Inspiring a new generation: Sadie Robertson (above)
One of the teen stars of ‘Duck Dynasty’ says that their show is leading students across the country to pray before meals at school.
Sixteen-year-old Sadie Robertson, daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson, told an audience at a fundraiser for Prattville Christian Academy in Montgomery, Alabama, that the focus on their religious beliefs on the show is a light that others are emulating.
Sadie noted that she and her family have become aware that there are “Duck Dynasty clubs” springing up at many schools across the nation and one goal of these clubs is to encourage kids to pray before meals.
“For a TV show to bring prayer into schools, that’s awesome,” Sadie Robertson told the Montgomery Advertiser.
The Robertson family continues to inspire and lead a renewal of faith in the public realm — a situation that our Founders took for granted — but which has been hammered out of society by a hundred years of hostile Progressive politicians, judges and academics.
Sadie would not comment on the recent controversy with grandfather Phil, A&E and the radical homosexual pressure group GLAAD, but said the family stands behind their patriarch: “we’re really glad for us all to be back together as a family because (Phi Robertson is) the leader. We couldn’t do anything without him.”
Sadie also noted that they’ve almost finished filming the fifth season, which debuts on January 15.
“We’ve already filmed a lot of it, and it’s hilarious stuff,” she said. “I laughed so hard I cried a couple of times. Coming up, we have this paintball gun episode and it is hi-larious, by far my favorite episode, probably.”
School representative Tiffani Thompson said that Sadie Robertson was a perfect fit for the religious-based school’s fundraiser.
“She’s such a great role model for people through her faith, and I hope she inspired a lot of young people,” Thompson said.
