‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson Fired For Sharing Personal Views on Homosexuality

A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.

“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,” A&E said in a statement. “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.”

The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with the magazine. He’ll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped.

    isn’t it amazing how when God’s word is spoken, the truth is told, people are fired. according to God’s word and truth homosexuality is not just a sin but an abomination, something he (God) hates. so as a christian i will pray that all goes well with Mr. Robertson. and I’m not even a fan of the show.
