The Robertsons are not of our stripe of believer, but one thing that can be said is that they are not ashamed to say what they believe. Way too many doctrinally correct Christians sit back and say nothing because that's not what we're (supposedly) supposed to do.
I don't feel in the least bit sorry for the Robertsons. They aren't hurt by this at all. It's not even an issue of them being hurt. It's an issue of free speech and tolerance. Christians have the same guarantee under the Constitution to speak their beliefs...but in this PC time in which we live, Christians are the only group of which "tolerance" is demanded. Christianity is not to be tolerated in any way, shape, or form....even if those Christians have long hair, sloppy beards, and make wine (don't get me wrong - I don't agree in any with with their hair or the wine. I think that further weakens Christianity because it makes those kinds of things acceptable to people).
I don't believe this is a publicity stunt because the interview was done by GQ (I have to laugh at the thought of the "gentlemen" who read that magazine even being interested in the Robertsons. ). It is quite feasible, though, that A&E is trying to use this to get more publicity. However, many of their advertisers are coming down on the side of the Roberstons, so if it's a publicity stunt, it is likely, as Seth said, to backfire. I realize that Beck is a Mormon, and so not a Christian, but his offer to them was based on the fact that Phil's right to free speech is being stifled, which is commendable of him, unscriptural beliefs or not.
The thing that too many good Christians don't realize is that it is our freedom of speech that is on the line also. Yes, I know it is inevitable that we will lose the freedom we have now to witness for Christ. But we oughtn't sit back and just let it happen, KWIM? As I said, I don't believe they are even close to being doctrinally correct. But kudos to him for standing by what scripture says and not being afraid to let the world know that bestiality, homosexuality, and fornication is sin and sinners are headed to Hell. And this isn't a new stance with him. He is on the record as saying the same thing in 2010.
