NEW YORK - A&E has declined to comment on a new video of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson reviving past anti-gay remarks.
His comments are included in a sermon delivered at his church in West Monroe, Louisiana, on Easter Sunday. Robertson includes homosexuals with other groups such as thieves and adulterers as hell-bound sinners.
Robertson is the bearded patriarch of a clan that manufactures duck calls and became reality-TV stars. In December he set off a firestorm after GQ magazine quoted him linking homosexual behaviour to bestiality. He also made racist statements.
A&E suspended him for nine days. Robertson issued an apology.
The video was posted Thursday by RadarOnline. It was posted to YouTube by the Whites Ferry Road Church on April 21.
"Duck Dynasty" is scheduled to begin its sixth season on June 11.
