Kirk Cameron To Women: Your Life Purpose Is To Please Your Husband

If you’re a woman you’re going to want to deck this guy for what he just said.

During an interview with the Christian Post this week, evangelist Kirk Cameron said that no matter how wives are treated by their husbands they should be submissive and stay in the marriage because God commands it.

“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 before claiming that women should know their role so that the marriage can succeed. “When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage.”

In other words, even if she is being beaten daily by her husband and treated like a slave, a wife should always remain submissive and basically let her husband do whatever they want without consequence. And it’s all because the Bible says so according to Cameron.

“A lot of people don’t know that marriage comes with instructions,” he said. “And, we find them right there in God’s word.”

Seriously. This is the “advice” Cameron has for women.

Someone should call Cameron’s wife and make sure she is okay because the former child actor clearly thinks domestic violence is something wives should just ignore instead of saving themselves and getting out of the marriage.

Cameron is, of course, part of the conservative Christian fundamentalist movement which repeatedly preaches that women are nothing more than common house slaves meant to cook, clean, raise children, and talk only when their husbands give them permission to do so.

Just take pastor Steven Anderson for instance.

In February, Anderson posted a sermon in which he preached that women should be banned from voting, barred from seeking divorce, prevented from entering the workforce, and ought to be confined to the home where they are submissive to their husbands.

“The right to divorce your husband is what they mean. You know what they mean? The right to rebel and disobey your husband, the right to divorce him, the right to go out and get a job and make your own money, the right to tell him what to do, the right to go vote for our leaders as if women should have any say in how our country is run when the Bible says that “I suffer not a woman to teach, not to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.””

Here’s the video via YouTube:

Two years earlier, Anderson demanded that women shut their mouths in church so that the men could teach them. You have to wonder if Cameron believes that, too.

Anderson has also preached that women shouldn’t be allowed to talk, read, or leave the house.

Basically, if conservative Christians like Steven Anderson or Kirk Cameron had their way women would be forbidden to have lives outside of the home and would be under the boot heel of their husbands day in and day out without a say in the matter. And just think, many Republican lawmakers agree with them.

It’s a scary thought that should spur women across the country to use their right to vote to put men like Cameron and Anderson in their place.

  1. Yeah you and men like you can go f–k yourselves. Because we no longer will.
    And just one more thing your bible teaches that man
    Is supposed to love his wife as Christ loved the Church…”..smh. No where does he tell the church to suck him off or they’re there for his pleasure.
    Read a bible before spouting off misinformed fodder.

  2. MANY HERE WILL BE SURPRISED, BUT I AM A CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN AND IT IS DISAPPOINTING TO HEAR THIS POTENTIALLY HORRIBLE ADVICE.
    NO MAN HAS THE RIGHT TO MISTREAT HIS WIFE OR CHILDREN! “REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY ARE TREATED”? REALLY KIRK? THE BIBLE SAYS “HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH”. MEANING JESUS LAYED HIS LIFE DOWN FOR THEM (greater love has no man than this, that a man lay his life down for his friends).
    LET’S ALL REMIND SUCH THAT MARRIAGE IS A TWO WAY STREET IN THAT BOTH LOVE AND TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER WHILE YES HUSBANDS DO LEAD HOWEVER THE BIBLE DOESN’T PERMIT HIM TO BE HARSH. A REAL MAN PUTS HIS GOD 1ST WIFE 2ND. WOMEN MUST BE PROTECTED FROM GETTING ABUSED AND CHILDREN AS WELL.

    • This writer is a liar…Kirk also mentioned mans role according to the Bible. He never mentioned all the negative crap this writer claims or insinuates. His mission was accomplished…to pit Christian against Christian…

  3. Crazy article. God says no such thing and by the way did you notice the very last line of the article and Republicans feel this way too I was like what the heck. Republicans have nothing to do with this whole story and to throw it in a stupid. Anderson needs to shut the hell up

  4. Men who say they are "Christian" and say this crap ignore women in the Bible like Judith who did not listen to the male leaders and beheaded the general of the enemy army saving her people. The Bible says proclaims Judith is blessed “by the Most High God above all other women on earth” (Judith 13:18). King Josiah sent a delegation of trusted men to see Huldah the prophetess in order to inquire about a book of the law. So a king consulted a woman about the law. A builder, “His daughter was Sheerah, who built Lower and Upper Beth Horon as well as Uzzen Sheerah,” which was named for her. (I Chronicles 7:24 NIV). Aksah was a female farmer. Deboral was a Judge, the Bible used the same word for her as it does male judges. "The Israelites would come up to her to have their disputes settled.” Judges 4:4. No one who is Christian should follow a man who is a fake Christian, to do so leads them astray from God. If not all an evil man who followed Satan would have to do is pretend to be a Christian and marry, or lead a congregation or group and use his fake Christianity to do evil. You Will Know Them by Their Fruits. If a woman is deceived into marrying a man she thinks is Christian but he turns out to have lied or be evil hiding in sheep’s clothing then was the marriage ever really blessed or recognized in Gods eyes? Matthew 7:15-20
