After making racist and homophobic comments in a magazine interview last year, “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson is slated to address the Republican Leadership Conference tomorrow along with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and U.S. Sen. David Vitter, the Louisiana Republican previously embroiled in a prostitution scandal.
Phil’s son Alan Robertson, who at last week’s FRC “Watchmen on the Wall” conference hailed his father as a “21st century prophet” akin to John the Baptist, appeared on American Family Radio last week to claim that his family is in a fight against Satan for influence in the media and culture.
Alan told host Cherylyn LeBon that “there is always going to be a cost for doing the right thing,” referring to his father’s brief suspension from A&E for his remarks about Jim Crow and gay people. “We’re against an enemy that wants to kill and destroy.”
After suggesting that God “raised up” his family to combat purported anti-Christian persecution and promote conservative Christians in Hollywood, he said that the Robertson clan is “part of that process of hopefully taking back some territory that Satan has had for far too long.”
