He did in fact do that. It is your reading comprehension that needs work apparently.
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,”
Morph being the keyword here. He clearly has set the root for sexual deviance as homosexuality. You can deny, deny and deny it until you are blue in the face but that is exactly what he did. I don't get why people are running to this professional liars defense anyway. The whole bearded fool schtick is just that schtick. A blatant ripoff of the Beverly Hillbillies the only difference being the Beverly Hillbillies was actually entertaining. In fact I wouldn't doubt that the bearded liars cooked this whole thing up knowing their 15 minutes was just about up.

And again It is you showing poor reading comprehension. I did not say he said it was the root of all "sin". He did however put it as the root of sexual deviance or "sin" which is why he chose it first and declared that everything else morphs from it.
There's also a historical precedent for people who compare everything to Hitler.
There is a historical president for reaction of Ducks comments.
Remember way back when to Nazi Germany and their book burning.
They got rid of anything they didn't like.
People are free to say whatever the hell they want.
Doesn't matter in private or public.
People are free to disagree or agree with it.
That is where it begins and ends.
That is the epitome of a 'free society'.
Say whatever the hell floats your boat.
Thought and expression is not owned by anyone.

Personally I think A&E jumped the gun a little bit on this. But in today's atmosphere I can hardly blame them for looking out for their brand.
And in what context is it ok to declare homosexuality as the root cause of bestiality and every other deviance from the norm? This is what has landed him in this situation. Had he just simply said he thought it was wrong and he disagreed with it this would be an entirely different discussion, instead he took it to a whole different level with his comments.
How in the world did a family of squirrel-eating, Bible-thumping, catchphrase-spouting duck hunters become the biggest TV stars in America?
Out here in these woods, without any cameras around, Phil is free to say what he wants. Maybe a little too free. He’s got lots of thoughts on modern immorality, and there’s no stopping them from rushing out.
We’re Bible-thumpers who just happened to end up on television,” [Robertson] tells me. “You put in your article that the Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong,” he says. “Sin becomes fine.”
What, in your mind, is sinful?
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
