Meet Reverend Phil Kidd, the charming homophobic anti-feminist “man of God” who just wants us ladies to “shut up” once in a while.

"Shut up," Kidd tells his wife through brain messages, in this cozy and heartwarming family portrait

"Shut up," Kidd tells his wife through brain messages, in this cozy and heartwarming family portrait.

This all around good natured guy has some advice for us women.  Behold, “Hey Lady, Shut Up!”

In I Corinthians 14:34 we read, “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak,- but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.” This verse is not implying that al women that speak in the church are out of order, there are certain times when it is right for women to be vocal in the assembly. First, when they Receive Salvation they should be glad to confess Christ as their Saviour. Second, when they Repent of Sin and they need to make public confession before the church. If the transgression is known by the church and they want to get right then confession should be given to the church. Third, when they Rejoice In the Spirit they have the right to praise the Lord. The Bible says everything that has breath has a right to praise the Lord. But there are some times when the Scripture commands woman to shut up!

First, they are commanded to shut up concerning the Authority of the Church. I Timothy 2:12 tells us that a woman is not to usurp authority over the man. God never has called a woman to preach. I know some “mainline” churches are ordaining woman to pastor their churches. Even radio and television are now promoting female pastor’s. What a sad day, seeing woman open the bible and expound the scriptures. Eve, in the Garden of Eden, in a perfect surrounding could not even quote on verse correct. I sure would not trust a woman to expound truth in this sin cursed mess we live in. Some sorry Baptist Churches are now letting woman teach men and boys classes. No wonder America has turned “Sodomite”. Too many young men have had too many woman as their voice of authority.

Second, they are commanded to shut up concerning the Administration of the Church. Usually when I start dealing with the business of leadership in the church most pastor’s bow their heads. Why? Because Pastor’s all across this this land are allowing woman to hold positions that they have no right to hold. It makes me sick to watch a woman stand on a platform and lead a choir with men in it, or even worse to see a woman lead the whole congregation! Singing is an important part of the worship service. This office is not a calling, but it should be led by a man with leadership ability. .

Many Baptist churches have even put women on their pulpit committees. Can you imagine going to a church in view of a call and having a woman asking you questions concerning your doctrinal stand? Someone needs to tell them to sit down and shut up!

Third, women are commanded to shut up concerning the Apparel of the Church. 11 Timothy 2:9 commands the woman to dress in modest apparel. I have personally seen that in a large percentage of churches, the long tongued, rebellious, bobbed-haired, preacher-hating, pants-wearing, liberal-minded women have determined the standard of dress for the church. The cowardly preacher is afraid to cross this group. He knows if he does, these loud-mouthed women will take their weak husbands and go to another church. Sadly, most woman pull their hair, grit their teeth, and even yell back when the preacher deals with modest dress. Some will even get mad just reading this article. I say to you, SHUT UP!

In conclusion, I wish to defend the women of our churches for one reason. The fact that women are taking the leadership in our churches is the result of sorry men that will not get involved and do their part. At least some woman are willing to do something! So, you good-for-nothing, hen-pecked men that have been laughing your way through this article, you need to get off your lazy back-side and do something for God. Your wife runs the home because you are too sorry to run it yourself Lady, when your sorry husband dies, please marry a man next time.

This guy is entertainingly ridiculous.  Unfortunately, it seems that he’s got some pretty hardcore followers who think he’s pretty great.  Let’s just agree to disagree.

Well, the thing I would say is simply that Dr. Kidd is known for saying things bluntly. He was raised in the South and certainly respects women. I know that is a fact. You took one sermonette and ran with it as if that is the picture of the man as a whole. We are conservative Christians and do have standards of dress we adhere to. We do believe that the Word of God specifically states that certain affairs have been delegated to men according to God’s plans, but we do not put down, hate, disrespect or demoralize women. Dr. Kidd would agree with me that women are just as precious to God and His work as men are. We practically put our wives on pedestals compared to the other men of the world. We make no apologies that we do not cheat on them, try to have sex with them before marriage, beat them, or abuse them verbally as a group. Sure, there probably are some independent Baptist men who are that way, but the vast majority of us are not. He has blasted his own movement for things he sees wrong in them. He was probably stirred up over some woman “preacher” or an issue close to that. Then again, feminists cannot accept that God has an ordained order to this world which almost always includes a man being in a position of headship over the woman, Chew on that and I expect the attitude will be one of flabbergasted bewilderment and this post will either be deleted or treated as hate speech. Either way, I am used to it.
