One pastor was beaten up for telling women in his church to “lose weight” and become “trophy women” like Melania Trump.
Stewart Allen Clark, 55, showed worship photos of the former first lady as he made a series of misogynistic comments during a sermon at First General Baptist Church last month.
The preacher hailed Donald Trump’s spouse as the ultimate “trophy wife”, adding that other women “let go” after marriage.
A video of the speech went viral, sparking a backlash against the pastor’s comments that led to his being on leave.
Despite the lack of applause, Clark continued to offer an unsolicited marriage, telling the silent crowd not to look “butch” or “ugly”.
“Ladies, here’s what you need to know about men: don’t give him a reason to be like that ‘distracted friend’. You hear me?” Says Clark to a resounding silence.
“Don’t give him a reason to look around. Why is it so often that women let go after they get married?
“Well, look, I’m not saying that every woman can be epic – the epic trophy woman of all time like Melania Trump – I’m not saying that at all.”
The father added, “You know makeup? Makeup is a good thing!
“My little boy said, ‘Why do girls wear makeup and perfume?’ Because they’re ugly and smelly. You don’t want to be ugly and smelly “.
The viral clip sparked a response from the General Baptist Ministries, who said in a statement Monday: “[Clark’s] The sermon contained comments inconsistent with the positions and values of the Baptist General.
“Consistent with our structure, the Executive Committee recommended that the Association Council and MoArk Presbytery investigate the statements and take appropriate action.”
The statement also confirmed that Clark will no longer host the General Association of General Baptist meeting next year.
Many went to Twitter to exclaim the preacher’s hypocrisy.
“I find it strange that an extremely obese man would teach women about weight gain after they get married,” wrote one user.
“It looks like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.”
