No need to idolize Robertson women

Follow The Republic:

Korie Robertson and her relatives’ lives sometimes are followed by millions, courtesy of their top-rated A&E show, “Duck Dynasty.”

Robertson (pictured), who will speak in Columbus 7 p.m. Aug. 23 at “A Night With Duck Dynasty,” readily acknowledged recently that much of the show’s appeal is the family’s Christian faith, symbolized weekly by their gathering around the table for prayer.

But the right-hand woman to husband Willie Robertson, CEO of the exploding Duck Commander duck call business, said females and others have no need to idolize the Robertson women, often depicted as strong and resilient in media stories.

“We certainly shouldn’t be idolized,” Robertson said during a recent email interview. “We are just regular people, and anything good you see in us, you should look to the one who lives in us, our heavenly father.”

Korie and her spouse, plus Uncle Si Robertson and brother-in-law Alan Robertson, will speak about their show, their business and their faith 7 p.m.

Aug. 23 at Columbus North High School’s Memorial Gym, 1400 25th St.
