    Aren’t religious bigots all for that? Wasn’t Mary about 12 when she was promised to Joseph who was about 90? Joseph was previously married? Having been sold in to slavery (by his own brother) he later became very powerful in Egypt and was promised Mary as a reward. He married her when she was about 14. However, if we believe she was a virgin, then the marriage wasn’t consummated according to the Bible and they were actually living in sin, and not married. It does sound like Phil does believe women should be subservient to men, that they’re no good if they can’t cook, that they shouldn’t have careers and lives of their own and be independent, that they should faithfully obey their husbands. He knows he wouldn’t get away with it if he was in a relationship with a man – any crap like that and I’d punch him in to next Wednesday.

    Then…. there is the question of Jesus’s brothers and sisters – the churches don’t like to talk about them, because it might imply Mary wasn’t a virgin!

      You are mixing up a couple of Josephs here my friend, but I always like reading your posts.

        Bit of a shame though, Jason Donovan in a loincloth belting out a few numbers would certainly liven up the average nativity play :-)

  2. He must be a closet gay, because religious leaders tell me that gay=pedophile.
    “Marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16” Or, take advantage of girls/women when they are too young to understand what is being done to them, and are unable to stand up and defend themselves.

    Also, ‘pick your ducks’ has got the be one of the most immature and offensive innuendos for ‘be subject to a man’s sexual advances regardless of willingness’.

    So many str8 men are all about control. Women are less than human, and are chattel. We’ve heard it all before. Are they ever loved? Really loved?
    It is reflected in the religions and cultures they create – for instance, is a fundamentalist Islamist (or any other cult) ever really loved by his wife or wives? Does he experience love? How can a life of power ever really be satisfying? Where does he go for friendship and conversation? If it is his church or circle of male buddies, then could it be argued that his relationships are truly homosexual in spirit if not physically? Wouldn’t sex at home end up being humdrum and boring? No wonder so many of these freaks believe sex is only for procreation…

    What a way to spend New Year’s Eve!

    1. Brilliant comment Christopher. Thank you.

    Looks like a paedo, talks like a paedo …
    He’d be arrested for incitement to commit paedophilia if he said that in England.
    And quite right too …

    1. Very appropriately that line of reasoning is called the ‘Duck Test’.

  5. Ths guy is crazy – why are we even giving him any airspace?

      Because he’s not alone by any stretch. Religion is utterly insane, yet billions of human beings the world over use its insanity to justify all sorts of oppression and evil. That’s why we all need to keep an eye.

    It’s interesting to see that the religious nutters are still supporting him on that video. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? These people claim to be about morals and religious doctrine, but they’re willing to back someone who obviously objectifies women and views them as a commodity to own.

    It’s like the Muslim fanatics of other countries, with gangs of old men seemingly only supporting their religion because it gives them control over women and allows them to buy and sell their own daughters, rape others, use women as slaves and be the “master” of their household.

    It seems to me that the Christian/Catholic fanatics are no different in their opinions of women, and perhaps this is why they claim to be so “religious”.

  7. Y’all are being ridiculous. The part about marrying at 15 or 16 is in jest. You can clearly hear his audience laughing in the video. He also said the boys are waiting til they are 20 to marry which implies that he would want both the male and female to be teens. Clearly not talking about pedophilia. And im sorry but most men want a woman that can cook. Hell anyone would find that appealing. I love that my partner can cook. And when he’s talking about picking a duck he is not using sexual innuendo. He’s actually talking about how his wife Kay cleans the ducks he kills for their meals. People need to settle down. There is no story here…
