Skip to comments.In wake of 'Duck Dynasty' star suspension, Sheriff Miller tells A&E they are not welcome (GA)
Posted on 12/21/2013 8:49:21 AM PST by ilovesarah2012
The suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson by the A&E Network after making controversial remarks in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality has been called a business decision. But now Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller is making a business decision of his own.
Miller announced on his personal Facebook page Friday night that A&E would no longer be welcomed to film or produce any of its programs or series with the help of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office or its facilities. "A&E has suspended Phil Robertson for talking about his conservative Christian beliefs," Miller wrote." None of us are without sin and I am not judging anyone. I am sure A&E made what they believe is a good business decision. Many people who disagree with A&E might choose to remain silent and there was a time when I might have done the same, but no longer. In my mind the punishment is unreasonable.
"I know it will not matter to A&E, but it will make me feel better. A&E has produced more than a half dozen programs with the assistance of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. They will not do any more with my assistance while I am sheriff. It is time for someone other than Hollywood and the news media to stand up for what is right!"

A hearty SALUTE to Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller.
What are the names and faces behind A&E—I want some photos of the execs who are making these decisions.
Every cowboy hero-sheriff from those old Westerns comes to mind right now. What a stellar decision!

Good questions. They need to be ID’d and outted
A hearty SECOND.
Considering that this probably brought money, some recognition, and excitement to his office, this is a bigger sacrifice than most would be willing to absorb in order to make a statement.
More info on her mismanagement team.
And we need to stop accepting the libtards description of his comments as “hateful” or “controversial” or “homophobic”
It was none of those, it was an accurate description of what The Bible calls ‘sin’ and his personal opinion about the the preference of a vagina over a man's anus.
(SORRY to be so descriptive - but I am pretty sure 100% of non-gay males agree)
Can someone photoshop her head on a platter with an apple in her mouth? That would go viral in a heartbeat.
Not a day passes where my disgust and disdain for Liberals fails to intensify and deepen.
And I’m pretty sure 100% of non-lesbian women agree!
Actually, the Daily Mail said that an A&E representative was present when Phil had his interview with GQ and could have had the statements in question removed but didn't.
This is beginning to sound like Phil was set up by A&E. For what purpose, I don't know.
Now A&E has really begun to foul their own nest. The best show on their network has been the past two seasons of “Longmire”. It is the only show I watch on A&E. It is about a very private, high Sheriff, Absaroka County, Wyoming. The acting is great, story lines are plausible and the scenery is fabulous (filmed mostly in New Mexico). I stand with the Robertsons in their effort to live their faith and so should we all. I don’t think the A&E top brass gave a thought to what this censorship of the Robertsons’ would do to their “other” top rated show.
A&E is making an as out of themselves.
Anyone got that handy list of other stations affiliated?
I stop watching every channel.
A&E might become another footnote where left wing liberals killed a company by pushing left wing hate bs.
The fags jumped the shark this time. Their “In Your Face” bull**** is wearing thin with normal, decent Americans.
“Not a day passes where my disgust and disdain for Liberals fails to intensify and deepen.”
A lot of us feel the same way.
Liberals are evil liars and fascists, who want to take away our freedom of speech and freedom of thought.
When the devil comes to visit earth, this is how he presents himself.
Health Risks of the Homosexual Lifestyle
The current media portrayal of gay and lesbian relationships is that they are as healthy, stable and loving as heterosexual marriages or even more so.1 Medical associations are promoting somewhat similar messages.2 Sexual relationships between members of the same sex, however, expose gays, lesbians and bisexuals to extreme risks of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), physical injuries, mental disorders and even a shortened life span. There are five major distinctions between gay and heterosexual relationships, with specific medical consequences. They are:
Levels of Promiscuity read more
Similar extremes of promiscuity have not been documented among lesbians. However, an Australian study found that 93 percent of lesbians reported having had sex with men, and lesbians were 4.5 times more likely than heterosexual women to have had more than 50 lifetime male sex partners. Any degree of sexual promiscuity carries the risk of contracting STDs.
