Are over the range microwaves safe over gas stoves?

We'd like to upgrade from an electric stove to gas.
We currently have an over the range microwave. We thought we'd just leave it there, because if we removed it, we'd have to redo the backsplash, which is more of a project than we'd like to get into.
The dude at Lowe's told us we should NOT have an over the range microwave with a gas stove, something to the effect of gas stoves emitting higher BTUs than electric, and not safe around the microwave. He said if we're going with gas, we should replace the microwave with a range hood.
