    Default Phil Robertson advocating for marrying 15 and 16 year old girls.

    Caught on tape.

    I don't understand why people are hanging on this fellow's words like he knows anything more than anyone else does.

    I know, what's the deal with this guy? I've seen the program once or twice, and it's ok. Not my favorite. All those hairy guys look alike, I'm not sure who is who. and I'm pretty sure I don't really care, LOL.

    Oh for god's sake, this is not a real person, it is a persona created to emulate a southern redneck stereotype for the sake of stirring up the plebes which translates into ratings and revenue. The whole act is a colossal heap of commercialized shame.

    or anything other than making duck calls.

    and why is anyone surprised that a fundie, homophobic, narrow minded man holds the belief that girls should be married off at a young age? It's part of the whole evangelical mission....courtship not dating.

    probably like the old joke 'looking for woman with bass boat, who can clean fish, send pictures of boat'

    It's not a new sentiment, get the girls young, groom them to the lifestyle...

    whatever...

    Yeah, but, so what? Isn't it legal to marry at 16? I believe in Canada the age of consent was 14 up until recently.

    Have many of you ever listened to Kay? Phil really isn't worried about brains. But the relationship seems to work. I'm willing to bet the comment was really taken out of context.

    I'll guess it's some kind of euphemism about subservience.

    HAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! He got you! Don't you know he says those comments just to get liberal hens like you into a huge cluck fest!

    It's like with Howard Stern. People who hate him listen to him just to see what he says. Phil is the Howard Stern of this time.

    I think it means literally to "pick your ducks". When I was young my dad used to hunt ducks and geese. When he brought them home he'd pluck out the large feathers, gut them, and singe the pin feathers off with a small open flame (which smells remarkably like a hoof being hot shod). He referred to removing the feathers as picking the duck (or goose).

    For the record, my mom roasted some lovely duck and goose for our dinners, but no way, no how, was she going to clean or pick them. That was dad's job. You kill it, you clean it.

    Geese are a royal PITA to pick. Gah.

    Back to the topic. He's gross.
