Miller said while it was A&E’s “prerogative” to indefinitely suspend Robertson over his comments on homosexuality, his decision to no longer give the sheriff department’s assistance to the network was “what he thought was right to show how he feels,” the: Douglas County Sentinel reported.[3]

According to the Sentinel:

“I guess I need to learn to keep my mouth shut too,” Miller said in a phone interview Friday night. “But they 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.”
