Now Christians are targeting women who wear pants

These people will not stop until the US looks like the Handmaids tale, or the Amish community, the Puritans from the 1600s.   The won’t stop until they get control over women as chattel slaves like their bible claims they should be, owners of the women.     The don’t want females to have rights, to have agency, and to have worth other than as property to men.   To me they are disgusting and more like Incels who think women exist only for men’s pleasure.   How horrible but this is where they are driving the country.   They want a world where cis white straight Christian males have the only rights with automatic authority / privilege, women exist as property of men, blacks are workers and unpaid labor, and the LGBTQ+ are not heard of being too scared of the punishments of being known.    That is the world of the Islamic Taliban that the white Christians want to make here in the US.   Hugs

The religious right has celebrated the overturn of Roe v. Wade, but their obsession with controlling women’s bodies knows no satisfaction.

Now a far-right preacher known for his vile rants about the LGBTQ community is calling for men to burn their wives’ pants because, he says, it’s just a form of crossdressing.

Brother Duncan Urbanek spread the love of God by using anti-gay slurs and encouraging men to destroy their spouses’ possessions. Urbanek is a member of the Stedfast Baptist Church, one of the most vicious anti-LGBTQ hate groups in the nation. Church leaders have called for the execution of gay men and publicly celebrated tragedies that killed members of the LGBTQ community.

“People want to get so riled up… Yeah! F*gs are an abomination. God hates ’em,” he begins. “Well, didn’t it just say if you’re a crossdresser, you’re an abomination too?”

“Now obviously it’s not as bad as being a fa***t,” he continued, “But God is still very upset with your sin.”

“No what should we do about that, knowing this as Christians? If you’re a woman and you own any pants, throw them away. Light them on fire. If you’re a man and your wife has pants, throw them away. And if she yells at you, so be it. Throw them away. That’s a good fight to be in.”

“If I was caught wearing a dress and that was online,” he said as his strange rant continued, “I would do everything in my power to get rid of that picture. Like, man, I gotta find the owner of it and persuade him. I gotta pay him off. Like, man, please delete that picture.”

“You know, there is no picture of me wearing a dress,” he added quickly with a nervous chuckle, “because I’m never going to put one on. I don’t own any and I don’t want to wear any. And women should have that same standard.”

There is no Biblical injunction that’s specifically about women and pants. At the time the Bible was written, trousers weren’t part of the Jewish wardrobe and men wore tunics and robes.

  1. Yeah uh, so, what happens to men in Scotland who wear those, “skirts”, huh? Why don’t the narrow-minded Christianity go after them too? This is like the feet-binding practices of Ancient China, because mwn like to see women walk that way…

    1. Hello taurusingemini. Yes it is about controlling women it seems to me. Also in their minds the US is the country god chose and created for his faithful people so they don’t think about what the other people in those heathen countries do. You always hear that god will do this or that bad thing to the world if the US allows same sex marriage, or recognizes trans rights, or lets women have rights. When you remind them that other countries have been letting these things happen for decades, they say it doesn’t matter, god only cares about what the US does. See these jerks are only interested in what they can get out of the system. They know they cannot yet change the world, but they can force change here in the US if they get control or the political party, which they did. They want to control everyone, force everyone to do what they say not only to please their god but to please themselves also. It is all about their control and their wishes / desire. Hugs

    1. Hello undergroundcartoonist. That is an interesting way of putting it. He is preaching something, but I think it is more than just hypocrisy. I am a bit curious over his fixation on himself in a dress, but hey if that is what he is into no skin off my clothing choices. 😀😂😄😋😊😉 Hugs

  2. Not withstanding his overall POV, I have to ask why he thinks he can make this determination: But God is still very upset with your sin. Has he spoken DIRECTLY to “God”? Or could this possibly be his OWN interpretation of what HE thinks “God” feels?

    These preachers –and some believers– are so far off the deep end it’s almost comical!

