For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
West Monroe, La. (CBS HOUSTON) – Phil Robertson, star of the popular “Duck Dynasty” television show, defended his controversial comments on homosexuality, giving a church sermon in which he ridiculed media coverage and others “blurring” the lines between “sinners” and homosexuals.
In a video of an Easter Sunday sermon at Whites Ferry Road Church in his hometown of West Monroe, La., that has gone viral, the “Duck Dynasty” star – who was suspended for making similar comments in a GQ interview last year – told the congregation that he refuses to back down on his beliefs.
Robertson called the media outrage absurd over his GQ interview comparing homosexuality to bestiality and various other “sinners.”
“They were mad at me,’ he tells 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. Don’t deceive yourselves.”
