Phil Robertson puts out statement about his homophobic speech

Phil Robertson really upset a lot of people when he shared his views on being gay. He is not a fan and thinks it is a sin. He went as far as to compare it to bestiality. He explained that he doesn't understand why someone would want a man and not a woman.

A&E did not have a statement to release, but they did share what Phil Robertson had to say about it all. He said, "I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. 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."
