Phil Robertson’s pastor says he doesn’t think the  “Duck Dynasty” patriarch wants to give up on the show that has suspended him for anti-gay remarks.

After his suspension last week, other members of the “Duck Dynasty” clan said they “cannot imagine” doing the show without him.

Assuming he’s brought back eventually, they won’t need to. Mike Kellett, pastor at the White’s Ferry Road  Church in West Monroe, La., said he doesn’t believe Robertson wants to leave the show.

“It’s just not going to dictate his faith,” Kellett said.

He added that Robertson’s beliefs haven’t changed since he became a reality star, and won’t change “after TV.”

“Faith and love for humanity has existed way before ‘Duck Dynasty’ ever came about,” Kellett said.

Robertson (above, left) wasn’t suspended for his faith and love for humanity, but rather for anti-gay remarks he made in an interview with GQ. He grouped gays with “drunks” and “terrorists” and opined: “a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus.”
Robertson led a Bible study class at the church Sunday, saying he wouldn’t back down from his beliefs, but that he was a lover, not a hater.
