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

Love this show.  Keep it up, boys!  Sourced from :

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, , “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 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.’”
