He reiterated to enthusiastic applause that the United States was founded “not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
For those who might doubt his claim, Robertson said at least one of the men responsible for establishing the nation agreed that Christian values were integral in the process of creating the unique experiment that became America.
“Patrick Henry, great orator, one of our founding fathers, said that,” he concluded.

The Louisiana businessman and pastor is no stranger to controversy regarding his deep-rooted faith in God and defense of traditional marriage. His comments regarding homosexuality led to a short-lived suspension from his popular A&E reality show; however, a massive response from fans across the nation prompted the network to reinstate the star posthaste.
Despite the backlash from those who disagree with his message, it is clear that Robertson is undeterred. He continues to speak out for what he believes is right and against the culture of political correctness he believes is stifling the free exchange of ideas.

Judging from the huge turnout at the recent event in Houston and the support he has received in general, Robertson’s plainspoken values obviously resonate with a large number of his fellow Americans.
