The offending falsehood that's being spread around the wingnuttia universe, especially on Facebook.
There is a vicious scam going around on Facebook today, and chances are, especially if you wound up stopping by on this article, you have heard about it. It’s the little Facebook page that says that the show Duck Dynasty is potentially going to be cancelled because “liberals and atheists” are complaining that too much praying and guns are shown on television during the program.Even the Glenn Beck-founded and conservative-biased TheBlaze debunked the rumors:
We did our research and revealed that this was indeed a hoax. However, we didn’t really need to research it. Bottom line: liberals and atheists probably don’t spend a lot of their time watching Duck Dynasty. If they do, then they are probably not really atheists or liberals, unless they just simply find the show entertaining and not offensive.
So what’s the truth?I, like most liberals/progressives, take zero offense to the gun usage and the prayers on the show.
There’s nothing to it, family member and Phil’s oldest (and non-bearded ) son Alan Robertson tells TheBlaze.
“The rumor that A&E told the Robertsons to tone down guns and prayer is not true,” Alan said in an email to TheBlaze, adding the description of “false” to the chatter. “We continue to partner with A&E to make a great tv show that reflects our family’s values.”
Frankly, the cast of Duck Dynasty are MUCH better role models than Honey Boo Boo, Jon and Kate, The Duggars, and much of the Christian Right in this nation.
