Anti-gay Duck Dynasty star threatens to run for President to tackle ‘depravity’, gay marriage

Anti-gay Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has threatened to mount a Presidential bid to challenge “depravity”.

Robertson was suspended from his  A&E reality show for less than two weeks in 2013, when he ranted about men who prefer “a man’s anus” over a vagina.

The TV star, who claims that sexually transmitted infections are God’s punishment for gays, previously recorded an ad for Ted Cruz’ Presidential bid and rallied alongside him at events – though he has since backed Donald Trump.

But in a teleforum organised by My Faith Votes, the reality TV star said that he could run himself in 2020.

Speaking about secular politicians, he said: “You call it secularism, I just call it the Evil One, the Evil One that controls human beings.

“If you elect depraved souls, you’re going to get depravity. That’s just the way it works.

“If the ones you’re going to elect are going to attack religious liberty, free speech and not allow you to defend yourself, put Supreme Court judges on the bench that will violate your Biblical rights…- everything I do is through the Bible.

“Get married to someone to the opposite sex, keep your sex right there and you will never get a sexually transmitted disease. I would vote for someone who believes that.”

However, he suggested he might throw his own hat in the ring in future if there is not a “Godly” enough candidate in future.

He said: “If they keep fooling around long enough, they’re going to force me to run.

“If you want to see a change in America, get me in there, dude, and there will be a big change then, if y’all are ready for it.”
