Phil Robertson: Sermon Video From 2010 Shows Anti-Gay Views Aren't News

by at .

Additional evidence of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson's anti-gay views has surfaced in the wake of his controversial GQ interview and suspension by A&E.

Video of a sermon given by Phil at Pennsylvania's Berean Bible Church's Wild Game Supper in 2010 shows Robertson as fired up as ever on the topic.

The Duck Commander founder can be seen dressed in camouflage, literally thumping a Bible, talking about sexual deviants and the lack of morality in America.

"First they say, 'There is no God. Get him out of your mind,'" he says in the sermon. "Then they bow down to birds, 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."

"Uh, is that going on in the United States of America? Look around. God's not there... And boy is there some immorality going on around here. Does it get worse?"

"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'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. That's what you have 235 years, roughly, after your forefathers founded the country. So what are you gonna do Pennsylvania?"

"Just run with them? You're doing to die. Don't forget that."

The above video definitely fits the portrait painted by GQ, and raises the question of whether A&E is being dishonest for condemning Phil now.

He's certainly unfiltered, and has been long before Duck Dynasty was the highest rated show in cable history. Did they expect anything less from him?

Then again, as essentially an employee of their network, his crude comments to GQ are surely looked at differently than those from a 2010 sermon.

In GQ, Phil said homosexuality is a sin and likened it to bestiality. Still, he insists that as a Christian he does not judge, nor would he incite hatred.

“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell," he said. "That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus."

"Whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists," Robertson went on, he said, "We'll let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

After public outcry over the interview, A&E suspended Robertson indefinitely from the reality series due to his comments about the LGBT community.

The controversy has led to many people, from celebrities to regular people, choosing sides and taking to social media to support or lash out at Robertson.

In response to the controversy, the Robertson family issued a statement, essentially saying the show won't go on without patriarch Phil at the helm.

Should Phil have been suspended for his comments?
