Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty Clan Laughing All the Way to the Bank

From the Los Angeles Times:

The season premiere of A&E’s backwoods reality smash, “Duck Dynasty,” ended on an unintentionally prescient note Wednesday night. As the resolutely goofy Uncle Si chortled and cheered over a movie he was watching on television, the show’s patriarch, Phil Robertson, shot him a derisive glance and said “Si, you do realize that none of this is real?”

He was referring to the movie “Air Bud,” which Si had previously dubbed a film classic, but he might just as well have been talking about his own show, which has lately reaffirmed the highly elastic nature of the term “reality.”

I love this quote, “Si, you do realize that none of this is real?” A few weeks ago, Phil spoke the truth about homosexuality and now he speaks the truth about Duck Dynasty. (BTW, the latest show has Si using a VCR and VHS tapes. Does anyone think they really still use a VCR? And does anyone really think he prefers Air Bud to Jason Bourne? I suppose it is p-o-s-s-i-b-l-e.)

The new season of Duck Dynasty premiered this week and the show was viewed by 3 million fewer people than last year’s premier.  Granted, 8 million viewers is a lot of viewers for a cable TV program, but the program continues to trend downward number wise. This why the Robertson clan needs to pluck the duck while they can. Here is a  page from a recent Christian Book catalog. It will tell you everything you need to know.

Get it why you can Robertson clan,  because  Christians are nothing if they are not fickle, temperamental, and judgmental.  Perhaps pictures of Si sunbathing nude will find their way to the internet and the Robertson clan will face the wrath of the righteous like Amy Grant did years ago.

If you have not read my previous posts on Duck Dynasty, you can read them here.

    In the interest of truth, research, and fairmindedness, I tried to get the rest of the story you mentioned on Amy Grant, but all I found was this lousy article:

    I know you wouldn’t want me to believe something you say without you backing it up with high-resolution evidence of your assertions.

    (No evidence on Billy Graham and CS Lewis will be necessary. Even I would rather just take some things on faith.)

      All I remember is she sunbathed topless on a European beach. There was also her use of alcohol. And her affair :) She was a bad, bad Christian. This is all very old news.

          Already saw that. More boring than the one I linked to. Where’s the paparazzi when you really need them.

            I think this happened in pre-internet or early-internet days. Back before Christians had access to porn 24-7. :)

      Here is a post by a sexually frustrated Fundamentalist about the “sins” of Amy Grant.

        I guess we’ll have to settle for some dirty lyrics.

        That website is an amazing mess of pain and repression. With a worldview so narrow and pessimistic, I don’t know how this guy manages to simply live day to day — he must be in a constant agony of fear and loathing at the sin and evil and heresy he sees everywhere he looks. When someone gets to this point, you just have to feel sorry for them. “Jesus will set you free”? More like “Adam lay ybounden.” :-(

    Also, if I remember correctly, she started singing secular songs. O, the horror!

      Yeah, her worldliness was a real problem for a lot of people. Not me because I thought her music was “worldly” to start with. :)

    I don’t like the Duck Dynasty guys but I have to admit, the Chia Pet versions were hilarious.

      Not sure why your comments keep going to moderate. :) I am NOT moderating your comments. Sorry about that.

        I’ve been having lots of weird computer issues the last two or three days. Thanks for the note.

    I think the whole Duck Dynasty show is a giant scam, and yes they are laughing all the way to the bank. There is a picture of them floating around the web taken not long before the show started showing the men groomed and dressed much like any suburban people anywhere.

      Yeah, I posted those photos on one of the posts I wrote. Hard to see it as anything more than a group of men and women profiting from the gullibility of many Christians.
