MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A teenager on TV’s "Duck Dynasty" says the reality show is leading students to pray before lunch at schools across the country.

Sixteen-year-old Sadie Robertson told an audience in Montgomery on Sunday that young people are forming "Duck Dynasty clubs" to pray before lunch at school. She said it’s an awesome thing for a TV show to be able to bring prayer into schools.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that Robertson made the comments during a fundraiser for Prattville Christian Academy.

She said her family has decided not to talk about the controversy resulting from comments about gay people made by her grandfather, Phil Robertson. She said the family, of West Monroe, La., is glad to be back together because Phil Robertson is the leader and they couldn’t do anything without him.
