Korie Robertson, a star on the hit A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty," says she's proud of her Christian faith, and encourages other Christians to stand up for their beliefs, even when "bullies" try to stop them from doing so.
Robertson was describing how her faith sustains herself and her family in a recent interview, saying that while her success, fame and riches are temporal, her faith is eternal. "God and our faith is what sustains us," Robertson told Fox411's "Faith & Fame" segment. "It's what makes our life good."
Robertson, who was also accompanied in the interview by her husband Willie, went on to say that she and her family don't plan on backing down from expressing their faith any time soon and they encourage other Christians to defend their faith in the face of adversity. more >>

Former "Full House" star Candace Cameron Bure made her dancing debut last night on "Dancing With The Stars." She and partner Mark Ballas hit the dance floor and came away with a good score, but Bure also made sure that Ballas and her fans know that she will not be a "sexy girl" and will remain true to her faith and family throughout the competition.
"The two most important things in my life are my faith and my family and I know that is what is going to get me through this competition. I'm not gonna be your sexy girl, I'm a mom of three kids so I want to look good and feel beautiful, but I will probably stay on the more modest end of costuming," Bure told Ballas in a video clip during "DWTS."
"I won't be the sexiest one out there," Bure later told Us Weekly. "I am a mom and I want to be a good role model for my children and my husband. But I think for each dance we'll wear what reflects the dance but in the most classy way possible. I want to represent all the moms out there and inspire them and encourage them." more >>

HBO's True Detective re-opened the discussion about satanic ritual abuse or SRA by depicting children suffering through these horrific practices in the show's storyline.
This lead to a media frenzy and the resurfacing of past stories that may have been used as inspiration for the plot of season one. Some publications mocked the allegations behind the practice including The Citizen, who blasted True Detective for its depictions of something close to SRA.
"True Detective is a brilliant, compelling drama but, like The Birth of a Nation, its plot depends on exploiting a massive distortion of the historical truth or, less demurely, on transmuting noxious lies about the past into art," wrote Paul Campos regarding the show's depiction of the occult. more >>
Willie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" testified that the forthcoming film "God's Not Dead," which tells the story of a college student who accepts his professor's challenge to provide a defense for the existence of God and the Christian faith, inspired him and strengthened his own faith.
"I was very impressed with how they made the movie," Robertson told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday. "I would definitely say my own faith was strengthened – I was glad to be on the side of the kid defending his faith."
Robertson and his wife Korie play themselves in the film, movie stars interviewed about their faith in God by a reporter also covering the outspoken student's debate with his professor. Since the movie was filmed in separate takes, the actor told CP he had no idea how the story all fit together until he saw the entire film recently. "I thought it was well written and it came together," Robertson said. "It inspired me." more >>
