There are a few basic rules I think we should all accept: Anyone who declares themselves to be an alpha male isn’t one (and there isn’t such a thing anyway); anyone who declares themselves to be humble isn’t; and anyone who says they or someone they love is a prophet, they’re completely full of shit. Like the Duck Dynasty guy.
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 then said that his father is a “culture-changer,” like the biblical prophets Elijah and Jonah, and the message he took from the controversy surrounding his father’s comments was “to learn from these prophets. I want to encourage you guys to tell the truth. As a family, we’re going to do that.”
No, he isn’t a prophet. He’s a bigot. And the bigots are losing this battle. Hell, they’ve already lost it. You aren’t changing the culture, the culture is changing without you. Just like it did with George Wallace and so many others.
