Skip to comments.Phil Robertson's son defends him on teen brides
Posted on 01/04/2014 1:50:06 AM PST by NetAddicted
Phil Robertson's opinions on gays, black people and young men marrying girls as young as 15 years old have dominated the media over the past few weeks.
The controversy surrounding the "Duck Dynasty" star began during an interview with GQ magazine late last year in which he compared gay people to terrorists and claimed black people were "happy" and "singing" under racist Jim Crow laws.
According to The Huffington Post, an unearthed 2009 sermon (video below) from a sportsmen's ministry event in Georgia features Robertson advocating young men marrying girls at 16 and 15 years old because the young ladies will become gold diggers by the time they reach 20.
"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, preached Robertson. Look, you wait til they get to be 20 years old the only picking thats going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. Theyll pick your ducks."

I knew one person who got married when she was 15, when I knew her, several years later, she was very happy. She was also very religious. And yes, she got married with her parents’ permission.
Obama's (former) "Safe School Czar" Kevin
"use a condom" Jennings
From the Washington Times...
EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009
A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar".
According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. ..."
On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated." ..."
Homosexuality is scatological.
About a decade ago, a young lady I know married her feller--with her parents' permission, and they were happy until he was killed in an auto accident. She was 16 when they married, widowed at 19. Had they waited, they would not have had the time together they did.
Now, perhaps these are exceptions, but girls seem to be developing physically at a younger age lately. Nature is not so patient as a lawbook. Pity so many lack the maturity to go with their maturity.
By young men he likely meant guys in their 17s, 18s or 19s marry these 15-16 year old girls. Completely different situation from Obama's former "Safe School Czar" Kevin Jennings advocating sex between young boys and grown men.
...young UNDER-AGED boys
A cleaned up synopsis of what Phil said about queers.
I personally don't think blacks can claim outrage, when they call each other that all the time. I spent a lot of time in Louisiana. The Cajuns call themselves coon asses. It is a word they use and it is not used as something derogatory.
Growing up the "N" word was used to describe sorry people. Yes low life whites were called that. It had nothing to do with the color of a persons skin.
Getting back to Cajuns, they have a saying that fits most of this whole Duck Dynasty nonsense. "HOOKY JUNK"
The Robertsons are NOT Cajuns, they are just LA Folk.
Cajuns were thrown out of Canada and settled in the swamps of LA Around New Orleans to baton Rouge.
They are good people. If they are your friend, you couldn't ask for a better friend. If they are you enemy, Look Out. You couldn't ask for a worst enemy. Kinda like me.
Yep... scrotum lover.
Why did we toss the Cajuns out?
The media is throwing everything against the wall and trying to make something stick. Their thinking is something like this...If this doesn’t get people mad, perhaps this other thing will do the trick....
I really don’t think it was wise for Phil Robertson to give the kind of interview he did with a publication that would be naturally hostile to his world view. I suppose that the family will be more careful about its interaction with media from now on.
"Cajuns were thrown out of Canada and settled in the swamps of LA Around New Orleans to baton Rouge.
Not correct. If you had said Alexandria, you'd have had it right. And they didn't settle "just" in the swamps.
More correctly, they settled on available land away from the Mississippi River to the west (the plantation Creoles owned the land closest to the river). The land to the east was occupied by "old English" sorts (the "Florida Parishes).
There are two flavors of Cajuns...."prairie" Cajuns, who are small farmer types, and "swamp" Cajuns, who earn their livelihoods hunting and/or fishing.
This is PRECISELY the same "split" you have with rednecks (people of Scot/Irish ancestry). Some are small farmer sorts, the others hunt and fish.
The "hunting/fishing" sorts of both Cajun and redneck varieties are far more similar than different.
"They are good people. If they are your friend, you couldn't ask for a better friend. If they are you enemy, Look Out. You couldn't ask for a worst enemy. Kinda like me.
This is true for both Cajuns AND rednecks, whether "prairie" or "swamp".
What do "I" know about it?? Born and raised in Pointe Coupee Parish (which is quite a ways north of Baton Rouge). I went to school with both types of Cajuns (but no rednecks).
Because Great Britain wanted Canada. A main driving force was that the new British rulership wanted to shut down the Catholic Church in Canada, and the 'Cajuns steadfastly refused to change their religious affiliation. Plus the British aristocracy wanted the land.
The video sermon by Phil in 2009 was selectively quoted by Huffington Post and already proven to be wrong.
Robertson advocating young men marrying girls at 16 and 15
mainly because these boys are waiting til they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em,
"Honestly, dad, as well as the rest of us, we really try early on in our kids' lives to teach them about the importance of finding the right person that you can grow spiritually with," stated Alan.
most of us got married pretty young, in our teenage years.
For what it’s worth...
