MALDEN, MO (WTVO) — A Missouri pastor is in professional counseling after multiple people said he delivered a sexist sermon.
A viral video shows Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark preaching about the importance of women pleasing their husbands and ‘not letting go’.
“Now listen, I’m not saying every woman can be the epic trophy wife of all time like Melania Trump,” he said. “Most women can’t be trophy wives… but maybe a participation trophy. All I can say is not everyone looks like that, Amen? But you don’t have to look like a butch either!
“Men want their wives to look beautiful at home and in public, can I get an Amen?”
“God created men to be attracted to beautiful women. That’s how we are. We can’t help ourselves.
Pastor Clark ‘thanked God’ for the makeup and suggested women seek advice from their husbands on what looks good.
“It’s important that he thinks you’re hot!” It’s important because he’s going to be watching, and you want him to be watching you.
He also joked that he no longer advises married couples because they lack “weight control”.
Clark ended the sermon by saying, “Scientists have discovered, by the way, a food that lowers female libido. This is called the “wedding cake”.
According to the church’s website, “Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark has taken a leave of absence and is seeking professional counsel.”
The General Baptist Council of Associations also condemned his message in a public statement.
