“Duck Dynasty” viewers favorite Reality show on A&E, have disappointment on the horizon. Much loved patriarch, Phil Robertson, will be cut from future shows. Instead of firing him, A&E put him on an indefinite hiatus. The decision stemmed from comments that Phil made in a GQ interview.
Everyone knows that Phil and his family are religious. In this interview, he was asked what constituted sinful behavior. Phil answered, "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
This isn’t the first time that Phil shared his thoughts on the gay community. In 2010, Phil did a 45 minute YouTube video where he addressed a Wild Game Supper supper at Berean Bible Church in Pottstown, Pa. His talk contained, “They will dishonor their bodies with one another, degrade each other," continues Robertson. “ Is that going on in the United States of America? Look around. ... Boy, is there some immorality going on around here.” And they received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion," he added. "They're full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant God haters. They are heartless. They are faithless. They are senseless. They are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil."
A&E released a statement, “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."
According to the Los Angeles Times, Phil will be on the upcoming Season 5 episodes of "Duck Dynasty" because the filming is already completed.
