Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson made waves last year when he had the “audacity” to call homosexual behavior “sin.”
His new book UnPHILtered was written, partially, in an effort to explain what his comments.
Which leads us to the interview he gave to Good Morning America recently…
Robertson: “People will read it and decide for themselves but people need to get in their head, dude. I don’t hate anybody.”
Reporter: He says the book is partially to clarify comments that got him into hot water. The comments were published in “Gq” magazine earlier calling homosexual behavior a sin.
Robertson: “The only place I know of that I could have gone to answer that question would be a bible. The dictionary wouldn’t have explained it and an encyclopedia would have explained whether it was a sin or not so I went to the only source I had to answer this question.”
Reporter: Would you consider yourself a homophobe?
Robertson: “I’m as much of a homophobe as Jesus was. People who participate in homosexual behavior need to know I love them.”
Phil’s response may not make liberals happy but he did his job. That was a great response.
