His controversial comments regarding homosexuality and racism continue to make headlines, and now Phil Robertson is breaking his silence.

During a Bible study group in West Monroe, Louisiana on Sunday (December 22), the "Duck Dynasty" star finally spoke up about the backlash he received since his GQ interview went public.

"We are a bunch of rednecks from Louisiana, but I am not uneducated," Mr. Robertson stated. "I have a degree from Louisiana Tech. But this week I have been called an ignoramus."

Phil continued, "This week I have been asked, 'Is this the first time you have brought up sin?' I said 'Are you kidding? I have been traveling to and fro spreading this message.' Then he said, 'Well do you invite yourself to go and get your Bible and tell people what you are now sharing with us?' I said, 'No they are inviting me.'"

"I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater. I will not give or back off my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions," he added.

“Sex and immorality goes ballistic. All the diseases that just so happen to follow sexual mischief… boy there are some microbes running around now. Sexual sins are numerous and many, I have a few myself. So what is your safest course of action? If you’re a man, find yourself a woman, marry them and keep your sex right there.”

Meanwhile, the 67-year-old reality star has yet to comment about the fate of his hit A&E reality show following the network suspending him from filming "indefinitely."
