Duck Dynasty star: ‘It’s spiritual warfare’


Phil and Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame confirmed something I have long suspected: There is nothing more unreal than reality TV — well, with the possible exception of the “Law and Order” series and Road Runner cartoons.

Although the A&E series only premiered a year and a half ago, it’s formula of family, business and faith soon developed a loyal following of millions of dedicated fans, and the numbers continue to grow.

But the family patriarch, Phil Robertson, revealed in a video interview with The Christian Post that much of what happens during taping gets distorted by editors “with no moral compass.” As a consequence, the viewer only gets a taste of what the Robertsons are all about.

“They inserted fake beeps like somebody had used profanity,” Robertson said. “But no one had used profanity.”

After much back and forth, the editors finally quit inserting the fake bleeps. But then they deleted the words, “in Jesus’ name,” each time the family prayed.

After raising a fuss, Robertson said, “I noticed now, every once in a while, they’re leaving it in there.”

Bringing reality to TV — true reality — has been a struggle for the Robertsons. It’s what Phil Robertson calls a “spiritual war” — a modern-day crusade.

Robertson told The Christian Post what it’s like to film a show where editors are editing out the family’s faith:

You gotta remember, it’s spiritual warfare. I mean, you’ve got people with no moral compass. It ain’t there. So what I tell people is be patient.

They’re the ones, they own the network and we’re filming the show.

We signed the contract with them, ok, and it’s a workhouse, but what people have to understand is, the people of God have to understand, you’ve just got to be patient. You don’t turn that ship quickly. It’s a big ship. A lot of depravity and a lot of heathen and a lot of the evil one. He is entrenched in the United States.

Think of the Robertsons and the folks at A&E as worlds colliding.

“The people who want to hear more from the spiritual side, trust me, are gathering up in massive numbers,” Robertson said. “This is Hollywood hitting the kingdom of God.”

Whether the Hollywood moonbats realize it or not, America is becoming more conservative and faith-driven. Because of that, we’ll take our tales of the Robertsons straight up, thank you — no mix, no chaser and no garbage.

As for the Road Runner series, I’m absolutely convinced (though I can’t prove it yet) that Wile E. Coyote has more than one stunt double.

    Im a Christian who knows that Muslims are NOT OFFENDED by the name of Jesus because they believe in Jesus and they believe in his return, they just dont believe he was the son of God..So we should pray for them. JEWS dont believe in Jesus and their religious book the TALMUD says horrible things about horrible I cant repeat them here. If you preach the gospel to a Jew in Israel you go to jail…and who runs Hollywood???

      It drives me crazy when Christians are so ignorant about the world around them and fall right into the propaganda. They dont take time research anything just believe whatever the TV tells them.

  2. Julie Crawford says:

    ok, so now you can’t hear the audio on the video at all! Lovely editing! Christ is still there!

    Actually Wile E. Coyote has a pending lawsuit against the Acme Company for defective merchandise.

    duck dynasty is a bunch of white food stamp trailer trash bums

    The article is not about the poll people. Its about the spiritual warfare that God fearing, good families face in today’s world. Example: placing fake “Bleeps” to indicate profanity being used in order to make people think that the Robertson’s Faith in God was not as important as it is or the removal of “In Jesus’ Name” at the end of their prayers. As in most things we have seen over the past 30 years or so, God is being removed from everything and it is wrong. Just think if there were a similar show with people who practiced Islam. What would Hollywood remove then? NOTHING!

    Try to stay on Topic.

      The Ducks should protest by not doing the show. Boycott.

        C’mon Doug. They may look funny, but they are good folk.

    Respect is earned and he hasn’t earned any
