In wake of 'Duck Dynasty' star suspension, Sheriff Miller tells A&E they are not welcome (GA)

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!"

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.

Wow- A&E exec's are probably squirming right now at the backlash

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)

I am sure A&E made what they believe is a good business decision.

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.

Phil Robertson's “sin” was that he told the truth about the male homosexual lifestyle without all the fuzzy, feel good aura the liberals like to use describing “male gayness” — that is, anal sex. The liberals get around the truth of male on male copulation by talking about love and feelings and companionship. The reality is that male homosexuality is about having sex with as many anonymous partners as possible in the shortest amount of time. There's no love here. It's all about self-centered lust. That is the ugly truth that the homosexual lobby and A&E are defending. It is not a defense that will serve them well.

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.

In Summary
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.

Looks like the backlash against A&E continues to grow. Good. I guarantee that A&E has no idea how to deal with this latest.

The Hollywood types are not used to anyone standing up to them. When the county Sheriff tells you you're no longer welcome, you've got big problems.

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.

Seems Cracker Barrel has sided with the Homo group which represents at most, maybe 4% of the general population. I emailed them this morning telling them I'm through with them since they lack backbone. Imagine a restaurant pretending to be a 'family oriented' restaurant siding with the moral bankrupt anti-family GLAAD bunch.

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.

No doubt, they had provided assistance in the past because of their deep respect for the Robertsons.

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.

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.

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.
