In a video from 2010, Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty reality show family, who was suspended from the show for anti-gay comments, goes on at length about his feelings about the ills of homosexuality.
“They’re full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, god haters, they are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless, they invent ways of doing evil,” he said.
Robertson added that the Bible states those who don't believe in God will "dishonor their bodies with one another, degrade each other," with "gross sexual immorality," he said. "Is that going on in the United States of America? Look around."
He even used the Bible to rail against people who don't think you should eat meat.
In a statement, his family said it cannot imagine the show going forward without him.
