A Christian pastor was the top nationally trending topic on Twitter after he offered unsolicited advice to women and many were outraged and offended.
Brian Sauvé, a pastor at Refuge Church in Ogden, Utah, was accused of misogyny and sexism for his tweet on Monday.
“Dear Ladies, There is no reason whatsoever for you to post pictures of yourself in low cut shirts, bikinis, bra and underwear, or anything similar—ever,” the tweet read.
“Not to show your weight loss journey. Not to show your newborn baby. Not to document your birth story,” he concluded, signing his tweet, “Your Brothers.”
The innocuous tweet received over 2k “likes” and over 9k retweets, but also unleashed a torrent of furious responses from many on the left and others who made the phrase “Dear Brian” trend nationally. Some sent pornographic images attached to their replies.
“I am a proud member of the congregation of the Holy Church of Mind Your Own Damn Business. You should try it sometime. — My Body, My Choice,” replied MSNBC contributor Katie Phang.
“Pastors like you are why the Church is known for misogyny and the subjugation of women more than empathy and equity. You should try the sacred ministry of minding your own damn business,” responded anti-Trump author John Pavlovitz.
“Dear Brian, Your invisible sky daddy doesn’t care how you like to Do It & neither does anyone else, you repressed weirdo. No one is going to ‘share’ anything with you, perv. Please get therapy on how to treat women as the human beings we are,” tweeted liberal author Tara Dublin.
“How little control do you have over yourself that you can’t tolerate women posting pictures like that ‽ We really didn’t need to know that you’re constantly touching yourself and incapable of stopping,” read another tweet.
Sauvé responded to the outrage in several tweets addressing the “liberal feminists” who were upset at him.
“None of us measure up, even to our own standards. We’re all hypocrites, sinners, and moral vagabonds. But Christ died for sinners. Trust him and be free. I don’t hate you. Sincerely, I don’t. I hope that you can find freedom from the crippling weight of your sin through Christ,” he tweeted.
“You will be in my prayers today. May God’s mercy fall on you as it has on me and my house,” he added.
