Dog the Bounty Hunter Encourages People to Seek a Middle Ground Amid Cancel Culture

By Movieguide® Staff

Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, recently said that cancel culture “is losing its grip” and is on its way out in society.

The reality TV star is open about his Christian faith and says there is an opportunity to find a middle ground.

“The Bible says we’re all created equal, but we’re not all alike,” he said on The Prodigal Stories Podcast. “You can take a guy, say from the Deep South that’s an alligator hunter, and tell that to a stock-broker guy in New York. And he’ll think that that stupid hillbilly is the dumbest man he ever met, and that alligator hunter will say, ‘Well, that sissy stock-market punk,’ right? When you put them together, and you find a subject that they both agree upon — I’ve done this — the New York guy said, ‘My God, what a friend.’ The Alabama guy said, ‘Man, them New Yorkers are OK. You know, they get it.’”

“That’s what keeps my faith going, going, going,” he added.

Chapman, who went to prison in the 1970s, credited God’s grace for his faith.

“I started pretending to be good, and then all of the sudden, I started being good,” he recalled of his conversion. “Recently, I’ve found, no matter how good you are and act and be and do, you’re not gonna do that. No matter how good you are, you ain’t gonna make me good, because we’re born sinners.”

Chapman recognized the need to stand for Jesus in a lost society.

“I have been through many generations, but this is the first time that when you look through Scripture and you can see that we’ve begun the End Times,” he said. “The Bible says, at the End Times, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy’ (Acts 2:17). And there are so many young kids where it’s just incredible, they’re experiencing the pouring out of God’s Spirit.”

“When sin starts to abound, and never have we seen sin abound like this, ever, that’s another sign,” he added. “But on the flip side of the coin, you’re getting a lot of people coming to God right now.

“I want people to know I stand for God,” he said. “And I believe God is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh like never before, and I’m excited to be a part of that.”
