Speaking before the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans on Thursday, Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson offered one piece of advice for turning around the Republican Party: “Get Godly.”
Robertson’s speech centered around religion in politics, according to Politico. He referenced prayers written by John Adams and George Washington and the resolution passed by both houses of Congress in 1983 which designated that year as the national year of the Bible.
He said that the current version of the separation of church and state is a lie. He called the White House “evil and wicked” and “downright embarrassing.”
And the patriarch had one particular thing to say about who should lead our nation.
“You can’t be right for America if you’re wrong with God.”
Regardless of whether many agree with his advice, his comments on who should lead the nation echoed a sentiment shared by a large majority of Americans polled, who, by a margin of 95%-5% said they would not vote for an Atheist for president.
