Christian Bigot Kirk Cameron: Women are Meant to be Subservient to Their Husbands

Normally this probably wouldn’t be a story I would cover, but considering Kirk Cameron has been propped up by the right as some sort of beacon for “Christian values,” and he’s used what fame he has to push his godawful (pun intended) fanatical Christian propaganda, I thought I’d have a little fun tearing apart recent comments he made where he literally said that women are to be subservient to their husbands during an interview with the Christian Post.

“Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband’s lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband,” Cameron said. “When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage.”

Hear that ladies? Stop telling your husbands how they should be better and simply follow their lead.

Naturally he’s taking these words from the Bible, a book that typically treats women like they’re sub-human vessels only good for having children or serving men. So it’s not exactly that big of a shock that Cameron, a hardcore religious fanatic, seems to believe that women are to be seen and treated as second-class citizens.

But Cameron’s words point to a much bigger problem in the ever-growing influence religious fanaticism has in the Republican party. While his views are clearly more on the “fringe” side of the party, let’s not forget that Sen. Ted Cruz is in second place in the GOP presidential race – and he’s very dangerous religious fanatic.

Ted Cruz is someone who’s defended the endorsement of a pastor who called Adolf Hitler a “hunter” sent by God; his father has referred to the theory of evolution as a communist belief; and Cruz has literally said that the only way to save the United States is to turn it into a theocracy.

So, we can dismiss fools like Kirk Cameron for their draconian, outdated and blatantly sexist beliefs as just some random idiot expressing a view that’s only believed by a certain section of religious bigots. That’s easy to do.

But I can’t help but feel that this sort of fanaticism is becoming more and more accepted in today’s Republican party. There was a time when someone like Kirk Cameron wouldn’t have been as open with these sorts of views as an actor, or a candidate as radical as Ted Cruz wouldn’t have come anywhere close to winning a presidential nomination.

Except, this sort of behavior is becoming more acceptable.

Creationist museums sprouting up all over the country, pushes to teach creationism in schools and laws being passed in many Republican-controlled states where religion is being used as a mechanism to discriminate against homosexuals. And I truly believe this is all tied together.

And if you doubt me, check out an article I did a couple of years ago about the “Seven Cultural Mountains” and the push by powerful people to, slowly over time, interject religious control over nearly every facet of our lives.

Based on the signs I’ve seen over the last few years, I think that “movement” is pushing heavily to try to become a reality.

    Cue the Pearl Clutching Christians to say that THEY certainly aren’t like that and nobody THEY know is like that. And that this is just a small fringe movement and no one should take nuts like this so seriously. Tra-la, tra-la, my Jesus is fine.

  • This man is a hate-monger and he deserves to be arrested for his Hate Speech!

  • Garyle Morgan

    Wow. So much hate towards someone telling women (and men if you bothered to read the passages) to love one another more than yourself. That couldn’t possibly be the key to a good marriage, could it? Stop closing your eyes and ears as soon as you hear/see the word Christian or Bible. Do the research for yourself. If you aren’t willing to go above and beyond for your spouse, you aren’t worth being married to.

    • Howard Sands

      None of that is what he said. But then again, like the bible, people interpret things differently.

    • fpwillson

      There is another good book you can read, Morgan. Written a while back by the “Brothers Grimm.”

      • Garyle Morgan

        This is what I’m talking about. Hate for hate’s sake. Why be a jerk? Just say you don’t agree and, I don’t know, maybe actually have a valid point instead of a lame attempt at a “mic drop moment”.

    Lol . This is funny. 3rd wave feminists making demands of men, while saying men have no right to tell women what to do.
    Women, you do not have a penis. Do not tell a man how to act. What he should think, say , or do. You do not want a man telling you how to act, then do not presume or assume any authority to tell a man how to act.
    Relationships are beyween two consenting adults. If a woman chooses to be subservient, it is her choice. Respect Her choice.
    If a man chooses to be subservient, respect that it is his choice.Not everyone subscribes to the man hating, family hating leftist crap. It is their choice, it is the left choosing hate sperch against Christianity.
    Screw you, when you yourselves defend a religion of true women oppressiin, Islam. Burqas, woman beating, rape, pedophilia.
    Until the leftist feminists take a full stand against Islam, then you are simply discriminatory and Christianaphobes.
    I myself hate all religion and agree they are b.s.
    However , to say it is hatred is total crap.
    Especially with the violence and excusing of violence by the leftists in todays world.
    You are simply put, ignorant fascists.This article is a perfect example of that.

    The bible is thousands of years old. It was not written for the general public ,but for those who love God. Things that the general public considered feminist 5000 years ago are considered misogynistic today. There has been an enormous change of thought in the last 20 years. You can’t expect people to suddenly have the same epiphany that you think you have had. God is the author of the bible and only the Spirit of God can interpret it. We have had a over a thousand years of predominately Judeo-Christian principles predominating. Let’s see what occurs without it.