    1. Hello Nan. I agree whole heartedly. Yes I honestly think he believes he has gods private phone number. That the supreme deity take the time to commune with this one human regularly. Do they understand how big the universe really is. It is far bigger than even our scientists thought. With all that to oversee and manage I doubt god has time or interest in the planet lice infecting this one small world amongst the trillions of trillions of trillions of other ones. Why are these people so egotistical. And the way they act if I was them I wouldn’t want to attract gods attention to myself. But really these people get so hung up on the stupidest things, pants and dresses. Really it is about control of women, but do they realize men wore dresses and togas most of the history of mankind? And sports were played nude? Hugs

      1. Scottie … it is totally about CONTROL … period! Sure, they focus on women because the female gender (as a rule) is more subservient, but when push comes to shove, they want THEIR god to be front and center in ALL people’s lives.

        As for the size of the universe … not an issue. It’s the people on THIS planet (and especially in THIS country) that they want to control. But I agree … if they had any level of intelligence at all, they would realize how small and petty their “demands” are in the BIG picture!

        1. Hello Nan. I agree with you it is about total control over everyone. They have made that clear in the last year and half. Plus they are getting more strident that their god, and only their god, must be obeyed. All because they know any lawsuit against them would go to a highly religious supreme court that has already said their god is the supreme authority in the US. So Nan, how do we mount an active defense and refute their view of the notion that we are all required to follow their church doctrines? You know these types far better than I, so what do we do to combat them? Hugs

          1. Regrettably, as individuals, there’s not much we CAN do since they have the numbers, along with a goodly number of politicians, AND the Supreme Court in their corner. However, having said that, I don’t think we’ll ever slide into a completely religious country. (Although the non-religious who live in certain states –Florida?– may be at a distinct disadvantage.)

            One of the undercurrents to all this is the number of people who may not be “religious” (don’t attend church, don’t pray, don’t evangelize) but, nevertheless, believe in the core platform of Christianity. These are the ones I find most worrisome because they probably won’t fight any kind of “takeover” since they don’t fully realize all that that entails.

            1. Hello Nan. All great points. Where do you think the secular community should put it efforts, in combating the actively religious or in convincing the not really religious who still have a core acceptance of Christianity? Hugs

              1. I think it’s been shown in several ways –but especially on the internet– that the hardcore are not going to change. I know several bloggers continue to try –and frequently offer some VERY good arguments– but when push comes to shove, I really don’t think they’re gaining much ground.

                Overall, I think the focus should be on the borderline believers. IMO, they would be the easiest to convince. Many of them left the faith because they saw the fallacies of religion. Others weren’t indoctrinated as youngsters so they simply “follow the crowd” and aren’t dyed-in-the-wool believers. And for many, church and religion is just “the thing to do.”

                But overall, it would be a VERY big project so I wouldn’t count on too many successes. Regrettably, “Christianity” is pretty solidly embedded in America.

                1. Hello Nan. I take comfort in the numbers of the no religion group is rising while the numbers polling Christian or religious is falling. It may only take another 100 years or so until we have a secular country again. Hugs

  3. “You know, there is no picture of me wearing a dress,” he added quickly with a nervous chuckle, “because I’m never going to put one on. I don’t own any and I don’t want to wear any. …” I can say the same thing about myself. I stopped wearing skirts years ago, though I still dressed professionally when I worked. More power to those people who enjoy dresses! I hate ’em. They’re not practical for most human functions; they’re awkward; you always have to think about whether your stockings are safe (I know, most women don’t wear those) or if your slip is straight (plus the freakin’ shoes! Shoes I loved in my teens and 20s.) An important point to me is that if a situation comes up, it’s the devil to run
    in dresses/skirts. My .02. They can take my pants from my cold, dead hands (then give them to someone who needs a pair of pants.)

    1. Hello Ali. Thank you for a women’s point of view. I do think he is too fixated on his own wearing of dresses. I personally don’t think there is a male clothing or female clothing, I think that idea is silly. I think clothing should only be worn for protection of the elements and for personal decoration as the person chooses. I will say that the wearing of a skirt is something that should be done only in safe environments, just personal experience. Best wishes and hugs

      1. It occurred to me he may be protesting too much about clothing, but I didn’t want to presume. 😉

        I also feel that these ministers should direct their cis het males to control themselves and exemplify that, rather than yoking women in apparel that makes resistance even tougher. Thanks, Scottie!
