The son of “Duck Commander” Phil Robertson compared his father to John the Baptist at the Family Research Council’s “Watchmen on the Wall 2014″ event earlier this week.
“My dad has the heart and mindset of a prophet and is most compared to John the Baptist … for speaking the truth in a culture that isn’t prepared to hear truth,” Alan Robertson said.
“That doesn’t change my dad’s view at all. Prophets tend not to care about their public image. They tend to talk about their judgment as if it’s real and they speak what God gives them to speak…so he is, in that sense, a 21st century prophet.”
Robertson characterized his father as having a “peel-the-paint message of the good news and a reminder of what our country was founded on and why.”
He recalled that before the controversy over Phil Robertson’s comments comparing homosexuality to bestiality and terrorism erupted, “our local newspaper guy came up to me and said, ‘Al, we got a problem. If this gets out, you guys are in trouble. This is going to cause you guys a lot of grief because this message is not politically correct. Well,” he continued, “in December it did hit the fan and it hasn’t changed us one bit about who we are and what we believe.”
