In the world of political correctness, nothing is off the table—not even altering the realities of a reality TV show. Duck Dynasty cast members have recently revealed that not only have producers asked them stop praying to Jesus, but also falsely edited in bleeps to make it sound like the cast was swearing.
The cast members are sticking to their guns under the pretense of Matthew 10:33 that states, “Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” The stars believe that the television show doesn’t have the right to tell them what they can or cannot say.
Phil ended up asking producers who they were offending and to their surprise the producers were armed with a response. They said that they themselves—the producer and crew– as well as Muslims were being offended.
The cast also mentioned something that seemed to peeve them, wondering why editors of the show were editing cuss words, that weren’t there. In order to entice more viewers, they replaced ordinary adjectives with bleeps in effort to make it sound as if the cast was using profanities.
Phil asks, “If we’re not using profanity, why make it look like we’re using profanity? What is the point? Why don’t you just run it and say what we say?”
According to Brandon Walker of The Free Patriot:
“The Duck Dynasty Crew was not alone in the use of bleeps when there was not cursing on the set. According to other shows they have found the same thing. Two instances were found in SyFi’s hit Face Off and the show on History Channel called American Pickers. It is unknown if the modern day producers are doing this to make the shows look more ‘edgy’ and to try to attract more audiences or why they would falsely put these in.”
Willie then mentions that they, as well as the rest of the world, are in constant, spiritual warfare. The members of the show had a response to the request of producers—a simple no. They maintain that if producers or viewers don’t like what they have to say, then they have a simple solution; don’t air the show.
The cast says that they’re going to express what they believe regardless of what others say.
Do you believe their stand is commendable?
