Hopes that "Duck Dynasty" fans may have had in seeing the show head to Washington have been dashed after Alan Robertson said that his father Phil Robertson had no interest in running for Congress.
After a poll released earlier this week suggested that the Duck Commander founder could be a formidable competitor against current Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), his son quickly shot down any speculation that his father, 67, would be willing to run.
"While Phil is humbled and honored that so many fellow Louisianans have confidence in him, he has no interest in running for public office," Alan told The Hill in an email. "He is interested in helping the electorate know more about the gospel of Christ, so they, in turn, can elect more godly men and women to serve and lead our great country." more >>

An online debate is currently waging over an immensely generous tip left at a restaurant in Washington, D.C., where Willie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty," television host Sean Hannity and other politicians were dining on the night of the State of the Union address in late January.
According to photos posted on social media, Robertson and his wife, Korie, attended a dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House in D.C. with Hannity, host of his own talk show on Fox News, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), radio talk show host Mark Levin and former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, and his wife Callista.
The high-profile diners reportedly racked up a large bill during their dinner, owing a $5,000 tab after they had finished their meal at 2 a.m., far after the restaurant had officially closed. According to TMZ, Willie Robertson, who is CEO of the family's "Duck Commander" duck call business, paid the bill in full. Additionally, he left the two waiters serving the table a $5,000 tip, or 100 percent. more >>

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – Faith, family values, and quality entertainment took center stage at the 22nd Annual Movieguide Awards on Friday evening. Celebrities and lesser-known movie, TV, and music industry people shared their appreciation for being able to celebrate the things in life they cherish most.
Joni Eareckson Tada, who was there to perform the title song from "Alone Yet Not Alone," told The Christian Post that although she was out of her element at the splashy event because she is primarily a Christian disabilities advocate, she said she was appreciative of Movieguide and its goals.
"I think we are at a point in our country where people are becoming weary, they're becoming tired of media messages, and movies that degrade the human spirit, that defame the human heart, that weigh people down, that reinforce hopelessness and despair, people are looking for a change from that," Tada explained while participating in the red carpet portion of the evening. "I think that the popularity of the song and its Oscar nomination has underscored that people are looking for a change. more >>
While two polygamist families are attempting to prove critics wrong and convince people that they live a normal lifestyle, at least one former polygamist wife is speaking out against the practice. The state of Utah recently ruled that a law against cohabitation was a violation of the First Amendment's right to freedom of religion, allowing polygamist families more freedom.
Marion Munn was part of a plural marriage for 18 years after converting to Mormon fundamentalism. Munn was not happy with the arrangement and is now speaking out about the dangers of the polygamist lifestyle.
"The only way that I can explain it is like living with adultery on a daily basis, and having the woman come home. On top of that you have to smile and pretend that everything's okay because that's part of the culture too. So for me going into it, I didn't personally want to live it, but I felt compelled to as a matter of faith," Munn told Daily Mail. more >>
