Colorado pastor Corey Seulean recently announced he’s running to replace Colorado Rep. Lori Saine (R-Firestone), but his ultra-conservative views when it comes to women and pants are raising some eyebrows.
According to the Colorado Times Recorder, Seulean, who is the pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church, tells his congregants that women shouldn’t wear pants because they’re “immodest.”
Seulan’s views were first brought to light after a women commented on a post that went up on the pastor’s candidate Facebook page announcing the kickoff of his campaign.
“Mr. I am going to tell the women of my congregation how to dress?” Melissa Ford wrote on Seulean’s post. “Please pick a better candidate.”
Ford was then asked by another commenter to clarify what she meant.
“We attended his church at one point,” Ford replied. “He would get in front of the congregation and basically tell us women should not wear pants. We should wear skirts or ‘modest culottes’. Not sure that is the best candidate to be putting forward.”
After Ford’s comments, Seulean’s post was deleted, but according to his son and campaign manager Benjamin Seulean, the post’s removal had nothing to do with Ford’s comments.
“I did not delete it because of [Ford’s] comment. I didn’t have a problem with what she said,” Benjamin Seulean told the Colorado Times Reporter, adding that his father’s views on women’s pants are well known.
“Corey has preached from the Bible what he believes, his interpretation and what the Bible says about a woman dressing modestly, and he believes that in today’s day and age, pants on a woman sometimes can show a woman’s body immodestly,” he said. “That’s why he’s taught it’s proper, he believes, for a woman to wear a dress or modest culottes. He might not have used that exact terminology, but he believes yes, a woman should dress modestly, and part of that goes into women not wearing pants.”
“He just preaches the Bible straight as it is, and the Bible says a woman is to dress modestly,” he added.
As evidenced by his campaign website, Corey Seulean also takes strict stances against women’s reproductive rights and LGBT rights.
“God’s Word is very clear that marriage is the holy union between one man and one woman,” the website states. “Our society is aiming at tearing down the traditional family unit and God’s plan for families. Let’s not let wickedness and perversion prevail. God’s ways are always best.”
Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
