Alan Robertson, the eldest son of the Robertson clan is proud of his father, Phil. Speaking at a Watchmen on the Wall conference May 22 the beardless Robertson brother spoke of his father in Biblical terms comparing him to John the Baptist reports Radaronline.com.

“My dad, Phil Robertson, has the heart and the mindset of a prophet… long hair, long beard, naturally camouflaged, he ate off the land and he pointed people to Christ,” he said.

“He was a voice of one, calling in the wilderness, prepare the way for the Lord.”

Robertson also noted that John the Baptist was a martyr much like the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch.

“He [John] also lost his head for speaking the truth in a culture that really wasn’t prepared to hear truth,” he said.

“And yet, you know what — that doesn’t change dad’s view at all. Prophets tend to not care about their public image, they tend to talk about judgment as if it’s real and they speak what God gives them to speak and that’s what my dad does… so he is in that sense a 21st Century prophet.”

Robertson also recalled one of the first times cameras captured the family saying a prayer around the table when his father added a coda onto the usual blessings.

“Lord, I just pray today for this group that’s here from Hollywood, California,” Robertson recalled with a laugh. “I pray that they repent and turn to you before you burn them all in the end.”
