Phil Robertson Declares He Won’t Back Down

Good news on the Phil Robertson front: No apologies and no backing down.

It seems that every time some conservative or Christian stands for something publicly, he or she gets beaten down by the media. Inevitably, there’s an apology. Look, if you say something that’s true, there’s nothing to apologize for. Liberals have used the beat-down tactic for decades.

This time they got beat by a red neck from Louisiana who is one smart cookie. “‘We are a bunch of rednecks from Louisiana,” Robertson said, “but I am not uneducated, I have a degree from Louisiana Tech.” He’s no Honey Boo Boo, but that’s what A&E thought he was and the folks at GLAAD hoped he was when they went on their bullying rampage.

Here’s part of what he said in a prayer after a Bible study session at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana:

“I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions.”

If you want to win, you can’t back down. Define your position and stick with it.  We’re in this mess as a naion because too many people are afraid to stand up to the bullies.

I love the lyrics to Tom Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down.” Although it’s not about politics, it has a lot to say about, well, not backing down.

Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down

Gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won’t back down

Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground and I won’t back down
