Feet standing on a scale
Is it a woman's duty to remain thin for her husband? That was the thesis of a February sermon from Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark.

A Missouri pastor who told women in his congregation to stay slim, wear makeup, and always be available for sex with their husbands, lest he cheat, is taking a leave of absence to seek counseling.

“Why is it that so many times after getting married, women let themselves go?” pondered Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark of First General Baptist Church in Malden, Missouri. “I really don’t think that women understand how important it is for a man to have a beautiful woman on his arm. It’s really important to a man to do that.”

 “Now, look,” he continued. “I’m not saying every woman can be the epic trophy wife of all time, like Melania Trump. I’m not saying that at all. Most women can’t be trophy wives, but, y’know, maybe a participation trophy? … You don’t need to look like a butch!”

The discussion of women’s bodies, including the perceived necessity of them staying slim and pretty for their husbands went on for roughly 20 minutes.

Thou Shalt Be Hot AF

The February 21st sermon went viral, and on March 2nd, the church announced that Pastor Clark was taking a leave of absence to seek professional counseling. It was initially posted by Facebook user Reagan Williams, who stated that “instead of teaching men and boys to take accountability for their actions and control themselves, [Pastor Clark] degrades women, victim blames, and points the finger at their mere existence. He fails to use Bible verses to back up his nonsense.” She also called his declaration that women should dress in an appealing way to their husband and have zero bodily autonomy is “abusive and controlling”. 

Another Facebook user grabbed some quotes from Pastor Clark before all trace of him was scrubbed from First General Baptist Church’s Facebook page earlier this week. While unverified, Facebook user Savannah Myers said that, in a 2019 Mother’s Day sermon, Pastor Clark bizarrely stated that “If I was a woman, I’d want to be HOT! I’d also want to be a natural blonde. Can I get an amen here?”, instructed girls to change their hair color to look more feminine, and seemingly lamented the wearing of skinny jeans on larger bodies.

From God's Lips to Her Ears

While not mainstream, this type of thinking - that it’s a woman’s duty to stay beautiful for her husband - is prevalent in some Christian circles, even with some women.

Lori Alexander, The Transformed Wife, is a blogger and social media personality who advocates against feminism and believes a woman’s role is in the household, submitting to her husband in all aspects. She has a video on her Youtube channel promoting the belief that women should have sex with their husbands, even when they don’t feel like it, likening it to a man going to work, even if he doesn’t feel like it. “The Bible commands us that we do not deprive our husbands of sexual intimacy,” she states. “This is from God, it’s not from me.”

On her website, she says that “my ministry is based upon Titus 2:3-5 in which God commands that older women teach younger women to be sober, love and obey their husbands, love their children, be chaste, discreet, good, and keepers at home.”

Pastor Clark likely agrees with these statements. At one point in his sermon, he quotes Corinthians 7:4: "The wife has no longer all rights over her body, but shares them with her husband,” then with a chuckle stated, “so whenever she's not in the mood, dig out your Bible.”

Toxic Patriarchy in Action

The comments from Pastor Clark ignited a mild firestorm in Christian circles, reported on at Christian Post, Relevant Magazine, and Religion News Service. And while his “leave of absence” may or may not be permanent, the harm from his comments just might be. During his sermon, he said he’s done marriage counseling in the past, even recalling intimacy advice he’s given to couples, that was, you guessed it, for the female partner to lose weight.

What he seemingly fails to understand is that each relationship has its own dynamics. Not every person is attracted to the same type of body. He’s completely dismissive of the woman’s point of view.

Numerous outlets called this sermon out as toxic patriarchy, the idea that a woman is to blame if her husband cheats or strays. It is an easy road to scapegoating women for every problem in the marriage. He also dismisses concerns about overweight husbands as non-issues, because women aren’t as “visual” as men.

    Both my wife and I have become pretty well rounded in our 43 years relationship. For us, it is a fact of growing older. 26 June will make 39 years wed. I still think her the most beautiful woman in my life.

    The above "Pastor," needs more than just counseling.

    1. Minister Mike's Avatar Minister Mike

      Regretfully, I must disagree. Counseling of the sort meted out by high school principals and my Father back in the day, would, most likely, do him a world of good.

      Maybe, when you've been married to the same woman as long as I've been married to my bride (41 years), you'll gain some wisdom in dealing with unruly children. (that's a joke, son 🤣😜🤣😜😲 )

      Congratulations to you and your wife, Ealdormon! My mother and stepfather have been married for forty five years, and my brother and his husband have been married for about 24. However, I'm still a bachelor at 58, so I think it's safe to assume I always will be.

      However, I asked Elizabeth Garcia (the one from Galveston) to marry me 27 times in 15 years, and the last time she finally said she would, if I bought her a house. On my income though, it would have to be a shotgun house, and she'd have to imagine the rest.

        Thank you, things were in doubt 70 months ago when I received a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Fortunately, it was caught early, had successful surgery, which was followed by relatively mild chemo for 6 months.

        No signs of active disease since the surgery in early June that year.

        When Anita and I were discussing the possibility of needing Final Arrangements, she asked me what epitaph I wanted on my grave marker. "He fulfilled his wedding vows," was my answer.

    As has been said by a few of my associate ministers, I think the fat pastor needs to objectively look at himself in a mirror. He is obviously fat and out of shape. His attitude is chauvinistic and thoughtless. If he had any concern he would also want to be a man that his wife could be proud to be seen within public and in front of his congregation. He is shortsighted at best.

    His opinion is of course total trash talk and should have been booed off the stage. It was interesting to watch him refer to his notes, in what appears to be his bible, using it as a prop, both literally and figuratively. That was a sleazy attempt to lead the audience into believing he was referencing his bible to support his trash talk. Counselling has apparently been 'recommended', but I think the starting point might be a psychiatric asement.

