Pastor Steven Anderson: Men Rule Over Women at Home, and I’ll Arm Wrestle Any Woman Here Who Disagrees

Pastor Steven Anderson said that “the husband’s the head of the wife,” then laughed off criticism that he was misogynistic because, he continued, “it’s like a new word” and he wasn’t interested in jumping on some “trendy” bandwagon.

"I get an email every day calling me “misogynistic.” What a stupid word. This is, like, a new word. I never heard that when I was a kid. I didn’t hear that. Did you hear that growing up?…"
"See, I don’t go with all your little trendy words and all your little trendy concepts. You know, people have been doing it my way for the last 6,000 years — in all cultures, pretty much, in all nations of the world, and it’s worked out great for a lot of people."
Anderson doesn’t get the problem with misogyny because things have “worked out great for a lot of people.” Which is true. Men are doing just fine.
Anderson continued:
But all of a sudden, we’re supposed to get on this trendy little faggoty type of a relationship where, you know, my wife and I are supposed to dress the same, act the same, look the same, talk the same, live the same lifestyle, have the same authority.
Not-so-subtle homophobic slur aside, gender equality doesn’t mean men and women have to do everything the same way. Have the same opportunities? Yes. But no one’s forcing Anderson to dress like his wife as a way to promote feminism.
I want to tell Anderson to get a dictionary and look up the word “misogyny” so he doesn’t keep misinterpreting it, but I’m pretty sure he has a rule against opening up a second book, says Hemant Mehta, a blogger from Patheos
And Anderson went far:
… honestly, women are just as happy in this lifestyle as men. When there’s a proper lifestyle, where the husband is the leader. Because here’s the thing: Women are not wired to want to be in charge and rule over a man. It goes against the grain with them to be the boss and make all the decisions. They love to be married to a strong man. Women don’t want to be married to a weakling…
There are no doubt women who accept and appreciate their traditional gender roles. But you know what would make that argument even stronger? Giving them the option of working outside the house, being a boss, leading a church, etc. and seeing what they do. For many women raised in fundamentalist Christianity, they’re taught from a young age that they must accept certain roles. Of course many would seem happy. It’s not like they’ve given any thought to the alternatives.

Even the feminist women, deep down, they’re like, “Please rule over me! Please be my leader!”
And then we got to the best part of all. Anderson challenged women to arm wrestle him. Because that’s how you settle all disputes about who’s really in charge.

… I challenge any woman right now to come up and arm wrestle me… I’m gonna make the challenge that I’ve made over and over again… I’m not the strongest man in the world! Any woman can come up and arm wrestle me right now. And if you can come up and defeat me in an arm wrestling match, I’ll admit that women are as strong as men.


… I’ve had about five women take me up on that over the years, and they all went down, and they went down hard, alright?
To this day, men and women are not equal. Every day are the women victims of violence. The women earn less than men. They are often raped. The women are sexually unfree. If they have free sex, they are often stigmatized as 'sluts.' And this disparity has religious motives. "Women are treated more equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion,” says Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States. Steven Anderson and many other pastors want to strengthen this inequality. But such persons have no chance.

  1. So arm wrestling determines intellect and leadership skills? Guess we should be hitting an Irish Pub instead of having an election.

    1. You would get better candidates in an Irish pub, then the two twats you have running at the moment... Are they the best you could come up with out of 400,000 people? lol
