Kay, that is indeed the point. Everybody who has carried on about this show to me, telling me I 'must' watch it, said this because they said they were excited about a 'Christian reality show' being on TV. This was their exact point. And this is why I was disappointed in the show. I honestly think it would be better if the prayer at the end weren't tacked on, if they were just portrayed as 'regular Americans' on a 'family' oriented show - although some of the things they do and say are not acceptable to me for children to watch.

Don, what brought that last comment on? Good grief, I haven't championed anything like that at all. If you think so, you read a whole lot into my comment(s) that I not only didn't say, but didn't even think. You mentioned Lafayette, LA - a close friend was transferred there a few years ago, and I have visited her there and attended her church. I found the area and people to be very friendly, although I cannot stomach Cajun food (she can't either). The people I met there are not fans of the Duck Dynasty show. They think it's silly. It seems that almost every 'reality' show on TV is better than the Kardashians; they've become a byword to which everybody, even non-Christians, compare TV shows to say they're 'better'. So that's a given. Nothing new there.

Hey Audrey... I do not get the fascination with liberals. They are perverse, support stripping rights from the unborn. They live lives that are dirty, lies, meaningless, support absurd causes.

I would call it a Family Show, Definitely not the Kardashians. Funny how liberals spew hate toward anything that shows family values. They are so open minded and accepting. I stayed 2 weeks in Abbeville and also in Lafayette, LA a while back. I found the people very friendly . My wife and 6 year old love the show. Scripted? lol I think all shows are led in a direction. But scripted? I doubt they would do anything that opposes their Christain Values!

That is the point, it is not a "Christian" show. It is a reality show based on their lives, not on their "Christianity". It is everyone else making a big deal out of that part of it. As I said, they don't hide their faith, but they are not on the reality show because they are Christian. If they are asked about their faith, they talk about it, if they are invited by a church or other organization to speak about their faith they do. But they are not the ones that said "we are Christians and that is what our show is about, so watch". It is others that have made that a huge agenda. As I said earlier, it is a show to watch for fun, and as with any show, some people like it, some don't.
