Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson Says He Believes 'What the Bible Says' About Gays Going to Hell — VIDEO

Robertson

In a new interview with CNN's Kyra Phillips, Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson discusses last December's controversy over Phil Robertson's GQ interview, in which he blasted homosexual sinners, and said they're going to hell like terrorists.

Asks Phillips: "Let's lay it out. He paraphrased First Corinthians where it talks about homosexuals, male prostitutes, drunkards, thieves, that they're all the same. Is that what you believe?"

Says Robertson: "I believe what the Bible says. And so that’s what he says to put those in. You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. God will ultimately decide that. We don't profess to be God and we certainly don't profess to be perfect because we have our own sins to deal with."

“And for him and for you, the Bible is literal, that’s how it is, right?” Phillips asked.

Replied Robertson: "That’s how it was said."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

In related news, Duck Dynasty ratings last week dropped to a 16-month low ahead of the season finale, according to THR:

Wednesday's Duck Dynasty averaged 4.7 million viewers, the first time in over a year that the series has fallen below the 5-million mark. The new low comes on the heels of a fatigued season for the A&E juggernaut. It returned to 8.5 million viewers in January -- steadily dropping ever since.

The softer fifth season, the first to air after star Phil Robertson's incendiary remarks about gay people and the Jim Crow South, is likely as much of a victim of gravity as it is of negative publicity. Duck Dynasty has been on a slow but steady decline since last summer, when it obliterated ratings records with 11.7 million viewers.

  3. As an extremely rich man, he most likely doesn't believe a word of the Bible, particularly parts about how hard it is to get into paradise for extremely rich men.

  6. We already know what these obtuse people think. No need to create a platform for ignorance and idiocy. Towleroad and other gay news outlets can do better than this.

  8. Sorry, while the bible does say some stuff...mostly old testament...and nothing directly attributable to anything Jesus said...it doesn't say ANYWHERE that gays are going to hell.

    Another Baptist Parrot repeating what some preacher told them, because you know why read the actual book.

  9. Yes, you CAN have a college education and still be really, REALLY dumb. I hope they end up with some gay kids.

  10. Just another clueless stone caster. Willie should finish reading the "Good Book". Then he would know that Jesus died for our past and future sin sand LITERALLY no one is going to Hell. Unfortunately, these Bible thumpers don't finish reading the book until they are well into their old age and about to die and don't get to relay that message.

  11. And I believe that, after he dies, he will be reincarnated as a bug. Who is to say which of us is right?

  13. 'Duck Dynasty's' rating are going into the toilet. This is nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt. I'm sick of our community being the tool soul-less business ventures and politicians use as their tools.

  14. Looks like he eats a great deal - gluttons go to hell also!!!!!!

  16. He is entitled to believe whatever he wants. That's the sad truth. News outlets need to stop bringing attention to it. A&E are the real d-bags here for continuing to pay this guy while spouting off about how inclusive they are. If one of your "stars" alienates a specific part of their fan base in such an offensive way, you stop paying them. Period.

  17. Translation: "We're last month's news.....LOOK AT US!!!"

  18. Uh huh.... After watching the video, It would appear to me that God has already given Phil a gay son.

    It's just so obvious.

    LOL!

    Posted by: AllBeefPatty | Mar 26, 2014 11:38:38 AM


  19. LOL. I can't help but laugh. I had never heard of these people before the GQ PR-stunt ("controversy" for the people who actually thought that whole thing wasn't planned and/or manipulated by A&E). I still don't care what any of them think.

  20. Using the Bible as a weapon in the continuing religious war against gay folks is such a tiresome and pathetic excuse for ignorance and hatred.

  21. And I believe that long-haired, camouflage wearing TV characters who use the American flag as sweat bands are going to hell. But neither his belief in old books, nor my made-up belief carries any weight in the real world.

  22. His 'god' is a worthless c**t.

    Luckily 'god' is a fictional character and belief in it is a mental illness.

  23. The bible also insists a guy put two of every animal on a big boat thus saving every species from drowning in a flood. You must have the intelligence if really stupid 4 year old to spout crap from that idiotic book.
