Male supremacy: An idea whose time may at last be here

Meet Pastor Bill Lytell of the Gospel Baptist Church in Bonita Springs, Florida. He’s got a pretty fab new insight into how God wants things to work: Men should always be the boss of ladies, and not ever the other way around, because of God’s mighty penis and the hefty testicles of Adam, Moses, and Jesus (make no mistake though, they all lived at different times, and therefore their weighty mansacks never touched, so no homo).

Lytell was pretty jazzed about all the great publicity the church got last month when a 9-year-old boy — a pre-man, if you will — found a loaded gun in the church’s bathroom and brought it home with him, because of all the exposure the news story gave to the church’s “Male Leadership” sign.

And I'm proud to be a 'Merkin...

And that’s going to go out throughout the whole county. Do you know what we’d have had to pay to do something like that? That was probably a hundred thousand dollar gift.

Maybe, we dunno — we’re pretty sure you have to pretend to be oppressed first before anyone will give you a hunnert thousand bucks these days. But maybe! In any case, Lytell would prefer that male parishioners please not leave their guns in the bathrooms any more, if only to avoid overexposure of the brand. Also, too, Male Leadership is the Best Leadership — and really, the only leadership, going right back to Adam, the Real Guy who lived about 6000 years ago when the Earth was made out of God’s Own Duplo Blocks, and woman was made out of either dust or Adam’s rib, both of which happened:

Don’t you be ashamed you go to a church with male leadership. Every church that’s right with God oughta have a sign: “Male Leadership.” Because that’s the only kind of leadership, both from Adam all the way to the last part of the Bible. It’s all been male. This is a man’s world! And all the men said… [pause, then manly voices say “Amen!”]

There aren’t many places were men can ever rejoice anymore without feeling about half-ashamed because they try to put you down or sue you or something, but brother this is a man’s world. You can say what you want, you can do what you want, but God made Adam in leadership and it’s going to end with a man in leadership. It doesn’t make men better, it’s just God’s way!

Look, ladies, this is a simple matter of history and reality, so don’t you go putting on pants or thinking you can run things, or suing for “discrimination,” because as we all know from the Bible, you need a man to tell you how things work.

And no matter how hard you wish it, you will never ever be able to strap Rev. Lytell into a time machine and tell him to give Elizabeth I a good talking-to about how she upset the natural order. We know this will never happen because there are no 16th-Century woodcuts depicting a man with a 1962 Mission Control buzzcut having his head lopped off at the Tower of London.

      Everyone knows Jesus wore the pants in His family. Um .. except for the actual pants. And the actual family.

      • Paperless Tiger

        Actually, he did wear trousers, because he was a Medieval Russian nobleman who ruled in Jerusalem, which, in the XII century, was at the site of Yoros (Yorosalem) on the Bosphorus. In Medieval art, he generally appears in his official vestments of red tunic and blue mantle as Pantocrator, or all-ruler, which is to say, King of Kings.

      When the wimmenz take over the laws will be promulgated that toilet seats are fixed in the down position and cannot be raised for ever and ever. A little sign will be affixed to each toilet seat: “If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be sweet and wipe the seat–or else!”

    Yup, this is a “man’s world” alright. Disease, poverty, famine, wars, pollution, discrimination…I’m glad you’re owning the mess your sex has made, Mr. Pastor! It takes a big man to lay claim to his (and his genders) screwups.

    He didn’t, but a guy named John Knox did, in a fabulous tract entitled “The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstruous Regiment of Women” published in 1558 and directly aimed at Elizabeth.

    This did not go well for him or those that published the tract – as I recall, the publisher and printer both lost their right hands (a considerable improvement over the original sentence, which was the usual hanging and quartering and so forth) and Knox’s fate was even worse: he had to publicly acknowledge that Elizabeth was awesome and sent by God Himself to save England.

    He was Scottish.

    I’ll bet he’d have rather been killed.

    • Vienna Woods

      Pedantic point- Elizabeth wasn’t queen when he wrote it- but the Catholic Queen Mary was, and he hated her even more. and also, too, Mary Queen of Scots and her mom Mary of Guise, also Catholics. Elizabeth was really pissed off with it too, but she wasn’t the main target. But since he was Scottish, then a separate country, the best she could do was refuse him passage through England for him to return from Geneva.

      • Angry_Cop

        You are entirely correct – he wrote it originally for Mary. But Elizabeth was the one who dished out the punishment.

        He wasn’t the only one by a longshot. Virtually all her councillors thought it was an abomination for a woman to rule, and told her so repeatedly. Too bad, so sad. She outlived them all and died, still ruling England.

    • doktorzoom

      And this is why I love our commenters. Fascinating stuff, but now I also haz a sad because there’s more amazing reading I will probably not get around to.

