Family Ministries Cancels ‘Duck Dynasty’ Event Because Robertsons Have Wine Deal

Family Ministries in Bristol, Tenn has just cancelled a planned event with “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson. With everyone around globe wanting to book these guys for events right now, why would do such a thing? Wine, that’s why.

Last week the Robertson family announced their latest product, Duck Commander Wines. Apparently, Family Ministries is not ok with that, so they’ve cancelled Willie Robertson’s appearance. According to the Ministries, Duck Commander Wines goes against the organization’s core values.

From foxnews.com :

“Our greatest responsibility is to the young people we serve. Therefore, we feel that in light of the recent news, to continue with this event would send mixed messages to the young people who go through our Adolescent Drug and Alcohol program,” Derek Bell, director of development for Family Ministries stated. “Our message must be consistent. The lives of those children may well hang in the balance.  We certainly apologize to the people who have already purchased tickets, and pray they understand our position.”

Some folks are upset because this was going to be a fund raising event for the church, and the Duck Dynasty star was sure help raise quite a bit of money the church needed. The ministry was expecting a predominately younger attendance, which ultimately led to the decision to cancel the event.
