The documentary filmmaker told Parade that his safety has been compromised because of his work.
Moore said: "Taking these positions has not made life easy for me and I've had to take a lot of abuse as a result of that, but I'm just me and I have to just say what I think is true, even if it's a bit ahead of where the people are at.
"I don't think we move the ball down the field if we play it safe and run with the pack. So I step out of the pack sometimes and create an unsafe situation for myself. I live with threats and things."
He added: "I keep hearing, 'Michael Moore is Godless and he hates America'. In reality, I've been nothing but somebody who loves this country, who still goes to mass, who's an Eagle Scout, who is married to the same person that I met when I was 17.
"I mean, I have such a conservative life. I'm really a conservative person, so I just try to kind of laugh at this Michael Moore character that [Rush] Limbaugh and Fox News create. But, after a while, you kind of go, 'Whoa, people are starting to believe this stuff'."
Earlier this month, Moore suggested that he may stop filming documentaries.
