Phil Robertson

Marry 15-Year-Olds

They Clean Ducks Good

12/31/2013 6:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Reinstated "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson thinks guys should marry 15 or 16-year-old girls because when they get any older they become gold diggers.

Another video of Phil's preachin' has surfaced ... and in this one he implores his followers to marry young girls because "They'll pick [clean] your ducks."  He goes on with a cautionary message:  "You wait till they get to be 20 years old ... the only pickin' that's gonna take place is your pocket."

So we gotta ask ...

He married his wife when he was 20 and she was 16 you guys are just drugging up old news to try and get people not to like him. he got back on his show get over it. let it go. he has said similar stuff on the show he is an old man set in his ways. its not like he is a young guy saying it. people are way to sensitive just ignore it. My grandparents have screwy ideas about things too. I just ignore it they are old thats how they were raised and you can talk until your blue in the face and they wont change their minds.

He was 17 and she was 16 when they got married. His comment about marrying young is an old country saying. He explains it in his "I Am Second" video. Not saying I agree or disagree, but he did grow up in a different world than any of us. Watch the video.

Have you listened to the whole sermon? Growing up in church & hearing sermons my whole life, its easy to shine a light on a few sentences and take it completely out of context. A sermon sermon is 30+ minutes of various points to communicate a single message. Phil's message wasnt to have older men marring 15/16 year olds. Use your common sense & think about the person & their character before rushing to judgement. He id a God fearing man who loves his family & community. I believe he is a man who practices what he preaches & dont think he would be okay with a grown man swooping in to marry Sadie & make her a slave. Come on TMZ, I expect better reporting from you.

Why not? This clown has become the new moral compass for America, feed him another million bucks or so. In the meantime, people struggle to get on with their lives and make ends meet. When what morons like this say becomes important to America, it is surely a signal that the "dwindling spiral" is still in "dwindle mode."

I guess its better to screw your way through your twenties, live with your girlfriend/boyfriend, then marry them, then 4 years later find out you are not so alike after all (all the screwing fogged up your mental windshield) then divoroce, hookup up for awhile and then marry again. Then after a few years, get bored, have a mindlife crisis and have an affair with your younger secretary and marry her. Maybe she will stay with you, maybe she will trade you in.

Phil married at 20 and has been married 47 years. Id say thats preferable to the first scenario.

He married young and if you notice in the video posted he chuckles and says you need to check with Mom and Dad first of course. Give it a rest already, everyone is determined to find something wrong with this family and trust me if you dig deep into any family you will always find something.

you know why these liberals hate Duck Dynasty....because they represent everything the controlled Obama media doesn't want you to have. a family that supports itself and gets along, a family that loves god , a family that doesn't care about the current government, a family that loves this country, a family that speaks out against gays and other forms of division amongst us. you see. the liberal agenda does not like this family....this is why you see all this stupid crap on sitre like tmz.....o yea did i mention...they have the hugest following of any show3 out there times 20? hmmmm no wonder we have to get rid of them and make them look like idiots........KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ROBERTSON FAMILY......THE REAL AMERICANS LOVE YOU!!!

Well this isn't news. He's said it 3 or 4 times on duck dynasty. You are trying to make out he said it to a group of 50 year olds to marry a 15 year old. He was talking to his teenage grandson who was 17. GLADD grasping here

I think people are missing the point of the message. Marry someone that will pick your ducks,not interested in picking your wallet. Find someone that loves you enough to do things for you to make you happy, even the gross stuff, and you have found a good partner. I see his point that young girls are more willing to please their partners. With that said, Phil is very lucky that his relationship has lasted as long as it did since he married his wife so young. Many of them don't when they get married at an early age. They have no clue what they are doing or what they sign up for.. He was lucky to find his soulmate the first time. If you follow what he says without the age thrown in there, it's good advice. Find someone that is willing to do for their partners; men go out and hunt and bring home the food for the family and the wife prepares the feast. Or visa versa. Let's face it, we want our partners to cook well too. Wow, TMZ is saying people should not take offense or take them so literal on a rape headline they meant as a joke, but they slaughter Phil for his OPINIONS...
I don't agree with people getting married at 15, but that is not the point AND it was an ANALOGY to get a message to the parish, he may even believe the theory, but he has a right to believe what he wants, just like everyone else.
