'Duck Dynasty': Phil Robertson anti-gay sermon surfaces

A newly resurfaced video of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson preaching against homosexuality arrives at a very inconvenient time for A&E.

A 2010 sermon circulated online Friday in which he grouped gays with people full of "murder, envy, strife, hatred." It comes after A&E suspended Robertson Wednesday from cable's top-rated reality show after he made anti-gay comments in an interview with GQ. On Thursday, his family said they "cannot imagine" continuing the show without their patriarch.

The 2010 video emerges just as A&E is trying to find a middle ground that will allow the show to go on. On one side are social conservatives outraged at Robertson's suspension for expressing what he considers his religious-based belief that homosexuality is a sin. On the other are people who say religion is no excuse for bigotry.

"First they say,'There is no God. Get him out of your mind,'" Robertson says in the speech. "Then they bow down to birds, animals and reptiles, and each other. And the first thing you see coming out of them is gross sexual immorality. They will dishonor their bodies with one another, degrade each other. Uh, is that going on in the United States of America? Look around. God's not there ... And boy is there some immorality going on around here. Does it get worse?"

No they wouldn't because I wouldn't stand for their racism or their intolerance of other people(gays) in addition they are just to nasty for me to even think about eating at their table.
Not to worry, we'll just put a dish on the floor next to the dogs. They won't be happy but they'll git over it!

Duck Dynasty Star's 'Indefinite' Suspension Ends After Only Nine Days:

Well that was fast.

Turns out Phil Robertson, the patriarch of A&E's Duck Dynasty, who was suspended "indefintely" from the reality series on Dec. 18 after making anti-gay comments, won't have to miss one minute of filming for the series after all, the Hollywood Reporter writes.

The network announced Friday that Robertson will be part of the series again and his temporary suspension did not affect the upcoming fifth season.

"After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family," the network announced.

“Despite our celebration, we remain uncertain of A&E’s true intent. Today, in the network’s statement of their core values – centered on ‘creativity, inclusion, and mutual respect’– Faith Driven Consumers are left wondering whether A&E considers us to be a part of America’s rich rainbow of diversity. Do they also now embrace the biblically based values and world view held by the Robertson family and millions of Faith Driven Consumers?"

Their true intent is to make money... it really is that simple.
