(Newser) – Phil Robertson's recent anti-gay comments are the ones that got him in hot water, but they're far from the first ones he's ever made. TMZ unearthed video of the Duck Dynasty star giving a sermon at a Pennsylvania church in 2010, in which he says that gays are "full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God haters, they are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless, they invent ways of doing evil." So, TMZ asserts, A&E must have known all about Robertson's views when the network gave him a show. (Meanwhile: Newt Gingrich yesterday compared Robertson to the pope.)
