The outspoken Robertson family from the popular TV show “Duck Dynasty” was on hand to perform the pre-race ceremony before Saturday’s Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, so what could go wrong?
Apparently everything from the pre-race invocation to the national anthem.
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the clan, delivered the following prayer before the race:
“All right Texas, we got here via Bibles and guns, I’m fixin’ to pray to the one who made that possible. Father thank you for founding our nation. I pray Father that we don’t forget who brought us — you. Our faith in the blood of Jesus and his resurrection. Help us Father to get back to that. Help us dear God to understand that the men and women on my right are the U.S. military. On my right and on my left. Our faith in the U.S. military is the reason we are still here. I pray Father that we put a Jesus-man in the White House. Help us do that and help us all to repent, to do what is right, to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.”
