As the Duck Dynasty family was warning it might pull out of the show after patriarch Phil Robertson was suspended from anti-gay remarks in GQ, videos of him preaching similar thoughts at a Pottstown church have surfaced.

In the 2010 videos, Robertson was preaching at a Wild Game dinner at the Berean Bible Church. During the roughly hour-long talk, he weighed in on the immorality of gays, indicating they are experiencing God’s wrath. He also spoke on a range of issues, including his famed duck calls, Terry Bradshaw as his backup quarterback in college, and that he doesn’t believe in evolution.

No one at the Berean Bible Church, which was preparing for its Nativity Scene, was available to comment this morning. The videos were recorded before the Duck Dynasty show began airing.

Meanwhile, it was unclear if the show will continue on A&E.

A 22-year-old man has been charged with torturing three elderly women in an act of “rage” against the Mennonite faith Friday at a Clay Township home, police said.

Dereck Taylor Holt allegedly used a stun gun-like device on the women, ages 84 to 90, and punched them, according to Northern Lancaster County Regional police. He then bound their hands and feet with tape, covered their faces and ransacked the house, investigators said.

Investigators allege Holt terrorized the women for at least two hours, during which time he indicated he previously had been a member of the Mennonite community and has anger for its members since he left the faith, officials said.

During the assault, he read various Bible passages and then vandalized the women’s Bible, police said.

Christmas Nativity Cedarville United Methodist Church — Pottstown, PA

We’re all familiar with the songs of the Season . . . “Away in the Manger”, “O Little Town of Bethlehem” or “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”, to name a few, but is Christ’s story alive to your family and a part of your Holiday celebrations?

On December 16th from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., as a gift to the community, we invite you and your family to join us, free of charge, under the blanket of the night sky for a journey back in time.  You will walk, outside, with a Shepherd Guide, following the star of Bethlehem and visiting six live, walk-thru, scenes and hear the story of Jesus’ birth, as narrated by your Shepherd Guide.

You will visit the manger–see the live animals; hear how the angels and shepherds joyously spread the word about Jesus’ birth;  see the delight of the Wise Men presenting their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh; share in the joy of the Christmas Story and complete your journey with some artistic scripture displays from the Bible.

Finally, the Family Life Center will be filled with familiar sounds of the Christmas music we all love and enjoy, complimentary hot chocolate and cookies; free craft activities for the children and an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas with your friends and family.

The Live Nativity will be from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 16, 2012 at Cedarville UMC, 1092 Laurelwood Road, Pottstown, PA.  This is an outside, walking, event, so please dress accordingly.  Please note that this walking tour is made handicapped accessible via the use of golf cart.  The event and parking are free.  For directions or more information you may go to our website at www.cedarvilleumc.org or call the church office at 610-326-4173.
