Duck Dynasty Mom: Alan Was Born Out of Wedlock, He’d Say, ‘The ‘B------ in the Family’

CNSNews.com) – Duck Dynasty matriarch Marsha ‘Kay’ Robertson said her oldest son, Alan, was born out of wedlock, two years before she and Phil Robertson were legally married, and that because of this, Alan Robertson says, “Yeah, I would be the B[astard] in the family.”

Alan Robertson, who has been married to his wife Lisa for 29 years, is a Christian minister and he also now stars in the popular reality-TV show Duck Dynasty, with his other family members and relatives.

Kay Robertson, or Miss Kay, disclosed the details about her marriage and Alan’s out-of-wedlock birth in a special edition of US Weekly magazine, published on Monday, June 30.

Miss Kay reveals that when she was 16, in 1964, she “made a vow to God” and to Phil Robertson, but this was an informal ceremony, not a legal marriage.

Why can’t we use the correct term, “bastard”, anymore?

(I know, I know... we’re not to shame anyone for sexual choices.)

Obviously the Libtards will call 'em hypocrites.

But what they miss is the message that as humans we are not perfect, sinners, but seek to embrace & live a God inspired life.

Sounds like the bastard has a sense of humor. :)

(Isn’t that how they talk down there? Seinfeld reference.)

But they certainly aren't. Phil never shirks away from acknowleging the unregnerate lifestyle he lived before finding the Lord.

On the 2008 campaign trail, Obama told an audience that he supported sex education that included information about contraception and abortion because, “I don’t want [my daughters] punished with a baby.”

Good thing for Alan, Ms Kay is of a very different mind-set!

I was born Feb. 1965 seven months after my parents were married in July 1964. She was 17 and my Dad was 19.

The libtards hate them for not getting an abortion.

She devoted her whole life to her husband and her family. She made a vow to God and she kept it. It's a good example of Christian love.

I gotta ask...where was the state/gummint when God brought Eve to Adam and said, “be fruitful and multiply”?.
What specific “rite” was performed to recognize Adam & Eve as “married”.
hmmmm?

Maybe there was some objective interaction between Adam, Eve and God that would...ahem...consummate...such a “cojoining unto marriage”?

Because it’s a cruel term that denigrates the dignity of the innocent child. I will never understand the pleasure some people get out of calling a baby, whose parents were not married at his or her birth, a bastard. People who engage in reckless, careless or immoral behavior should be the one called bastards: bastard parents. When you put the shame on the child, it creates an environment where the child is unwanted and shunned. Shame can be a motivator into getting adults to do the proper thing, but it is an evil thing to shame an faultless child.

The Roberts aren’t doing anyone favors by calling their firstborn an bastard. Marriage after a child’s birth or adoption of a child by others because the parents were unmarried does not make a child “illegitimate.” I also will never understand why some view children of divorce as an acceptable casualty of the modern world, but “illegitimate” children can be reviled for what they have no control over. Address the comments to the parents, not the children.

Could it be that certain races have 70% out of wedlock?

I don’t care what anyone did as long as they truly repented. Liberals don’t understand what repentance is.

you have identified the reason for abortions during prior decades. Some shame was placed on the woman, some on her family and if the child was not aborted, he or she was burdened with the total shame of being ‘a bastard’.

Seems as if there was no shame attached to the sperm donors.

Young couples who were caught and scared - rushed to the altar and called their first-borns ‘premature’.

With the removal of ‘shame’ for unwed mothers you would expect fewer abortions.

I read the article and the Robertsons didn't call Alan a bastard, Alan (tongue in cheek) called himself that. Beside that, it isn't a new revelation. I read about this a couple years ago.

Correct. The problem is instead of focusing on both progenitors doing the right thing, the idea of shame--for anything--was done away with altogether when Government became the new god.

Sex before marriage? Almost everyone does it. You should be ashamed if you're not.

Getting pregnant outside marriage? An oopsie, but understandable. Now fill out those welfare forms.

Abortion? Well the government sanctions that, shame doesn't even come into the equation.

Going from one extreme to another didn't make these situations any better. Myself, I like Christ's solution of "Leave the little children alone, and don't try to keep them from coming to me," and "Go and sin more."

Phil never shirks away from acknowledging the unregenerate lifestyle he lived before finding the Lord.

No, but he promotes teenage marriage, as if that had worked out really great for him and Miss Kay, instead of being just about a disaster. I won't say that's "hypocrisy," but it's certainly "selective memory" or not thinking things through all the way.

Miss Kay wrote, in a sidebar in Phil's book, that she believed he ran wild when he got to college because all the other football players were drinking and partying ... only Phil was an 18-year-old college football player with a wife and children. He did not accept the responsibility of the role he had freely chosen, and bad results ensued.

I had a similar experience in my own marriage. When my husband finished graduate school, he was 34 with a wife and three children. His peers at work were 24 and single, and he felt very put-upon at not having the freedoms they did ... even though he'd already had his turn to be 24 with no dependents.

Fair enough, I shouldn’t have been so harsh. But Alan’s not a bastard, and as his parents did the right thing and have raised a great family, neither are they.

The problem is that “bastard” shames the offspring, not the people responsible. I don’t think any bastard child has ever had a choice to make in the matter. I don’t like the term at all.

We could call the male progenitor the “sperm-scatterer.”

It used to be that the parent/mother and her family were shamed as well, and that was an incentive to protect their daughters. Also, families cared about the offspring and NOT having them shamed with the brand of “bastard”.

Now we have “Generation B”, with children with married parents in the minority.

So they just secretly aborted the little bastards. Avoided shame.
