Many of you have seen the new hit television series “Duck Dynasty.” I must admit I never miss an episode. No matter if you like the show or not, as a Christian or one who believes in family values it is encouraging to see a show promoting both Christianity and family values. It is especially encouraging to see the amount of success it is having. Duck Dynasty is one of the most watched shows currently airing. It even topped American Idol in its most recent finale with over 9 million viewers.* There are multiple videos and radio interviews of the Duck Commander crew professing their devotion to God, and in Phil Robertson most recent book “Happy, Happy, Happy” he boldly proclaims his trust in Christ.
The long bearded, camouflage wearing, Bible believing men of Duck Dynasty have been placed in a powerful position, and it is great to see them using their influence for good. With the amount of programs on television destroying the family unit or making fun of those who believe in God, it is refreshing to see a show defending these values. It is even greater to see the great success it is having. We could learn a lot from the boys in the woods, and they deserve our support.
