“Duck Dynasty” Star Phil Robertson Thinks 15 Is The Perfect Age For A Girl To Get Married
We already knew Phil Robertson was an unrepentant bigot who believes gay sex is sorta like bestiality and compared gays to terrorists. But it turns out his born-again Christian beliefs are actually more extremist and, frankly, creepy than previously thought. He believes girls should be married off at age 15.
In a 2009 video from something called the Sportsmen’s Ministry, Phil Robertson doled out dating and marriage advice. Some of his tips may be retroactive but not entirely controversial for the evangelical Christian community, but then he suggests men marry underaged girls. (He himself married his wife when she was 16 and he was 20.)
Via Raw Story:
“Make sure that she can cook a meal, you need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out. 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. … They got to where they’re getting hard to find. … Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry ‘em. Look, you wait until 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.”
If by “check with mom and dad” Phil Robertson means “get legal permission because it is ILLEGAL,” then yes, you should “check with” mom and dad. And then maybe mom and dad will check with the police department.
