Duck DynastyI don't watch the show, but from what these videos have shown, this so-called REALITY show is SCRIPTED. The 2nd Youtube video shows how someone bought one of their pricey-looking armchairs at their garage sale, and when the men male characters make their entrance into the garage sale, they're wondering why their armchair was sold. But the same truck that was driving this armchair out was somehow parked with the other cars behind the garage sale. In the 3rd video, the guy speaking in it(Scott Johnson) shows a web site link which exposes how the whole show is scripted.
The Robertsons are supposedly professing Christians - but pretty much they don't act like it(by their fruits ye shall know them - rotten). But somehow mainline Churchianity has bought into them.
Pretty much everything you see on tv is fake(especially the MSM).
Duck Dynasty is Fake! AGAIN!!!
DUCK DYNASTY a STAGED REALITY SHOW!!!!!!!

Why Christianity Doesn’t Need Duck Dynasty (or other Celebrities).
Duck Dynasty. I like the show. I even liked it before it became the hot commodity that it is today. The Robertsons are my type of people, redneck people, my tribe. The first time I saw Phil Robertson pray before the meal (back in Season 1 when they were still editing out ‘in Jesus name’ at the end), I could tell the man had prayed a time or two in his life. But what I saw in the Robertsons was what I saw as common place in the Bible belt; cultural Christians.
What I don’t mean to say is that the Robertsons are not actual believers. But here is what I’ve perceived from the show: The Robertsons, although giving a hat-tip to Christianity by the closing prayer at every show and an occasional reference to their church, there is nothing inherently different from the Robertsons’ lifestyle (a better judge of faith than a testimony rehearsed for a Lifeway promo) from any neo-pagan family in the Bible Belt.
‘Duck Dynasty’ displays – as a central theme of the show – a gratuitous flaunting of wealth on the part of the show’s main character, Willy. It’s hard to believe the “down to earth” tagline in the magazines when the Robertson clan is flying into the swamp on helicopters, traveling the highway in a ridiculously expensive RV with their face plastered on the side, cruising the lake in an uber-expensive bass boat or purchasing a pair of matching four-wheelers with fancy rims (like what you see on low-riders in the city) – all of which have been highlighted in the reality show. Willy’s infatuation with all things monetary borders on a financial fetish and love of money.
Or take for example the entire episode laced with the incessant jokes about the size of Miss Kay’s breasts (probably the only term not used to refer to the woman’s chest during the episode). Is that the behavior of a godly woman or godly women? Or how about the episode in Season 1 dedicated to then 13 year-old Sadie Robertson dating? Or Grandpa Phil asking her, “How long did you make [your boyfriend] wait until he kissed you” and her response, “not long.” Which, of course, raised nothing from Grandpa Phil except an eyebrow. By the way, Sadie now has her own line of prom dresses in case you were interested (she’s had a busy summer, what with famous musicians singing at her Sweet 16 party and everything). And, of course, the consistent course-jesting (Ephesians 5:4) and bathroom humor that – to be honest – even gets a smile out of me once in a while.
Do all of these things make the Robertsons bad? No – not at all. And neither do they make a family that has seemingly lassoed the American Dream role models for Christians.
What is it about Duck Dynasty that has denominations, Christian magazines, churches and every segment of cultural Christianity clamoring to cash in on the Robertson’s popularity? For example, I was startled to see Lifeway (which is Southern Baptist) promote the Robertsons, who believe in baptismal regeneration. Theirs is not ‘faith-alone,’ but ‘faith plus baptism.’ Of course, Lifeway traded sound doctrine for profitability a long time ago. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t call the Robertsons heretics or unbelievers or insincere. However, as a Baptist, I sure would find somebody else to promote (if Jesus didn’t suffice).
To answer the aforementioned question, I doubt that it’s the pure and unadulterated Gospel that comes through the show. After all, Phil Robertson has said that the producers take out almost everything spiritual in editing. Synergism Today recently posted, “Indeed, one hears more than duck calls on the show. One hears the call of the gospel reverberating…” Really? You hear the Gospel on the show? Is that because Si never leaves without his tea glass or his Bible? The Gospel doesn’t make the editing cut – period. The Robertsons may articulate a ‘Gospel + baptism’ message in churches or other venues in their free time, but there has never been – in any form or fashion – the Gospel presented on the show.
Then what about ‘Duck Dynasty’ creates all the fixation from evangelicals?
1. Evangelicals love celebrities. We love our Tim Tebows and RGIII’s. We love our country stars that become Christian artists (until they get their third DUI). We love them. I think it’s because we don’t have very many celebrities to begin with. We feel left out of celebrity culture, and so we highly esteem Christian celebrities. And every time Disney presents one of their young stars as a “Christian teen” we fall for it hook, line and sinker until they start getting tattoos and dancing at stripper poles (remember, Brittney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Beiber were all billed to us as ‘Christian kids’).
2. There’s a rumor out there that evangelicals are lame, boring, losers, fuddie-duddies. It makes us feel good to have somebody that’s “cool” on our team.
3. There has been a very purposeful (*ahem*) strategy the last 20 years to look at the lost world and say, “see…we’re just like you.” We want to be like the world even more than we want the world to be like us. Having ‘our people’ at the front and center of popular culture makes us feel like we’ve really achieved that.
4. We confuse the American Dream with the Gospel. The Robertsons have a pretty wives and pretty kids, lots of fancy toys, big houses and money. That’s the appeal. Oh, yeah – I forgot…they also have Jesus. There is a cold and dark place in the American soul that thinks the American Dream is a Biblical concept. The Robertsons are our apple pie. They have it all. Sure – they love the big cars, expensive houses, flaunted wealth and let their 13 year old daughters go about dating outside of their supervision, but so what? They’re Christians. They’ve got it all.
We feel like Christian celebrities are our ticket to a party in popular culture that we rarely get invited to. We have ‘ugly girl syndrome’ (forgive the expression); as evangelicals, we rarely get asked to the prom, and this is our chance.
I can’t help but wonder if the evangelical infatuation with ‘Duck Dynasty’ has more to do with our admiration of funny rich people who’ve achieved the American Dream than with devout believers. At the end of the day, we just don’t need celebrities. We need Jesus. And if we truly find the baptismal regeneration preaching of Phil Robertson to be more compelling and articulate than virtually any other man on earth, then let’s value Phil for his commitment to the Bible and not for his toys, wealth, or fame.
If it makes you feel any better, I think Phil might agree.
Duck Dynasty Star Says Show’s Editors Told Them To Stop Praying To Jesus Because It Might Offend Muslims
I'd say this show is showing America from whence it has fallen and we'd better REPENT!
I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

