New 'Duck' Firestorm: Robertson Says Marry 15-Year-Old Girls

Wednesday, 01 Jan 2014 07:01 AM

Phil Robertson is in hot water again after fancying himself a marriage counselor.

Video footage of the reinstated "Duck Dynasty" star urging attendees at a 2009 Christian retreat to tie the knot with high school age girls of 15 or 16 years old went viral this week.

The main advantage of marrying a woman so young is that she is more willing to pick a husband's ducks than an older woman with a valid driver's license or the ability to legally drink. No, picking ducks is not sexual innuendo — Robertson built his fortune in the duck hunting game and those birds need plucking.

Story continues below video.



"These boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em," Robertson notes in the video. "Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket."

Robertson, who has a 16-year old granddaughter, does say that they should have parental permission to get hitched. He knows firsthand the virtues of getting the wedding out of the way before prom. He married Marsha "Kay" Carroway when she was 16.

In the video, Robertson also offered a "river rat" counseling, saying, "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."

The latest controversy comes after Robertson was briefly suspended from his hit A&E reality show for a GQ interview in which he likened homosexuality to bestiality and said that black cotton pickers he knew in the pre-Civil Rights era South were happy.
