On Wednesday night, embattled Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson spent the evening at church praying for a woman in his community with cancer. Pastor Mike Kellett of White Ferry’s Road Church said that Robertson specifically came to help the cancer-ridden fellow Christian, and didn’t say anything about his suspension from the show by A&E.
Kellett stated, “Phil led us in prayer. There were greater things on our minds than the firestorm of controversy about this article.” Kellett explained that Robertson was “very calm, and very confident that if he serves the Lord, God will take care of everything.”
“Phil is doing his best to follow God’s word,” Kellett said. “He always treats people with love and respect.” He added, “Television shows come and go. His faith is forever…He has literally helped bring hundreds of people to the Lord.”
Kellett agreed with Robertson’s general comments on homosexuality, explaining, “I think it’s unfortunate that when you quote the Bible people get upset about one particular sin that always seems to get a lot of attention. But sometimes the Bible is going to rub folks the wrong way.”
