The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has been harshly criticized on twitter by feminists for extolling the virtues of his wife in a birthday message.
In the controversial birthday message, Adeboye described his spouse as the Proverbs 31 woman who still cooks and serves him food.
The 78 years old pastor wrote, “The husband is the head of the wife. No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times. It is a terrible thing for the husband to feel that his wife is his head. Many men are misbehaving in their marriage because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives.
“Also, my wife is my number one fan. She wrote in the book Mathematics of marriage- which we coauthored, that as my help meet she knows she cannot help me without my instructions, so when they come, her response is ‘Yes sir’.
“Busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serve me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. My wife still trims my nails for me.”
Although the message was well-received by many of Adeboye’s followers, several feminists on social media called out the cleric for promoting patriarchy and male chauvinism.
On Twitter, Adeboye was trending at number one on Tuesday amid the raging controversy.
