'Duck Dynasty' Star

My Dad Is a Prophet and a Martyr!

5/28/2014 5:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

052814_alan_robertson_launch
"Duck Dynasty" star Alan Robertson is defending his dad Phil Robertson's controversial views on homosexuality ... and even thinks his pops is "a 21st Century prophet."

As we told you ... the elder Robertson doubled down last month on the homophobic remarks he made to GQ magazine ... with a new fiery sermon on Easter Sunday.

Alan -- who's also a preacher -- spoke up for his father at a religious event earlier this month in D.C. ... and likened Phil to John the Baptist. Alan said Phil "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."

The clean-shaven Robertson bro also compared fans flocking to the family compound ... to a modern day religious pilgrimage.

he is just a sad old deluded redneck - no body listens to or cares about his opinions. He's just a reality television participant for goodness sake.

Let him speak and I actually like this family. Call them what you want and they have a right to their beliefs and their opinion. More power to them!

Look if your gay that's fine I'm all for gay marriage, my daughter just came out last week but everyone has the right to their own opinions and we shouldn't have to censor ourselves for fear of someone taking it personally.

God isn't real. Everyone is just so scared to die and there be nothing after that so we made up this higher power to keep humans under control. It's funny how religion preaches equality and treating people fair, but are the first to judge

True prophets and martyrs don't go around getting their relatives or even themselves saying so. They just preach and say what they believe and if a great majority follow/believe in them, then they are probably prophets.

Phil "has the heart and the mindset of a prophet … long hair, long beard... sounds a lot like Charles Manson!

He's entitled to his opinion on any issue, just like you are. If you don't like it, turn the channel! Or is Hitler in charge here?
