Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller is vowing to send a message to A&E.
In a Facebook post attributed to the Georgia sheriff, he blasts the network’s decision to suspend “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
The Facebook post says his office has assisted A&E with several productions, but now he’s telling the network to take a hike.
The Douglas County Sentinel interviewed Miller by phone on Friday.
“[T]hey are punishing a man for being honest and answering a question that he was asked. When he answered and gave his understanding, pulling from his Christian beliefs, this happens. It’s not right and I had to say something about it.
“I don’t hate anybody and you can ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you the same thing. But where we are in this country now, where you are punished for simply saying what your understanding of your Christian beliefs are is just too much for me.”
Way to go, Sheriff!