'Duck Dynasty's' Phil Robertson on Indefinite Hiatus Following Anti-Gay Remarks
12/18/13 A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.
"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."
The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with the magazine. He'll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped.
The DD people should use better choice of words, really...

You Have Been Warned
The Duck Dynasty Controversy
Phil Robertson, founder of the Duck Commander company and star of Duck Dynasty gave an interview and has been put on “indefinite suspension” from the program.
Why? Because of controversy over his comments on homosexuality.
Phil Robertson is the plainspoken patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan. In the GQ interview, published in the January 2014 issue of the magazine, Robertson makes clear that his Christian faith is central to his identity and his life. He speaks of his life before Christ and actively seeks to convert the interviewer, Drew Magary, to faith in Christ. He tells Magary of the need for repentance from sin. Magary then asks Robertson to define sin. He responded:
Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
Christians will recognize that Robertson was offering a rather accurate paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10:
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
To be fair, Robertson also offered some comments that were rather crude and graphically anatomical in making the same point.

Hung out to dry
Phil Roberston and his family believe that A & E are discriminating against them for their deeply seated Christian beliefs.
You have to ask yourself, why this interview happened and why it ever became public.
Duck Dynasty star and family hit out at A&E for letting his controversial interview go public and for suspending him.
Obama Order To Destroy Duck Dynasty
Obama’s antipathy toward Christian Americans has long been evidenced, including his comment about these peoples in April, 2008 when he stated, “…it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Obama’s wholesale abandonment of Christians is not only against those in America, but also against the thousands of Christians being slaughtered in Syria by the Islamic rebels his regime supports and his left wing media apologists continue to ignore.
The main supporter behind Obama’s instigated plot to destroy Duck Dynasty was Kevin Brockman, VP for Disney/ABC Television who was elected Chairman of the Board of GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
Brockman made it his personal mission to destroy the Duck Dynasty due to his and Obama’s belief that all objections to homosexuals and their lifestyles, and all references to Christianity must be obliterated from American mass media exposure and popular culture forever.

Sadie Robertson shares faith on YouTube, TV
April 7, 2015 When Sadie Robertson posted a video she made on YouTube she didn't expect her message of faith to go viral. The "Duck Dynasty" star shared the video at the urging of her younger sister Bella. Then she went on 'Good Morning America' talking about it.
In the seven-minute long video, the 17-year-old spoke about her insecurities and how she leans on God to help her overcome her jealousy. She chose to not wear any makeup to show her fans her "real" side.
"I'm just going to be straight up honest with everything," Robertson said in the video that has more than 2 million views. "I struggle with jealousy, and I struggle with comparing myself to other people...I'm just like any other girl. I look in the mirror and I pick out a flaw."
One Duck Dynasty endorses Donald Trump
Jan 22, 2016 - Willie Robertson, Duck Dynasty, endorsed Donald Trump, saying Trump has two attributes that America needs, success and strength. His Pa endorsed Cruz. Donald Trump is a real leader. He represents success and strength, two attributes our country needs. Like me, he is a successful businessman and family man and I endorse his candidacy for President of the United States.
