R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is scheduled to appear today on CNN at 2 p.m. EST to discuss the recent controversy surrounding “Duck Dynasty” cast member Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality to GQ magazine.
This morning, Mohler posted an essay at his website — “You Have Been Warned—The ‘Duck Dynasty’ Controversy” — addressing the issue. In the essay, he questions Robertson’s wisdom in agreeing to an interview with GQ and notes that some of his comments were “rather rude and graphically anatomical.” But, “the fact remains that it is the moral judgment he asserted, not the manner of his assertion, that caused such an uproar,” writes Mohler.
He continues, “So the controversy over 'Duck Dynasty' sends a clear signal to anyone who has anything to risk in public life — say nothing about the sinfulness of homosexual acts or risk sure and certain destruction by the revolutionaries of the new morality. You have been warned.”
