Duck Dynasty Controversy Exposes Problem of Biblical Illiteracy

The Duck Dynasty controversy has exposed another problem in our society: Biblical illiteracy. Phil Robertson has been criticized expressing "bigoted" or "judgmental" opinions when in fact he was directly or indirectly quoting Scripture, and it is clear from his critics that they haven't a clue that that is what he was doing. This highlights yet another advantage of using the King James Version. At least when you quote Scripture from the KJV, people are clued in that it is a quote because it is in Elizabethan English.
