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. Evangelical preachers are diluting and distorting the true intent and meaning of Christianity. It is a religion for the masses based on equality, justice, forgiveness,, kindness, acceptance, hard work and sacrifice and realizing a direct relationship with God through Christ Jesus.

  2. Welcome to fundy Islam in Saudi Arabia. The Teleban enforces these identical rules on women in Afghanistan…Iraq..this is SHARIA law from the Qu’ran. And deuteronomy of the bible sanctions honor killings. Will that happen next??.. this is old testament….we FOLLOW what Jesus teaches. NEW TESTAMENT. ANDERSON IS EVANGELICAL ISIS

  3. Quit using the old testament, which Christ rendered null by dying for the sin on humanity. He ushered in the new testament and he spoke , interacted with women and elevated them. You are a heresy to the word of God. If you hate women so much and believe that they should have no power. you are a very poor example of a man. You may be Male, but you are not a man, you’re a controlling insecure little boy.

    • He's quoting the New Testament, so you don't really know what the Bible says.
      Paul in the New Testament tells women to be quiet and ask their husbands if they have questions.
      It says they should not speak in and they should keep at home.
      It isn't the Old Testament that is the problem, it's the entire book.

  4. Jesus told us Himself that He won’t recognize these turds. If you don’t believe, that’s cool. I Still wish you peace, prosperity, kindness & success in helping others whenever you can. B/c That’s True Christianity. A-holes like this guy are just insecure little creeps whose Mamas were probably very mean to them. It’s the only explanation I can think of as to why they resent over half the planet based on gender alone.

    Females were a gift to males, and we are far better off working together as equal partners (or as same-sex couples. No sermon of Christ’s ever disparaged that situation. He merely preached Love instead of hatred, and Caring instead of greed).

    Every individual has worthy gifts to bring to the table, if they so desire. The fact that we don’t all have the Same Exact abilities just helps us to bridge the gaps, wherever possible. Just imagine how ticked you’d be if you went to the trouble to make an awesome gift for someone & they did nothing but trash & abuse it, as if it had no value.

    Too many seek to judge & condemn when, as I recall, we’ve been instructed Not to do so. Fake Christians do nothing but give a bad rep to actual believers. They’ll be so very disappointed when they finally do meet their Maker, as he’s bound to be pretty POed w/ them. That’s not me judging, just guessing, and warning. Judgment will be entirely up to Someone Else. The good thing is that it’ll be in a court there’s No Way they’ll be able to stack w/ insecure weinies just like themselves.

  5. And you wonder why the world is in trouble? People and their never ending slant on what the Bible means. I see nothing but fighting and hatred, control and power over the battle to be right. People creating their own religions with their own rules and doctrine. Maybe the golden rule, to do unto others, as you would have them do unto you would be a good game changer for this guy to start with. Teach your children to be kind and they will become sensitive, loving people.
