Charisma News Brief: Fans Calling 'Duck Dynasty' Star 'Woke' After Disney Trip

"Duck Dynasty's" Sadie Robertson Huff, daughter of Korie and Willie Robertson, has been called out by her fans as "woke" and saying she is "no longer a Christian" because she chose to take her family on a recent trip to Disney World in Florida.

Many have unfollowed Robertson Huff on social media because of the trip. And while she agrees that Disney is "corrupt" and does stand for things she disagrees with, she is urging Christians to stop engaging in "cancel culture" as many leftists and non-Christians have over the past few years.

On her "Whoa That's Good Podcast," Robertson Huff and her mother Korie warned that "cancel culture" is often "far too extreme."

"Christians are called to be 'in this world and not of the world,'" Robertson Huff says. She invoked Mark 2:13-16, telling believers not to pass "harmful judgment" on others and saying that Jesus ate with tax collectors and sinners but was still sinless.

"We're not saying this is an excuse to go sin," Robertson Huff says. "Jesus did not become less holy when He sat at a table with sinners. He was always holy. But He was still in the presence [of] sinners.

"He's sitting with such unholy people in an unholy place, and they're like, 'You can't be holy if you're there. How could you be with them? How could you recline at the table with them and say that you're God?' But, the thing that Jesus preached and lived is He is holy, and He is always holy, no matter where He is."

Sadie says she "can't obtain holiness without the holiness of God being in my heart. I am not holy because of where I am. I am holy because of who Christ is in me."

And, she contends that going to Disney World "doesn't make her less holy."

The controversy comes on the heels of last week's release of the Robertson's new film, "The Blind."

Robertson Huff says she and her daughter wouldn't go to see some of the latest films that Disney has produced that have promoted homosexuality and other ungodly ideals and that she would never support them.
