In a video made four years ago, the family patriarch encouraged men to marry women when they are still 15 to 16 year olds.
A&E's decision to reinstate Phil Robertson in the filming of "Duck Dynasty" may have come too soon. There is a new controversy surrounding the hit show that could put the network in the hot water once again.
A video made four years ago has surfaced, showing Robertson giving advice on what kind of women are worth the wedding ring and him suggesting teenage girls. He said in the video that surfaced on YouTube, "Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out."
Holding a bible, Robertson was giving a counseling at Sportsmen's Ministry retreat in Georgia. The duck hunter continued, "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."
When talking about how hard it is now to find a good woman, the conservative man said, "Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em. Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket. You gotta marry these girls when they're about 15 or 16."
Robertson himself married his wife Miss Kay when she was 16. Trying not to sound too pervert, he added, "You need to check with mom and dad about that of course."
The video came on the heels of Robertson's comments about homosexuality on a GQ interview and his brief suspension from the hit reality show. The network has since lifted the ban and decided to continue filming with Robertson in tow despite protests from several groups.
