Clearly, one big goal of the conservative Christian base is to one day strip women of their right to vote and confine them solely to the home.

And that’s exactly what Arizona pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church preached to his congregation in a video he uploaded to YouTube.

In this latest rant, Anderson goes full misogynist, whining about women being able to divorce their husbands, having the right to vote, and having a job outside of the home, all of which he believes only men should have the ability to do.

“You know what they mean [by women’s rights]?” Anderon asked his flock.

“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”?

I AM QUOTING THE BIBLE RIGHT NOW!

But it’s old-fashioned…”

Here’s the video via YouTube.

This isn’t the first time Anderson has been a total dick towards women. He once went on a rant about how women shouldn’t be allowed to read, talk, or leave the house without permission from a man. He has even demanded that women keep their mouths shut in church, which makes one wonder how any woman can stand being around this asshole.

And he is hardly the first conservative “Christian” hero to call for banning women from voting. Fake historian David Barton has also said that women should be barred from voting because the Bible says that only the head of the household should be allowed to vote on the family’s behalf, regardless of what policies or candidates the rest of the family supports.

And Republican presidential candidates, from Ted Cruz to Trump to Rubio to Kasich, haven’t exactly made it a secret that they have a general disdain for women. All of them have made it clear that women’s rights will suffer should any of them become president. And it’s because of preachers like Anderson on the Christian right that Republicans have adopted such medieval beliefs about women, which is why it is even more important than ever before that every woman in this country exercise their right to vote. Because if they don’t, they may not have that right much longer if conservatives have their way.

  1. He is uttering against the eternal design of the God Almighty. God has his own plan you cannot interpret His decision according to your limitted knowledge. God has given equal right to women as if men have and in a close examination it can be evident that in some sense it is more than the right what men have. Jesus was punished by men not by women. No women Caain was there and God has chosen men to bleed in the battle. Because he has sinned. Women are saved and protected by God.

  2. One man's opinion doesn't reflect the opinion of the whole party. One conservative preacher doesn't reflect the preaching of all ministr's of all the preachers of the conservative party. I too am a Republican, and I am Reverend: Robert Ruch. I disagree with this man's Doctrine. He does not preach Doctrine from the word of YHVH God concerning women. Abraham was commanded to harken unto the voice of his wife. So much that he had the cast out his Elder son Ishmael with his mother the Bond woman. Men keep tucking women, slowly into a quieter place. It is a power and control issue. But as you see even in the word of God. God finally steps in, and says no more. Even as he did with the children of Israel in Egypt. He stepped in and said let my people go. So God stepped in and said harken unto the voice of thy wife. That does not weakin the position and power of authority a position that God has set forth for man, and woman to hold in life. The man as the head of the woman, as Christ has a head a man, and God the head of Christ. Each has their own position, and Authority. But you do not disrespect one another. You love the others as you love yourself.