    Often in popular culture, there are images of grossly overweight men with relatively thin wives (e.g. the TV show "King of Queens"). I believe that this example implants in people's minds that its OK for the husband to let himself go, but the wife has to stay svelte. I can't imagine women subjugating themselves to a man this way, absent a medical issue or a guy with a lot of money. Does Melania really find the Donald sexually attractive? One tries not to have the image of it in one's consciousness. Also, in my experience, if one spouse is overweight, then both are overweight.

If a woman let's herself go, after the Honeymoon, she too has issues, if only that her husband doesn't understand the biological need for Hugging.

    He obviously needs to do some self examination, living in a big fat glass house like that. It is important to stay healthy (not obese) for yourself and others. Society's pendulum has swung too far from fat shaming to embracing unhealthy lifestyles so that we don't hurt anyone's feelings. We have one body and the better we care for it, the longer it will last. The makeup and presentation thing is purely cultural. Elevating it to a Biblical command is extreme.

    I really liked that preaching, because I really needed a GODD-LAUGH! Ha-ha has Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark, broke his mirror, and is unable to see what he looks like, give me a break, what's good for the drake, is good for the ducks! BUT! @ I do not agree.com, with this Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark, and I am so happy he is getting help! "GOD" bless him, I hope when counseling is over, he comes with a more compassionate outlook of/to reality, and stop dictating to the world. I once was a model, did race-ways, Clairol, and more, but I got older, had cancer twice, and extra surgery, was, Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark trying to say, (I'm not married) but if i was that my husband should forget for better or worse, in sickness or health, until death do us part? Like my book just published "Hodgepodge of Life". Is exactly what we are living. Presently, life is hard, complicated, isolated, why is, Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark adding to the problem, rather preach a solution. We all are not a Melania Trump, and that is good, because variety is what makes life fantastic, be happy for who you are, and love the you. The more I write I realize this Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark, is made me mad; who the HELL, does he think he is to give an abusive advice, to be like someone else! No! Love yourself; we all try to keep ourselves, well. Sadly, in life things happen! Wow! Glad I was not sitting at that sermon, or well, let me end, I am glad he is in counseling! Look me up; that kind of rhetoric has no place in our society, but especially in church! lastly, let me end, by saying; we may need to give Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark, slack, perhaps his better half, said, something about how he looks. Then preached to get back, still revenge is wrong, either way, in my book, he fails to win at his narrow-minded views, opinion, and judgment!

    This "pastor" is not preaching what the Bible says. For example, 1Timothy 2:9 reads, "also that the women should dress themselves modestly and decently in suitable clothing, not with their hair braided, or with gold, pearls, or expensive clothes, but with good works, as is proper for women who profess reverence for God." and in 1Peter 3:3-4 "Do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair, and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing; rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God's sight."

    The former first-"lady" is hardly a role model for anything Christian.

    Men and women are both created in God's image and deserve respect and honor. That too was sadly lacking in the former administration. In fact, I see very few fruit of the Holy Spirit in anything done by the former-president and his family. Holding them up as role models and examples is just idolatry.

    It's always the ones built like SpongeBob. But seriously, he is completely using the word out of context and only using part of it. Husbands are also supposed to submit their bodies to their wives and not refuse them unless it's mutually agreed upon as part of a fast. Also, not all men like thin women, or makeup. My fiance prefers me big and hates when I wear makeup.

    Many people these days have an opinion seemingly based in ego. It’s not a bad idea to try to put the needs of others needs ahead of your own. It is very easy to get self centered in these matters and to stop working on the relationship - just get stuck in a rut of "comfort" and "sloth". Sacrifice of the little “s” self is at the heart of spiritual growth- how to do that? Prayer... and attempting to keep intimacy in the marriage...perhaps the best thing to do would be to stick to principles and then allow the populace to interpret them for themselves - since God speaks to each of us individually.

    So we understand what was said, along with the feedback his comments received. What if we asked ourselves, what may our intentions may be with story? It’s very clear his words were taken on as hurtful and rather degrading. I have noticed, change happens when history no longer repeats itself. With that said, how could he have voiced his message differently? What if his intentions were pure? So it has been told, evil is sneaky. Given this situation, what if his intentions were genuine? If his intentions were pure, that is a deep desire for spouses to stay in unity for the well-being of all Gods children, would we feel the same way? Or would we find ourselves inspired with compassion? That is, possibly an eagerness towards a solution for the way his intentions are delivered in the future? Ultimately, for the well-being of all in these trying times, protecting the foundation of unity within a Godly marriage? Evil isolates before it kills. As he is one of ours, what if evil has done exactly what it wanted? Clearly this man has a desire for spreading the word of God. Along with a passion towards keeping families together. What if, this is God calling on us to pick up our brother when he is down?

    So we understand what was said, along with the feedback his comments received. What if we asked ourselves, what may our intentions may be with story? It’s very clear his words were taken on as hurtful and rather degrading. I have noticed, change happens when history no longer repeats itself. With that said, how could he have voiced his message differently? What if his intentions were pure? So it has been told, evil is sneaky. Given this situation, what if his intentions were genuine? If his intentions were pure, that is a deep desire for spouses to stay in unity for the well-being of all Gods children, would we feel the same way? Or would we find ourselves inspired with compassion? That is, possibly an eagerness towards a solution for the way his intentions are delivered in the future? Ultimately, for the well-being of all in these trying times, protecting the foundation of unity within a Godly marriage? Evil isolates before it kills. As he is one of ours, what if evil has done exactly what it wanted? Clearly this man has a desire for spreading the word of God. Along with a passion towards keeping families together. What if, this is God calling on us to pick up our brother when he is down?
