Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has defended the anti-gay comments made by his father Phil Robertson.

In an interview with CNN's Kyra Phillips, Robertson was asked to comment on the controversy which erupted over remarks the patriarch of the A&E hit reality show made in an interview last year to GQ magazine.

Phil told the men's fashion glossy that gay sex was an “illogical” sin.

“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,” Phil Robertson said.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man's anus. 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.”

In defending his father, Willie Robertson suggested that the interviewer had an agenda.

“I remember doing that interview and this guy I think he already had what he wanted to put and he was certainly asking specifically this and that and Phil just said what he thought, you know, what was on his heart. He did some paraphrasing there,” Robertson said.

Phillips clarified that Phil paraphrased the book of Corinthians “where it talks about homosexuals, male prostitutes, drunkards ...”

“Thieves,” Willie suggested.

“Yeah, thieves. That they're all the same. Is that what you believe?”

“That's what First Corinthians says. … I believe what the Bible says.”

“And for him [Phil] and for you, the Bible is literal. That's how it is,” Phillips stated.

Robertson agreed: “That's how it was said.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
