LOS ANGELES
(AP) -- The A&E channel says "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson
is off the show indefinitely after condemning gays as sinners in a
magazine interview.

In a statement Wednesday, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to read Robertson's comments in GQ magazine.

His beliefs are personal and don't reflect the views of A&E or the show itself, the channel said.

Robertson
has been placed on an indefinite hiatus from filming the hit reality
show, which follows a colorful Louisiana family that manufactures duck
calls. "Duck Dynasty" has set cable ratings records for a non-fiction
series.

In the interview in the January issue
of GQ, Robertson put gays into the company of others who are sinners,
including adulterers and swindlers.
