A video of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson reviving his previous anti-gay remarks in his local church has leaked on the internet. In the video, the 68 year-old included homosexuals with other groups such as thieves and adulterers as hell-bound sinners.
Robertson is known for his homophobic views since his comments in January’s issue of GQ, where he told, “It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus”. Cable network A&E suspended Robertson after the comments were made, but were pressured by the public and reinstated him after just nine days.
Months after making the public apology after his initial hateful comments, Robertson made a speech in his local church, defending his remarks, telling the congregation, “They were mad at me…because instead of acknowledging their sin, like you had better do, they rail against me for giving ‘em their truth about their sin. Don’t decide yourselves. You want the verse? The news media didn’t even know it was a verse. They thought I was just mouthing off”.
The video appeared on RadarOnline yesterday, having previously been posted to YouTube by the Whites Ferry Road Church on April 21.
Duck Dynasty, the reality series featuring Robertson, along with his family and their wealthy duck call business, is set to air its sixth season on June 11. Watch the video of the homophobe’s rant in full below.