Physical Health read more
Male Homosexual Behavior
Female Homosexual Behavior
Common sexual practices among gay men lead to numerous STDs and physical injuries, some of which are virtually unknown in the heterosexual population. Lesbians are also at higher risk for STDs. In addition to diseases that may be transmitted during lesbian sex, a study at an Australian STD clinic found that lesbians were three to four times more likely than heterosexual women to have sex with men who were high-risk for HIV.
Mental Health read more
It is well established that there are high rates of psychiatric illnesses, including depression, drug abuse, and suicide attempts, among gays and lesbians. This is true even in the Netherlands, where gay, lesbian and bisexual (GLB) relationships are far more socially acceptable than in the U.S. Depression and drug abuse are strongly associated with risky sexual practices that lead to serious medical problems.
Life Span read more
The only epidemiological study to date on the life span of gay men concluded that gay and bisexual men lose up to 20 years of life expectancy.
Monogamy read more
Monogamy, meaning long-term sexual fidelity, is rare in GLB relationships, particularly among gay men. One study reported that 66 percent of gay couples reported sex outside the relationship within the first year, and nearly 90 percent if the relationship lasted five years.
It is clear that there are serious medical consequences to same-sex behavior. Identification with a GLB community appears to lead to an increase in promiscuity, which in turn leads to a myriad of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and even early death. Youth should be warned of the undeniable health risks associated with a homosexual lifestyle.
I just phoned the local restaurant and emailed the Cracked Barrel chain to inform them, no matter what management may say, none of my family will ever visit any of their locations ever again. Pissed me off that they were one of the early sponsors to back off supporting Phil Robertson personally.
"Boy, you better get yer ass outta my town..."
This is getting better and better all the time.
Who would have thought that a bearded Redneck guy and family would start the “I have had enough from sicko’s” revolution?
I guess the Sheriff can do what he wants, but if it means providing inferior public safety when it comes to the A & E crew, he’s treading on some legal thin ice.
This is an educational moment! IT GOES BOTH WAYS,BABY! Crap on your public-your public can crap back on you! Difference is, you NEED the public( not just the 2%), the public does NOT NEED your channel. There’s your sign...got it, A&E? JC Penneys did!
GOD BLESS THEM!
We'll see about that. A real sign will be just how many "Mad as Hell..." conservatives actually take some action like CANCELING their cable or satellite TV package for even a few days...
I love Georgia.
Might be the last straw. I am shocked the public has reacted the way they have. Quite happy as well.
Douglas County ping.
What part of this upsets you?
No doubt, they had provided assistance in the past because of their deep respect for the Robertsons.
Good point. Ironically, his speaking out may result in his becoming A&Es best friend the next time they visit Douglas County
Evil Liars and Fascists is only a light scratch on the surface.
These vile and disgusting “people” are also without any moral compass, intellectual honesty or common human decency what-so-ever. They are purely destructive in everything that they do. They bring nothing uplifting or positive to society nor do they contribute to the advancement of their fellow man.
They deserve nothing more than all of the scorn and shunning than we can heap upon them.
I have reached the point where I will never wittingly come to their aid or assistance. Sad to say, but that is my reality.
I'd bet that Korie Robertson could whip Nancy Dubuc's Liberal Donkey

A&E will have to hire a private firm for assistance.
“Health Risks of the Homosexual Lifestyle”
And aren’t we glad that obamacare will now pay for every one of these conditions brought on by a conscious choice? They should be made to pay more just like smokers are being forced to pay more.
I have a stupid question: How do I get to my bookmarks?
Actually, it’s a good question because I can’t find them.
Exactly right — you have nailed it. The health risks associated with the homosexual lifestyle cannot be glossed over or ignored. They are REAL and they can be absolutely deadly. The homosexual lifestyle is not only self destructive, it can be even suicidal when practiced to extremes. Perhaps the most suicidal are the gays that openly seek partners that have HIV or AIDS. These fools play a form of “Russian Roulette” with every sex act for the thrill of it. Worse, if the practitioner does become infected, they continue with their sex practices to spread their disease to others. That is truly evil.
