All of our problems have the root of feminism, and the insertion of women into public life.
Imagine that women used to prize smiling subservience.
I’m sure they were still dumb bitches who would stab you any way they could, but the norm was to look and act pretty.
Christian leaders really dropped the ball on that one.
A Missouri pastor has taken a leave of absence from his church amid backlash after he went viral for a sermon where he made controversial comments telling married women how to keep up their looks, warning that otherwise their husbands might stray.
Stewart-Allen Clark told the wives of his congregation that he doesn’t expect them to look like former First Lady Melania Trump — whom he called “the epic trophy wife of all time” — but “you don’t need to look like a butch, either.”
On Sunday, Clark preached to the First General Baptist Church in Malden, Missouri, about his views on the importance of having an “attractive wife,” telling women to practice “weight control,” warning them against wearing sweatpants too much and not giving their husbands “a reason to be looking around.”
The pastor said he doesn’t think women have the “capacity” or “ability to understand how visual men are.”
Clark reasoned, “”Ladies, it’s the way God made us,” telling his audience, “It’s the way we are. Men are going to look. He made us to look. You want them to be looking at you. Don’t let yourself go.”
“Now, look, I’m not saying every woman can be the epic, the epic trophy wife of all time, like Melania Trump — I’m not saying that at all,” Clark said at one point, posting a picture of Mrs. Trump on the screen. “Most women can’t be trophy wives… but maybe a participation trophy.”
He added, “I don’t know, but all I can say is not everybody looks like that! Amen! But you don’t need to look like a butch, either!”
By Monday, General Baptist Ministries, the national organization for Clark’s denomination, issued a statement saying that their council had met to “address concerns” from Clark’s sermon after it “received significant exposure.”
“The sermon included comments that are not consistent with the position and values of General Baptists,” the organization wrote, noting that Clark had resigned from his position as the slated moderator for their upcoming July meeting.
General Baptists don’t believe that women have to lose weight and avoid looking like a butch?
Do General Baptists promote that women be fat, sloppy whores?
What even is this?
