"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson has been SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY by A&E after a series of homophobic comments he made in a recent GQ interview.

A rep for A&E released a statement, saying, "We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty.'"

The rep added, "His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community."

A&E has suspended him indefinitely from the show. The rest of the "Duck Dynasty" family is expected to remain on the show.

As we reported, Phil told GQ about how a vagina is more desirable than a man's anus, and how homosexuality and bestiality are the same sin.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion but I think Phil just screwed himself. A&E will probably be forced to cancel the entire show.

So now you're a homophobe if you are a Christian with Christian beliefs? It's bullchit. Everyone screams "TOLERANCE!!!" Unless it has something to do with a Christian, a Catholic, or the Bible.

The show won't be cancelled over his gay remarks. Its more likely it could be cancelled because of his faith in Christ Jesus.

It's interesting how anti-gays are so obsessed with the mechanics of gay sex, like they really think about gay sex...a lot.

nothing but conditioning society to think one way...when you punish one group for thinking one way.its a scary thought really.if you are not down with gay you get fired...if you are down with it you get made into a hero.yup id say that is conditioning societies thinking.." hey look now if you share this opinion you will lose your job." something dictators would do to gain control.

A&e is going to get boycotted im a christian but im not a conventional christian i believe you live and let live and dont pass judgement on anyone no matter what cuz its nit our place but i do feel GQ set him up why would you ask anybody that question if you cant handle the answer and especially if you exploit it instead of just axing it out of the survey especially a christian redneck from Louisiana from an entirely different generation you cant expect him to be as open minded as our generation he was born almost 70 yrs ago he doesn't think like we do he was probably raised that way i think its unfai

Welcome to Fascist America. Freedom of speech is dead. Talking ill of the power elite will be punished. This is how Nazi Germany started. Is everyone going to sit by and just let it happen?
