Alan Robertson compares Phil Robertson to 21st century prophet

More controversy may be heading toward the Duck Dynasty family again. This time, Radar Online reports that Alan Robertson refers to his father, Phil Robertson as a prophet. At a conference at the Watchmen on the Wall, Alan called Phil a saint. He said that his dad has the heart and mindset of a modern day prophet. Of course, the comparison with other Bible legends didn’t end there.

Alan said that John the Baptist resembled Phil in looks. "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 was a voice of one, calling in the wilderness, prepare the way for the Lord.”

Alan said that Phil speaks the words that God wants him to say. Just like prophets of old, Phil doesn't care about his public image and he talks about judgement as if it is real. Fans of the Robertsons notice that Phil and his family stand strong on their faith in God. This is pronounced throughout the show, but it becomes apparent at the show's end when the family gathers at the dining room table for a meal. They always say a prayer, giving thanks to God for all His blessings.

“Duck Dynasty" was renewed by A&E for another season with the premier episode on June 11. Many fans may remember the interview Phil gave to GQ when he compared homosexuals to bestiality. He was fired from the show until loyal fans petitioned the station to bring him back. It only took nine days for the producers to back down and reinstate Phil on the show.

What do you think? Is he a modern day prophet or is the family going just a bit too far in their beliefs?
