Editors originally cut out the word Jesus during Duck Dynasty prayers


CBS Houston reports on an interview with Phil Robertson:

Robertson also said that the name Jesus has been cut out during the family’s prayer scene at the end of the show.

“So they would just have me saying, ‘Thank you Lord for the food, thank you for loving us. Amen.’ So I said, ‘Why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name?’ They said, ‘Well those editors are probably doing that. They just think that they don’t want to offend some of the Muslims or something.’”

Robertson said that since that conversation the show has been leaving “Jesus” in the show.

“So I notice now they are … leaving it in there, but you got to remember, spiritual warfare,” Robertson said. “I mean you have people with no moral compass, it ain’t there.”

I had heard there were a lot of games being played by the people doing the show and the cast because of religious things that came up. Things that

the Robertson family would normally do would end up on the editing room floor if they didn’t take extraordinary measures to make their faith more obvious.

Then there’s the whole thing of the editors putting in bleeps when there is no profanity being used:
In an interview with Sports Spectrum TV earlier this year that’s only recently gone viral, Phil Robertson admitted that fake bleeps were inserted into the show even though there was no cursing happening.

“The inserted fake bleeps … like somebody had used profanity, but no one had used profanity,” Robertson said. “I ask those guys that produce the show … ‘What’s the point of the fake bleeps?’”
