“Duck Dynasty” patriarch suspended for anti-gay comments
Suspended “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson said at a Bible study class at his church over the weekend that he won’t back down from his anti-gay views, but that he is a lover, not a hater.
Robertson allowed a Daily Mail reporter to attend the class, and the paper quoted him saying,”I will not give or back off from my path.” He said he was quoting from the Bible and that Jesus could save gay people.
“I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater,” he added, according to the paper.
“He is always like that,” she said. “That’s not a new message.”
Mike Kellett, senior pastor of the West Monroe, La., church, White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ, said he did not attend the class but also confirmed the message.
