Controversy about freedom of speech

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

While they could try, I don’t think anyone could win an argument by saying that the Robertson family has had no impact on North Louisiana.
Love them or hate them, millions of people across the country have eyes on us because of the family that loves ducks almost as much as they love Jesus.
So, whenever I hear that one of the family members is going to be honored or recognized in some way, I’m not surprised.
