Duck Dynasty gets support of Southern Blacks while spearheading prayers in schools.
The head patriarch of reality TV show, Duck Dynasty was embroiled in a heated controversy a while back after his comments about gays and blacks. But now all that is so much water underneath the bridge. Today the highly popular show not only has the support of many southern blacks but also spearheads prayers in schools.
While many of us do manage to blurt out something inappropriate time to time, the lucky ones are those who bounce back to their former stance of respectability. Duck Dynasty head honcho, Phil Robertson put his foot in his mouth when he denigrated gays and lesbians in a GQ interview. He furthermore said that black Americans were happier before the civil rights era.
There was a public uproar at these faux pas comments. But the support for him afterwards by Christian groups was so great that the channel was forced to reinstate him. Now the man who spoke so much mumbo jumbo is being supported by an unexpected audience. Black church-going members in the southern United States are totally in favor of Phil and his show.
Although many of the knee-jerk liberals were dead against Phil for his remarks, those people who had a faith were impressed by his resilience in the face of a Godless and secular crowd. These surprisingly included many blacks living in Dixieland. Many members and leaders of the church said that they were not about to quote scripture just to suit a particular lifestyle that went against Nature.
However, some of them did say that blacks didn’t enjoy the abuse heaped on them by their taskmasters before the civil rights era. Meanwhile, a black hunter too spoke out in support of Phil. He said that the older generation had their own opinions and you cannot judge them by today’s ultra-liberal criteria. Phil’s next initiative is to encourage the practice of praying in schools.
