Phil Robertson, one of the stars of A&E's hugely popular reality show Duck Dynasty, has come under fire after he suggested homosexuality was a sin during an interview with GQ magazine. After he complained that "everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong...sin becomes fine," the interviewer asked what Phil considered a sin. And oh boy the answer was unexpected.

"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there," he said, "...bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."

The remarks create a huge problem for A&E, given the show is cable's highest-rated reality show, and second-highest rated show overall after AMC's The Walking Dead.

The network sent out a follow-up statement from Robertson, which read, "I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and alsowhat the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. 

"However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other."

The network itself refused to comment.

In the GQ interview, Robertson had paraphrased Corinthians, saying, "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. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

"It seems to me, a vagina - as a man - would be more desirable than a man's anus," he said. "That's just me. I'm just thinking, 'There's more there! She's got more to offer.' I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."

"We never, ever judge someone on who's going to heaven, hell. That's the Almighty's job," he told the magazine. "We just love 'em, give 'em the good news about Jesus - whether they're homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort 'em out later, you see what I'm saying?"

Woah.
