Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson is back at it, reports Yahoo! OMG on Monday. The wounds have not even begun to scab over after the patriarch’s controversial interview with GQ, but Robertson once again has made a cannonball splash with his obtuse remarks.
This time, the 67-year-old Duck Dynasty reality star is talking teens – “wed them,” he says, and make sure they can cook.
On Dec. 23, Robertson said he was not backing down from his previous foot-in-mouth comments, despite his contentious remarks and his subsequent suspension from the popular A&E series.
Robertson initially talked gays and lesbians, saying that “everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine… Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
Then he started talking about slavery, and remarked that he had never seen any mistreatments of blacks in the pre-civil rights era of Louisiana, his home state.
Jesse Jackson didn’t like that of course, and it didn’t take long for the activist to weigh in on the hullabaloo:
Has Robertson gone too far this time?
In a newly surfaced 2009 video posted on YouTube, Robertson shares some of his dating advice, which includes a suggestion that men should marry young girls at the tender age of 15.
"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."
Robertson says the good ones go early, and men have to get their women while the picking is good.
"Look, you wait 'til 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."
In the state of Louisiana, girls can wed at 16 legally, with consent from the parents.
