At a rally Sunday in support of Senator Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson called marriage equality “evil” and “wicked.”

“Don't you understand that when a fellow like me looks at the landscape and sees the depravity, the perversion – redefining marriage and telling us that marriage is not between a man and a woman?” Robertson told the cheering crowd. “Come on Iowa! It's nonsense. It is evil. It's wicked. It's sinful.”

“And they want us to swallow it, you say? We have to run this bunch out of Washington, D.C. We have to rid the Earth of them,” he added. “Ted Cruz loves God. He loves James Madison. And he's a strict constitutionalist.”

In 2014, cable network A&E briefly suspended the reality star for saying that gay sex was an illogical “sin” and putting it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.

Cruz praised Robertson as an “extraordinary human being.”

“What a voice Phil has to speak out for the love of Jesus,” Cruz is quoted as telling the crowd.
