WATCH: Phil Robertson Finally Addresses Controversial A&E Comments… It’s Awesome!

After a brief suspension from his hit A&E reality show ‘Duck Dynasty,’ Phil Robertson rejoined the family-oriented, proudly Christian cast. Still, divided public sentiment over Bible-based comments he made regarding homosexuality continued to surround any mention of the patriarch’s name.

The Louisiana businessman and preacher addressed the controversy while delivering a recent sermon. His candid response to critics has since gained widespread publicity among his fans and foes alike.

“They were mad at me,” he told the congregation. “You say, ‘Why’d they get mad at you?’ ‘Cause instead of acknowledging their sin – like you had better do – they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins.”

As in the interview that sparked the controversy, Robertson once again cited scripture backing up the Christian view that sexual perversion is one of many sins.

“Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” he passionately stated.

Though the congregation enthusiastically supported his message, Robertson acknowledged such a statement is a hard sell across much of America.

“The news media didn’t even know it was a verse,” he explained. “They thought I was just mouthing off. ‘Is homosexual behavior a sin?’ the guy asked me. I said, ‘Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived.’”

Robertson confessed that he has fallen victim to many of the sins named in the Bible – as has every person alive.

“We’ve all been there,” he noted. “The reason we’re here today is to remind us of the Gospel that’s preached.”

Instead of coming from a position of hate or intolerance, the Robertson clan has insisted they share their Christian beliefs in an effort to see more people come to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. As A&E found out through a concerted effort among the family’s supporters, a huge segment of the American population wants to see more of these values represented in the marketplace of ideas.

      Well said, Jaclyn, you speak the truth. I have been saying that since 2010, I knew something wasn't right about this lying clown. And I was amazed when so many stupid people were supporting him in 2012 election.

      Wait till Obama starts to take away private properties as soon as he disarm Americans, Obama is another Hilter, Obama has taken a page right out of Hitler's hand book.

      America needs to repent and start praying to God for God to remove this muslim enemy of America.
      May God have mercy on us