Expulsion of the Acadians
Not just that, he was promoting and encouraging ILLEGAL sex between an under-aged kid and a full grown adult. The young males Robertson refers to (late teens I imagine) could never actually marry 15-16 year-old girls. And I haven’t seen anywhere where he was suggesting they had illegal sexual contact like in the Obama ‘safe school czar’ case.
Not sure maybe the previous poster can answer.
How does a Cajun say
Hold muh beer!
Hey ya’ll, watch this! ?
What if it is 40 year old men going after 18 year old women?
Good for him.
Le Grand Dérangement!
Wasn’t Mary — you know... the virgin — a teen?
Not always. I met my girl she was almost 15. I went in the Army at 17, returned from Vietnam at 18 when I was wounded and 11 days after her 16th birthday with her parents permission we were married. So technically 2 weeks before we married when I was 18 and she 15 I guess we can assume my guilt as an adult/child predator.
*we will observe our 46th anniversary this summer
Thanks for the correction.
I lived in New Orleans for a time after getting out of the Army in 1968. I remember being in a bar in Westwego one time and I heard a guy say: "come here coon ass". I thought here goes a fight fer sure. They slapped each other on the back and called each other coon asses and proceeded to get drunk. No fight. That is how I learned coon ass was just what they call each other.
It's called LUST. LUST can turn into love. . . .
I was of course referring to Obama’s former, of all things, “safe school czar”, Kevin Jennings, as the one who had advocated and encouraged sex between a minor and an adult. He should have immediately reported it to law enforcement when he first became aware. Instead he encouraged and promoted it.
The middle-school dynamic currently on display is typical of the Left. They lost the main battle (Phil v. A&E/GLAAD) badly, so now they are sniping at Phil in all ways possible, including making things up out of whole cloth, to try to bring him down. This will continue until they succeed or until the end of time, whichever comes first.
Don’t the ragheads/camel jockeys advocate taking brides when the girl is 8 or 9 years old?
Why have you avoided West Virginia?
Ping for your intrest Megan Dear :)
Cajuns indeed are good people. “If they are your friend, you couldn’t ask for a better friend. If they are you enemy, Look Out. You couldn’t ask for a worst enemy.”....
Cajuns don’t have a monopoly on being good friends (or your enemy), a lot of “country folks” are like that, and that also includes me.
If you read or listen the ENTIRE Phil Robertson talk that night, you will understand he was being funny about this issue...It was more of a joke than anything....
If you read or listen the ENTIRE Phil Robertson talk that night,
Context is everything but often ignored.
Phil married his wife at 16... and he is correct. By 20, most young women have been indoctrinated into the evils of modern day America. Several states allow marriage at that young of an age but with parental consent.
A modestly expansive reading of what Phil Robertson says, within context of the interview, is that it is much better to marry young and keep “carnal knowledge” exclusively with your bethrothed within holy matrimony.
Marriage before sex.
You will both be happier and society will be better off.
Seems like sage advice from a successful 67 year old man.
Again, very different than the situation with Obama's former safe school czar. Hopefully the lefties from Huff Post are lurking here and get smacked in the face by this.
Ah me. One of the shortcomings of my life is that I never learned to speak Cajun. Where I am from is kind of unusual even for South Louisiana, as there are Creoles, Cajuns, and a smattering of families from “Old Virginia” (as in Revolutionary War Virginia) all rubbing elbows.
But having spent many a Saturday night cavorting at ‘Cajun night spots, I’m sure they have both.
Yup. The term is "Proud Coon Ass". I have seen many a coffee mug showing the south end of a north-bound coon....tail high, with that phrase on it! I'm sure there must be people "somewhere" who can match 'Cajuns in knowing how to "pass a good time", but I've never seen or heard of any.
Haven't. Various travels just never took me through there. Same for Maine.
My usual situation was that I was driving from Louisiana to New York (near Albany) to visit relatives, and driving on Interstates. Have friends in Ohio, so the route was usually La to Ohio to New York. If I was in a hurry, and doing La to NY, it was usually via Knoxville. Neither route goes thru WV.
Oh I agree with you 100%... not even in the same category. Children are the most innocent amongst us and JESUS gave direct orders about not harming even one hair on their head or causing them to sin. If only we were still a moral society.
I need to check out this Duck show soon. I have seen a clip of Robertson speaking/preaching. For the most part, I thought he made a lot of sense.
Jim Crow = Democrat
In quite a few states 15 or 16 was the legal age to marry. Mostly in the south, no laws are broken to marry at 16. In many states sex with a 16 year old is statuarory rape. Depends on where you live...
That gal I knew was from NY, she got married at 15 in MD and the next yr got married again in NY (where 16 was legal with parents permission, this was the “big” wedding). MD was the big elopement state around here, I don’t know how young you could get married there without parent’s permission, but clearly it was younger that NY or NJ.
Got any links for that?
