Not no more

Let's get one thing out of the way: Kirk Cameron is cute. This is why it such a screaming shame he fell in with the wrong crowd and became a creationist dickweasel fundamentalist Christian. And he dragged his dumb sister into temptation with him, and now look at what she's become. Pfffffft, these people.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]But hey, maybe he has some Good Advice for how to spice things up in our holy matrimonial heterosexual fuck dungeons! Or maybe he just wants to tell ladies it doesn't matter if he's beating you, because it's probably not your fault for submitting the right way.

Let's dive in:

"A lot of people don't know that marriage comes with instructions," Cameron explained. "And, we find them right there in God's word."

Can we dive back out and say fuck this? GRRRRRR. OK, cool, marriage instructions are in the Bible. We know according to Leviticus we aren't supposed to make whoopee upon our wife during her monthly visit from Aunt Flo, because the Bible says that's EW YUCK.

But Kirk Cameron knows some other parts of the Bible that have good advice too:

Cameron stated that husbands are "to love their wives and not to tell their wives that they need to submit to them," and added that wives are to respect and follow their husband's lead.

"Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband's lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband," Cameron explained. "When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage."

OK, we used to be an evangelical (WHOA IF TRUE, and it is true!) so we can interpret this and tell y'all right where it leaves sanity behind and takes a nosedive into Fuckoff Canyon. There is this thing in evangelical circles, about how the godless secular world is all obsessed with these Bible verses from Ephesians:

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.

This was written by Paul, who got affirmative actioned into the Bible for reasons we do not know. But corny evangelicals are like, "You silly geese! You're not reading the whole passage!" And they are correct when they say that, because there are some more verses:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

See? A good Christian wife is supposed to do what Jesus Daddy Husband says, but Husband is supposed to care for her SO GOOD JUST LIKE JESUS, and pastors preach a million goddamned sermons a year on how if everybody is doing their role correctly, then Bible marriage is balls-out ridonkulously amazing.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]SPOILER: It doesn't always work out that way! Because it gets drilled into little girls' heads that they are to be submissive, and that, if bad things are happening to them (like maybe their husbands are beating or raping them, even though religious right matriarch Phyllis Schlafly says marital rape doesn't exist, because she is an asshole), it's probably partially their fault anyway. That's why the "regardless of how their spouse is treating them" is where Cameron's message gets squicky, gross, misogynistic and bad.

And then, when spooge-nuggets like these people are able to influence public policy, you end up with laws like the thing in Mississippi that says domestic violence is not considered valid grounds for divorce.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]As Horus Gilgamesh over at Patheos points out, Kirk Cameron has actually said he wants his daughters to be like the Duggar girls. You remember them, right? Remember how Anna Duggar is still submitting to her marriage to Pervert McJizzstain Josh Duggar, who fingered his family and had to go to sex rehab because he couldn't stop rage-fucking porn stars?

PLEASE, for the love of God, tell us more about how awesome this whole set-up for marriage is.

On second, thought ... Hey Kirk Cameron, why don't you go suck a buttplug? Thanks.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
