Duck Dynasty’s Alan Robertson says his family isn’t going to back down from defending their biblical principles and, if anything, they plan to be even bolder than before after a series of controversies surrounded his father Phil since last month.
In a recent interview with The Christian Post, Alan Robertson said: “We basically stood with dad, and I think he has the right to express his biblical views, as well as his opinions.
“Obviously now, I think A&E is on board with that as well. They reinstated him, which is a good thing. I say now we just try to make a great television show and move forward. We’re going to continue to talk about the Bible and try to help people, like we always have. That really never was in danger of not happening, and all this does it make us more bold to talk to people.”
Last month, after A&E announced that Phil Robertson was suspended indefinitely due to pressure from LGBT activist groups for anti-gay comments he made during GQ magazine interview, the family stood together and announced that they were unwilling to continue Duck Dynasty reality show without the family’s patriarch. Nine days later, A & E announced that Phil Robertson was back on, with Season 5 set to air on January 15, and taping for Season 6 to get underway.
Alan Robertson also said: “Dad is a good, solid Bible man, and so are the rest of us. His views of sharing that haven’t changed and ours haven’t either. The biblical message is not always a popular message. There have been many people throughout history who’ve stood up for God and said what God needed them to say, and it didn’t always mean they were popular because of it.”
