Sometimes protestantism has a way of taking care of itself.
Meet Stewart Allen Clark, pastor of a Baptist Church in Missouri, or as the Baptists call it, the local pope. Seems like pope Stewart speaks infallibly – at least until he actually speaks. Last Sunday pope Stewart stated that married women who let themselves go are a real problem. And the legendary Pot Luck dinners on the grounds have nothing to do with it.
To illustrate his point, the local pontiff observed that you can’t all be Melania Trump, but hey, the least you ladies can do is try. Indeed.
A Missouri pastor is on leave after delivering a sermon telling women to lose weight and submit to the sexual desires of their husbands to keep them from straying.
Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark took a leave of absence Tuesday from First General Baptist in Malden after widespread criticism of his sexist sermon in late February. Besides weight loss and sex, Clark told wives to wear makeup, dress nicely, choose appropriate hairstyles and appear less “butch.”
Although the church in southeastern Missouri deleted videos from its website, a recording of the sermon appears on Facebook.
“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. Most women can’t be trophy wives, but you know … … maybe you’re a participation trophy,”