      • Angry_Cop

        Recommended: Carrolly Erickson’s “The First Elizabeth”. She did four, one on Elizabeth, one on her father, one on her mother (Anne Boleyn) and one on her sister, Mary. The Elizabeth book and the Henry VIII book are fantastic.

        • Mehmeisterjr

          Wait a minute! Carrolly Erickson is a woman! How dare she write books?

        • SpideySenser

          Oh yeah, Lizzie #1, another one of my faves. Brilliant woman, of course considering the times she had to do some gruesome, brutal stuff, but in addition to political genius and strategy for eliminating enemies, she was also a polyglot. And don’t forget the Armada. Normally I am not fond of the Brits and the expansion of European colonialism (hate it) but it was what it was and she was NOT to be messed with.

  • SpideySenser

    Ya know, men complain all the time about having to put up with PMS for a few days every month. How about the poor women who have to put up with these crazy testosterone fueled junkies every fucking minute of every fucking hour of every fucking day all year long?

    • cleos_mom

      Indeed; it’s not difficult to argue that it’s men who are totally ruled by their emotions and their hormones.

    • CthuNHu

      Hey, at least they can leave the room. We’re stuck with ourselves.

      • SpideySenser

        Perhaps, but the usual expectation for the man, at least, is that the womenfolk will stand there all slack jawed and wide eyed at the brilliant mansplaining going on. When in actuality the poor thing is doing her societal duty to behave while she’s really got her mind on the pool boy/tennis instructor.

    This is an example of fig leaf envy in its purest form.

  • Mormos

    i wish these people would read some Joe Campbell or shut the fuck up. Look, in the genesis creation myth God created Adam genderless, or as both genders, because He made him in His image, and God is a harmony of male and female aspects. It was only after Adam became lonely that humanity was separated into our gendered identities – becoming imperfect. Read the fucking bible, its in there.

    This is where the fucking concept of a soulmate comes from: the human spirit is incomplete because of our separation and requires the other for fulfillment. It makes relationships a partnership instead of a patriarchy – both genders are godly, and both genders are equal. IT IS CALLED DUALITY YOU IGNORANT SHIT!

    In the Greek version of the myth there are three races of people. Male/Female, Male/Male, and Female/Female, and the gods sundered us because they were afraid of our power – the power of man in balance. This is part of the reason ancient Greeks were cool with homosexuality.

    where was i going with this? Oh right. Fuck you dude. At least take your job seriously and TRY to understand religion and spirituality, instead of using it as a tool to justify your misogyny.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      They can’t do that, Dave.

    • cleos_mom

      Actually the book of Genesis has two creation accounts. The other just refers to God having created human beings, “male and female”. The second account doesn’t suggest the idea of a soulmate so much as a “helpmeet” who does a hefty portion of the scutwork and produces a baby every year.

  • Alan Williams

    Eve may have come from Adam’s rib, but God pulled Pastor Lytell straight outta Adam’s ass.

  • cleos_mom

    Churches that adhere to that particular notion have an interesting take on marriage. The man is supposed to stand in for Christ — in Christian theology, God incarnate, one of the three aspects of the Godhead. The woman stands in for the Church, which inspires a broad spectrum of pretty bridal metaphors but basically identifies females with a community of limited, fallible human beings.

    It’s a reworking of the open teaching that men are closer to God than women, who were created to be “helpmeets” in the first place. Not difficult to step from the man=God woman=the Church figure of speech to justify just about anything, and of course some women do buy into it.

  • chascates

    Only a ‘Christian’ would think of washing his handgun in a church bathroom.

      … I’m thinking he would wash his handgun, but not his hands, because FREEDUMB!!!1!

        He prolly didn’t warsh anything. Just laid his gun down on the sink while he shook the dew off his lilly.

        • BackDoorMan

          That makes perfect sense, actually. However, now I want to know why he was pissing in the sink. No, wait – I don’t want to know.

    I have to wonder….If one believes in the Trilogy (the father, the son and the holy ghost not the Hobbit one) which states they are all one. Wouldn’t God doing the mad fandango with Mary to beget Jesus have been incest as God and Jesus are one?

  • Me not sure

    I don’t understand how Adam would have needed a penis before that apple business. Afterward, if God meant giving Adam a penis as punishment , I think he misunderstood the meaning of the word punishment.

  • Kathleen Perez

    Yeah, I want to be “led” by a dumb dude who can be easily led astray by a woman and a talking snake. At least the snake knows what’s going down in that deal. The tree of “knowledge” is forbidden to the faithful because – knowledge=not believing in crazy, biblical fairy tales. Makes sense to me.
