Phil Robertson Had Son Out of Wedlock, Lectures Others on Sex

| by Michael Allen

"Duck Dynasty" TV reality star Phil Robertson often lectures American on sex, from comparing homosexuality to bestiality to advising men to marry girls in their teens.

"Duck Dynasty" executive producer Deirdre Gurney stated in June that Robertson "has beliefs and stands by them."

However, Robertson never mentioned that his first son Alan Robertson was born out of wedlock.

Robertson's wife Miss Kay recently spilled the beans to USWeekly, "Well, this is the first time I've shared this, aside from giving my testimony [in church]. When I made a vow to God and to [Phil], it was March 22, 1964. It wasn't legal. That's the truth. We didn't do the legal papers until April 11, 1968, after Alan, my oldest, was born. Alan says, 'Yeah, I would be the B [bastard] in the family.'"

"Now, the family laughs about it," added Miss Kay. "People ask, 'When was your mama's wedding?' and the boys say, 'Which, the pioneer wedding or the regular wedding?'"

For his part, Robertson continues to lecture other people about sex and it's no joke.

In May, Robertson defended his anti-gay rant from GQ magazine with another anti-gay rant during a sermon in church, noted TMZ.

“They were mad at me," said Robertson. "Because instead of acknowledging their sin like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sin! Don’t deceive yourself! You want the verse? The news media didn’t even know it was a verse. They thought I was just mouthing off.”

Robertson then quoted 1 Corinthians 6:9 about sexually immoral people not inheriting the kingdom of God. reported in June that Robertson defended his anti-gay rants again by telling a festival in Alabama, "I'm actually a nice man… I'm trying to help those poor souls and turn them to Jesus."
