Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson has again aired his homophobic views that saw him temporarily suspended from the show in an Easter sermon that was posted online on 20 April.
The video was posted by Robertson’s Whites Ferry Road Church so it seems he wanted people to see it.
In it he compares gay people to thieves, drunkards and swindlers and complains about how he was treated over his former comments.
‘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,’ Robertson says in the video
‘Don’t deceive yourselves. You want the verse? The news media didn’t even know it was a verse. They thought I was just mouthing off.’
Robertson then went forward to double down on his previous comments about gay people saying, ‘Is homosexual behavior a sin?’
‘Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, neither the idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, not slanderers, not swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.’
Robertson’s A&E network temporarily suspended him from his show after his last comments, but they are yet to respond to these more recent comments.
