WASHINGTON — Alan Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame and a featured speaker at this year's Values Voter Summit, says his family votes for leaders based on their social values, not fiscal policy.
"I vote per my values, what I believe in," said Robertson, the eldest son of Duck Commander company founder Phil Robertson in an interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
A former senior pastor of White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, Robertson explained that, as conservative Christians, his family tends "to vote more because of our spiritual values than anything else." more >>

The show is already on its third week, with an episode airing on Sept. 25. For the third week, competitors will face a new challenge to gain weigh-in advantages. This time, teams will be answering a nutrition quiz and whenever they get an answer wrong, their trainers will pay the price by eating junk food.
Season 16's contestants are all composed of former athletes and as the week started, the trainers -- Dolvett Quince, Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom -- have transformed one section of the gym into a "Wall of Glory," with photos of the athletes when they were still fit. This brings back a flood of memories for the contentants and the trainers encourages the players to use this as a motivation to get fit again, making a their "glory days" not only a part of their past but also their future. more >>
