“I’m a sinful man, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes,” Robertson tells the magazine. “People have a reason to hate me.
“If mankind treated a mistake-free man like Jesus so brutally, I don’t think I’m going to be able to escape trouble on Earth.”
But despite admitting to his “mistakes,” the Duck Dynasty star continues to defend himself and the words he spoke during an interview with GQ.
“All I did was quote a passage of scripture from antiquity,” he says. “They’re mad at me, but I’m really just quoting what God said, so He’s the one they have a problem with.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Robertson participated in an interview with GQ in which he described homosexuality as a sin.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine,” Robertson said. “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
But homosexuality isn’t the only topic the reality star has offended. Robertson also described his experience working on a Louisiana cotton farm during the 1960s as a time when “The blacks…were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
Now the duck caller is out to defend those words as well. He tells Us, “The point I was making was that even when our black brothers didn’t have their civil rights, those people had that one thing that government couldn’t take from them: their faith.”
