Is Being Gay as Sinful as 'Duck Dynasty' Star Says?

After Phil Robertson made some anti-gay remarks to GQ magazine, a discussion about Christianity and its stance on homosexuality was thrust to the front pages of social media.

Is there room for interpretation when discussing homosexuality and the Bible? Or are Christians placing too much importance on homosexuality?

"New Day" talked about these controversial questions with Pastor Robert Jeffress from the First Baptist Church of Dallas and Frank Schaeffer, a pastor who was defrocked by the Methodist Church after officiating his son's same-sex wedding.

We spoke with CNN Religion Contributor Father Edward Beck and Joey Reiman, author of "The Story of Purpose: The Path to Creating a Brighter Brand, a Greater Company and a Lasting Legacy."
