Skip to comments.Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson shows what's wrong with conservatives

We already knew he was racist and homophobic. Now it emerges that he thinks girls should marry at 15 or 16.
Know what? If you had told me, a month ago, that the Christian Right would have a strong reaction to a bearded religious zealot in a headscarf urging men to take child brides, I'd have believed that. And I would have believed that the man's family would go on Fox News to defend him, but I would have assumed they were doing it from a bunker somewhere, with voice filters and behind a screen not in the studio on New Year's Eve.
Yet this is how things are playing out in the aftermath of footage showing Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson advising young men to "marry girls when they are about 15 or 16", after, of course, "making sure she can cook a meal". "You need to eat some meals that she cooks. Check that out," he said to an audience at a Christian retreat in 2009. "Make sure she carries her Bible," he added. "That will save you trouble down the road."
I suppose it depends on how you define "trouble" Robertson implies that it has to do with the little lady (or, better said, barely pubescent child) wanting some kind of monetary compensation for her labor ("you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket"). It also depends on which version of the Bible she has. Better hope she skips the part where it says, "there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ!" Actually, there a bunch of sections you should edit out.

And we cannot allow people to think wrong thoughts.
We already know Ana Marie Cox is an idiot, so I don’t see why I should read her article.
Gee Anna Marie you couldn’t find anything better to write about?
Why don’t you try getting angry over the teens that Planned parenthood do abortions for when they are 14 and they lie to keep the father out of jail.
The Guardian makes the New York Times look like US News & World Report in the old days. If you’re over 45, you’ll get the reference.
My Uncle was 16 and my Aunt 14 when they were married about 70 years ago.
The Guardian is my favorite go-to for crazy, left-wing diatribes! They get the worst writers for their CiF. I wish more freepers would post from that hysterical rag.
Wonder of the author would criticize gay men having sex with 25 or 16 year old boys?
I believe the UK lowered their age of consent to 14 recently to make life easier for gay pedophiles and Muslim old goats, so what’s this beotch talking about?
Try and catch this guy's "musings" sometimes. You'll have a hard time believing it isn't satire.
What will be the outcome of mischaracterizing and attacking tens of millions of Americans basic moral belief? Leftist like to think they are smart but they don’t know the difference between tactic and strategy.
It has been well established that Phil Robertson as joking when he says this!
What an ill-informed writer....... as usual!
Did he really say that? No wonder the gays think he's latent -- he shares their distaste for women.
70% illegitimacy, racist preference programs, the welfare state, barack obama, eric holder, kagan and sotomayor, trillion dollar deficits, Islam asskissing, 1 million + abortions/yr, crapped out schools and neighborhoods, AIDS, laziness, selfishness, broken marriages, NAMBLA, GLAAD, naacp, communists, marxists, hate filled name calling, atheists, bigots, hypocrites, the Kennedys, the Clintons . . .
Yeah, we all know what’s wrong with liberals
And yet it’s perfectly fine for temporary mooseSlime marriages to 6 year olds, what with their culture being superior like the Nazis.
Cox was married to Chris Lehmann, formerly of The Washington Post, New York, and Congressional Quarterly. They divorced sometime in 2011. In 2009 on an Amtrak train from New York to Washington Cox had a severe allergic reaction after eating a lentil salad. Fox News host Greta Van Susteren saw her choking and came to her aid with Benadryl, after which Cox recovered. Cox later personally thanked Van Susteren for saving her life.
Only had to go 1 sentence before you realize she is a bigoted Marxist.
Pray America is Waking Up
No, after 4 years of being trained by their teachers, peers, and media, it takes a really rare lady to reject that and select honest, chaste, ladylike behavior.
It wasn’t always so. American culture seems to be toxic, but I home school my kids, and try to protect them from the
‘sex in the city’ kind of shows.
Ya, I’ve heard that Muslims allow for temporary marriages. And they do this, so they can consummate a marriage which begins and ends the same day. It’s basically prostitution but under a different name.
