Robertson, a self-described "Bible-thumper," told GQ that homosexuality was "sinful" and described gay men as "not logical."
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," Robertson told the magazine. "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.”
Robertson later defended himself as a "product of the 60's" who merely wishes to share the religion that pulled him up from rock bottom with others.
"However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me," Robertson said in a statement, as quoted by USA Today. "We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other."
