Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” was at church with a group praying for a woman who had been diagnosed with cancer following his suspension from the hit TV show, the pastor at White’s Ferry Road Church told TMZ.
However, he wasn’t praying for himself or his family’s TV show. In fact, he didn’t even mention the “hiatus” because it was all about the woman with cancer, Pastor Mike Kellett told the website.
“Phil is doing his best to follow God’s word. He always treats people with love and respect,” the pastor reportedly responded when asked by TMZ if Robertson is a “homophobe.”
Kellett also made it clear that he stands behind the “Duck Dynasty” star and his faith.
“Television shows come and go. His faith is forever,” the pastor added.
As TheBlaze reported on Thursday, Robertson has received both criticism and an outpouring of support over his comments on homosexuality.
