Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Phil Robertson Says He Doesn’t Need Medical Insurance

We have been given — contrary to what Kamala Harris said — she says, ‘Elect me and everything’s free!’ Look! Everybody can have their own health care, the government is going to finance the whole thing! It’s not going to cost but $30 trillion. I’m offering you the greatest deal you ever had. Elect me and everything will be free!

What I’m saying is that, Kamala, I already have health care. It’s given to me by God. Eternal health care. I’m guaranteed to be raised from the dead. I have life and immortality given to me by God through Jesus.

(“People get sick on Earth,” Cavuto pointed out.)

The temporary reprieve is not worth it. I’m telling her, I have eternal health care and it’s free.


(The “Duck Commander” went on to insist that President Donald Trump never lies.)

A man that talks a lot like the president of the United States, he’s going to make some mistakes. I’m just saying the news media, according to Jesus, the evil one is the father of murder — that kind of fills in the blanks on why we’re such a murderous nation all the way down to killing our sons and daughters in our mothers’ wombs. And he’s the father of lies. I’ve never seen the extent of this kind of lying coming out of the news media. I’ve never seen anything like it since I’ve been on the Earth.

(“But you don’t see it out of the president?” Cavuto pressed.)

I would say Donald Trump is not a liar. [And Bruce says, Phil Robertson has dementia.]

Want to hear more nonsense from Fundamentalist Phil Robertson? Watch the video, but make sure you have a barf bag handy. Trust me, you’ll need it.

    I’m not particularly a fan of Harris lately; there are better contenders in the pool of Dems, I think. But I AM a fan of Medicare For All.

    California, where my best friend and I both live, has one of the better Obamacare setups, called Covered California. It was set up early, the state advertised the heck out of it, and it covers lots of people. But it’s still insurance. My friend gets her subsidized insurance through CC, and pays very little for insurance that covers a lot…but she has to find providers that will take it. I get my insurance through my husband’s work, from the same company. But my entire health care group , which is large and extensive, is closed to my friend because they don’t accept her plan. Her favorite orthopedics group just stopped taking her plan. She’s had trouble finding specialist providers who accept her insurance. Meanwhile, I can go just about anywhere and be seen by just about anybody.

    Meanwhile, I have relatives and friends in anti-Obamacare states who are still living without insurance or paying outrageous premiums for bad insurance. We need to fix this. People like Robertson don’t give a flying you-know-what about people who need health care, because he’s got his and anyone can get his by simply sharing his religious beliefs and signing on to Team Jesus. The idea that Jesus healed the sick in this life, so maybe as a society we should, too, is completely lost on these people.

    Given the number of Christians who die from cancer and other health-related issues, I would say Jesus has a terrible record as a health care provider. (I guess a zealot like Robertson would say they aren’t real Christians or it’s God’s will or some nonsense).

    The travel writer, Rick Steves, wrote a blog post about some friends in Switzerland who were just baffled that so many people in the US like to claim that the United States is a Christian country and yet they support laws that are opposite of what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. And then there was this Southern Baptist preacher who said during the last election that if Jesus were running for office on a Sermon on the Mount platform in the election that he could not vote for the guy who this asshat says is his Lord and Saviour. No wonder young people are leaving the church in droves. Some of us old folks are too.
