Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has defended his homophobic views, claiming that he’s no more homophobic than Jesus was.
Speaking to ABC News, Robertson spoke about his challenges in coming to understand homosexuality:
“The only place I know of that I could have gone to answer that question would be the Bible.
The dictionary wouldn’t have explained it, an encyclopaedia wouldn’t have explained it, whether it was a sin or not, so I went to the only source I had.
I’m as much of a homophobe as Jesus was.”

Don’t worry though, apparently he loves gay people really:
“People participating in homosexual behaviour, they need to know that I love them.”
So there you have it. Phil Robertson loves gay people, but probably still thinks that it’s a sin - just like Jesus, apparently. Watch the interview below:
