Duck Dynasty patriarch suspended for comments on homosexuality

A reality TV star has been taken off the air for his comments about homosexuality.
Phil Robertson is the family patriarch of "Duck Dynasty".
In an interview published in the January issue of GQ Magazine he compared homosexuality to bestiality.
Adding -- "whether they're homosexual, adulterers, drunks or terrorists -- they won't inherit the kingdom of God."

Matthew Belloni, Executive Editor, Hollywood reporter // "He was basing his comments.   On Biblical verse and these are views that a lot of people hold."

Mike Paul, Reputation Doctor // "But he also has a right to the consequences of those views.

In a statement after his suspension Robertson said -- "My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me."
Many of the show's fans are standing *behind* Robertson, boycotting "A & E" until Robertson returns to the show.
