It's easy to see why people would fall for this.  People outraged by freedom of expression is pretty common these days.  But this is not one of those cases.

There is a vicious scam going around on Facebook today, and chances are, especially if you wound up stopping by on this article, you have heard about it.  It’s the little Facebook page that says that the show Duck Dynasty is potentially going to be cancelled because “liberals and atheists” are complaining that too much praying and guns are shown on television during the program.

We did our research and revealed that this was indeed a hoax.  However, we didn’t really need to research it.  Bottom line:  liberals and atheists probably don’t spend a lot of their time watching Duck Dynasty.  If they do, then they are probably not really atheists or liberals, unless they just simply find the show entertaining and not offensive.

Yes we live in a world where people praying on television is more of a concern to the FCC than profanity or lewdness.  Yes, we live in a world where Christianity is being quashed and there is a stigma against it in almost every facet of our culture now, despite the fact that the United States of America remains overwhelmingly majority Christian.  But this Facebook post that is circulating is praying on the attitude of Christians that feel that they are being persecuted against.  The truth is that this post was not created by “liberals and atheists,” but instead, opportunists.  People who know that thousands of Christians will hit the magical “Like” button just because of what the post says.  Later, it will be sold to a business for a fee that will inherit thousands of likes and promptly change the page to something that has nothing to do with Duck Dynasty, Christianity, or guns at all.
