The Real Housewives of Duck Dynasty


Sep 5 2013
Behind every strong redneck duck-hunter is a strong Christian woman.

By no means do the Robertson women represent the diverse spectrum of womanhood as God created us, but they do make some space for it. Rather than conform to the arguably narrower depiction of womanhood that pervades American media, the Robertson women remind us of a different way. Women come in all shapes and sizes—both figuratively and literally—so following Christ is not a call to conform to any stereotype or cultural expectation. It's a single call to conform to Christ, but it manifests in surprisingly diverse ways.

Who better to remind us of this truth than some wild men in the wilderness? After all, they wouldn't be the first.
