Elsewhere: The Vague Southern God of Duck Dynasty

If you haven’t seen in, Duck Dynasty is an incredibly popular show about the creators of Nintendo’s iconic game, “Duck Hunt.” This “reality” “TV” show follows the family of game designers as they do things, humorously.

One of the most interesting aspects of the show is that the Robertsons are Christians, and they are pretty open about their faith, but Thomas Kidd wonders if the show portrays Christianity, or “cultural Christianity”:

“What the show presents is a good life, but it is not in any specific way the Christian life. It is cultural Christianity of the kind that still characterizes much of the South.”

    at first I thought this was satire — then I realized he was being serious. No, they didnt design the game.
