Duck Dynasty may have become controversial due to Phil Robertson and his GQ interview, but that does not stop the family from trying to do good in the world despite the protestations of critics. In fact, Phil and Alan Robertson will be lending their support to raising money for Jews in Israel.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Duck Dynasty Season 7 is in the works, and Phil Robertson, Willie, and the rest of the gang were spotted in Scotland filming for new episodes. Willie Robertson also spoke about how the Duck Dynasty ratings drop affected them and also the family’s plans for the Duck Commander line of products.
As everyone probably knows by now, the Robertson family’s devout Christian faith is prominently featured on the Duck Dynasty show, and Phil Robertson has been known to preach at local churches. Tim Tebow has also worked with the Robertson family on various Christian ministry causes and the eldest son, Alan, is a preacher.
The Messianic Jewish Bible Institute has asked Phil and Alan to help raise funds at this year’s annual banquet. Last year, this honor went to former U.S. President George W. Bush and in 2012 they invited Glenn Beck to be a keynote speaker. The organization’s website explained what the event in Fort Worth, Texas, will entail:
“Spend a fun filled evening with the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson, and other stars from the mega hit show, A&E’s Duck Dynasty. They’ll share heartwarming and hysterical stories about filming the show, what goes on behind the scenes, their lives, their faith, their family, and ducks. The event will be unscripted and unrehearsed, so who knows what tales of trials, tribulations and triumphs will be told! They’ll be joined by special musical guests who’ll provide their own special brand of toe tapping fun. Celebrate the simple. Laugh with us. Smile with us. Tap your toes with us. And as Phil says, get ‘HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY.'”
The Messianic Jewish Bible Institute is selling seats named after the Duck Dynasty TV show. An option called “The Commander” costs $10,000, while others like “The Call,” “The Decoy,” and “The Hunter” range from $5,000 down to $1,000. There are also individual seats available for just $100.
