Duck Dynasty: We’re Using Hollywood to Spread Christian Values

The non-bearded Robertson brother of TV’s Duck Dynasty, Alan Robertson, said in a recent interview that the Robertsons are turning the tables on Hollywood, using Tinsel Town to spread Christianity instead of the usual Hollyweird practice of using our entertainment industry to spread hate for Christianity.

Until last year, Alan Robertson was a pastor of a Louisiana church, but he stepped down from that position and has joined the rest of his family in the popular TV reality show that airs on the A & E Network.

Alan is the eldest son of Robertson family patriarch and Duck Commander company founder Phil Robertson.

When he announced he was stepping down from his pastorship, Alan said, “What I do for our church–you see, it’s a pretty good-sized church–impacts a lot of people, but because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people. Any person that’s an evangelist, that’s what you want to do, so I had to give this up for something possibly bigger.”

This month he’s taking that farther saying that he and his family are actually using Hollywood for a purpose for which it is not used to being used.

Robertson told Religion News Service that they are using Hollywood for all its worth.

“You have to look at it as positive that they’re being aware,” Robertson said. “If it’s a way to make money, more power to you; it’s America. It looks like they’re taking advantage of us, but we’re taking advantage of them to get the gospel preached.”

On the success of the show, he said the clan have a sort of formula they are using.

“Our faith is the main part of our lives, but it’s better to be subtle. It’s more effective. When Jesus talked in parables, he wanted people to seek and find. I think it’s better that it’s funny, and while faith is there, for people who want more, we have that in our books. We don’t want to make it like ‘The 700 Club for Rednecks.’”

Alan Robertson also said he probably won’t grow a beard like the rest of the men in his family.

    Good! A positive message of hope and love of God, for once!

    I like these guys. They’re good guys. – But, I think I have just as much beard as these guys. It just officially reached by belly button the other day. One of my girlfriends loves to do an outlaw prison style braid on it, which looks cool when out on one of my choppers blowing in the wind with an outlaw style helmet and sunglasses.

      Dude, you posted a few weeks back that you lost it up to your neck.

      Either you’ve been mainlining Rogaine, or you’re pretty flexible to get it to your belly button! ;)

        Old photo. It’s belly button time! – But, it’s controversial. Some girls really like it and some really don’t. Wins me some girls, loses me others.- That was a joke when I said that I got it caught in a motorcycle chain and died. – But, it would make a great obituary someday if it really happens…But, I got a lot more ridin’, livin’ and lovin’ to do before that happens….God forbid…

        That might be kind of fun to be that flexible like you mentioned. I never tried that. I’m not that flexible, so I need girls to do that for me.

      But, I think I…

      One of my girlfriends…

      one of my choppers…

      Just saying ;)

        I know….All I can suggest is get yourself some testosterone, grow yourself a half decent beard, get yourself at least one bitchin’ wicked chopper, and find yourself a girl half your age if you’re an old guy like me….Works for me….The Duck Dynasty guys don’t do bad either….Look at their wives….

    Using television to advance one’s beliefs? The very idea!

  • LiberalNightmare

    Well, its not like they’re using the school system to promote socialism.

  • Grace_ia

    Those of us who have that same Christian faith and belief system need to pray daily for this family.

    If anyone makes any type of moral mistake, though Jesus forgives, the leftist media hacks will make an example of how evil and two faced this family’s Christian belief is.
