It's actually kind of funny. It's a family-friendly show and they're poking fin at themselves and teh concept of rednecks and hillbillies.
They're clearly not really hillbillies. Most of the Robertson boys are college educated. Without all of the hair and beards they look quite preppy. Their wives are all gorgeous and well put together. Their children are all polite and clean cut.
I know they're very religious.
How would they treat a gay person in their midst? Would they torture and beat him? Or quietly tolerate and accept him?
I'm not familiar with the South.
