Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson is back in the headlines for a newly surfaced video.
The 2009 footage, which was posted on YouTube, shows Phil Robertson speaking at a Christian retreat in Georgia. During the speech, the Duck Dynasty patriarch tells a story about advising a young man to find a good Christian girl and marry her.
“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,” Phil Robertson said.
Phil Robertson then went on to say that men should wed girls who are young.
“They got to where they’re getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting ‘til they get to be about 20 years old before they marry ’em,” he said.
“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.”
Phil Robertson married Miss Kay when she was just 16-year-old. In the state of Louisiana, such unions are legal with parental consent.
