New anti-gay remarks by 'Duck Dynasty' star emerge
WEST MONROE - A&E star Phil Dynasty reinforced his beliefs against homosexuality in a Easter sermon that was posted on the internet.
The network declined to comment on Robertson's new video reviving past anti-gay remarks.
His comments on homosexuality lasted a little more than a minute of his 45 minute speech at his church in West Monroe, Louisiana. Robertson compares homosexuals with other groups he believes are hell-bound sinners.
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? neither the sexual immoral, neither the idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, shall enter the kingdom of God. I told him the rest of the story," Robertson said during his sermon.
In December, Robertson made comments in a GQ article that linked homosexual behavior to bestiality. He also made racist statements.
A&E suspended him for nine days. Robertson issued an apology for last year's remarks.
During the Easter sermon, he made no racial comments.
He did blast the media and warn those who did not believe as he does they would see the wrath of God.
"The news media didn't even know it was a verse. They thought I was mouthing off," he said. "Instead of acknowledging their sins, like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins."
Recently, Governor Bobby Jindal presented the Robertson family with the Entrepreneurial Excellence award.
The governor backed Phil Robertson Thursday saying, "Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana and great friends. This is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views."
The video was posted Thursday by RadarOnline. It was posted to YouTube by the Whites Ferry Road Church on April 21.
"Duck Dynasty" is scheduled to begin its sixth season on June 11.
