A&E favorites the Robertsons to bring their Christian faith, family values and gun rights platform to fans

The bearded brothers, the Robertsons from A&E's "Duck Dynasty" may look fearsome but deep down they have a positive Christian message to share with the world. They may just exchange their world famous duck calls for altar calls as they embark on the lecture circuit to share their message of Christian faith to fans.

The Duck Dynasty clan warns against 'political correctness trumping Biblical correctness.'

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The conservative clan has already spent much of the summer doing the rounds on the speaking circuit, meeting with everyone from Tim Tebow to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to Sarah Palin.

They were recently honored at Rick Warren's church for a congregation-wide "Duck Dynasty" day as the family spread the word about their Christian faith coupled -- not surprisingly with the right to bear arms.

Family patriarch Phil Robertson, the family's evangelist, joined forces with his oldest son, Alan, a Church of Christ minister to headline Warren's event on July 21.

The duo warned the crowd against "political correctness trumping Biblical correctness."

Among cable TV's most watched programs, the "Duck Dynasty" runs a multi-million dollar hunting goods company. They now produce everything from camo-emblazoned Christian devotionals, cigars, onesies bearing the Duck Commander logo and duck calls that retail from $9.95 to $179.95.

Phil, who began the duck call manufacturing operation from meager beginnings in 1972, appears on the show with his wife, Miss Kay, and his hilarious brother with a sweet tea addiction, Si.

Three of Phil's four sons - Jase, Willie and the youngest, Jep have all appeared on the show since the first season.

Alan is the eldest Robertson and the only non-bearded one in the mix and has just left his work at the local church to help his family manage their new fame. Describing himself as the "normal one," he will be joining the fourth season of the show, which premieres August 14.

Unapologetic rednecks, the Robertsons have not allowed their stardom get to their heads but have become some of the most sought after stars for engagements far and away from their home base of Monroe, Louisiana.

Willie Robertson, the family's third born who runs the Duck Commander Company rubbed shoulders with GOP darlings at the NRA convention last May. He was even rumored to be under consideration to join the gun group's board.

The 41-year-old father of five will return to Nashville in August to deliver an address at the Cornerstone church, where an estimated 10,000 are expected to attend.
