A California pastor demonstrated his Christian ‘love’ by comparing women who happen to enjoy sex to “filthy dishrags,” in a video that sounds like something out of the mouth of a Taliban cleric.
Paul Chappell, founder a president of the West Coast Baptist College and pastor of Lancaster Baptist Church, loudly complained that women today lack the modesty he feels is required of them.
“One wonders, whatever happened to purity?” he asked his congregation. “Whatever happened to that? Whatever happened to the days when girls said, I’m not going to be touched by every guy? I’m not going to walk down the aisle like a filthy dishrag on my wedding day. Whatever happened to that day?”
“I speak no ill against someone who’s had difficulty in sin in their past, but from this day forward it’s not wrong when a couple-hundred teenagers came up here a few weeks ago and made a purity pledge — that’s a wonderful thing,” Chappell said of the church’s recent celebration of the sexual subjugation of the females.
“I don’t want to sound weird tonight — there’s a reason when ladies come up here to sing that the rule, if you want to use it, the standard – I don’t care what you call it, call it legalism, call it control – I don’t care what you call it, there is a standard in this church that the dresses are going to come down to the knee when a lady stands up here,” Chappell said in criticism of women who do not wear clothes straight out of the 1800’s.
“You can call me every name you want to call me,” he said as he pulled out a pen. “Just fill my name in the blank.” Chappell said people wonder why he’s “old-fashioned” in his attitude towards women, though many would say he’s a misogynistic pig.
“I get so sick and tired of going to weddings and, it’s the bride’s day, and here’s some Jezebel with hardly any clothes on strutting around the wedding,” he said. “Look – you come to a wedding around here, show some respect to the bride. You go to a funeral, women do the exact same thing.”
“You come to the house of God, it ought not to be a flesh show!” Chappell added. “It ought to be a place where Jesus is lifted high and his holiness is remembered.”
