“Duck Dynasty” star’s Phil Robertson hasn’t exactly hidden his biblical views on homosexuality, preaching the act was sin in a public setting that was videotaped in 2010 — years before A&E even picked up the family for the show.
In 2010, Mr. Robertson set forth his views on gays, as seen from the Bible, in a sermon at Berean Bible Church in Pennsylvania: “First they say there is no God. Get Him out of your mind. Then they say bow down to bird, 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. Is that going on in the United States of America? Look around. … Boy is there some immorality going on around here,” TMZ first reported.
Then he cited Romans 1:26, Breitbart.com reported.
“Therefore because they do not make it worthwhile to maintain the balance with God, He gave them over to shameful lusts. Women exchanged natural relations and were inflamed with lust for one another. And the men were inflamed with lust for each other. Women with women, men with men. They committed indecent acts with one another, and they received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions. They were full of murder, envy, strife and hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless. They invent ways to do evil.”
Mr. Robertson then concluded by suggesting that those who did not abide God’s will were “going to die” in the biblical sense, Breitbart reported.
