"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson is under fire after delivering a graphic anti-atheist speech at a religious event in Vero Beach, Florida.
According to Huffington Post Canada, Robertson, the featured speaker at Friday's Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast, described a hypothetical scenario in which robbers force an atheist man to watch as his family members are raped and killed.
"And then [the criminals] can look at him and say, 'Isn't it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn't it great that there's nothing wrong with this? There's no right or wrong, now is it, dude?'" Robertson said.
The speech continued with more graphic details. The Huffington Post linked to supposed audio from the speech provided by RightWingWatch.org. (NOTE: Link contains language that some users may find offensive.)
