A&E ‘Indefinitely’ Suspends Duck Dynasty Star for Comments About Homosexuality
Get in trouble for quoting the bible? This is bad. How did we get to this point?
Check it out:
On December 18th A&E suspended Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson “indefinitely” for comments he made regarding his views on homosexuality.
The comments came during an interview appearing in the January issue of GQ magazine.
According to the Chicago Tribune, A&E released the following statement in response: “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.”
Robertson’s comments consisted of recitation of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 from the Bible: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.” He added, “Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
