Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has finally broken his silence over his controversial interview with GQ magazine.
Phil led a small Bible study group in his hometown church in West Monroe, Louisiana on Sunday, and according to Britain's Daily Mail he defended his anti-gay remarks, saying he was simply quoting from the Bible. He said, "I will not give or back off from my path. 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.'"
Phil added, "I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater."
Following the GQ interview, the duck hunter has been suspended "indefinitely" from the hit A&E show. His family has said they won't continue the series without their patriarch.
