Jonathan Shelley, a preacher of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Hurst, Texas, who has previously made headlines for his extremist anti-LGBTQ+ views, declared that women should not be allowed to hold political office.
He went even further, saying he wouldn't even vote for Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene—a darling of the far-right who has used her own platform to promote conspiracy theories and hateful rhetoric of her own—because she's a woman.
During a recent sermon, Shelley expressed annoyance with the Republican Party because "Most of their recent candidates are women" and went on to target Greene specifically.
"We need men to stand up and say, ‘Get back in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!' And you know what? Some pastors need to tell their wives to do that.”
The video of Shelley's remarks quickly circulated online and many noted that it offered a striking example of the misogyny within the Republican Party.
