Phil Robertson

Churchgoer Sues A&E

They're Screwing With My Right to Hate!

A self-proclaimed member of Phil Robertson's church is literally making a federal case over Phil's suspension ... he's suing A&E and others because he feels the network is chilling his right to hate homosexuals.

Chris Sevier, who claims to be a lawyer, has previously sued pretty much everyone under the sun, including Bill O'Reilly, CBS, Facebook and Apple. 

This time around, Sevier has put together 91 pages of law and religious propaganda, quoting scriptures about the evils of homosexuality.  Sevier claims the fact that A&E has indefinitely suspended Phil is going to have a chilling effect on other churchgoers -- himself included -- when it comes to preaching what he believes is the word of God.

As for what that word is ... Sevier thinks it's rooted in sin.  He says, if gay marriage is allowed, "citizens in that state should be able to marry their pets" -- he sees no difference.

In addition to suing A&E ... Sevier is suing President Obama, claiming the Prez is in cahoots with A&E to further the pro-gay agenda. 

At one point in the rambling lawsuit, which Sevier says will be filed today, he says, "We live in a Christian nation 'Jack.'"

One final thing ... take a look at some of the pictures Sevier sprinkled in the suit.  We don't know the rhetorical point he's making, but they're hilarious.

235 cements so far on this article with all kinds of comments directed at Phil and family as being ignorant, yet the article isn't about Phil. It is about Chris Sevier and TMZ decided to put Phil's face on it. Why not try reading before jumping on the band wagon of the media twisting everything to start a fight. I see a lot of ignorance here. Don't need to go to Phil to get it.

Sounds like he is a career suer.
What i'm most shocked about is that people actually watch that awful show.

Screwing with my right to hate?

Get over yourself TMZ Staffers. Even if Harvey gave this headline the green light - he's still shown more tolerance towards people who he disagrees with than this headline would show.

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

Geez what about A&E's right to sell and produce what they want to produce. I thought the right had been pushing for companies to have the same rights as individuals. Plus he signed a contract, and A&E exercised their rights. Everyone else who disagree has the right to yell, picket, and boycott Duck Dynasty and A&E. You know A&E is laughing all the way to the bank.

he's free to say what he wants about gay people. A&E is also free to terminate his employment, it goes both ways. If I had an employee running his mouth saying dumb stuff giving my company negative attention I'd fire him too, he should know better.

no one violated the nitwits right to free speech. he is free to speak as much hate and ignorance as he wants and A&E, a PRIVATE COMPANY, is free to fire him if they choose.

I grew up as a Christian, when did they become so vile?
