I LOVE DUCK DYNASTY

I started watching this show and , maybe from Roberta's thread of an overarcing parenthetical,(ie "Reality SHows") into which the above would fit, you would recall that I generally hate reality shows , mostly because they are neither.
Duck Dynasty, however, is like watching the daily happenings of the DaVinci clan in which Leonardo is always coming up with new ideas and his family members, each of them erudite and capable of abstract thought, tend to give advice .
Usually fun ensues.

Any other reality shows worth your time?

@farmerman,
I honestly have no idea what Duck Dynasty is about. I only knew they were rednecks with beards. But now I know the father hates gays and loves Jesus. Very shocking to hear from a redneck! Do they shoot things? In a swamp? Can I pray for a hilarious accident? Razz

@jcboy,
The show is mostly a spoof but these people are not dumb hillbillies .The father is a kind of neanerthal about our culture. Hi religious beliefs are often spoofed (mildly) on the show.
hes always making these avuncular "Evangelical points " upon which a life hould be bsed. Thi is the first time hes come up with anything about gay folks and I hope it doesn't kill the show.

Remember, its been only a generation since Stonewall and I still have highly educated uncles that don't like what they don't understand about culture.
Give the show a break. This "patriarch" Ia admittedly a fool with his bible thumping but the show is pretty good overall (IMHO)

If you've ever watched a BBC show called TOP GEAR, the same thing pertains there. One of the TG's "Stars" Jeremy Clarkson said something racist a few years back an was chastised, but Brits seem to have a greater tolerance for all kinds of views than we do. Everything is dark black and bright white with us
Evolution requires time and cutting this guy at the knees is not the right way to change the minds of those that think like him. Id actually like to see him (on the show) get confronted by some verbally saavy gays confront him and have a "come to Jayzus" confrontation. That would be entertaining if some verbally astute gay guy would remind Jimmie that maybe Jezus himself was being dissed with these views.

'Duck Dynasty' star suspended
Phil Robertson under fire for anti-gay and racial remarks

Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?

Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E's "Duck Dynasty," won't be duck calling on air anytime soon.
The network suspended him after he made controversial remarks about gays in a magazine interview.

In the January issue of GQ, Robertson says homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality
and promiscuity.

"It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just
thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But
hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," he's quoted as saying.

When asked what he thought was sinful, Robertson replied: "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."

@Region Philbis,
I still like the show but maybe hes just a few oranges short of a Julius.

Part of the charm f that show is that these are not idiots, they are all intelligent loving people. Too bad Phil was starting to act like the Andy Griffith Character "Lonesome Rhoads" in A Face In the Crowd. Maybe the Duck guys don't realize that were looking at them for their example , not their silly worldview.
OK, hes a douche bag, so sue me.

So, do you believe this controvery is all about publicity?

How many new people have watched the show because of this latest media emergency making the rounds?

Can the clan sitting down to barilla pasta be far off?

Stay tuned.

Yep, a few more episodes in and I'm now hooked.

Uncle Si is trying out a giant poodle as a retriever, and Willie has just invented a new pose in the yoga regime he's signed up for. 'Fat Man Dying'.

If you don't like the show, change channels. there is more than one show and more than one station to watch. if it were us Christians complaining about a show, that is what you would be telling us.

Phil was suspended, but he's back on the show, now. You can't keep a good man down. but there is only one good, and that is GOD.

America is the only country in the world that i know of where the minority controlls the majority, and they do a pretty good job of it too.

No he's not. He's great. The Whole family is great. If you don't like the show, don't watch it, but don't force your views on evey body else.

@roger,
yeh, he was a guy in his 40's with kids right? I remember talking to him about something and was really amazed at his depth of knowledge about Brittany. He kinda creeped me out..

He could be funny at times. Hard to miss entirely with names like those.
