(CNN) - A&E networks has put one of their most popular characters on indefinite hiatus. The patriarch of the series "Duck Dynasty" has been suspended from filming after his comments about same-sex relationships in a recent GQ interview. In the January issue of GQ, Phil Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. Some say Robertson was quoting widely supported church positions on sin not just homosexuality. Wilson Cruz and other gay rights advocates are hitting back hard, citing growing acceptance of same-sex marriage and relationships suggesting Robertson is ignorant, bigoted, or both.
