Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. — James 4:10
A humble man doesn’t gloat when he knows he’s won. And so it was with Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson and his wife Korie in their New Year’s Eve interview last night.
As the first members of their clan facing the public since A&E suspended their patriarch Phil Robertson for speaking his religious values in a GQ interview, Will and Korie Robertson definitely took the high road.
Rather than taking swipes at A&E for their actions, the Robertson’s let their fans do the talking — which they did in a massive backlash that forced A&E to back down. Instead they stayed positive, emphasizing family and their desire to continue their runaway hit show in the new year. Despite the best attempts of the Fox hosts to get them to engage the controversy (and despite technical glitches), the Robertsons would say only that they “have learned a lot” from the incident and would use it to remain stronger in the future.
The ‘Duck Dynasty’ family continues to go against the conventional wisdom, reflecting their Biblical values and positive attitude, earning increasing respect among their millions of fans.
