    Kirk Cameron needs someone to tell him that he's a wash up whose movies are openly mocked for how bad they are.

    The problem is the man should honor his wife and that wasn't stated.

    his ego is so large he would never see it. he needs to learn humility before preaching women should do it.

    You're going to judge him by what he DIDN'T say? He also didn't say they should take care of their kids, go to church, or respect their elders. What a dick.

    Nice language, keep it classy at least, I'm saying that in the bible which he was quoting, it says the woman shall honor her husband, but mentions nothing about the husband honoring his wife, and quite frankly, women were pretty bad off back then, they were essentially treated much like slaves. So him quoting the bible doesn't exactly make him look good without amending that second part on it.

    Yup, that's him.
    He is the guy who said not finding a crocoduck disproves evolution.
    Kirt and his buddy Ray are experts on everything that has to do with science

    What's wrong with this statement?
    I don't know and don't care who this person is, but I see nothing wrong with this statement?
    Shouldn't women honor their husbands and men honor their wives?

    Much ado about nothing.

    Nothing, but you are missing the context.

    Actually, the Bible DOES tell us to honor and respect our wives. Just because the article doesn't mention it doesn't mean it isn't there:

    Wow! I know! PRSI is awash in postings about Kirk Cameron! I mean, prior to this thread, there was one mention only 11 months ago!! And another just a short 14 months before that!! And prior to that, it was just mere seconds, or rather 16 months. You just cannot get away from it!!!

    Really? Daily or hourly? More like less than yearly. But don't worry, you're only off by a factor of 400 or 9,500.



    But I'd really love someone to come tell my wife "You are to honor and respect and follow your husband's lead, not to tell your husband how he ought to be a better husband. You don't know that marriage comes with instructions." Let me know how far you get. Because if I said it, I'd probably end up on the couch for a month and never get to touch her boobs again.

    That's what people have issues with. Not that a woman should "honor" her husband, but that the woman should bow down and do only as the husband instructs her or allows her to do.

    "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything."
    - Ephesian 5:22-24

    This is what Kirk is referencing. There's no mincing words; it quite clearly says that the "role of a woman" is to be submissive to her husband.

    Well, the Bible, for one. Secondly, that's how I interpret "honor and respect and follow your husband's lead"

    I'll admit I'm no Bible scholar, but I don't recall the Bible saying that a woman should "bow down and do only as her husband instructs her or allows her to do." Sounds to me like something somebody in this thread made up.

    The Bible instructs the man of the house to be the leader. I'm sure we can all agree that being a leader does not have to mean to disrespect or issue commands to those who follow. And I'm not aware of any instance where the Bible says that the leader of the house must disrespect or issue commands to his followers. I think if that's how YOU see it, then that's your shortcoming, not Kirk Cameron's.

    Why did he not just say that in the first place?
    --- Post Merged, May 5, 2016 ---

    If they are crappy husbands, then yes they should say something.

    One does not need god to figure out how to be married or even have a good marriage. Common sense and respect for each other can do wonders.

    Also, you judged me based off of what I didn't say, is that a pot calling the kettle black?

    My parents have been married 65+ years and all during those years there have been nothing but mutual respect for one another. Granted there have been arguments over the years, but they always made up. They had a motto - "Never go to bed angry". Kirk Cameron is just simply an idiot.
