Phil Robertson was a guest on "The Sean Hannity Show" on Tuesday and offered up his thoughts on how the terrorist group ISIS should be handled. Hannity opened the interview with the recent beheadings of two American journalists by ISIS before asking Robertson how he thinks we should deal with evil. According to the Inquisitr on Wednesday, Robertson believes that ISIS needs to be either converted or killed.

Robertson had a copy of the Bible with him during the interview and said that he never leaves home without it. Known for his controversial views based on the Bible, Robertson begins answering Hannity's question about evil with "Biblically speaking." He went on to say that the whole world is now under the control of the "evil one." Quoting scripture, he said that ISIS has been taken captive by Satan to do his will.

Posing his own question, Robertson asked why the Middle East continues to slaughter each other when Americans don't have a large presence there anymore. He says they "can't blame us," because we left Iraq. He answered his own question with all who hate me, referring to the Christian deity, love death.

Hannity countered Robertson's hypothesis with ISIS is at war with the United States, whether we like it or not. According to Hannity, they're not going to leave Americans alone or leave Israel alone. Robertson replied with "in this case, you either have to convert them or kill them." Robertson believes it would be next to impossible to convert them, but he's not giving up on that option.

The "Duck Dynasty" patriarch recently authored a new book titled "unPHILtered: The Way I See It" where 68-year-old Robertson shares his philosophy on life. Says Robertson, life can be summed up in five short words, "Love God, love your neighbor." Robertson doesn't hold back on how the Bible has shaped his views on life and is known for his sometimes off-the-wall and controversial comments.

Fox Nation outlines the entire interview on their website and, in closing, Hannity brings up the point that some people view Robertson as controversial, but he doesn't. Said Hannity, "I kind of see you as a minister. That is your calling. I see you coming from a religious point of view." Fans of Robertson agree with him on ISIS, saying that "They're either going to kill us, or convert us. We can only hope they 'convert'/change, or we'll have to kill them, or they kill us. Pretty simple really."
