Transcript for Phil Robertson Releases New Book 'Un-PHILtered'
Now to Phil Robertson, the man behind the "Duck dynasty" clan is out with a new book "Unphiltered" that covered a lot of business, the controversy over the anti-gay comments that got him suspended from "Duck dynasty." We sat down with him to talk about it. Reporter: He's the outspoken patriarch of one of America's most famous families. Millions welcome him into their homes every week on "Duck dynasty." Phil Robertson is also 68 years old and not about to change who he is or what he says. Wow. I mean look at our culture, dude. You can look in any direction and go woe. Reporter: His comments have gotten him into trouble but Robertson isn't backing down in his aptly named book "Unphiltered." People will read it and decide for themselves but people need to get in their head, dude. I don't hate anybody. Reporter: He says the book is partially to clarify comments that got him into hot water. The comments were published in "Gq" magazine earlier cowing homosexual behavior a sin. The only place I know of that I could have gone to answer that question would be a bible. The dictionary wouldn't have explained it and an encyclopedia would have explained whether it was a sin or not so I went to the only source I had to answer this question. Reporter: Would you consider yourself a homophobe? I'm as much of a homophobe as Jesus was. People who participate in homosexual behavior need to know I love them. Reporter: Long before the beard he was a clean-cut college quarterback who gave up football when it interfered with duck hunting season. He says he was an alcoholic, a wom womanizer, until he found Jesus at the age of 28. That conversion changed his life strengthened his marriage to miss Kay and turned his hobby of making duck calls into a multimillion dollar business. I'm a highly educated man, maybe a sharker to some, I have a masters degree. I'm no dumbo. Reporter: His comments about growing up in pre-civil rights Arkansas rubbed some the wrong way and told "Gq" I never with my eyes saw the mistreatment of any black person not once." You say that but they couldn't go to the same school. They couldn't use the same water fountain. There is one race, one race on this planet. It's called the human race. We're all the same. To me there is absolutely nothing that as color to do with it. Reporter: There's a lot more in the book much of it religion. A lot said it's the gospel according to you. Well, it's the gospel according to the scriptures. I didn't dream it up. Reporter: Robertson also dedicates a chapter to money. I guess having money in the bank gives you a little piece of mind but it really hasn't changed our lifestyle much. Another chapter tackles what Robertson calls America's addiction to social media. I don't have a cell phone. I never turned on a computer in my life. So whatever America is saying or not saying about me true or untrue, what they need to understand is I'm not hearing it. Reporter: Like we said, don't expect Phil Robertson to change. For "Good morning America," Ryan Owens, ABC news, west Monroe, Louisiana.
