Phil Robertson Addresses Anti-Gay Controversy at Bible Study on Sunday in West Monroe

At church on Sunday, Phil Robertson spoke in response to his recent anti-gay comments he made in an interview with GQ Magazine. Simply put, he said, “I’m not a hater.”

Britain’s Daily Mail said they were invited to the bible study group in West Monroe. The newspaper quotes him as saying during the session, “I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater.”

The 67-year-old patriach of the Duck Dynasty family told the others in the group, “We are a bunch of rednecks from Louisiana, but I am not uneducated, I have a degree from Louisiana Tech. But this week I have been called an ignoramus. This week I have been asked, ‘Is this the first time you have brought up sin?’ I said, ‘Are you kidding? I have been traveling to and fro spreading this message.’”

He continued on by saying, “Then he said, ‘Well do you invite yourself to go and get your Bible and tell people what you are now sharing with us?’ I said, ‘No they are inviting me.’”

At the end of the group session, Robertson led everyone in prayer, stating in part, “I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions.”

This saga seems to be far from over. As you may recall, on Thursday, Phil Robertson was suspended by A&E from his family’s hit TV show Duck Dynasty. And on Friday, the Robertson family released a statement that they would not continue the show without the family’s patriarch as part of it.
