More Controversy for Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Thanks to New Video
Another controversy may be brewing for Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Just two weeks after his interview in GQ where he made anti-gay comments went public, a 2009 video of the 67-year-old A&E star preaching has surfaced.
In the video, Phil tells a Christian congregation in Georgia that guys should marry girls as young as 15 and 16 years old.
Robertson says, “Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now, that’s a woman.”
He explained further: “They got to where they getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting till they get to be about 20 years old before they marry them.”
Robertson then added, “Look, you wait till they get to be 20 years old the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks. You need to check with Mom and Dad about that, of course.”
The Robertson family patriarch also shared that he once gave dating advice to a man, telling him, “Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out.”
Robertson was briefly suspended by A&E following his GQ comments. He was reinstated on Friday, Dec. 27.
Tonight, Duck Dynasty cast members Willie Robertson and wife Korie Robertson will discuss the matter on the network’s All-American New Year special at 8 p.m.
