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.”

Robertson’s volume increased as he paraphrased the Corinthians verse of Biblical “sinners.”

“Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” exclaimed Roberts, to a clapping audience.

“The news media didn’t even know it was a verse! They thought I was just mouthing off. ‘Is homosexual behavior a sin?’ The guy asked me. I said, ‘Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived.’

“That list of sins covered me in my past life,” continued Robertson. “We’ve all been there. The reason we’re here today is to remind us of the gospel that’s preached.”
