'Duck Dynasty Clubs' Bringing Prayer Into Schools, Says Phil Robertson's Granddaughter

“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson's granddaughter Sadie Robertson, 16, told an audience in Montgomery, Ala. on Sunday that her family's TV show has led to “Duck Dynasty clubs” in schools across the country.

Student members of “Duck Dynasty clubs” pray before lunch at schools, according to Sadie.

“For a TV show to bring prayer into schools, that’s awesome,” she added.

Sadie was speaking at a fundraiser for a private school, Prattville Christian Academy, at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre where seats cost $38.50 to $82.50, reports the Montgomery Advertiser.

For people who wanted to meet Sadie, the cost was $100 per ticket.

Sadie's mother, Korie Robertson, accompanied her daughter on the trip, but didn't appear at the fundraiser.

Sadie was asked about her grandfather's controversial statements about gay people and black people during a GQ Interview in December 2013, but declined to answer, noted USA Today.

“I’m sure we could all say a lot about that, but the family has decided we’re not going to talk about it really,” replied Sadie. “But we will say we’re really glad for us all to be back together as a family because [he’s] the leader. We couldn’t do anything without him.”

I have zero problems with prayer in schools as long as it is not mandatory or led by school officials. Prosthelytizing is not okay in public schools, but praying before lunch, silently or quietly amongst the group is fine. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

Kids praying in school has been going on in schools for a long time, there just wasn't a monetary profit involved. Kids can pray in school asuch as they want, as long as it is not mandated, employee led and does not interfere with classes or safety.

Charging money to meet some "reality" star's grandkid? Tacky as all get out.

A fundraiser is tacky?

Some are. "Reality" tv is tacky as hell and charging money to meet the grandkid of a "reality" star is even more tacky. Surely intelligent people could think up a less tacky way to raise money. They are free to be as tacky as they wish.
