'Duck Dynasty' star: show leading students to pray
Austin American Statesmen ^ | January 13, 2014

Posted on 01/13/2014 8:48:02 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

MONTGOMERY, Ala. —

A teenager on TV's "Duck Dynasty" says the reality show is leading students to pray before lunch at schools across the country.

Sixteen-year-old Sadie Robertson told an audience in Montgomery on Sunday that young people are forming "Duck Dynasty clubs" to pray before lunch at school. She said it's an awesome thing for a TV show to be able to bring prayer into schools.

I think this is why secular humanists are horrified by the success of DD. A large percentage of its audience, if not the majority, is kids and teens - they love it. Go look over the mountains of DD gear for sale at Wal-Mart and you’ll see that much of it is aimed at kids. Just look at all the DD school gear - everything from notebooks to luchboxes. They know the Christian approach to life is going to rub off on these kids or at least make them curious to check out what it’s all about. DD has made it cool for kids to be Christian. And that terrifies the secular world.

“The left is going to go NUTS!”

How long before the schools attempt to run the Duck Dynasty lunch prayer groups out? I’m sure this won’t go unchallenged.

yep. Their kids give me a little more confidence.

As an aside, I read the comments after this article. This one, defending gays, stood out to me....

Oh, yes, I am so gosh darn evil by the simple fact of existing. Booga booga boo, blake! You've got gay cooties now! (Jeez. *Somebody* needs to get a clue about what evil is.)

Typical idiocy, but the comment quickly reminded me that the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn't exist.

Welcome to West Monroe, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.

Unlike Lake Wogegon where the humorists have one eyebrow and make lousy neighbors.

There will be a new push by the left to get them taken off the air. The left doesn’t want normal people encouraging normal people to act normal.

You aren't far from the mark.

Why I Bought A House In Detroit For $500

Will told me that the best way to buy a house here is to find one you like and then figure out who owns it. He had lived in Detroit a decade before, but moved out to travel the country. This was his homecoming. He purchased the house for $3,000 from the son of a woman who had died. It had been abandoned for years, but there was an upstairs room full of her possessions — steamer trunks, furniture, family pictures. Some of her photographs still hung on the walls, including a portrait of the first black mayor of Detroit, Coleman Young, and a painting of a white Jesus Christ. She had them arranged so the Christ appeared to be praying to Young.

My 5th grade great grand Daughter loves the show, her mom does not even know what it is about, she watches it with her uncle, who is a big sports and fishing guy, she loves to fish, even bates her own hook. She was doing the Gator chomp when she was 3, Gator Fan deluxe family. And she does go to church.

I was playing another guy a game of chess in a high school cafeteria during lunch. I thought it was just frickin’ ridiculous but we took our game outside and finished it with a win for me.

Let’s just say that the diverse vice-principal that kicked us out could be beaten at the game in two moves.

But what can you expect from a high school that was about 65-70 percent diverse???

"she loves to fish, even bates her own hook."

"baits" her own hook. (I'm not a spelling nazi but being a long time crappie fisherman I couldn't let that one go by.)

Wish they’d move the show to RFDTV, lot of older shows, Christian, older C & W, gospel too. We watch Family’s Reunion with Bill Anderson, Larry’s Dinner, and the Joey & Rory Feek show. All good clean shows. Man you can hear one of the older generation (my generation) C & W artist like Charley Pride or Jon Conlee, Jean Shepard and you know who they are as soon as the first couple of words are sung, even if it is not one of theirs who the artist is. Unique voices, and songs. Bill Anderson is still writing and co-writing hits. Whiskey Lula Bye is one of his co-written songs.

We tape the show as we have NO interest in the rest of the stuff on a & e.

This is my husband and my favorite channel RFDTV...Wish more people would watch, I know they would love it. Larry’s diner is fun. Larry Black use to be our asst. Pastor but showbiz was always in his blood. Nadine and I went to church together when we were young women, 30 yrs. ago. Nadine, Mona Brown and her friend did a “church lady” skit at one of our Valentine banquets during that time and I do believe Nadine has been born again. Just a fun show.

Oh and Molly B’s polka party is a hoot. They play the same polka over and over and just change the names. so cute to see those seniors hopping around the polka floor :)

You can bet that the homosexual lobby and A&E have not forgotten the shellacking they were given. You can also bet the farm that they are waiting and looking for something they can use to trump up something else against them [the Robertsons].

Besides the sports stuff, cars, DD, food network, DIY and RFDTV, there is not much else we watch. We have Netflix, do the streaming and disc for the old movies we like. Found out we can get old TV shows on You Tube to stream to the TV. Watching the Beverely Hillbillies is a HOOT again. Hee Haw too.

I noticed right off how Christian friendly the station is and the shows. My favorite is Family Reunion because it has so many of my old favorite singers, and Joey and Rory. That baby will pop in Feb. this week they are going to have shots of the baby shower.

This younger generation of C & W singers need to be watching the show, to learn how to stay on top and be unique. My nephew just started his second year in Nashville, plays 17 instruments, good singer, plays some of the top clubs, but unless he broadens his music to other age groups, he will not go any where unless he finds a great song to record. And writers are not beating down doors of the unknowns.
