The amazing thing ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson did after suspension

Phil Robertson is 67 years old, he’s well known, he has a pile of money, his family is behind him and he’s a devoted Christian. If A&E execs think they’re going to yank this guy around like a puppet and silence him, they have another think coming. In fact, he wasn’t sweating it after his “indefinite suspension,” he was thinking about how to serve other people.

Phil Robertson turned to the Lord after getting benched from “Duck Dynasty.”

The pastor at White’s Ferry Road Church tells TMZ … while everyone went crazy last night over Phil’s suspension, Phil was in the pews with his prayer group, praying for a woman who had been diagnosed with cancer.

Pastor Mike Kellett tells us … Robertson didn’t even MENTION the TV show or the suspension – it was all about the sick woman.

Pastor Mike dodged our question — whether Phil’s a homophobe — saying, “Phil is doing his best to follow God’s word. He always treats people with love and respect.”

I don’t want to put Phil Robertson up on a pedestal because we’re all humans and we all have our flaws and weaknesses — him included. But, it’s inspiring to see the way he’s behaving and it gives me a little more hope for the Christian church in our country, which has grown far too soft, timid and unwilling to rock the boat. One Phil Robertson who’s willing to tell the truth and suffer the consequences for it is worth 1,000 lukewarm Christians who are more concerned about offending anyone than they are about standing up for the faith.

Keep doing what you do, Phil. We got your back!
