Phil Robertson: I Have Sinned Sexually Myself, But ...

by at .  Updated at . Comments

More quotes attributed to embattled Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson have emerged from his church Bible study group on Sunday, and they're interesting.

As we reported earlier, Phil doubled down on the anti-gay comments that got him suspended from the A&E show, insisting his remarks are rooted in the Bible.

Not that he thinks he's perfect, however. Phil says he is not without sexual sin, but has put it in check ... and finds the solution to be pretty straightforward.

"Sexual sins are numerous and many. I have a few myself," he said. "If you're a man, find yourself a woman, marry them and keep your sex right there."

Phil and Kay Robertson have been married 49 years. Their eldest of four sons, Alan, is a pastor who joked about the scandal in church Sunday (below).

This is no laughing matter to Phil, though, nor is it likely to lead to an apology.

“I will not give or back off from my path, because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions,” Robertson said.

"The acts of the sinful nature are obvious. Sexual immorality is No. 1 on the list."

"Jesus will take sins away, if you’re a homosexual," he went on, adding:

“Jesus Christ was the most perfect being to ever walk this planet and he was persecuted and nailed to the cross, so don’t be surprised when we get a little static."

"How many ways can we sin sexually? My goodness. You open up that can of worms, and people will be mad at you over it. I am just reading what was written over 2,000 years ago."

"Those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom. All I did was quote from the scriptures. But they just didn’t know it. Whether I said it, or they read it, what’s the difference?"

"The sins are the same. Humans haven’t changed."

Phil gave the Daily Mail (UK) access to the study group, so these quotes are real - and just as unfiltered and unabashed as his infamous remarks to GQ.

"Common sense says we are not going to procreate the human race unless we have a man and a woman," he continued in his remarks about sexual sin.

"If you're a homosexual, He'll take it away.  If you're an adulterer, if you're a liar, what's the difference? If you break one sin you may as well break them all."

"If we lose our morality, we will lose our country. It will happen."

As for A&E suspending Robertson, he responded, indirectly, "This week I have been asked, 'Is this the first time you have brought up sin?' Are you kidding?"

"I have been traveling to and fro spreading this message."

A 2010 video (above) of Phil preaching certainly makes that point clear, and raises the valid point that A&E had to know what it was getting with him.

Phil also railed against his critics, saying, "We may be a bunch of rednecks from Louisiana, but I am not uneducated. I have a degree from Louisiana Tech."

Bottom line: A&E suspended Phil Robertson, patriarch of the wildly successful Duck Dynasty, indefinitely, because his remarks were offensive to gays.

Will the show go on? Likely not without Phil, at least on A&E.

The family has implied as much, in voicing opposition to his "hiatus," though it's unclear what the nature of his suspension is from A&E's standpoint.

Robertson is still on the network day in and day out on repeats, and there are no plans to remove him from new episodes that have yet to air in 2014.

It remains to be seen if A&E has any plans to cut ties with the Robertsons or vice versa, but these quotes won't necessarily help them smooth it over.

Should Phil apologize for his anti-gay comments?

He's sharing only what's in The Bible. If someone doesn't like it, they need to take it up with the Author, and not with the messengers.

This man is so full of hate. Gay people are not sinners. They are, most of the time victims. They aren't gay because they choose to do so, they are gay because they were born that way. Plain and simple. Gay people are humans and can be kind, humble, generous and caring. They have relationships that last a lifetime. They adopt children that are very much loved and taken care of.
His comments are full of hate. Sometimes I wish a gay son or daughter upon intolerant people. Once they see the pain and suffering they cause maybe they will begin to understand.

I'm not a religious person but from what I've gathered over the years, God is perfect; Jesus...eh, not so perfect. Jesus' entire life isn't covered in the Bible so just because his father had him die for other's sins doesn't mean the man didn't sin during his life. Jesus was human - humans aren't perfect. And let's not forget that man wrote the Bible so who says everything in it is the truth? I quit going to church because no one would answer my questions about the things in the Bible that just don't make sense. I was just told to believe what I read. Sorry, I don't do that.

Dear Phil: My friend, you are too good for America, and they dont deserve you. Jesus was crucified for telling the pharacies how it was, and they had a parade for him on Palm Sunday where he was everyone's hero, then the next week the mean demons had turned against him and he was crucified. Don't you know that the US is so evil and demon possessed that the Christians cant win, and it is a miracle that your God given show of good taste has made it this far, over Kardashian porn shows, Charlie Sheens insane slut shows, Mileys thong tweeking pelvis rotating shows. I mean what are you thinking of with these shows from Hell competing against yours. Anyway, we love you dearly Phil, but you will just have to learn that you cant say anything about the gays, because there are too many of them and too high up and they squeal and bitch over everything they think is an injustice to them, but they dont mind doing an injustice to you or anyone else. That is how it is my friend. Good luck and I am yelling for you over the Pinhead Hell Shows out there.

I'm not gay, but I'm not a Christian. For that reason I am not obsessed with homosexuality. I am neutral about it. People who are obsessed with it seem to me to have some very serious unresolved issues of their own. It's a pity they feel compelled to project their toxic inner world on others.

Why bringing up Miley Cirus to the debate? She is completely out of line and don't see why you think that gay people and/or liberals support her.
This is about a much deeper issue. It's about teenagers killing themselves because they are hated, bullied and discriminated against people like you. How would you feel if you son was gay and you were on the other side?

Hello everyone my name is Artem. I live in Ukraine. Everyone probably has (or had) a favorite thing, which is not a pity to devote their free time.
Someone is a collection of stamps, someone engaged in photography, someone who likes to cook, knit, draw, ... and so on, can not list everything.
One of my favorite of affairs, or more simply a hobby, are the wooden ships with their own hands.
Of course, the hobby is not very cheap, but when you consider that the making of a ship takes a year or even more.
I hope you liked my Hobie and you'll help.
