Oh dear. Paradigm of conservative cultural authenticity, Phil Robertson, patriarch of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” conjured up a gruesome fantasy of the rape and torture of an atheist family in a speech to the Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast, later broadcast on the “Trunews” radio program by host Rick Wiles. Robertson can’t imagine how billions of humans have managed to reckon morality without his particular moral framework, but here’s what he can imagine:
I’ll make a bet with you. Two guys break into an atheist’s home. 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.
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?
Concerned that rape didn’t get the point across, Robertson imagines cutting off the atheist’s penis.
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 [there] 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.
The reality television star has come under criticism in the past for anti-gay comments, and then conservatives took the opportunity to be outraged about the outrage, on behalf of the Real America. Wash, rinse, repeat.
