What follows is a discussion between millionaire Christian “reality” show Duck Dynasty brothers Si and Phil Robertson on the subject of hot chicks and committing sexual sin. This is excerpted from an article in the October 2013 Men’s Journal:
In the flesh, Si seems somewhat more reserved than he does on the show, and he often defers to big brother Phil. When Phil takes off on a long spiel about the pitiful state of the world, Si waits until the very end to offer his two cents.
“It ain't gun control we need; it's sin control,” he says.
“Self-control,” Phil says.
“Self-control,” Si repeats.”
Self-control and sin control,” Phil says, getting the last word.
It's almost lunchtime. Phil steps into the kitchen, tells everyone to gather round, and says a prayer. After that, his boys and Si heap spaghetti onto their plates, and pretty soon a few long beards are showing evidence of tomato sauce.Phil isn't in any hurry to eat. He's talking about the “many, many, many” times a woman has come on to him since Duck Dynasty hit it big.”They walk up with a pair of little bitty, bitty bikini underwear and say, 'Will you sign these?' Well, my first question is, 'Are they clean?' But, see, as I move forward on my travels, I make sure I take two things with me, my Bible and my woman, Miss Kay. You see what I'm saying? I've put my heathen days behind me. I'm not going down that path again. Drunkenness, smoking dope, being immoral. But be alert, because your enemy, the evil one, is prowling around like a roaring lion. With these chicks, Miss Kay is seated right beside me. You never sit down with a woman alone. Never, ever.”
What I want to know is how Phil knows these women have on a “pair of little bitty, bitty bikini underwear?” (Yes, I know they already have the underwear off. Just having some fun here) Is the type of underwear a woman wears an indicator of their sexual prowess, availability, or desire to bed a redneck like Phil Robertson?
Is macho man Phil so weak that the only way he can avoid adultery is by having his wife seated right beside him and NEVER, EVER being alone with a woman? And why doesn't Miss Kay take care of any woman who offers panties to her husband? Even my quiet, passive wife would likely have something to say if women were offering me panties to sign.
This is another example of the belief that Evangelical Christian men are pathetic, weak, powerless beings, that, if left to themselves would screw their way through the church or, in Phil’s case, the Duck Dynasty female audience.
